Gossip Girl Chuck Blair

Chuck says he still loves Blair; the two go to couples therapy; Charlie is almost outed for the hundredth time — and much more on the Nov. 28 episode of ‘Gossip Girl’

We all know how difficult it’s been for Chuck to drop the “L” bomb to Blair in the past — it was the root of their first break-up after all. So when Chuck admits to his best friend that he can’t imagine the day when he’s NOT in love with her, it’s a pretty big step in the right Chairection.

Blair (Leighton Meester)  joins Chuck (Ed Westwick) in his therapy session in an attempt to learn how he turned his “bad Bass ways” into his new life with a live-in Dalai Lama. What was supposed to be a session just about Chuck turned into a Chair couple’s therapy. The two learned more about their relationship with each other in those few minutes than they have in their entire relationship.

Blair wanted to know how Chuck has changed and she got an answer she didn’t want to hear. Mr. Bass told her he changed after he returned the engagement ring he wanted to give her to Harry Winston…a symbol of finally letting her go.  This, of course, really upset her and she left immediately to attend the wedding cake testing. Oh yeah, that wedding…

Chuck ran to Blair’s side and asked if she was upset. She clearly was and admitted all this time she blamed him for “bringing her into the darkness,” but really it was her who brought out the darkness in him. So deep. Chuck — like the new gentleman he is — denied this and said Blair is the “brightest” thing  has ever came into his life.

Later in a macho man-to-man talk over whiskey, Nate asks the big question: “Do you still love her (Blair)?” And Chuck says: “I can’t imagine a day that I won’t.”

Sounds like true love to me! Tonight’s episode made me more confident than ever that Blair will run out of her wedding and into the arms of Chuck. Don’t you agree??

More ‘OMG’ moments:

#1 Charlie’s is almost exposed once again!

This time I really thought Charlie (KayLee Defer) was in trouble though, despite every other episode’s false alarm. Her ex-boyfriend Max tried to reveal her real identity at Cece Rhodes’ Studio 54 party and Serena (Blake Lively) believed him. Fortunately, Lily’s (Kelly Rutherford) sister — Charlie’s “mom” — is a professional schemer and caught Max’s plan before it was too late. I can’t help but wonder though, WHO is the real Charlie Rhodes? Is she alive or dead? Will we ever see her? Will Charlie go and try to find her since we know she “disappears” before Blair’s wedding? Hmmm…

#2 An Archibald family affair

Just what we need… Trip Archibald back in the picture. This guy has been nothing but trouble since the beginning of GG time, but we’re going to have to deal with it. Nate (Chace Crawford) finds out from one of his reporters (remember he IS Editor-in-Chief of the NY Spectator now) that his sister-in-law Maureen — Trip’s wife — is having an affair with her sailing instructor. This turns out to be a scheme plotted by Maureen to put her politician husband back in the press. So rather than publishing the story about the affair, Nate runs an article about how the affair was just a big lie! And surprisingly, the holy grandfather is very proud of Nate.

#3 Dan is falling for his agent

I’m absolutely hating this already. This girl annoys me. But if Dan (Penn Badgley) is happy, I guess I can try to be happy for him. Lonely Boy tries to figure out who started the @IHateHumphrey Twitter account only to learn it’s his sneaky agent. The two hash things out and bond over all of his social media haters. Vomit.

#4 Cece Rhodes is sick

Oh no! Grandma Rhodes is back, but she’s brought her health issues with her. We’re not sure exactly what she has, but she’s sick with something. This will of course wreak major havoc with the Rhodes/ Van Der Woodsens. Perfect!

In next week’s preview Blair talks about canceling the wedding (which we know is not true) and then there is a car crash. I’m posing this question now: will Blair be the one in the car crash and will she lose the baby??

I really can’t wait until next Monday to get to the bottom of this.

What do you think, Hollywoodlifers? Were you happy with tonight’s episode? What did you think about the Chair moments? Sound off in your comments below!
