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.

Nate Archibald: No thanks. Little early for me.
Chuck Bass: So how can I help, Nathaniel?
Nate Archibald: About last week. The money? I might have overreacted a little.
Chuck Bass: A little?
Nate Archibald: Yeah. And, hey, if you can, I would love to take you up on your offer.
Chuck Bass: I thought you were getting the money from somewhere else.
Nate Archibald: Yeah, well, that person is asking for a lot.
Chuck Bass: Well... I'd love to accommodate you. But when you spurned my offer, I sent the money to my financial guide. It's tied up in funds for six months.
Nate Archibald: Oh. Uh, no, ...

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.
