Serena returns from her week-long trip to Spain with Poppy and Gabriel. But Serena becomes worried that during the hard partying in the country, she thinks she may have gotten married to Gabriel by accident. Meanwhile, Blair makes a secret deal with Nate's grandfather, William, to influence Nate to attend Yale when he decides to defy his grandfather and attend Columbia University in New York City instead. Later, Nate learns some disturbing information about his father's arrest while he is asked to be the best man at his cousin Trip's upcoming wedding. Chuck continues his debauched lifestyle of one-night stands while Jenny decides to make a stand for herself against the loathsome guy. Elsewhere, Dan takes a job as a waiter to earn money for college. H is distressed to find out that the job is a Passover Seder at the Waldorf penthouse that Cyrus holds, and on top of that... several of his friends and family are guests, including his father Rufus.

Gossip Girl - "When you lose hope in a dream sometimes all you are left with are sleepless nights".
Gossip Girl Climbs the stair a bit in 'Seder Anything' as the old twists are picked up here.
Blair and Nate's spur of the moment love affair well... was still there, except Blair was meshing into Nate's Aristocratic world where everything was filled of daisies and flowers and you're right, Blair becoming a Bride's Maid. At Least that's how it started off.
Blair seems to be losing touch with her Blitchy side lately, ... we haven't really gotten a Blair outburst lately. It's pitiful watching Blair in her dire state, unable to know what her future beholds. Even though I don't believe someone like Blair would be rejected from anything, she was a top notch student and worked hard for what she got. The writers are probably giving Blair a salvation plot; Blair needs to fall hard in order to rise to the top, at least I hope that's where they are going with her storyline.
How about Nate and Blair... completely unexpected huh. Well now she's holding Nate's hand through his family difficulties and finding her way to survive in that lifestyle.
Could you imagine Blair competing for a position as a Brides maid? It seemed like there were bigger fish in the sea and Blair was drowning.
What about that Maureen, she seemed like an older Blitch. How many people choose their bridesmaids from a list, was Maureen a bit low on friends...
From the moment Nate's grandfather approached Blair about Yale for Nate, I knew things would be blown out of proportion, especially when she accepted his preposition to influence Nate on Yale and what was she getting out of it...
The Grandfather - "Tell me what are your plans for next year? I know you pulled off college ...any word from the Junior Committee League at the Whitney?"
Blair - "Actually they didn't accept me!"
The Grandfather - "Oh I think that must be some kind of mistake I'll call Agnes Cessna immediately, she'll clear that right up!"
Surprise! Surprise!, he could help her... Imagine a grandfather that bribes their grandsons girlfriends just to pull things in their favor, very manipulative and scary when you think about it. I am sure the old Blair would've blackmailed him for his bribery... you are losing your edge Blair!
Just a hunch, but didn't you think it was funny how everything worked out in his favor.
--He holds the bribery over Blaire's head and throws it in her face in the end--
--Was Blair booted out of the secretarial position on purpose to appease 'grandfather's qualm'--
--Tripp had a 'secret' lunch date with Nate easily revealing his Grandfather's dishonesty and Grandfather regains Nate's trust by using Blair as bate--
Do you think it is his way of gaining control over Nate? Maybe he would rather choose an ideal girlfriend for him than Blair or even Vanessa. ...and there is always a third party involved. Tripp seems to be making everyone fall... (pun is intended) :) Coincidence maybe.
Eleanor and Cyrus host a ceremony and Lily invites herself over to promote Rufus' art gallery. These plot lines we could have done without.
What about Dan and his assistant. "I really need the money"
Eleanor didn't need him that badly, she managed fine without him, probably things would have been better without Dan and Serena's Public Display of Affection. That was really no way for Serena to treat her husband... but wait Serena is married, but wait she isn't or is she. What was implied, Gabriell and Poppy are working up some scheme to get at Serena, but why even bother? These story lines felt completely out of place... as well as
Chuck and Jenny... at one point It looked like Jenny and Chuck were going to do something... thank goodness nothing happened.
Chuck finally apologized for what happened in Season one between him and Jenny... how all of a sudden was that...
How out of place was Jenny and her new 'boy' friend, really.
The Blair scenes would have been enough to swallow in one episode.
Maureen - "I have some disappointing news, The Whitney Junior Committee felt. you were too new on the scene they chose Elizabeth instead" Blair
"Your bridesmaid" Maureen - "Give it time! When it comes to these
things it takes a while to start to matter..."
Blair - "Maureen,is already on the board of four charities and two museums and needs a personal assistant to keep track of her schedule. Not to mention being a socialite was good enough for Jackie O" Tisk Tisk, was Blair actually settling for 'Assistant'.
Blair - "I'm Sorry but just because I lost Yale does not mean I'm wasting my time at a non-Ivy League college reading 'Beloved' six times and experimenting with Lesbianism" Looks like Blair took a rain check on that snide remark about N.Y.U.
Gossip Girl "Oh Blair too bad you weren't invited to Nate and Tripp's lunch, because whatever happened looks like you're the one paying"
Not one of my favorite story lines but I'll rate it a... (For improvement this season)
