In the elevator Nate's still processing Jenny's attack on his face, and she kind of walks him through how it's not a big deal, with even more teen-girl eye-rolling than usual, and Nate's just kind of horrified by both versions of her right now, and so just to plunk it down and pull the classic Jenny move -- erasing whatever dipshit thing she just did in favor of pretending everything is okay -- she's like, "Look, at least I can have fun again after not getting raped!" Nate begins to wonder if maybe Jenny is a psycho, but the idea that anybody would play creepy internal brain-games like that is so repugnant that he just files it in the Hudson Hero file where like the 90% of all human behavior that blows Nate's mind is inevitably filed. That, or he creates a sad narrative that may be closer to the truth in which Jenny's ongoing issues with sex are creating mad acting-out and she's going to end up on the pole. Which just the idea of scary creepy Gothic Little J doing a striptease is sort of a mind-flaying concept, but just weird enough that I hope we see it one day.
Eric is none too impressed when Jenny, for the fifth time today, strolls in with Nate on her arm and once again addresses the world at large with her winning stack of deaths. S, on the other hand, can't wait to be all sweetie-pie and embrace Jenny before running over to Nate and palling around. Eric watches this whole interplay and I think honestly wonders if Jenny got what she was going after, which if true would put him right in the middle of two hurricanes that always freak him out.
Blair comes home to Chuck with shoulder pads overwhelming her delicate frame, and Chuck seems surprised that she wrapped up her foray into prostitution so quickly. Her face would seem to suggest that, or something worse, has happened, so he sets up all his little domino lies and self-justifications and just starts firing them off robotically without even considering if they fit the context of the conversation that's actually occurring. B straight up asks if he really sold her out, and Chuck says she is the betrayer because she's the one coming home from the Empire.
Which, her intention was to go through with it, so he's not wrong about that tiny fact, but it's really immaterial. Blair reminds him that, just like with the boy-kissing, she would have done anything if he just asked her to, including I guess Jack, which would be weird if we were talking about any other human beings but here seems probable. Chuck tries to explain his mental alibi about this, which is that if she were in on the plan, then they'd all be in on the plan and Jack wouldn't feel like a winner, and the deal wouldn't go through. Blair is disgusted, because that is disgusting, but also because she likes to be in on the scheme and not a pawn. If your whole life is chess, then there's nothing worse than getting played: And in that case, this is actually worse than the prostitution part.
