Storyline

As the summer of the Upper East Siders comes to a close, Blair returns from her summer trip to Europe with a charming new boyfriend, named James, just to make Chuck jealous when she takes him to the Hamptons to spend the last few weeks of the summer with her. However, 'James' is hiding a secret of his own from everyone. Serena, struggling to get over her breakup with Dan, takes a liking to a young lifeguard. Meanwhile, Nate gets involved in a steamy relationship with an older woman, named Catherine whom is married. While Rufus is still on tour with his band, Dan has remained in New York to take a job with a demanding magazine editor, and has gone on a dating spree to get over his breakup with Serena, while Jenny has taken a job at a fashion company working under the cynical, devil-incarnated Laurel, who holds Jenny back for she sees ambitious interns as a threat to her own job.

Quotes

[Blair about to leave with Marcus]
Blair Waldorf: Chuck, aren't you done trying to destroy my night?
Chuck Bass: Look, I should have never abandoned you. I know I made the wrong decision as soon as your plane took off. I distracted myself all summer, you might not feel it, but I still do.
Blair Waldorf: And?
Chuck Bass: I was scared, I was scared if we spent the whole summer together just us, you'll see.
Blair Waldorf: See what?
Chuck Bass: Me. Please don't leave with him.
Blair Waldorf: Why? Give me a reason, and "I'm Chuck Bass" doesn't count.
Chuck Bass: 'Cause you don't want to.
Blair Waldorf: Not good enough.

The One In The Hamptons...
3 May 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really love this episode. I think it's better than the Series Premiere. It's funny, it's full of drama, which you would expect nothing else from this show. I love that it takes place in the Hamptons, which just seems like a really cool place to spend your Summer.

In this episode, Summer is coming to an end, but everyone is still living it up in the Hamptons. Blair comes home, with Chuck waiting for her, only to have a boy on her arm. Which is just a game to make Chuck jealous, and we all know it. However, her new guy is hiding a secret. He's not as dull and boring as Blair thought. He's actually a Duke. Yes, a Duke. Serena is still struggling to get over her break up with Dan, for some reason, so she hooks up with a lifeguard. Nate is in a "relationship" with a married woman. Dan remained in New York working for a magazine editor and Jenny is working for a fashion company.

Overall, I give this episode a 10 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Freaking Ridonkulous.
