Lily comes in laughing and says hello to her new boys and introduces them to her decorator, Lydia Hearst, who we're calling Amelia, who looks very British. Chuck fields yet another text ("Can't wait to see u xo B") and the music gets louder as things start moving very slowly. Bart and Lily go laughing out of the room like a Fitzgerald dinner party, glamorous and laughing, and he focuses on Amelia as the music swells ... and then abruptly dies, as he ditches Blair's bouquet in the garbage and takes out a single flower. "...Amelia. A moment?" Amelia asks what he's up to, and he suggests they discuss her plans for his room. "And who are you?" asks the Caterpillar, but you already know his answer. First, last and always, the only thing nobody's asked him to give up, because in order to survive he's had to fool them into thinking it's implicit in his makeup: "I'm Chuck Bass."
Random asks B if everything's okay, and she reads him Chuck's text, which is a lie that Bart is getting in late, so he can't make the flight. "But he's booking something commercial..." she says, kind of bereft, and Random offers to flip her for the jump seat. She sets off after a moment of thinking about the reupholstered jet and the little cookies the attendants make you. "What's ten hours? Absence makes the heart grow fonder, right?" She and Random storm the helicopter, and the men follow up behind with her bags.
"They say a leopard can't change his spots," smirks GG, "But some things do change. The path not taken can become a road trip," she says, over Rufus on the tour bus, "Being grounded can lead to something groundbreaking," over Jenny creating a fairly gross Ann Taylor-looking jacket with red piping... And then, over alternating shots of the now clearly intended A couples, having a fun time in Brooklyn and Manhattan, and shots of the helicopter taking off over the city, "And whether they're sweating it out on the sultry streets or cooling their heels in the Hamptons. No one does summer like New Yorkers. Grab your shades and your sunblock, this one looks like a scorcher! Until then..."
You know I love you. XOXO.
