In response, Dixon informed Ethan's girlfriend Naomi , via text messaging, that Ethan was cheating on her. When faced with a possible ban from the team, Dixon told Annie that lacrosse was special to him because it had helped create a bond between he and Harry. Annie later confronted Ethan regarding his dishonesty, which prompted him to exonerate Dixon and set aside any differences they had. When rival players from Palisades Hall High School vandalized West Beverly, Harry forbid the team from retaliating. In time, however, Dixon and certain others were assisted by fellow student Navid, who helped them set a group of pigs loose on the rival school building. Harry then planned to suspend lacrosse unless the culprits revealed and Navid soon revealed their own involvement. Though they received punishment, Dixon and Ethan were ultimately allowed to remain on the team. At home, Dixon later bonded with Harry as they compared their high school experiences; he also learned that his sister Annie had been on a semi-adventure to San Francisco. In addition to meeting Ethan and Navid, Dixon was introduced to Annie's new friend Silver in the first episode. Later, after Silver had spent a night out with the Wilson's and others, Dixon found her sleeping in a car outside the family home.

When Harry and Tracy offered to give Sean the money , Debbie and Annie confronted Harry and requested a paternity test. Sean agreed, but suddenly left town the next morning without telling anyone. It was also revealed that he'd received a degree of money from the Clark family. This led the Wilson's, Naomi, and a reluctant Tracy to conclude that Sean was not who he claimed to be, but someone who'd intended to scam them. Afterwards, the close-knit Wilson's provided each other comfort and began moving on. Dixon became confused by Silver's reaction to Annie and Ethan's relationship, finding it odd that she was turned off by their repeated displays of affection.

Appearance and StyleEdit
Dixon is born of African-American heritage. He dons a shaved head and has brown eyes. Dixon has somewhat of a comedic nature, which probably was how he made immediate friends with Navid Shirazi in the beginning. However, in the early episodes of Season 1, it was revealed that he had a bit of an anger problem, which he is trying to control and eventually succeeds. In the series, Dixon was first seen wearing a green-and-white jersey along with blue jeans, and along with Annie, had somewhat a weak sense of style compared to the glamorous Beverly Hills. During the course of the season, however, later in the show, he was seen wearing men's designer clothing.
