Our tale begins at dinner where Lo tells Lauren and Audrina how excited she is about her new job at Smashbox Studios with founder Davis Factor. When Lauren asks Audrina for an update on her status with her ex-bf, Justin, Audrina reveals that he found out about her sleepover with Brody in Hawaii. She says that although Justin keeps texting and calling she won't respond. Lauren tells Audrina that she's proud of her for resisting the urge to run back to Justin. But, when Lauren asks Audrina if she's happier without her off-again, on-again beau, Audrina hesitantly responds, "As long as I don't see his face."
After the opening credits, it's a new day, and Lauren and Stephanie are on a work-lunch break from People's Revolution. Stephanie tells Lauren that she's still scared of Kelly. Lauren explains to Stephanie that Kelly isn't trying to be scary, but she's in charge of a company with a lot of people below her whose "little mess-ups" reflect on Kelly. Stephanie concludes she's going to take a break from stressing about work and go on a man-hunt instead. Lauren warns her, "I don't think you need to stop stressing about work just yet." Not taking the hint, Stephanie tells Lauren about a guy, Robert, she just met. Lauren tells her she supports the boy watching, but it shouldn't take away from work time.
Meanwhile, Heidi is out to lunch with her co-worker Kimberly. She asks Kimberly for advice about Stacie, the girl who keeps causing strife between Heidi and Spencer. Apparently, Stacie texted Heidi asking her to meet at the bar where she bartends to talk. Kimberly says Heid should go down there, otherwise Heidi will be curious about what Stacie has to say. "Keep your friends close and your enemies closer," Kimberly advises. "Just go over there and end it."
Over at People's Revolution, Lauren is telling Stephanie about a big photo shoot with Smashbox they have tomorrow. Lauren is excited to be working with Lo, who just got her Smashbox gig, but is nervous about styling solo for the first time. She asks Stephanie to pack the rest of the photo shoot clothes for her while Lauren runs errands. But, Stephanie gets distracted by a phone call from Robert while Lauren is in the middle of explaining what she needs to do. In a hurry, Lauren gives Stephanie one final reminder and then leaves.
We then transition to nighttime and Audrina is working a showcase for Epic Records at Swing House. Justin calls Audrina to talk about what is going on with them. Audrina, working and in a rush to get off the phone, agrees to meet with him the next evening.
The next day, Lauren and Lo are working the photo shoot at Smashbox Studios when Lauren realizes that Stephanie forgot to pack the clothes she needed for the photo shoot. Lauren frantically calls Stephanie, who is out to lunch with Robert. Stephanie tells Lauren she's sure she put the right clothes in the bags, but doesn't seem in a hurry to leave her lunch. Frustrated, Lauren hangs up after declaring, "I'll just figure it out on my own." Lauren tells Lo not to worry and sends a messanger back to People's Revolution to get the clothes they need.
The sun sets, and we join Heidi. She has just sat down to meet Stacie, who is bartending at The Dime. Stacie tells Heidi that she's glad she came, because she wants to apologize for the things they've said to each other. Refusing to accept any blame for their feuding, Heidi tells Stacie, "If you didn't want to be part of this, you would have walked away a long time ago." Their talk begins to escalate. It ends with Stacie calling Heidi crazy and Heidi calling Stacie a rude, homewrecking slut. They sarcastically wish each other luck with their lives, and Heidi leaves.
We transition over to a restaurant where Audrina meets up with Justin. As soon as she sits down, Audrina launches into her explanation for why they need to stop seeing each other. "I came to say goodbye face-to-face and that's it," she says before telling Justin not to contact her anymore. Audrina gets up to leave and Justin follows after her. They argue outside where Justin brings up her spending the night in Brody's room in Hawaii. Their conversation is cut short when Audrina finally walks away for good.
The next day, Audrina meets up with Stephanie to tell her about her run-in with Justin. Audrina tells her that her and Justin's relationship is over for good this time. "I look at him and I think of all the bad things now,"she says. Audrina asks Stephanie how work is going, and Stephanie tells Audrina that she doesn't think it's going well at People's Revolution.
Over at Heidi and Spencer's apartment, Heidi tells Spencer that she met with Stacie the night before and told her to stay away from them. Spencer is upset, and he says it's humiliating that Heidi still thinks he would cheat on her. Heidi dares Spencer to "find another Stacie and see what happens with that."
Meanwhile, Lauren and Stephanie are at People's Revolution. Stephanie apologizes for forgetting the clothes Lauren needed for the Smashbox photo shoot. Stephanie admits that she steamed them but got distracted when Robert called. Stephanie tells Lauren to blame her for everything, but Lauren says, "[Kelly Cutrone] told me that your mistakes are mine."
Kelly walks in soon after Lauren and Stephanie's conversation and asks to see Lauren in her office. Kelly goes off about Stephanie not getting the clothes they needed for the photo shoot. "Any fashion girl who's serious about her career, when they got that phone call--even if they were about to get engaged, would have said 'Nice ring, excuse me. I'll be right back,'" Kelly ranted. She then tells Lauren to fire Stephanie by the end of the week.
