A businesslike blonde (played by Alexandra Wentworth) paces in front of a group of Dean & Deluca employees, giving them instructions on how to fill out their employee evaluations. Felicity raises her hand and tells the blonde -- Abby -- that Javier already filled out employee evaluations for each of them. Abby brusquely says she knows that, but Javier's remarks (which were things like "a real cutie patootie") are hard to quantify. Abby's instructions are interrupted by a woman walking in and asking to use the phone. Phone Woman takes off her hooded jacket to reveal that she is none other than Hannah. Felicity calls out to her, and they say hello. Hannah is surprised to see Felicity working there. Abby interrupts their reunion, but Felicity ignores her. Felicity asks Hannah why she's in New York. Hannah says she's moved to New York to attend the conservatory. Is there only one in New York? Felicity asks if Noel knows, and Hannah says that she was planning on getting settled before telling him. Hannah asks how Noel's doing, and Felicity hesitantly replies, "He's doing great, actually." Hannah is glad. Felicity is not so glad to see Noel's ex-girlfriend.
Felicity marches down the hall and knocks on Noel's door. Noel answers the door while talking on the phone. Felicity thinks she has the big news about Hannah, but it turns out that Noel is already talking to Hannah on the phone. Noel makes plans to get together with Hannah that night, to Felicity's consternation. Noel is shocked that the girl he went out with for two years -- and whom he hasn't seen since Thanksgiving -- moved to New York two months ago and has been living five minutes away from him. Felicity is still upset about their evening plans. Felicity says that she only invited Hannah along because she was overcompensating to prove that she didn't have a problem with Hannah being there. Noel asks if she does have a problem with it. Felicity asks if she should have a problem. Noel asks if she does have a problem. I have a problem. It starts with N and it ends with -oel, and Felicity needs to break up with him so I can start recapping Felicity and Ben scenes soon. Felicity thinks that Noel seems nervous. Noel thinks that the whole situation is weird, but then tries to convince Felicity that it's not. Neither of them is convinced.
Elena and Felicity sit down to a meal in the cafeteria. Elena remembers that Felicity is hanging out with "[her] best friend, Hannah" tonight. Felicity says that she's fine with Hannah. Elena offers to hand in Felicity's proposal to McGrath for Felicity so that she can keep an eye on her man. I know Elena has trust issues because of Blair, but come on. Elena notices Simon Rex across the room, and comments that she'd like to keep an eye on him. Felicity admits that she knows him. Elena gets nervous because Simon Rex is coming over, and makes Felicity promise to introduce her. Simon arrives, and Felicity makes the introductions. He sits down and asks why Felicity hasn't been back to the studio. Felicity says that she's been drawing in her room. Simon says she left some of her sketches in the studio, and he stuck them in her drawer. She promises to stop by and get her sketches, and there are lots of awkward pauses, and then Simon Rex leaves. Elena tells Felicity she should go pick up the sketches and Felicity shoots her a look.
