As Blair struggles to adjust herself to her British boyfriend, Lord Marcus Beaton's ways, he introduces her to his parents, where the identity of Lord Marcus' mother is revealed. At the Beaton party, Chuck tries to make Blair jealous when he shows up with Catherine, Nate's secret love interest. Meanwhile, Nate and Serena get closer while he tries to keep far away from Catherine, while Serena begins to have doubts about re-staring her romance with Dan. Chuck and Marcus Beaton begin an unexpected friendship, and Blair makes a revelation. Written by
Marcus' stepmother's title would not be 'Duchess Beaton' as in the United Kingdom, ducal titles are generally Duke of X, and the holder's last name is completely different from the title. For example, the current duke of Wellington's title is Arthur Wellesley, Duke of Wellington, not Duke Wellesley. Although it is not mentioned in the show, Marcus' title of Lord Marcus indicates he is a younger son, otherwise he would likely have a courtesy title as his father's heir. See more »
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.
