| Halloween is in the air and Rufus is decorating rocker themed pumpkins. Something tells me he will be the only one to get into the true Halloween spirit this year. |
Chuck is hard at work trying to make his hotel business a success. He claims to have forgiven Blair, but doesn’t really appreciate her ideas about the hotel. She wants him to open up the club soon in order to bring people to the hotel, but he doesn’t seem that interested. But he does, however, seem very interested in proving himself to be a big important grown-up businessman.
Back in Brooklyn, Dan is finally ready to watch Olivia’s movies, The Endless Nights Trilogy, and Nate being the good friend that he is, fills him in on all the gory details. Apparently she had been dating her costar Patrick Roberts at the time of filming, and there are some pretty hot n heavy sex scenes. Dan mentions to Nate that he and Olivia haven’t slept together yet, but they have plans this weekend so…
Just then, perfectly timed as always, a blast from GG with a picture of Olivia taking some free condoms.
Serena is at work (for once!) and Casey starts telling her that it will ruin Patrick’s career if he is not dating Olivia. Apparently Patrick must be another client of hers. Anyway, she asks Serena to take care of the “Dan Humphrey Situation” but S refuses. Casey makes vague threats about her career, and walks away.
On the steps of the Met, we watch Jenny go from normal friend and step-sister (with Eric) to ruthless Queen (with her minions) in 5 seconds flat. Then, when she realizes Eric and Jonathon are sitting on the steps higher than her, she has to ask them to move. Eric gets why she has to act that way, but Jonathan is not convinced.
Dan and Nate are enjoying a certain little vampire movie back in Brooklyn. Well, Nate is enjoying it, Dan is kinda freaking out. The sex scenes are a little explicit for his taste. When Olivia calls, he pretends to have the flu and tells her he’ll call her in a few days.
Blair is telling Serena about all of the plans she’s made for the opening of Chuck’s club, behind his back but for his own good. Serena then gets a phone call from Chuck and Blair puts him on speaker. Chuck says he wants her help as a publicist (slash pseudo celebrity) to open the club tomorrow, but he doesn’t want Blair anywhere near the plan.
Serena gets to work on it, thinking that if she doesn’t mention it to her boss Casey until it is a huge success, she will prove what she can do. Also, she is worried that if Casey finds out, she will take it away from her. Serena tries to convince Blair that today is not all about her, and she needs to just relax. But we all know Blair better than that, don’t we?
At Lily’s apt, Rufus is getting a little too excited about dressing up and passing out candy to the trick or treaters. Lily tells him she told Chuck they would go to his club opening, but Rufus insists they should stay home. Lily doesn’t have the heart to tell Rufus that trick or treaters don’t come into their building.
Back on the steps, Jonathan and Eric still feel like Jenny is being obnoxious in her new role, so Jonathan decides to defy her. They both go up and sit on the steps higher than she does, consciously breaking a hard and fast Queen rule. Jenny asks them to move but when they don’t, her minions dump their yogurt parfait all over Eric and walk away.
Back in Brooklyn, Olivia visits Dan at the loft to bring him some soup, only to find that he feels fine. She figures out why Dan has been acting so funny, and reveals to him that her relationship with Patrick was always strictly for publicity, and she never had feelings for him. She tells him it wasn’t a sex tape – it was acting. So then Dan feels better.
Serena gets found out by her boss and is thisclose to getting fired when she tells Casey that she is planning this whole thing just for Olivia and Patrick to get back together. Now, she just needs to find a way to make that happen…
Chuck is finding it impossible to get his liquor license approved, and he is worried the only way he can get it is by sending over a bribe. Just then he gets a call that it was approved, and he is proud that he got it done the honest way.
We then flash over to Blair getting a text from uncle Jack Bass saying that the liquor license was taken care of and now they are even. So it looks like as predicted, Blair is not going to stay by and watch Chuck’s club open without her influence.
