Dan runs off to "do something" for Rufus -- which he honestly thinks of the polo match as being, because he's the exact same D-Hump he's always been and also, nobody in the universe actually enjoys polo -- and V asks if she can walk him to the subway, and he says no, because he's on the 6, just like Jenny from the Block, for whom legitimacy one remembers is "like breathing." Vanessa stands up in, oh, some hotpants painted in some kind of neon Navajo design, and the waitress brings her some sunglasses, and I thought for a second that Vanessa said, "These are my friends!" but in fact of course she says, "These are my friend's," and runs out with her hair finally looking good for one second to see Dan getting into a limousine, and whatever was left of her sense of decency and does a Brooklyn thing of its own, if you know what I mean, right in her Cheerios.
Dear Vanya calls up to alert Rufus to the fact that "the camera people" are going through the Humphrey-van der Bass garbage, and as he wonders about this sudden uptick of interest in Serena, the kids show up and blow her spot, such as it is. Under Rufus's hooded swear they are mumblers and it doesn't take long before they spill the beans, such as they are.
When Chuck gets home, Blair's there like a cocker spaniel, wiggling and suspicious. He tells her he was with Nate, and she giggles at herself. He suggests "a little go-see at a modeling agency downtown," where they can pick out their next victim/fake-threesome, and they test each other carefully. She swallows, he smiles delightfully and once again offers to just stay home. Thinking it's some new kind of trick, she laughs lightly and stalks off to get her purse. They are both disappointed and afraid.
Rufus pores through the pile of magazines that contain all of Serena's misdeeds -- going topless on Valentino's yacht, dancing on tables in Barcelona, body shots with Prince Harry -- and Rufus points out that there's a guy in lots of them that you can't really make out. Not even Dan recognizes him, despite having had numerous experiences with him, but we know from last season that she spent this time abroad with Carter Baizen, who will now appear in the next scene to answer Rufus's question.
