Meanwhile, Serena is trying to prepare for the SATs but agrees to go to dinner with her anyway. During the dinner, Georgina drugs Serena and brings her back to her hotel. The next day, Serena realizes she missed the SATs due to Georgina. As a result, she tells Georgina that she no longer wants to be friends and warns her not to contact her again. Angry at this, Georgina sends Serena a USB drive that contains a video taken of the night she spent with Pete Fairman, a mutual friend who overdosed on cocaine in a hotel room with Serena and Georgina. She also befriends Dan Humphrey and Vanessa Abrams under the guise of being a girl named Sarah from Portland.
Soon after, Georgina invites herself to a dinner with Serena, Lily, and Eric van der Woodsen; during which she outs Eric for being gay. Afterwards, she threatens Serena with the video, which sends Serena on a drinking binge (All About My Brother). The next day, Serena tells Blair, Nate, and Chuck about what happened the night of the video and the three vow to take Georgina down. Meanwhile, Georgina finds out Serena told everyone and seduces Dan as revenge (Woman on the Verge). Serena eventually tells Dan the whole truth, and Dan works with Blair to take Georgina down. They bring her parents back to town; and they announce they're going to send her to a boot camp for troubled girls as punishment (Much 'I Do' About Nothing).
Serena begins dating a new guy, Gabriel Edwards, who Blair and Chuck suspect is lying about his motive with her. When they learn Gabriel supposedly met Serena on the night she was out with Georgina (Desperately Seeking Serena), they go to see Georgina and find out if it really happened. They track her down at a bible camp where she has supposedly reformed her ways and become good (Southern Gentlemen Prefer Blondes). Georgina agrees to return with Chuck to the city and they team up with Blair, Nate, and Serena to out Gabriel and his accomplice, Poppy Lifton.

She then decides to go to Boston and befriend him (The Lost Boy). When she returns, she discovers that Dan has begun dating Olivia Burke, a famous actress who is attending NYU.

Dan comes shortly after and is asked by Rufus if he's sure Milo is his son. He asks for a paternity test and Georgina shows paperwork from a doctor that says he is the father. As a result, Dan signs the birth certificate. Right after he signs, she leaves him a note explaining that she is going to the spa. Meanwhile, Rufus figures out that it is biologically impossible for Milo to be Dan's son due to the blood type he is (Double Identity). In the days after, Dan discovers that Georgina is not at a spa and tries to track her down. He initially considers giving Milo to an orphanage, but later decides to keep him, with the help of Vanessa. However, Georgina then returns and tells him the real story: that Milo is actually the son of a Russian man named Sergè, whom Georgina hooked up with on an airplane. But when his wife Oksana found out Georgina was pregnant, she hired some people to kill her. In order to save herself and Milo from being murdered, she set Dan up to look like the father.

Appearance and style[edit | edit source]
Georgina is medium height and slim with dark brown hair. Her style is similar to that of Jenny Humphrey's, with the same punk princess flair. She often times wears dark colored clothes, except for special occasions, where she sometimes wears light colored dresses. Her style noticeably changed when she returned to the UES from bible camp and Blair made her over.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Georgina originally came onto the show as a scheming sociopath; someone who was even more cold and callous than Blair. However, as the series progressed, and after she had Milo, Georgina mellowed out and began to show that she has the capacity to be a compassionate person. When she made her first appearance, she quickly became an enemy of everyone's but by the end of the show it seems to be as if she made amends with all the main characters.
Michelle Trachtenberg described Georgina as being that "evil bitch from hell."
