'Gossip Girl' Recap: Staying Alive

'Gossip Girl' Recap: Staying Alive

This week on Gossip Girl, everyone has the chance to tell the truth, with varying levels of success. Also, Cece Rhodes is back in town for a Studio 54 party in her honor and is more fabulous than everyone else on this show combined. Her steady diet of gin and secrets is doing wonderful things for her complexion.

Nate sees through his family machinations and writes a blog post about being honest, which in addition to the adorable suit he sports, means that Nate has been taken over by aliens and this show is about to take a very sci-fi twist. It's the only reasonable explanation for that level of competence from Nate.

Dan stalks his stalker only to play into the negative publicity game. Cece is maybe dying but looks fabulous while doing so. Serena is confused but also sports fantastic Supremes hair, like a missing blonde Dreamgirl. Carol is covering a horrible secret about the real Charlotte Rhodes like maybe she's dead or Gossip Girl or actually Georgina Sparks, which would be the best possible scenario.

Meanwhile, Chuck is finally honest about letting go of Blair and his feelings for her, except for how he will never give her up and never let her down, like the sweetest Rick Roll of all time. And Blair? She's likely lying to herself about wanting Louis back as her sweet prince. We all know it's the dark princes she's always liked best.

Despite the episode relying a little too heavily on the Charlie/Ivy aspects, there were enough emotional morsels and mysteries to get us through. Besides, this season I feel I have to give any episode in which Serena actually brushes her hair a pass. Let's delve a little deeper into this week's Gossip Girl, shall we?
