Episode Synopsis: Oh those crazy van der Woodsens! They're just like your family right? If your mom holes up with her ex husband who's the only one that can treat her "illness" that (SPOILER ALERT) is not really an illness but just the lynchpin of her ex husband's scheme to do...well...to do something. Other plotlines include Serena sticking it to the poor man's version of herself for trying to bed the one and only Nate, Blair taking absence of frills and ruffles and headbands (for just one episode) to attend a hipster party in search of Chuck 2.0, and Vanessa and Dan's relationship headed down a dangerous path after his lies were exposed. Secrets, schemes and lies? Just another week on the UES.
There's no snark to be found here. I too would close my eyes and languish in the limo if my winter garb was this lux and glam.
A nice family portrait. Like I've always said, the family that wears the same neutral color palate together, stays together. Even if they have to deal with this quack's subterfuge:
Doesn't this look just scream sinister evil plotmaster? Or executive CEO in the midst of a weekend getaway to the islands? He most certainly is a Van der Woodsen.
And here's Serena's outfit for Take Your Estranged Daughter to a Very Expensive Lunch Day:
I mean, what is a lunch with your father without a plunging neckline?
And despite the intense drama involved in thwarting Jenny's plans to make Nate hers, Serena sees a silver lining:
Striking a pose! Sure, she and Nate may have been on the rocks, and Jenny may have needed to be seriously schooled in the fine art of not seducing S's boy (man?) but that's no reason not to show off the latest it bag.
