This week on The City, Whitney Port went on another date with Freddie Fackelmayer, while Jay Lyon also wanted to know the status of their relationship.

Below, THG staff members pick apart the latest episode of the Whitney-centric Hills spinoff, awarding and deducting points as we see fit throughout …

In the opening moments, we learn that Whit basically booty-called Jay Lyon while he was back in town, then quit him for good. Hence the title. Plus 8.

Kelly says how she started her own company to promote things she believes in. Wow, now our interns are even less motivated to write this. Minus 2.

Olivia Palermo actually interacts with Roxy and Whitney this week! Amazing. It’s almost as if she has a reason for being on the show. Almost. Plus 4.

Freddie Fackelmayer invites his father, Fridolin, out to dinner with Whitney. Minus 2 for Fred’s faux pas, and Minus 1 more because Fridolin was so awk.

It takes Roxy Olin 12 seconds to realize Olivia is bad at her job and painful in general. She’s perceptive, but Minus 1 because we still had to tolerate Olivia.

This is off-topic, but Roxy was on Brothers & Sisters this week and wasn’t terrible. The fact that her parents are both on that show helps, but still, Plus 5.

Could MTV have set Whitney up with a lamer guy? Dude fake tans, bleaches his teeth, spends way too lonf on his hair and is not even interesting! Minus 10.

Samantha Swetra and Whitney debate if a dude can be a socialite. We don’t know the answer, but if so, Whitney’s fake boyfriend is so the epitome. Plus 2.

How long until Erin Kaplan goes postal on Olivia? Plus only 2, because they’re dragging it out and she’s too passive-aggressive, not aggressive-aggressive.

We never thought we’d say it, but we missed Jay Lyon. He’s not without fault, but at least the guy has personality. Too bad this was just a cameo. Minus 3.

TOTAL: +2. SEASON TOTAL: -15. Scores were boosted by Olivia’s integration into the rest of the show and the remergence of Jay and romantic tension.

It’s got a long way to go, but positive steps, City. Positive steps.
