Just when you thought L.C. was over ‘The Hills,’ the true star came back for one last hurrah.

Even the most die-hard fans of The Hills knew the reality series was faker than Heidi Montag‘s boobs, but no one expected MTV to end the show’s six-season run by confirming that fact with a little wink-nod to the audience! As you may remember, the final scene — featured Brody Jenner and Kristin Cavallari‘s dramatic goodbye — ended with a slow zoom-out, revealing the entire show to have been filmed on a Hollywood set!

Now, more than three years later, MTV has aired an alternate ending to the series. So prepare to have your LC-loving mind blown.

‘The Hills’ Alternate Ending

Most of the episode, shown Aug. 9 as part of MTV’s “Retro MTV” block, was the same as it originally aired — except for the final minute.

After saying “goodbye” to Kristin, Brody returned to his condo to find — wait for it — Lauren Conrad!

Yes, good ol’ L.C. — who left the series after the fourth season — came back for one last hurrah. Brody tells her he was “just saying goodbye to a friend,” to which she replies, “It’s hard to say goodbye.”


All that was missing was L.C.’s trademark black mascara tear.
