New on ‘90210’: earthquakes, love triangles, half-brothers, and more
HollywoodNews.com: We already know that Teddy’s going gay with new cast member Kyle Riabko, but the cast members of “90210” have been giving us even more tidbits about the show’s upcoming third season lately, and they’re juicy.
According to Matt Lanter, who plays Liam, a romance with Annie is definitely in the cards–the two share a kiss in one of the earliest new episodes. “There’s always been some chemistry between Annie and Liam,” says Lanter. “In the first season finale, he was really flirting with her. Picking on her, yes, but in a flirting way. She was this good girl, but also had this façade on—Liam was determined to break that down. He was always curious about the real Annie. And I think that’s where it started. Now they’ve bonded over really personal things, so there’s an even deeper emotional connection.”
But what about poor Naomi, who’s already forced to deal with the aftermath of last season’s rape in the upcoming episodes? Lanter explains, “Liam’s relationship with Naomi started out as a physical one and it stayed that way. From what we saw, they never really formed an emotional attachment. But with Liam and Annie, we’ve seen it grow. It grew out of friendship.”
But things may not be heating up between the two ‘friends’ for long once Liam’s half-brother Charlie arrives. Lanter reveals that Charlie’s appearance will be the basis for the show’s latest love triangle, saying, “Charlie and Liam are estranged. His half-brother hasn’t been in his life so they don’t have a good relationship. Throw a girl into the mix and it’s that much worse.”
Charlie is apparently an older, educated theater nerd. “Annie’s into that,” says Lanter. “They have that connection. They can read plays and Shakespeare together, and that’s something Liam doesn’t have—something more worldly, cultured, maybe.”
But love lives aren’t all that’s being shaken up in ‘90210’: a big earthquake hits Beverly Hills in the very first episode of Season 3, airing Monday, September 13, and an episode summary refers to it as causing “havoc and death.” How appropriately dramatic.
