Blair (Leighton Meester) enlists Serena (Blake Lively) to be her stand-in at an important meeting when Blair finds herself needing to be in two places at the same time.
Serena's jealousy, incredulity at B for not reciprocating Dan's love, and general lack of direction in life reach critical mass when she got a little too excited playing Dan's girlfriend again.
She sends in a page from B's diary to GG, exposing the fact that she may be hedging in reciprocating Dan's love. Just as B agreed to go to Italy with him, too. Crazy.
Meanwhile, Ivy (Kaylee DeFer) and Lola (guest star Ella Rae Peck) team up to help Chuck (Ed Westwick) with a personal vendetta, and entrap the businessman who sought to kill Bart.
They expose him, by nailing Andrew Tyler, and Bart is free to show his face again on the Upper East Side. He has yet to tell Lily about his return from the dead, however.
Nate (Chace Crawford) makes a decision about the future with Diana Payne (guest star Elizabeth Hurley). He decides to let her walk away and begin anew in London.
Blair: That was your agent. She wants you to reconsider the program in Rome. Which is odd, because you told me they went with someone else.
Dan: Ah, well, yesterday when you ended up with Chuck I was a little nervous about leaving for the whole summer. And I know you told me there were other people there and it was not romantic, but... come on. It's Chuck.
Blair: So you lied to me.
Dan: I figured you would just think I was some jealous freak if I told the truth.
Blair: Well maybe because you are. But you don't have to be. You have nothing to worry about. Take the offer. It's an amazing opportunity and I would never stand in the way of it.
Dan: It means the entire summer apart.
Blair: But it's not like I can't come visit. Rome is just two glasses of chardonnay away.

Chuck: So the car accident was real?
Bart: I was lucky to survive it. But it wasn't an accident. I'd been threatened.
Chuck: By who?
Bart: A very powerful competitor of mine. I had information on some transactions of his that could have put him away for a very long time. But his threats didn't work.
Chuck: They had someone ram your limo with a truck? Dad, You could have gone to the police. You didn't have toâ€”
Bart: Yes, I did. He'd made it quite clear that both you and Lily were fair game. Once I realized his threats weren't empty, the only way out was to make him think he'd already one. Once I got to the hospital tonight I figured that would be my best chance.
Chuck: So what, you just paid some doctors to switch off the machines? Hope Lily was crying so much that she wouldn't notice you were actually still breathing? What did we bury in that coffin?
Bart: Charles, I am here with you now, trying to explain.
