AMC by Suzanne
Kendall does a great job at the cosmetics convention in Aspen. She sees someone that she thinks is Aidan at first. She meets a handsome businessman named Michael Kinsey and they hit it off great (the bartender calls him by another last name). Erica is incensed that Kendall is there, doing well, and using Erica's name to get people to listen to her. She tells Kendall off, even though Kendall says Erica inspired her. Michael disappears but Kendall is just glad about the great night they had (he has to leave early the next morning). Petey gets into trouble when he's left on his own, buying ice cream for the other kids and making everyone sick. Chris surprises Erica by showing up and they make up. They aren't happy to see Kendall when they go out to dinner. Chris urges her to ignore Kendall but they decide to leave. Bianca makes plans to go on a lesbian cruise. She is surprised when Boyd tells her that he's in love with Kendall and that Kendall really was eager to learn about the business when she was there. Lena comes in and says she needs to get into some important files on the computer but it's not taking her access code. Bianca tries to get it for her but Val says he can't give her the code without Erica's authorization. Lena chats with Bianca and when it comes up that she's from Europe, she suggests that perhaps Bianca would like it more there (since she's a lesbian). Lena compliments her and it almost seems like she's flirting.
