Ben’s mother comes to town, forcing issues to the surface between Ben and Serena. She hands over proof that Ben is innocent to Russell, who uses it to blackmail Chuck.
Lily is poised to turn herself in, but as Russell Thorpe is determined to destroy Chuck’s family legacy at all costs, he risks alienating his beloved daughter, Raina, in the process.
Raina is upset by his underhanded tactics, but there's more to this than completing a business deal. It turns out Raina's mother was the woman killed in the building Bart owned.
That's right, it's a reference to a random Season 2 scandal. In any case, he wants this company taken down hard. William returns to form a united front with Rufus and Lily.
Ben is vindicated but his future with Serena is up in the air. Also uncertain is where Nate and Raina go from here. Dan and Blair, meanwhile, provided the episode's big show.
Dorota busted Blair sneaking around with Dan. They haven't gotten physical yet, but sneak around as if they both want to. Finally, Dorota and Rufus talk to them and ...
... They come to their senses and kiss as the credits roll.
