This Chuck-Blair battle ends up being something of a draw, since Chamberlain decides to swear off Columbia altogether after overhearing the pair outline their increasingly ridiculous schemes.
Her words, unfortunately, give Chuck an idea. He’s last seen calling up the admissions office at Parsons, saying that he needs to speak with Tim Gunn about enrolling a new student: Jenny Humphrey.
Serena, meanwhile, finds that she has bigger things to worry about than running behind schedule. Someone has leaked a false rumor to Gossip Girl, saying that S has an STD.
To further complicate matters, Nate drags Dan along with him as moral support. Someone takes a picture of D at Student Health Services and sends that to Gossip Girl. Vanessa then sees the pic and gets paranoid that her boyfriend and Serena slept together last spring.
Juliet, of course, is behind the rumor. She and her imprisoned associate are plotting to bring S down and leave her with “nothing.”
At a party at Hamilton House, Juliet convinces Vanessa to nab Serena’s clutch from the coat check.
The professor, of course, happens to be at the Hamilton House party and the Dean, who is with the prof, informs her that she could be expelled for sending such an outrageous email.
Vanessa overhears everything, and she tells Juliet that they have to speak up and save Serena. J, though, ends up pining everything on Vanessa, and the evidence - S' phone is in Vanessa’s purse, she had a motive, and so on - is so strong that everyone believes Juliet.
Vanessa packs an overnight bag and leaves Dan’s loft to spend some time with her parents. Serena, meanwhile, goes to a bar to drown her sorrows.
Serena: B, can I talk to you for a minute?
Blair: Yes. [to Minion #1] Five paces behind. For privacy. [to Minion #2] Ten for you.
