Did You Know?


Nate, Blair, and Dan all mistake Jenny for Serena after Serena lends her some of her clothes and her mask. See more »


Serena discovers that Dan is lying to her about the girl she hears over the phone because he said it was Jenny, and Jenny showed up at Blair's at that second. This is impossible. Jenny left Brooklyn less than five minutes ago. The least amount of traffic in the world or fasted subway couldn't get her that far that fast. See more »

~*-Go little Jenny!-*~
3 June 2008 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

Bair is up for some more games, little Jenny shows more of her potential and she can still seem only innocent in doing so. Serena and Dan go on and off, with his ex-girlfriend, Vanessa in town. Nate is accused by his parents, of taking drugs, which in fact are his fathers. Chuck is being Chuck, like always, only this time... he is victimized by little Jenny. Boo hoo.

My favorite part of the episode was seeing Chuck's angry face after he was left alone and half-naked on the roof. Of course, Jenny's playing hot and cold with him, was fun also.

Vanessa isn't a character I like, so scenes with her seemed pretty annoying to me. She's the third wheel, no matter what. How can she come and hope for things to go back the way they were? Silly lovesick girl.
