'Gossip Girl' recap: That Thump Was Myrtle Wilson
Nate finds himself stuck between his mother and the Captain, and it's all very back-and-forthy, but in the end he picks his dad over Anne and invites him to come live in the Empire instead of going to a halfway house. So I guess now the Captain is going to burn down Chuck's hotel or sell it for drugs or something. Which wouldn't be Chuck's only issue: Come to find out that Lily's moving fast to sell Bass Industries out from under him before he comes of age. By episode's end, he's off Down Under, presumably to grab Uncle Jack so he can rape Lily some more.
Turns out that Serena's daddy issues were still hitting hard, back in the day, but Ben somehow managed to gain S's respect and fond admiration by being the first and only man ever to turn her down. Little did she know, after running back to the UES, that Lily managed to sorta accidentally get him jailed for statutory, by signing Serena's name to an affidavit, in an attempt to... get her daughter back into Constance. (That part is confusing, especially given the fact that Eric was killing himself at the time, but to be fair even S points out how retarded it is.)
