Gossip Girl Episode Recap, Music, Pictures & More!

at . Comments

Last night's Gossip Girl episode, "Remains of the J," featured a gigantic party (nice!), the introduction of a new character (shady!), a fan of Dan (his half-brother?) and a shocking hookup (OMFG, people!) among many other twists and turns.

Turning 16, Jenny Humphrey just wanted a quiet birthday party. But when Serena used the occasion to reestablish her social prominence, J upped the ante by posting about it on Gossip Girl and sending the whole thing outta control.

Elsewhere, Chuck and Vanessa team up to drive Nate and Blair apart - but things don't work out as planned, and Dan Humphrey receives a letter from a mysterious "fan."

If you missed the episode or just want a refresher some of the details from the UES, you can read all about "Remains of the J" in our official, thorough episode guide.

Also see our gallery, videos, music guide and list of quotes (work in progress). Our Gossip Girl fashion recap and Round Table are still to come, as well, so check back!

the recap on gossip girl sucks..i mean wats a recap when you cant see a story outline.not everybody has the time to follow-up on the episodes


Chuck and V are FUGS so they belong together. They are the ugliest people on the show.


Blair & Nate = boring, boring, boring........
Blair (when pairing with Nate) = silly, out-of-character, not Queen B at all, needy, pathetic......
Chuck & Vanessa = I hate to admit it, but they were HOT together.....


I think the whole C/V thing was Chuck's plan to get Blair with Nate anyway. Like he said in 1x18, if you love something you should set it free. He knew Blair was desperate for nate so he pushed them together on purpose. Then she'll realize herself that there is no spark between her and Nate. Fell sorry for vanessa tho. I guess chuck was just giving her pity sex.


OMFG!!! Chuck and V? not the twist I expected...I now they told us we whould be prepared for a lot more than just a kiss, but I WASN'T PREPARED FOR THAT MUCH OF A HOOK UP! plus...they suck as a couple and as a twist and as whatever!!! LOVE Nate and Blair though...just soooo nice to take her to her favorite spot! So last season!!! :) But seriously, when are they gonna....YOU KNOW! FREACKING FIREWORKS!
Just HATE the C/V part though, besides...it's like watching them kiss in real life and that's a couple I have trouble coping with yet, so EW!!!


wiat but i really liked htis episode, so much better thjan the last few have been, it was acutally interesting and more like last seaon. i like hwere verything seems to be going plus it was all about my girl jenny


I actually liked this episode a lot. I love all the twists and turns, I think that is what keeps the show entertaining. I don't really care that C and V hooked up because it made V a more interesting character. I have to agree with Di that Blair acted like a 5 year old it was so weird. Her acting sucked in the episode and ugh Nate makes her soooo boring. Well besides that I loved the episode, but please people don't hate the show just because your fave couple isn't together.


BRITT couldnt have said it better girl. The writing is inconsistent, erratic. It just plain sucks.


I think this show is going down hill and I used to be a die hard fan. Now I almost want to get rid of it off my DVR it's gotten so lame. I don't even believe the chemistry between Chuck and Blair and could care less who they are with. Get a new writing staff!!


You shouldnt blame Poppy for Serena's indiscretions. its not Poppy's fault that Serena is a hot mess without dan....self-destruction is basically in S's genes !!! Poppy's just along for the ride :~) :~)


Gossip Girl Quotes

And who am I? That's one secret I'll never tell ... You know you love me. XOXO, Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl

[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. She married a country. Forget boys. Keep your eye on the prize, Jenny Humphrey. You can't make people love you, but you can make them fear you. For what it's worth, you're my Queen. I choose you.
