At the end of this episode after Catherine gives Nate an envelope in the limo, a take of NYC from an helicopter is shown. If you look carefully you can clearly see how the cars on the street move "backwards". This scene was taken in the other direction. See more »
Serena van der Woodsen:
Blair Waldorf, a fling? You're not exactly low maintenance.
It's like Roman Holiday but I'm Gregory Peck and he's Audrey Hepburn!
Serena van der Woodsen:
And you really expect me to believe this isn't all about revenge on Chuck?
Revenge is so 12 hours ago! And just because Marcus is the perfect post-Bass palate cleanser doesn't mean he isn't a delicious dish in his own right.

There are some flattering shots of Blair in this episode, and Serena is quite provocative when she sucks on a chocolate coated strawberry.
Chuck has good movement, and it's really a pity that he didn't challenge Dan back the various times they have confronted each other.
The 40-year old Catherine 'Duchess' Beaton who helps Nate out financially in return for sexual favours is a good concept, but playing with her step-son as well makes you lose sympathy for her. I can understand Nate going from Blair to Catherine, and I can understand Catherine wanting younger flesh in addition to her husband. But the step-son and his false British accent lacks credibility.
I think Blair is better off with Chuck as he knows her better than she knows herself, whereas Nate doesn't quite know himself or the women he's with.
