Gossip Girl: Season 5, Episode 5 :: The Fasting and the Furious
This week on Gossip Girl Season 5, Blair and Louis announce their pregnancy to their families. Meanwhile, Serena sabotages Dan’s movie deal rights. Episode 5, “The Fasting and the Furious” aired on Oct 24, 2011.
The Royal Contract
Blair and Louis tell their families about their baby-on-the-way, and the news is well recieved. But when Blair starts planning the baby’s future, like schools and living arrangements, Louis’ mother gets her nose out of joint. She wants to stick to royal tradition and raise the baby in Monaco. To make matters worse, Louis’ sister is working with Diana to create a contract that will spark a royal feud.
Meanwhile, Serena’s character in Dan’s book is ruining her job. To redeem herself, Serena must secure the movie rights to his book. But Dan’s agent has interest from higher profile clients. When Dan fails to mention Serena’s boss during a TV interview, Serena goes behind his back and sabotages Dan’s chances of working with any other clients.
Chuck Needs Help
An attractive psychiatrist has caught Chuck’s eye, and he’s in hot pursuit of her. But her rejection only leads to a realization about his character, and the fact that he actually needs the psychiatrist for her work, and not for her body.
Gossip Girl Fashion
It’s nice to see the GG hunks hit the fashion radar. Chuck is wearing a Brioni Spring Summer 2011 cotton/silk suit with a Brioni paisley tie worth $195.00!
Blair looks retro chic in her Dolce & Gabbana floral top and Tracy Reese Fall 2011 high-waisted pants. She finishes off her outfit with a $1,845.00 Valentino Aphrodite top handle shopper purse.
Sometimes, you’d never think an outfit could go together until someone like Serena wears it. She mixes summer and fall colors with a turquoise and silver Gryphon checker tee and a beige-brown Gryphon button skirt.
