Dan convinces Serena to break up with Colin because he still wants her, and because he feels she deserves a guy who will do anything for her.
She does this but it backfires on Dan. He quits Columbia to be with her. However, later he ends it after a plot to expose them was blown up.
Juliet planned to out Serena and Colin, but had a change of heart after he told her to let her brother Ben sit in jail and pay for what he did.
However, the photos got out because Nate and Vanessa set her up. He distracted her with a coffee date while she broke in and took the pics.
Nate and Juliet got back together, though, because she admitted she's poor and that's why she sneaks around. So they go to the ballet.
There, Vanessa tries to take the photos to the dean and expose Serena, but he's already quit, and Blair puts the flash drive into champagne.
You could say that plan fizzled. Naturally, Nate and Juliet are over now, since his plan to break into her apartment was exposed, as was her shady spy job.
Colin leaves, flustered, and Serena calls Dan to lament what happened. He rushes over to be with her, but Nate finds her first, and begs for another chance.
Juliet and Vanessa enlist a new warrior in their battle - little J! The three outcasts are going to team up and take down the NJBC? We doubt it, but it'll be fun to watch.
Meanwhile, Chuck and Blair have been having MAHS (massive amounts of hate sex) and both tried in their own way to break the habit. But it looks like that failed.
Which is a good thing.
