Gossip Girl was so insanely monumental this week, we can barely form words beyond ZOMG, GAHHH, NO WAY, and SAY WHAT. (And yes, they need to be in all-caps.) You guys, it was epic, and it should be as it marked the 100th episode of the show! What started as a tribute to Marilyn Monroe's iconic performance of "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend" courtesy of Serena (Blake Lively) in full-on pink dress va-va-va-voomness morphed into Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) arriving as Audrey Hepburn and doing a tug-of-war with S over Lonely Boy Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley). Alas, it was all part of Serena's dream, and when she awakens we're smack-dab in the middle of Blair's wedding day. The house is royally atwitter with B's impending marriage to Sour Patch Kid Prince Louis Grimaldi of Monaco (Hugo Becker)—even though we know she's still totally in love with Chuck (Ed Westwick)—and royal mama Sophie (Joanne Whalley) is still intent on stopping this wedding charade, calling it a "business deal." Well, she's not the only one who wants to see this "happy" day perish.
As is typical of her über-villain style, Georgina Sparks (Michelle Trachtenberg) appears out of nowhere to ruin Blair's special day and decides to go about it by posing as an altar boy. ("Bless us Father, we are about to sin.") Meanwhile, everyone's appealing to Chuck to be the one to rescue Blair from this sham of a marriage, including his best bud Nate (Chace Crawford) who seems to be falling for the sweet catering girl who may or may not be the new/real Charlie Rhodes. So, what happened? There was a wedding (sort of), an intervention (kinda), a complete character turnaround, and then the ultimate reveal of reveals that will leave you GAHHHHing as much as we still are right now. (Like we said, EPIC.) If you haven't caught up yet, we won't spoil the rest for you. Check back here weekly for our fashion recap!
