EPISODE 2.21: Javianna

  • Previously On: Liam’s dad Finn has skipped town, Jen is in charge of Naomi’s finances, Spence tells teddy to break up with Silver, Navid believes in Ade and doesn’t want to see her sad, Javier is surprised Ade doesn’t have a boyfriend, Navid overhears her saying there is no special guy
  • This is the second to last episode before the season finale.
  • While I don’t know yet how I actually feel about the Javianna coupling, I think the term “Javianna” works awesomely.
  • Oh, and let me also say I am obsessed with the song they sang last week. Okay, on to actual blogging!

  • Fade to black.
  • Preview: The overall voiceover says “It’s the 90210 season finale. All the moments you’ve been waiting for. and some things you’d never expect.” Tedd and Silver are dressed up, holding candles. They smile at each other. Annie and Liam hug. Liam’s boat is on fire at a marina. Liam ducks from the flame. Debbie is crying and yells at Harry that, “We don’t love each other anymore!” Ade is happily surrounded by cheering crowds. Liam tackles Jasper alongside the burning boat and punches him. Annie says to her parents, “There’s something I have to tell you.” At school, Naomi is an a classroom with Mr. Cannon, who says, “Enough with the teasing.” He kisses her forcefully as Silver approaches the classroom. Naomi pushes him off and goes, “Mr. Cannon!”

Those are my thoughts. What’s yours?

I hate to say this but tonight’s episode of 90210 was so forced that it’s not even funny. The only thing that flowed smoothly was the Jasper and Annie thing IMO.

11 05 2010

anyone notice jessica lowndes looks like nelly furtado? Except shes gorgeous-er!!! Ha

11 05 2010

Anyone got the feeling tonight’s episode went back to its 1st season roots?

11 05 2010

Jess did look beautiful and no i didn’t get the season 1 feel at all.

11 05 2010

It is so sad how they are building up the divorce, like we all know they don’t want harry around anymore, but do they have to make him into an @ss? I wish the writers would keep him around and have them work on their marriage.

11 05 2010

@Wes, I guess it’s just me. The episode was soundtrack-filled, similar to what 1st season episodes used to be when the show started its run.

The where “How much money do you want to keep out from my son’s life” and “If you love him/her, you’d stay away from him” is an overused soap opera cliche which I’ve seen countless times on a lot of TV shows, not just BH90210 especially when teenaged lovers are involved.

Sad that the Wilsons are breaking apart but here’s to wishing that 90210 would give good material to Lori Loughlin. her character has so much potential and the show could explore how she’d fare with being a single mom and rediscovering happiness after such a tumultuous year.

And indeed, they should also bring up the Lost Wilson storyline again to at least finally have it under wraps.

11 05 2010

there’s a SPOILER in this paragraph so if you dont wanna know don’t read it. so Naomi is gonna be assaulted/raped by cannon? This is what i thought was gonna happen when that spoiler about the awful thing that happens to naomi was physical. did not expect them to bring back cannon though.

I liked tonight’s episode. It didn’t seem that forced to me. I just can’t wait til next week!

12 05 2010

I was wondering, is Lori Loughlin still going to be on the show next season, or is she leaving along with Rob Estes?

12 05 2010

Oh, and I agree with what you said on the live blog. The One Tree Hill promo definitely felt like a series finale, with the whole goodbye sequence.

12 05 2010

Wes, I’m not sure what you mean by “forced.” Can you elaborate?

Amy, you are so right! Ade did look a lot like Nelly while performing.

James, thanks for elaborating on what you meant by “season 1 roots.” I’m not sure I got the same feeling, though. It’s been so long since I’ve seen early season 1 eps! Those things are definitely cliches, as is the rich vs. poor conflict. The key is to put new twists on them. I think we are kinda sorta maybe getting that here (did I just give the show a compliment? woah). I have no idea how they’re going to handle Debbie going forward and I’m kinda nervous about it. I guess they can’t really do the “Lost Wilson” story, though, with Harry gone and Naomi’s mom seemingly MIA.

vegasgirl, well, there’s conflicting explanations for Rob/Harry leaving. Some said it was the show’s creative choice and others said it was his choice (and still others said it was mutual) so it may not just be up to the writers to keep him around. I’m not sure who to really “blame,” so to speak. But I do think (and I believe I’ve said this before, and I am still being presumptuous given that we’ve haven’t seen everything yet) that it’s crappy just to write him out via marriage issues. That won’t satisfactorily explain his absence for me. This may sound weird to say but I am really hoping there’s a “twist” at the end of the finale, with him suddenly getting hit by a car or something (and I guess that could be kind of interesting given last season’s finale) and dying either in the finale or in the premiere (or between them). That, obviously, would be a sensible way to explain where his character is. And I think it could give Annie, Dixon and Debbie a lot of material to work with, particularly Debbie who could feel so guilty and devastated that he died before they worked out their issues. (I also don’t get why Harry didn’t tell Debbie from the get-go about the Dixon problem. I don’t think they’ve really made Harry into an ass but there’s no real defense for keeping that from her, IMO.)

