Gossip Girl Round Table: "The Age of Dissonance"

by at . Comments

As fans venture to our The Age of Dissonance" include memorable quotes, plot holes, characters bidding farewell, the new Blair, and her multiple suitors ...

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

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

DANdy: Nate referring to Julian as an "asshat." Accurate, and great timing.

Mister Meester: After Dan has his epiphany about Rachel and tells Blair, casually, that he banged her in the costume closet. Do what you want with that. Classic Dan.

Gossip Guy: I'm actually going to give this one to the beautiful Nate. I think when he slicks his man bangs away from his eyes, he's able to deliver some killer lines like his cheap shot at Jeremy Piven of Entourage with "should have gone with mercury poisoning."

2. Will the revelation that people hate and are out to get her transform the Blair Waldorf we know and love? What will be her next move?

DANdy: Hopefully bringing back the Nelly Yuki Project. I want to know what that was, and even if she personally didn't take Blair down, that girl needs to get hers.

Mister Meester: If you thought old Blair spoke her mind, the new Blair - minor Gossip Girl spoiler alert - is really not going to hold back. Even at Nate's family reunion. She'll also be locking lips with more than one person next week alone ...

Gossip Guy: I kind of assumed Blair Waldorf always ruled her empire with the idea that everyone hated her... so I would assume this will only make her stronger!

3. Bigger plot hole: Blair being negged from Yale for a relatively minor incident, or anything involving Vanessa?

Mister Meester: Blair's "hazing" of Ms. Carr was fairly insignificant and quite deniable ... are we to believe her acceptance to Yale was rescinded on pure hearsay?

Gossip Guy: Oh come on, why did you have to throw in Vanessa there? I would have loved to have gone with poor Blair's ridiculous plot, but I'm sorry, I have to go with Vanessa here. First off, why is she always around the school when she doesn't even go there? I don't buy the whole crappy-character-making-a-crappy-documentary-about-a-crappy-play.

DANdy: Ooh, tough one. Blair being blackballed by Yale after one disciplinary issue and an anonymous phone call to the admissions office is a huge stretch. But so is Vanessa ... in general. Unlike Dan and Serena or Blair and, well, anyone, V and Nate aren't convincing enough to make me care about (forced) tension between them.

4. Should Carter Baizen stick around for awhile?

Gossip Guy: No way. I think Sebastian Stan has some more men to sleep with and fathers to overthrow on NBC's amazing new Kings to possibly be ruining my Chair.

DANdy: No. Some guys have all the luck. Sebastian Stan already dates Leighton Meester in real life. We don't need him trying to get in her pants on Gossip Girl too.

Mister Meester: Sorry to say, I kinda like this guy. He's a complete d!ck, and even more morally bankrupt than Chuck, but I like the non-stop drama Carter brings to the table. Mr. Baizen and Mr. Bass could engage in some truly epic feuds.

Chuck Bass' mystery girl and arch-nemesis together? WTF!?

5. Who are you happier to be rid of: Rachel or Elle?

Gossip Guy: Definitely Elle. I've given up on a Derena a long time ago. Now anyone who messes with my Chair needs to be off the show. See previous question.

DANdy: Rachel. Worst. Teacher. Ever.

Mister Meester: Both needed to go, but Elle most of all. The Eyes Wide Shut thing never worked for me, while at least the insane Iowan went out with a bang (literally!) by sleeping with Dan when anyone could have walked in, and by going out of her way to trash a high school student on a gossip blog. Didn't see that coming!

BONUS QUESTION: In light of all the recent Gossip Girl spoilers and photos circulating online, we have to ask: Chuck and Blair or Nate and Blair?

Mister Meester: Eventally, probably Chair. But for now, keep us guessing! I love the chase (or the Chace, if you want to take that another way) most of all!

DANdy: Nair. Not because I necessarily want Nate and Blair to live happily ever after, but because them being together will show us what Chuck Bass is really made of. He's gotta fight for her, right? Right. Talk about a love triangle for the ages.

