Arissa tells someone that Alex is coming out this weekend. Trishelle asks how long he's staying, and Arissa says he can only stay for a day or two. In an interview, Arissa says she's nervous because she thinks Alex might be the perfect guy. Arissa tells Trishelle that she didn't think Alex would visit, but he said that he would. In an interview, Trishelle says that Arissa thinks that Alex will sweep her off her feet and be a reason for her not to see Dario anymore.
Arissa gets dressed up for Alex's arrival. In an interview, Arissa says that this visit will be the test to see what's going to happen between them. Arissa heads downstairs to wait for Alex outside. She gets down there at 9:03 PM. And waits. And waits. And waits some more. At 9:45 PM, she's still waiting. In an interview, Arissa says that Alex told her he was coming, but after forty-five minutes, she decided to go upstairs and check her messages. She does, and laughs as she listens to a message from Alex. He says that he got cold feet and couldn't get on the plane, and that he really likes her and didn't want to get his hopes up for nothing. Yeah, I would immediately think that meant that he got a better offer at home so he blew her off. Trishelle listens to the message and asks Arissa what she's thinking. Arissa considers it and says she doesn't know. In an interview, Trishelle says that Arissa is trying to act like she's not upset, but that she has to be. Trishelle thinks that Alex might just really like Arissa and not know what to do. Arissa doesn't buy it.
Arissa calls Dario. In an interview, Arissa says that people make mistakes, and you have to learn to accept them. Arissa tells Dario about Alex and how he didn't show up, and how she actually left him a message thanking him for not coming out. Arissa says she just thought about Dario the whole time, and she wonders if she should start fresh with him.
