The theme o' the week was atonement. As the Gossip Girl guys and gals observed Yom Kippur in “The Fasting and the Furious,” everyone was seeking forgiveness from those they'd wronged. A few of our fave moments of food-deprived OMG-ness.

Serena tells Dan he’s the love her life
Man, this show is really getting ready to write Blake Lively off. She's gone from Dan's perfect shiksa goddess to an afterthought. We really weren't sure if he was over her until she confessed that he was her soulmate and he was just like, "...Crap."

Diana burns the picture...of her younger self!
Ivy, Ivy, Ivy. The first rule of the dossier of secrets is you read the dossier of secrets. You just missed a chance to get Diana off your back.

Attempted baby theft
We fully believe that marrying into a royal family is exactly this batsh*t — but we're pretty sure there's no court in the world that would uphold a contract requiring a mom to give up her baby for going on vacation. Mama needs a Mai Tai and a tan.

Chuck gets a shrink
If it took the Dark Knight this long to realize he needed professional help, then things must be really, really bad.

Louis finds the envelope
Oh, dude. Blair better enjoy all this royal intrigue while she can, because we have a feeling she's about to get kicked back to plebe-land if he finds out there was even the slightest chance he wasn’t the father.
