    I have a lot feelings about this episode. Let me start by saying that I'm disappointed that Nate upon hearing of "what happened" to Serena chooses to write her off. He spent most of the episode worrying that his parents are going to divorce. He's grown up, he shouldn't be worried about that anymore. I'm worried that this ruins any chances he might have of being with Serena cause I like them. Let's hope something happens. And when Vanessa's part in what happened to Serena was revealed she opted to get out of town. I hope it's not the end of her. But Jenny appears to be on the road to redemption because she owned up to what she did--helped Juliet get Serena.And unlike before when she got run out of town, she opted to hit the road on her own. But fear not, Taylor Momsen who plays Jenny has a long contract which means she'll be back. I hope Jessica Szhor who plays Vanessa has one too. And Chuck and Blair; last week Blair told him like Ross and Rachel from FRIENDS, they need to take a break. And surprisingly Chuck was not the one who said they should reconsider that, if anything he said she was right. And we're still in the dark about what happened between Juliet's family and Serena. And from what I hear Katie Cassidy who plays Juliet only has one episode left. Even her brother who was her partner in all this, is appalled by her when according to him she crossed the line. According to her she lost everything, her cousin, Colin who had been supporting her has decided to cut her off, and she got booted from Columbia, she felt Serena needed a little more pain. But we learn that she and Lily know each other and Lily has been paying her to keep one of Serena's secrets. Can't wait for what's next.moreless
  • Gaslit.

    We start the episode with everyone just wondering where the hell is Serena and everybody is already judging her based on the old party girl Serena used to be. Turns out she is passed out in a hotel room in Queens and doesn't really know how she got there or what she did once there.

    I don't really Serena, but then again she doesn't deserve to be judged right away by everyone she loves, specially Eric and Lily. Blair and Chuck still on that 'let's try to be friends first' ordeal. Turns out that it doesn't sit well with him to just be Blair's wing man. Sad ending in this episode for them, kind of.

    Nate, give it a rest already! Is there anyone more naive than him in the HISTORY of television!? Even Scully wasn't like that on the first X Files season, for God's sake!

    Enough already with trying to pinpoint Jenny as the master of everything bad that happens on the Upper East Side. Vanessa was so mean to her and was gone late. As for Juliette, what's hers is already being planned by Blair and believe it or not, Dan! C'mon Dan, this is your big chance to be really dangerous. LOLmoreless
  • Come Together, Right Now.

    This episode was a bit odd and seemed out of sorts to me. First of all, what is even the point of Rufus anymore? He's soo boring and contributes very little except for the occasional "What were you thinking Jenny?", or the aww Dan, you're your father's son look. All he ever does is give empty speeches to his children or supports his wife in whatever she does. What's left of this character is his son making Lily realise she actually f*@ked up her kid. I'd like to see a plotline revolve around Rufus for once, like him doing a gig or something and getting totally smashed and having to deal with the repercussions, he's so mellow now.

    There were also waaaay too many cliched back-and-forths between the characters (more than usual, anyway). Good points: Does this mean Juliette's gone now? I hope at least for a few episodes while the long-awaited Blair/Dan crime team come into play. It's almost like all of this was set up so that Blair ONLY had Dan left to choose from. Hopefully it'll be great. Also, although I didn't actually mind Jenny as a character, I'm kinda glad she's gone, she was also suffering from the re-used plotlines that her father is so accustomed to. Does this mean that Vanessa is also out of the picture for a while?

    All of these characters going missing leaves alot of room for the Blair/Dan crimefighting team! Let's hope Chuck and Serena don't get too jealous, though it'd be hilarious to spring them falling asleep on the couch together or something!moreless
