It might be missing Jenny, but it isn't missing charm!
13 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was an amazing episode.

It humanizes Blair, Dan, and Serena in a fashion shoot/modeling plot line in which Serena tries to help Blair please her mother more, and Dan tries to figure out if Serena is worth it (this is questioned because of her frenemy friendship with Blair). This helped humanize the perfect Queen B and brooding Brooklyn boy, while showing more necessary flaws in the It-Girl.

Chuck throws and party and someone crashes and makes Nate reconsider the UES world. It makes Chuck more sympathetic and Nate more flawed.

Even with the show missing Jenny it doesn't miss the charm with high end fashion, an amazing party, plus drama, drama, drama!
