Kendall then says that Bianca hates her and wont ever listen to her. Erica says that this is the perfect chance for Kendall to redeem herself. She says that Bianca will then know Kendall is on her side, and things could get better in the future. Erica says that Bianca would later forgive her for coming between her and Lena. Kendall wonders.
