Gossip Girl Round Table: "Carrnal Knowledge"

by at . Comments

As fans venture to our Carrnal Knowledge" include memorable quotes, the next step for Chair, Nate and Vanessa, and when we will finally meet the mysterious Andrew ...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

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

DANdy: Blair's motivating speech to her minions: "What we do here today echoes through eternity. Who's with me?" Move over, William Wallace!

Mister Meester: A tie between Blair's claim that she "befriended a family of squirrels" and Nelly Yuki immediately clamoring for a contraband phone to "check the Dow." We'd have pegged Nelly for a NASDAQ investor, but point taken.

Gossip Guy: I totally have to give to my boy Dan for when he called Jenny out on her old makeup with, "I'm glad you're not wearing that raccoon makeup anymore, because you looked like one of the Incredibles." It may be my ego, but I like to think the Gossip Girl writers are reading our site and giving us little inside jokes. We appreciate it.

2. Nate and Vanessa: Kind of cute, totally useless or both?

DANdy: Totally useFUL... if this had been an hour-long infomercial for dental hygiene. The couple spent more time laughing over one-liners less funny than season five Entourage quotes than they did talking.

Mister Meester: A little of both. I don't hate them on principle like some people I know, but these two are trying way too hard to be this perfect, cute, funny happy-go-lucky couple. Tone it down. You're not making anyone green with NV.

Gossip Guy: Totally useless. Personally I thought Nate was being cute with the little joke of sending the mask, but I think when you send it to Vanessa all humor and cuteness instantly convert to uselessness. And from the Gossip Girl spoilers I've read, you're wasting your efforts on this little hussy. Please, Vanessa. Like you could do better than Nate.

3. Who acted more inappropriately: Blair for smearing Dan and Rachel on Gossip Girl, or Rachel for befriending/flirting/acting totally unprofessional with students?

Mister Meester: Obviously Rachel, but Blair's actions do make for an interesting discussion of two points: 1. Is posting anonymous rumors about someone online really slander? 2. If Gossip Girl has become so big that the Constance board is holding meetings about her, how is she (or he) still anonymous? And does the site post just anything?

Gossip Guy: Umm Rachel, Rachel, and Rachel. I'm glad Rufus finally confirmed what I was thinking... even if nothing happened between Dan and Rachel, her actions were way inappropriate. Meeting with students late at night and going on dates? I don't care how cute she is, it's just wrong. Blair, you just did what any Queen B should do, exact revenge.

DANdy: Rachel. Just because you're cute and from out of town doesn't mean you should be flirting with students.

4. Is this it for Derena or will they give it a fourth (fifth? We've lost count) try?

Gossip Guy: I'm sorry, I'm kind of done with Derena at this point. Dan, you finally get back the supposed girl of your dreams and you're acting this way with little miss teacher? I'm sorry, but Rachel may be cute, but Serena is gorgeous. You're seriously this dumb? I'm done supporting Derena and I'm down to just my Chair that I can hope and pray for.

DANdy: I hope it's over. Serena needs to find a man more open to sex tapes.

Mister Meester: I've always been a Derena fan, but this isn't working. If it's not one thing, it's another, and neither are secure enough in what they want or who they are. Perhaps much later they can be together, but as things stand right now it's not happening.

5. What will become of Chuck Bass and his mystery nanny-escort?

Gossip Guy: I think Chuck is going to be fine in all this and even get invited to this uber secret cool society. Now the mystery nanny-escort? I think she's a goner.

DANdy: At the very, very least, a posting on Gossip Girl; if only so the headline can read: Bass and Random Hottie: What the Elle?!?

Mister Meester: Are we supposed to believe Elle was offed because she allowed an outsider into this club? Whether she has been or not, expect Chuck to try to unravel this mystery and possibly get in over his head.

