If things are crazy and get out of hand on television, & # 39; reality & # 39; or not, what usually happens?
They become more and more out of control, as was the case in episode 3 of Fox & # 39; s unmistakably inventive and funny meta reboot / reunion vehicle, BH90210 on Wednesday night.
After the crazy stalker / morbid pop montage that came to the end of last week's episode, the third chapter of the series elaborated on the filthy details of some of the lives of the 90210 stars, and as it were came a closer to Shannen Doherty.
Actress and producer: the third chapter of BH90210 elaborated on the filthy details of some lives of the 90210 stars and, as it were, came one mountain closer to Shannen Doherty, thanks to Tori Spelling
In what seems to be a tradition, the cheese-filled episode opened in yet another dream series, with Jason-Priestley-as-Brandon-Walsh wiping the Peach Pit counter while Jennie Garth enters seductively and entices him to a & #. 39; midnight snack. & # 39;
Suddenly Kelly is pregnant and we realize that we are in Jason's dream caused by both the recent infidelity of his wife – and his.
Somehow this version of the show seems to get away with what it wants, and maybe that's because almost everything that is presented seems at least to resemble a shred of real, real life: although the reasons for the divorce Unknown, Jason Priestley was actually married to Ashlee Petersen, a makeup artist, very shortly before he married his current fourteen-year-old wife, Naomi Lowde.
When awakening from the bizarre dream, Jason confronts his wife Camille, played by Vanessa Lachey, about being pregnant, although he just discovered (in the previous episode) that he cannot have children (that part is not true, if the actor as two).

Cheesy: In what seems to be a tradition, the episode has opened with plenty of cheese in yet another dream series, in which Jennie Garth enters seductively into the Peach Pit and seduces Jason Priestley into a & # 39; midnight snack & # 39;
Her excuse for the infidelity that resulted in pregnancy? & # 39; Too many kamikazes. & # 39;
From there we go to another wedding on the rocks, that of Gabrielle Carteris, who recently told her husband Phil (David Cubitt) about a kiss from a woman … and how it had changed her.
Phil is as stupid as he can be, as husband and husband, and lets Gabby know that she doesn't have his support.
Then it's up to distressed 90210 marriage # 3, between Tori Spelling and her stand-in on screen for Dean McDermott, played by Ivan Sergei.
Sergei & # 39; s character Nate complains to Tori that the reboot takes up too much of her time, plus the fact that he is really not enthusiastic about the prospect of becoming intimate again with Brian Austin-Green.
Stress: Tori Spelling and her stand-in on screen for Dean McDermott, played by Ivan Sergei, address her duties during the reboot that gets in the way of family
They've finished it and he even refers to all & # 39; reality nonsense & # 39; where Tori has already brought herself and her family – to which Tori returns: & # 39; DO NOT GO THERE & # 39 ;.
We see again Emily Valentine aka Christine Elise, who plays a rep for Fox in perhaps one of the more crazy / inventive twists – which is not entirely wrong, since the actress has in fact worked as a story producer for reality TV in the past five years.
Elise brings out the most important thing in everyone's mind: Shannen must be on board.
When the cast comes together to discuss the reboot-in-a-reboot script, things quickly fly off the handle because it becomes clear that the lead writer is the one who had the kamikazes with Priestley's wife.
Ian & # 39; IZ & # 39; Ziering, who was late with the script meeting, makes the necessary headcuts when the writer has the nerve to tell Jason something like: & # 39; Sorry your wife wasn't happy at home! & # 39;
Meta: Christine Elise as a network representative is perhaps one of the more crazy / inventive turns of the show, since the actress has in fact worked as a story producer for reality TV in the last five years
It must be said: Elise brings out the most important thing in everyone's mind: Shannen must be on board
Shenanigans follow, and the group ends up …
And who plays the psychiatrist? None other than actress Carol Potter, who played Brandon and Brenda & # 39; s mother Cindy Walsh in the OG series.
It is worth noting that this is another skillful use of real & # 39; reality & # 39; is at restart, because a quick fact check with the Potter IMDb biography page reveals that 1. she has a master's degree in marriage and family counseling, 2. a degree in social relations from Harvard, and 3. has a counseling practice.
