Brooke shows up to the house to talk to the sisters. MamaStacey tells us again how everyone feels like depledging at one point, but if she hates the sisters and the sorority, she's not going to try to convince her to stay. Brooke says, "I want to do this again," but she's afraid no one is going to believe that she wants to come back. MamaStacey tells Brooke she has to explain it to her pledge sisters. But as far as the real sisters, everyone wants her to stay. "Really?" says Brooke, all happy for no reason. Boo. Then Laura asks if they're getting to keep her. "Yeah," says Brooke. The sisters squeal and hug her. "Yay!" says Brooke. Oh, sweet Jesus. I guess the brainwashing was a bit more severe than I'd thought. The sisters think the pledges are going to be happy about this. Someone says the pledges are going to be so happy that they're going to "tackle" her. Yeah, but not in happiness.
Cut to: pledge house. Meeting around the table. Maggie's Gigantic Boobies Of Hatred are babbling about how they're not going to "let" Brooke back in the sorority. Maggie says that Julia doesn't want her here, and Mackenzie -- she has all these thoughts in her head she hasn't said to Brooke yet that she's going to. Yikes. Meanwhile, Brooke walks down the street. She tries to open the door, but the chain lock is on. Brittany lets her in. "Brooke!" she says, all fakey. Brooke goes on that she's back for good and she missed everyone. Brittany is too drunk to remember that she even left. At the table, everyone else looks nervous. Mackenzie camera-talks about how she feels stepped on now. Brooke says that she found it hard to be in the house and easy to bail. Maggie, fingering some salt and pepper shakers, says that's not what she told them three days ago. She camera-blehs about how she doesn't think Brooke is here for the right reasons. Shut up.
Maggie goes on to list all the stuff Brooke said she didn't want to do. She tells us that if you're not into something, you don't just change overnight. Julia asks if her heart's into it. Brooke does her great ignoring thing when Karissa arrives and she hugs her and says, "Hi! I'm back." Maggie's mouth hangs open. Julia repeats her question. "And you get a whole weekend off," brats Maggie, no one listening to her. Brooke just responds to something Karissa says about how they're already being harsh and she just got back. Karissa wants to discuss this later. Brooke camera-talks about how the sisters want her back, and Maggie and Mackenzie don't, but they have no say at all. "I'm back here. I went through a lot to get back here," says Brooke, laying it down with a directness that Maggie's passive-aggressive victim ass can't even begin to understand. Maggie, covering her ass mouth, says it's going to be harder for her to accept that. Brooke laughs, looking to Karissa, and then says, "That's fine." Hee. Loving her. Maggie tries to rope her friends into her opinion too, so Mackenzie speaks up that Brooke is going to have to rebuild trust over time. "Well, of course," says Brooke. She and Karissa do some crazy eye-rolls and flirty smiles as Brooke tells us that the crap pledges think they can question her, but she doesn't have to answer to them. "They don't need to know. They have nothing to do with me being here." Brooke tells them that she has as much a reason to be here as anyone and, well, she's back.
