I also wholly appreciate Eleanor swanning in wearing a poncho-shawl contraption that's animal print. Margaret Colin is still so stunning, and great casting. What follows is a strange scene where Eleanor is basically trying to tell Blair that her scheming dark side is going to be her downfall -- which is not terrible advice -- but they whiff it slightly by having the two of them imply, totally randomly, that her dark side is sexual in nature. For a second I thought this was going to be all about her obsession with Chuck Bass, but no, so I'm not sure where the "sexually deviant" thing applies. Clearly it's just that Blair is too willing to connive, so... really strange scene. But the point is: Eleanor is displeased, and Blair is On Notice.
