Pledging My Love is the 5th episode of Season 7 on FOX drama soap Beverly Hills, 90210.


OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALIST KERRI STRUG GUEST STARS IN A CAMEO ROLE — Even though Kenny buys Valerie a place where they can be together, Valerie becomes more demanding of his time. Donna becomes the rush chairwoman for the Alpha House while Steve and his KEG brothers pull a stunt that not only upsets Clare but also puts Brandon in an awkward position with the television station. Meanwhile, Kelly remains at Jimmy's bedside hoping that she will not have to say goodbye to her new friend so soon.

Plot Edit

Steve's so-called "harmless prank" of streaking with his fraternity pledges for Spirit Week lands Brandon in trouble. He refuses to give a video tape of the event to Chancellor Arnold, knowing it will incriminate Steve, while Tracy decides on a crafty plan to get Brandon off the hook. Meanwhile, Donna becomes chairperson of the rush committee for ALPHA sorority and lobbies to get a female jock, named Dani, accepted. Kelly takes a sickly Jimmy on a religious journey to explore his Jewish roots before he dies. David returns to school at California University, but finds all the classes he wants full, and he even has a run-in with Olympic champion gymnast Kerri Strug. Also, Kenny shows Valerie his new apartment for her to live in, but Valerie becomes angry and upset when he breaks a dinner date with her in order to go out with his wife and young son whom he continues to hide his tryst from them.
