Despite the episode’s title, I’m going to go out on a limb and say it’s really not. Unless you make it so. And our friends on the UES excel at making things really complicated, particularly during the holidays.  B cancels plans for Paris to help S and Lonely Boy throw a feast for friends…and enemies, as it turns out. B turns to teen hellion Sage for help, which leads to S finding Steven and Sage in grocery store. (A place I’m sure none of them knew existed. That is what the help is for.) Speaking of daddy issues, Nate sleeps with a teenager and Chuck drowns his sorrows in a bottle until B shows up dressed in the skimpiest Native-American themed outfit she could find. Dan has apparently written two “Serena chapters” (one naughty, one nice) and tries to decide which he should release. Thankfully, Georgina is around to make sure the chapter with the most entertainment value is published. While S is hurt, Lonely Boy gets on his high horse and rides back to Brooklyn with whatever plan he’s been cooking. Rufus gives out advice that no one listens to, Lily changes her mind about which Bass to believe (we’ll see how long that lasts. I’m not sure she’s to be trusted), buisness associates of Bart’s turn up dead, and Bart and Nate continue with their blackmail plot (hands in the air if you just don’t care about that one).


 Party du Jour
S and Lonely Boy host a Thanksgiving party for the whole gang.

Best Quotes
“Aren’t you supposed to be on a white sandy beach where no one pays any capital gains tax?”

“Hey Dan, that was from all of us,” said the pots as they called the kettle black as Nate punched Dan. 

Best Outfit
The skirt was short, but S in a fair isle sweater and flippy skirt with boots was adorable. 

Worst Outfit
Blair’s culturally insensitive role playing outfit wins, handsdown. I guess it’s a good thing she’s friends with S again, otherwise, where would she get that outfit on such short notice? While infinitely more modest, the grey pantsuit wasn’t much better when it comes to style choices.

Only two episodes left! And Bethany gets to be thankful for the last Thanksgiving episode of the series.
