For so early in the season this episode was really lacking. Lauren continued to scheme to no avail and it appears that she will never learn her lesson even as she sees her actions negatively affecting her. Her grandmother called her out for having no class and she felt like she had no friends after choosing Carter over her relationship with Kaylie. Carter is the most boring character and hopefully they will slowly phase him out of the show, he's played his part and no longer has anything interesting to offer. Payson continued to be headstrong and was really insensitive to her mother even though she saw the right path in the end.
The girls versus boys competition was entertaining, but pointless.
The inevitable flirtation between Kaylie and the new bad boy at the gym just isn't very intriguing.
