bonfire of the LAME (non-specific spoilers)

This entire episode was one of the worst GG episodes i have seen. Mrs. Waldorf found true love in one episode, Blair gained a conscious, everything worked out for Dan, chuck didn't do anything nasty, Serena was a total dork, I don't know how I can describe the awefulness of this episode. Did they hire new writers? GG isn't about happy endings and the characters' clean morality.

I give it a ten fingers down.

I agree, I was bored out of my mind. The only same thing going on in this episode was Jenny being a whiny brat. I wanted to see where her & Nate's relationship was going but they didn't even have him in this episode. The whole second season of GG has been going downhill, I think it's because without Dan & Serena together it's just awkward.

You're right, this episode wasn't as good as it was rushed, but i wouldn't call it terrible. I thought Jenny and Agnes fight was all a bit sudden, and it leaves Jenny nowhere to go yet be emancipated. Chuck was just so boring, he didn't even try to stop Dan with the story, but luckily he gave in easy, which was also quite lame. And Blair was completely diffferent and much more soft towards Elanors boyfriend. Everyone changed in this episode and there seemed to be too many stories going on at once, leaving not enough time to explain and elaborate them better. What a let down. :(

the last few, although having massive potential to be riveting and exciting, have flopped due to a few simple things involving character interaction.
remember how everyone says ed westwick could create chemistry with a chair? let him then. the guy is getting little to no face time, so we get no witty remarks, sexual innuendos or even character conflict with the likes of dan, nate, vanessa, blair and serena. let the cat out of the bag. he is being WAY to mellow lately. another thing is that someone needs to pick out the pink elephant in the room and do something with chucks daddy issues. the storyline there is immense and what they showed in this episode at the end could have summed up something like a massive fight, but no, it was nothing instead.
serena is acting like a dick. bitchy as always that everything isnt her way. her character needs to go with the flow a bit more. also, by taking her away from all the characters and making ALL her interactions with only Arron, it is taking away from potential conflict with other characters or even relationships that aren't completely bland.
eric needs to come back and fix jenny. though at the moment, her storyline is the only interesting one, and that is coming from someone who dislikes jenny greatly (me). the edge is right on, but they need to stop watering it down with other pointless and annoying storylines around it.
blair's birthday. where to stop. remember last season? conflict and make up sex with chuck? booyah. that was one of the most intriguing episodes as far as story went and the way it was centered around her birthday was perfect. this time her 18th was bland and nothing eventful even happened. cindy made a horrible cameo, she is clearly a terrible actor. if I were editing this, I would have cut that out so fast... but back to blair, her conniving schemes are on target just she isnt aiming for the center. by that I mean, involve the other major characters please!
that is the main issue. why were the earlier episodes better? besides the tension between chuck and blair, it was the interaction with all the characters, the school setting, and how their plans to foil each other were all intertwined. does anyone even hear the gossip girl anymore? I just watched this episode and dont remember hearing her voice at all. they have removed the aspect of conflict through gossip altogether, and it is going to be their downfall.
example: blair's social suicide in season 1, when chuck told gossip girl she slept him both nate and himself in one week. that text message caused a major conflict in the story that lasted a few episodes, and it was amazing. things built off it and the story became deeper. since then everything has been smoothed over and no bombs are dropped through GG.
someone important needs to read this and freaking realize this is the problem right now.CONFLICT!!!!

Yeah i totally agree, it needed some conflict, or even some buildup to conflict in a future episode would have been fine but it felt like they were just resolving everything, the only interesting thing really is the jenny thing, and i liked her in the past few episodes but she is becoming really annoying, and the model going crazy was completely out of the blue, i think they jsut didnt know where they were going with her and they wanted her to fail in some way so that she doesnt become a famous designer, because thats where it seemed like it was going. I'm sure they know this was a bad episode, sometimes i wonder what goes on behind the scenes though, and what they were thinking..

Same, I totally agree. I mean yeah, Jenny's got her own fashion line down, and she's going solo and all but that's been going on for the last couple of episodes so its kind of getting a bit boring. The next episode doesn't sound so good either, at least concerning Jenny.
