Juliet, Jenny and Vanessa plan to take down Serena.
Jenny yoinks the SIM card from her phone, which allows the girls to receive all of Serena’s incoming calls and texts and reply to them as if they were Serena.

When Serena finds out about the check, she and Lily get into an old-fashioned blowout fight.

Blair and Chuck are still sleeping together but claiming that they’re not in a real relationship.

Blair’s also mad, since she thinks S was trying to poach her spot at Mrs. Archibald’s charity. S
Blair then decides, after Anne tells her to hit the bricks, that they can’t date again after all. She wants to achieve things on her own, not be Chuck Bass’ girlfriend.
Chuck, somehow, understands and seems at peace with this.
