  • Dan and Serena are trapped in an elevator during a blackout, but they aren't the only ones in a predicament!

    Blair is throwing another one of her party's and everyone is going to be there. Blair is bringing Marcus, Serena is bringing Dan, Nate is bringing Vanessa, but the Duchess has something to say about that. We'll start there...The Duchess is being very, very overbearing on Nate and does nothing to let him out of her sight. He's already lied to Catherine about who he was talking to on the phone because he really likes Vanessa, but is trapped under Catherine's money. The Duchess and Blair decide to work together to get Nate to bring Vanessa to the party, where we see the blackout occur as well. Nate confesses everything to Vanessa about Catherine and tells Vanessa he is going to break it off. While he is away, Catherine finds Vanessa and confronts her, but when Nate returns he only finds Catherine, who tells him Vanessa had left. Nate catches up to Vanessa and she tells him to stay with Catherine because she really loves him. Come to find out, Catherine told Vanessa that if she didn't break it off with Nate, she would tell the FBI where Nate's dad was hiding out. Meanwhile, Chuck is having a hard or not-so-hard time pleasing the ladies. He is having Blair block and can't get it out of his head. He decides the night of the party will be the night to hook up with Blair. You see, Blair is frustrated because Marcus, the Lord, has yet to show Blair any kind of satisfaction, so sure she starts making out with a guy in the dark. Is it Marcus? NOPE it is Chuck, who turns on his real-life English accent to pretend to be Marcus. The two get caught by Marcus making out pretty hot and heavy in Blair's bedroom. Blair tells Marcus she only wants to be loved and to have some affection showed towards her, but Marcus is over it, and Chuck is left feeling somewhat satisfied. Dan and Serena get stuck in her building's elevator when the power goes out and are forced to confront their rocky past. Serena tells Dan she forgives him for cheating on her and Dan also is sorry for everything, but the couple are on the verge of a break up. When they exit the elevator, they part ways, both wanting to say they loved each other, but neither one said it to the other. True love is a mother!!
