They say all good things must come to an end.

So, too, must Khloe & Lamar.

Amid the surprising downturn in his career, the divorce rumors and reports that the show will end after last night's season finale, the stakes were high for the beloved couple.

Did they persevere, prove that love always conquers all, and end the season (possibly the series) on a high note? Let's find out in our Khloe & Lamar recap ...

Khloe Kardashian notices Lamar Odom acting a little off. "I'm not used to this negative, somber man," she said. Reality TV will do that too a man. Minus 20.

Lamar admits that he's been holding a lot of pain in, especially after the violent death of his cousin. Okay, Plus 20 to negate our previous snap judgment.

"Every time when I'm like really down and out, no matter what, Khlo - is one person I can always count on." Plus 10 for that genuinely sweet sentiment.

Then things quickly turn scripted again when Kim calls about the celebrity gossip story of the week Khloe is not a biological Kardashian. Minus 15.

This week Khloe & Lamar's aired as rumors swirl around the couple in real life.

Amid divorce rumors and reports that the show will end after next week's season finale, having sort of killed Lamar's NBA career, the trials and tribulations of Rob Kardashian's allegely OCD behavior seemed a bit trivial.

Hey, sometimes they script this stuff too far in advance to stay topical.

Let's break down what went on Sunday in our Khloe & Lamar recap ...

Khloe and Lamar and Rob

"I've had different variations of things that I'm super anal about, or super OCD about," Rob explains. "It doesn't really affect my life ... we all are like that in my family." True, but Minus 10 because we're already bored.

At least Khlo has Malika and Rob to chill with. Plus 5.

Until she doesn't need them apparently. Jealousy arises as KK hangs with a brand new gal pal (and Russell Simmons ex), Porschla Coleman.

"I don't know if Malika feels threatened because I have a new friend," Khloe notes, "but no one is trying to have sex with me, like, I don't get why do you need to be protective." Minus 10 because that would make for a better show.

Lamar Odom has succeeded where so many before him have failed: at standing up to Kris Jenner.

The Kardashian matriarch had reportedly been pressuring her son-in-law to give up professional basketball and dedicate himself fully to the life of a talentless, shameless hack reality TV star.

But TMZ now confirms Odom has gone in the opposite direction and will be concluding his series with wife Khloe Kardashian after this season in order to focus on his faltering NBA career.

Khloe & Lamar Picture

The heretofore solid sixth man was placed on the inactive list by the Dallas Mavericks a few weeks ago after failing to connect with teammates, showing general laziness and falling to career lows in points and rebounds.

He's now intent, though, on reviving his career, with insiders saying he'll reside full-time in Los Angeles and work out with personal trainers.

The most recent episode of Khloe & Lamar earned -65 points from our critic, as it focused on Khloe's family visiting the struggling couple in Dallas.

This week on Khloe & Lamar, the couple continued struggling as they adjust to life in a new city, with a new team, no friends around, and so forth.

Fortunately, or unfortunately, Khloe's family paid a visit.

Lamar's return to L.A. was documented last week. Now it's Rob Kardashian and Kris Jenner's turn to come to Dallas. How did everything turn out?

Let's find out in Sunday's Khloe & Lamar recap ...

Lamar Odom on the Bench

"Being new to a city, not knowing anyone, I'm definitely lonely," Khloe Kardashian says. "Now that Rob's here it gives me someone to hang out with." Guess the best friend/assistant and camera crew aren't cutting it. Minus 10.

Khloe and Lamar reveal that they'd like Rob to move to Dallas. "I don't want to take a step backwards," he says. Ouch, Dallas. Ouch. Plus 20.

"I get it," Khloe says. "You have your own life, but Lamar needs you right now, Rob, like your boy is hurting…[and] I am really lonely in Dallas." Minus only 5, because as lame as Khloe is, what else does Rob have going on exactly?

"Mark Cuban takes care of me," Kris Jenner says. Minus 15 for Mark Cuban.

This week on Khloe & Lamar, the tandem took a brief hiatus from having emotional talks about babies to get all emotional about Odom's return to L.A.

"I got a game coming up versus the L.A. Lakers, my former team," he says of his first game back. "It's going to be a little weird playing against them."

How did Lamar do against Kobe Bryant, Metta World Peace & Co.? It almost didn't matter, given the warm reception he was given at Staples Center.

What else went down in Tinseltown? On to Sunday's recap!

Lamar Odom and Kobe Bryant

Khloe Kardashian feels tense once they're back in their home and reality starts to sink in, saying, "I can't really imagine how that feels and the pressure." It doesn't compare to the paparazzi following you to the Ivy, no. Plus 20.

Lamar's BFF Jamie Sangouthai is feeling the effects of Odom's trade to Dallas, too. "I feel like I got traded too, but I'm still here," he tells Lamar. "I don't get the VIP treatment anymore." Dude, way to make it about you. Minus 50.

