He brought her a hangover cure, which is an electrolyte drink infused with fruits and vegetables. She turns her nose up at it, but he assures her she’ll feel like a new person. After she finishes it, he apologizes for the previous night. He says if they did have sex, it would have been for all the wrong reasons. Chanel, in turn, apologizes for sleeping with his girlfriend. She was just so hurt over Johnny, she didn’t think about Tripp at all. She’s so sorry. Tripp points out Allie is the one who cheated on him, but thanks her for saying that.
