Despite being made into movies over 20 years earlier than the prequel trilogy, the events of the original trilogy begin 19 years after the concluding events of the prequel trilogy. The three movies in the original trilogy are Star Wars Episode 4: A New Hope, Star Wars Episode 5: The Empire Strikes Back, and Star Wars Episode 6: The Return of the Jedi.

The first movie in the trilogy begins with Darth Vader having almost completed his massive space station, known as the Death Star. The Death Star has been built in order to allow Vader and Emperor Palpatine (Darth Sidious) to crush the growing rebellion against their evil empire.

Vader catches one of the rebellion’s leaders, Princess Leia, who has stolen plans to the Death Star. Luckily, these plans are stored in the droid R2-D2 who, with his partner C-3PO, is able to escape to the planet Tatooine. Here, the droids are found by Luke Skywalker. As Luke is trying to clean up R2-D2 he triggers a message that Leia has left for Obi Wan Kenobi, who happens to live on Tatooine.

Luke and the droids seek out Obi Wan Kenobi. Obi Wan tells Luke of his father’s greatness (initially telling Luke that his father died in a battle with Darth Vader) and begins to teach him about the force. Obi Wan and Luke hire Han Solo and his partner Chewbacca the wookie to take them to join the rebels in their fight against Vader.

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 caught 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.
