Withdrawal is the 13th episode of Season 9 on FOX drama soap Beverly Hills, 90210.


WILL DYLAN SURVIVE A DRUG-INDUCED COMA — Dylan's life hangs in the balance as he battles to overcome his drug addiction and slips into a coma. Kelly's feud with Gina intensifies when Kelly discovers the extent of Gina's involvement with Dylan. Meanwhile, Steve lands in the doghouse after he loses track of Janet's pure-bred dog which is in heat.

Recap Edit

Donna is not seriously injured, and forgives Dylan for the accident. Dylan's friends encourage him to check into rehab. Kelly acts very pushy and suggests that Gina and Matt are responsible for Dylan's problems. Dylan sneaks out the bathroom window and attempts to go through withdrawal on his own. Kelly finds him lying on her doorstep and takes him to the hospital. Matt cuts a deal with the district attorney to keep Dylan out of jail, but isn't sure that he deserves another chance. Dylan goes into cardiac arrest and has to be revived through a defibrillator. Kelly realizes that she must back off and learn to respect Gina's relationship with Dylan. Matt receives a surprising call from a woman in New York. Donna designs a gown for a famous singer to wear to a nationally televised awards show. She fears that she is ruined when the woman looks like a wreck (with uncombed hair and garish accessories). However, the teenagers who emulate the singer soon flock to Donna's store. Steve gets into hot water with Janet after he accidentally lets her purebred dog mate with a mutt.
