What a great way to start the week to have three great shows on one night-- a great comedy, a puzzling medical drama, and yes, a controversial today's indecent proposal themed teen drama.
Chuck, the all so rich and twisted guy is back! He came back last week after pulling off that wicked scheme to have his girlfriend sleep with an older man just to get what he wants. But this week, its redemption time as he throws a wedding for the very pregnant Waldorf maid, Dorota, all the while a scheme to get Blair to forgive him. Dorota insists that she and fiane Vanya get a traditional wedding before her parents from Poland arrive and see her pregnant without a husband. Oh the disgrace. Oh the central theme of this show.
Dorota asks Blair and Chuck to be part of the ceremony and walk her down the aisle. Of course she would. But that's just great! Exactly what Chuck and Blair needs, sarcasm packed in. Chuck and Blair's relationship continue going down in flames as Blair avoids Chuck after what he did.
Meanwhile, the lying goes on as Serena tells her very charming perfect boyfriend Nate she is having breakfast with the Humphreys when in fact she's secretly meeting with Carter Baizen. That girl really has a need to go to the deep end of the cliff. And apparently, lying does run in the family as Rufus discovers Lily has been lying to him about her whereabouts.
Which part of this is light again?
