Parisa and Trisha continue their screaming match and Shauvon's faced with a big decision.
The Real World drama Down Under keeps escalating, as Trisha and Parisa continue their screaming match over Alex that began during the last episode. Shauvon tries to calm Parisa down, but the girls just keep going at it. Trisha tells Parisa that all the other girls in the house talk about her behind her back, and Parisa fires back, saying that no one in the house likes Trisha. As Parisa walks away to go talk to Dunbar, Trisha chases after her, screaming that neither Dunbar nor Alex will ever want to be with her.
Later, Trisha confronts Dunbar to find out if Parisa's claim is true, asking him straight up if he likes her. After an awkward pause, he evades the question, saying he just thinks of her as "Trisha." Then he adds that all the guys want to do is steer clear of the girl drama.
Trisha then moves on to Cohutta, trying to defend the fact that she kissed Alex when she has a boyfriend back home. Although Trisha says she told her boyfriend about her friendship with Alex, she admits that she neglected to mention the kiss the two shared. She wants to fess up, but she's afraid of getting dumped.
The next morning, Parisa and Trisha are civil toward each other. At breakfast, Parisa tells the other Real World girls that she doesn't ever want to retaliate with that level of anger again. She's glad she's said her peace, but she wishes she'd been calmer about the whole situation.
That night, Shauvon spends some quality time with a new friend, Andrew. As the two get flirty, the rest of the housemates get confused -- isn't this the same girl that keeps talking about her ex-fiancé, David, and how much she still loves him?
After parting ways with Andrew the next day, Shauvon decides that hooking up with him was a mistake. Although drinking and flirting with new guys has distracted her from the pain of breaking up with David, she realizes that it might not be the best solution. On the phone with her mom, Shauvon says she's feeling guilty about being single and having fun while in Sydney.
Walking around the fish market with Trisha, Shauvon says she wants to work things out with David and stay in Sydney, but she's not sure that's what he wants. In tears, she writes him a long email, saying that she's been thinking about him. Then, talking to Trisha, Shauvon says she struggles every day with whether or not she should wear the engagement ring that David gave her.
At lunch, Trisha asks her Real World roommates for advice about when she should tell her boyfriend, Jarod, that she kissed Alex. With Jarod's visit to Sydney looming on the horizon, Cohutta thinks it's best to immediately tell him on the phone and let him decide if he still wants to make the trek around the world. Isaac admits he feels bad for Jarod because his name's been dragged through the mud and no one's even met him yet. He also thinks that kissing another guy proves that Trisha doesn't love Jarod as much as she keeps saying she does.
That night, Trisha calls Jarod and tells him that Alex is no longer allowed in the house. When Jarod asks why, she says that Alex kissed her when she was drunk. Jarod says he trusted Trisha but now doesn't know what to think about their relationship, leaving things up in the air.
As soon as Trisha hangs up, Parisa asks if it's OK for her to keep hanging out with Alex. Trisha says yes, under one condition: Parisa can't bring Alex around The Real World house. Frustrated, Parisa tells Trisha not to tell her what to do, and the two land in yet another heated argument.
Meanwhile, David emails Shauvon back and she couldn't be happier about it. He's willing to give their relationship another try, and Shauvon hopes that he's cool with her staying in Sydney for a few more weeks. With her heart pounding, she calls him on the phone. He breaks down in tears, saying he misses her, causing her to also cry. But Shauvon's bliss is short-lived when David says he doesn't want her to stay in Sydney. Shauvon doesn't want to leave The Real World, but David says she must choose -- it's either him or her roomies. After hanging up, Shauvon takes to her bed in tears, unable to decide what she should do.
