They Shoot Humphreys, Don't They?
Gossip Girl Season 3 Episode 9 (11/09/09)
Olivia gets a big offer to shoot a sequel to Endless Nights (or really the fourth installment) and thinks about bailing on NYU. Vanessa tries to convince her to stay in school by dangling beer pong in front of her.
Dan obviously wants his girlfriend to stay too. But Olivia thinks she still has to take the movie, where she feels most at home and they are likely paying her millions of dollars.
So they find a list of things every college kid must do. And begin crossing them off. You know where this is leading.
At the end of the episode, Olivia kisses Dan, Dan kisses Olivia, Olivia kisses Vanessa and then Dan kisses Vanessa. Hot!
The next morning, they are lying in bed naked and as Olivia sleeps, the cameras pan to her phone and we learn that her movie may be off.
That could mean trouble for Dan when he faces the fallout!
The other Humphrey, Jenny faces a big challenge. It’s her society debut at Cotillion and she needs the hottest date in the city.
She’s mastered ruling her school, but wants to take on the entire Upper East Side. Eric pretends to take the high road, helping Jenny dance and find an escort.
But when her actual dream escort, Graham Collins comes through unbeknownst to J, Eric, upset at the queen she’s become, hijacks her phone and hits delete!
Jenny heads to her ball all tarted up ready for her hot date. But Eric and Blair team up, steal the date, make-over new girl Kyra and vow to make her the Queen and dethrone J.
That starts by leaving her dateless at Cotillion. That's pretty much the height of embarrassment. But J fights back and walks down the steps with none other than Nate, trumping all the debs with an "epic" college guy.
Eric is pissed Jenny prevailed and vows to take her down harder next time and actually finish her off when he does.
Serena gives Nate’s Congressman-elect cousin Tripp a sales pitch to get hired as an aide in his office. He hires her on the spot.
Why? The obvious attraction there. Instead of starting Monday, she pops into the married Tripp's office on Friday night with food and a near-miss moment.
Feeling the heat, Tripp confesses ... he wants her. Whoa.
At the same time, Chuck and Nate have been trying to strike a peace accord between Serena and Blair. Fake apology texts and cards to meet are sent by Chuck — who, in total Chuck fashion for B and S to be stuck in an elevator to work it out.
Chuck’s elevator lock-up plan works. Serena confesses her crush on Tripp and her summer search for her dad and Blair feels terrible for her.
Serena vows to Blair she’ll give up her job with Tripp since he’s married and all. But when she heads over to quit, Tripp won’t accept.
After another sexy moment with no touching and few words exchanged, Serena agrees to stay on as his employee.
And even though Serena’s dad didn’t want to see her, he seems to want to see or talk to her mom. Lily finds a letter from "Dr. van der Woodsen" on her desk as the credits roll.
