In All About My Brother, a gossip wars flares between Blair and Jenny as each tries to outdo the other with ridiculous and embarrassing half-truths. While the gossip war between the two may provide entertainment, it really acts as fuel to the fire when it leads to the revelation of two out of three huge secrets that are dropped in this episode. Serena, Asher, and Eric are the ones keeping back secrets, but when Jenny finds herself up in the mess she dives right in instead of running the other way. Blair and Georgina play roles that they know best, instigators.
Dan finds out about Asher’s secret relationship, with an unknown male, and tries to warn Jenny after realizing that Asher is not about to own up to it. When Gossip Girl gets wind of the rumor Jenny finds out the truth directly from Asher who makes light of the situation and acts like Jenny was supposed to already know. Instead of walking away from the entire situation Jenny thinks only of keeping up with her friends and decides to play along with Asher.
Meanwhile, Georgina has befriended Dan while pretending to be an out of town by the name of Sarah. “Sarah” convinces Dan into introducing her to Serena, but before that can happen Georgina weasels her way into a family dinner where she outs Eric to his family. Eric and Blair then team up to out the lying Asher at his own party, and when Jenny still continues to cover up for Asher, Eric admits that it was him seen with Asher earlier in the day.
Dan and Sarah manage to get that meet up with Serena who is shocked to find out what Georgina has been up to since she last saw her. After Georgina scares Serena off, Serena goes to Blair and spills her big secret; she killed someone.
