Chuck finally finds out who his mom is, Blair and Dan’s worlds collide, Lola leaves the UES all on the April 16 episode of ‘Gossip Girl’!

Poor Chuck! The mother he’s been searching for all along has been right in front of him!

I have to be honest, I’m glad Chuck (Ed Westwick) has found his mom, but I just can’t believe who it is. Drum roll please …

The conniving, evil and insensitive Diana Payne (Elizabeth Hurley). Eek! A part of me is not surprised, but it all does make sense. Both Diana and Chuck have evil tendencies and can’t control who they sleep with — it’s really all coming together now. With that being said, it will be interesting to see how Chuck reacts to this, but I’m concerned about Gossip Girl’s final text to Diana, saying “that’s not the secret I was talking about.” What other secrets could Diana possibly be hiding? I can’t even imagine.

But what the most disappointing part of the night was Blair’s reaction. She totally didn’t even acknowledge Chuck’s important discovery. #Sigh

And here are more ‘OMG’ moments:

#1 Lola leaves the UES
Lola learned her lesson the tough old UES way: start a lot of drama, upset the Constance clan and then leave. Lola was on a mission to out Serena as Gossip Girl when she overheard Diana confess she was Chuck’s mom. She sent the blast and ended up ruining Dan (Penn Badgley) and Blair’s (Leighton Meester). Nate (Chace Crawford) was understandably mad at Lola and then broke up with her.

#2 Serena Is Still Gossip Girl

Even though Lola sent the blast from Serena’s phone, she managed to not spill that Gossip Girl is in fact Serena. I think that was a wise choice. The big question though is WHEN is the real Gossip Girl going to come back?

#3 Rufus And Lily Are On The Rocks

Could Lily (Kelly Rutherford) and Rufus be heading towards a permanent relationship vacation? It seems likely. Start stocking up on your tissues!

#4 Ivy Dickens Is Still In The UES

Apparently Rufus (Matthew Settle) has been paying for her to stay in NYC which is why Lily is mad at him.

Overall, the most shocking moment was revelation of Chuck’s mom.
