Just like when she dreams Vanessa is an ambitious social climber disguised as a clueless ingenue in All About Eve, this time she dreams of a character threatening her life and status. The movie is Wait Until Dark, and the character is a blind housewife, played by Audrey Hepburn, who's being chased by a drug dealer.
Of course, Blair initially interprets the dealer to be Chuck — blinded by love! — but really it's lil Jenny Humphrey from the Brooklyn block. The ominous dream augurs the return of Jenny to the Upper East Side, where she proves to be — this week, anyway — a nightmare for Blair.
But what's with all the dreaming she's the lead in an old movie? Is it to show she reads the best-movies-of-all-time lists and queues up the classics? A reflection of her narcissism? Or just a semiclever writing tool that makes good TV?
