What can I say? Gossip Girl was AWESOME tonight! One of the best episodes in the last several weeks. So many great things to talk about here! 🙂
First off, I loved that Blair’s mother, Eleanor (Margaret Colin) and Cyrus (Wallace Shawn) were featured. I love those two actors, they are just so funny. The Passover dinner scenes were fantastic!
Next up, the resolution to the Jenny (Taylor Momsen) and Chuck (Ed Westwick) story. It’s about time we got some closure to the story that started between them all the way in the very first episode of season 1. The original story came straight out of the pages of the Gossip Girl books and I loved it. I really loved the resolution tonight, and wonder where it’s going to go. Will Chuck and Jenny become friends?
Blair (Leighton Meester) and Nate (Chace Crawford)…wow, what a power couple they are. Don’t get me wrong, I’m definitely a Chuck and Blair fan, but still, Blair and Nate DO have some magic between them. Such a cute couple, and the scenes between them were great. Even better was the very first scene between Blair and Nate’s grandfather! When he was manipulating her into convincing Nate to go to Yale and she turned the tables on him to ensure that not only would he get her into Yale as well, but also put her in his other grandson’s wedding party. Too bad he turned the tables on her in the end, but she still came out on top. That’s my Blair! 🙂
So, Serena (Blake Lively) got married to Gabriel (Armie Hammer) in Spain, huh? And it looks like Poppy (Tamara Feldman) and Gabriel are setting her up. Very interesting. Even more interesting is the return of Michelle Trachtenberg’s Georgina Sparks next week. Georgina couldn’t have come back at a better time. Maybe she’ll be the one to put Poppy and Gabriel in their places. I hear that Georgina and Blair are going to really lock horns this time around.
I was sad that Dorota (Zuzanna Szadkowski) didn’t appear tonight, as she is such a scene stealer. But I hear that Dorota will be hanging around for a long time. That’s very good news!
I love any scene that features Lily (Kelly Rutherford) and Rufus (Matthew Settle). Those two are just so awesome and have such great chemistry. I also love how they’re covering up Kelly Rutherford’s pregnancy on the show. They’re coming up with some very creative ways to hide that tummy. 🙂
Also missing in action tonight was Vannesa (Jessica Szohr). I haven’ t been a huge fan of her character on the show, but in the books I loved her. I’m hoping that Vanessa will get a good storyline soon. In the books, Vanessa and Dan (Penn Badgley) are the couple to root for, but on the show they’re really pushing us to want Serena with Dan. I’m starting to feel that Serena and Dan have run their course on the show. They’ve gotten together and broken up so many times that I can’t keep count. So, maybe it’s time to see how Vanessa and Dan would work on TV.
I can’t wait to see what next week will bring us, especially with Georgina making a big return. It looks like Georgina found religion and wants to save Chuck! And it looks like Blair catches Poppy and Gabriel making out behind Serena’s back. Lots of good stuff, let the games begin!
