All of a sudden the girls are living in their new house -- Lauren and Lo in the main house, with Audrina in the guest house. And, of course, they have to throw a housewarming party. Over breakfast Lauren tells Lo that Stephen (yes, Laguna Beach Stephen) is in town and coming to the bash. Lo gets all excited that Lauren and Stephen are going to rekindle their flame -- and it looks like Lauren wants that, too.
Stephanie tells Spencer that she wants to go to Lauren's party and accuses Spence of holding a grudge. They bicker and he leaves. When Steph breaks the news to Heidi that she's headed over to Lauren's, Heidi cops a major attitude. Heidi questions her loyalty and guilts her into staying at her house to watch a movie. Lame!
As the girls get ready for the party, Lauren and Lo sort of dig at Audrina for inviting Justin Bobby. Does anyone else feel bad for Audrina? It's like she's their punching bag! Lo asks Lauren if Stephen is coming just as a friend or something more -- LC tells her not to go "'all ninth grade" on her. The party begins and some familiar faces show up -- Jarret the trainer, Whitney, Brody and Brody's girlfriend Cora, who Lauren manages to eek out a smile for.
Stephen arrives, followed by a short-haired Justin Bobby! He cut all that grossness off! Unfortunately it didn't do anything for his personality. JB and Audrina talk and cuddle in her back house, while Stephen and Lauren make plans to have dinner another night. Um, he's just as cute as ever.
When Steph and Lauren meet up at school, she apologizes for not showing for Lauren's party. Lauren tells her about Stephen and their upcoming date. Lauren gets all decked out for her big night out and the friends talk over dinner about life and love. There's some weird conversation about how everyone expects something to happen between them but how they are better off as friends.
There is just something about Steven that gives a girl butterflies in her stomach -- well, this girl anyway...
Next week -- Heidi goes to Vegas...
