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.
Back in Chicago, Chris and Kyle are in the van. Chris says he noticed that Keri is very attached to Kyle. He wonders how Kyle is dealing with it, especially in light of his "situation back home." In an interview, Kyle says that he met his girlfriend Nicole two and a half years ago, and "jumped into this fairy-tale love." Kyle tells Chris that Keri is the coolest person there, and that he's attracted to her physically. However, his relationship with Nicole is a "storybook love," and he would never hurt her. Kyle didn't expect this to happen, because he has very strong willpower, and now he doesn't know what to do. Kyle adds that he would never cheat on someone he loves. Chris asks what Kyle will do if it happens anyway, and Kyle vows that he won't let it happen. I give him two more weeks.
Back at the loft, the red paint has been removed from the door. Or maybe they used an earlier shot of it. Anyway, CJP is writing an email to a friend, discussing her roommates. She describes Kyle as an all-American guy who looks like an Abercrombie model and has a crush on Keri. Oh, and that young American girls will fall in love with him. Why just American girls? Or did she mean Young Americans girls, as in girls who watched the show Young Americans. I don't know. Keri says that she thinks that she and Kyle are just friends, but CJP isn't buying it.
