She is last shown being comforted by Jen while police sirens are heard due to Annie reporting the underage drinking.
Several of the series' story lines in Season 2 are shown to have various ties to Naomi, including the deepening of Jen Clark's duplicity, the shaken state of Annie Wilson, and the development of a sensitive side in the character of Liam Court.
However, her birthday party is disrupted by the news that Ethan has been unfaithful to her.
Naomi Clark was initially developed by the series' original show-runner, Rob Thomas, who was succeeded by Gabe Sachs and Jeff Judah prior to the premiere.
Early press releases described the character as a privileged, attractive, and popular teenager, the first series of the franchise which launched 90210.
At Naomi's after-prom party, Jen (Sara Foster), her sister, seduces Liam to get back at Naomi for defying her and holding the event at their house.
Naomi catches the aftermath (sans Jen) and finds Annie's wrap with Liam, causing her to publicly accuse Annie of sleeping with him.
As production of the spin-off began, the part would become more defined, with actress Anna Lynne Mc Cord, who received the role, labeling Naomi an intelligent girl who possessed both manipulative and sensitive sides.
She further described the character as "kind of a chameleon", stating that "she'll be someone with the principal and then someone else with her mother and then someone else with her friend." With regard to playing such roles, Mc Cord stated, "I tend to reach out to people like Clark because I can see they are putting on a facade and are not as bad as they seem.while fidelity is revealed to be of importance to her as well.When her personal life is explored, she is shown to value her longtime boyfriend Ethan Ward (Dustin Milligan).Conversely, Naomi has also been a recipient of criticism, particularly during the second season.For her work in the role, Mc Cord was nominated for a Teen Choice Award in 2009, and won a Breakthrough of the Year Award in 2010.Self-esteem is shown to be one of Naomi's biggest virtues and vices early on.
