Gossip Girl Round Table: "Remains of the J"

at . Comments

As fans gather in our Remains of the J" include memorable quotes, Jenny's birthday party, Nate and Blair's spark, Vanessa and Chuck, and Dan's mysterious half-brother ...


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

DANdy: Vanessa, displaying her adorable innocence to Chuck: "I came to you because I wanted to do something besides feel sorry for myself, but all it's been has been sleazy platitudes and you staring at my boobs."

Gossip Guy: As much as the idea of anyone sleeping with Vanessa sickens me, I love when Vanessa is disgusted by Chuck's idea to leak a sex tape and his response is "we don't have to leak the tape if you don't want to."

Mister Meester: Tie between V's "it's just physical" (snap, Nate!) and Dorota's theory on Nate running late: "Maybe girl from Brooklyn cry ... Mr. Nate nice boy, he wipe tears, he touch her hair, she touch his ... not that this ever happen to me." LOL.

2. Favorite failed Kelly Rutherford pregnancy-concealing device: flowy orange top, sitting awkwardly with knees on sofa, or standing far away with huge coat in the lobby?

DANdy: What about hiding behind a pot of chili? Rutherford is just lucky Rufus' specialty involves the only cookware larger than her baby bump.

Mister Meester: The other stuff was subtle enough, but the full-on (bright orange no less) maternity top Lily wore at breakfast? Way to call attention to the pregnancy.

Gossip Guy: Definitely her awkwardly sitting on the sofa. The producers either need to get better at this, or take a note from How I Met Your Mother where they even make on-screen jokes about Alyson Hannigan's baby bump via a hot dog eating contest.

3. Who was most at fault for the party debacle, Serena or Jenny?

Mister Meester: Definitely Serena. After all Jenny's been through, the fact that she wanted a low-key affair at home should have been embraced, not ignored. Especially not just to prove herself to that stuck up b!tch Poppy. Nice hair, snob.

DANdy: By "party debacle," I assume you mean the fact that Serena wore a dress that scarcely showed off her cleavage. She has no one to blame but herself for that faux pas.

Gossip Guy: Oh, please, definitely Serena. I would have turned that lame soiree into a kegger if Jenny didn't.

4. Do Nate and Blair have a spark?

Gossip Guy: Eww no. Why the did Nate just lay there so awkwardly when Blair tried to kiss him. Might we want to set up Nate with Eric at this rate? If you want to see spark, just re-watch any episode with Chair!!

DANdy: No. But don't blame yourself, B. Nate only has chemistry with his hair stylist.

Mister Meester: Nate isn't exactly Mr. Fireworks, as evidenced by his blink-and-you-miss-it visit to Blair's after dumping Vanessa, and when he passed on the chance to hit it with her in Chuck's bed, but the scene at the end was pretty romantic. Maybe a best friend and a good guy is just what B needs in a man. At least for a couple of days.

An Infamous Kiss
Chuck and ...

Nair? Vuck? The Gossip Girl world has been turned upside down.

5. Will Chuck and Vanessa hook up again?

Mister Meester: I'm actually intrigued by this for two reasons: 1. Vanessa allying with Chuck Bass in their jealousy game was the most interesting thing she's ever done, and 2. His heart may belong to Blair, but does he also like Vanessa a little? That look at the end didn't exactly scream "get out, useless home-schooled Brooklyn documentary girl." I'm interested to see where C and V go from here.

Gossip Guy: Excuse me, I had to just swallow the vomit that almost came up.

DANdy: Again?!? There's a good chance they haven't stopped hooking up yet!

BONUS QUESTION: How did Scott find Dan, and what is he after?

DANdy: He read Dan's piece in The New Yorker and he's after advice from the author. Am I the only one that watched this episode?

Mister Meester: I think whomever wrote this question is trying to ask is whether Scott (if that's his real name) actually "knows," as his parents say, about his relationship to Dan, or whether he's just a fan. You have to think he figured it out and is after Lily's money or something. After all, how good a writer could Dan be?

Gossip Guy: Well obviously Scott got his mother's pretentious genes and read The New Yorker. Now what is he after? I'm going to assume it's not the Humphrey fortune.

now with all of the haters, i find it interesting now, the CV thing, why don't we give them a chance, lol. as for me, i'm ok with NB / NAIR thing. i'm not against of it. but to the haters there's a lot of spoilers telling that chuck and blair would be an item at the season ender episode, so what's the fuss?


Ok Nair fans need to get their heads out of their butts. How can Nair be sweet & cute with the way both acted the entire freaking episode?! Blair was whiney & annoying while Nate was just..Nate. This is why Nair is the worst couple to come out of Gossip Girl. People seem to forget the line that Nate uttered to Vanessa.."congrats you succeeded in becoming like Blair.."-yeah reality check..that's supposed to be an insult. Here's the best part...Nate then goes to Blair & wants to be with her. They also fail to produce sparks so all they got going is their boring history. I'm so glad I don't ship this couple. God awful as usual. CV I have no problem with because its all revenge sex..Chair belongs together in the end. Lily's attempt to cover her pregnancy was laughable by the way.


Blair and Nate just don't belong together..there's no chemistry there. But vuck?? It's so awful that I have no words to describe it and the worst part is chuck seemed to kindda care for her at the end.. eww.


i will stop watchin if they screw up chair by the end of the season finale, and oh well the show will just get cancelled too many chair fans out there like me....yuckkkkkkk chuck and vanessa "cringe"....


Favorite Quote? When Blair and Dorota were walking in the park and Blair says, "That's true. The ducks do make me happy. Give me my loaf." I laughed so hard!!


I love chuck and blair togethor but i thought chuck and vanesse was something different and creative. Although i love chuck and blair they need to get togethor asap.


oh gosh guys don't be close minded about the v and c situation it's pretty clear that wuz just as v said "physicall" JUST SEX.. i mean they are humans they felt it !(Lol) but that doesn't mean they are gonna have some kind of relationship...!GIVE THE WRITERS A BREAK..! beacuse let's face it ... the most interesting thing between blair and chuck was the fact that they were chasing each other!! i mean.. this was the best episode in the last 3 weeks.! so instead of criticise the show keep wacthing it!


1. My favourite quote would definitely have to be Blair trying to pass a car horn off as Dorota sneezing. "DOROTA, stop using your hanker chief at the table! It's disgusting.. "!
2. The orange top was a tad obvious.
3. Though I adore Serena, this party was entirely her fault. It was Jenny's birthday, and she deserved to spend it the way she wanted to!
4.Uh, no. Never have, never will!
5. Excuse me while I vomit a bit in my mouth!


LOVE CV. They have such chemistry and are hotter than Chair, which has gotten dull, BORING and lacking in sparks ever since the writers decided to drag it out to death. I used to love Chair but lately, they are nothing but a snoozefest. Chanessa is hotter to me coz I love how Chuck and V are total opposites (and yet, similar when they want revenge). I know they won't last coz Josh and Stephanie have said Chair is endgame but for now, I love Chanessa. On the other hand, Nair is even more boring than Chair has become. Blair has also been rather annoying in the past two episodes. Not as annoying as Jenny has always been but still, I am loving her a lot less. After visiting some other forums, I am glad to see that I am not alone in loving Chanessa! Lots of others are into this new ship too. =) Go Team Chanessa!!


I loved CV they're sooo OMFG you know...hot! besides I love Vanessa so whoever vanessa is with I wouldn't care but I'm still a huge fan of NV
