Everybody crowds into Serena's old room to yell at Juliet, Blair starts taking off her earrings, and Serena tells everybody to shut up and stop yelling at Juliet. Blair assumes that S has once again been drugged and barks out orders: "Dan, write a list of everything Damien said that he sold to Juliet! [Nate], look at the list and tell us which one of those drugs causes you to repeatedly trust psychopaths! [Serena], call the police!" Heh. I like that she only called Dan by name (first name, in fact) and everybody else was just "You." Also that she assumes Nate is such a druggie that he would be able to come up with contraindications and side effects for the drugs Juliet bought.
S acknowledges that none of the many acts of Juliet is okay, but she refuses to put any more Donovan-Sharps in the clink. "Juliet, I'll find a way to get Ben out of prison, I promise. You're free to go now." It's pretty great, this little scene of Serena working things out without asking for permission or explaining why she's doing it. Blair screams and screams, but Juliet swears she won't do anything to anybody ever again, since it's all just this crazy mistake. Really? Because everybody's going to be ganging up on Lily in about five seconds and, as Georgina Sparks (and Vanessa Abrams, and even Little J) can tell you, the best way to get in on the NJBC is to be a double agent. At most, you lose your Bible money. And maybe the love of your Lord.
"I'm sorry, I just spent a day in a car, with Dan Humphrey, to try to track her down. And you're just letting her leave? I really need someone to tell me what's going on!" But first, Serena needs to go attack her mom some more now that she's chased off the entire party. You know that I love how every episode has a party, but what I'm really digging this year is how easily you can disperse an entire crowd of Manhattan's scandalous elite. One childish, bitchy speech and they bounce. Remember that fashion party that they just kept ruining? I swear they went to like five different houses that night. Or the time Vanessa Abrams convinced the entire board of G.I.R.L.S. Inc. to randomly attend a sex party at the Empire? And they all arrived in trenchcoats?
