The big KUWTK reunion special is this week and fans are wondering, "What does Kourtney need from Scott?" For 20 seasons, followers of the E! reality sensation Keeping Up With the Kardashians have witnessed the rollercoaster romance unfold between Kourtney Kardashian and ex Scott Disick. 

Now that the series is coming to an end—and the two have seemingly moved on with new love interests—many are left wondering about what could've been. Is there something Kourt needs that would give her a happy ending with Scott (and not current beau, Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker)? Let's find out.

What does Kourtney need from Scott?

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians reunion, which will be hosted by Bravo's Andy Cohen, airs on E! at 8pm on Thursday, June 17th, and Sunday, June 20th at 9pm. (It's a two-parter, so you know there'll be drama.) During the trailer for the special, we witness a wide variety of topics arise, one of which being the relationship between Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick. 

First thing's first: Kourtney's sisters were not terribly pleased that she became hush-hush in the show's final seasons about her relationships. Though fans caught glimpses of Kourt and Scott amicably co-parenting, it seemed the eldest Kardashian daughter was holding back. And instigator extraordinaire, Kim Kardashian, would always push to see if there would somehow be a happily-ever-after for her older sis and the father of her children. What was the reason for her reticent approach?

Andy Cohen, of course, needed to uncover the reason for the trepidation. 

In a short snippet from the reunion special, where Scott is also sitting down for the interview as well, we hear Andy ask Kourtney: "Do you think your relationship might have turned out differently if you hadn't shared so much of it?"

She replies: "Probably, but I think the substance abuse was the deal-breaker," in reference to Scott's issues with drinking. Disick, without hesitation, agreed. 

Could solving their struggles together off-camera be what Kourtney needed all along? Did this overwhelming pressure to share every aspect of their relationship break it? Could Scott's admission of his past behaviors be the way to move forward?

And—in a seemingly opposite theory entirely—perhaps what Kourt needs from Scott right now is simply acceptance. Earlier in the year, she moved on with rocker Travis Barker, and a slew of steamy Instagram snaps of their romantic escapades followed. Could Kourtney simply want Scott to be in support of the new man in her life? 

In a reunion clip, Cohen is seen asking Disick: "So do Kourtney and Travis have your blessing?" 

Of course, we're not given the answer in the teaser, but from the looks of Scott's face, he seems to slightly struggle with the question. Although there has been plenty of emphases made on Kourtney's dating life, fans also aren't shying away from Scott's. Most recently, he has been linked to Amelia Hamlin, who is 18 years his junior—something that has caused much scrutiny in the tabloids. 

Whatever Kourtney needs from Scott and vice versa, fans want what's best for the couple and their three children: Mason, Penelope, and Reign. Whatever the future has in store, fingers crossed that it all works out well.
