‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ Recap: Scott Disick Gets Emotional During Surprise Visit To Kourtney And Family
The sixth episode of Season 11, titled “Return From Paradise,” picked up where the last episode left off, with all of the Kardashian women on vacation in St. Barts.
While on a boat, Kendall complained to Khloe about Kylie ignoring the family and spending the entire vacation with Tyga. Kylie rode a flyboard with Tyga, even though she Kendall had planned to do it together. “It’s so annoying because I literally waited for Kylie for 30 minutes to do the fly thing.” Kendall told Khloe. Kendall further said in a confessional, “It’s kind of annoying because I was really looking forward to being with Kylie on this trip.”
Kris had a heart-to-heart with her Kourtney about the current state of her love life, saying to her daughter, “I’m just telling you, keep an open mind. It would be kind of cool if you ever went on a date.” But Kourtney replied, “I’m like, not a dating person. I did the dating thing before Scott for like a minute, and it was so not for me.”
In an on-camera confessional, Kourtney further explained, “I just got out of a nine-year relationship. I think the last thing I probably need is anybody in my life.” But Kris further pressed her daughter about the possibility of having new romance, asking, “Do you see yourself with anyone else at some point?” Hesitant to discuss the topic, Kourtney simply said, “I don’t know.” Kris went on to ask her Kourtney if she “can’t wait to meet the one,” to which she replied “not really.” And finally, Jenner asked her daughter if she believes Disick is still “the one,” to which Kourtney simply replied, “I don’t know,” but added, “I did.”
Later, Kris pulled Kylie aside and told her to try and spend more time with Kendall during the vacation, to which Kylie responded, “She’s so f-ing annoying.” The situation got even more uncomfortable when Kendall walked over, resulting in Kylie walking away. Kris and Kendall then began to discuss why Kylie was acting so “cranky,” but she overheard them, and yelled back, “Can you go somewhere else and talk about me?”
Kylie went to Kendall’s room to try and discuss the tension between them, but things got even more heated when Kendall said, “I was looking forward to this trip to hang out with you,” adding that she was “disappointed” Tyga came along. “That’s kind of mean,” Kylie responded, but Kendall clarified she likes Tyga, but was expecting a family getaway. The two, however, did settle their differences and Kylie told her, “We should have sister time.” She added in a confessional, “I feel bad that Kendall’s hurt because I didn’t mean for it to be that way. I’m gonna make an effort to hang out with her more.” Kylie then told her sister, “I’m sorry Kendall,” and the two kissed and made up.
Later at dinner, Kourtney told her mom and sisters that people kept sending her photos of Disick partying and hanging out with other women, and she “wished people would stop bothering me with information, unless it’s an emergency.” Kris asked if she should text Disick and ask him what’s going on, but Kourtney advised against it.
The next day, the family departed St. Barts and flew back to Los Angeles. Kourtney, Kim and Khloe were all gathered at Kris’s house when Disick unexpectedly showed up. Disick suggested he sit down with everybody to talk because he hadn’t see them all in months. He told them, “It’s so hard seeing my children on a trip… That was the first trip I’ve never been on with my kids.” But Khloe replied, “You made that choice,” to which he responded, “I realize I’m in the wrong… I’m not here to make excuses.”
Khloe said to Disick, “This is the stuff that I don’t understand. You say, ‘Oh I don’t have a family and I don’t have all these things.’ Then we give you one. Why do you, like, destroy it?” Disick responded, “I’m sure you guys have heard a lot of horrible things about me that I should’ve just been honest with, but I was too ashamed that I was going to hurt everybody in this family and not just her. And I’ve apologized to Kourtney a hundred times, but I’ve never apologized to like all of you for letting all of you down and embarrassing you guys.”
Disick continued, “I understand I need to help myself way before I can help her or my kids or whatever. But it’s just been a really hard time, going from having all of you guys to having nobody, you know?” Disick became choked up during his confession, and Kourtney began wiping away tears as well. He then brought up his addiction issues, and admitted, “I’m just so ashamed that I publicly embarrassed all of you.” Kris assured Disick that people make mistakes, and didn’t want him to feel “abandoned” by the family.
Disick continued crying and said, “I’ve never been this unhappy in my life. It’s just terrible. If I didn’t have those kids, I would kill myself. But I have them, and I’m gonna be here, and I’m gonna make it right for them.” Kris responded, “We all love you very much, but it breaks my heart to see [Kourtney] in pain… All we ever wanted for you guys is to be happy. But you have to make the decision that what you want is to be a partner and a dad.”
Disick told Kourtney, “I want to be able to be the man that you always wanted.” And as far as “partying,” he said, “It’s not the life I really want. I just wanted you guys to know that.” With that, Disick told all the girls he loved them, they said it back, and he walked out the door.
