This week's climactic episode of Gossip Girl both solved some problems and created a whole slew of new ones. Serena (Blake Lively) is still acting as the de facto Gossip Girl but Nate (Chace Crawford) and Serena's new half-sister Lola (Ella Rae Peck) have her number. No, wait, Diana Payne (Elizabeth Hurley) has the real Gossip Girl's phone number and uses that to get Serena to steal back the day planner that Nate stole from Diana's hotel room. In it are coded phone numbers possibly revealing the whereabouts of one Jack Bass (Desmond Harrington) who may or may not be Chuck's (Ed Westwick) real father.
Speaking of which, Sir Chuckles enlists his former love Blair (Leighton Meester) to help him scheme a way around Diana's codes. She agrees and Serena decides to help, too, once she discovers that Chuck needs to take down Diana in order to find out who his father is but not without trying to steal the day planner first. They all wind up at a mansion that is actually a brothel (told you this episode was bazonkers) with Lonely Boy Dan (Penn Badgley) in hot pursuit thinking that Blair is canoodling with Chuck again. But wait, there's more! Serena gets super close to finding out who the real Gossip Girl is then totally fails. Diana reveals her true colors and sooooo much more behind the closed doors of the mansion. And let's just say there are secrets in this place of the ghostly variety. If you haven't caught up yet, we won't spoil the rest for you. Check back here weekly for our fashion recap!
