This week instead of celebrating Halloween (the UES is over it), we’re celebrating bigger and better things like Blair’s 20th birthday. Per usual, it’s a major production that just so happens to include a guest appearance by pop sensation, Robyn.

As I mentioned last week, things are continuing to heat up in the Blair and Chuck saga. I promise by the end of this episode you will finally get to hear how the saga ends, or at least ends for the moment. It’s worth the wait, so keep reading! Before we get to that, the big storyline this episode is Dan and Eric’s plot to destroy Blair and her party after what she did to poor little Jenny last week. You know, the Tim Gunn debacle where Blair had “WHORE” written all over J’s dresses. Dan is the mastermind who gets Eric to team with him to take on Blair. The two of them plot together but ultimately it’s Dan who has to take the lead when Eric pusses out, or smartens up, however you want to look at it. Rather than drag things out like they did, I’ll get straight to the action. Dan somehow snags pop singer Robyn to come to Blair’s party, which would be a really sweet gesture if it wasn’t for his true motives. It turns out Robyn has some humiliating video footage of Blair taken in Stockholm. The footage is of Blair wasted singing “Stand By Your Man” on stage while Chuck tries his best to get her off the stage. Gasp! Honestly, is this what GG has come to is lame controversies like this? I could’ve done better in my sleep. Step up your game, Humphrey! In the end, the video really wasn’t all that bad. It actually may have done a little good because it led to Blair and Eleanor having a talk which was a long time coming. After all of this went down we got a performance by Robyn of her song “Hang with Me.”

Serena and Nate teamed together this week to end the feud between Chuck and Blair. They actually had some serious treaty made between the two, legit paperwork and all.  They don’t screw around in the UES. We’ll see how long the treaty lasts though…

Meanwhile, Serena and Nate are still also engulfed in the mystery storyline of Juliet. At the end of last week’s episode we discovered that Juliet is somehow connected with Serena’s new boytoy/professor, Colin. We find out this week that Colin is Juliet’s cousin. This also makes him Ben’s (the guy in prison) cousin. The twist is that Colin isn’t part of Juliet and Ben’s twisted scheme to bring down Serena and Nate, and Colin and Ben actually don’t get along at all. It’s still very unclear exactly what the scheme is all about and how it’s all going to come together but clearly the writer’s must have some vision going here. Either that or they are winging this each week, which is probably the better guess.  The only hint we get is when Ben tells Juliet that Serena needs to be held responsible for what she did. What did she do though and how Nate comes into this is anyone’s guess. Perhaps, this has something to do with Serena’s affair with Nate’s cousin, Tripp, the congressman? Just a theory I’m throwing out there. Anyway, the next move in this plot is that Juliet sets up a secret cam that captures Colin and Serena kissing. I think it was meant to catch a lot more than some kissing but (surprisingly) Serena is being a good girl this week.

Enough with all of these other boring storylines, time to get to the juicy one and that is the steamy Chuck and Blair scene that ends the episode. After Blair’s birthday party Chuck sticks around and surprises Blair. The two end up tossing the treaty to the side and have crazy, make up sex like we haven’t seen in quite some time on the UES. I think I speak on behalf of every viewer when I say… it’s about damn time! By the looks of it we’re in for more steamy Chuck and Blair sex scenes next week so stay tuned!
