And some masks we wear because we hope to stay hidden. But that's the problem with wearing masks. They can be ripped off at any moment. XOXO —Gossip Girl

Diana: Everything's set.
William: Good. Very good.
Diana: You should never have doubted me.
William: You've done a fine job rehabilitating my grandson's image. He's right where I need him to be.
Diana: And Serena's right where we need her too. Always a pleasure working with you, William.

Some masks we put on because it's truly who we want to be. Some we wear because we can't bear to face what's really underneath. Or because it's what someone else needs us to be.

Gossip Girl: We all wear different masks for different reasons.
Diana: Nate, you matter to me. A lot. I was just trying to be cool. You know that's my thing. Although I'm beginning to see I may need a new thing. From now on, equals.
Nate: Just us. Together. Seeing what happens.

Lock your windows, Upper East Siders. Looks like Serena's cuckoo cousin Charlie is off her meds again. And about to jump to her own conclusion.

Nate: So I don't get it, you kissed Blair so she'd think you hadn't changed?
Chuck: The only way for Blair to move on is if she thinks I never will. I had to kiss her to set her free.
Nate: That may be the most selfless thing you've ever done.
Chuck: I've never been more good and less happy about it.

All masks eventually have to come off, and with them so do the gloves.

I'm not going to drop everything because you tell me to, Ivy. You walked out on me.

It was one thing to feel like my book wasn't exactly appreciated in the Upper East Side—I expected that—but then the readings on the tour, they were less and less full. In Hartford I think like ten people showed up, and half of them were there to get out of the rain. My book is a failure, Dad. I'm a failure.
