Is every episode based on a party? Blair and company are headed to a masquerade ball. The show opens on a gopher. No not an actual gopher, Blair’s gopher, Jenny. Jenny runs around town to pick up Blair’s outfit for the party. Blair and Serena talk excessively about Dan and Nate and the ball. Dan receives a call from an old flame named Vanessa who surprises him at his apartment. Serena calls Dan in the meantime to ask him to the ball. In the background, Serena overhears Vanessa. Dan lies and says its Jenny, just as Jenny arrives at Blair’s room to drop off her dress. Uh-oh Dan is busted and Serena needs a new date!
