When the divorce papers arrive, Blair is shocked, believing that Georgina must have worked quickly. Dan is thrilled, thinking that he and Blair can finally date publicly. When Blair seems to hesitate, though, Dan turns to Nate to see if it has anything to do with Chuck.
Nate tells him the truth: Chuck paid Blair's dowry. Dan assumes that Blair's hesitation stems from missing Chuck, but when he confronts her about it, he discovers that she knew nothing of the dowry. Angry, Blair challenges Chuck, saying, "You thought you could buy me back." Dejectedly, he explains that he simply wanted to set her free.
