S is walking down the street when her phone rings, and after quick breathing exercise, she pastes a fake smile on and answers. "Hey, Georgie! It was good to see you last night. When did you say you were going back to Belgium?" The breeziness of an old friend who enjoyed catching up, and will now be returning to previously established continuity. The girl she chooses to be. "Um, Switzerland, actually. And I'm supposed to leave tomorrow, but I'm not going until I get a chance to make it up to you first." Serena lies, and rolls her eyes at herself as she's doing it: "Oh, nothing to make up! I had fun." G is self-effacing and epiphanic: "Until after you left, I don't think I really heard what you were saying. I didn't get it. You've really changed." S agrees with that. "I don't mean to sound corny, But... It's a real inspiration to me." Serena's as surprised as we are, but I don't think G's lying. I think G's got two girls inside her, too, so what was at first a dark mirror and temptation gets more interesting: Georgina is what happens if you can't come up with New Serena, if you don't have the strength and wisdom enough to really make the jump. Which makes her scarier as a story element, and much more desperate as a character, and much trickier to deal with. I think in order to get G, we're going to have to agree that everything she ever says is true. Maybe not the whole truth, but the truth of at least one of the girls she can be.
