Dan's confused: how can B suddenly be pregnant if she just recently got back with Nate? His face falls, in sympathy: "...Oh. Then who?" And kids, nobody in that room is prepared for the answer, which is Chuck. Jenny just about falls over sideways, and Dan's spaghetti repeats on him a little bit. "Chuck? And Blair? Blair and Chuck? Then why isn't he the one buying the test?" Dan assumes that it's because Chuck is disgusting, and Serena doesn't disagree exactly, but assures him Chuck has no idea about any of this. Dan points out that, although he does hate Chuck, Chuck deserves to know what's going on. "He does have this weird influence over her," Serena nods, and wonders if Chuck can talk her into taking this seriously. Their relationship has always been like a mysterious black box or grotesque carnival, for Serena, and she doesn't know too much about how it works, but she does know the balloon-popping routine she usually tries with Blair isn't working this time: she's dug too far in. "I just...I'm so worried about her." Dan embraces Serena and their minds worry together, and Jenny slumps away.
Rufus is chatting up some young lady at his gallery, and she tries several times to get him to ask her out before just boldly declaring her intentions. He gets distracted by Bex Simon, Lily's lovely art dealer from a long time ago that accidentally sold her the Alison painting. The other woman, Bryn, notes that he's completely out of it, and tells him to call her later when he has it together. Which concept is ludicrous, but she doesn't know that. She leaves and Rufus commences flirting with Bex. He points her to a wall opposite, calling something that is neither beautiful nor mixed-media a "beautiful mixed-media piece," and honestly I don't think he's ever correctly identified a piece of art in his gallery that we've seen. As usual, Bex does not call him on his total ignorance, but changes the subject to Alison. Who is gone, along with his hopes of reconciliation, not to mention his romance fantasy affair with Lily. They agree to have a date tomorrow night. Awesome, because I love Bex and I'm happy to see her again, but also because I love Lily too much to hand her Rufus until he's done cooking.
