As expected, last night's episode of Gossip Girl was dripping with residual drama at every second in the wake of last week's big reveal of Diana Payne (Elizabeth Hurley) as Chuck's (Ed Westwick) mother and the mounting marriage woes between Lily (Kelly Rutherford) and Rufus (Matthew Settle). Dan (Penn Badgley) and Blair (Leighton Meester) are still just sorting out their respective roles in their relationship and an unexpected appearance by both on New York Magazine's latest approval matrix send B into a bit of a emotional tailspin.
Nate (Chace Crawford) is not convinced Diana is Chuck's mom, so he hires a private investigator to dig up the source of Diana's wealth and more about her identity, but Chuck respectfully abstains to sort out what kind of relationship he would like to have with his long lost mum. Lola (Ella Rae Peck) who put Chuck's mama drama on blast is confronted with an impromptu family reunion of her own, discovering that her father is actually Will van der Woodsen (William Baldwin). This makes Lola and Serena (Blake Lively) not just cousins, but half-sisters, and everyone a lot uneasy, especially Lily (of course). Everything comes to a head at Lily's forced family dinner, but if you haven't caught up yet, we won't spoil the rest for you. Check back here weekly for our fashion recap!
