After 4 episodes of uninteresting story lines, we finally got a satisfying episode of Gossip Girl. We actually got a lot of character development and emotion especially from Chuck, finally he's becoming a three dimensional character after a whole season of being a stereotype.
Nate's absence boded well for this show, considering the Catherine drama is finally over. Jenny is still annoying, but it's great to see how she develops over the course of the show's run. She started the show out as an innocent 14 year old, lets see where she ends up.
One of the reasons season 1 of Gossip Girl was so good was the on going rivalries between the characters, one of which being Serena & Blair. We got those interactions back on tonight's episode. I'm really looking forward to the future dynamics because of this. Overall, first "good" episode of the season.
