Gossip Girl Round Table: "In the Realm of the Basses"

at . Comments

As fans venture to our In the Realm of the Basses" include memorable quotes, Derena's future, the enigma of Nelly Yuki, and what happened between Jack Bass and Blair ...


1. What was your favorite Gossip Girl quote from the episode?

DANdy: Blair's reaction to the news of Serena and Dan being back together: "A postcard would have been fine." Only B can be catty one minute and sympathetic the next.

Mister Meester: My favorite has to be Chuck's reasoning for smoking hash - "that it provides a smoother high" than marijuana - an assessment which was met by Jack's subtle nod of approval across the table, no less.

Gossip Guy: Fresh off her terrible fashion plot line, Jenny Humphrey is back in high school and back in my heart. She definitely had some of the best quotes this episode, including when she called Dan out on Serena being nine hotness levels above him... and he agreed! Awesome.

2. Can Derena's romance survive the love child twist?

DANdy: No. Some things just aren't meant to be.

Mister Meester: You'd think that it could, since they've gotten past her killing some guy, issues with their parents' past, and the cretin that was Aaron Rose. But we're talking about Derena here. S gets weirded out by pretty much anything (and this is actually weird), while D is prone to stubbornness and indignation. They're toast.

Gossip Guy: You kidding me? Their love can't survive a little murder, their parents being former lovers, or a gust of wind. How are they possibly supposed to survive sharing a half-brother?

3. Any final words for Aaron Rose?

Mister Meester: Only a couple of random thoughts: How much must that plane ride have sucked? And did he run into Serena tangoing her brains out, solo, in Buenos Aires dive bars at any point in the three weeks after? That would've been awkward.

Gossip Guy: Who? Kidding. Good riddance.

DANdy: A rose by any other name... would likely be far less annoying.

4. Who does Nelly Yuki think she is?

Gossip Guy: A radically different character than who she was originally introduced as. Why does the nerd suddenly care so much about the cool girls?

DANdy: Based on the stereotype of Asian nerds the show has played to, I'd assume Nelly thinks she's a bad driving math whiz.

Mister Meester: A surprisingly conniving, manipulative b!tch. Her geekiness was just a front, who knew? Those glasses probably aren't even prescription! P.S. Did anyone else want to at least know what the collegiate party was?


5. What happened - and what will happen - between Blair and Jack?

Gossip Guy: What happened? It sounds even gross just typing it, but I think they did the nasty for sure. What will happen? Jack Bass will learn that there's one person you do not cross in the UES and live to tell about it... Ms. Blair Waldorf.

DANdy: They dared to watch Carson Daly on New Year's Eve. Once they realize that he no longer has a talk show they can bond over, however, Black will fade to... black.

Mister Meester: I would like to think Jack merely discovered Blair's eating disorder on New Year's, but I fear she may have hooked an older Bass, if you know what I mean (sex). As for what will happen next, here's hoping Chair joins forces to rid their lives (and Bass Industries) of this shady character.

Perhaps they have not slept together yet but B made a deal with J that she would if he brought C back. Who knows!!!!!


Nahlee: Its not her. The girl Nate hooked up with at Yale is Krysta Rodriguez and is not the model for Walter. oh, and I will not believe B slept with J, thats just horrible and severely out of character. I mean, she did sleep with C 20 minutes after breaking up with N. But this is different. Blair isn't over C. As much as she appears to be, she loves him and I really will not imagine that she used sex as some sort of incentive to retain Chuck or release against Chuck. Sex is meaningful for this girl. Serious serious props to Leighton and Ed. Their scenes are amazing and honestly, imho make the show.


Courtney then why would Jack be saying "Why don;t you ask Blair about that?"


I get the feeling that when Chuck says "Blair wouldn't touch you", it's not in the context of Jack saying "I slept with Blair" or something along those lines. More like Jack is saying he COULD be with Blair or something, like he might be. Maybe he is threatening to go after Blair to entice Chuck to act in some way that he wants?? Because it's clear Chuck is womanizing - in this promo he's in the limo with girls, and in another promo he's got two chicks in some sort of large office with him. So maybe Jack is saying he will be with Blair if Chuck won't and that's when Chuck makes that comment. And the scene where it shows Chuck running out of some building and Blair running after him clearly happens right before the scene in this promo where Chuck says his father is setting him up to fail from the grave. Him storming out of the building has nothing to do with Jack/Blair.


I think it is going to wind up that Blair slept with Jack. I think she did it so Jack would help her. Jack will prolly try to blackmail her into sleeping with her again, but Blair will refuse. With all the stress Blair's bulemia will come back. Jack will tell Chuck about him and Blair. Chuck will be mad at first and not want to talk to Blair. when Chuck funds out the truth he will go to Blair's to find her throwing up. Then they'll probably say that they will always be there for each other but that its not thier time to have a relationship. Thats prolly what the writers will do. And its gonna suck and Blair and Chuck won't be together till the last episode of the season and it'll be another cliffhanger like last year :(


OK about Blair and Jack i think if they did have sex it was some kind of deal about chuck b/c Blair loves chuck alot and i dont think she would ever sleep with his uncle or anyone else for that matter for no reason


Loved the rooftop scene! Chuck and Blair are made for each other! I don't think she is dumb enough to have done anything with Jack, but based on the promos, it kind of looks that way! I mean, let's not forget she's in high school and he's definently in his 30's!


God I hope that Jack and BLair don't have sex....he is a ceeper! Blair and CHuck belong together and are soooo in love!!!! I think that Jack wants to steal the Bass Co. away from Chuck because of what the commerial says " A son will bury his father" "an uncle will kill his nephew" ????!! Something like that. All I want is for Blair and Chuck to be together and Dan and Serena and not Lily and Rufus. I would love to see a Chuck and Blair spinn-off unlike the Lily and Rufus Spinoff I have been hearing about!


Alot of people say chuck cant talk because he's with like a different girl but the girl isnt blair's aunt or any other relative. I just hope blair didnt sleep with jack but its really leaning towards that and chuck has every reason to be mad if its true.


I am hoping with all my might that nothing happened between Blair and Jack. This will destoy Chuck even more :(
I just want my favortie couple ever to be reunited, but it seems like that will be a long long time away. And I read that there will be a new character joining the show and she will play as Chuck's nanny so something may happen with these two. *tears**tears**tears* Chair Forever!!!
