  • Georgina & Gossip Girl

    The worst part of this episode was sitting through Georgina's mini monologue about how she's not the real GG. What was the point of the big GG reveal if the very next episode you are just going to do a 180.

    Coming in a close second for bad timing was Chuck being knocked back by Blair yet again. I still don't know why at the end of that scene after she had just made her big "when and if" statement she doesn't at least kiss Chuck on the cheek. She's repeatedly told the guy she loves him, followed by we can't be together and now she's skipping off for a year to sort out her mess and he doesn't even get a parting kiss. Shame on Blair!

    Finally Dan has waged a guerrilla war against Chuck who is completely unaware. When is Chuck going to wake up and smell the Humphrey and get his groove back?

    Please writers give Chuck a distraction so he stops musing over Blair long enough to get his spark back.
