GG immediately puts aside our fears about Blair and Chuck's depression nap last week: "Morning in New York: Time to wake up from bad dreams, roll out of the beds we've made, and start making plans for a brighter future." Blair heads down the dorm hallway to her room, asking Chuck to take some time off for her: "With you focused on making your mark in the business world and me focused on..." She sort of shudders: "Point being, I just got out of my first class, and I was thinking if I skipped French History, we might have enough time to squeeze in a mid-morning Renaissance before lunch..." French History is the last class B should be skipping, because it's a catalog of every mistake she ever makes.
("We're #1" by The World Record plays through the opening scenes; operative lyrics here being: "In the meantime I need some mean time/ To wipe out any goodwill building up.") Continuing the whole aristocracy theme with Blair this year, she has no idea what the sock on her doorknob means, and she removes it -- wearing gloves -- and enters, only to find Lonelyboy atop Miss Georgina Sparks. A conniption results -- "I'm wearing a glove, and I still want to wash my hands!" -- and Blair throws her gloves at him while he's scrambling to dress. He lamely, Danly, grabs a book at random to claim he's borrowing it, and is disappointed but game with the result: "It's, um, Our Bodies, Ourselves: A New Edition For A New Era. That's excellent." Heh. And here we thought his exhaustive survey ended with Forever.
Blair, assuming this is about her, assures Georgina that her scheme -- to "run me out of my own room with a half-naked Dan Humphrey" -- won't work. Georgina is delightful, stretching out on her bed with ugly/awesome Delia*s tights, tells her to stay and observe: "Maybe you'll learn something." Dan mumbles and stammers about how he was just going to hit the trail, and Blair rolls her eyes. "It just so happens I'm on my way to a very important breakfast; I just stopped by to drop off my books and pick up my mail. So feel free to 'hit the trail' all you want." She takes off, reminding Dan that the move from Serena to Georgina is less a lateral one and more of a fall. "Even for you," she says with a mean look, and vanishes.
Georgina shimmies catlike off the bed and toward him, talking about their relationship and how of course B can't handle it, "But I think Vanessa's gonna be supportive. And Serena. And Jenny, your dad..." Dan nods at this list, which is quite large to have come up with so easily, and she asks him to breakfast with her hands on his shoulders. He bounces and she stares after him with the look of crazy.
yeah you make a decent stand in
typically boring of course
