Is there any better way to celebrate the eve of Valentine’s Day than watching the Upper East Siders shop Cartier jewellery in the comfort of their own home? At least Serena (Blake Lively) and Chuck (Ed Westwick) are on #teamforeveralone tonight. Of course Blair (Leighton Meester) is always on a mission for love and tries to set up Dan and Serena. As for Nate (Chace Crawford) and chasing poor catering girls, I don’t think Blair’s cupid skills can help with that.
Georgina Sparks (Michelle Trachtenberg) is the life of the episode and totally schooling Blair on manipulating her minions. She creates a “Come As You Are” tribute to high school party and gets the Spectator to hold it. Plaid, khakis and ‘spin the bottle’ games? I’m in! As if we’re not done waltzing in the past, even Charlie (Kaylee DeFer) comes back and immediately gets herself caught in Georgina’s web. But the secret weapon to crushing Blair’s not-so-loveless day is through more of Dan’s interference.
Georgina forces Dan to kiss Blair, but of course that doesn’t happen. He needs to do it on his own (and in front of Serena) so it can really have an impact. Although I’m totally a Dan and Blair fan, I’m not enjoying how this is playing out. There’s too much to lose: a pre-nup, a best-friend, Chuck? I’m glad Blair at least knows better to stay away from this one. But we all know how well she deals with desire.
