Tonight it's a "totally 80's flashback!" (The CW's words, not mine), and they make good on their promise right away: we open on young Lily. She's in LA, and calls her father Rick's office from a pay phone. She asks if he has time to catch up, but he needs to go to London. She looks at the documents in front her saying that she got expelled from private school, tells him where and when to meet her, and then hangs up. Flash forward to present Lily, who was reminiscing about this whole flashback in her car as she made her way to jail to bail out Serena.
Inside the police station, Blair, Chuck and Nate sit around and worry about Serena's fate. Blair is stressed, but the boys don't seem too concerned. Lily shows up, and Blair gives her the stink eye from across the hall.
Over in Brooklyn, Dan and Jenny fill in Vanessa about Rufus's non-proposal to Lily. They decide that they will stay in during Prom and watch scary movies. Rufus walks in and tells them all that his investment money is gone and Lily had Serena arrested, but that the kids should just stay out of it and let it all go. He leaves.
We then get a montage of split-second 80's memories as Lily walks in and sees Serena in the... jail waiting room, is it? They fight about who gets to make the big girl decisions around here. "When I'm a mother I will be nothing like you," Serena says. "I would rather give my kids up for adoption than be like you. Oh wait, you did that." It turns out Serena is the one who sends Lily back in time with the massive flux-capacitor power of her ZINGS. CeCe walks in, because Serena used her one phone call on her. "Ironic, isn't it?" CeCe says. Well, not exactly, since her boyfriend is a thief and her mother put her in jail. But before anyone can explain what irony means to CeCe, it's time to go back in time again.
