watching this week with 941! i love that Alex would rather watch GG than the playoff game =) but ugh id forgotten about smarmy gabriel. and sad little optimistic rufus =( theyd better fix this, and fast.
chuck taking a cab?!?? How bourgeois! fantastic. and S acknowledging the error of her ways? thank god.
“the lord can not enter a body sullied by alcohol.” totally obvi that Chuck was going to run with that one
oooh and lily is pouring on the love to S. she thinks her daughter has made a big turnaround. unfortunately….
Nate is giving B ultimatums… this isn’t going to end well.
Rufus is a moron. but i love that he wants Eric’s permission. ugh and josh schwartz is totally trying to torture us with this whole proposal thing? he’s trying to build things up for R so much, and god i dont know if i can bear to see him torn down!
scabies? love it. but what is blair wearing. and why does gayface keep leering? too much scheming! and is poppy really not in on this? i dont buy it.
“you did call the police, didnt you?” I love that chuck just asked that. finally someone with some sense. S is a moron…”just because he took off with all the money doesnt mean the feelings weren’t real” OH my god, She really is.
Georgina appearing on blair’s request for an act of god? this might be my most favorite scene ever.
wait a second, gabriel is playing dumb? tell me serena isnt buying this? WAIT! she told him she was pregnant! maybe she’s smarter than i thought. and gabriel just blamed it on poppy??
i just made a sound that boyalex described as sounding like someone in the middle of sex. (something akin to aughghghhg)… ” but it’s not sex, it’s gossip girl.” oh wait, i just made it again. sorry, alex.
dan told lily!!! what is his fucking problem?? it is NOT his place. way to fuck up things for your dad. again.
a fauxcialite! this madoff bullshit is… bullshit. and what kind of investors give money after one day? if S buys eyebrow dude’s sincerity, im going to shoot myself in the foot.
G is begging for B’s forgiveness. what the hell happened that night?? can someone fill in the holes for me??
“i will not perjure myself in front of the lord” and an REM reference? im not sure i think it’s that funny, but im loving these group scenes. mostly bc they juxtapose B/S and C/N. and it’s pretty clear who’s on top here. oh, and G is actually pretty believable as a god-loving hs student. (or maybe im still pretending she’s dawnie)
it’s actually nice to see Lily being professional. and momlike. “this goes far beyond bad taste in boyfriends”
“i know, i feel terrible” – oh, right, like your guilt will pay for dan’s education.
“this is an adult scandal, and the adult thing t do is for me to pay everyone back and you to do nothing” – Wow.
oh!!! eric is back to a brunette!! and he’s adorable!!
jesus loves me as i am. Oh, this is fantastic. B is trying to push G over the edge. love it.
“i gave up my old ways when i let jesus take the wheel” YES.
“if you cut revenge out of the bible, there’s not even enough left to make a pamphlet” B is brilliant.
“she’s so evil, she makes the old Georgina look like the new Georgina”
ugh, dan needs to stop answering the phone, and real professionals would NEVER tell some random kid that his father’s dividends were in the mail. Lily is trying to make this right, and Dan is obvi going to f it up majorly. HATE HIM.
holy shit, i love G.
lauren: Go away dan! [and we all agree.]
ugh this is awful. rufus, poor rufus. this sucks. please please please let him ask lily to marry him this episode.
wow. gayface / chuck confrontation!
OMG. jenny going on about edward and bella. LOVE it. best scene in the entire episode.
until this ridiculousness. apparently lily is incapable of giving her children orders they actually follow. S is a self-righteous dumbass. no one hides anything well anymore. oh my god! and what if G swindles Poppy?? that might be awesome!!
G making Sex and the City references. ooh she’s good at playing naive.
OH is chuck going to tell B how he feels. oh my god. please chuck!! “then look down deep into the soul you have and tell me if it’s real…” !!!! WHAATATATA WHYYYY? “because i love her and i want her to happy” FUCK. i just teared up.
“they can download kirk cameron movies!” oh my god, can be poppy be this dumb???
What JUST happened?? NO fucking way. no no no no.
“i will never forgive you for what you’ve done, and neither will jesus” ooh, harsh b.
ugh and there go lily and rufus. dammit. “you sound exactly like your mother.” crap this is relationship is effed. cant we have a smidgen of stability here, joshie??
THANK you! finally blair realizes that just because she’s not with Chuck, it doesnt mean she should be with Nate. or wait, maybe she doesnt.
omg! G’s back! take poppy down! but oh good lord, this episode is going to end like this, isnt it? nobody is happy! and it’s ALL your fault, Dan.
but WAIT!! OH MY GOD. next week: what a fantastic segue!! “i had a mug shot taken!! do you know how that feels??” um, yes!! VALLEY GIRLS!!!! and it looks freaking awesome!!! im not sure how i feel about Brittany Snow’s voice, or the foppish-haired dude who i fear might be rufus (please, build some suspense with that one), but good lord, im gonna watch it anyway and im going to like it.
in conclusion, i loved: G spouting gospel. the group scenes – id forgotten how fun they are to watch. eric looking adorable.
to reiterate, i hated: Dan. so, so much. this awful ponzi scheme storyline. S, forever. Rufus still NOT proposing. chuck letting Blair go because he loves her and wants to see her happy. WHAT THE F? what about making me happy? (and yes, i did tear up a little in that scene. god, theyre epic. it’s pacey and joey all over again, complete with gayface as dawson). ps. where was V tonight?
Lauren, post GG: i feel so emotionally drained.
– oh, i concur. =/ next monday cant come soon enough!
