So Blair's decided on her next Powerful Womanhood mark -- Indra Nooyi, Yalie PepsiCo. Bajillionaire -- and as luck would have it, Eleanor Waldorf is dressing her tonight. So Blair plays on her mom's lack of a Jenny figure in her life to get there first, pretending to intern for her while secretly scheming. Eleanor finds out, and they go into all-out war mode... Until Dan sits B down for a little talk and Blair realizes her mom is not a bad sort of Powerful Woman to model herself on.
Eleanor knows better, though, so they decide jointly that B will be the next Wintour/Roitfeld, which leads into the whole W internship storyline to which we've been so looking forward. It's neat to watch a story where B does all her crazy scheming without Chuck involved; even sweeter to watch Dan and Blair's tentative/reluctant steps toward BFFhood. We'll see how long that lasts once he joins her at the magazine, I suppose.
