When last we left off on “Gossip Girl,” Blair (Leighton Meester) had just entered into a loveless marriage with Louis (Hugo Becker). This was quickly followed by a great escape with Dan (Penn Badgley), allowing her the space to figure out how to get out of this predicament. So what happens next…
The runaway bride and Lonely Boy head off to the airport. Blair seems to be under the assumption that the Dominican Republic allows for divorce without the consent of both parties, as Elizabeth Taylor once did did it. But there are only two problems with this plan, 1) she doesn’t have her passport, 2) Louis is looking for her.
Much of the episode is a cat and mouse game around NYC – at least the fashionable boroughs – and everyone is involved. As much as Blair tries to escape, the tentacles of the royals and Gossip Girl are too much. She’s ultimately caught at an airport hotel. It is here that Serena (Blake Lively) “admits” to Blair she was the one who sent the video to Gossip Girl. It is also here that Louis’ mother tells her that unless she gets back together with her son, the Waldorfs are going to be on the hook for a sizable dowry.
In the end, Blair decides to suck it up and jet off with Louis. But if we’re guessing right, she’s got a plan up her very fashionable sleeve that will help her get out of this mess.
Uh oh. Uh oh.
