Other returning guests include Flow (Crazytown's Bret "Epic" Mazur), performing his hit "Butterfly Carb-Free Baby"; the Raves (the Vines, with Howlin' Pelle Almqvist on vox); Andy Dick as Dan's friend Greg; gross-ass Brett Ratner as moviemaker Ken Mogul; Isabelle Huppert as that weird French chick; Bai Ling as wacky bisexual chemistry teacher Miss Wisteria; and Kurt Russell as Captain Chips.
But you want to know how it all ends, right? Okay, it's like this. Simple Minds' 1985 smash "Don't You Forget About Me" -- remixed by Crystal Castles so it's not all cheesy, but retaining the same guitars and vocals in the mix so it's not gayer than Blair's dad -- is playing when the lights come up on the final scene: a graduation party at the Yale Club, thrown by the Socials & Munitions Subcommittee of the Monday Peer Group (a.k.a. the Monique Lillehammers). Blair is wearing a deep blue velvet Ungaro with a wide satin ribbon reminiscent of an obi. Serena is wearing this really weird, flowy thing that's kind of golden, but rusty? Or I guess rosy? It's hard to explain the color but it looks really hot. She looks really curvy in it because it's got all these sheer layers, and also her hair has looked super great since it started growing in again. She's got a silver belt on, but not that fat kind, it's super thin, like maybe a filigreed chain or something, and she's got a little silver bag, because apparently purses are back or she's got her period or something. Jenny Humphrey is wearing some godawful Hermione Granger-looking potato sack and we still haven't located her boobs. And there's Nate, desperately trying to find them with his bloodshot eyeballs, face permanently crumpled from trying to have a whole face in addition to the eyebrows. He's wearing some kind of deconstructed joke about tuxedos and you know he's going commando. Dan Humphrey is wearing an ascot; actually, he and Chuck are wearing matching ascots, but who knows what the hell that's about. Dan's is a creamy peach that really complements his eyes, Chuck's is some British color that really complements his sexual deviancy.
Based on what she's wearing, I'd have to say Vanessa Abrams is protesting either dances, parties, or clothes. I don't even want to go into it. Also, her lipstick makes her look like a big stupid bald drag queen. Lily and Rufus are dancing together, and they look magnificent: she's in this beige Azzedine Alaia that made Posh look like a wigwam, but she's an actual woman, and can pull it off. Rufus is wearing like a black leather tuxedo-cut jacket, but it's soft calfskin, so it's more like Serpico and less like Rock Of Love. He looks totally hot, as usual. They're doing something Miss Wisteria refers to as "the Kid N Play," but who knows what grownups are talking about, ever. Eleanor Waldorf and her stupid husband Cyrus are in stocks over by the punch table -- Serena's gift to Blair, as Princess of the Universe -- and she's wearing a classic ivory Vera Wang. He's wearing this too-tight Paul Smith thing that he probably thought was a tuxedo but actually makes him look like a member of the Fat Dork Army. Hunched over like that, you can tell that they're really in love.
