Last time we left
The Hills, many things were left hanging in the balance. Would Lauren return from Paris with Brody waiting for her? Would Spencer and Heidi make it through another rough patch? Would Lauren and Heidi ever make up? Welcome to the start of a new season where hopefully all those questions will eventually be answered.
Lauren and Whitney arrive in Paris with their driver for the week waiting. He hands them their itinerary and the work begins. They must pick up shoes for the debutantes and then pick up their ball gowns. Too excited to wait, they go get their gorgeous dresses and by the time they get to the next stop, the store is closed. Already we can see this trip to Paris is not going to be a smooth one.
Back in the US Heidi has returned home to Colorado, trying to figure out if her relationship with Spencer is worth repairing. In LA, Spencer is a mess and his sister makes him realize he has no choice but to go after her. He arrives in Crested Butte to be greeted by her father. I loved his reaction to Spencer showing up. "What the heck(silence)are you doing here?" It was a bit of an awkward conversation that ended with Spencer waiting inside for Heidi's return.
In Paris, Lauren and Whitney are put to work. Lauren makes her second mistake and answers her cell phone. Helloo, this is your chance to prove yourself, don't answer your phone in front of your boss. Audrina is on the other end with not so great news. Brody has a girlfriend. Lauren is in shock but Whitney quickly suggests that they too can find boyfriends in 2 days. So they go and meet up with a band that Lauren has met before. Not before long, she and Matthias lock eyes and we know Lauren has a new crush. The next evening the boys invite Lauren and Whitney out but Lauren has nothing to wear. She ponders wearing her ball gown and then convinces herself she can hem it without making a hole. Third night, third mistake.
Dinner in Colorado looks awful. Heidi makes a toast to her parents for loving and supporting her, looks at Spencer, and says, "And that's about it." Okay I know things didn't end well between the two, but when did Heidi get so nasty? She wants nothing to do with Spencer and for the first time, EVER, I sort of feel bad for the guy. Heidi basically tells him to leave.
The girls are out in Paris and Lauren is torn between two guys. It's 2 am and time to leave. As Lauren and Whitney are walking outside, Matthias runs up to Lauren and says, "You are leaving me without kissing bye-bye?" Maybe that was supposed to be romantic but it just made me laugh. She gives him the double kiss and goes on her way. The next morning she takes out the seam she put in the dress when she realizes there is a huge, cannot be missed, stain on her dress. Did she honestly think wearing it on the town, it would come back home perfectly? She freaks out and has Whitney call up the manager of Alberta Ferretti. It doesn't seem promising but when she hangs up Whitney tells Lauren if they can get there in 15 minutes he'll have a dress for her. What would a Lauren/Teen Vogue event be without a crisis barely averted? She grabs the dress and they make their way to the Crillon Ball. When it's all over, Kimball sends Lauren on an errand and takes the opportunity to question Whitney's intention at the magazine. She tells him that she sees herself dealing with fashion more directly rather than being behind the scenes and he certainly agrees. This is our first hint that Whitney's journey at Teen Vogue may be coming to an end soon. Meanwhile, Lauren gets a call from Matthias who wants to take her around Paris for her last night. He takes her on his Vespa and they ride off into the sunset in the City of Lights. They return the next morning and she tells him to call her when he's in LA. Something tells me this isn't the last that we'll see of Matthias.
It's back to reality for Lauren and Whitney who return from Paris. It's also back to LA for Spencer who must leave Heidi to figure things out. This is one fight that doesn't seem like it can be mended.
So was the premiere all you hoped it to be? And how good does this upcoming season look? Stephen and Lauren re-igniting flames, Heidi and Audrina repairing their friendship and Lauren and she-Spencer in the same class. Cannot wait!!
