The Carrie Diaries comes over all Gossip Girl in this week’s episode, ‘Dangerous Territory’, as Carrie goes to her first Upper East Side dinner party. The older version of the character could never stand the endemic pretension of the scene, and we now know that she was the same as a teenager.
The invite for the party comes from old family friend George Silver, and is accepted just as soon as Carrie gets wind of Sebastian’s new relationship. We all saw it coming, but that doesn’t make the site of Carrie’s ex and Donna making out in front of her, bold as brass, any less annoying. He’s obviously acting dumb and liking the attention he’s getting from both girls, but this is the beginning of all-out war for his two suitors. Even Maggie is getting involved, as she stages a sit-in at the diner so as not to let Donna infringe on any more of Carrie’s territory.
