Lauren and Audrina meet at a fancy restaurant. Audrina knows it's a mess, and she apologizes for jumping to conclusions. Lauren reiterates, "Some crazy person told you a crazy story." Audrina fairly sincerely apologizes for not trusting Lauren and causing damage to their friendship. Lauren says that she realizes now that Audrina doesn't trust her, but she gets why she doesn't trust JB. Lauren lays it all out and says that Audrina always goes back to JB and gives him the benefit of the doubt even when he has cheated on her, so it's way worse that she cut Lauren off so completely based on one ridiculous rumor. Audrina then says that she doesn't trust anyone. Didn't Lauren just say that Audrina trusts too easily? The word trust has lost all meaning. Audrina starts crying and says that her life has been unhappy since she's been with JB and she feels like she's lost herself. Lauren wants her to know that people do care about her. Audrina has retreated inside and she knows it's not healthy. Lauren promises that she never wants Audrina to be sad. Man, if I had a friendship this dramatic, I would cut that person off. It looks fucking exhausting. And expensive! With all the dinners out in restaurants to endlessly discuss everything! Lauren and Audrina leave the restaurant and hug over their renewed friendship (I guess) and then there's like thirty seconds of Audrina just standing outside the restaurant "deep" in "thought."
