Gossip Girl recap: Happily ever after?

Scott briefly went back to Boston to hide out after he lied about being their bastard son, but none other than Georgina convinced him to come back to New York so she could blackmail Vanessa into getting Dan to date/fuck her again. But as always, Georgina was outsmarted (well kind of). Vanessa told Dan about the blackmail and he played along pretending to get back with Georgina. But apparently Georgina has a thing for getting her ass grabbed, because Dan didn't grab her ass during a make-out sesh and she was not having it.

In true Georgina style, she waited for the perfect moment to blurt out to Rufus and Lily that their illegitimate child, who they were told had died in a tragic accident, was alive and right in front of them ... right before they were supposed to get married. In the end they did get married, Lily in her red dress making it very clear she was no virgin (considering that three of children were in the room), and Rufus in his black suit -- making it very clear he was not succumbing to the Upper East Side lifestyle. In the end, the wedding was a classic Rufus and Lily moment ... now let's see what happens with the marriage.

Rufus and Lily may really be married, but Chuck and Blair seem to be on that path. I never thought I would see the day that Chuck would look at Blair with loving eyes during the "I Dos" of a wedding. A Chuck and Blair wedding would complete my life, but I guess I will have to wait a few more seasons, unless there is an unexpected pregnancy and a quickie wedding. I mean, you never know with those two!

Carter Basin seems to have his own dirty wedding secret, and apparently conned his way into the Buckley family for their money by trying to marry in. But in true Carter fashion he did his disappearing act before the blessed event. The question now is whether Serena can trust him. She's no stranger to bad boys, but Carter is on a whole different level. He has new and crazier secrets every time we see him. I mean really -- any enemy of Chuck Bass has to be a serious badass.

We all search for our happily ever after. Maybe this will be it for these Upper East Siders.

Until next week,

You know you love me,

Every Upper East Sider loves a good wedding. The flowers, the toasts, the dress ... well, Lily's fifth wedding was anything but the usual affair. Besides actually marrying for love instead of money or status, Lily and Rufus' wedding (that was 20 years in the making) was spur of the moment. Just like the weed-induced proposal and the announcement of their love child right before the "I Dos" (Thank you, Georgina.) Not only was it spur of the moment, but it almost didn't happen.

Lily can never commit and always has a reason to run from Rufus, but after 20 years, a love child (a fake death of a love child), their children getting together, and Lily's four previous marriages, it's time for them to get together and stay together in holy matrimony til death do they part. But lets hope that doesn't happen too soon — Lily has already been a widow once.

But back to the love child:
