"I couldn't help but notice you," sexy doorman Vanya says to Georgina's back; she puts down her drink deliberately and turns slowly to look into his beautiful eyes. "I am Prince Alexi, from Belarus," he says, kissing her hand. Well, no Svetlana tonight, she thinks: "Nice to meet you, Prince." He informs her that he's flying back to his "home country" now, to celebrate his new oil pipeline, and asks her to join. "You know, I'm pretty much over college, and uh..." -- I just got cast on this hospital drama that looks like it'll do well, playing a rookie nurse -- "...Well, who am I to say no to a prince?" He smiles, creepy, and whisks her away; past Dorota, in a kerchief, hiding behind cocktail menu and grinning wildly. Normally I'd say Dorota is the voice of reason, but it's Georgina. Even if she wasn't doing this for B, she'd do it for them all. We know she loves Chuck, but I think she secretly likes Nate and Serena even more than I do, which is tough to pull off.
"There are songs that make us want to dance, songs that make us want to sing along..." GG says, apparently talking about Sonic Youth, as the camera sweeps past sad Nate to sad scared Serena: "But the best songs are the ones that bring you back to the moment you first heard them, and once again break your heart." Don't worry, though. Looks like next week Serena wins Carter in a poker game, and Blair impulsively whores Chuck out to a dude, so, you know, we've got options. And as we say goodnight to the newlyweds, to Serena with her new problem and Nate with his new issues, and goodbye to Scott, and hello to a brand new family, you know what the good doctor would say:
"Evolution means gradual change. Applied to the natural world... it teaches that things were not in the beginning as we now find them, but that there has been constant though gradual change. Creation is regarded, not as having taken place once and for all, but as being a continuous process operating from the beginning without ceasing -- and still in progress."