"He didn't even say 'How are you?' or 'How you're doing?' or 'Are you OK?' I'm the one who had to get up and move and go play for a different team." - Lamar to Khloe. Plus 10 for noticing and calling out that nonsense.

This week on Khloe & Lamar, Odom continued struggling to Dallas, while the topic of kids kame up ... surely without any prompting from the producers.

"No matter where I turn, everyone asks me when can they expect a baby," Khloe fake laments. "And now Lamar's grandmother. No pressure whatsoever."

Ryan Seacrest Productions is really cracking the whip, it's true.

There's no manufacturing the drama in Lamar's career, however, as his tenure in Dallas was a miserable failure and ended with him leaving the team.

But that's for another episode. On to Sunday's recap!

Lamar Odom on the Mavs

"If I don't take advantage of the time I have in the game, who knows if I'm going to get the change again." - Lamar. True, his stock TANKED in Big D. Minus 40.

But hey, at least he's due $8 million in 2012-13 regardless. Plus 20.

Kim Kardashian komes to keep Khloe kompany. Booooo! Minus 25.

Khloe reveals what she thinks is the real source of Lamar's problem: the murder of his cousin. No points, because the crickets are too loud for us to think.

"Lamar has never been able to be the one to break down," Khloe says. "I don't think he realizes what's really bothering him." She could be right. Plus 10.

One week after we saw Lamar Odom traded to Dallas, Bruce and Kris Jenner decided to pay a visit to bid farewell to Khloe Kardashian on Khloe & Lamar.

While Bruce supports Khloe's decision to move to Big D, it's more than Kris can take ... at least according to the script from Ryan Seacrest Productions.

Fans of the couple (assuming there are some) have been looking forward to watching this play out since news of the trade broke, so let's recap it all ...

"We all know you're a strong girl, and you have to be there for everybody else. But who's going to be there for Khloe?" - Kris. Um, the whole giant family? Also, he's just an NBA superstar who got traded, not a fallen soldier. Minus 10.

"My family and I have never really lived apart, but Lamar needs me." - Khloe. Plus 50.

That he does. When she arrives, she senses something amiss with his transient lifestyle in Dallas. "Lamar is so sore and tired and he needs his own bed. I have got to find us a place ASAP," she says. Attentive wife. Plus 20.

Lamar's feeling the heat: "Being on a new team for the first time, everything is mental and all eyes are on me. The pressure is on." Minus only 5, because while the man gets paid millions to perform under pressure, we do sympathize.

High drama on Khloe & Lamar this week, and for once, it wasn't even all contrived.

Yes, the Dallas Mavericks' trade for Lamar Odom might not go down as a brilliant move from a personnel standpoint, but it will always have this footnote:

It produced a genuine, unscripted reaction from a Kardashian. Well done, Dallas.

Fans of the couple (assuming there are some) have been looking forward to this episode since news of Lamar's trade broke. So let's recap it all ...

The NBA lockout is over! Bring on the massive paychecks! Plus 20!

Oh, and you might be traded, Lamar's agent says. Ouch. Minus 30.

"That stuff is more stressful than not playing basketball," Lamar says. "It's part of our business, but hopefully I can stay in L.A." Except that some reports suggested he had actually asked for the trade or was at least consulted all along. Minus 25.

"Our world can turn upside down," Khloé says of Lamar being dealt, which happens while she's on the plane to New York for "work." He gets traded to the New Orleans Hornets, a trade which is nullified, confusing everyone. Plus 15.

He's still getting traded like ASAP. Minus 10.

There was no shortage of issues on Khloe & Lamar last night.

While Lamar struggled to allow his father Joe back into his life, Malika Haqq wrestled with the idea of getting breast implants. What did she end up deciding?!?!

Khloe Kardashian, of course, was the sidekick in each of these plot lines, and ever so helpful. Come along for THG's recap of the Khloe & Lamar madhouse:

Lamar's father Joe calls him and suggests they go on a trip together. Cute idea that Ryan Seacrest Productions came up with, but Lamar balks. Plus 13.

"My father was in and out of my life for a long period of time. He wants to go on vacation, but I've gotta draw the line." - Lamar. That line was crossed when you signed on for this show, man, but Minus only 7 because daddy issues are tough.

At dinner, Joe asks if Lamar has any bracelets he can have. Good ice-breaker. Minus 12.

Turkey and Armenia have a strained relationship, dating back to the former's massacre of the Ottoman Armenian population between 1915 and 1917.

Why do we bring up such historical atrocities on a celebrity gossip site? Because Khloe Kardashian does so on this Sunday's installment of her painful reality show, reacting to the possibility of her husband playing overseas in Turkey with a phone call to her uncle.

Would it actually be permissible for someone of Armenian descent to live on that country? It's a complicated question, but Khloe can at least take solace in the fact that it was contrived for television: Lamar Odom was never considering such a career move.
