Originally introduced in the first series, Erin, commonly called by her last name, is Kelly Taylor's and David Silver’s half-sister. She publishes her own blog called The Vicious Circle, which she uses to discuss intimate details (truth or fiction) about her peers at West Beverly High School. She becomes best friends with Annie and develops a romantic interest in Dixon, which quickly blossoms into a relationship. Before the start of the first season, we learn that Silver has shared the information of father's affair with her then-best-friend Naomi. Naomi makes this public knowledge, causing Silver's mother to turn to drink. In "By Accident" Dixon dumps her after taking advice from his mother Debbie, but later in "Help Me, Rhonda" they get back together after Silver says that she loves him. She loses her virginity to Dixon on Valentine's Day. Silver has always had a slightly manic personality, but in "Life's a Drag" she becomes more unbalanced. She visits Dixon at the Peach Pit where they end up having sex and Silver secretly taped it and then shows the tape to an entire theater, causing Dixon to break up with her. She ends up breaking into Ryan Matthews' house, claiming that he destroyed her relationship with Dixon, and threatening him with a bottle of wine unless he fixes everything. Silver then attempts to run away to Kansas, stating repeatedly that going there would help her solve her problems with Dixon. A stranger finds her while she is saying random things and acting erratically. The stranger then calls someone to come get her. Dixon and his mother and father find her on the train tracks. Dixon then remembers about his birth mother having bipolar disorder and says that Silver suffers from it also. Dixon calms Silver down and they take her to the hospital. Soon Silver finds it unbearable to go back to West Beverly High and results to going to St. Claire's School for a better semester. Silver wins the West Bev "prom queen" at that year's prom, but admits that she's not prom material. It is soon mentioned to Silver that Ethan has a crush on her. In the season finale Ethan and Silver share a kiss. In season 2, Teddy, Adrianna's ex boy-friend wants to go out with her and kisses her in the Winter Wonderland dance, but later sees Teddy with the another girl but not knowing it's his sister, Silver is kissed by Dixon. Teddy's father goes to see Silver and bribes her to break up with Teddy, even though she doesn't take the money, she starts thinking about what his father said so she breaks up with Teddy. In the season finale, she tells him she is sorry and that she loves him and they reconcile.

Naomi Clark: This is a really weird conversation. [Some surfers walk by and Silver notices them]
Erin Silver: Look at them. We were them 2 years ago. All happy and healthy and hopeful and not afraid of anything.
Annie Wilson: Well, the worst thing that could happen was you making out with the wrong guy at prom.
Naomi Clark: Okay, Alec kissed me.
Erin Silver: Oh, my god.
Annie Wilson: When?
Naomi Clark: On our friend date.
Adrianna Tate-Duncan: How was it? Alec's hot. [the others give Ade looks] I mean, not that it makes it okay.
Erin Silver: What exactly happened?
Naomi Clark: We were having a wonderful day out. I mean, he was his usual ass self at first, but then I took him yachting and we had lunch and he won me a silver unicorn and the moment was perfect and then all of a sudden he kissed me. I've been trying to pretend like it didn't happen.
Adrianna Tate-Duncan: Okay, well, you have to tell Max.
Naomi Clark: Tell him what? That I tricked his best friend into spending the day with me, forced him to like me and then, "Oops, we kissed." With my track record with Austin and now this, Max is never gonna trust me again.
Erin Silver: You know, Max will understand, but you have to tell him. If you don't tell Max and then he somehow finds out, then your relationship will be ruined.
|Season 4 / Episode 22: - 'Tis Pity|
Ivy Sullivan: [sarcastic] Gee, guys, one bite of a doughnut and I'll probably totally forget that I'm being held against my will in an insane asylum because a crazy priest-in-training mistakenly assumed that I was suicidal. Thank your boyfriend for me, Annie. I'm having a blast.
Annie Wilson: Caleb isn't my boyfriend. He was just worried about you. Plus, you have been behaving dangerously lately... what with going surfing in rough waters, running across streets without looking first as if you want a car to hit you...
Erin Silver: Look, Ivy, I've been in this situation when my mother died and I was feeling angry, alienated and alone; wanting to do rash and dangerous things without regard to my own life hoping that I would die and be put out of my misery. They would have to let you go in like 24 hours if they didn't think that you really were a danger to yourself. And the doctor we talked to said that all you do is sit with your arms crossed and won't talk.
Ivy Sullivan: Talking about your feelings might work for some people, but that's not going to make me feel any better.
Naomi Clark: They're not going to let you go unless you tell them what they want to hear. We get it. Raj died and that you feel that life doesn't matter to you anymore.
Ivy Sullivan: Nobody here gets it, guys! Not even all three of you! Nobody understands what I am going through! And talking about it is not going to help! Talking about what's going on inside my head doesn't work for me. It never has.
Annie Wilson: We just want you to come home. Can you just please talk about what you want us to do?
Ivy Sullivan: You know what I want you to do? You can start by leaving me alone! And stop bringing me things like doughnuts! Okay? Because I'm not gonna do it! I am not baring my soul to these jerks here or any of you and I don't care about the consequences! Okay? I don't care! I'd rather be locked up in here and play checkers with these crazies for the rest of my life then talk about what I am going through! But it's not all bad. Gloria, my roommate that you just met, she's is not a bad competition... that is on days when she doesn't think that she's the queen of England.
