Episode Synopsis: I don’t even know how a brief summary can do this episode justice. So. much. happened. Lydia decides to take back her life and makes a cameo appearance in the Hamptons before returning to her NYC penthouse and doing a swan dive off her balcony. Emily’s plans finally aren’t going exactly as she would hope, and she ends up bestowing a little more responsibility upon Nolan. In minor news, Charlotte is still mad at Victoria for not loving her and Daniel decides the Grayson lifestyle isn’t for him. So he does the logical thing and takes the open bartending job at Jack’s bar. Yeah…that’s going to work out well. 

 

I know, I know this the probably the worst screencap ever but it was the only time I could get the full-frontal view of Victoria in an age-appropriate, form-fitting appropriate dress. Her tatas aren’t hanging out and it’s clinging in all the right places. Even though it’s hard to tell with my awful screencap, this green is such a lovely color on Victoria. I love how these Hamption ladies aren’t afraid of breaking out the color wheel!

Did Victoria mistake the Open Arms Benefits for Prom? While her dress is pretty exquisiite with a lot of faboosh tucking, pinning, and detailing, it’s one of those dresses that the really rich girl at your high school would wear to prom simply because the dress cost like $5,000. Take away the detailing and the color is drab and doing nothing for Vicky’s skin tone.

And what is with that updo?? You’re not 17, Victoria, going to Junior Prom. Did you see the rhinestones in there? Well, in her case they’re probably diamonds and not those sticky things you get at Claire’s

I just love that a super-wealthy person’s “casual” wardrobe is a dress shirt with the collar open. Normal people would wear a t-shirt and ratty sweatpants, but then, I suppose the Grayson’s aren’t exactly normal. I believe it was fellow YKYLF staffer Ann who pointed out that Casa de Grayson was the size of her neighborhood.

One day, the YKYLF staff was hanging out in our breakroom over doughnuts and champagne (read: we were at our individual locations chatting on the private staff FB group. No, I am not posting a link.), and someone pointed out that Charlotte was young Jenna Rink in 13 Going on 30. Thanks to that revelation, that’s all I can think of her as! And in stark contrast to the high schoolers on Gossip Girl, Charlotte dresses exactly as I would hope a rich adolescent should. I’m sure it’s some designer dress but it’s fun and colorful and perfect for joyriding in a $200,000 Mercedes.

Such a cute romper! If you’re going to get arrested and thrown in jail, this is how you should look.

Oh hello Daniel! Looks equally as good with no clothes as well as in a tux. Almost James Bonds-esque. Almost. Since he’s decided the family biz is not for him, maybe he could join the MI6’s training program?

There’s something about Frank…he’s shady yet (seemingly) loyal and kinda…hot. Yep, I said it. Maybe I’ve been watching The Bodyguard too much? I will say his five o’clock shadow needs to go away. Either grow it out or keep it clean.

I wonder what his backstory is…I think every character on this show is supremely interesting and I want to find out more about them. I hearby request that the writers concoct a companion guide, complete with character profiles and histories!
