Lily Van Der Woodson is still in control! At the end of last weeks episode I know we were all a little skeptical of Lily's social status, but who had the last laugh in this weeks episode "Petty In Pink." Lily was throwing a charity event in her penthouse and had asked the other girls on the committee to come over and help her with the gift bags. Only Nate's mother showed up, to inform Lily that there wouldn't be any gift bags. During the party Lily overhears other women talking about how they are going to take credit for the party and that once the photographer shows up, Lily will not be in the photos. After hearing this Lily escapes the party, knowing that her ankle bracelet will summon the cops. When the cops show up, Lily uses her witt and charm to persuade them to break up the party. Lily stands back and watches the other women shutter in embarrassment. When do Upper East Side parties ever get broken up?! Finally those snotty women get a taste of their own medicine.
Innocent little Charlie fits right into the scandalous lives of the Upper East Side. Watch out S, she may even be cattier than you! Serena gives Charlie a tour of the inside workings of Gossip Girl, and Charlie takes it upon herself to pump up the drama! When Serena belittles Charlie for claiming to have seen Dan and Blair enter the same restaurant Charlie takes matters into her own hands to prove that she was right.
Meanwhile, unexpected guest, Prince Louis of Monacco, came to New York to pay Blair a visit. They went on a secret date where Louis informed Blair that his body guard Lucien had hired Dan to write about Blair to prove that her and Louis were in love. The royal family was not okay with his relationship with Blair because she was just a commoner. A commoner? If Blair Waldorf is just a "commoner" what does that make me? But that is besides the point. When Blair finds this out her and Dan make a plot to fool Lucien at the Pink party and pretend they are dating. This way Blair and Louis can end up happily ever after. During their staged kiss, Charlie follows them and captures a video of it, posting it on Gossip Girl for all to see. The party is speechless. Especially Serena. Looks like Blair's plan wasn't full proof after all, have you been taking too much time away from your scandals B? Dan and Blair try and tell Serena that they have just been friends, but Serena doesn't buy it. In the end, Blair ends up with Prince Louis. Ugh how does she get so lucky?
Aside from all of this, Raina has decided to find her mother with the help of Chuck and Nate. They begin their search however, in the midst of this, Chuck learns from Raina's father, Mr. Thorpe, that Raina's mother died when Chuck's dad's hotel burnt down years prior. This makes Chuck even more determined to prove that she is alive, or get to the bottom of this scandal. What do you think? Is Mr. Thorpe is just trying to protect their family image or is he telling the truth?
The episode ends with Dan telling Vanessa they are no longer friends, and having a beer with Charlie at his place. Dan, you really need to calm down. Looks like lonely boy isn't so lonely anymore.
Until next time...xoxo
