'KUWTK': Kim Kardashian Makes Peace With Tristan Thompson After He Blocks Her On Instagram

Kim Kardashian-West is all about moving on with life.

On Sunday's new Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kim was still pretty riled up about Tristan Thompson's cheating scandal, and her anger escalated when the NBA blocked her on Instagram at the start of the episode.

It soon became clear that Kim's anger was driving a wedge between her and her sister, Khloe Kardashian, who was already trying to work things out with Tristan following the birth of their baby girl, True.

Kim's rage only served to make these attempts at reconciliation even harder, and because of that the sisters found themselves at a point of semi-estrangement, and a confrontation between Kim and Tristan seemed inevitable.

Their face-to-face finally came to the end of the episode, when Kim paid Khloe to visit her home, where Tristan was lounging in the sizable home theater room. Kim was excused from her conversation with her younger sister to have a chat with Tristan, and Khloe was instantly filled with unease.

"With Kim going to see Tristan, obviously my heart is racing," Khloe told the KUWTK cameras in a solo interview. "I have a ton of anxiety. I do not want them fighting in the house."

However, awkward fighting seemed inevitable.

"Where's my beast?" Kim said facetiously as she walked into the room, where Tristan was clearly uncomfortable reclining.

As Kim talked with Tristan in the home theater room, Khloe got one of the KUWTK The Kim was still wearing and their dialogue was not exactly what Khloe expected.

The first question out of Kim's mouth was whether or not Tristan knew how to play pickleball – a sport that combines elements of ping pong and tennis. Tristan, who was obviously not expecting to be the beginning of the conversation, said he had not, and a beaming Kim gleefully explained the rules while an eavesdropping of Khloe listened in, utterly baffled.

"I have no idea how to even start a conversation with Tristan, and pickleball was the first thing that popped into my head," Kim said in a solo interview. "It was super awkward, but it's an athlete so I thought maybe talking about sports would be common ground."

Kim went on to explain that she loves skiing, and the pair bonded over her love for winter sports. Eventually, Kim challenged Tristan to a game of pickleball before laughingly leaving the room, never actually addressing the cheating scandal, or him blocking her on Instagram.

"I realized, why am I fighting this fight if no one else is?" Kim explained. "I'm not going to spend my time being angry at somebody else for something that they did not do to me, I'm gonna move on and if that's what Khloe chooses to do, I'll be supportive of her . "

All it took, it seems, for Kim to make peace with Tristan was for her to finally decide to do so, and it seems that she's much happier having healed their relationship, to a degree.

The show even played a short clip from a video Kim shared her Instagram story in June, where she convinced Tristan to unblock her while filming him.

"My relationship with Tristan is a work in progress. But it's just really important to move forward," Kim shared. "We're such a close family, we're one big family, and you just have to move on and get over it."

The episode ended on a hopeful, a positive note that seemed to be a really good head on this aspect of the "Tristan Scandal" storyline, as Kim, her sisters, some friends and their kids all played around in the pool in Khloe's Backyard.

"Being here, swimming, hang out with my kids, this is my dream, that's what I love to do," Kim said. "I mean, even having Tristan here, we're all together, it's so much fun, and that's what life is all about."

Keeping Up With The Kardashians airs Sunday at 9 p.m. ET / PT on E !.
