Georgina's Back on Gossip Girl...


Michelle Trachtenberg will reprise the role of mean-girl Georgina on several upcoming episodes of Gossip Girl.


We think Trachtenberg is a fine actor (she had some fun sending up a Britney-type pop tart on Six Feet Under, if you recall), but the Georgina-Serena face-off never quite came together for us. I know the producers want us to believe that S. used to be a man-eating party girl, but as played by Blake Lively, she's as harmless as a basket of kittens fresh from the dryer. So when G. came to town all "I know who you killed last summer," she just seemed kind of cruel, right? Not to mention that S. ultimately didn't actually kill anyone really. Frankly, we welcomed the end of that futile storyline and Georgina's departure from the scene.


So why bring her back? When we last saw G., she had gotten her proper comeuppance and was being shipped off to mythical bad-girl boarding school (it's just outside of Bridgeport, Conn., I hear), unrepentant for her girl-on-girl crimes. Do we really need more Georgina?


What do you think? Are you excited to hear she'll be back or do you think another G. spotting on Gossip Girl is totes lame?

I felt like her character served her purpose when she was on, but it also seemed like she was dropped pretty abruptly without following through with her very well, so I think it'd be fine if she never came back, but sounds interesting enough to have her stir up a little more drama and maybe give better closure to her character this time around.

She actually does the whole bad-girl thing much better than Serena. If they incorporated her into a more sophisticated plot than Serena's bad conscience, she might bring some new life to the relationship-warped plot that's starting to wear thin (seriously, has anyone in the cast not been involved everyone on the main cast of the opposite gender???).

i think that she's all talk no action, like the whol build up about the secret REALLy bad thing that serena had done (watch a guy overdose) was a HUGE let down, georgina is just way over the top and the writers just cant seem to pull through with the plot when she's there
