Down the hall, CJP, Aneesa, and Theo talk about Tonya. CJP says that she only protects Tonya because someone has to. Tonya is in charge of protecting herself. No one else has to. CJP feels guilty because she thinks that Tonya likes her a lot. In an interview, CJP says that Tonya has "a lot of wonderful characteristics." She thinks, but doesnt say, "I can't think of any right now, but I'll get back to you." CJP does add that she would never choose Tonya as a friend. Aneesa says that Tonya is the odd one out in their situation, and that Tonya chooses that.
Back in Chicago, they must have let the artsy editor do this segment, because it's shots of Tonya driving the van and looking like she can't find her turn intercut with trains rushing by and interview footage. In an interview, Tonya says that she's very disappointed in her roommates, and that most of them are very superficial. Says the girl with the fake boobies and the boyfriend who goes to a tanning bed. Flashback to Theo telling Tonya off in the van, and revealing that everyone else talks shit behind Tonya's back. In an interview, Tonya says that she knew that her roommates would talk behind her back, and she should have been prepared for that. She vows not to let them know anything else about her so that they can just use it against her. For, like, one second there, I felt a little bit bad for Tonya. I mean, it does suck to be the odd one out, even if it's largely your own fault. And the girl obviously has problems. But don't worry. I'll get over it during the commercial break.
The roommates return to Chicago and express how happy they are to be back. CJP says that she feels overwhelmed by how much they have to get done in the next five days for their performance. In an interview, Kyle calls it "crunch time," like, shut up, Kyle.
The roommates arrive back at the loft and pretend they're excited to see Tonya. In an interview, CJP says that she's nervous to see Tonya because she's been having a great time without her. Tonya is the toxic roommate. I think everyone who has lived in a roommate-type situation has had at least one -- that person who you don't realize is such a pain until he or she is gone for a few days, and things are so much better. That's Tonya. In an interview, CJP talks about how excited Tonya is to see them, so she must have been lonely. In an interview, Tonya says that she's had enough time alone. But it's the same interview footage from earlier, where she was talking about how disappointed she is in her roommates, so I don't know why she would miss them. Unless she's a liar. Tonya and CJP discuss how much stuff they have to do for their performance. CJP promises that she is aware, and will worry about it and take care of it. In an interview, CJP says that she knows she can be a good director, but that it's hard to work with friends.
