Frankie counters Spencer's argument by saying they're all adults and should hang out with whoever they want ? and suggests that Brody's birthday call was an attempt at reconciliation. The ball's in Spencer's court, but Spencer says he's ready to move forward.After touching down in NYC, Lauren and Whitney make their way to the Teen Vogue headquarters.

Amy and her staff don't seem very impressed, and Amy tells Whitney to go back and make a bunch of changes.Over at the design studio, Lauren works hard at dressing the models. Exhausted, she takes a seat as Marc Jacobs rolls into the room and introduces himself. After a hand shake, she nervously tells him she's alphabetizing.After a big day in NYC, Whitney and Lauren pack their bags and get ready to head back to The Hills. Lauren's still swooning from meeting Marc Jacobs and says she's going to give Lisa Love a hug as soon as she gets home. Although she had fun with Whitney, Lauren admits that she misses Brody.At Spencer and Heidi's apartment, Spencer gives Brody an unexpected phone call. Leaving a voicemail message, he says that he has a few things he'd like to talk over with his former BFF.Home from NYC, Whitney and Lauren arrive at Patina for a food tasting with Lisa Love.

As the food arrives, they toast the upcoming Young Hollywood party.That night, Brody stops by Lauren's apartment. As she gives him a big hug, he immediately takes notice of all the lit candles, asking if she's trying to set a mood. After Lauren quickly runs through her trip to NYC, Brody reveals he received an unexpected call from Spencer. His former BFF has finally reached out, but Brody hasn't called him back yet. Although he loves Spencer, Brody doesn't think the two can be friends again. When Lauren says she doesn't want to come between the former best buds, Brody insists he made this decision on his own.
