Simon finally shows up to Farrah’s hotel, and she’s clearly excited for him to be there. She asks him if he looks at her like everyone else does and he admits, “I feel like if I get a girl who gets attention, then I’m doing something right.” The pair then get ready to head to the toga party where Farrah has no problem flaunting Simon off, which he seems to love way too much.
Back at their hotel room, Farrah asks if Simon in comfortable meeting her mom, which he agrees to. When they arrive in LA and meet Deborah, it goes better than expected.

They are old enough to give their daughter Nova a great life. She also admits that she doesn’t want Nova to feel like a replacement child. “She’s her own person, and we want her to feel like she’s her own person.” But she also hopes maybe one day Carly and Nova can be close, because they are 100% full sisters.

Her cousin Krystal seems to agree that the pair are moving fast, and tells Amber she’s worried. She makes it obvious by all the looks of disgust she gives Amber. But clearly, Amber knows what she wants and brushes it off.
Towards the end of the episode Amber and Matt head to a diner where they ate together for the very first time. “This was technically our first date,” Matt tells her. “And if you think about it, a lot has happened here. Turns out, the first time Amber told him she loved him, they were sitting in the very booth they’re sitting in now. He then does something we didn’t see coming, he tells Amber, “We’ve done a lot of messed up s–t in our lives… I would really like to do something right for once and… I want you to marry me.” Holy cow, he just went there!
Amber seems shocks and tries to laugh it off, but then kisses him to seal the deal. The couple decide to go to Vegas at the end of the month. Everything is moving so fast! Even Amber’s brother doesn’t agree with how quick everything is going. He’s afraid she doesn’t know that much about him. He clearly tells her, “don’t do it.”
