Gossip Girl Round Table: "There Might Be Blood"

at . Comments

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?

3. Is Dan headed down a dangerous path?

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.

I liked the episode though I think they are getting a bit unbelievably over-the-top. I love how everyone is hating Aaron for being a player though we all love Chuck (womanizer) and Nate (who has made out with basically all the female cast by now). I am interested to know what happens Chuck vs. Dan :).


Ummmm. Mixed thoughts. Personally, I don't like Jenny. She gets on my nerves so much. Ughh. I loveeee Dan. I also like Blair. I like Chuck too. I used to like Chuck and Blair together, but it needs change, and not like 5 episode change. I really wish that Dan and Blair could become good friends, maybe even more, as time goes on. Deff, not right away. I don't know, what do you guys think.


Lily told Rufus she was saving him from a terrible mistake. What she meant was: I'm saving you from making the terrible mistake I nearly made.
When Emma asked Blair whether her first time was with someome she loved, Blair said yes, which was somewhat less than the truth. How would Serena have answered that question? Probably with a heartfelt "I wish".


I love Chair so much. and i'm glad they had their tidbits because of how last episode ended. but they do need some time before they get together. be patient chair fans, it's all about development.


i quite liked the episode
and tbh even tho that aaron guy may be a player what girl doesnt fall for a player? if dan and serena stayed together the story lines would just repeat themselves
like ryan and marissa
a break always makes you happier when they get back together!
and nate and jenny actually happened in the book so like you cant be so shocked it happened. Vanessa really pees me off, she just is so serious omgosh blair and chuck targeted me blah blah, nobody cares we love blair too much with chuck and blair i really couldnt imagine them as a romantic couple, i love them but they like the whole chase and sexual torment bit, and tbh i love watching it rufus is annoying me, what happened to the cool dad?


Part of me liked tonights episode and part of me didn't. The plot wasn't that great but I liked Chuck and Blair teaming up. I liked when he said to Blair, "for you anytime." when she said thank you for him getting gossip girl to post the fake rumor. as far as I'm concerned Aaron is a player and personally I wouldn't trust him and neither should Serena! watching nate and jenny to to me is a little disturbing. I know I know considering the age difference on the show it's really not a big deal but in real life they're almost seven years apart! I didn't like Jenny's designs nor do I like her new look. Who runs away with that much make up on?


i cant believe vanessa still likes nate! Where did jenny go?


aaron was yuck! when is he leaving the show and making room for derena to get back together...? please tell me soon!


I just thought you should know - but you probably already know this - that Josh Schwartz used "lacrosse-stitutes" in season 3 of the O.C. It was the episode where Marissa visits Kaitlin at her school and Kaitlin describes the girls at her schools as "lacrosse-stitutes."


Blair to Serena - 'leave the scheming to the experts'
Damn right Blair - only you and Chuck have the right to mess with other people Nate is an idiot - seriously the dude just sucks at life in general.
