Jenny thanks B for helping her out with the broken bracelet clasp, and B is awesome: "Oh, it was my pleasure. ...Oh, wait. No, it wasn't. Game recognizes game, Little J, but you have to show more respect. This is the last time I help you. Next time you cross me, I won't be as forgiving." I lost count of how many times in the past five days somebody said, "Game recognizes game, Little J," where I could hear them, but I laughed every single time. Blair is awesome. Jenny shakes right down to her glass slippers and swears there won't be a next time, and Blair settles down and they're friends again. "I want tell you something, something nobody knows. Not even Serena. You can keep a secret, right?" Jenny does the ankle-dip of pure bliss, and B spills the beans: "Nate is planning on giving me his family diamond. It's the most incredible ring you've ever seen." Jenny's wearing a strange polka-dot shrug like in Funny Face, and asks for clarification: "Uh, 'ring' as in engagement ring?" Blair slips into soliloquy mode: "I remember the first time I ever saw him. Maybe we were just little kids, but I knew: he's the one I wanna marry. Now it seems like he feels the same way, too." Jenny stands very, very still, attempting to become invisible, but Blair sees through it. "Why are you not happy for me?" Jenny hems and haws and blames her cheater parents and family drama, and tries to beat a hasty retreat, but B is onto her: "No, maybe you should look at me in the eye and tell me what you're hiding." Yes! I wish this was the entire show! "Are you jealous?" Jenny says no, of course not. "Do you like him?" Blair's delighted. "Do you think because you talked to him once in the hall that you might have a shot?" Jenny swears it's nothing like that, and B demands to know, then, what it is like. Jenny whines that she doesn't want to hurt Blair, who totally scoffs: "How could you hurt me?" Seriously! I love it! Jenny tells her about her previous conversation with Nate, when he grabbed her at the ball and professed his love for S. Her heart breaks for Blair: "He kissed me." And B cuts her dead: "That's enough." Over Jenny's protestations, she issues a decree: "You're dismissed, Jenny. For good." Jenny leaves, crying, and for the moment Blair's more sad than hateful. She just stares into space, thinking and nearly weeping.
