Loose ends hang between Kelly and Brandon as the ninth season opens in the aftermath of what was supposed to be their wedding day. The pair made a mutual decision to call it off---but on the morning after, it's no longer mutual, and there's a palpable tension between them. Meanwhile, David urges Valerie to be a kinder, gentler Val as she struggles to celebrate the negative result of her HIV test; Donna meddles in Noah's family affairs; and Steve is blind to the shady side of a new acquaintance, whom he sees as girlfriend material. But she has eyes for someone else.
