After a brief recess, Gossip Girl picked back up last night with Episode 4 of the teen dramedy’s *sniffle* sixth and final season. “Portrait of a Lady Alexander” opens with Nate (Chace Crawford) mourning the loss of Dan’s (Penn Badgley) Upper East Side exposé to Vanity Fair. And just to make matters worse, what’s the subject of Lonely Boy’s second Inside installation? Nate’s majorly under-performing, spiralling Spectator. Dan’s scathing review of the young Archibald’s character sends up red flags with Sage’s (Sofia Black-D’Elia) father/Serena’s (Blake Lively) boyfriend Steven Spence (Barry Watson) who threatened to force Sage to stop seeing Nate. Serena saves Sage’s day and relationship, endorsing Nate’s many good guy qualities and convincing her boo Steven to give her friend a shot.
Meanwhile, Blair (Leighton Meester) takes a break from helming Waldorf Designs to help Chuck (Ed Westwick) figure out what his father Bart (Robert John Burke) has been hiding and why he faked his death all those years ago. His pursuit for the truth drives the wedge further between father and son but also between Bart and Lily (Kelly Rutherford). Lily does her best to transition smoothly to life after Rufus (Matthew Settle), but leaving the relics of her old life in a Brooklyn loft with a vengeful Ivy Dickens (Kaylee DeFer) is a recipe for trouble, but if you haven’t caught up yet, we won’t spoil the rest for you. Check back here weekly for our fashion recap!
