And the streak of good episodes end at 4. We all knew it had to happen sometime right? Especially knowing how bad this show can get at times (see last season). The problem, I think was that all the story lines stood at a standstill for the episode, as new less-interesting story lines emerged.
I really was hoping the whole "Girls on the Steps" thing would be over but looks like it's coming back. Seriously, how insignificant are these girls? I'm not looking forward to the future Jenny story lines. If last season was any indication, we know that Taylor Momsen cannot act. And yes, I know she's only 16. But just have her in the sidelines, she doesn't need to be shoved center stage.
No development with the Scott story line other than him being in contact with Georgina. No development with the Carter & Brie story line which was also disappointing. I really do like Hilary Duff, but her performance just seemed tired here for some reason. The Tyra Banks appearance didn't do this show any favors either.
You'd think the return of Lilly would excite some viewers, but she did nothing for this installment. Overall, back to season 2 mediocrity, hopefully Gossip Girl gets back on track.
