Gossip Girl Season 4, Ep22 Full Recap & video
The Wrong Goodbye
Did you clap your hands gleefully when former religious freak turned unbalanced mommy Georgina appeared on the screen of Gossip Girl? Me too! Everyone is a little off-kilter and it's fabulous to watch all the crazy crazy combine in one maelstrom of Upper East Side wacky. Last week, Serena's cousin Charlie stopped taking her pills and wanted Dan to sex her on up while pretending she was Serena. Chuck found out Daddy Thorpe was responsible for his wife's death and sent him back (allegedly) to Chicago. Raina/Reina/Rayna found out from Nate and Daddy Thorpe is going to take it out on Chuck. Chuck still loves Blair but he hurt her face. Blair is engaged to the prince. But she's left him at the party to go save Chuck. Serena has just lost her damn mind. Vanessa and Jenny are leaving the show and all we can say is about time about the former and didn't they already about the latter. And.. I'm sure I forgot something, but strap on and let's go. We start at a party! Wow, everything is upside down. Dan is flipped out about the Charlie/Serena weird. Chuck is looking for Blair. Blair went to Chuck's hotel and now she's trapped on the roof with Daddy Thorpe and he's playing with fire and drinking. Rayna/Reina wanted to apologize but it's too late. Ohhh, Georgina Sparks! Welcome back girlie. Her re-entry hello to Gossip Girl was the funniest dialogue since, well, we can't remember. But she's desperate to get into the scheming via Serena/Blair/Dan because Desperate Housewives doesn't have any openings. She's mad that Vanessa is involved but she's not. Us too! Home Prison Lily is watching the party via web cam. Serena is now going to Columbia? Her former headmistress says something about how she should have gone to Europe and lived life instead of college. Oh foreshadowing GG writers, thou art so subtle. Chuck overhears Blair telling Daddy Thorpe that Chuck almost destroyed her. But Chuck is still number one on her speed dial. He barges in on Daddy Thorpe holding a gun, but Rayna/Reina takes the gun away and tells him she knows it was an accident. mmm We love Chuck in a -patterned?- tux and lavender bow tie. Off-her-meds Charlie was found by Georgina who sends her to a room with an open window. And we're… at a Bar Mitzvah watching Chuck and Blair dancing to Adele? Wasn't Adele on last week's Glee and Dancing with the Stars? That Brit, she does get around. Awhh, they look so happy, pretending to be Jewish. The hora gets to them, and they are all schmooching and doing some very non-tween activities. Oh, finally. See, isn't that kiss much hotter than anything Bland provided? Blair says it's complicated, intense, all-consuming love that pulls them in. Serena finds Charlie in a bad place. Charlie says every girl wants to be Serena and every guy wants to date her. Except for prison guy and Nate and Dan, of course. Somehow people want Serena to chose Dan or Nate. Why? Vanessa finds Dan's manuscript. There is a really boring conversation about his book. The prince is still waiting for Blair. Chuck tells the prince that he'll always be waiting for Blair, something romantic. She's about to call it off, but Chuck steps in and stops her. He says there's a difference between a great love and the right love, and that Blair deserves the fairytale. They should have stopped it right there but then it descends into they need to let each other go and they will always love each other cliches. She then leaves to join her prince, whom she's known for 10 minutes and there's never been hot sex at a Bat Mitzvah. Charlie is miraculously fine, suddenly. Georgina apparently knows she wasn't ever on meds. We are all confused. Turns out she's really Ivy and was paid by the real Charlie's mother to make sure the VanderWs wouldn't come after her ever again. Three weeks later, it's morning over Manhattan. Daddy Thorpe is going to jail. Mommy Lily is sending her boy off to college. Blair is headed to Monaco to get married. She's still being friendly with Dan. Charlie is taking the bus to Florida. Serena is wearing the shortest skirt known to man and a hot pink top. She's dressed like a NASCAR sports car. She's going to do nothing on the beach. She needs to be alone in Malibu. Chuck is sad. He's sitting with do-nothing Nate, doing nothing together. Dan is doing nothing in Long Island with Eric. And Vanessa is pretending to represent Dan as a literary agent and going to Spain. And we end with Serena on the beach getting a job in the movies. And there's a positive pregnancy kit in (we think) Blair's bedroom. That puts us on pause until next season. XOXO for summer!
