One of the only things I have to say about this episode is at least it was better than the last episode. I really don't like where Gossip Girl is heading. Last season, this show was watchable and it was actually entertaining, but this season just started okay, but now it's not looking good at all.
I understand that this episode was very eventful (which is why so many people liked it) but it's just not the same. The only likable character in the cast is Blair, and everyone else either falls shorts or is incredibly annoying.
Take Serena, Rufus, Lilly, Nate, and Jenny for example. Serena was also a watchable character last season, but she's just been so annoying and I think her relationship with Dan was the only thing holding her entire mess of a character in to place. Her relationship with Aaron is intolerable, and just plain annoying. Overall, fair episode at best, just didn't care for it.
