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.

1. What was your favorite Gossip Girl quote from the episode? I have three actually. #1 is Blair's comment: "I made friends with a family of squirrels, and had lots of time to think." #2 is the conversation in the bathroom:
Hazel: Thank God.
Blair: No, thank Blair. (Turns to Dorota) Thanks Dorota.
Oh by the way, Dorota was rocking those sunglasses when she went to the girls' bathroom. She looked like a secret agent spy or something. #3 is Dan's comment to Jenny: "I'm glad you're not wearing that raccoon makeup anymore, because you looked like one of the Incredibles." 2. Nate and Vanessa: Kind of cute, totally useless or both? Kind of both actually. They're affectionate to each other and want to make the relationship work. But then they don't do anything really this season. Last season, Nate was (supposedly) in love with Serena and Vanessa was (supposedly) in love with Dan. This season they're boring. 3. Who acted more inappropriately: Blair for smearing Dan and Rachel on Gossip Girl, or Rachel for befriending/flirting/acting totally unprofessional with students? omg, definitly Rachel. You first off don't befriend students. They'll expect you never to give them a bad grade or get mad at them. Flirting? Dan's what 17? And she absolutely acted totally unprofessional. And she slept with him the night she got fired? Don't like her. one. bit. 4. Is this it for Derena or will they give it a fourth (fifth? We've lost count) try? As much as I want Dan and Serena to be together, this is it. Serena doesn't need to put up with Dan anymore. He wants her, then he doesn't, then he wants her...what is it? 5. What will become of Chuck Bass and his mystery nanny-escort? This part of the episode (to me) was pointless. Since Chair is apart, Blair and Chuck have to have something to do other than each other. Since Blair was involved with Rachel, where does that leave Chuck? Exactly. I really don't care what becomes of them or her.

1. favorite quote: I have one! a favorite TO HATE quote: 'She was the most beautiful woman I've ever seen' The hell, Chuck?! 2.NV, cute, useless or both. both. they are a cute couple. i will give them that, but as characters, they are totally dispensable. we can have a full episode without the two of them and we'll still have a working story line. this is really sad because i LOVE nate. nevermind vanessa, but really, THEY NEED A PLOT! they need something to happen between them or the show's just got to get so boring from here on out! 3. who's the bitch? NOT Blair. come on, though she said it, the hit on GG wasn't that much of a lie anyway.. since it turned out to be true. they were all over each other. Man! that teacher really needs some "spanking" and fast.. oh, when will the writers give justice? 4. derena i just dont know. they've been at it so many times. they know what they're doing wrong and yet still cant make it work. what does that say about them? one thing:IT'S JUST NOT GOING TO WORK! (too bad, because it was sweet the first time) 5.chuck-nanny i think Chuck will be curiously looking for answers, STILL! but will eventually just get bored. but i dont think he's gonna get in on with blair. i dont even think he's gonna say the three words this season. and maybe that's for the best. if the writers rush THAT scene, that will forever ruin everything. rant: what's with the 5 week break? you give us a so-so (bordering on crappy and disappointing) episode and you expect us to wait for 5 weeks???

Dan's "raccoon makeup" comment to Jenny. 2. Nate and Vanessa: Kind of cute, totally useless or both?
Let's imagine they weren't in that episode at all. Their absence wouldn't affect the other characters whatsoever and didn't really add much to the episode as a whole. Last I checked, I thought Vanessa was still angry at Chuck for the whole speakeasy-buyout thing. Now she is all smiles and tagging along on what should have been a Nate and Chuck scene at the most. Dang, they're boring. Chuck pretty much ignored her the whole time, and the writers should have done the same for that episode. 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. For not shutting down Dan and instead playing along with all of his puppy-love actions, then putting on their "verbally bash the rich kids" hats. Mood-lit dinner and coffee, gushing sweetly with students, then turning around and calling the principal on another student? Ridiculous. Blair just sent a text message, big woop. Dan needs to be spayed, his principles have long since been eclipsed by his libido. 4. Is this it for Derena or will they give it a fourth (fifth? We've lost count) try?
If Dan got his self together, they'll try again. Serena won't quit on him, I bet. 5. What will become of Chuck Bass and his mystery nanny-escort?
I almost don't care. A foggy memory of a lady with a mask and some curtains? Mystery could make things interesting, but not enough to hook Chuck like that. What happened to all that great stuff between him and Blair? Psst, Chuck, it was dark, you had fun. Let's leave it at that. snore.

When did Dan become such an ass??? Stroking a teacher's face and looking lovingly into her eyes, and THEN to not even blink when he said there was nothing going on. BIG No-No! Whatever happened to the guy that didn't date anyone, waiting and waiting for Serena to come back to him. Unpleasant plotline. I don't like it. Although, I'm beginning to think Nate and Serena wouldn't be too bad together. I had hopes the beginning of the series.
