Welcome back to the Upper East Side after a one-week break. It was a classic show with zingy lines, lots of scheming and OMG moments.
The show opened with a dream. Blair was Audrey Hepburn’s character in Wait Until Dark. A dark shadowy figure attacked her and when trying to defend herself on the ground, Blair grabbed the attacker’s hair and pulled out… long blond extensions. Hilarious. She woke up and knew that someone was back in town even though Blair had banned her. So Blair went over to the UES Humphrey penthouse and confronted Jenny. J was back but only because she got an interview with Tim Gunn to attend fashion design school Parson’s. J looked a little bit chipmunk-cheeked, slouchy and smoky voiced. She told B that she would leave Manhattan after her meeting. B told her that if she found out J went anywhere else she would pay. Blair had her minions with head minion Penelope stake out the penthouse and report to her if J left. Meanwhile Chuck dropped by the Humphrey’s to “tell Jenny he was sorry,” but really was there to steal her portfolio. He called J (while wearing a smarmy silk robe and picking out scents?) to tell her he “accidentally” took it and that he left it at the Empire’s front desk. J was pissed but ran out and got into a cab. The minions called Blair at a spa and she got so upset her cucumbers fell off her face. At the meeting with Tim Gunn, J’s designs had the letters “W.H.O.R.E” painted on them and TG told J to leave. Chuck called Dan to invite them both to the NYC Bachelor Awards where J would have a second chance with Tim Gunn.
Serena didn’t sleep in her bed last night because she had been with Colin. But on her way into her new business class she bumped into Colin and it turned out he was her professor. She decided to stop seeing him and her mom was proud of her. But Colin convinced her to still date him and take the class next semester. He invited her to his “Biggest Bachelor in NYC” award acceptance party that night. So she decided to still see him. At the party, Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kirschner gave the award to Colin. Lily got annoyed at Serena because she was wearing her shirt backwards she lied to her. So Lil gave Serena some reverse psychology that she learned from Colin’s book to try to make Serena take school seriously. Serena also needs to wear better outfits; seriously the shirt highlighted her boobs but looked super ugly.
Also at the Bachelor Awards party: Jenny apologized to Tim Gunn and he told her he would give her a second chance. Jenny was tired of no one knowing why Blair banned her from Manhattan so she alerted Gossip Girl who sent out a blast with the 411. Both Blair and Chuck were aghast. Chuck went over to Blair’s house later to call a truce with her but when they shook hands she pulled away and closed her door.
Juliet dissed Nate after their sleep over because she had to run to class. But he saw her outside the prison where his dad was just transferred. He asked her if she was really seeing her brother but she lied and said she held a reading group for the prisoners. Later Ben called her asking why she didn’t see him, She told him about Nate’s dad being there. So Ben found out who Mr. Archibald was and beat him up. She called Nate to tell him the truth but got interrupted by Colin. She was at his place to get a check from him. They toasted their plan which wasn’t revealed but obviously they’re in cahoots to take down Serena…
Next episode: “War at the Roses“ It’s Blair’s b-day and she gets a surprise at her party.
