Spring Break is over, and so are all of Blair's days of hiding away. Finally, after three weeks, she comes back to school, with an unpleasant welcome by Jenny and the "in" crowd, who throw ice cream in her hair. Serena believes that being mean was got Blair kicked out of the "in" crowd in the first place and dethroned "Queen Bee." When Jenny asks Blair to meet her at Butter along with all of Blair's former friends, Serena finds it the perfect opportunity for Blair to show just how nice she is. But the situation goes from nice to sour when Jenny and her friends purposely don't show up, leaving Blair all alone. Meanwhile, Jenny needs something to wear for her 15th birthday party, and eventually ends up stealing one of her friend's mother's dresses in exchange for a $1,200 dress in an exchange shop. But when Jenny tries to get it back, she learns the red dress is over $8,000. Once again, Jenny steals the red dress, throwing her coat over the dress. She comes home to a 15th birthday party...

Jenny sells her soul to break into the middle classes
Blair begins the episode by mourning her former life. Later, she accuses Chuck of being friendless and girlfriendless because of his diabolical ways. However, there are people who are friendless and companionless but are not diabolical. Chuck isn't a sympathetic character, but he is played very well albeit with a weak smile.
Again, we get a strong sense of Jenny's character who sells her sewing machine in order to earn the money to buy her way into middle class society. It can be quite expensive trying to socialise with the middle classes. I ended up in overdraft and scrounging for drinks whilst doing the socialising thing. Luckily I didn't have to sell anything, but keeping up appearances amongst the middle classes is expensive.
