'Gossip Girl' Recap: Chuck's Shocking Surprise, Plus 4 More 'OMG' Moments

Mon, April 30, 2012 9:53pm EST by 5 Comments

This is the episode we’ve all been waiting for! Finally Chuck and Blair team up for a good ol’ scheme, the truth about Chuck’s father is REVEALED and the real Gossip Girl is back!

Excuse me while I take a moment and wipe away my tears of JOY.

This episode was exactly what we (Chair fans) needed. It just felt so right having Chuck (Ed Westwick) and Blair (Leighton Meester) reverting back to the old scheming days — heck, they even got Dorota in on the action!

As we saw from last week’s episode, Chuck needed Blair’s help after he found out that Diana Payne (Elizabeth Hurley) wasn’t really his mom. And after finding an old photograph of his Uncle Jack Bass and his real mom Elizabeth, he suspected Jack was actually his father — more on that later though. So to find out what Diana was really up to, he needed Blair’s help to crack the code — the code that was literally Diana Payne’s day planner.

Blair — being the pro she is — busted out her cipher and got down to business and together her and Chuck found out what the numbers in Diana’s planner meant. But what Diana’s day lead them to find went beyond Chuck’s wildest imagination…

And here are my ‘OMG’ moments:

#1 Bart Bass is ALIVE!
Yes, you are reading this correctly. Chuck’s father is not dead — he’s alive! Chuck and Blair ended up at an upscale sex club where Diana was spending her evening with Jack Bass — and where the real Gossip Girl was thought to be. But when Blair saw Jack she looked like she’d seen a ghost! And that ghost was BART BASS! Obviously Blair has known that Bart is alive for some time now. So why has she never told Chuck? Of course, this isn’t anything we need to worry about now because Chuck knows.

#2 Dan Tells Blair ‘I Love You’
But she didn’t say it back! Blair was the first to tell Chuck when they were dating those three little words, so does this mean doesn’t feel the same way about Dan? Hmm!

#3 Dan Turns Down A Fellowship In Rome
Dan was asked by one of the most prestigious writing programs in the world to go on a retreat in Rome for the summer and he said NO because of Blair! And the worst part is he didn’t tell her that he said no because of her! He lied to her and said it was because the program decided to go with another candidate. Dan in love makes me want to vomit.

#4 The Real Gossip Girl Is Back
Nate (Chace Crawford) and Lola set up Serena (Blake Lively) forcing to hand over the reins as Gossip Girl once and for all. It’s good to have the real one back, that’s for sure!

With only two more episodes to go, it will be interesting to see what happens now!

What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Is there a chance Blair and Chuck will end up back together at the end of this season? Vote and weigh in below!

Its unreasonable that Bart is still alive. I mean why would he pretend to be dead?

To your first OMG moment: what makes you think Blair knew that Bart was alive for some time now? She clearly was shocked to see him when she opened the doors, expecting to find Jack – I’m pretty sure her confused/scared/upset expression as well as her “It can’t be!” spoke to that pretty well. And she was obviously shaken when she met with Chuck outside and told him he needed to go back into the house. Blair was obviously as surprised as anyone to discover Bart alive.
