In this episode was Blair's 18th birthday. You would expect it to be as big as the Oscars, but it was as far from Blair Waldorf and the red carpet as possible.
Blair, this year, insists that she have a "grown-up" party. One in which, people don't drink like crazy, hookup with other peoples boyfriends, or play Guitar Hero. The only teens she invites are her followers from the Constance Billiard School for Girls. The rest of the guest list included their parents, Eleanor's business partners, and Chuck.
The party was pretty boring, I mean, how could it be cool? Jenny didn't crash it, Chuck didn't make a move, Nate didn't befriend anyone, etc. The most we got was from Isabel and the others getting turned on by some random lacrosse player 100 feet away.So unGossip Girl. So lame!
I must say, Blair's 17th birthday (episode: Seventeen Candles) was WAY better. This one was plain boring without action. For half the show I was convinced that this was one of Eleanor's business parties. Anyeays, Cindy Lauper appears in this episode, but only acts for 10 seconds...whatever!
Overall, Blair's party was lacking too much. I expected it to be at the Plaza Hotel or at the Met or at Butter or atleast at a bar. And, not only was the whole episode PG, (except for Blair's wierd naked dress. It was some wierd Frech-artist looking thing...with her whole bare back showing. If Chuck was there, he'd be in! O well, his loss) but nothing that happened meant anything much at her party.
