After hours of cleaning and re-organizing their respective bedrooms, The Clique's Christmas loot has finally been put away. When Alicia IMs Massie to announce that her fourteen year-old cousin Nina has come back to live with them after the Rivera's Christmas visit to Spain and spend the spring semester at OCD, Massie rolls her eyes. She's seen dozens of pictures of Nina over the years and dismisses her as an LBR (Loser Beyond Repair). Alicia is planning a "welcome to Westchester" party and will be inviting everyone, even the Briarwood boys. Massie is thankful that Nina is two years older than she is, as this means their paths will rarely cross. Thank Gawd! Being seen with a dorky foreign exchange student can be popularity prison. Meanwhile, Kristen IMs that she got a terrible boy haircut at the mall over break and everyone thinks she's a guy. She is dreading this semester. Dylan says she gained three pounds in Tonga because the only thing to eat on the remote island was French fries. She's hoping the cold she caught on the plane ride back will help her lose the weight. Then one by one, The Clique asks Massie how Claire took the big news. How did she react when she found out her family is moving to Chicago??
