Ready for the Chair-fest? I have to admit, I was super excited to see Chuck (Ed Westwick) finally come to terms with his feelings and run back to Blair (Leighton Meester). But it’s so unfair that he gets his chance only when Prince Louis (Hugo Becker) messes up just once when he’s messed up plenty. On that note, I can’t not love the underdog, lonely boy Dan (Penn Badgley). His Dad had to bring up the fact that he hasn’t dated anyone since the kiss he had with Blair last spring. Is he about to throw himself at her as well? Hey, there’s already two, why not add a third?
Blair runs to Brooklyn to camp out with Dan and at first we think he’s trying to get his moment with her. He helps her write a pro-con list as the paparazzi and Gossip Girl continue to chase the story. Dan steals her away to a mystery place saying, “I think I know how to make you happy.” What happens? He takes her to Charlie (Kaylee DeFer)’s party and gets her alone with Chuck. And we finally get it — they both profess their love for each other and run out with Nate (Chace Crawford).
But somehow they went in the wrong cars and as the paparazzi are aggressively hunting Blair and Chuck’s car for a shot of them together, all of a sudden the car crashes right as Blair’s deciding whether or not she wants to hit Switzerland or Tokyo to raise the baby. What baby? Or should we say, what about Chuck? Either way, it looks like this family is about to fall apart before it could even begin.
PS all the night gowns and suits look absolutely ridiculous in the vastly lit hospital. With no evening light to shield her guilt Charlie/Ivy tells Rufus everything. She tells him she tipped Gossip Girl on Blair and Chuck’s whereabouts hoping the paparazzi would crash the party (as they rightly did) just to save her sorry ass from Max’s evil revenge. “I’m sorry, it’s me. I’m the fraud.” Now this time she better mean it when she says she’s leaving and not coming back, because I seriously feel like she’s the ‘Girl Who Cried Rhodes.’
And it looks like Nate’s story is about to get more interesting. Whatever his family has set is all out of whack when Grandfather calls up Diana (Elizabeth Hurley) to come back to town. Guess there’s only room for one conniving bitch next season.
