Lily is pissed at this point, because Serena has managed to embarrass the hog caller, then start a brawl between Nate and Carter...it's all so Serena, because she wasn't actually present for any of it, like, she just wanted to wear a pretty dress and for people to stop calling her grandmother an asshole. That's literally all she had on her agenda. And instead, she has caused chaos and ruin for the tenth night in a row. She yells at Lily for rewriting her presentation statement and the Junior League crap, and Lily's like, "It's a society ball, Serena. You have to represent yourself well." Serena asks the very Dan-like question, "How is it representing myself well if it's all lies?" Um, you just...answered your own question? I never expected to have to explain irony to Serena, about this of all things, but, like, to me? Being yourself is how they get you. Look at Blair: she keeps all her scary, awesome shit private, and never pays for anything. Why this need to implicate everybody in your shit, Serena? Just repress yourself until it comes out in weird kinky ways, like the rest of us! Serena points out that her mother, as late as earlier that day, was not a pod person, and that Lily lied and said it would be okay for Serena to be herself. "All you care about when people look at me is what they think of you." Um, yeah? See, this is what happens when you drink Dan's Kool-Aid. Basic shit stops making sense to you. Cece ghosts her way through the background of the scene but doesn't say anything. Lily protests that she accepts and loves Serena, but then Serena gets intense. "No you don't, but let me tell you something. If I ever do have those two children, I would never do this to them. I would accept them for who they are, including who they date, no matter what, and I'd make sure they damn well knew it." So...Eric is gay? Explains the highlights, at least. Serena runs off with her skirts held high and a very Dan-like anger in her eyes.
