Welcome back, GG fanatics. In “The Last Days of Disco Stick,” Lady Gaga makes a cameo performance (hot!) but major lip-synching is involved. (Hello? Didn't Gags learn anything from Britney’s trip…the one to Australia, not the stint in rehab?!) In case you missed what went down this episode, Blair memorizes her lines, Serena crosses the line, and Jenny snorts a line…well, not yet -- but we're sure that’s coming!
Poor Blair. She may be only a comforting ten-minute subway ride away from her old kingdom at Constance, but NYU remains a world B just can’t seem to crack. After the ringleader of the Tisch drama students insists on keeping Blair on the outs, she turns to Olivia for an invite to the group's cabaret—desperate times clearly call for desperate measures.
Well, B, you sure know how to win over a crowd! She turns in a dazzling performance---part of an homage to one well-known NYU alum, Lady Gaga. Then B really takes the spotlight, working the crowd into a frenzy before shocking them (in a good way!) with a private performance with Lady G. Well played, well played.
Serena, you’re a skank. Nate drops the L bomb on S while downing shots at a bar. Just for a moment, we think we’re going to witness a drunken makeout sesh. But no, her ho-meter is still on the rise! Once she hears that Trip is devastated by his wife’s betrayal, S is all over him like fake Gucci on Canal Street. Serena. Go. To. Therapy!
Since we’re on the topic of superficial love, Olivia starts a catfight with Vanessa over Dan while rehearsing for the NYU cabaret show (Dan writes a skit for the cabaret, Vanessa directs it, and Olivia and Blair star). Later, Olivia calls Dan out on his underlying feelings for Vanessa. In the final moments of the skit, V is suddenly called to fill in for a missing Olivia -- which means Dan has to kiss Vanessa on stage. When he shows a little more passion than necessary, Olivia decides to leave school to film a craptastic movie. She won't return until fall. Sayonara, Olivia!
AND THE JUST PLAIN SINFUL:Little J, the future hallway pusher! We thought she might have some tiny bit of conscience left, but this girl will do whatever it takes to be noticed. For now, "whatever" consists of hanging with wealthy European drug dealers in Central Park! Wow, girl! It’s a good thing Chuck comes to her rescue, but we have a sneaking suspicion that J's troubles with hottie bad boy Damien are juuusssst beginning. Hmm, what a perfect name for a guy who’s pure evil!
