EDITOR'S NOTE: While The Hills is usually totally predictable due to the deluge of paparazzi photos / spoilers online, we totally did not expect Doug Reinhardt to be cock-blocked by Brody Jenner's mom. Best surprise plot twist ever!

As this episode of The Hills gets underway, Lauren Conrad packs for a trip to Italy. The reason for the trip is never explained. Nor does it matter.

Speidi Smooch

Like five seconds after LC leaves, Stephanie Pratt arrives to tell Audrina Patridge about how Doug Reinhardt asked her out. Audrina suggests to Stephanie that she wait until Lauren gets back and just give her a little heads up.

Audrina and Lo - who are apparently getting along better these days - have lunch and Audrina her in about the Stephanie-Doug Reinhardt date sitch.

Lo is flabbergasted. Audrina says that's a no-no, then wonders aloud why Stephanie Pratt would want sloppy seconds. Audrina's words, not ours!

THE VOICE OF REASON: For once, it was Audrina Patridge talking sense into people (or at least trying to) on this typically drama-filled episode of MTV's The Hills.

That night at Goa, Audrina and Lo are chillin' when whaddaya know, Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag arrive! Heidi says hi to Auds, who seems genuinely happy to see her. Lo, however, looks like she wants to stab herself in the eye with a fork.

Heidi, like, cannot believe about Doug Reinhardt and Stephanie Pratt either, then invites Audrina and Lo to a Bolthouse X-Games Party the next night. There they hang out with Justin-Bobby, who's looking like an even bigger d-bag than usual!

Back to normal. After Sunday night's special airing of "Boys Make Girls Cry" to hype the MTV VMAs, The Hills returned to its normal time slot Monday.

The lead story: Brody Jenner in jail. 

G-Cups

The morning after Frankie Delgado's birthday bash, Lauren Conrad, Stephanie Pratt, and Lo Bosworth tried to track down Brody and Doug Reinhardt and figure out what jail they were taken to - and what happened that sparked their detention.

LC and her posse consider calling places that offer bail, but considering they're in Las Vegas of all places, that's a bit of a wild goose chase.

Just as they become dejected and think there's no way they'll figure it out, Frankie walks into the hotel room with Brody and Doug right behind him. 

Brody Jenner's gal pals weren't so happy with him on The Hills last night.

Turns out that Brody Jenner and Doug Reinhardt got in a fight in the casino and ended up in a holding room right there, on the premises. Not jail.

So, after weeks of hype about Brody in jail, he was not actually in jail. Talk about misleading your audience. That's almost Grey's Anatomy-esque!

Either way, Lauren Conrad was far from pleased, calling them "idiots."

Meanwhile, at Casa de Pratt, Spencer has had enough of Holly Montag.

MTV sucks.

Sorry, but it's true. First, with no notice, they decide to air a new episode of The Hills as a special, Sunday-night lead-in for the VMAs. Hella weak.

Even worse, though? Plugging the VMAs with a gigantic banner that took up half the screen. And since half The Hills takes place in clubs - necessitating subtitles for the conversations - that banner made them unreadable. Nice work, assclowns.

Lastly, the network spent the entire week promoting an exciting fight that landed Brody Jenner in jail, with Doug Reinhardt in tow. This, of course, was only discussed in the last 12 seconds. Wait 'til next episode again, we suppose!

Eat ass, MTV.

Anyway, from what we could discern, Lauren Conrad and Co. headed to the City of Sin for Frankie Delgado's birthday. For whatever reason, that turned into one huge drama-fest as Brody rode Stephanie Pratt hard the entire time.

We don't mean that in a sexual way. Heavens no. He was just bashing her over and over again for being shady. Brody Jenner either has a huge grudge for some reason, or was prompted by the producers to harp on this. Or both.

At dinner, Stephane Pratt finally confronted Brody Jenner to try to figure out why he told Lauren Conrad not to be friends with her.

On last night's episode of The Hills, Lauren Conrad started to think things with Doug Reinhardt is fizzling out. We saw that coming big time.

Not because of the show. Just because in real life, Lauren Conrad and Doug Reinhardt were inseparable for like three weeks, then he went MIA.

Whitney Port gives her good advice: if she's not feelin' it, it's better to get out early. Speaking of Whitney, she's got some romance of her own!

Ms. Port heads to New York City to meet up with Kelly Cutrone at the east coast People's Revolution office. There she meets a model named Alex!

At dinner, Spencer Pratt tells Heidi Montag that he will never be close with his sister again. Man, he is as schmoozy and sleazy as ever these days.

When Heidi says that she misses Stephanie Pratt, Spencer tells her that if she plans on rekindling a friendship with Steph, don't come home. LOL

Last night's The Hills was the end of the road for Doug Reinhardt.

Lauren Conrad and Brody Jenner have dinner and he warns her yet again about Stephanie Pratt. LC confides that Doug is boring and gonna get dumped.

In New York, Whitney Port meets up with Alex after Kelly seemingly set this up for her, arranging a group get-together and then bailing last-second.

Things go well and the two decide to extend the evening with a little walk around New York. The night doesn't end with a kiss but they do promise to meet again. Could a Whitney Port romance - or spin-off -be in the works?

Back in L.A., Stephanie brings a peace offering to Spencer Pratt to try to repair their broken relationship. It's a book he wanted, and he accepts Steph's gift - but takes a parting shot at her about LC just the same. What a d!ck.

