Serena, Blair, Dan, and the rest of the seniors try to find out who is worthy of an early admission to Yale. Serena discovers that she has been accepted, but concedes the acceptance to let Blair take the position because of what Blair will do as a result. Serena also connects with a young new Shakespeare teacher, Rachel Carr, who has no clue about what is going to happen when she gives Blair the first 'B' grade in her life, but Blair soon comes to learn that she may have met her match against this latest addition to her school. Meanwhile, Chuck reluctantly joins forces with Lily in his war against his manipulative Uncle Jack over controlling Bass Industries. Also, Nate and Vanessa plan to take their romance public by attending a romantic night date at the opera, while Lily wants to do the same with Rufus despite his loathing of the wealthy high-society world, and of her reputation in the community over recent events.

Early in the episode Roman says he heard Blair watching Gilmore Girls all night and Blair said she's a "much better fit for Yale than that Rory." Gilmore Girls was directed by Amy Sherman-Palladino, who was lined up to direct Gossip Girl when it was originally going to be a movie. See more
It's all the color of Yale. You see?
That's just what I need to perk me up. I couldn't sleep a wink.
We know. We heard you watching "Gilmore Girls" all night, again.
Oh, I am so better fit for Yale than this Rory.
