Tonight on Gossip Girl: Dan and Blair Go Public (Sneak Peek)
Blair (Leighton Meester) and Dan (Penn Badgley) have been a couple for a few weeks on Gossip Girl and now that Blair has her divorce papers they can step out as an official item. Not to be one to go all bashful Blair of course wants to announce this in a big way and this becomes the setting for the weekly Gossip Girl event, an event that will see some drama of course.
Blair is free from her royal shackles (that didn't actually seem that bad as she's been swanning around New York since the wedding) and so this 'coming out' event begins as an exercise in revelling in Blair's freedom. As you can see from the sneak peek below, Blair is essentially making plans that are perfect for her without taking into account any of Dan's tastes. Luckily Dan has a backbone and mentions his dissatisfaction with Blair's plans and a compromise is reached. Dan and Blair do share tastes, tastes that cemented their friendship that evolved into this romance and so they decide to have a British-themed Salon. "Salon of the Dead" features an appearance from Julian Tepper and Jenna Gribbon who are the founders of The Oracle Club; a members-only workspace for artists that is inspired by surrealist literary salons.
Blair and Dan appear to be a good place at the moment after overcoming some early bumps in their relationship, but there will be plenty of fireworks elsewhere tonight. Serena (Blake Lively) continues her role as Gossip Girl and the unpleasant behavior that she subjected Lola (Ella Rae Peck) to last week continues. Serena decided to make Lola the new 'It Girl' of the Upper East Side, but when it looked like this plan was working Serena's envy got the better of her and instead she decided to humiliate her cousin. Lola gets the audition of a lifetime tonight but will Gossip Girl/Serena destroy her chances?
Lola is of course less than happy with how she is being treated by Gossip Girl and turns to Nate (Chace Crawford) as she wants to find out who Gossip Girl really is. Lola is pretty smart in the world of this show it would seem as she believes that this current Gossip Girl is not the original; will she discover Serena's big dark secret?
Lola is closer to the truth than she expects but it is Diana (Elizabeth Hurley) that Serena should be concerned with. Diane also has secrets that are somehow about Chuck (Ed Westwick). Chuck of course found out for certain that the woman, who was masquerading as his mother, really isn't his mother at all; so who was the person who saved his life? Serena and Diana are going to face-off over secrets they both want to remain that way but will either be able to keep their word?
One relationship that is floundering is between Rufus (Matthew Settle) and Lily (Kelly Rutherford) who continue to disagree about the whole Ivy (Kaylee DeFer) situation, with Rufus remaining in Brooklyn. Will this couple be able to resolve this conflict?
