Yes, it finally happened — Chuck and Blair kissed on the Nov. 14 episode of ‘Gossip Girl!’ But I’m pretty upset with how the smooch panned out.

They say if something seems too good to be true, it usually is — and that was definitely the case with Chuck (Ed Westwick) and Blair’s (Leighton Meester) kiss on the Nov. 14 episode of Gossip Girl.

We caught a glimpse of the highly anticipated “Chair” kiss last week, though many fans — like me — were hesitant to believe it was actually going to happen. But lo and behold, the two finally kissed! And it wasn’t a dream, or some weird pre-episode movie scene. They actually kissed!

Blair attended Chuck’s creepy Sleep No More party — yeah, I’ll get to that one later — where everyone was required to wear a mask, making it the perfect place for “Chair” to secretly reunite. Unfortunately, Blair’s reason for going to the party wasn’t to reconcile; her plan was to seduce him, proving he hasn’t changed and is still stuck in his old Chuck Bass habits!

And it worked!

More ‘OMG’ moments:

1. Chuck and Dorota teamed up against Blair!

Apparently, Chuck knew what Blair was up to all along — thanks to Dorota. They both knew Blair wouldn’t change her mind about Chuck if he fell for her trap which aimed prove he’s NOT the good guy he says he’s trying to be. Obviously, Chuck has caught Blair’s eye between his new charity work, last week’s apology and therapy. But Blair still isn’t convinced yet. What will it take for her to realize that maybe Chuck really is a changed man?!

 2. Ivy’s real identity is almost revealed!

Blair, Chuck and Dorota weren’t the only ones scheming on this week’s episode. Ivy/Charlie (Kaylee DeFer) was caught up in an Upper East Side drama storm when Diana Payne (Elizabeth Hurley) arranged for her real ex-boyfriend — the one she ditched in LA — to come to NYC. And Ivy didn’t bump into her ex until Diana told her to kiss Nate (Chace Crawford) at the party! Ivy’s identity wasn’t exposed tonight, but I’m pretty sure the truth is about to come pretty soon, don’t you? I’m hoping she can hide it for a little longer.

3. We got a hint about why Diana is so crazy!

At the end of the episode, Diana was on the phone with Nate’s grandpa, who has been a pretty shady character in the past. Grandpa Archibald thanked Diana for “restoring [his] grandson’s reputation.” I wouldn’t be surprised if Diana is lying to Nate’s Grandpa, too, but at least for now we have a hint to hold on to about what Diana’s craziness is all about.

4. Dan has been skipping out on his book signings!

Boo hoo! Lonely Boy may finally be living the life of a successful writer, but it doesn’t seem to be all that he had hoped for. Apparently, Dan (Penn Badgley) isn’t even participating in his own book tour! I’m not surprised — and honestly, sort of relieved. We need him back on the UES!

What do you think, Hollywoodlifers? Will Blair EVER accept her true feelings for Chuck, or will she go through with her marriage to Prince Louis (Hugo Becker)? Weigh in below!
