Why Do Jesse and Sid Fight?
Jesse and Sid argue because the former is trying to persuade the latter that Meredith is manipulating him. Sid had spent enough time with Meredith to know that she never loved him fully or completely.
He succeeds in seeing through her pretend of her actual nature, which is further revealed to Sid when Meredith spreads the lie that he took Jesse back.
Sid tries to persuade Jesse of this, but the latter’s love for the musician stands in the way of the truth. Jesse dismisses Sid’s statements, believing they are motivated by the latter’s disdain for his fiancée rather than by the truth.
Jesse, enraged, prepares to leave for Meredith’s tour without saying goodbye to his best friend Sid. He may soon understand that Sid has been telling the truth all along when Meredith portrays herself as a sympathetic person who has reconciled with her ex-boyfriend.
Her fixation with her fame and deceit may finally suffocate Jesse and convince him that Meredith never loved him, proving Sid correct and paving the path for the two best friends to reconnect.
