“Still, they’re cousins. Identical cousins and you’ll find. They laugh alike, they walk alike. At times they even talk alike. You can lose your mind. When cousins are two of a kind.”
Dan and Erin are plaid twinsies in the scene with Rufus. They have been spending way too much time together. Also - what is happening with Rufus's jeans? Is he tight-rolling?!
(P.S. What the heck is up with this hair? This surpasses “wind blow” and looks more like Rufus was caught in some sort of gale force wind.)
Upon hearing the sadness in Rufus’s voice, they decide to celebrate Rufus and Lilly’s anniversary by avenging Little J and taking down Chuck and Blair. They scheme away in Lilly and Rufus’s pad while huddling around this fabulous Missoni inspired Eames chair. I want it!!! Where has Lilly been hiding this?
News flash: Dan, you are in way over your Brooklynite head. Don’t try to out-scheme the schemers! Didn’t you see what Blair did to “Gothic Barbie” last week? A wily Dan steals a glance at the famous Peace Accord while hanging out with Nate. I hope Dan knocks over this sculpture on the way out. It is horrible and needs to be removed from Chuck’s otherwise perfect suite.
Again with the plaid? This is just too much tartan in one episode. I feel like I'm at a Scottish wedding. Quick, find me some bagpipes.
Upper Eastside Autumnal Perfection: Lilly and Rufus look remarkable. They think so too. “I know you think you're rock and roll, but you are wearing a two thousand dollar jacket.”
That’s when he gets the idea to call Rita the record exec and “ruin” Blair’s party. Just when things are getting good, Dan admits to the entire plan way to early, proving once and for all that he is a freaking sabotage amateur. He manages to alienate his dad and only friend in one fell swoop.
At least Dan’s sweet side comes out when he covers Lilly and Rufus’s house in paper pom poms for their “Paper” anniversary. Happy Anniversary you two!!
Back in Brooklyn, Vanessa cheers up Dan. The Commune must have really done a number on her because she actually looks normal… either that or I had too much champagne at B’s party. The tunic and eggplant colored slacks are fabulous. I would totally wear this. Her jewelry even seems subdued (for her).
Vanessa suggests that Dan needs “rest and a dose of Brooklyn.” I’m gonna disagree Vanessa. I think he needs to go wherever she just went (which I suspect was Fashion Boot Camp). I can’t take any more plaid.