Chuck comes by to apologize to Blair and formally invite her to the club, presenting her with a beautiful dress for the 1920’s speakeasy theme. He tells her he didn’t mean to leave her out of it, he just needed to do it on his own, as a big important businessman.
Serena heads over to the loft to talk to Olivia. She asks her to just walk the red carpet with Patrick, and that will get Casey off both of their backs. Olivia agrees but Dan is kinda hurt.
Eric comes home from school to change clothes and is visibly upset. He tells Lily to ask Jenny what happened. Lily and Jenny sit down to talk about it, and Jenny tells Lily the whole story. Lily says that she can still go to Chuck’s party, as long as Eric still wants to go with her, and if all of her friends apologize to him.
When the man delivers the liquor license, he mentions something about being happy to do a favor for Jack Bass. When Chuck accuses Serena of calling Jack, Blair eventually admits to having done it. Chuck tells Blair that he is not mad about last week, but he just doesn’t trust Blair. And she is uninvited from the party.
At the club opening, the guests show up in their finest 1920 attire. Jenny tells the mean girls she got in trouble for what happened to Eric, but now she has a plan.
Blair is not at the party, she is at home with Dorota playing chess and using chess euphemisms to describe her situation when a bouquet of flowers arrives for her. She thinks they are from Chuck but when she reads the card she realizes they are not, and immediately starts getting ready to get to the club.
Lily pays the doorman to get some kids to come up to the apt. Rufus eventually figures it out and thanks Lily for doing that for him. She didn’t want him to feel he had to leave all of her traditions behind, but he suggested they make new ones.
The party is going along swimmingly. Blair rushes over to the club to apologize to Chuck/tell him that Jack’s permit was a fake, but he already knows. But as long as the Paparazzi show up along with the police, it will be good for business.
Eric apologizes to Jenny for ratting her out to his mom, and they make nice. Meanwhile, the mean girls are busy egging Jonathan outside in his 1920’s suit.
Serena tries to get Patrick and Olivia together for a picture when she sees Olivia making out with Dan. She goes to take care of it when the police arrive at the party.
Serena can’t believe that Chuck would just sit there and let the cops ruin the party. But he and Blair let S know about the plan. Serena can’t believe they would do this to her – her clients could get bad press out of this.
As the cops are escorting everyone out of the building, Olivia confesses to Dan that Patrick was not her fake boyfriend and when she broke up with him, she broke his heart. She lied to Dan before because she didn’t want him comparing himself to some “well lit, heavily edited performance”. She had only agreed to walk the red with Patrick to help his career.
Serena bursts in on their moment and makes them follow her. She tells them to kiss and then unleashes the Paparazzi on them. When they ask questions about who is dating Patrick, Serena jumps in and says she is, and they kiss for the cameras.
Chuck and Blair rejoice over the success of their raided party and Chuck tells Blair she will never be completely trust-worthy, but that’s what keeps things interesting. So, they make up.
Dan and Olivia make up, and since Vanessa is somewhere visiting her sister and not around, Dan and Olivia have the room all to themselves…and we all know what that means.
Jenny comes home and tries to apologize to Eric, although not really. She basically says at school she has to act a certain way, but that she is still his friend and his sister. But he says he doesn’t want anything to do with her regardless.
Serena apologizes to Casey about the night, and Casey says that she did a good job because she got her celebs photographed at the hottest club, and she got Patrick some press. Oh yeah, and her job now includes publically dating Patrick.
Chuck says that he doesn’t care that he won’t get a new liquor license for at least 6 months. He plans to have a real speakeasy anyway. Passwords, back doors, the whole thing.
Blair asks Serena if she’d like to be the publicist for the new club, and she tells B she would never work for her. She tells her that Chuck may have forgiven her, but she hasn’t.
So at the end of night, all is pretty much back to normal with Dan and Olivia and Chuck and Blair. Jenny, however, has crossed the line of no return and starts going through her giant closet and getting rid of all of her homemade clothes and sewing machine. Guess the Queen is here for good.