Gossip Guy: I have green beer to drink soon so I'll keep the bonus short. Chair.

1. What was your favorite Gossip Girl quote from the episode?
When Nate turned the play around 2. Will the revelation that people hate and are out to get her transform the Blair Waldorf we know and love? What will be her next move? Blair will be Blair 3. Bigger plot hole: Blair being negged from Yale for a relatively minor incident, or anything involving Vanessa? Yale. 4. Should Carter Baizen stick around for awhile? Yes! 5. Who are you happier to be rid of: Rachel or Elle? Elle only because I like seeing Chuck chase after Blair. With elle there, she distracted him. But Rachel was annoying too. BONUS QUESTION: In light of all the recent Gossip Girl spoilers and photos circulating online, we have to ask: As much as I like Chuck and Blair I think Blair and Nate belong together!

whale sweater, I only read the first book, so my love of Nair is not based of it. I think we never recieved a chance to see how they'd turn out without all that drama. They look adorable together and I think Nate just can't help but be the Knight in Shining Armor (sp?). I think people just need to give them a chance! Does that enlighten you enough? :)

Sweetangie

Chuck talked about Brazil and Sao Paulo
I'm already happy for that
lol

BTW, why is MISTER CHUCK not in the play? Isnt he going to St. Jude's too? :P

seriously, can someone who is a nair fan please explain to me why you like them as a couple and think they belong together? i am honestly curious. they made zero impression on me in the first season and seem totally different so i can't figure out why people would think that, unless it is totally based on the fact that they dated their whole lives or they were blair's idea of a perfect couple. also, i never read the books so maybe people who did feel attached to elements of the couple that have never been a part of the show. but some nair fan, please enlighten me, i am so curious/confused.

1. Best quote? Really? -I've already made a plan, by myself!
Thank you for ending the stupid Elle storyline!!! I couldn't have been happier!
2. That people hate her? As long as they are still jealous I think she will return to her bad self...and one day I hope she realizes what a horrible friend Serena is to her, or maybe serena will change...doubt it
3. Blair-who has perfect grades and attendance kicked out of Yale for one incident is preposterous (did i spell that correctly?) Especially if we are talking about the Yale that would accept someone like Serena....Ridiculous...but they needed something right? As long as she rules NYU then I am fine with it
4. who cares
5. Elle!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Go CHAIR!!!!
Just say no to NAIR!

Miss Dior: "Nair , because Nate cares for Blair so much than Chuck and he was Blair's first true love and the first love never dies! GO NAIR" i'm sorry, i am not interested in trashing nair fans or anything but i just don't uderstand it. it must be based on the books. how can you argue that nate cares for blair so much more than chuck when nate cheated on her with her best friend, continued to persue serena when he was still with blair and was judgemental about blair? what has he ever done in the show to demonstrate that he cares more than chuck? i know chuck went off the rails and hasn't treated blair right in the past but he was also never her boyfriend. i just don't understand the basis for "nates cares more for blair and treats her better" AT ALL.

Aaah I love Nate & Vanessa. But no Nair, nor do I like Chuck & Vanessa. They are totally the opposite in the show. Though as they say: Opposites attract. But not in my book haha. I mean I didn't like Nair in the first season. And you know what I don't think they will get all hot & steamy. I think Blair will come to a revelation of her not wanting to be the way she will be, in the end of the upcoming episode.
And she will consider Nate a friend and the other way around because of his grandfather and his demands. I think.

bonus question: NAIR!

Gossip Girl Season 2 Episode 18 Quotes

In life, as in art, some endings are bittersweet. Especially when it comes to love. Sometimes fate throws two lovers together only to rip them apart. Sometimes the hero finally makes the right choice but the timing is all wrong. And, as they say, timing is everything. Looks like this story might just have a second act. Let's hope it's not a tragedy. XOXO. Gossip Girl.

I hate pretentious asshats who try to steal other people's girlfriends.

Nate
