The Hills Episode Recap: "Old Habits Die Hard" Season 5, Episode 14

After being stood up by Justin Bobby, Kristin decides to take a little break from L.A. So where does she go? Home to Laguna Beach, of course. Kristin arrives and shares some wine with her dad, who asks if she's seen Steven or Lauren lately. Um, have you not seen the last four seasons of The Hills, mister? Daddy Cav also hilariously asks if Brody (Kristin's ex) is still in love with himself. Kristin then tells her dad and stepmom about the new guy she's dating —Justin Bobby— and that she took a ride on his motorcycle. I think Dennis knows what she really means here. He's cool but a flake, she says, and not someone you'd necessarily take home to pops. Good thing it's "nothing serious."

Meanwhile, it's time for a Bolthouse event (where Spencer proceeds to wear his ridiculous cowboy hat). Heidi's sister Holly is wasted and makes a fool of herself in front of her family and Brent.

The next day, Stephanie tells Heidi she needs to have a bit of an intervention with her sister, as there's something going on with her if she needs to get blackout drunk all the time. So Heidi and Spencer meet Holly for lunch, where Heidi acts concerned and Spencer compares himself to his sister-in-law. That's one way to get someone to change. Holly decides it's probably time for her and alcohol to break up.

When Kristin returns from Laguna, Justin is in her home cooking dinner. He apologizes for bailing on her and she tells him, "You get one meal to say you're sorry." We also learn that it's the first meal Justin Bobby has ever cooked for someone, and it's the first mean Kristin's ever had cooked for her. They then have a little heart-to-heart —watch the convo in the scene below.

Audrina is still hanging out with Justin's BFF Derek, who knows something is up when he asks if she's really over him. "It's a long time to spend with somebody and just cut it off," Derek says. But then everything changes at the end of the episode,when Audrina meets up with Justin Bobby to "break the ice." He claims he'd never go out with someone closer to Audrina than him and is pretty upset with her for doing that with Derek. He also tells her, "A big part of me will always have feelings for you....I don't know what to do, feel or say....I would never be able to say anything's better than Audrina Patridge in my life." Is this dude for real? Audrina then tells him she won't talk to Derek anymore, and it looks like they're back where they started.
