Eric says that when he got to the hotel, Heather and Julie were there. Eric says, "Seeing Julie for the first time in three years, I was just like 'Wow, there's Julie' and I was just like 'Wow.'" Well, they didn't cast him for his intellect, people. We see clips of Eric and Julie from their season. Julie says it feels like they lived together for a long time, but a long time ago, and any grievances are swept under the rug.
Now it's Saturday morning. Judd, Glenn, Mohammed, and Cory from SF all arrive. Beth A. and David from LA arrive as well. Kevin says they had lunch before the "symposium." Symposium? That must be what the producers told him to get him to show up. Anyway, at the lunch, they were all broken up into smaller groups with a mix of cast members from various seasons. Heather and Judd meet. David is not sure about seeing Tami, and that none of them called each other after the season so the wound is still there. Heather asks her table about David, but Judd says that wasn't his house. Heather asks Irene about David. Irene says they didn't know if he would go off, and that he was very temperamental. David tells us he was twenty-one, and now he's had two years of growing up. Kevin is sitting between Tami and David at lunch. Tami leans behind Kevin to talk to David, and the cameras are right there. She says that she's had a hard year, and it's good to see him, and that she saw a different side of the whole incident after it was over. David tells us that Tami apologized and that's all she had to say. Tami says that David was kind, and that they can put the incident behind them now. Maybe Tami is faking it for the reunion, but she seemed to handle that very maturely. They both did. David says the show has left all of them with a scar. Kevin says the reunion is closure for him. Rachel tells Tami she wanted to meet the "other bitch" and they slap hands. David says he has a "weird bond" with Puck (who is not at the lunch) because they are both named David, and that Puck is like his "bad half." Judd says that when people ask why they threw Puck out, he asks if they watched the show. Heather says that no one paid rent, so how could they kick someone out? I like Heather, but she didn't have to deal with someone nearly as toxic as Puck on her season. David may have gotten a bad rap, but I don't blame the SF cast for kicking Puck out. Judd says Puck "didn't care about anybody else and he made life hell." Tami asks Rachel if she dated Puck. Rachel wouldn't say "date," but there was an attraction. Kevin says she likes the "non-conformist type." Rachel says they'll see about Puck today, and she hopes they see "a little piece of David, because David's really nice, but if you see Puck, it's all about Puck" and that he'll sit there and go off. Lunch is over, and everyone walks to the auditorium. We see some shots of everyone getting made up and preparing for the show. Puck is there, and he tells Jo from SF not to touch him. She says she doesn't want to. Puck kind of raps, "I'm electric, and if you touch me, you'll get shocked."
An announcer introduces Alison Stewart. Remember Alison Stewart? Alison talks about how "the real world" is more than a catch phrase. Who uses "the real world" as a catch phrase? Alison is sitting all hunched over, like she has a stomach ache or really bad cramps. She says that the show started as an experiment, but has become "ground-breaking television" and part of "the cultural wallpaper." Who wrote this crap? Cultural wallpaper? Meanwhile, backstage, everyone is still getting ready. Puck has on a fake beard that looks like it's made out of Muppet fur. He says, "I'm Weird Beard and I'm here on behalf of Puck. I'm going to answer his questions." Okay, here is where I introduce my theory that Puck is seriously mentally ill, and not just unusual or annoying. His behavior is not normal, and it seems like he can't control it. I really think he needs a lot of therapy and possibly medication. Anyway, they are all in some sort of locker room and Puck tells Rachel to get out of "his dressing room" even though there are a bunch of other people in there too. Rachel just says whatever. Puck starts screaming at her, "It's not whatever! Get out!" Rachel says he wanted them to be mad and relive the whole "We hate Puck" eviction that everyone saw on TV, and that it was really weird. Puck yells out to nobody in particular, "Why are there so many people in my dressing room? Out!" Everyone pretty much ignores him.
