90210 Episode Recap: "The Party's Over" Season 1, Episode 21

In this week's episode, Naomi's sister Jen gets a lot of face time both with her sister, and on her date with Ryan. The girls spend time with Ade at her bridal shower, while the boys take Navid out for a night on the town before he gets married.

JEN, NAOMI AND RYAN

Naomi invites her dad to lunch, but surprises him with her sister's arrival. Jen blackmails her dad (with knowledge of yet another one of his secret affairs) into giving Naomi part of her trust fund money so the two can get a place together.

Meanwhile, at a high-end boutique, Jen tries to take the high road by confronting Naomi's bitchy bully (the daughter of the woman Naomi's dad sexually harassed) in a mature fashion. When that doesn't work, she simply frames her for shop lifting. Well played.

Jen bumps into Ryan at the Peach Pit and tries to flirt with him. Unfortunately, she turns into a babbling idiot — similar to when her sister's around Liam. Regardless, the two make a dinner date where Jen offers to read the novel he's been working on. Why is Ryan such a pimp? Anyways, it turns out Ryan lied about writing a novel and confesses on their date. She offers Ryan a bit of truth to make him feel better and says she blew through her one million dollar trust fund in two months. Of course, Ryan thinks she's just kidding.

It is, however, clear that Jen's true motive for coming back is to get more money through her sister. She even comes up with another lie and tells Naomi her money hasn't been wired correctly from Paris and needs to use hers to buy the house. A trusting Naomi tells her not to worry about it.

ADRIANNA'S SHOWER

Naomi and Annie surprise Ade by throwing her an amazing shower — that is until the games get started. I think I died inside when I watched Annie's mom, the drama teacher (wait, wtf?) and Ade dress up in toilet paper and have a walk-off set to "I'm Too Sexy."

Navid's mother shows up at the party to tell Ade she's making a terrible mistake and that they're not ready. This throws Ade over the edge and she heads straight for the medicine cabinet to pop pills.

NAVID'S BACHELOR PARTY

While the girls are drinking their fruity beverages out of baby bottles, Navid, Liam, Ethan and Dixon are enjoying shots of tequila at a strip club for Navid's bachelor party. Low and behold, along comes a crowd of sorority pledges enjoying a night of hazing.

While Dixon is boring the group with his drunken whining about Silver not wanting to go to prom, a shy pledge Navid had been talking to is forced to strip by a sister (definitely a sorority any self-respecting girl would want to join). Navid comes to her rescue by joining her on stage so she won't have to be alone. When they're done, she tells him he's too young and too cute to get married. Apparently this is enough to send Navid running home to Ade. They get ready to go, and Liam throws down one a stolen credit card to cover the tab.

POST PARTY

Navid rushes into the party and talks to Ade alone, but instead of telling her they may be making a mistake (which we're led to believe), he tells Ade he's so happy he found her. Ade, on the other hand, has some bad news. She confesses she's not ready to raise a baby — not because Navid's mom convinced her, but because she took drugs when she got stressed (which she threw up for the sake of the baby, at least). She finally realized raising a baby less than a year after getting out of rehab isn't exactly the smartest idea. The two lie together and decide there's no point in getting married anytime soon, but are still going to stay together. And she's keeping the ring.

Ethan runs into Silver, and when he tells her that her boyfriend is wasted, Silver blames herself. Ethan decides this is the time to share his theory on relationships that involves islands and bridges (I think he's trying to say compromise is key). Ethan's profound "theory" resonates with Silver, and she ends up asking Dixon to the prom — right before he passes out.

Liam drops Dixon in a bush and while he vomits up a bottle's worth of Jose Cuervo, Liam confronts Annie about telling Naomi about asking her out. Naomi sees the two chatting from a far and is not happy. He helps her put Dixon to bed and tells her he's just intrigued by her. Why? Because Annie is just a volcano waiting to explode — and who doesn't want to see that.

What did you think of this week's episode? Are you happy about Ade's decision? Do you think Liam and Annie will end up together? Are you hoping Jen brings the drama?
