Everyone except Jenny makes their return to Manhattan to help stir the pot in this episode of Gossip Girl.
Blair achieves her high-society aspirations by getting into Hamilton House – an exclusive Columbia U secret society club. Guess who else are members? Penelope – remember her as one of Blair’s HS minions? And Ella Juliet just to prove that Blair isn’t the only one scheming on the show. Juliet engineers it so Serena doesn’t get the key to be invited into HH. J then tries to manipulate Blair against Serena claiming that S is jealous and holding B back from greatness. This comes to head at a party where S + B stage a GG video-streamed fight. But it turns out to be fake and proves that you don’t mess with S + B. Then the two decide to become roomies because Dorota spent all day decorating S’s room with a bird motif.
Dan and Vanessa are playing family at the DUMBO loft even though they both know that baby Milo isn’t his biological kid. Georgina has skipped off to St. Barts but returns because she wants the baby. It turned out that the real father was married and his wife would’ve killed him or something if the baby was his. So G had to create a new father to appease the mad wife so she made Dan sign the paternity papers that she had switched the father’s name on. So G takes Milo away giving V and D freedom to still move in together and be the yuckiest couple ever.
Chuck is debuting French girlfriend Eva at a fashion party. She becomes insecure when Blair sees her trying on dresses for the party and tells E that Chuck will soon grow tired of her and throw her away. But Chuck tells E to have confidence in herself and not listen to that b.i.t.c.h. Blair. But at the party Rufus and Eric (who just had a chat about how Chuck attacked Jenny in the first season so now they both hate Chuck) interfere with Chuck’s happy introductions and throws Eva under the bus to save face. She’s about to leave in his limo but he catches her and apologizes. Lily was also at the party but her entire role this episode was to tell Charles that she loves him.
Juliet consoles herself by visiting her boyfriend in prison. Is this the mystery guy she was talking to on the phone before? And who is he anyway? He doesn’t really look familiar but he’s got stubble and wearing an orange jumpsuit so he wouldn’t be that recognizable anyway. It could’ve been Carter, all those bland white guys look the same…
Next episode: Nate confronts Juliet. Blair schemes about Chuck’s new life. And Dan is still torn between Vanessa and Serena.
