Before I even pushed play on my DVR tonight I was wondering, "Is Jack really Chuck's dad?" I think that is the question on everyone's mind after last week's episode.
I couldn't help but laugh in the opening scene when Dorota
complained to Blair that Vanya racks up their internet bill by playing
World of Warcraft.
Over at the Empire I was thrilled to see that Chuck has
traded in his red, onesie sweat suit for a much daintier pair of gold
and navy, paisley pajamas. All is right in the world again.
of returning to original form, Dan tries to be supportive of Blair
returning to her scheming ways and he calls her, "OGB - Original
gangsta Blair." Oh boy. The words "gangsta" and "Blair" do not belong
in the same sentence.
Meanwhile, Nate has Diana's datebook and is trying to crack the
code. Lola, Nate and Chuck are hot on the trail when they involve
Serena. Serena claims to have seen a decoder book, but later we learn
she invented that decoy as part of her conspiring with Diana. In return
for the favor, Diana offers up Gossip Girl's cell phone number.
Later, back at the Empire, Dan calls Blair to check on her and
she says, "I'm at the Empire with Chuck, Nate, Serena and Serena
Light." Ha! Poor Lola.
Upstairs Chuck finds Jack, Nate and Lola find Diana and Blair
opens a door and exclaims, "No! It can't be." We don't see what is
behind the door but I would bet every penny to my name it is Bart. I
have been predicting this for weeks now.
A few minutes later Nate and Lola admit to Serena that they
tricked her and got Gossip Girl her laptop back. When Serena tries to
call Gossip Girl's cell phone, the number is disconnected. Personally,
I have never cared who the real Gossip Girl is. Do you?
At the end of the episode Blair heads to Brooklyn to meet up
with Dan. Dan lies to her about why he isn't going to Rome and then he
says those three precious words, "I love you." Too bad Blair doesn't
say them back. Ouch, Lonely Boy.
In the closing scene of the episode Chuck goes back into the private club, opens the party room door and BOOM! Bart is there!
In previews for next week Dan asks Blair to go to Italy with him
(apparently he's having second thoughts about declining the program)
but she is too busy gallivanting with Chuck. The love triangle
