['Gossip Girl' - 'Rhodes to Perdition']
They say blood is thicker than water, but on the Upper East Side, few things are thicker than money -- a lesson that the artist formerly known as Ivy learned all too well this week. She misguidedly seems to think that the Rhodes name has earned her a bulletproof vest, but in reality, it's only painted a bigger target on her back.
While far too much of this week's 'Gossip Girl' was concerned with Chivy drama, it was nice to see Nate at the center of his own storyline for once (even if said storyline was still kind of a snooze), and the scenes between Chuck and Blair were both touching and tragic. Finally, we saw Chuck admit what we already knew; now it's just a matter of time before Blair comes to her senses, right?
The episode was somewhat lacking in twists and turns this week, so instead of struggling to find our top five jaw-dropping moments, we narrowed them down to three instead. Join us after the jump for our favorite scenes.
