The City Season Finale Recap: "Everything on the Line"

by at . Comments

On The City season finale last night, Whitney Port put it all on the (clothing) line, while Erin Kaplan told her boss at Elle that it's gonna be her or Olivia Palermo.

Below, The Hollywood Gossip staff breaks down the events on last night's episode, awarding and deducting points as we deem appropriate. Let's get to it ...

Port at Paley Fest

OMG Whitney Port looks so summery and cute, we can hardly stand it. Plus 2.

Erin is on the kill-Olivia warpath from the get-go. This could be good. Plus 3.

Kelly Cutrone on why Roxy shouldn't go to Whit's meeting: "Don't you think she should bring someone who knows what the f*%k they're doing?" Plus 16.

Olivia's handling of criticism: "I'm going to refrain from commenting." That's real professional. Minus 7, because as we said last week, she shouldn't have a job.

As Whitney panics about her presentation, dramatic music crescendos and the Bergdorf Goodman buyers roll up into the building like gangsters. Plus 5.

Whitney Port can do no wrong, even in failure.

Al Roker sighting on Today! Don't tell Spencer Pratt! Plus 3.

Olivia massively flakes, even for her, leaving Joe Zee high and dry. Minus 10, but Plus 2 because at least the Today peeps always refer to him as "Joe Zee."

MTV totally changed its absurd promo for Jersey Shore to hype up the hottest, tannest, craziest housemates instead of guidos! No points, it's just hilarious.

Whitney's presentation kind of bombs, but we're giving it a Plus 25 for the following reasons: 1. She handled it gracefully. 2. She didn't get preferential treatment, and shouldn't. 3. Kelly's stuck by her and wants to help launch a full line!

After Olivia's royal f*%k up, Erin has it out with her and Joe, telling her boss it's either her or Olivia. Right before the credits roll, Joe picks ... no one! A whole season of a boring, repetitive story line and no resolution! Wow, MTV. Minus 36.

TOTAL: +3. SEASON TOTAL: +5. While we'll always love Whitney, The City failed to deliver a classic (or any) confrontation to salvage the Olivia-Erin "drama."

Thus, the episode and season barely end in positive territory. Not a total waste, but should there even be a Season 3? If so, will it decide what it wants to be?