Blair: "With friends like these who needs friends" 2. Nate and Vanessa: Kind of cute, totally useless or both?
At first it was cute, but seriously getting boring now 3. Who acted more inappropriately: Blair for smearing Dan and Rachel on Gossip Girl, or Rachel for befriending/flirting/acting totally unprofessional with students?
I would have to say that Blair's actions were worse. Of course it is a signature Blair moment, so I'm not that surprised that she did it . I don't blame her for doing what she had to do to keep her self at Constance and her spot at Yale. 4. Is this it for Derena or will they give it a fourth (fifth? We've lost count) try?
I think this is officially it between Derena . Those two going back and forth is definitely making me dizzy. 5. What will become of Chuck Bass and his mystery nanny-escort?
I think those corporate clients that she was warning Chuck about snatched her up because they found out about Chuck and their secret may come to light .Or maybe she just decided to disappear for awhile until she thinks Chuck has forgotten about her . Side-bar: A really question that needs to be asked :Should we expect something serious to happen to between Rachel and Dan? Their "forbidden" lust for each other seems to easy , something bad is to become of this.

i agree with barb. the writers are always trying to make characters unhappy. everyonce and a while we could stop all the drama. ps I HATE DAN!! what an idiot

Derena4er

i agree with SerenaVDW . i am REALLY disapointed in DAN. what happened to him llike writing poems about serena and everything. it makes me sick to my stomch that after he broke up with somebody he "loved" he goes and has sex with a teacher. who is sooo not as pretty as blake. i just hate dan now. he needs to come back to is old self. and i agree they need to spark up their relationship a little more like last season where they were actually together for more than 3 EPISODES

Serenavdw

And I agree, we need bubbly Serena back... idk if that means being the IT girl again... but at least find her a good boyfriend or make Dan come back to his senses

Serenavdw

Dan was great in season 1... when he was head over heels in love with Serena.. it felt like true love... now he is always criticizing UE siders... and acting like they are trash and he is oh so better than those "kids"... I'M STARTING TO HATE HIM... and let's admit it: if he is not with Serena, he will no be an important character in the show since he has no connection to the rest of the characters... after Rachel is gone, what will he do? Whine all day long about people who are richer than him?

Serenavdw

I hate Dan now... I love Derena but Dan has become an awful person... he told Serena the rumour was not true... but it was obvious that he had feelings for Rachel... if she hadn't pulled away and said it was wrong, Dan would had kissed her... so insisting it was not true was a blatant lie to Serena... which was confirmed by the fact he "slept" with Rachel after inmediately breaking up with S....

i get very upset with serena right now. she used to be so vivacious and fun but now she's so dull;her and dan just upset me. my sister loves them together. i did as well. last season i cried when they broke up. they were so perfect.this season SO BORING!!! idk serena's always sorry about something and they have trust issues. their fights are really petty and they share a sibling (that's not even the problem, i got over it). i don't know how the writers did it but they took the charm out of serena. to me she's just not the It girl anymore. i just hope that the writers bring her back. blake is such a good actress. she needs to be serena van der woodsen again

Dorota: "Mees Blair. Your martyr act, NO GOOD." Lol LOVE HER. 2. Nate and Vanessa: Kind of cute, totally useless or both?
MEH. 3. Who acted more inappropriately: Blair for smearing Dan and Rachel on Gossip Girl, or Rachel for befriending/flirting/acting totally unprofessional with students?
Rachel. But she and Hobo Humphrey deserve each other anyway... Oh, writers! TIME TO GET SERENA A NEW AND MORE DESERVING MAN PRONTO!!! 4. Is this it for Derena or will they give it a fourth (fifth? We've lost count) try?
I can live without the nauseating Derena "drama" so yes, I hope it will be the end. AND Serena deserves a much kinder, handsomer, richer boyfriend. 5. What will become of Chuck Bass and his mystery nanny-escort?
Don't know don't care. That was the weirdest GG plot line ever. Ironically it made Chuck really BORING.UGH.
I just want Chuck and Blair to hook up ASAP!
