"Especially if you think they're lying to you," Lily says, and there's a Gossip Girl glint in her eye when she starts getting into it: "Was she?" He nods: "Right to my face." He brings up Serena's phase of going crazy, and Lily says -- and I think the actress is at odds with how to say the line, because it's a pretty shitty thing to put in a beautiful woman's mouth, if she's over forty, and not hugely in character for Lily either -- "...If Serena's indiscretions were as PG as Jenny's, I wouldn't have needed the Botox."
Rufus whines that Dan was so much easier, which you know he was, like, all he wanted to do was play sick and stay home from school all the time and sleep beside his parents until he was twelve. I wasn't terribly impressed by the unnecessary retcons of the "L'il Newport" story on The O.C., but every week I get a little more impatient to meet Baby Dan. He just seems like the coolest little kid. "Raising girls is different. Serena would be a horrible monster for a hundred days... And then on the hundred and first, she'd be my little girl again." (If this show had a timeline that wasn't out of Escher's portfolio, wouldn't it be cool if tonight was the 101st? That would be cool, but it doesn't fit, because Jenny entered the game officially between "Dare Devil" and "The Handmaiden's Tale", which were set in September, and now it's Marchish, given the weather and the date of Lily's wedding. Still. Wait, it's probably been three months since "Thin Line," which is when Jenny really started becoming empowered to be a bitch, right?) Anyway, sorry. It just seems like they're trying a little harder post-strike to make sense on this stuff -- not that I need them to, I love the magic of UES time and space -- but I want to give them credit. Lily drinks her drink and tells him to trust that he's done his job: "She'll come back to you." Even Serena did, after all, and Eric is the most well-adjusted person on the show, now that he's not trying to kill himself anymore. So she can be trusted.
