"This just in: Asher Hornsby spotted locking lips before class... but not with his girlfriend. Looks like gentlemen don't prefer blondes, Little J... They prefer other gentlemen."
Nelly Yuki, Elise and Hazel walk through the halls, reading, Jenny taking up the rear. Nobody really believes it, but it's still pretty scandalous of GG: "Now you know how Vanessa Hudgens feels," snorts Hazel. (Which made me laugh especially hard because the moment I realized that when Connor Paolo was awesome was at the beginning of the season when he offered to punch Zac Efron.) Jenny shifts even further to the back, behind Penelope and Iz; everybody's still reading.
"Is this just another round of blanks fired between B and Little J? I'm tired of being the bearer of bad grudges. This is the last item that goes to press without proof."
Isabel is relieved that Gossip Girl "finally got her balls back," and Penelope excellently agrees: "Yeah, she was totally turning into the new Page Six." Blair comes shooting around the corner, toward her next class, and Jenny hisses, "Low blow." B does not even slow down: "Wasn't me. Wish it was!" Awesome. Jenny keeps her head down, exasperated, and follows after the crowd.
Out in the courtyard, Serena gets another package from G, and tells the concierge to hold onto it, freaking out -- so of course Dan appears from nowhere and asks what's up, so she can shiver and act weird and squirrelly and take off, tossing a hello to B over her shoulder. B presents herself to Dan thus: "Dan Humphrey, just who I hate to admit I was looking for. You're dirty!" He is weirded out, and asks what she's on about. "Cheating, drinking, drugs, it's all fair game, but outing your sister's boyfriend is dark. How did squeaky-clean Humphrey even come up with that?" I love Blair, she's the only person who pays as much attention to this show as I do, so of course she knew that S told him to out Asher on Gossip Girl in their last scene. He sighs that he wasn't making anything up, so Blair pounces on him, shining brighter than a Christmas tree.
"Yeah, I... I might have seen Asher kissing another guy." She almost loses her cool -- almost -- as she delights in it, and asks for details, but Dan doesn't really have any because Asher's big sexy head was in the way. "What does that even matter?" he asks, and B just shakes her head, rendering the question irrelevant: "Right now Gossip Girl's credibility is the same as Tinsley Mortimer's after a few martinis, but if I can prove that his duplicity is more than just a rumor, then they'll break up. That's what you want, isn't it?"
