S5E10 Something Old, Something New
"Something Old, Something New" is the tenth episode of the fifth season of The Hills. It originally aired on MTV on May 31, 2009. In the episode, Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt prepare for their upcoming wedding, while Lauren Conrad and Lo Bosworth move out of their house. After much deliberation, Conrad decides to attend the nuptials, where she reconciles with Montag after being estranged with one another since the third season. It is the final episode in which Conrad appears, and also marks the entrance of her replacement Kristin Cavallari. "Something Old, Something New" was produced by Adam DiVello, Liz Gateley, Kristofer Lindquist, Sara Mast, and Sean Travis. After the season was retroactively divided into Part I and Part II, respectively separating installments featuring Conrad and Cavallari, the episode became the conclusion of Part I. Additionally, it is the second episode in the series' history with a one-hour running time, the first being "Paris Changes Everything" in the third season. "Something Old, Something New" was met with generally mixed reviews from critics, who felt that Cavallari's introduction overshadowed Conrad's departure. According to Nielsen ratings, it was watched by 2.7 million viewers in its original airing. The episode was released on DVD on October 6, 2009, packaged with the remainder of Part I of the fifth season.
