Things that Go Bang in the Night is the 8th episode of Season 5 on FOX teen soap Beverly Hills, 90210.


On Halloween night, Donna becomes scared when her two suitors, Ray and Griffin, finally cross paths during a costume party at the KEG house. After being shunned by the Walshes and the rest of the gang, Valerie considers moving back to Buffalo, but decides to stay after learning that her mother has suffered a nervous breakdown. Steve unfairly blames Dylan for having a tryst with Valerie, and ends his business agreement with the Peach Pit After Dark.

Valerie also fails to bewitch Dylan who's sinking deeper into depravity with hard drugs, while Brandon reacts coldly towards Valerie after finding out that she skipped out on Steve's frat party to be with Dylan after she promised everyone to stay away from him. Meanwhile, Andrea's not pleased to see the cross necklace her baby daughter Hannah receives at a Day of the Dead celebration. Also, Clare talks David into a UFO hunt for the night in the desert near Barstow, CA.
