Kyle and Keri stand on the street. Keri asks if they ever get tornadoes in Chicago. Kyle says that they do, and hopes that one is about to happen, because of the dark clouds gathering. It's like Weather Week on B/M, what with the hurricane on the Challenge and all. Keri says that tornadoes are her biggest fear. In an interview, scruffy Kyle explains that the whole tornado discussion was the first time he saw Keri let herself be vulnerable, and it was very attractive to see that in her. Does it worry anyone else that Kyle likes his women to admit fear and act vulnerable? Just asking. And then after Keri has admitted her fear of tornadoes, Kyle continues to torture her by explaining how a funnel cloud might touch down right in the middle of the street. Yeah, I'm sure she will feel really comfortable admitting her fears to you in the future, jerk.
Kyle and Keri sit in a mall. Kyle asks who Keri's least favorite roommate is. Keri says that she thought that she would have the most conflict with Tonya, but she doesn't. ["Yeah, because she's in another time zone." -- Wing Chun] In an interview, Kyle says that it's going to be weird for Tonya when she returns, because "she's missing these formative days." Kyle explains to Keri that they have all gotten to know each other quite a bit in the days that Tonya has been gone. In an interview, Kyle says that it's unfortunate Tonya had to get sick so soon, and that it would have been better if it happened later on. Keri thinks that Tonya will like Chicago once she gets used to it.
Cut to Walla Walla. The editors play some country music to let us know that it's a hick town. Thanks, editors. In an interview, Tonya explains that she was so sick, she had to come home to seek medical attention. The editors show us some cows and a roadside onion stand, to emphasize further the hick theme established by the music. In an interview, Tonya says that she never appreciated Walla Walla until she left and came back. Justin, Tonya's boyfriend, greets her at the airport. He's the one who's supposed to be all Richie Rich. I gotta say, he's not that cute. Tonya voice-overs that she feels better just holding Justin. They hug and kiss at the airport. Justin gives Tonya a ride home in his extended cab pick-up truck. Nice. Justin promises to get Tonya taken care of. In the truck, she scoots over and sits next to him and puts her head on his chest. I hate when girls do that. Put your seatbelt on and sit in your own damn seat. Hold hands if you must. When I see a girl sitting in the middle of a truck front seat while the guy is driving, I immediately think "handjob." Come on. Tonya explains to Justin that she's the only roommate who is dating someone, and that she's "a lot more stable" than her roommates. Ha! They couldn't have scripted that one any better. Tonya says that her life is all set while her roommates are still figuring out what they want. Tonya adds that her roommates love her and can't wait for her to get back. Justin laughs. He laughs! Even he knows how annoying she is! Tonya is clearly delusional. It must be from all the kidney pain.
