It's the anniversary of Bart's death -- not that Lily even remembers! -- so Chuck is hallucinating Ghost Bart calling him a wuss all over town and goading him to foreclose on some homeless deaf blind vets or something. Blair gets totally freaked out about his encrazening, and even goes to Lily to help. But it turns out really this is all because of "feelings" and suddenly there's a whole storyline out of nowhere about how Chuck is pushing Blair and feelings away until Blair points out in a tearjerker scene that Chuck is pretty much awesome.
Then Chuck stares in a doorway at a hospital and has spontaneous therapy feelings and stops hallucinating and learns to care again or whatever, but he runs into that hot lady from Mulholland Drive at Bart's grave and just barely restrains himself from Hamletting, "...Mother?" I dunno. The acting is good, the continuity is cool, but the story itself is purely One Tree Hill, and really inappropriate, and seems like a big part of next year's story. Doesn't it sort of shit on Chuck's entire storyline last year if his mom is alive?
