'Twas a dry Thanksgiving in
Gossip Girl land. Dear former druggie Serena woke up in a stupor, bottle of vodka at her bedside, in an outer borough. For that offense, she was committed to the Ostroff Center against her will. Her mother, Lily, drank a bit to cope with S's "relapse." (You see, casual viewers, Serena's overdose was plotted by Juliet—no, you don't need to know who that is—and that Goth sourpuss Jenny Humphrey.) Because most of the action took place in rehab, there was nary another drop of strong stuff. Blair sent a pumpkin pie peace offering to her estranged beloved Chuck, but those two are addicts of a different sort.
