Lots of reunions, dissolutions, and second chances. Let's start with Annie, shall we? All the quicker to be finished with her. So homegirl is still pretty bent out of shape about having to sacrifice her time and oh-so-pleasant company to Dark Lord Jasper. She proves to still have a smidgen of conscience when things turn rape-y and he basically tells her that he'll fink on her to the LAPD if she doesn't recapture their "magic" in bed. She essentially tells him she'd rather go to prison than have sex with him again, though does leave a little wiggle room by fudging there's a one-in-a-million chance she'll get back together with him if he keeps her secret. He shows up intermittently to proffer pictorial evidence of her crime and generally act like a creep. So she drafts a confession letter to free herself of his thrall, then he promises in the eleventh hour to wait for her if she will return to him like a hobo-tramplin' butterfly. Annie returns to gabbing about dresses with her girlfriends that night, as you do when you've just gotten off the hook for murdering someone, though she doesn't realize she left an archived document of her confession on her laptop.
Speaking of confessions, Dixon finally comes clean to both Silver and Teddy about thwarting their romance during Winter Wonderland. Only after realizing he has no shot in Hell with Silver. Wait, not then? Oh yeah, only after being caught red-handed by Silver when Teddy's sister finally comes over to introduce herself. Even then, Silver balks at giving Teddy another chance, since he returned to pimpin' so soon after things didn't work out between them. Ultimately, she decides to go with her heart and give it a go with Teddy.
Naomi and Liam, another couple on rocky ground last week, finally figure out what's been missing. You might be surprised to believe it's Naomi. Apparently she's been trying so hard to be a good girlfriend to Liam that she stopped being the feisty bitch he fell in love with in the first place. And all it takes is a little meddling from Ivy (not intended to benefit Naomi, it's worth noting), a rough-and-tumble walk in the woods, and an actual tumble in the sand with Ivy, plus some hair-pulling, to bring old Naomi back.
In remainders, Matthews and AAdrianna both find solace in the warms of women -- Matthews in a '70s rock groupie-turned-cougar, who just happens to be Ivy's mom; AAdrianna in sappy-movie loving RuWill, who has effectively ended a real lesbian relationship to pull her U-Haul up to not-even-aware-she's-bicurious AAdrianna. Also, shoehorned into the episode, Dixon rues being rejected by his mother only to have her show up on the Wilsons' doorstep and interrupt their Jeopardy-inspired family bonding moment. And all I can say is, bitch, don't mess with Harry's trivia night. He will cut you.
Previously: The Great Teddy Mindfuck of '09 became The Great Silver Mindfuck of '10. Naomi and Liam lost their emotional connection (which is kind of a laughable concept to begin with). Annie wished she knew how to quit Jasper. And Jasper pulled a switcheroo on wannabe-narc Navid, getting Navid busted for drug possession.
Naomi has taken Silver and AAdrianna shopping to soothe their stress about Navid's incarceration, but AAdrianna is still freaking out because she knows Navid was framed. They run into Annie at a sidewalk café and invite her along to help Naomi find the perfect LGD (Little Gold Dress). Just as Annie says she wishes she could come, Jasper emerges from inside the restaurant, all bug-eyed and spindly. Of course, that's his normal look, but isn't it just right considering he's a tweaked-out drug dealer? The girls take their clue that Annie won't be joining and make themselves scarce. Jasper acts all mopey that Annie's not his little Stepford Ho. She snaps that she's here, what else does he want? He says he wants things to go back to the way they were and invites her back to his house to hang out. She gives him the cold shoulder, and he slams his fist down on the table as he whines about her attitude. By "attitude" do you mean resistance to blackmail-induced sex? You do? Okay, just as long as we're on the same page. He reminds her what's at stake. Her lip crumples, and she reluctantly agrees to go with him.
West Bev. Dixon approaches Silver, Teddy fast on his heels. She completely ignores Teddy, who seems to have disappeared and chirps that she wants to get back together. They make out. And in case you couldn't tell, this is a dream. He heads downstairs for breakfast like he owns the world. The family makes fun of his aggressive cologne, but he can't be bothered. He tells them he's finally worked something out. Debbie thinks it's about his birth mother, but Dixon says she hasn't gotten back in touch. He lets it slide off his shoulder, saying she'll be in touch when she wants to.
Now at West Bev for real this time, he approaches Silver just as he did in the dream. She says exactly what she did in the dream... until the getting back together part. Instead, she says she wants them to be friends and assures him it has nothing to do with Teddy. She bluntly tells him she doesn't have feelings for him anymore, but she does like having him back in her life. He takes it begrudgingly, and they go their separate ways.