Even more drama is revealed during the counseling session, thanks to – spoiler alert – Tori Spelling is a bit too talkative.
Hi there! The cast of the cast is played by none other than actress and real counselor Carol Potter, who played Brandon and Brenda & # 39; s mother Cindy Walsh at Beverly Hills, 90210
Stranger than fiction: Potter holds a master's degree in marriage and family counseling and has a guidance practice
Soon we finally come back to the cliffhanger of the previous episode, i.e. the scary stalker who interviewed Brian Austin-Green to be his personal assistant.
The stalker Zach (Ty Wood) is quite impressed by pop star Shay, the replacement for Austin-Green & # 39; s IR-wife Megan Fox.
Shay, played by Power (and powerful) actress La La Anthony, picks up Zach's weirdness and tries to warn Brian about it later.
Meanwhile, Jennie Garth has accepted the network's offer to provide additional security in the light of stalker and maimed dolls, and boys are offering them because her bodyguard is uber-hunky Wyatt, played by Brendan Perry (who seems to have no relationship) with Luke) Perry & # 39; s).
They have quite a bit of chemistry, to say the least, during the remainder of the episode.
Gabrielle meets privately with the brash network of Christine Elise to talk about Andrea & # 39; s character arc, and it becomes clear that this is all for Gabby to explore her sexuality, perhaps for more reasons than one.
The couple even manages to touch acting methodology when Christine Gabrielle says he is an actor of the method and & # 39; the art lives & # 39; by what & # 39; research & # 39; in real life, and it is very appropriate because Carteris is after all the president of the Screen Actor & # 39; s Guild.
In a delightful turn that shows how not everything from the & # 39; 90 cuts it in 2019, the old-school macho manners of Ian Ziering / Steve Sanders don't automatically calculate in today's post # metoo times in which what he thinks that & # 39; just a compliment is not going very well with one of the young female writers of the show.
Back in the studio Jason can no longer cope with a meeting with writer / other man Jack Carlisle, and he tells Tori directly: he or me.
Nice set: Back in the studio, Jason can't take it anymore at a production meeting
It is not that simple for Tori, because he, besides Priestley as the main 90210 character Brandon Walsh, was also attached to the restart (another piece of real truth).
Later, after a pep talk from Jennie Garth, & # 39; Tori puts on her big girl's panties & # 39; and fires the writer, who apparently easily records the news (… or not?).
While misunderstandings arise and there is still NO news about Shannen, network representative Christine FINALLY asks again: & # 39; Where are we with Shannen? & # 39;
That brings us to the craziest moment of the episode: a montage by Tori who leaves the house and is on her way to PERU, looking for the actress who is responsible for Brenda Walsh.
After flying to South America and boarding a full country bus with alpaca & # 39; s and just being Tori, she walks into the jungle and climbs – literally – up a mountain to go to Shannen.
Really: the most crazy moment of the episode is a montage by Tori who leaves the house and heads for PERU
Rough and tumble: she is looking for the actress responsible for Brenda Walsh
Totally: Tori walks into the jungle and climbs – literally – up a mountain to go to Shannen
After a sincere appeal to Doherty, where Tori evokes endangered animals – I am not a baby tiger, a sea lion or a river dolphin from the Amazon … but I must be saved – she begs – she pulls the unthinkable away .
If everything seems lost, Tori returns to Fox … with Shannen in tow.
While the group is getting ready for a recreation of their iconic cast photo where they are all lying on a bed, an unaddressed element feels tangible, like an elephant in the room: the grim absence of Luke Perry.
Maybe in the next episode, apart from getting pay differences between the cast (another realistic lump), they can tackle the loss again of the actor who embodied Dylan McKay, because the tribute to him has felt somewhat overwhelming so far … .
Graceful end: when everything seems lost, Tori reappears at Fox …
… with Shannen in tow
A moving moment: while the group is getting ready for a recreation of their iconic cast photo where they are all lying on a bed, an unaddressed element feels tangible, like an elephant in the room – the grim absence of Luke Perry
