Oh Brother, Where Bart Thou?

What a freakin kickass episode.


It´s about time for a death on Gossip Girl, and I have to say I wasn´t too sad to see Bart go. (He´s mean and I always thought he looked like a creepy fish.) In fact most people seemed more shocked than sad at his passing - only Chuck was really affected.


Speaking of, Ed Westwick was amazing in this episode. (And he looked really hot with his sensitive eyes and for once unkempt hair.) Leighton Meester was also great. I really felt for her when she told Chuck she loved him: ¨Too bad.¨ And their spooning was very cute. I was upset when he disappeared at the end. Chuck also rejected poor Eric, who tried to reach out to his ¨brother.¨ At least Jonathan returned - it seems they´re the one couple getting back together.


More cuteness: the Waldorf-Rose wedding - and Derrota looking pretty!


Dan and Serena alllmost made it back together this week, and as much as I think Dan´s a judgmental idiot, I like him better than that new guy Aaron and his gross facial hair. If only she´d answered that phone! It was pretty gentlemanly of Aaron to say he knows about Serena´s feelings for Dan and is falling in love with her anyway. Buenos Aires does sound cool. But really, the Humphrey and Van der Woodsen families are not lucky in love this week.


The big story: Rufus and Lily! As I suspected, Lily was in the hospital to have an abortion, and Rufus was presumably the father. Again, they almost got back together - until Cece intervened. I hate her, as I´m sure I´m supposed to, but I guess I can´t fault her too much for supporting honesty in this case. If Rufus wasn´t such a crazy romantic I don´t think this would be such a big deal. I mean, it was like 20 years ago, and Lily was probably in her early twentis if that. It´s her hot body and she can do what she wants!


So, any thoughts? Is anyone else rooting for the Chuck/Blair, Serena/Dan and Rufus/Lily trifecta? Strangely enough, this episode almost brought me to tears - but not because of the death, but because of the could-have-beens of these three couples.

Hmm, are you sure it was an abortion and not just.... giving birth and an adoption? It would definitely heat up the plot...

I was just thinking that maybe Lily went to the Ostroff Center to have a baby and hide the whole pregnancy thing instead of recuperating from the emotional distress of having an abortion...

actually Lily went to france to give birth to her and rufus' son andrew who lily gave up for adoption...in the next episodes lily and rufus go to meet with the adoptive parents and find their son but the adoptive mother breaks down crying and refuses to speak. the father then tells them that andrew was killed in a boating accident a few years ago and hands them a newspaper clipping with his picture.

1: i think Chuck is a stupid ass for leaving blair :(2: why is it such a big problem for Dan and Serena dating at the same time as Lily and Rufus? Ok, it's a bit weird, but it's not such a big deal? It's not like they are blood related or anything. Somebody?

hmm yeah i think your right Mallory, even thought it is weird no one said they cant all date together :s....
Lauren..how do you know what the future episodes are?
I dont like the whole serena and aaron thing, id rather sarena and dan.
as for blair and chuck they may have their own odd relationship going on but it works for them, and i like them together, this espisode i almost cried when i saw chuck in her room, glad she still wasnt a b*tch to him after seeing his face.
as for lily and rufus, well i guess its easy for some to say get over it, but having an abortion when it is not wanted or even giving up a child for an adoption is not the same as a toy, its a very heavy emotional issue and lots of people cant get over it. now this is just a tv show, however its made to look real soo in this case i could see the reason as to rufus's acting and how lily could have felt.
