    Lindsey McKeon is a fantastic actress, its sad to see her wasted on 90210.

    I”m confused. Schmidt and CeCe were together at the end of the season? Why are we talking about them being broken up?

  3. Ryan says:

    Jay Hernandez is “a man involved with Scott Speedman’s character’s estranged wife.” I hope that doesn’t mean some kind of affair because I don’t want to see that storyline on a show about a renegade nuclear sub.
