The arrival of a new dance mom and her daughter create a huge stir amongst the girls and the dance moms. With her broken foot healed, Paige gets the go-ahead from the doctor to dance in this weeks important competition.
The show centers on FBI special agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) who work on cases linked to the paranormal, called X-Files. Mulder is a believer in the paranormal, while the skeptical Scully has been assigned to debunk his work. In this episode, Dudley, Arkansas, is the site of the latest investigation for Mulder and Scully, who are sent to find a missing poultry inspector. The case takes a twist when another poultry worker is shot after she goes insane, leading Mulder to believe that certain townspeople are cannibals.
\"Our Town\" was written by future executive producer Frank Spotnitz and directed by Rob Bowman. The episode was Spotnitz's first stand-alone episode for the show, and because of that he decided to write about \"the most despicable and vile things he could imagine\", which in this case was cannibalism occurring at a chicken processing plant. Spotnitz was also inspired by the thriller Bad Day at Black Rock (1955) (about a town that holds a terrible secret) and an article he read while a student at University of California, Los Angeles about salamander cannibalism and how such behavior makes the animals sick. When the episode was being scripted, these ideas were later supplemented with medical research about kuru, a very rare, incurable neurodegenerative disorder that was formerly common among the Fore people of Papua New Guinea.
Bloom started off as an insecure girl at the beginning of the series because of her ignorance of her true origins and her strange, yet surprisingly potent powers. Later on, as she learned more about magic and herself, she grew increasingly curious about her past and whom her biological parents are. An escapist by nature, she has a tendency to run away when things get too hard or confusing for her, and can also be impatient and stubborn, with a short temper. Bloom was also impulsive at times, which led to some very bad experiences for both her and her friends. Her greatest strength and greatest weakness was her status as the guardian of the Dragon's Flame. While the Dragon Flame made her arguably the most powerful fairy in the Magic Dimension, it also consistently drew numerous enemies to her such as the Trix, Darkar, Valtor, and the Ancestral Witches.
Dark Bloom has the same powers that Bloom had by that moment, although mixed with dark magic. She displayed the basic first-level skill of levitation when turning Timmy upside down in midair. Her magical aura transformed from fiery orange to dark purple. Bloom also seemed to have better reflexes than her normal self, as she dodges all her friends' attacks with ease. In fact, none of the other Winx girls abilities worked on her. Even her bonded Pixie's kiss was unable to break Darkar's spell for long.
Lily exits a car at the police station while inside, Blair frets about Serena's wellbeing in jail. Nate can't believe Serena's own mother had her arrested and Lily then enters the police station to have her released. At the loft, Dan and Jenny tell Vanessa about Rufus' failed proposal attempt. When he enters the room, they quickly change the subject to prom and how they're planning to skip it. Dan asks about the investment and Rufus simply says that it's over because Lily had Serena arrested. He then suggests that they stay out of it and let them work it out on their own. Back at the police station, Lily has flashbacks to her own run ins with the law on her way to see Serena. However, when she sees Serena, she learns that she called CeCe to bail her out. The next day, Lily asks CeCe why she's still in town. CeCe asks why Lily is so mad at her and Lily says that it's because she told Rufus about their child. She gets defensive and says that Rufus deserved to know. Eric jumps in and explains that their son is dead. Lily then says she's off to bring Serena breakfast in bed to start their healing process but Eric and CeCe say she's not home. At the Waldorf's, Blair asks Serena why she's still in jail. Serena explains that Lily didn't think she was old enough to make her own choices so she decided on her own to stay. She wishes Blair a good prom with Nate, and they hang up. Afterwards, Dorota tells Blair that the dry cleaners ruined her dress but her replacement dress arrived from Paris. Blair opens the box and is surprised to see that it looks exactly like the one in the prom scrapbook she made as a child. Meanwhile, Nate tells Chuck that the florist has no more peonies, his limo got rented out, her dress was ruined, and his hotel room was cancelled. He asks if Chuck sabotaged his plans but Chuck swears he didn't.
