  • The episode’s title is a play on the movie The 40 Year Old Virgin.
  • Both titles are grammatically incorrect and it bugs the hell out of me! Anyway…
  • Jenny is staying at the loft with Rufus. He’s running a tight ship and she’s hating it.
  • She’s going to school and must come home right after.
  • She leaves the loft and makes a call, saying she needs a car.
  • She lets down her hair and it’s greasy and wavy and just gross.

  • Q20: You know who she really is. You can see it in her eyes. In your eyes.–Blair
  • Chuck points out the evidence: she just showed up, she knows curious things and doesn’t want to be with Jack, the only person still alive who actually met his mom.
  • Elizabeth walks in. She heard everything.
  • Q21: I should’ve known you would never let me in. You are your father’s son.–Elizabeth

  • Q24: I woke up the morning after I lost my virginity to find that the person I lost it to, the person I loved, left town, never to be heard from again for a year. So, yeah, I had a good reason.–Nate

  • Q35: We’re celebrating you. For opening you heart to your mother. And me. For being the woman who encouraged you to do it.–Blair
  • Sweet but Blair still has to sneak her ego into it. Ugh/
  • They kiss.
  • Elizabeth answers her door. It’s Jack and the lawyer.
  • Q36: “Do we have ourselves a hotel?” “We do.”–Jack and Elizabeth
  • Fade to black.
  • Yikes! So Elizabeth is his mom but is working with Jack to screw Chuck. Unless there will be some double-backstabbing going on.
  • Preview: Nate says “Two words: role play,” cut to Vanessa dressed up for Dan like an old-fashioned housewife. The narrator says “There’s  high fashion, high-class call girls, and just plain high” as Agnes struts on a runway, the call girl from earlier this season is back (I forget her name), Blair says “Prostitutes are people, too,”  Jenny asks if someone put something in her drink, Agnes tells the guys holding a clearly drugged-Jenny to show her a good time, a bunch of rapid clips with the words “Let The Games Begin” intercut, Blair says, “If it’s a war Jack wants, then it’s a war he’ll get.”

Those are my thoughts. What’s yours?

I’m happy that Serenate’s first time was brought up in this way and there is resolution to how everything went down. I sort of get why Nate was so interested in Jenny’s drama, but at the party when she left with Damien it would have made a lot more sense if her BROTHER went to find her, Nate is an ex-ish figure.

Brandon M

Not much to say about this episode other than I liked it. It somewhat reminded me of classic season 1 Gossip Girl.

23 03 2010

Alyssa: You’re right. Totally should’ve been Dan going after Jenny. I think that’s the part the bothered me. I bought Nate’s explanation overall but that was taking it a little too far, as her brother was right there and, of course, her dad was in the building, too. And, yes, very happy that they discussed Serenate’s first time!

Brandon: Interesting, Brandon. I actually liked the last 2 eps better than this one. This one was just okay for me–but I can’t put my finger on why exactly. Can you elaborate on why it felt like classic season 1 to you?

23 03 2010

I reaally liked this episode too Brandon. This week and last week brought us back to the way GG use to be with the cliff hangers, sex, manipulation, and Serena ending up feeling dumb haha but seriously it gets better from here I think. I am also loving the Lily and Rufus drama.

23 03 2010

I liked the episode and can see how the show over all has made big leaps to bring it back to season 1 goodness. This episode in particular wasn’t my favorite because it was focused on Jenny and she has slowly sunk lower and lower on my list of fav characters. She needs more redeemable qualities if she’s going to continue to alienate her family and friends.

Speaking of, where the heck has Eric been hiding? The whole family has been falling apart with Rufus and Lily fighting and he is MIA. I’m glad Rufus and Lily have reconciled (for now) I was getting tired of them squabbling like teenagers. You’re two married adults, grow up!

Dan/Vanessa are actually kind of cute together. I’m not a fan of Vanessa, but I can get on board IF the two of them continue to stay away from the N-JBC

Onto Chuck’s mother. I’m curious to see where it goes, but I hope the DNA test wasn’t rigged. I would rather her screw over Chuck as long as she doesn’t lie about being his mom. Honestly, I don’t think anything could be worse then to say she’s the mom then take it back. If she is the mother, being underhanded and teaming up with Jack would actually be understandable. I would be concerned if she wasn’t manipulative, she is Chuck Bass’s mother after all. lol

And lastly, Serenate I ♥ them. 🙂 And now that they have gotten together and had A LOT of sexytime lol I would really like to see them tackle even more relationship issues. Last night was nice, but I think they could do even better 🙂 I have much more faith in the writer’s this season than the last.

For lack of time (I’m sorry!), I agree to varying extents with all of you. I see validity in the points you”ve all made. We all know I am far from Gossip Girl’s biggest fan. But, as I said above, I did really enjoy 3.13 and 3.14. It is noteworthy that the show has lost a few hundred thousand viewers lately.

It was awfully strange that everyone was at this event in honor of Bart, this event that meant a lot to Lily, an event that she seemed to want her family to attend…and Eric was MIA.
