You were the bad boy we all wanted but knew we shouldn’t have. We knew that Brandon was the safe but boring choice. You, you were the adorably hot bad choice. Brandons make good husbands, Dylans will leave you with broken hearts. But we still fell for you, knowing all of this.
We were Brenda that first moment you looked at her, that one time in the hallway at school. We knew and wanted that look from the boy we were crushing on and you were perfection. We all wanted to be Brenda Walsh with our own Dylan. We cheered on your relationship through the good and the bad. When Brenda and Dylan broke up, our hearts broke. We knew in our heart of hearts that you still loved her, and suddenly Wednesday nights turned into #teambrenda vs #teamkelly.
We were #teambrenda all the way. Eventually we realised Kelly was the one for you and switched over to #teamkelly, through a small part of us is rooting for Dylan/Brenda, we knew Dylan/Kelly was meant to be. But like all bad boys you left her and left us with a broken heart once again.
Last week when it was announced that 90210 was returning, all of our hearts skipped a joyous beat. Dylan McKay, though you hadn’t signed on yet, we hoped he would be back and with Kelly. Maybe just maybe we would get the Kelly/Dylan reunion we all longed for. But it was never to be, once again we are left heart broken. This time it’s forever.
RIP Dylan Mckay. You were our first crush, our first TV love, you taught us about bad boys and we will love you forever. Our 90210 world will never be the same.