Lexy, I think that is fair-game to discuss here, given the promo and the information that has been out for weeks and weeks. Yes, I do think Naomi will be sexually assaulted in some way (beyond the kiss from Mr. Cannon in the promo) and it will be a “boy who cried wolf” scenario, given what happened a few weeks ago. I didn’t expect it to be Cannon, either, and I don’t think others did. I had read some boards and people had all sorts of guesses, including a guy we haven’t met yet, but not Cannon.

Kate, yes, as far as we know, Lori will be back next season. Which is why, in regards to what I said to vegasgirl, I personally think the Harry thing was more his choice than the shows. When it broke that he was leaving, the show claimed they wanted to focus more on the younger characters and get rid of the adult ones, but that seems untrue when you consider that Debbie is still around, Ryan and Jen are and there’s other parents that pop in and out. It sounds like the “creative” thing was just an excuse to cover the fact that Rob was truly unhappy with the way the show was going. That said, it could also be the show did want to do less with him and decrease the adult focus, and he just decided it was better to leave. I dunno. I do hope we’ll get “the real story” at some point. I can’t understand why The CW would be doing that promo before announcing a decision. I don’t get it at all.

By forced I meant that they were trying to rush and get all of these storylines going for the season finale instead of slowly building up to those moments like the whole Sixon kiss thing was so forced to me, I understand the divorce had to be forced because of Rob leaving so I’m not complaining about that and this Javianna thing is just annoying and forced to keep Navid and Ade apart for 3 episodes.

TDW I had a flashback to Dallas while reading your comments. Pam and Bobby had broken up and finally reconnected, all was right in the world and then bam he gets hit and killed by a car (viewers later realize we spent a season in Pam’s dream and Bobby was not dead). I think if they did have harry and debbie work thru issues and then something tragic like a car accident kills him there would be more to work with. debbie would feel guilt and regret for lost time and sorrow for her future. she tries to pull it together for the kids. life must go on, but it would put a twist on it. like you said better than just a regular old ho-hum divorce.
And I agree with you, something like the trouble Dixon was in is something that you work at as a team. It made no sence to me that Harry would not talk to Debbie about that. But then again Big Jim never told Cindy about Brandon’s gambling problem.

TDW: A car accident i wouldnt really like…im tired of seeing the wilsons (specifically annie) in peril! She needs some happy. That Mr. Canon thing was totally unexpected!! I just want to see lannie…tho i think it wont fully happen in the finale. And yes, jessica lowndes looked incredible! I never realized how gorgeous she was…oh wait, yea i did. I was surprised to find out teddy and silver havent don anything yet, teddy really doesnt seem like the type who could take that LOL…but seriously. I guess hes ‘in love’ so its ok…and i hated the Sixon (haha) kiss…now that seemed forced. Jasper seemed convincing and i felt bad for him 😦 but hes gonna go psycho in the finale w/ some fire drama right? Liams concern for annie talking to jasper was so sweet. (Damn hes hot!!) and i saw the document!! But i didnt think it would come up again ntil next season (which im so excited about)

Wes, thanks for elaborating. The Sixson kiss wasn’t forced to me because they were drunk. Had they not been and it was seemingly a repeat of 2.12, that would feel forced to me. Part of me thinks it would’ve been a bigger deal if they had slept together, especially since she and Teddy had just done it for the first time, but I guess that would make Silver a bit too slutty. I don’t mind the Harry stuff, either, because I think they’re doing it fairly convincingly. But as I said above, divorce isn’t a good enough reason to explain his absence (if that’s what they end up doing). Completely agree that the Javianna thing is annoying. As I think I said last week or the week before, I wish they kept building Ade and Gia and also built to a Ade-Navid reunion. To introduce this new character for 3 episodes when the same storyline could be done without him–I don’t get it.

vegasgirl, Roseanne also did the whole dream thing. It’s kind of interesting, kind of infuriating. Good point about Jim not telling Cindy about Brandon’s gambling! I guess it would’ve been more harmful had Brandon’s gambling continued or other problems started and she found out. (For this point, I’m ignoring the fact that Brandon’s gambling problem resurfaced briefly in season 6. Doesn’t matter in this case since Jim and Cindy were in Hong Kong by that point.)

Alexandra: I would like to see Annie happy, too, but, since everyone grieves in a different way, it’s entirely possible Harry could die and it wouldn’t make her all devastated and depressed. Of course it would be unrealistic if she was all perky and happy-go-lucky, but I think it could be interesting if they showed her just trying to move on with her life and perhaps not understanding why Debbie and/or Dixon aren’t and vice versa. Yeah, I didn’t buy Teddy and Silver not having done anything before, either! LOL It amazes me how convincing Zachary Ray Sherman can be! I hate the promo already kind of showed us that he’s really not “reformed” or however you want to say it. I also don’t like that the promo showed the Cannon stuff. Would’ve been better if it was 100 percent a surprise. I expected the document to come back in the season finale and through Annie’s parents or Dixon finding it. Didn’t expect Liam to be the one. I wonder how much he really read, though.
