Blair skips the Passover Seder for the rehearsal dinner, where an angry Nate makes a snarling toast about his grandfather turning his father in to the authorities. Gramps snarls at Blair to fix it, and later after making up with Nate, finks on his deal with Blair. Now, why a rich and powerful adult has it in for a 17-year-old girl, I don’t know — seriously, what’s in it for him? Nate, being the dope that he is, sends Blair away and then seeks solace from Chuck of all people. You can say a lot of things about Chuck, and I have, but you have to give him credit for accepting Blair for who she is. Nate finally makes his way to Blair’s apartment to make up. And finally, a chastened Blair agrees to let Cyrus help her get an interview at NYU — a proposition she snottily turned her nose up at earlier — which comes in handy since her tween dream cardboard cut-out will be at Columbia next year.

Also:

  • Good for Jenny for socking it to Chuck. And he finally apologized for basically attacking her last year.
  • Rufus decides to sell the gallery to pay for Dan’s school — he doesn’t enjoy selling art any more. So what’s he going to do now? Live off his girlfriend’s enormous fortune, perhaps?
  • The Passover jokes were quite funny, in a groaning, I-can’t-believe-they-just-said-that kind of way.
  • “All shopping leads to shoe shopping.” Right on, Lily.

What did you think? Have you ever mistakenly thought you married someone in another language? Or kicked Elijah out of his seat? Come on, Upper East Siders: ‘fess up.
