Gossip Girl Episode Synopsis: "The Fugitives"

at . Comments

Looks like Serena is taking a page from her fake cousin's book.

On the second-to-last episode of Gossip Girl's fifth season, titled "The Fugitives," Serena poses as Blair at an important meeting when B finds herself needing to be in two places at the same time.

Blake Lively playing Blair was teased in the spoilers we posted yesterday, and this helps explain it somewhat. Unlike Ivy's tangled web of lies, at least Blair is apparently in on this identity switch-up.

The question is ... why? What meeting is so important that it can't be moved? And where else does Blair have to be at the exact same time? We're interested to read your theories in the comments.

Speaking of Ivy, she teams up with Lola in this episode (airing May 7) to help Chuck with a personal vendetta, while Nate makes a decision about the future with the mysterious Diana Payne.

Gossip Girl Season 5 Episode 23 Quotes

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 to—
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.
