    Gossip Girl, you are most definitely not "back on track." This episode was pretty mediocre all things considered. The story lines are as contrived as ever, the relationships are getting ridiculous and the only reason anyone keeps watching is because they remember a time when this was a must-watch show.



    Hopefully the finale will prove me wrong, but this season has not been very good overall and we've got this episode to prove it. Serena is one of the most annoying leads on television (right behind Amy from The Secret Life of the American Teenager). Blair has gotten from best thing about the cast to annoying, and Nate continue to be pointless.



    It's hard to sympathize with any of these characters, really. I'm not intrigued by the Gabriel & Serena story line nor am I dying to find out what happens next with Nate & Blair. Gossip Girl is just at a really bad place right now, and I'm worried it wont be able to get back up like it did earlier this season.moreless

    I loved Cyrus's Jewish celebration, It was just so funny. Gabriele and Serena and Dan, all at a dinner table, no one else knows what is going on, hillarious. I also loved the Blair and Nate storyline as did I love the Jenny and Chuck D&M there at the end. Vanessa continued to annoy me in this episode.I thought that it was a bit unbeleivable but at the same time hillarious that Dan's fan happend to be his half brother, also the conclusions that his parents jumped to. Overall, A classic episode that meakes me exited for what's to come.moreless
  • Gossip girl is back on track. Nate gets his balls then promptly drops them. Blair actually makes the right decision at the end and grows.

    As does Chuck, he lets Nate have Blair and apologizes to Jenny. Everyone in his life seems to ask him to leave and he is just accustomed to it. His dad, Serena, and Jenny. Poor guy just wants a family. Nate once again does the girl isn't perfect it's over act, but actually goes back for Blair, which she needs right now. The way Serena used Dan and abused his feelings was awful. I also think Poppy and Gabriel are playing Serena. Using her for something. It was nice that Jenny has a love interest and was ballsy. Great episode.moreless
  • The Waldorf-Rose house is celebrating Seder while things get a little complicated between Blair and Nate. Serena returns from Spain with a big problem at hand and Dan takes a job in a catering service.moreless

    The celebration of Seder was unusual. It was funny how they can't get to finishing the whole celebration with no interruption because of the different issues brewing on the table. Chuck's life is, as always, extraordinary (dealing with issues of himself and stuff). Serena thinks she got married. Dan tried to help with his Yale tuition fee by working in a catering business, which incidentally was covering the Seder celebration at the Waldorf-Rose place. My favorite part though was the Nate-Blair complications. I love LOVE them together! Honestly, I think the chemistry between them is also intense. Blair and Chuck's chemistry before was because of that steam both of them give off. It's like lust chemistry. But with Nate and Blair, I believe it's really the romance. If there's that one guy who can honestly see through Blair, believe in her all the way, and love her truly, I really believe it's Nate. It's time they apply something from the book, at least a portion of it! I'm really looking forward to more romantic and Nate-Blair episodes :) LOVED this episode!moreless
  • Great episode!

    i really love the music on this show; they have a great selection. By the way, the song at the end was Runaway by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. i don't really know about Serena's new obsession Gabriel though. He seams a little off. Blair and Nate are cute together but it's like, been there done that. i think that Blair and Chuck have way more chemistry. Jenny finally has a friend, even though i find him a little strange. . . and its nice that Chuck apologized for attacking J at the kiss on the lips party (first episode). he also put down his drink for once... it's amazing how much he drinks. it's like every other scene he has a alcoholic drink of some sort. any ways... it was a good episode. go watch it on itunes or something.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • In this and previous episode it is winter in New York, so it is also winter in Spain. That means Serena coudn't swim and get tan because it's too cold for something like that.

      Barcelona is located on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea which means Serena couldn't swim in the ocean.

    • "Costa del Sol" has nothing to do with Barcelona. Barcelona is in "Costa Brava" as they said in the previous episode.
