There’s a lot to be thankful for in the Thanksgiving week episode of The Hills – the discovery of an evil plot, numerous girls-gone-wild moments in Vegas, Justin-Bobby’s flash of abs, even Audrina’s 187th realization that he’s just not that into her and that’s probably a good thing – and it’s all leading up to next week’s big finale. – Carrie Bell
NEW TOWN, NEW TOOLS: They actually got off Kristin’s couch and hit the Strip. Kristin talked a big game about flirting and hooking up her way to forgetting her L.A. boy baggage. “We’re here to meet Mr. Right Now,” her friend encouraged. After making sure they both didn’t wear too-similar sequin tops (Guess matching pewter leather mini-motorcycle jackets were okay though!), the pretty pair quickly gained the attention of a few tools who wanted to party and bootie bounce. KC excused herself to the balcony and broke the road-trip pact by calling Justin-Bobby. “I should be having the time of my life. I’m not. Your name keeps popping in my head. I’m putting myself out there.”
VEGAS, BOBBY, VEGAS: Apparently, her bootie call is powerful. Stacie found JB in KC’s shower the next morning while KC was busy indulging in the breakfast of champions – ice cream and champagne. She tried to play coy, but eventually admitted she “sinned in Sin City.” Stacie was flabbergasted to see him there (or maybe it was just seeing that bad stomach tatt), but KC seemed giddy and rationalized, “At least he showed up and I didn’t make an ass out of myself.” She later told him that she was surprised he showed and he sweetly admitted that she makes him do things he doesn’t usually do. (We have to admit, as dirty as it makes us feel, sometimes he can be quite charming.) As with many Vegas stories, their’s involved a strip club, a lesbian kiss between friends, some carefully cropped rated-X lap dance action, overuse of the word “whoa” and hangovers.
THE MOURNING AFTER: She showed no signs of regret for not keeping it classy the night before (MTV is truly getting what they paid and prayed for in Lauren’s replacement. I think a few husbands watched this episode for once.) and was glad JB came to party. But the talk turned serious when she wanted to know what’s next. “What happens when we go back to the real world? Are we going to hang out after Vegas? It’s easy when no one else is around.” He was typical non-committal JB with a wait-and-see plan.
TESTING 1, 2, 3: Spencer bragged about “the best night of his married life” to his boyfriend Charlie while getting his new toy, a muscle car that should be nicknamed General Quarter-life Crisis, washed. Charlie was immediately suspicious of lingerie at the dinner table and suggested she might have ulterior motives of the impregnate-me variety. “Heidi would never do something like that,” Spencer defended. Charlie suggested he run a few tests to smoke out the truth. While a prize candidate for the Darwin Awards who doesn’t “do seatbelts,” he happened to be correct this time. She failed both the shellfish and spirits test at date night and wanted to chat about her “favorite subject” Enzo. The third test, the kind one pees on, was found in the trash, which sent Spencer into hysterics. Again he turned to his bromantic advisor who had these wise words, “Bro, that’s rough.” To be fair, he followed that up with the suggestion of confronting her immediately. Spencer was tearing up and couldn’t find the humor in Charlie’s wisecracks. “If she’s pregnant, game over. I’m gonna have a serious meltdown if she tells me that. I’m gonna have the kid who will grow up and kill me. I can feel it. Me is not a baby.” (We didn’t agree with her forced-fatherhood plan before and now we really don’t.)
DONE AND DONE-ER: Audrina went out for yet another dinner with the delicious Derek where the hot topic of conversation was her ex. She has been the girl who cried wolf many times before in regard to JB, although she seemed fairly resolute that she was done being a punching bag. She insists that this time was the last time Derek, who obviously longs to make ole ceiling eyes his own, would hear her talk about him. “I spent four and a half years on a roller coaster and I need to get off. He’ll never change.” (His facial expression looked as incredulous as ours.)
