Gossip Girl: Season 5, Episode 2 :: Beauty and the Feast
This week on Gossip Girl Season 5, Blair struggles to hide her pregnancy from Louis, while Serena convinces her so-called “cousin” to move in with her. Episode 2, “Beauty and the Feast,” aired on October 3, 2011.
Blair’s pregnancy is causing her a world of troubles. The sight of food and strong smells make her nauseous. When Louis’ sister Beatrice arrives to get acquainted with her soon-to-be sister-in-law, Blair’s frequent trips to the bathroom make her suspicious. She assumes that Blair is bulimic. It certainly would help her plot to steal Louis’ throne. But her plan backfires when she finds out Blair is pregnant.
When Serena finds Charlie (a girl whose real name is Ivy and was hired by Serena’s aunt to pretend to be her daughter), she insists they live together. Charlie can’t tell her boyfriend about Serena, nor can she tell Serena about her true identity. She winds up getting caught in a sticky situation - one that leads her back to New York and back to her life of deception.
In Chuck’s quest to feel pain, he hires some street thugs to beat him up. But all this bodily harm could cause serious internal damage. Meanwhile, the older woman that Nate fell for in Los Angeles shows up on his mother’s doorstep in New York.
