"The Blair Bitch Project" kicked off the back end of Gossip Girl Season 1 and boy was it fantastic.
As much drama as was laced throughout the first season, there was something about these later episodes that were a real kick in the pants. Between the high stakes cattiness between Blair and her former minions and the X-rated gifts Serena kept receiving, Gossip Girl Season 1 Episode 14 was on fire.
After Blair's dethroning in Gossip Girl Season 1 Episode 13, which 75% of you voted as epic, she went into hiding. I do so love Blair's Audrey Hepburn dreams and enjoyed when this episode kicked off with an ode to Breakfast at Tiffany's.
Blair knew her biggest adversary in returning to school unscathed would be Jenny. Unfortunately she was right and her dream of making it back to the halls of Constance without any heckling or dramatics was blown to bits with the perfect aim of Jenny's yogurt bomb. Don't people go to the principal for that kind of stunt nowadays? Nevermind, they got away with almost anything back then.
Serena convinced Blair that if she was just nice, everything would fall back into place. It was a noble idea on Serena's part, but completely unrealistic. Those girls never played nice, least of all Blair. Serena must've been hallucinating on behalf of all the Humphrey sex she was having.
Well Blair got a good jab in by hijacking Little J's 15th birthday party. The Jenny cake and childish decorations were perfect. Even B couldn't have predicted that Jenny would've been caught wearing Hazel's mom's stolen one of a kind Valentino. Is Penelope that desperate for Nate that she would make Hazel forgive a 15K debt for his attention? I mean it is Chace Crawford, but still...
Lest anyone think Serena's life was all hearts and flowers, she and Eric had to move in with the Bass family over break. Becoming Chuck's stepsister? Not ideal.
Serena: Okay let's get one thing straight. Our parents might be insisting on blending our households but I am not your sister. I do not share any of your DNA, nor do I ever wish to.
Chuck: Then I suggest you get new hand towels.
However, Chuck ended up being the one person Serena could run to when her perfect world was about to get shattered by the return of someone named "G." Of course, now we all know who G is and just how dangerous she could be, but back then she was an exciting mystery who sent gifts of porn, champagne, and cocaine.
As we anxiously await the arrival of one Miss Georgina Sparks, let's vote on World War B. Whose side were you on anyway?
