English term or phrase: walked him through
"After he arrived, we settled down in the living room, and I walked him through my Friday night run-in with Fripp."

Ela está se referindo a um altercação com esse senhor (Fripp). Como é difícil traduzir algumas expressões com "through". Entende-se a ideia, mas faltam as palavras para expressá-la de uma forma concisa e clara. No momento é isto que tenho como tradução provisória:

"Depois que ele chegou, nos acomodamos na sala de estar, e eu lhe contei, do começo ao fim, sobre a minha altercação de sexta-feira à noite com Fripp."
