Nate finally believes Lola that Serena is Gossip Girl. Serena is getting a little too attached to the keyboard and trying to play both sides - her friends and Diana - as she searches for gossip tips and the identity of Gossip Girl. And what will she do now that she's locked out of the site by Manhattan's one and only source for gossip? Dan has writers block, which could be solved by a trip to the Institute of Arts and Letters in Rome, but he doesn't trust Blair enough to leave for the summer. Meanwhile Blair is searching for OGB (Original Gangsta Blair...I wonder if she's as fun as Drunk!Blair?) which calls for some scheming as she joins Chuck, Nate and Lola on the hunt for the truth about Chuck's parentage. They should have called her earlier. B has her own cipher for heaven's sake - she's born to scheme her way to the heart of any mystery. At the heart of this particular mystery is CHUCK'S LONG DEAD FATHER BART BASS WHO IS NOT ACTUALLY DEAD. What??!!?? I know. Now he has two dead parents who aren't actually dead. No wonder he's got some abandonment issues.
Party du Jour
A top secret sexy party full of businessmen leering at ladies in lingerie. It took a cipher, five people and one Dorota to figure it out. Oh, and it's a party for NOT DEAD BART BASS. (He and Chuck both shared a fondness for secret sexy parties prior to his "death").
"...which is 555 and we all know from movies, that's fake."- Nate
"And you run a newspaper?" - B
Blair channelling Diana or Diana being some secret madame named India? It's hard to decide who wore the sexy sheath dress better. I'll give it to B as the blue was a great colour on her.
Can we talk Worst Hair? Because Blair's is looking flat. She also gets worst outfit for her choice in robes. That colour blocking number may be the worst we've seen in a run of bad silk robes.
Bethany returns with another full recap for you on Thursday.
