  • He says he’s going to deviate from the teleprompter…

“Gossip Girl.. all new episodes coming soon.” My ass!

Okay, so it really was a good episode.. one of the better ones of the season.

First, Serena. I’ve been over this a million times.. I’m just so sick of her. Tremendously naive, childish, moronic, whore. Tripp is just as bad with this whole Serena obsession.. All politicians should be students of history! Does this whole plot line not remind ANYONE of Henry VIII (surely Blair would have seen the similarities)? She’ll be beheaded for witchcraft within a few months.. I don’t want to get into everything with his wife or the letter or any of that. Honestly, I’m not interested in anything that has to do with Serena. It’s all tired.

Hero Nate! Aww 🙂 he’s so friggin awesome right now.. from his guy chats with Dan (“Willa!”) to FINALLY handling Tripp the way a child needs to be handled (a little spanking never hurt anyone..), he is just full of win right now. But I wish he’d stop pining away for Serena.. she’s not worthy. And really, what’s there to love?

Dan – since season 2 I’ve always felt that while he IS super awkward, he’s best single and playing the field.. all this stuff with Vanessa strikes me as very odd. And by the way, I know she’s got this obsession with Paul Hoffman going on, but as Daily Intel at nymag.com has pointed out SEVERAL times, he is gaaaayyy.

Lily seems like she’s never going to realize that she’ll never keep a man if she keeps keeping secrets! Oh my goodness. As if the fact that she can’t keep those secrets under the rug isn’t enough, she gets all robotic when she’s keeping one and suffocates her relationship. It should be OBVIOUS to Rufus that she is hiding something.. even despite her best efforts to make him think it’s about the anniversary of Bart’s death (which I’m pretty sure she forgot about lol). Isn’t Rufus such a sweetie though?? When Lily and Rufus got married, everyone thought they were finally going to be all happy and rainbows.. and the relationship is already drowning. Le sigh.

Chuck Chuck Chuck.. what can I say about Chuck (besides that I LOVE him)? He’s always been my favorite character and I maintain the position that he is the best and most mature character on the show right now. His scene near the end with his father’s death and with Blair was very touching and I was glad to see him get some closure. I hope I’m not jinxing anything when I say that Blair + Chuck is an absolutely *golden* relationship. I’ve always felt like every show needs an anchor relationship to keep things steady and these two are certainly it. (Either them or Eleanor and Cyrus LOL).

Jenny, Eric, and the Dan+Vanessa love thing are all really minor considering everything else that has been going on and they’re really not worth talking about at the moment.

I’m sure I missed something (or just chose to glaze over it in my mind so I can keep a good image of tonight’s episode) but all in all I enjoyed it and I almost feel as though this show is headed back in a good direction. Except for the lack of GOOD BLAIR STORY LINES – get it together, writers!

Okay, Jordan out ❤

Nope, still not feeling Quinn and she’s still bringing my love for Clay down. I really hate that Brooke can’t stay happy for any substantial period of time. Obviously, the Australian is supposed to be the next love interest for her. I really wish they would just leave her and Julian alone and let Alex throw herself at the Australian. She does seem to fall in love almost immediately, so I don’t think it would be too hard for her to switch her focus.

Jordan: LOL Yeah, I don’t think March qualifies as soon right now. I do agree it was a good episode and one of the better ones this season. I liked last week’s, too.

I hardly ever agree with Serena’s behavior but for some reason, I don’t get frustrated with her in the same way I do with Blair. I really don’t know why that is.

I, too, loved Nate last night (though I don’t get how he’s comfortable giving both Dan and Serena advice on their love lives). I am dying to see Serena and Nate given their relationship ago, something I’ve been wanting since the show first started.

Dan is definitely super awkward. I guess that’s part of his charm. While I’ve never been a Vanessa fan, I am a bit intrigued by this storyline (even though I have trouble with Dan, out of nowhere, thinking he’s in love with her). I do think it’s possible he’s gay as well but I can’t see them going there.

Now Lily is someone that’s frustrating me! There’s really nothing she does, nothing she is, that’s admirable. She’s full of bad choice after bad choice, secret after secret, etc. I can’t see why Rufus would want to be with her, except for the nostalgia/memory factor. Now we don’t have all the facts yet about Lily and Serena & Eric’s dad but obviously there’s something shady. Sigh. Yes, her relationship with Rufus is drowning and I can tell you it’s only going to get worse.

I mostly agree with you on Chuck. I thought Ed Westwick killed it in this episode (he usually does, anyway) and the storyline was great. I have a love-hate relationship with him & Blair but I liked it tonight. I wouldn’t mind seeing more Eleanor and Cyrus–they are always quite enjoyable.

I can almost always do without Jenny/Eric storylines.

And I completely agree with your overall thoughts! =)

sane85: I’ll admit Clay and Quinn had me AWing and LOLing but overall I’m still not feeling it or her. Your Brooke comment is one that is said by a lot of fans because it’s so true. I wouldn’t be surprised if, in the end of this next storyline, Brulian are solid again and Alex is with the Australian. It would be quite convenient and a nicely wrapped package and so predictable right now that it’s kind of bothersome.
