Blair Held Hostage
This episode continues where the last left off. Blair is expected at a party, but when she doesn’t show up, Chuck goes looking for her. He receives an intentional pocket dial from Blair during which she cleverly announces her whereabouts. Russell Thorpe is holding her hostage and even plans to kill her by setting another fire. Chuck, Nate and Raina arrive in time to save Blair.
Instead of going to the party, Blair and Chuck crash a Bar Mitzvah which leads to an intimate evening. Later, Chuck encourages Blair to go back to Prince Louis. He has finally matured enough to realize that Blair is at her best when she’s with Louis, and Chuck only brings out the dark side in them both.
Charlie On The Loose
Meanwhile, Charlie is missing at the party. Serena, Vanessa and Dan are searching for her, while Georgina Sparks tries to push her way back into the action. Serena discovers Charlie at an open window, and talks her down. Charlie admits that she wants to be like Serena, and realizes that maybe New York isn’t the best place for her after all.
Charlie takes a bus back to Florida, where viewers see the deception that’s been going on for many episodes. Charlie is not Serena’s cousin. Serena’s Aunt paid this girl—Ivy—to pretend to be her daughter. But now that Ivy’s had a taste of the big apple, she may not be ready to give it up.
