The Blair Bitch Project





















Gossip Girl – The Blair Bitch Project
A dethroned Blair musters up the strength to head back to school, and Jenny tries to keep up with the financial demands of the in crowd. Meanwhile, Serena, Eric, and Chuck adjust to their blended families living under one roof.

Poor Jenny has really fallen in with the bad crowd. Not even her new BFF Nate or her super-hot dad Rufus can save her from herself at this point. Jenny moved into Blair's territory while Blair was recovering from her Chuck/Nate scandal. Now the only way Jenny can stay afloat amongst the richies at school is to pawn all of her belongings at a vintage clothing shop. I think I tried that in high school but it only got me $15, surely not enough to pay for a $120 brunch in Manhattan. But I digress...

Nate and Jenny have formed some sort of bond. I'm not really sure when that happened. Maybe it was when Nate accidentally smooched Jenny at the masquerade ball or maybe it was when Jenny told Nate that Blair did it with Chuck. All I know for sure is that when Jenny gets the genius idea to steal a custom-made red Valentino dress to pawn in order to buy a cheap Dolce & Gabbana frock, it is Nate that she calls to bail her out, asking to borrow $8000 in order to buy back the Valentino and remove suspicion from her initial criminal act. I'm sorry, $8000?! Isn't Nate's dad in prison? Does he really have that sort of petty cash lying about? Didn't his dad already use it to buy coke?

Speaking of coke, Serena received a little packet of white powder in the mail and a giant parcel of champagne bottles was delivered to her at school. Assuming Chuck is the culprit, Serena gets Chuck kicked out of their new family home (remember that Lily and Chuck's dad are about to marry, therefore both families are shaking up Brady Bunch-style). Turns out that the gifts were actually from "G," who turns out to be some girl named Georgina (played by Michelle Trachtenburg).

Some people know Trachtenburg from Buffy but I know her as Harriet the Spy or Nona from The Adventures of Pete and Pete. I cannot believe that Harriet the Spy is the one person who is able to turn Serena's world upside down, but apparently "G" is going to do just that.

Are Jenny and Nate dating now?!?

Not yet but I imagine that some Nate/Jenny love will happen very soon.

Of COURSE Nate has that kind of dough handy -- his mother is the rich one. He needs to use all his extra cash to move into the roll of Jenny's sugardaddy. Then she wouldn't have to be such a b.i.t.c.h.

Your post has made me realize that I always get Nona and Ellen confused when I think back now ... for some reason I thought Iggy Pop was Ellen's dad (not Steve Buscemi). I have a memory of Iggy Pop dancing wildly at the school dance in the episode with Luscious Jackson. Also, didn't big Pete hook up with one of the Luscious Jackson girls? And isn't that, like, totally statutory rape?

You're right. Steve Buscemi was Ellen's dad and Iggy Pop was Nona's dad. And I'm bettin' that Pete just smooched the girl from Luscious Jackson because he was totally into Ellen. Right?
