Serena cocks an eyebrow and very subtly asks about the Elliott situation, finally realizing that she knows nothing about Eric currently and he very well could be doing unspeakables with Damien if he's going to be keeping secrets like whether or not his inappropriate sleepovers are still going on. Even though Jonathan already knows that Eric was keeping the breakup a secret -- that in fact this very secret is the reason they got back together for this date -- somehow now is the time for him to throw up his hands in defeat and compare Eric to Jenny Humphrey and run off down the street once again covered in Pinkberry.
Dan tries to get Blair to admit she sandbagged Jay McInerney, but since she didn't he just comes off looking even more weird and judgey than usual. Once Jay shows up -- talking mad asshole language -- Blair figures it out. Epperly takes them to the bar and leave Blair to complain to a passing server, "OMG, I was just poleaxed by a poor person!" The server is, of course, totally sympathetic and doesn't even punch her in the nuts.
Raina introduces Chuck to Stuart Fuji, "He's in the film business" she says, which I think might be a great joke if it means what I think it means, and then Chuck hustles her away from him so he can apologize for not trusting her. How many times do we cover the fact that Raina always tells the truth? Well, in this particular scene, three times. If this were a drinking game you'd be dead now. Chuck, though, sort of turns it around into awesome: "Raina, you're trying to take my company. How can I just trust you? You'd think less of me if I did!" He's right, but she still plays it all, "I couldn't think less of you than I do right now," so he explains further that it's the Bart Bass of it all making him act crazy, and she's like, "Still, you insulted me. Because I always tell the truth, and I never lie."
Ben finally locates Eric, who is downstairs in the foyer being suspicious with Damien. Damien works the angle by caressing Eric's face and getting territorial with his hair and generally being sketch and totally hot all at the same time, and runs off to get Eric, whom he calls "Babe," a drink. Chills everywhere on everybody. Even Serena is impressed: "Uh... So you're Damien's Babe now?" Yeah, have you met Damien Dalgaard? It's the most realistic thing that ever happened. Don't question it. The fact that it's a ruse -- which I still refuse to completely believe -- is the only thing that makes more sense than it being a reality.
