Recap: "Mingling with the Commoners"

On this episode of The City, Whitney learns that she and Olivia are better off as coworkers than friends, and Erin struggles with a long distance relationship after reconnecting with a past love.

Jay's band has a show coming up, so Whitney naturally invites Erin, but she also invites Olivia. Jay doesn't seem to understand why she'd want to come and even offers to "corner off a little area for her so she doesn't feel like she has to be with the commoners."

At Upper East Side restaurant La Goulue, Olivia tells her cousin Nevin that she has no idea what she's getting herself into by seeing Jay's band. But at least, as he reminds her, she'll be doing her good deed for the day.

The girls show up to Olivia's ready to go, but Olivia has something else in mind. After introducing her dog, Mr. Butler, she offers Whit and Erin some "champy" and wants to try on some outfits. The girl just doesn't get it when Whitney urges her to get ready so that they aren't late for Jay's show. Olivia insists that he wouldn't start without his girlfriend, after all. Finally they get to the Cutting Room. I'm sort of surprised by the music - saw Jay as the more brooding rock type, rather than the sing-songy folk type. JR, Erin's ex, also shows up. The band is pretty much done playing shortly after Whitney's arrival and she feels awful for being late. All Jay can say is a discreet "I told you so," when he tells her, "Well, what do you expect hanging out with people like that?"
