The latest episode of Kourtney & Kim Take New York opens with both Kris Humphries and Scott Disick awol, and Kim and Kourtney Kardashian surveying the damage from their Manhattan duplex.
Even Scott Disick’s parents are livid with him, while Kim Kardashian’s best friend Jonathan Cheban expresses his concern that Kris Humphries has fled to Minnesota.
Jonathan Cheban also calms Scott Disick’s father, who calls his son a “mental case” as Kourtney Kardashian sticks to plans to visit them in the Hamptons, even without their son.
Then Khloe Kardashian arrives to stage a double intervention.
“I miss my sisters so much, and it is the last big weekend of the summer and we are going to the Hamptons.”
First up, Khloe Kardashian tries to play peacemaker between Kourtney and Scott Disick, after receiving unprecedented calls from the angry Disick.
The crux of the problem for Kourtney Kardashian is soon pinpointed as Scott Disick’s drinking, and the destruction that habit wrought in Miami.
Khloe Kardashian tells Kourtney that Scott Disick wants to sleep in the same bed as her, and wants to feel like “he’s the man”.
She then turns to Kim, and tells her that she should go to Minnesota, and say: “I find it a little odd as it’s been a few months and usually the first year is when you’re most obsessed with that person.”
Khloe Kardashian also talks about how she scaled down work to focus on her relationship with Lamar Odom.
Kim Kardashian then cancels her Hampstons plans with her sisters and plans to head to Minnesota to spend time with Kris Humphries, vowing: “I will do whatever it takes to make it work.”
After a tanning session, a grumpy Kim Kardashian swears at her sisters for disrupting her lie in as they head to Long Beach for their weekend away.
Kim Kardashian rails at Khloe for not being supportive and says: “She doesn’t like Kris so she’s purposefully trying to mess with me.”
She then calls the girls in the car, and continues to vent on speaker-phone… prompting her sisters to say she is acting out of character.
“Think she’s just p***ed as she’s married to a barking dog,” Khloe Kardashian quips to Kourtney’s guffaws.
Kim Kardashian then sends Khloe messages over Blackberry messenger calling her sister an “evil troll” and “spiteful”.
Jonathan Cheban persuades Scott Disick to go to his parents’ home to see Kourtney Kardashian and their son, Mason.
Meanwhile Kim Kardashian arrives in Minnesota and initially the reunion is sweet.
But Kris Humphries said he missed his wife but not the chaos of their New York living arrangement and Kim Kardashian admits she is hurt that he is so comfortable with sleeping separately.
And the romantic tone is somewhat sullied when Kris Humphries tells Kim Kardashian he can tell she had been travelling because her armpits smelled of: “Uncooked fish and hot garbage.”
Back in the Hamptons, Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian are offered some alone time by Aunty Khloe, but Kourtney remains frosty to Scott.
“All she cares about is her role as a mom, but she has to remember that she has another boy, and that’s me,” Scott Disick complains.
Khloe Kardashian stages an intervention and negotiates “alone time” for Scott Disick with her sister Kourtney.
Meanwhile Kris Humphries is being told by his trainer that marriage “adds 50 pounds to you”, and Kris 6ft9 quips “and takes off inches”, before asking his trainer if he will come to New York.
Kim Kardashian attempts to be domestic, and prepares a homecooked meal after Kris Humphries “manfully” brings home the groceries.
“Is this what it feels like to be actually married,” Kris Humphries says happily.
Kris Humphries attempts to sell Minnesota and says he misses the lake, Kim Kardashian begs him to compromise but he says he “can’t afford to fly back and forth”.
But there is a hint of suspicion as Kris Humphries asks Kim Kardashian who “put her up to” the trip and domesticity.
Kim Kardashian cuts her finger and Kris Humphries says: “You really haven’t been in the kitchen for a while.”
Kris Humphries also mentions that Khloe Kardashian left Miami for Lamar Odom and says: “It’s great you have a role model like that.”
Khloe Kardashian opens up about Kim in the Hamptons: “I don’t want the things she wants in life, I don’t compete with her, she’s in her own lane.”
Kim Kardashian finally gets the sleep she’s been craving and decides to confront Kris, she tells him it’s his “off season” and he should be living with her, but Kris Humphries blames distractions.
Kim Kardashian yells: “You have to meet me halfway,” as Kris Humphries lolls on the sofa chanting: “You don’t want me to resent you baby, do you?”
She then storms off saying she’ll skype him to “say goodbye”.
Later they share a tender moment, and Kim Kardashian tells Kris Humphries: “We’re not going to have a successful marriage if we live in separate states,” which combined with tears prompts him to act.
Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian enjoy a double date but he confronts her about de-cluttering his parents’ home and throwing out a beloved chess set.
But then it’s back to New York for all key players, and the showdown, “the Hump is back!” Kourtney Kardashian yells as Kris Humphries insists he will make it work.
But Kim Kardashian ignores her sister Khloe as she gushes to Kourtney about Kris Humphries, Khloe calls her insincere and the sisters part on bad terms as Khloe leaves to fly back to LA.
