Scott and Kendall are bickering over him not being invited to her birthday party in this episode, which picks up right where last week's left off.

With her hastily sliced cucumbers in tow, she storms out.

Kris Jenner's new patio is covered in pretzels, and he runs off to Kourtney's house to debrief.

I had my reservations about the apparent spontaneity of this scenario at Kourtney's after years of being acclimated to the far more staged world of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, in which it appeared that every scene was laid out on a call sheet weeks in advance.

But everything checks out; I didn’t notice any continuity errors (i.e. Kendall’s jewelry and nail polish match up) and Khloé’s indoor sunglasses to hide her lack of full glam signal that it really was an unexpected shoot. 

That's all I need to be persuaded, so props to production for always being ready to pick up and go wherever the tale leads.

They're summoned to Kourtney's bedroom this time (much like Travis Barker), where Kendall tells her sisters about her confrontation with Scott.

Scott is victimising himself, villainizing everyone else, and the entire family is stuck in the middle because Kourtney refuses to set ground rules.

Kourtney, on the other hand, seemed to be completely uninterested in the dialogue. Regardless, they try to bring her down from wherever planet her Blink-182 spaceship landed on and have her hash this out with Scott so that they don't get caught in the crossfire.

Meanwhile, Kim is working on criminal justice reform alongside Scott Budnick, the founder of the Anti-Recidivism Coalition, with whom she is collaborating.
