Gossip Girl went out with a bang before its (agonizingly long) two-month break. There was an OMG-worthy moment practically every five minutes during Episode 2.11, “The Townie,” but here are the the ones that literally made our jaws drop.
5. He’s baaaack!
Of all the people to run into at that trashy rager in Juliet's hometown, we did NOT expect to see Damien. He's one of the slimier characters in the GG universe, but he totally redeemed himself this episode in helping Dan and Blair track down Juliet (oh, and being totally a-dork-able in the flashbacks from Knightley School).
4. Reunited and it’s understood
It was bound to happen eventually... but we still couldn't get over uber-dramatic moment when the pair saw each other for the first time in years. That's a look that screams History with a capital H.
3. Just. Plain. Creepy.
Juliet's pulled a lot of crazy, creepy crap this season — but hiding out in Serena's room at the rehab facility and totally scaring the bejeezus out of her was the cherry on top of it all.
2. Way to give Mommie Dearest a run for her money
Lily put Ben in Jail?! We did NOT see that coming. Despite her flaws, we always thought Lil was a well-meaning parent, but now she's giving Joan Crawford in Mommy Dearest a run for her money in the Insane Mom contest.
1. Blan? Dair? OMG YES!
Yeah, there were prison sentences and statutory rape scandals aplenty in this episode, but it's the new 'ship that we can't stop talking about... Dan... and Blair? Being all cute and snippy with each other? They say opposites attract, but these two are from different dimensions. We can't wait to see if these crazy kids hook up when Gossip Girl returns in January!
