Last night's Gossip Girl was full of scandal, but perhaps most noteworthy was Blair Waldorf's full-fledged assault on not-so-innocent new teacher Rachel Carr. I am, of course, referring to Blair's sending the rumor of Dan and Rachel hooking up to Gossip Girl before she had any "exculpatory evidence" (because Blair "loves Damages ", far and wide my favorite quote of the night). Just when you thought Blair had become softened, she goes and pulls questionably her most evil act ever! What do you think? Where does Blair's stunt rank on a scale of evil? Has she done anything worse? Additionally, Dan and Serena are of course broken up again . Who's hoping it will actually stick this time? Lastly, I come bearing some unfortunate news; there is no new Gossip Girl for the rest of February, so you can ponder on these issues for awhile... Source: TV Squad
In last night's entertaining episode of Gossip Girl , "You've Got Yale" - and this season in general - I've been noticing how in each episode, at least one major character all but disappears with no explanation. This week, Jenny was 100% absent. 2 weeks ago, both Nate and Vanessa were entirely gone. Also this week, Nate and Vanessa had quite minimal screen time - and their storyline was pretty inconsequential to the episode at large. If you think about it, Dan didn't have all too much going on either, besides whining on about Serena not wanting to go to the same college as him and the genesis of some sort of inappropriate student/teacher relationship. Too bad they don't live in Washington state ... And...while there has been way less Nate, Jenny and Vanessa, there has been twice as much Rufus and Lily. So...do you like this style of individual episodes leaving out certain characters to give a greater focus on other ones? Would you rather see every character in every episode...but for slightly less time? Would you rather they toned down the Rufus/Lily grossness? Do you even feel all that much chemistry between them (sorry, but for me they are no Sandy and Kirsten Cohen...)?
I hope im not the only one, but while watching this episode i found myself skipping all the rufus-lily bits and alot of the Serena, jenny and eric bits....im a chair fan and was dying to know what jack and blairs secret was, and plus i had read the spoilers about rufus/lily & the serena/dan story was predictable so ther was no point watching those bits! It's not usually like Gossip Girl to leave things secret for more than one episode so they should have really given us the dirty on blair/jack already! And good on Blair for standing up for herself against Chuck...however i hope this isnt the end of chair becasue that would be a shame. Shocked that Chuck didnt realise Jacks intentions earlier...he's clearly not on the ball anymore...i liked the chuck that was always one step ahead of everyone else! Chuck and Blair should team up to exterminate Jack once and for all....it's been ages since chair have worked together to oust someone!
Last night's episode of Gossip Girl put last week's big question on the total back burner ...unless I slept through some explanation of whatever happened between Blair and Jack Bass. I assume this issue will be revisited soon. This week...we follow Rufus and Lily to Boston where they search for their long-lost son. Dan is still hiding this tidbit from Serena, but thanks to a recently-turned-evil Nellie Yuki and an unfortunately descriptive text message courtesy of Vanessa, the news is soon public. So...while not technically related genetically, Dan and Serena now share a half-sibling. Is is gross if they still date? What if their parents are dating (or at least sleeping together) too? Imagine the explanation to the long lost Andrew: Lily : Hi son, I'm your mother and Serena is my daughter. Rufus : Hi son, I'm your father and Dan is my (other) son. Dan : I'm your half brother! Serena : I'm your half sister! Lily : So...btw I'm dating Rufus and Dan is dating Serena. Basically we're all dating each other. But somehow it's all legal. I swear. Rufus : You can't, however, date Jenny. That would be illegal. Welcome to the family, son. Time to choose your Gossip Girl couples, because I think it's safe to say that it would be all too disturbing if Rufus/Lily and Serena/Dan stick together once the dead-half-brother-who-isn't-actually-dead comes to town. So...which couple would you rather see together? Rufus and Lily? Serena and Dan? Both (because somehow you don't think it's weird)? Neither?
Why is Gossip Girl so popular? They have steamy scenes, deadly scandals, and everything that anyone could ever dream of having in an entertaining show. But what about Desperate Houswives, or Dirty Sexy Money? Or all of those other soaps? They may have different settings and characters, but there are the same themes in each. Money, sex, drugs and alcohol, etc. All of those soap operas out there are the same. Maybe Gossip Girl is so well-liked because of the young and fresh faces we see on the TV screen. And the youth may like to relate to that. They want to get away from their own boring lives and get an insight on others that have more edge, and well, gossip. How is Gossip Girl going to change in the next few seasons? New characters maybe, but I predict the plot will be dead and old soon.
It has been a week, but i still cant get over the emotion in the Chuck Blair bed scene (o brother where bart thou?). Using bloc party- Signs, as the backing song made it even more beautiful, some of the lyrics go with the situation, every time i listen to the song, it reminds me of the scene and makes me so sad!!! the scene was more than what it actually was, if you know what i mean, you kind of got a flashback of their whole relationship and all that they've been through. especially chuck, the hard as rock guy who's not so tough when with blair. this bed scene just showed how much he needs her and vice-versa. i just hope they get together long term and stay together, even if GG have to make them break up a few times just for GG drama, i dont care as long as they are a couple in the end. they need to be. unfortunatley i heard the GG writer say they are going to revisit Blair/Nate near the end of the season, i hope this isnt at the expense of Blair/Chuck and whatever happens she and chuck work it out in the end. GG is nothing without Chair. Im sure you all agree... now go listen to Bloc Party- Signs and you'll see what i mean...if you dont get emotional then theres something wrong with you...!!! take care fellow GG fans, we now wait in anticipation for episode 14!
I sure hope not, I still want a chance! Heres The Link
OK, i understand this wasn't the time for chuck to be thinking about loving Blair, his dad just died, and he was feeling like s***, but he could have at least hugged her properly at the end! OK, it took a lot for him to back down and come back to her, but that little touch of Blair's arm when she held him on the bed could have been a bit more!!! his acting this season has been amazing and episode 13 was just the best by far and judging by the promo for the next episode we can bet on it getting better!! i love the new side they are showing of him this season, the caring, human side to him, the side he only ever shows to Blair, yet they can still both be bitchy when needed! but when they are together it just makes me smile cuz they are sooo cute!!! even though i think their conversations need to be longer! i hate the fact that none of my friends watch gossip girl, in fact no-one i know watches it, so i can never talk to anyone about it!!! AAARRGHH!!!
i really wish the new episode would post please please please..
Arguably one of the top two most interesting characters on the show, Chuck Bass has gone through some changes in the last 1 1/2 seasons. In the season one pilot, he wanders around Central Park smoking a joint while razzing Nate for not yet taking Blair's virginity. This is the mildest of the offensive things he does/says in the episode. Chuck spots Serena drinking her troubles away at a hotel bar (presumably his father's). She mentions hunger. He baits her with the promise of a grilled cheese with truffle oil and she follows him back to the kitchen. Thinking a sandwich is a fair trade for sex, he tries to force himself on her. She gets free from his evil clutches by kicking him in the balls. ...continue reading
