First of all, this week's Gossip Girl should have aired last Wednesday. A super sentimental Thanksgiving episode after the fact loses a lot of its awww factor, if you know what I mean. Also, no Chuck at all? What gives? All that being said, it was cool to get some flashbacks to what the kids were all like one year earlier. Also, next week's episode looks awesome. Here are my thoughts:
- Before I get to my two cents, check out Bella's Beauty Quiz, Fab's Fashion Quiz and Geek's Tech Quiz on last night's episode. Fun fun.
- I so did not miss the presence of Gossip Girl herself.
- The episode jumped straight into the Blair/Serena drama, eh? Blair was pretty snippy towards Serena, but to be fair B did forgive S pretty quick for sleeping with her boyfriend. Serena really doesn't have any place to be so judgey. Maybe it's just because I have a soft spot for Chuck.
To read the rest of my thoughts about Thanksgiving Gossip Girl-style, just
- Can I just say: Thank god Serena and Dan finally know about their parents' past. Sure, it made their Thanksgiving a little awkward, and Dan will probably have some seriously introspective moments about wanting to be with Serena, but at least it's out in the open.
- Speaking of which, Rufus and Alison made up pretty quickly. What? That's all wrapped up in a matter of minutes. I want to care about their plot line, really I do, I just can't.
- Second best line of the episode: "French fries, and keep 'em coming." Amen, sister.
- Ah, Blair. This episode gave us the best insight into her. Just one year before her life seemed perfect. Even though her kinda jerky boyfriend and best friend were having a flirty water fight upstairs at her family's Thanksgiving...her parents seemed happy and she didn't have a care in the world. And now, she's without Nate, Serena is really only kind of trying to understand, her dad is off in Europe with another man and filing divorce papers, her mom is sort of dishonest...and she maybe has eating issues? Poor B.
- Best line of the episode: "You know what's really weird? There's a garage door in the middle of your room."
- Nate is totally, totally a dolt, but a bumbling defenseless one. I sort of feel like he's a blind puppy — he needs help doing most things. I mean, his mom sucks, but Nate isn't much better.
- The final set of scenes was actually pretty sweet with all the kids and their respective parents bonding over football, french fries, tea. Let's see how long that peacefulness lasts.
Next week, the return of Chuck! And drama! And Blair and Nate making out in their underwear. Yeah, that promo was awesome. What did you think about last night's episode? Do you agree that it was sort of ruined by not being on last week before Thanksgiving? Did you love the flashbacks? Don't you wish Eric would stop dying his hair?
