It was a very appropriate background that set the stage this week for all the drama that went down at Third and Arch.
Cast members Sarah and Landon took a walk to Love Park to visit the famous Philly landmark. Their conversation turned to Becky, Landon’s ex of seven years. Landon tells Sarah that he is still in love with Becky because he feels that there was no closure for him to be able to move on and really let her go. Fate seemed to have been on Landon’s side because when he got back to the house there was a message that Becky had called and was in Philadelphia. He hoped that this phone call would be what he needed to reconnect with her. Once they met up, they headed over to Glam for some Philly style fun. Unfortunately, Becky’s friend couldn’t handle her Philly style fun and ended up sick. On the way home, while trying to keep Becky’s friend afloat, Landon tells Becky that he wants to reestablish their friendship and asks why she is being closed off to even that possibility. Becky’s friend is a mess and Landon wonders how Becky can be so unaware and so uncaring towards her when she is in such a dangerous position. They consider the hospital but decide to head back to their hotel. Landon and Becky share an awkward goodbye and Landon storms into the house. Sarah comes into the bathroom and finds Landon destroyed at the way his ex has treated him. Landon laments later in the confessional whether one can truly get over the memory of someone they love because as he says, they take over a part of your heart that you can never really get back.
Shavonda hardly takes a back seat to all of the drama this particular day. She still talks to Shaun, her apparent ex, and finds out that he lied to her about going to see his ex-girlfriend. She gains this information by tapping into Shaun’s email and viewing the airplane reservations he had booked to fly out and see her. Vonda tells him she can’t stand being lied to and lets her temper fly, cursing him out and hanging up on him.
Vonda and Landon bond over all of their love woes. A walk to Penn’s Landing confides that they now plan to use each other to lean on for support in the future. Could a romance be budding since these two lonely roommates are no longer attached? Maybe, but next week it seems Landon has a steamy soak in the hot tub with an unidentified female and Vonda more than dislikes it. Who is going to break up or break down next? Tune in next week for all of the juicy details.
