This week’s scene is much more believable than last week’s. The deception isn’t nearly as large, and the reaction is much larger. Lee is an actual person who hasn’t been very straightforward, not just the creation of a troubled teen on her laptop. And yet Trina is much more hurt than Sunny seemed to be. She’s really disappointed.
Nev drives Trina over to her friend’s house, reminding her all the way that it could have been much worse. Oh Nev. We’re not all so anxious to befriend the crazies. Trina’s friend is all sweet, wanting to hear the whole story. Trina lists all the ways that Lee was lying. The age, the kids, he didn’t have a six pack, he’s not in shape, he’s not athletic at all and he’s not 6’ 1”. I’m starting to see Trina’s priorities here. She wonders how she never knew he was lying. My theory is she didn’t want to know. I think that’s the deal in most of these cases. These people are terrified of finding out this wonderful fantasy isn’t true. So they believe that the other person doesn’t know how to skype or is always out of town. That way they can put off the disappointment of finding out the truth. Her friend wonders if maybe Trina can see past his looks if she was really so into this guy. Trina is doubtful. But she agrees to talk to him again.
The next day Trina puts on her blonde curly hair and heads over to talk to Lee again. She ponders on the one-of-a-kind friendship she has with Lee. They meet at a park – neutral territory.
They have a friendly chat about the situation and Trina asks Lee why he didn’t give her THIS version of himself. He says he got caught up, which I’m sure is true. But I think we can probably guess that Trina wouldn’t have paid much attention to Lee without the Scorpio pictures. I mean, she seemed more disappointed in his HEIGHT than in the fact that he lied about his children. I’m certainly not saying that this is Trina’s fault (entirely). I’m just wondering if maybe she hasn’t passed up some nice guys in the past because of her appearance requirements. Lee says he’d like another chance with Trina and she says she’s relieved to discover that his personality is genuine. She tells him she’s still mad, so he has a lot of work to do. But she doesn’t want to lose his friendship. Yeah, no one wants to lose the friendship of the person who has easily lied to them about various things for an entire year. They hug and I guess they’ve made Nev’s day because they say they’re going to be friends. He makes them all pose for a picture.
Our update tonight is only one month later, so really what are they going to tell us? Well, Lee has stopped posing as Scorpio, he’s not in a relationship and he still talks to Trina a couple of times a week. He hopes that their romance can blossom again. Trina’s not dating anyone either, but she HAS stopped stripping. Right. Why now? But she learned a lot from this experience and yadda, yadda yadda. Time for the three-way skype with the REAL Scorpio. When he comes onscreen Trina gets all flustered and messes with her hair. He’s polite and flattered.
