  • Serena's secret is revealed.

    Although the acting on the show is sub-par, this was a fairly decent episode of Gossip Girl. Instead of behavior passed off as scandalous, but rather better described as lame and ingenuine, we had a powerful, emotional storyline. While Blake Lively is not the best actress in the world, she was able to get the viewer interested in her story and feeling for her. Leighton Meester was great in her role, coming down to Earth from her "Queen Bee" status to help her friend out. The whole apologizing to the family deal was not needed though, and anything involving Rufus is usually brutal crap. If Gossip Girl would just try more to be a classical teen drama than an exaggerated look at female behavior more people might watch the program.
