For some reason, the fact that Nate is clearly not working with a full deck is no more a dealbreaker than the fact that every word Lola's ever said to him is a lie, so they are finally together. Which means he's officially been with more Serena Doubles than anybody on the entire show. If he'd ever slept with Svetlana he'd have the whole set, but no. Nearby Dan tells Blair that Chuck has recalled the dogs of war, and she kisses him but heads inside to take care of Serena while CeCe dies and dies and dies...
Which is exactly when GG sends Chuck the email proving that it was Dan that sent her the video in the first place. Which somehow reignites his ire, even though he got exactly what he wanted out of it and then refused to do anything about it, but I guess you can't entirely unhunch all at once.
Next week: Smiles! Laughter! Funny jokes! Enjoyment! A renewed respect and probably apologies for the hard working people who make the show I still so dearly love! Or else just a full-color photo of yours truly going Betty Draper Apeshit on the shattered remains of what was once a two-week-old Toshiba Thrive. XOXO.
