Look, we know that patricide is the new black and all, but sometimes the whole “innocent bystander” thing doesn’t apply. On Gossip Girl Season 6, Episode 9: "The Revengers", Bart Bass made it through half a cliffhanger before unhinging his hands and hitting the ground. (Someone please explain why the heck they bothered with a “To be continued...”)

But we do have a little problem with the fact that Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick) allowed his father to unceremoniously fall to his death. That Blair (Leighton Meester) stood by to witness the whole thing makes it even more unsettling. And yes, it’s true that Bart did try to have Chuck killed, and threatened Blair’s life in the process of the evening, but still.

We saw in the promo for  Season 6, Episode 10 “New York, I Love You XOXO” that Chuck is now wanted for questioning and Blair is helping him hide and then there’s a wedding and — oh yeah — an arrest. So, in the scheme of things, did it really help Chuck come to terms with his daddy issues to let the SOB (or, FO...forget it) fall? You tell us.
