Navid woke up on Silver’s couch after coming over the previous night to vent to her about his family and Adrianna not listening to him. Their feelings for each other were becoming apparent but before they could really talk Ade called him and asked him to hang out. Navid told him he was running errands because he didn’t want to explain that he was really at Silver’s. Apparently Ade was now a rising superstar singer and fame was getting to her head. Later on the whole gang went out to lunch with Ade and her fabulous hanger-ons. But she was too preoccupied with herself (tweeting and calling up the paparazzi) to pay attention to her “non-famous” friends. At Ade’s house later Ade was still not listening to Navid because she was on her phone. So he got fed up and left. Adrianna realized she had been self-absorbed and wanted to do something special for Navid and enlisted Silver’s help. Silver had to lead him to the beach so Ade could show him the special cabana she rented just for them. But before Ade showed up Navid told Silver that he had feelings for her. In the cabana Navid didn’t resist Ade’s kisses.
Meanwhile at school Teddy asked Ian – the guy he hooked up with and who also helped him home from a bar last time – not to tell anyone about their discussions about being gay and that he was just “confused.” Then Silver saw Teddy talking to some girl and told Ian that Teddy was disgusting. Ian defended Teddy and said that Teddy had apologized to him and was really a good guy. At a beach party later that night Silver and Teddy were hanging out and she tried to kiss him. This was after she had dropped off Navid for Adrianna and their talk about each other’s feelings was left hanging. Teddy pushed her away and Silver asked if there was someone else. Teddy glanced over at Ian and said that there was someone else. Later Ian was cleaning up after the party and Teddy helped him. They took some tiki torches into a cabana. As Ian was leaving Teddy touched his shoulder and Ian turned around. Teddy then kissed him! It was an actual kiss, not just lips touching like most gay male kisses are shown on tv. It was great and you could feel the chemistry between them. Props to 90210 for this.
Naomi decided that she needed to “rip off the band-aid” to get over the whole Mr. Cannon rape, arrest and fleeing town thing. So her, Ivy, Annie, Silver and Ade were hanging out on the beach watching the surfer boys. Actually Ivy was surfing and then a cute one who she knew came over and chatted with her about the surf contest. Then Naomi got up and started flirting with him. He didn’t respond until she started pretending that she knew how to surf. They made a date to surf after the surf contest. Ivy lent Naomi a wetsuit but Naomi wanted it to show more cleavage. At the beach Naomi tried to flirt with the surfer dude but he just wanted to surf. She got caught by a big wave and damaged her nose on the surfboard. The surf dude realized she didn’t know anything about surfing and was disgusted with her and left. Naomi nursed her sorrows at the beach club. Oscar showed up and seemed concerned about her. He said that he didn’t know what had happened with Mr. Cannon but it must’ve been terrible. Then he said one of the best things about LA was guacamole, so he ordered some to share with Naomi to cheer her up. This looked like the start of a beautiful friendship.
Earlier Laurel, Ivy’s mom, saw Oscar at the beach club. She told him that what he did to “destroy” their family was horrendous. He countered that Laurel destroyed his family by having an affair with his father thereby making his mother kill herself. Laurel said she was sorry and didn’t know what had happened but that Oscar shouldn’t take out his anger on Ivy because all Ivy had was Laurel. Laurel tried to talk to Ivy but Ivy ignored her and walked away. Oscar stopped by Ivy’s house to apologize but she didn’t care and shut the door in his face. Naomi was over there trying on wetsuits and told Ivy that she thought Oscar sounded sincere. At the surf contest Ivy won a trophy and Laurel watched her win from a distance. Later Ivy called her dad.
Dixon and Annie signed up their mom Debbie for online dating. She went out with a doctor who was in chronic pain. He was super weird and then Debbie happened to see Mr. Matthews (who she had hooked up with last time) at the same restaurant. She excused herself and her and Mr. Matthews got busy in the bathroom. She finally went back to her table and her date said he was wondering where she had been for such a long time.
Liam was busy driving Laura (the girl whose mom’s beach house that he now lives in) around to her appointments. Laura told Liam that she only started to sell drugs because she wanted to impress her ex-boyfriend who was a thug. But even that didn’t endear her to him and he dumped her. Liam started to feel bad for her. At the beach party Laura saw her ex and some of his thugy pals and wanted to leave. But Liam decided to help her and kissed her in front of the ex to make him jealous. Laura was happy. But later when Liam went to his car the ex and a thug pal came over and told Liam to stay away from Laura because Liam didn’t know her whole story. Then they beat Liam up and left him wallowing on the ground in the parking lot.
