'Gossip Girl' recap: D.I.A.F.
The whole Raina/Jack thing is pretty much a non-starter, as Uncle Jack pulls a double-cross on Russell and, with Nate's help, convinces Russell to come clean: Avery was planning to leave him for Bart, and the explosion was intended to get Bart and not Avery at all. Chuck chases Russell out of town, Raina dumps her dad forever, and Uncle Jack mostly just runs around being adorable and wacky.
Everybody goes to a big Constance/St. Jude's alumni thing -- Kati! Iz! Those weird S/B clone-children! -- where Blair hopes to fully reconcile with Louis and Serena and Blair have a lovely reunion. Charlie's gotten access to her trust fund, and has decided she no longer needs medication. After consulting a photograph of Serena's Cotillion dress and ponytail, she pulls another switcheroo on Serena, baiting her into attacking Charlie in front of Dan. Serena finally realizes maybe Vanessa isn't just being Vanessa, and they have a meeting at PRADA where Rufus confirms that Charlie is out of her goddamn mind.
