Gossip Girl Season 3, Episode 1: 'Reversals of Fortune' - OMG or WTF? - Featured

Welcome back, Upper East Siders! We got our most delicious guilty pleasure of Gossip Girl back with the Season 3 premiere, 'Reversals of Fortune,' so what did you think?

Was it as shockingly dramalicious as you'd hoped or did you find the Season 3 premiere to be too much catch-up leaving the real drama of the summer to our imaginations?

It seems like the 'Chair' drama may be a bit strained now that they're actually together, and Serena having another crazy summer with another crazy guy and the not-so-shocking revelation that things didn't go so well with her dad, plus Nate having another new summer fling... it all seems a little old hat and like a bunch of dead ends. But maybe there's hope for dramatic revival?

HATED IT!!!! Wow, Serena rode off on a horse. Apparently the biggest event of the entire episode. I'm bored. Please get back to your privileged, bitchy, dramatic, slutty selves immediately. I hold out hope for next Mon :(

Absolutely sucked. It was ridiculous. Hate Serena. Hate. She was just stupid. That whole storyline was stupid. Like her dad spends his time travelling Europe by reading trashy gossip mags. I second IqraA and hope that Georgina can revive the show otherwise I won't be watching it much longer.

i thought it was actually pretty great. I mean everyone knew what was going to happen with all the sneek peeks we watched and of course the spoilers but remember this, it's just the beginning.xo.

Not the most shocking season opener so far, but I feel like they have laid a lot of good ground work. I am most excited for the "Other son" drama, but I worry that GG will build it up and then not give it a juicy enough climax. They have a habit of building up huge potential for drama then squandering it away in one lousy episode. I just hope they have improved their follow through and turn every dramatic element into the great television they are capable of.

Grrrrr I detest Serena after this premiere, she is so irritating, her storylines are ALWAYS anti-climaxes....She kills someone ooohhh interesting - oh no someone just died taking his own drugs.She goes to Spain and gets married - oh no wait she didn't.She flies off to find her Dad - and..... nothing no stories to tell no Daddy in the picture.
Chuck & Blair - Yay they're together but will it last? I highly doubt. I do still ADORE them though <3Nate & Megan (she will always be Megan [Privileged] in my mind) - BoringDan, Jenny & Rufus are rich - It all seems a bit too easy :(Vanessa & Scott - This could be interesting I hope :D
However there has been so much promised for this series I'm so looking forward to: Chuck's gay kiss, Serena & Chuck's fall out, Tyra's cameo, Georgina............the list goes on

wait...what? Hilary Duff's coming on? As what? Wow that should be something.I didn't like the Chuck-Blair game. It can only lead to trouble. I don't understand Serena's fixation with her father. He left her,why would she want him?Dan's become a prick. And he looks like he just came from the 70s. Not diggin the hair. Lovin Eric and Jenny though.

Chair made me happier than it ever has before. They're so into games, it makes perfect sense that they want to play around with roles and things. Hell, Chuck gets to flirt and Blair gets to be a bitch? How fun! As long as they love each other, AWESOME ... but I do have my doubts about Chuck leaving the party alone with a headache, and I'd really appreciate if they could give us the honeymoon just a few episodes.:-/
And I'm not going to talk about Serena, because, well, there is nothing to talk about. Boring.

I definitely don't like Serena right now, but the episode was fantastic anyway. I'm loving the "chair" drama and I can't wait for all them to be in college!!!It's getting really interesting, hope it continues this way!!!!
