The Big Hurt is the 28th episode of Season 6 of Beverly Hills, 90210.


Steve is impressed by Clare's childhood chum, an actual prince; Donna and David's video is a hit with everyone but Joe; Colin receives his sentence after his attorney makes a deal with the DA; Tara tries to end Kelly's "pain".


David and Donna’s video for Powerhouse 5000 is finished and Joe is not pleased how extremely sexy and revealing Donna’s scenes turned out. He tries to convince Donna to edit out the racy content and in turn, she convinces David to make the cuts. The music management company likes the video but wants more of Donna’s character so David agrees to re-edit with all of Donna’s outtakes. He receives an offer to direct three more videos. Joe apologizes to Donna and admits that he reacted out of jealousy because she was spending so much time with David. Valerie and Colin are confident that the lawyer has made a good deal with the district attorney for a light sentence. When a new judge appears he surprises everyone and sentences Colin to two years in prison for endangering lives with his hazardous driving and drug possession. Prince Carl, a childhood and family of Clare's, comes to visit and proves to both Steve and Clare that he is no longer just a spoiled brat.

To try and sever any ties Kelly has to anyone except her, Tara kills Kelly’s fish and makes a move on Brandon in the darkroom. Kelly finally orders her to move out. While Kelly packs Tara’s things she finds letters proving that Tara has lied and her parents do love their daughter and want to help. Furious that Kelly has gone through her things, Tara holds Kelly at gunpoint and forces her to drive them up the coast. When Kelly tries to escape Tara knocks her out with the butt of the gun. She ties up Kelly, hooks a hose from the exhaust pipe into the car, and plans to kill Kelly and herself by carbon monoxide poisoning. Kelly comes to and tricks Tara into untying her, gets the gun away and breaks out of the car. Kelly and Tara undergo carbon monoxide detox at the hospital and Tara’s mother thanks Kelly for saving her daughter’s life and reuniting them.
