Storyline

Serena, Blair, Nate, Chuck and their entourage break into the school swimming pool for a night of fun, but when a member of their group nearly drowns, the school threatens to expel the person responsible for the break-in. Everyone agrees to keep a secret pact and say nothing, but it ultimately creates major tension between Serena and Dan, who isn't sure he's ready to take the fall for someone else and risk his future. Meanwhile, Vanessa is working on a documentary project about private schools and accidentally captures Blair and Chuck discussing their affair. Also, Lily contemplates telling Rufus how she really feels about him. Written by Anonymous

Dan and Serena studying together
17 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

Dan is presented with the possibility that if he is expelled from school he has nothing else to fall back on. I know how that feels because when I was called up to the office of the Head of Department, I was presented with the possibility that if I was expelled from university I would have nothing to fall back on. Like Dan, Serena says that if she is expelled she doesn't think any school would take her. At this point I believe that Dan and Serena are two lost souls who have found and deserve each other.

We see Vanessa making a documentary to get a grant, but we don't get a clear sense of her character like Jenny. We know that Jenny is a social climber living in low rent accommodation who is prepared to sell her soul to break into middle class society. Vanessa is not like that so we're not sure what she's about. Does she really want to make documentaries? We don't see her putting herself out of the way to get into a filmmaking community.

Perhaps the most touching scene in this episode is when Rufus says to Lily that he is still in love with her.
