Gossip Girl Round Table: "There Might Be Blood"
As fans sound off in our There Might Be Blood" include all things Nate, as well as the arrival of Aaron Rose, and what the future holds for Blair and Chuck ...
1. What was your favorite Gossip Girl quote from the episode?
DANdy: Blair referred to Muffy - whose net is always open to players with sticks, if you know what I mean! - as a "lacrosse-titute." That's hilarious.
Mister Meester: It's gotta go to Gossip Girl herself for the headline, "Muffy's Muff Gets Stuffed." That is so wrong, but so great. Side note: How great is it that 1. Chuck has "connections" with Gossip Girl and 2. the blog looks like the real CW site?
Gossip Guy: Definitely Chuck when he uses a pun of his own name, "look like you just hooked yourself a Bass." It's one thing when other characters do it, but now Chuck doing it himself? Unreal. What a show!
2. Do you trust Aaron?
DANdy: I don't trust Serena to know how hot she is. A shady artist that won't come clean about the girls kissing him and answering his phone? You can do better, S.
Mister Meester: Basically, various women answer the dude's phone and show up wherever he happens to be. Maybe they're just friends - if he had something to hide, wouldn't he be a little more careful? No, he's probably just that shady.
Gossip Guy: I trust him as much as I like him. And that's not at all. How the hell did he dodge the question about that girl answering his phone? And how do I learn that trick?
Mister Meester: Without question. But perhaps he'll actually man up in the process.
Gossip Guy: No, it's the path where he finally finds his balls. When you get there and finally get into Yale, will you please give Serena a call? I do not approve of this Aaron skeeving his way in to your woman's pants.
DANdy: Look, Dan couldn't even go a movie with Nate because he was so wound up over his Yale recommendation. The guy has got to learn how to chill. If that involves getting edgier, so be it.
4. Rufus called the police on Jenny. Really?!?
Gossip Guy: You got me. You can check my old round tables from Season One, I was the biggest Rufus supporter. Now, I really don't know what to do with him. Something about him changed since he went on tour and gave up Lily. He's a shell of the awesomeness he once was before. He was once the dad I called cooler than Sandy Cohen. Now he's less cool than Danny Tanner (or even nerdier dad if you can think of one!).
DANdy: I rolled my eyes at that scene. Rufus approved of a career in fashion for Jenny. Doesn't he know that centers around the occasional guerilla fashion show?
Mister Meester: Classic reactionary move. Enraged and desperate, Rufus thinks, "That'll teach her a lesson (even though it contradicts my previous support and is an extreme measure considering the lack of harm done)!" Thank goodness for Lily.
5. Do you prefer Chuck and Blair playing mind games with one another - or teaming up against other people?
Gossip Guy: I think Chuck really stepped it up and proved he wouldn't do anything to ever really hurt Blair. I mean the guy wouldn't desecrate the sanctity of the backseat of his limo he once shared with Blair. Oh how I heart Chair.
DANdy: The beauty of Chuck vs. Blair is that it really is Chuck AND Blair. These two have turned sexual tension into a tango that not even Brooke Burke could master.
Mister Meester: I missed the back-and-forth we've been accustomed to, but this episode did have some sweet moments - Blair admitting (albeit to Emma) that she does love Chuck, and his comment about the back of the limo being sacred. Hey, it's Chuck Bass. You gotta take what you can get.
