Trivia Edit

  • Brandon meets a man the job fair who's mother is friends with Brandon's grandmother
  • Valerie's friend from Buffalo shows up out of the blue. Tom says he didn't visit before because Val broke up with him
  • Tom works in construction but finds it boring and sparse
  • Valerie tells Tom she's the only one who knows the truth about what happened with her father
  • Tracy's a junior
  • CU's holding its 25th annual job fair
    • Steve takes an interview with a sports company and experiences sexual harassment. What's worse is, Clare doesn't believe him
  • Mark turns out to be a bad loser and harasses Kelly, blaming her for his loss and she leaves him (obviously)
  • Val wants Tom to manage the Peach Pit After Dark. David's not a fan
  • Dalton James was fired abruptly from the show (after 5 episodes of the season had been shot) because Jennie Garth didn't like him, under orders from Aaron Spelling. Spelling gave the writers/producers the reasoning that James was anti-semetic, although nobody experienced James being so and the showrunner mentions in a 2010 interview how they didn't believe Spelling's claim and that Spelling was notorious for firing people unwarrantedly (eg. Jamie Walters):
"With [Spelling], the ends justified the means and screw the actor’s or anyone else’s reputation. He played at the game hard. We had no evidence that Dalton James was anti-Semetic. Most likely wasn’t"[3]
