Eleanor and Blair strong-arm Dorota onto the elevator to take a plate to Vanya -- "Tom Colicchio live in building, I'm sure he sent plate already! Mr. Rufus good cook, but not Top Chef!" -- and she whines that her parents (Who are like the King and Queen of Poland or something, right?) will declare war on Russia and once again emerge victorious, because she's not married to Vanya, and they don't even care about her broken-English bullshit, and they wish her luck and then Eleanor throws her arm across B's shoulder and they are pretty much totally cute.
When Lonelyboy returns to DUMBO, Gabriela has packed up all her stupid shit and is leaving. She is also wearing a Navajo blanket like it's clothes. They have a conversation about how worthless Vanessa is, and Dan tries to convince a skeptical G that she is not worthless, and lists her many obnoxious accomplishments -- "She petitioned to keep a historic bar from closing in Brooklyn last year! And she spent the end of the summer rebuilding community gardens in Alphabet City!" -- and he tells Yo Gabba-Gabba how amazing and not-at-all disgusting Vanessa is, and she gets a wise smile on her face and informs Dan that he is in love with Vanessa, and he makes that face some more and babbles like he does, and Vanessa shows up to be an unasked-for buzzkill and day-ruiner some more, and Dan vanishes wearing an awesome grey wool trench that makes both Abrams A-Holes look even more shamefully like the grotty beasts they are. I'm secretly on Dan's side. I don't know how long that has been going on but it's real unnerving.
Tripp lets the Crazy Eyes take the lead as he approaches Nate and grunts angry incomprehensibles about what a traitor Nate is, and Nate calls him out on being insane and falling into Serena's trap of craziness and risking his entire life and point just to be with somebody who at this very moment may have forgotten his name, and points out that Tripp is still mostly thinking about Serena, who just dumped him in front of his wife before he even got to second, so it's time to reprioritize. Chuck watches this conversation for a while, and then Tripp makes Craziest Ever Eyes as he's leaving, like the eyes themselves have fingers that do the two-finger eyeball-to-eyeball "I'm going to have your ass" gesture without him even having to use his hands, and then Chuck's truly insane giant plaid tie asks Nate why he didn't just say the truth, which is that he is also stuck in Serena's crazy sandtrap of love.
