Watch out Serena, there is new “It” girl on the scene — and she doesn’t have a fancy Upper East Side address. Jenny Humphrey (Taylor Momsen), who has been toiling away for Eleanor Waldorf, is officially on everyone’s radar. After a heavily photographed night out with a model/socialite and her photographer friend, Little J becomes a downtown legend. And when Eleanor takes Jenny’s designs as her own, the ambitious Brooklynite stomps off with her dresses.

Her new friends convince Jenny to start her own line — and then take her top off. Luckily, Nate Archibald (Chace Crawford) is there to stop the bra party before it begins. Jenny’s internship might be over, but it looks like her love life is just beginning. The up-and-coming designer shares a steamy kiss with Nate in the middle of the street. And just like that, Jenny’s back on top!

Quick question: What’s the deal with Jenny’s dark eyeliner? Isn’t the “heroin chic” look a bit much for a 15-year-old? Where is her dad Rufus?

Meanwhile, the game between Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) and Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick) is still hot and heavy. At Serena van der Woodsen’s (Blake Lively) suggestion Blair enlists the help of Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley) to get Chuck. Blair gets an ‘A’ for effort — the white garter under her uniform, the dropped drink, the attention to her neck — but her attempts at seduction were still not enough to trap Chuck. Blair chickens out at the last second, but it’s so evident these are in love. Chuck and Blair couldn’t profess their love to each other, but at least Chuck and Vanessa (Jessica Szohr) didn’t hook up. But the question remains, will the king and queen of the Upper East finally unite?

After a quick conversation on Nate’s doorstep last week, Serena and Dan are suddenly BFFs. It’s cute that Dan tries to help Blair get Chuck, we just can’t help but wonder why he didn’t try this hard when he was dating Serena. Maybe if he did, she wouldn’t be ready to rekindle a childhood camp romance with artist Aaron (John Patrick Amedori). Maybe Aaron will understand Serena and her world more than Dan. The only obstacle: an unidentified girl on the back of his bike. Something tells us she won’t be a match for our Serena.

Tell us: Did Jenny make the right decision by quitting Eleanor’s? Can she make it on her own? Will Chuck and Blair make it work?Giovanni Rufino/THE CW
