As Chuck continues investigating his father’s checkered past, Serena reveals her romantic history to Steven, and Nate must make a difficult business decision regarding the Spectator.
The Nov. 5 episode of Gossip Girl kicked off with Dan’s (Penn Badgley) latest chapter being published, and this time the focus of his attention is Nate (Chace Crawford), and Steven (Barry Watson) is not happy! He thinks Nate is unsuitable for Sage, so Serena (Blake Lively) invites Nate to a horse show to prove his worth. This outing sparks a whole chain of events, in which many secrets are revealed…
1. Lady Alexander is a horse?! After a wild goose chase to an art studio, Blair (Leighton Meester) and Chuck ( Ed Westwick ) discover that Lady Alexander is in fact a horse Bart bought. They make a trip with Lily (Kelly Rutherford) to a stable, where they learn the truth: Bart never bought any horses! It was all a ruse to hide his illegal oil purchases from the Middle East. Finally, Chuck has leverage over Bart!
2. Nate makes a deal with Ivy. Nate realizes that without Dan’s serializations, the Spectator is in serious financial trouble. Bart comes to his office to offer him a deal, but Nate refuses out of loyalty to Chuck. However, he notices the blasts coming from Gossip Girl about Lily must be sent from a source, which brings him to… Ivy! He strikes a deal with her to send all future exclusives about Lily to him, instead of GG.
#3 Steven slept with Lily?! Ewww! But you know what they say: like mother, like daughter. The Spectator’s first blast about Lily reveals she slept with Serena’s boyfriend Steven (Barry Watson) several years ago at a wedding! Sleeping around at weddings?! Again, like mother, like daughter! Serena has a tough time adjusting to the idea, but it seems like she’ll come around.
#4 Dan moves in with Blair. Yay! Lonely Boy will be less lonely now that he’s finally seen the light, moving in with Blair to get away from crazy Georgina Sparks (Michelle Trachtenburg). Georgina had been trying to set him up with an A-list girl, but Dan was unimpressed. Of course, he may regret burning her soon, as she managed to steal a sex tape of him and Serena from Serena’s phone! Will S ever learn!?
