Fans are convinced 'The Kardashians' faked this emotional scene in the season finale

Was 'The Kardashians' scripted or did that super-serious scene actually happen?

Super sleuths are getting suspicious: was The Kardashians scripted...particularly that family meeting? 

During the season 1 finale, we couldn't help but ask "Are Khloe and Tristan still together?" after the eruption of yet another cheating scandal. The rest of the Kardash clan seemingly wondered the same thing, which is why they decided to hold a get-together to get their facts straight. 

"When there's some serious family drama going on, we always have a family meeting, and we all lean on each other for support. That's what we're here for," Kim states in a confessional.

However, eagle-eyed viewers suspect that the chat—which included Kourt, Kim, Kris and Corey—was not genuine. 

Family meeting: was 'The Kardashians' scripted?

The internet detectives are calling out a few faux pas: one Reddit user insists that the timeline isn't adding up, as the news about the paternity scandal came to light during the holidays, but the scene itself was filmed in January. 

The giveaway? Kourt's outfit and manicure. Some believe that her black ensemble and chrome nails indicate that the timing is off, but it is possible that she just opted for the same outfit twice—not a foreign concept.

Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker's emo looks aside, the meeting—scripted or not, we still cannot confirm—did not go according to plan. Koko had decided that it was in her best interest to sit this get-together out.

"I would prefer to be alone than to be around people and it wasn't a time for me to have some family meeting where I needed to hear everyone's opinions and thoughts about my own life," she states in a confessional.

It's safe to say Tristan is out of chances, and it doesn't seem like anyone is willing to cut him any more slack. Time will tell how their co-parenting relationship will unfold, and fans are eager to see what's next romantically for the Good American founder.

Speaking of which: "When is season 2 of The Kardashians," you ask? We have the intel.