At prom, Serena and Dan arrive and greet Blair. When she walks away, Dan admits that the prom setup is pretty nice. Serena asks him to dance with her. He accepts and they head to the middle of the dance floor. Not too much later, Blair yells at Chuck and accuses him of sabotaging the prom vote because she saw him with a bunch of slips with Nelly's name checked. She also adds that he sabotaged everything else and he says nothing. Penelope then gets onstage and is about to announce Prom King and Queen. She opens the envelope brought to her and is displeased to announce that the winners are Blair and Nate. In the audience, Nelly mutters that that's impossible as Blair and Nate go to the stage. While they go up, Dan wonders who even voted for Blair to win. Chuck reveals that he did, many times, and didn't put the Nelly ballots in because he took them out. He also says that he sabotaged her corsage because the dress looks better without it and he reserved the penthouse at The Plaza for her and Nate to ensure she had a perfect night. Meanwhile, Lily stops CeCe before she leaves her hotel. Lily says she loves her, despite the things she's done over the course of her life. She also says that she forgives her and the two hug. Back at prom, Nate and Blair slow dance. She admits that she feels sad despite it being the supposed best day of high school. She also says that she feels like something is ending and she got to attend prom with Nate, something she's wanted since she was twelve. He asks why she's talking in the past and she just asks him to hold her until the song ends. They kiss one last time and continue dancing. Afterwards, Serena finds Blair sitting alone outside. Blair shares that she and Nate broke up because he feels like her high school boyfriend. Serena says that despite her being in jail, she had a good night because she and Dan made up and she now knows that Lily did what she did out of love. They realize that they survived childhood, their mothers, mean girls, boyfriend, high school together and that they're sisters for life. Meanwhile, Lily rides home in her car and gets a text from Serena, apologizing. She smiles and looks out the window as she reflects on her life and what is coming next.
In April 16th 1983, Lily drives a car along the coastline of Malibu, California. She stops at a gas station where she calls her father, Rick Rhodes, as his office at Rhodes Records. Once she gets him on the phone, she invites him to lunch since she's in LA. He asks why she isn't in Santa Barbara at school, but she ignores his question and says she'll met him at his favorite restaurant. After she hangs up, she looks over the letter from her boarding school notifying her parents of her expulsion. At the restaurant, Lily arrives and sits down with Rick. She admits Christmas was weird without him and he laughs before saying he's sorry he couldn't be there. Before she can say anything about getting kicked out of school, he reveals that he already knows. Lily asks how he knew and he admits CeCe told him. At that moment, CeCe arrives and sits down at the table. She and Rick greet each other coldly before she informs Lily that Rick convinced the school to let her back in. Shocked, Lily says that she wanted to get expelled because she wants to be around her dad. She worries that when she grows up she won't be a part of his life anymore, and he reassures her that that will never happen. He also says he's too busy with work to parent her and that he has to leave town for business that night. He kisses her goodbye and leaves. She chases after him and he tells her that she needs to stay out of the city so she won't turn out like her sister, Carol. Lily says she agrees that she shouldn't turn out like Carol, but she won't because she doesn't crave the need to walk her own path. Rick's car is then brought to the front by the valet and he leaves, promising to call her when he's home. CeCe exits the restaurant and says it's time to go home. Lily says she'll follow her back and they get into their separate cars. However, CeCe drives in one direction while Lily drives in the other.
Lily discovers that they're planning on crashing a house party that involves them crawling through a closet window. Carol explains that the director of their music video accepted their payment but then jacked up his fee and is now holding the video hostage until they give him more. Lily makes a crack about her investment in the fanny pack and Carol replies that she can stay behind while they all go to the party since she loves following rules. When she's gone, Lily asks Owen if not wanting to break into a house means she's a stuck up goody two shoes and he answers that it means she's not the life of the party. She asks where the bar is and they go downstairs together. Afterwards, Carol catches a glance of Lily having fun with Owen and smiles to herself. Outside, Carol confronts the director; Keith van der Woodsen. He tells her that she looks amazing but she only asks about the video. He admits that he only jacked up the fee so she would call him and they could talk. She replies that he has a girlfriend and there's nothing to say. Inside, Lily tries to encourage Owen to dance with her. As they dance, a guy bumps into her and she is pushed into Owen's arms. He says she's totally falling in love with him, mocking her speech from earlier, and as they're about to kiss, a crash comes from outside. They go outside and see Carol arguing with Keith. He tells her she can either pay him in cash or do something with him on Saturday. Keith then tells everyone that Carol slept with him, and Lily asks if she really did. Carol admits that she did but didn't know he had a girlfriend and that she broke it off when she found out. She continues that Lily probably thinks she should ask their parents for the money but she's not going to, as she'll figure something else out. She promises that it's okay and Lily says it's not. She goes up to Keith and tells him that no one treats them that way. He replies that they called the cops because they're trespassing. As they're walking away, Keith's girlfriend, Veronica, makes a crack about them being trash from the valley. Keith tells the girls not to fight over him and then is punched by Carol's friend Shep. As they run away, Owen gets trapped into fighting several other guys and handles them until he's grabbed by one. Not knowing what to do since Carol ran, Lily jumps on the guy's back and hits him with her bag, yelling at him to leave Owen alone. 59ce067264