As the episode concludes, Lauren Conrad drives over to break things off with Doug Reinhardt. He gets defensive and doesn't seem to understand why she doesn't want to make it work. But in the end, he takes it pretty well.

Or, as Lauren Conrad says of Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, in a line not at all fed to her by executive producer Adam DiVello, "I don't know if it follows them as much as they chase it." So profound, LC. So profound.

On the second episode of The Hills' 4th season, Stephanie Pratt invites Lauren Conrad to her birthday party. That sounds well and good, until we learn Spencer and Heidi are gonna roll, too. Great ready for hectic drama!

Whitney Port saw this one coming big time. At work, she shows some concern when Lauren tells her that she’s going to Stephanie Pratt’s party, feeling that a run in with Heidi and Spencer is inevitable - and far from pretty.

On the career front, Whitney gets invited out to dinner with Kelly Cutrone and other People's Revolution peeps. She seems to be moving up in the company and getting more responsibility, which excites her but also nervous.

At Epic Records, Audrina Patridge vents to Chiara about Lo - who must have gone to a stylist right before they went out, because she looks flat-out ridic to us. Anyway, Audrina and Lo vow to try to make nice at the party.

They don't really succeed.

It was a Pratt family feud last night on The Hills.

At first, Spencer Pratt didn't even want to show his ugly mug at Stephanie's b-day party. Unfortunately for us, Heidi talks into into it, telling him not to let LC ruin his relationship with a family member. Spencer agrees, but only reluctantly.

Lauren and Lo arrived at Steph's party first, with Audrina Patridge, Frankie Delgado, Brody Jenner and Doug Reinhardt showing up a little later.

Follow the jump to continue our Hills recap, it's just begun ...

... and perhaps something more? Maybe, but not in the clip below.

A week after Lo and Audrina's showdown, Lauren Conrad opens up to beau Doug Reinhardt about the aftermath on tonight's episode of The Hills.

Lauren Conrad Covers Lucky

"It was kind of a disaster," she tells him over lunch.

Doug Reinhardt lets her remarks sink in for a moment and then responds: "Everything, everybody in your life is hectic... Let's go do somethin.'"

How can you not love a man like that?

Later in the conversation, Lauren Conrad invites Doug to a birthday party for Stephanie Pratt that weekend. We all know that won't end well.

Check out the preview below, and be sure to tune in tonight at 10 ...

Before recapping last night's episode of The Hills - or whatever you call the 10 minutes of show surrounded by 20 minutes of ads - a quick note:

You suck, MTV.

We realize ads pay for the entertainment, and that you want to milk every cent out of your one hit show. But eight straight minutes? Jackasses.

Anyway.

Before 12 Taco Bell ads destroyed our love for it, the fourth season of The Hills started off great. It began at work with Whitney and Lauren.

Lauren is clearly preoccupied about her hot date with Doug Reinhardt later that night. She tells Whitney Port all about it. Giggling ensues.

LC's somewhat-estranged roommate, Audrina Patridge, reveals her weekend plans to amusingly-named Chiara, her co-worker at Epic Records.

Turns out Lauren Conrad is throwing her a birthday bash at the house. Should be a lot of fun, right? Well, Chiara is worried - and not at all prompted by the producers to say so - that tension between Audrina and Lo will ruin it. 

Meanwhile, on The Hills 2.0, a.k.a. SpeidiLand, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are living together again, but little does he know she has told Holly Montag, her sister from Colorado, that she can stay with them for a bit.

When he finds out, Spencer Pratt immediately wants rid of Holly and acts like a total d!ck, rejecting the nice breakfast she made and everything.

He sleeps until noon, then promptly goes back to bed. Apparently man has quite a flexible schedule. No discernible employment will allow that.

A new guy is (or at least was, when this was filmed) rocking Lauren Conrad’s love life, as shown on tonight’s season premiere of The Hills.

In the sneak preview below, Lauren Conrad preps for a date with mediocre baseball player - and Laguna Beach native - Doug Reinhardt.

Her Latest Purchases

Before departing, LC also chides BFF Lauren "Lo" Bosworth and her quasi-feud with their third roommate (and wheel), Audrina Patridge.

Audrina Patridge cheating on Justin-Bobby.

Whitney Port blushing and giggly over a boy.

Romance at its Best

Spencer and Heidi hating on their respective siblings.

Brody Jenner and Doug Reinhardt getting thrown in jail.

And that's just in the two-minute trailer for The Hills!

Seriously, this Season Four preview alone is a theatrical masterpiece. It's as if it's a movie, only the actors don't know they're in it ... or are at least really good at pretending there aren't 12 cameras following them to Les Deux.

Whether you're an unabashed fan of Lauren Conrad and The Hills or say you're not, but you still can't turn off MTV's guilty-pleasure phenomenon, watch the following trailer in awe and count down the days until Monday, August 18:

Looks like Lauren Conrad may have even more BFF drama in the upcoming fourth season of The Hills, which premieres August 18.

Frenemy du jour: Stephanie Pratt.

Pimp and Ho

In a new trailer, Lauren Conrad confronts Stephanie about going on a date with her handsome new baseball player beau, Doug Reinhardt.

Meanwhile, Lo Bosworth and Audrina Patridge confront their own drama, and Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are — wait for it — fighting.

This time, a stubborn Spencer Pratt says he's moving out of their apartment if Heidi's sister, Holly Montag, becomes their third roommate.

Here's a clip of some of the action to come. Follow this link to MTV for the official, expanded trailer of Season 4 (which we'll post ASAP).
