Tonight's episode was terribly scandalous and it is exactly what the show needed right now. Sure, there were some rough spots in the beginning and a lot of the dialogue and conversation was really cheesy, but the lies and deceit were perfect. All the good intentions going wrong and then the continued "will they or won't they" drama with Chuck and Blair.
GG is good escapist fun, and it does not stray from what it is all about. That's why it is worth watching despite the sinking ratings.
