Gossip Girl Episode Recap, Pictures, Music & More

at . Comments

After a two-week buildup, "Carrnal Knowledge" certainly delivered some of the promised twists and turns last night, as well as setting the stage for the episodes to come.

Blair Waldorf waged war against Rachel Carr and used the false rumor of her sleeping with Dan Humphrey to take her down. Chuck Bass, meanwhile, spent the entire episode trying to figure out what - and who - he did the night before.

If you missed it or just want a full recap, it's here in our episode guide! Be sure to check out our gallery, video section, music guide and list of quotes (work in progress).

Our fashion recap and staff Round Table are still to come, too, so check back!

I hate that stupid b*tch rachel!!!!!!!!!!! ugh! I cant wait till blair finds out that something's really happening between her and Dan. And I hope Serena knows about it ASAP so she can rip dan's head with her uber gorgeous legs. hahahah!


Wtf, he was in the episode for like 5 minutes...or what? Give the guy an interesting storyline and by that, I mean get Vanessa out of the picture. CARR.
So a teacher can do such things? Gross. DAN.
Holy crap Dan. Sure thing, the writers made a storyline which made Dan a lot interesting but the latest episode made me disgusted with Dan. I'm annoyed and disappointed for what he did. What happened to Serena as his dream girl? And what happened to "I want to be with you no matter what" blah blah? ...and come on, give in to a teacher after breaking up with your so-called-dream-girl (which was what? five minutes ago)? WTH was that? SERENA.
My sympathy goes to Serena. To writers: Give her a real man! Make her happy! Enough of the drama! DAN and SERENA, ANOTHER TRY?
Not now, please. Give them a break. Let them mature first...especially Dan. I'm a big fan of Dan and Serena but I don't think things are working out for both of them. Who knows if they're relationship will end like Ross and Rachel? Who knows? LILY and RUFUS.
Kill them. Haha!


OMG i know a lot of people didnt like Carr/Dan relationship, but i must say i LOVED it. I think they are so cute together and the end was very sexy...LOVED IT!!! the end was definatly the best part of the episode. so dramatic Miss. Carr + Dan= LOVEEE

Why are there still NO Chair scenes? This is like the 5th or 6th episode that has happen? Chuck and Blair are the stars of the show. We all want them together. Even though I am mad about Chuck and Blair not interacting, this episode proven to be quite humorous. For one thing, Serena wasn’t in it that much. So I am happy about that. Plus Blair was extra manipulative. The speech she gave the girls at school in the beginning was very…inspiring. I still can’t believe all the things that are happening to Chuck. This El woman is a bad influence and I just hope he stop fixating about her. Right now, and pretty much all the time is NOT a good time for Chuck to fall for someone else and for Blair to fall for someone else. These two belong together. Did Chuck stop going to school for good? Blair by far had the best quotes in this episode. One of the funniest scenes I thought was when Blair questioned Dan’s anatomy when he showed up in the girl’s bathroom. Sometimes Blair, I wonder that too. And when Blair and the girls were spying on Dan and Ms. Carr at school, she turned around and said to them something like “anything you can do, I can do better�. The look Blair gave Nelly Yuki in the principal office after she found out she was the one who ratted her out was…oh if looks could kill. Darota going undercover for Blair? How much do you love this woman? I guess it was hard for Harold to see this side of Blair because deep down she will always be his little girl. But the part I am disgusted with the most was of course the last scene between Dan and Ms. Carr (ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww). Apparently she got her job back. I can’t wait to see when she will loose it for again for good because now she truly is having an affair with a student. And I can’t wait to see how much trouble Dan is in. Can he get expelled? Because that would be one of my dreams come true. Again why isn’t next week’s episode new? You can’t just leave a dramaful full episode that leaves us wanting more and not airing the net for another 2 weeks. I am still waiting for Chuck and Blair to get back together. But when will that happen?


Hate Dan/Carr...Sick of the Dan/Carr ending...Dan/Serena always cute...Carr..slutty..


I thought the Dan/Carr ending was actually hot... They finally made Dan look interesting, because he was boring as hell until now. I hate Chuck's storyline, and I hate Elle. I hope she's dead, or at least she doesn't show up again...


i want to burn carr on a stake. haha. and bout the ed jess pictures. yeah. it bummed my whole day.


Gosh... when is annoying Rachel finally leaving the show???


and Dan.

[to Jenny] That's the thing. You need to be cool to be queen. Anne Boleyn thought only with her heart and she got her head chopped off. So her daughter Elizabeth made a vow never to marry a man.
