Was it just us, or did Gossip Girl’s Season 4, Episode 15: “It-Girl Happened One Night,” feel a bit like a rerun? Chuck is ambushed professionally and personally — yawn. Blair lashes out at a friend — again. Damien ensnares an innocent — ho hum.
Anyway, here are a few moments that, though not shocking, at least kept us from changing the channel. But do step your game up next week, GG.
5. The Captain gives Chuck the key card
Hey, someone misses jail! We assume that’s why the Captain decided to commit a little corporate espionage that’ll easily be traced to him.
4. Russell destroys Chuck
We’re sad for Chuck and all, but even we saw this coming. And we can barely balance our checkbook. Maybe Chuck should stick to planning sex parties and leave the running of multimillion-dollar corporations to someone else.
3. Blair ambushes Serena
Only Serena would overlook Blair outing her boyfriend as a felon on camera. Apparently there are some advantages to being best friends with a giant attention whore: They’re very forgiving of that sort of thing.
2. Damien drags Eric into his nefarious plans
We have to hand it to Damien — for a drug dealer, he has quite the work ethic. And apparently a key part of his business plan is tormenting at least one high schooler at all times.
1. Blair and Dan hold hands
The one genuinely shocking moment of the evening looked like it was physically shocking, too. If a simple touch from Dan’s hand could make Blair freeze up like that, how explosive will the rest of their relationship be once it really gets going? We can’t wait!
