This episode tangles breakups and blackmail, making for an action-packed final Thanksgiving episode in the Gossip Girl series. This is a must re-watch because it features Serena's eternal optimism, many poetic lines from Dan, and some plotting by Chuck, Blair, and Nate to take Bart Bass down with an intelligently twisted scheme. It's fun to see Dan and Serena play house this episode, and equally as entertaining to see how Dan's new book chapter throws a wrench into their happiness and impacts their Thanksgiving dinner. However, there's a lack of tension that's missing from the other Gossip Girl Thanksgiving episodes. In fact, the next entry on this list is a perfect example of everything coming to a head during Thanksgiving dinner.
