R252 yes that storyline made no sense, season 6 starts out great with the Dylan falls in love and marries the daughter of the man, Anthony Marchette, who "killed" his father , only to have a hit put out on him but instead accidentally killing the daughter and his new bride, the Kelly romances the perennially shirtless Colin, the artist from NYC, who has a cocaine problem and is already cheating on Kelly with a rich older married woman and art gallery owner, Claudia Van Eyk played by Mary Crosby of Dallas fame, who has him "kept" and Colin also has a past in New York with Valerie,. The cute Steve, the frat boy and Claire, the snarky sarcastic supporting chararacter romance after hating each other previously and realizing that they were the other person that they were "talking" to for months online, I think Steve's online name was "Carebear" and the look on Claire's face was hilarious when she found out Steve was "Carebear" and she blurts out, "Oh no Steve Sanders is Carebear!"
The Donna/Ray drama with the revelation finally coming out that Valerie was blackmailing Ray and sleeping with him during season 5 and when he cut off the sex, Valerie fired his band from her club and sent him to Washington for gigs and causing Donna to be stalked and attacked and bound and gagged by the campus rapist, Garrett Slain, until David barged in and saved her from him, thereby also causing Claire to realize that David still loved Donna and to break up with him towards the end of season 5.
The Brandon meets the feminist Susan Keats, who happens to be his new boss at the college paper romance, complete with their constant competing for each other over stories and the arrival of Susan's ex , the smarmy Johnathan Keats, who naturally is still in love with Susan and wants her back and they share a "secret", naturally, the secret is that while in high school, Susan got pregnant by Johnathan and had an abortion, I think Brandon punched Johnathan out, also things came to halt when Brandon and Susan were trapped in an avalanche while going on a "ski vacation" together and they thought they were gonna die and they were believed to be dead and Susan DEMANDED to know if Brandon still loved Kelly, who of course he did
The David/Valerie romance , they bonded during an Earthquake early in season 6 and bonded further after David's crazy mom, just out of the mental institution, had another "mental break" and almost burned the house down

Kelly's new friend in rehab, Tara Marks, leaves and moves in with her after rehab, and becomes obsessed with Kelly and tries to take over her life by getting her exact hair cut, by seducing Brandon, by killing her fish, by keying Valerie's car and threatening to kill Valerie, eventually Tara kidnaps Kelly at gunpoint and makes them drive to the beach where she tries to do a murder/suicide thing by Carbon Monoxide poisoning
