Episode 7 opens with Julien having dreams about her steamy night with Obie. Turns out the two got it on after the kiss at the protest. They meet up the following morning for breakfast, both feeling guilty with Julien saying that she can't lose her sister and suggesting keeping their distance from now on. The duo acts skittish around Zoya and is afraid that she may know or find out at any moment. Zoya invites them to thanksgiving but both of them refuse, stating that they have plans.
After Zoya asks Julien if she's still in love with Obie, Julien admits that she is and that the split may take time for her to process but is happy for her and Obie. She lies saying that Obie is unsure about how Zoya feels about her and that's why he's been distant, asking her to tell him how she really feels. She later warns Obie about it and tells her to tell Zoya how he feels about her. This later results in Obie telling Zoya that he loves her even when he doesn't. When Zoya shares the happy news with her sister, Julien is clearly unhappy about it and acts a bit unsupportive which Zoya calls her out for.
The news leads Julien to seek out Obie to confront him and the two share a passionate kiss after he says that he would do anything for her, that he loves her and always has. The lovers clearly still have unresolved feelings which saw Obie cheat on his girlfriend. The episode later saw Zoya at Thanksgiving dinner figure out that the two slept together with her being left heartbroken and stunned.
Episode 7 ends with Zoya telling Julien that the fact that it was her that slept with Obie is something she can't forgive. She tells her straight-faced - '' We're not sisters, we're not friends, we're not even enemies. We're nothing."
Looks like Julien crossed a line there's no coming back from...
Three episodes of 'Gossip Girl' Part 2 are now streaming on HBO Max with new episodes to drop next week.
