Previously on Gossip Girl Reboot Episode 8, Gossip Girl leaked the accusation of Davis taking advantage of a woman nearly a decade ago. Julien tapped into Aki to gain information about the accuser via his father and initially, it seemed to be a baseless claim.

However, another post from Gossip Girl cast more doubt on Davis’ innocence. The ordeal led Julien to look back at her father’s old Blackberry and discover he might have drugged and slept with the woman, she was distraught by the findings, confronting her father, leaving the home, breaking down, yet Zoya was there for her.

Warning… Spoilers below!

On Gossip Girl Reboot Episode 9, GG posted about an accusation that Julien was complicit in her father’s wrongdoings


Julien and Zoya sought legal advice (while Nick attended) as ammunition against Davis. They were shocked that the text messages were not strong enough for the case as the women admitted to drinking voluntarily. It was he say she say. She advised allowing the women (and if there were others) to come forward on their own. Julien wanted to make a statement, however, the attorney advised her radio silence as this can blowback on her.

Kate had been blocked from GG’s account but borrowed a device to see the recent post and was outraged at the literature. She confronted the culprit, Scott, about the writing and the accusations- it could ruin a kid’s life. He confronted her that she only got off on the excitement Gossip Girl rather than being truly concerned for Julien.

Davis used social media to track Julien down as she was exiting the law firm, he wanted to talk. He confessed he didn’t mean to take advantage of the women. Meaning, it wasn’t intentional. He also made her ponder the alternative, illustrating that none of them came forward and what if the messages weren’t sent in fear but in question. He pleaded for her to be by his side during the ordeal. Of course, Gossip Girl received and posted a pic of them talking…

Open Relationship

Max ambushed Gideon and Roy to be in the same room but they saw through his matchmaking.

When Audrey got to school, she explained to the crew that Julien was off-grid until further notice.

Rex Huntington greeted Aki and congratulated him for coming out. He was straightforward and asked him out even offered sex on the first date.

Rex immediately started sexting Aki and he showed Audrey. She asked does he want to hook up with him and he said no! She asked did he like Rex, Aki did but he’s with her. She took his phone and texted Rex that he’s down for it. Suddenly, Max overheard and wanted in but realized their attention was now aimed at Rex.

Kate saw the new post and knew Scott was behind it. She tried to plead with Jordan to control him but he wasn’t listening. Jordan redirected that she talks him down from the aggressive posts. But their relationship was complicated as had a one-night stand.

Double Date

Aki planned to meet Rex outside a coffee shop and Audrey lurked inside. She met a cute young man, Jamison, while waiting and he gave her his number. Aki came inside to gesture they leave since Rex hadn’t shown up and noticed she had a phone number, questioning her about it.

She admitted why should he be the only one getting attention. Aki was uncomfortable with it and they had an open conversation about it and suddenly Rex arrived. She didn’t want to deny his happiness.

Audrey returned to the coffee shop waiting on Jameson to get off work and Aki spotted her, asking why she was still lingering. He confronted her that he would only move forward if she wanted him to. Audrey forced him to go on his date while she went on hers. They both ended up kissing their new mates

Live In Your Truth

When Max got home early he noticed an extra pair of shoes, assuming they were Roy’s but they were a new man younger, Raul, Gideon had over. Max and Gideon spoke in private and he was furious his father was dating someone other than Roy. Max was so upset he called Roy to inform him what Gideon was doing. Roy decided to pick Max up.

Roy had a heartfelt talk with his son about his upbringing and how he suppressed his sexuality to gain his mother’s love. Gideon helped him realize his true happiness by coming out. But when Gideon started his transition, it pushed him back into a dark place. He realized Gideon needed time and he would wait for him…

Don’t Speak Your Truth

Julien called Zoya to help her determine whether her father was guilty or innocent. Since none of the women would come forward, she reached out to them and one responded. She needed to distract the news crews camping outside her apartment exits. Suddenly, Obie came to pick them up but was spotted. GG posted it and gave made keeping tabs on JC a challenge among her followers.

Julien got an idea to keep them off her trail. She gave her friends her passwords and they posed as being with her in multiple locations simultaneously. That threw the scent off but only temporarily.

Julien and Zoya met with a woman named Carmen. She told them she had no memory of that night with Davis but the woman wasn’t interested in pursuing the case. Suddenly, the media arrived but Obie decoyed them. The girls slipped away on the subway.

Later on, when Audrey and Aki met up they admitted their kiss but didn’t want an open relationship. Suddenly, they got an alert of Gossip Girl going Live! Though it was other followers she invited to stream on her live and Julien was spotted.

Julien got a message from Riley and wanted to talk. Nick saw the live and called Zoya advising from a legal perspective that Riley shouldn’t come forward… not now at least.

Julien met Riley at an art gallery. Kate and Jordan tracked them down and went live as GG. Riley told Julien she was coming forward. But Julien advised her to wait as it would prove that Lauren had lied on Riley’s behalf- causing legal blowback on her. They would be discredited and Davis would get off.

Suddenly, Nick joined the two and explained from a legal perspective why she should wait to come forward. Julien was torn apart as she had to go against her preachings and advise another woman to not speak her truth. Again, Zoya was there for her sister.
