The drama was bein’ handed ‘round in spades on Gossip Girl Season 5, Episode 21 — and it made for some deliciously fantastic “OMG”s, did it not? Everyone was in a tizzy over something, and we were l-o-v-i-n-g the twists and turns!
On a night filled to the BRIM with shockers, here are our top 5 OMG moments from “Despicable B” (with a couple bonuses thrown in for good measure).
5. Serena spots Papa William and Lola having a heart to heart
…Right after her daddio lied and told her he was outta town! Who else cringed when the backdrop of William and Lola’s breakfast buddy-up matched that which accompanied Serena’s spring stroll? (Side note: S, two words: jacket.envy.) Who else also couldn’t help but be a little “okay” with S getting the shaft? Oh, how the mighty have fallen.
4. Lily teams up with Ivy to take Carol down
Also known as: Lily decides to take her crazy pills again. This woman… Remind us to never get on Ms. vdWs’ bad side! You’re up, you’re down, she’s scheming with you — and then she’s scheming against you! And last night she was scheming with and against e’eryone! Even poor Serena did a few notable head scratches. What’s her end game? To keep ALL the money? That sounds about right…
3. Lily and Rufus separate
Far be it from us to have predicted the growth of Rufus’ backbone, but... THERE IT WAS! A clean-shaven Rufus gave Lil some serious b*tchface from the comfort of his Brooklyn digs and told her it was time for them to be apart. Ohhh snap! As much as we love these two together (for reasons we can’t quite nail down), we gotta say that Rufus’ cut-n-run timing here was near perfect, as he managed to avoid that terribly awkward dinner party.
2. Lola takes the GG password
We doubt this is headed anywhere good. On the other hand, maybe Lo is the perfect person to have this power! Maybe she can just, say, DELETE THIS LIFE-RUINING WEBSITE. (Sorry, we get a little excited...) What are the odds that Serena hasn’t changed the password since Georgina scrawled it on that notecard? Considering it’s Gossip Girl, we’d say SO GOOD. Watch out, S!
1. CHUCK’S DAD MIGHT BE JACK!
WELL NOW, color us shocked!!! In all of our configuring and rearranging, we never, ever, thought about this possibility. This opens up a whole new can o’ worms, and some very curious futures on the show. Most importantly, though, we’re just lovin’ the strength of the Chuck-Nate bromantical bond through all this drama!
Bonus: We’d be remiss if we didn’t also mention Nate’s valiant efforts to uncover the truth behind Diana Payne (even if it meant getting under her covers) and the shock of Blair’s vulnerability in front of Dan during her social ladder freefall/mini identity crisis.
