Furious, Sage goes to the only person who could possibly intercept an Upper East Side proposal: Blair Waldorf. Blair is desperate for an "it" girl to wear her dress design to that night's cotillion ball, so she strikes a deal: if sage agrees to wear a Waldorf dress, Blair will make sure Steven doesn't get a chance to propose. Blair calls Lily to convince her that Serena isn't capable of making a serious decision after her disastrous dating history, prompting Lily to tell Steven he should rethink the proposal. At the same time, Sage leaks a photo to Gossip Girl of Steven leaving a jeweler's empty-handed. Seriously, why can't anyone on the Upper East Side successfully get married? We're still waiting for redemption after the Blair-Louis fiasco last season.
