Farewell Eva
In Touch of Eva, Chuck gifts Eva with an expensive Cartier watch and brings her several charity events where he is honored for his donations. However, Blair is jealous of their relationship and goes to see how much the watch he bought actually cost. While at Cartier, she sees Eva returning the watch and films her being given the cash. Hoping this will tear the couple apart she shows the video to Chuck but when asked about it, Eva says that Chuck's valet, Ivan, has a family who is about to lose his childhood home and she couldn't wear something so decadent when it could help people who truly need it. Chuck accepts this and announces that he is planning a five million charity donation but he wants Eva to choose who gets the money. Blair decides to accompany Eva while she visits the sits of the charities and instructs Serena and Dan to look into Eva's past while she obtains information on her past. Blair is able to learn enough about Eva to allow Dan to discover that she was a prostitute back in Prague. He accidentally lets this slip to Nate, who tells Chuck.

Meanwhile, Lily has received his belongings from the Paris police and gives them to Ivan to put away. Later, Chuck announces that he is opening The Eva Coupeau Foundation and she can divvy out the five million to whoever she pleases. Shocked at this, Blair obtains Chuck's belongings from Ivan, which includes his passport, and plants them in Eva's suitcase. She then tells Chuck that she has proof Eva knew who he was before they returned and shows him. When Eva discovers what happened, Chuck breaks up with her and asks her to leave. However, Lily later tells him that she only just got his belongings back and gave them to Ivan. Realizing Blair set them up, Chuck rushes upstairs to stop Eva but she breaks up with him, citing he's still connected to Blair. She tells him not to forget her and her influence and leaves.

Eva: Well, the you I've been living with never did anything to be ashamed of. I hope... I hope you'll bring some of him with you back to your world.

Chuck: I fully intend to. If you'll come with me.
