"Oh my (goodness), there's Ethan," she says.
She checks out her reflection in a nearby car window, and from the way she fusses with her hair, it's clear she wants to impress him. Smiling broadly, she begins walking toward the teenager's car. Ethan, however, is in no position to say hello. His attention is focused on another teenage girl, who is performing a sex act on him inside the SUV.
The scene is from an episode of the redux "90210," airing Monday nights during the first hour of prime time on the CW network.
Sex-scenes, even sleeping in the same bed, were once verboten on any hour of network television, but they are now everywhere, even during prime time, when many children are watching.
