Hottest Girl: Blair 1. She color coordinates her minions. Blair’s orange-and-yellow dress is adorable enough on its own, but her matching henchwomen are an accessory money can’t buy.
2. She’s back on her game. Last year when they were together, both Blair and Chuck seemed to have come down with a bad case of scruples. We still want them together, but we kind of like them better this way: plotting to take down a hapless academic over something neither of them cares that much about.
3. Her hair. So cute! What is that, one tenth of a french braid? We love.
Hottest Guy: Ben 1. He’s getting scarier. Up until now it’s seemed like he and Juliet were collaborating because they were buddies; this week he seemed like he might be threatening her. We love the plot-thickening possibilities there.
2. He’s a Georgina-level mastermind. He’s never even met the gang (except possibly for Serena — we still don’t know their connection), and already he’s broken up a couple, nearly broken up best friends, and come thisclose to getting Serena expelled. It’s like the second coming of Chuck Bass. 3. What can we say? We’re suckers for a man in uniform.
