Gossip Girl is still winding down from the whirlwind of OMG-ness from its mid-season finale, so this week was all about the groundwork: Preparing for OMGs of the future rather than providing many gasps per minute today. Still, we had a few shocks to wake us from our winter stupor. Let us recap the most intense moments from Season 4, Episode 13: “Damien Darko.”

5. Dan sabotages Blair

Es-tu, Lonely Boy? After uninviting Blair’s author Lorrie Moore, Dan officially never gets to climb up on his high horse again.

4. Blair doesn’t sabotage Dan

… Especially since Queen B didn’t uninvite Jay McInerney. Dan never seems to understand that as underhanded as B can be, she does have a moral code.

3. Raina out-Chucks Chuck

Poor Chuckles has no idea how to deal with a girl who’s even colder about sex than he is. Actually — grinding her father’s business into dust is probably a good way to deal with it.

2. Ben turns Serena down cold

Has anyone ever spurned Serena’s advances before? Not that we can remember.

1. Eric is on drugs

Nooo! Not sweet, level-headed little E! Well, now that Jenny’s gone, someone has to fill the “Hot mess who hangs around with a dim-witted Eurotrash drug dealer.”
