"I told you I was sorry for my little transgression, and you forgave me. Now either make me kiss a girl already, or let's move on!" There's something in her face, maybe I'm making it up, but I think she's really pushing for Option One. Chuck apologizes and admits he's been on edge lately; maybe it's that word "edge," rhymes with "ledge," but she lets just a little of her worry slip fleetingly across her face. The dark fear for him that she covers up with so much sparkling and rage. "With all my liquid assets tied up in this hotel, I have to make sure everything gets done right."
Blair smiles like she's scored a point and adjusts his tie: "Right for the Chuck Bass I know means right now." He speaks to her in her language, about not being taken seriously; how they all think he's playing a game, like a rich boy, and would love to watch him fall. "I have to prove I'm not just Bart Bass' son. My impulsive tendencies have no place in my life as a legitimate businessman." She yanks on his tie, eager to slide into home again, reminding him how sexy he is when he's legitimate. When he's being the man he wants so desperately to be. As he heads off for a meeting, he checks in -- he knows her so well -- and reiterates that he needs to do this on his own. For one, because he does, and secondly, obviously, because she ruins everything she touches when she gets nuts like this. Her blunt chaos can't help this time. "Of course!" she says brightly, touching his lapel, and the second he's gone she goes all Lucy Ricardo and calls up Mark Ronson.
In DUMBO, Dan sips coffee from a gorgeous mug and flirts unendingly with Nate about a mysterious package. After much grab-assing, we learn that it's a DVD of the entire Endless Knights trilogy, which after much Dan-style soul-searching he is now prepared to watch. These movies being Nate's favorite collective thing franchise in the whole entire world, he sparkles all over like a Forks vampire and gets ready to watch them with Dan. (The second movie is subtitled Return To Camelot. I wish these movies were real so fucking bad.) Dan asks Nate if he honestly thinks "the sight of Olivia in fake fangs, reciting stilted dialogue" is going to be a dealbreaker. Because Nate is stoned, he doesn't give the obvious response, which is "Olivia's entire life equals stilted recitations in giant fake teeth."
