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 are we to believe her acceptance to Yale was rescinded on pure hearsay?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? BLAIR wins this one ! "I want Dan Humphrey's head on a platter!" 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? I think that Blair is going to change quite a bit. She's going to be doing CRAZY things and not care how she acts because her reputation and future is already ruined. But we all know she's going to go back to normal, and I'm hoping that it'll be Chuck who saves her from self-destructing by saying "I love you," 3. Bigger plot hole: Blair being negged from Yale for a relatively minor incident, or anything involving Vanessa? Vanessa . . . BLEGH . . . But yeah, Vanessa isn't getting on my nerves as much as before. And plus, she'll be helping Chuck break up Nair (no offnese Nair fans, but I'm strictly Chair), so YAY! Anyways, this was totally Ms. Carr's fault. I hope she gets run over by a car on her way back to Iowa. 4. Should Carter Baizen stick around for awhile? YES! This is the time for Chuck to PROVE HIMSELF! 5. Who are you happier to be rid of: Rachel or Elle? Elle. I hated Rachel, but NO ONE MESSES MITH CHAIR. 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? I'm looking forward to Nair so that Chuck can prove himself. I am 100% CHAIR, so Chuck had better step it up.

1. What was your favorite Gossip Girl quote from the episode? Dan's do what you want with it was hilarious. Oooh and this isn't a funny line, but when Nate says "It's heartbreaking" It's so sexy. 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? Her spin-out-of-control-breakdown that we are soon to see next week I would guess. 3. Bigger plot hole: Blair being negged from Yale for a relatively minor incident, or anything involving Vanessa? I LOVE V so I'm going to go with the Yale drama. Really, that's ridiculous. 4. Should Carter Baizen stick around for awhile? He can go. Then I get NB!! :D 5. Who are you happier to be rid of: Rachel or Elle? Elle. Not because I didn't like her I just didn't find the story interesting. The whole Iowa story is actually pretty entertaining. Deep down I want DS though. 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? NATE AND BLAIR. They are my love. My one and only!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (That sounds a little creepy, but truly they are my favorite couple ever.)

1. What was your favorite Gossip Girl quote from the episode? -I'm going to have to give the trophy to Boring Dan this week. His delivery of the whole "Do what you want with it" line was classic. 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? - SHE DOESN'T KNOW THAT?! 3. Bigger plot hole: Blair being negged from Yale for a relatively minor incident, or anything involving Vanessa? - I SOO want to say the Yale SL, simply because anything about it was totally unbelievable in this ep, but, you had to put V here, so, no question, really. - Although, I would like to add how unbelievable it is that Iowa knows about England, c'mon! I mean, why would Dan even TALK about that, with Iowa no less! 4. Should Carter Baizen stick around for awhile? - Totally love him because I know that if he stays, there is going to be a lot of CBCB action (Chucky and Carter :P), but I also know that if he sticks around, the writers are going to find a way to intertwine him with Blair, they always do that. But, now that I think about it, that isn't so bad either..CB 2.0 :)) 5. Who are you happier to be rid of: Rachel or Elle? - Elle. Not because of the SL, though that did suck badly, but because she wasn't a likeable OR believable actress. Puhleez, if your going to put a backbiting, two-faced, b**** in the SL, hire someone with the real acting chops to do it. 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? Is this a trick question? Why are people even asking this? CHAIRCHAIRCHAIRCHAIRCHAIR

I think taking away Yale was a bit much, but I always assumed that Queen Blair would regain her throne in Yale while getting rid of her Threat and eliminating the competition. I would have to agree with "Gossip Guy" I really thought Blair was fueled by the fact that she was hated by many that it would have made her stronger. Nelly Yuke needs to get hers. That girl has an unknown agenda I can't seem to understand. She sides with Little J and then leaves Little J when she realizes she doesn't want to be queen? That evil eye when she got accepted to Yale irked me very much. And of course I'd Prefer "Chair" over "Nair" But i love me a "Chace" too lol This love triangle is becoming so intense i cant bare to wait for the next episode! Too much to process!!! As for who i was more thrilled to have left i would have to say that it was "Rachel" that girl seriously accomplished more than needed in less than 2 episode. seriously it took Georgina about what, 4 episodes to get as far as she did! And i think she cause more damage than Georgina! The girl needs to leave and come back another day. and Elle, I don't think that her story is over. Seriously she didnt do that much damage. al she did was make chuck go back to blair, a bit late but better now than never. But i still think that there she should stir something up crazy later in the future. Like a baby bass thats not a baby bass but that is just a way for her to get money from chuck while Blair finally snaps out of her "Yale Crisis" making Blair jealous and changing her into Queen Bee again. Oh, what a vivid Imagination i have don't you think?

I'm sorry, but i really don't agree with ppl who say that bc nate was blair's 1st bf he's her true love and she'll never forget him (something like that, anyway).
In my personal experience being the 1st doesn't mean it's eternal or that it's the greatest love you'll ever have!In fact of all my friends there isn't one of us who's still with our high school sweetheart...
Sure 1st loves leave a mark on you, i'm 23 now and i still remember my bf i had when i was 16 and sure at the time i though we'd be together, get married and have kids...but now, when i think abt it'd have been a disaster, plus compared to the love i feel for my current bf, i realize that it wasn't real love!
I'm not saying it couldn't happen, i've heard stories of ppl who got it right the 1st time, but i really don't think it's that likely since ppl change a lot when there teenagers and a lot of times grow apart...
All this to say, that i don't really think it matters that blair saw nate in kinder garden and wanted to marry him immediately or that she'd tell "i'll always love you" at 16, bc to me that's obviously the illusion of a romantic teenager who's in love for the 1st time, rather than a symbol of a true lasting love...
Anyway, hope i didn't bore you to dead with my post... :)

1.Favorite GG quote from the episode: I have to say there are 2 of them: Chuck’s line: “I’ll wait� (Just too adorable despite the Elle rubbish) & the declaration of “I’m gay!� by the handsome director Julian - I couldn’t help but laugh. 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? I think she will become a little rebellious and mess around a bit, especially when she realises how it bothers Chuck. I think Chuck has done his growing up and it’s now time for Blair to do the same if we want a reunion with the pair. And I believe Nate and Carter are the two guys to make her learn. I’m looking forward to an outrageous Blair and even more for the tension filled scenes with her and Chuck! 3. Bigger plot hole: Blair being negged from Yale for a relatively minor incident, or anything involving Vanessa? I think they were just making a story which writers are meant to do, whether it would happen in reality, God knows, but it worked well to out Ms Carr and get rid of her and that’s all that matters! As for Vanessa, I actually like her as a character – she’s uncomplicated, funny at times and her character has really become a solid member of the show. I think a romantic storyline between she and Dan would be good or a get back together with Nate eventually. They really grew on me as a couple, especially in the Age of Dissonance. 4. Should Carter Baizen stick around for a while? No, I think viewers are quite protective of the regular characters and any outsiders that come in are not usually wanted around for long, especially if they cause a stir in the plot lines for potential couples. Once his job is done he should go and hopefully it will be within the next few episodes. 5.Who are you happier to be rid of: Rachel or Elle? Elle, and even though she gave Chuck the advice he needed, she was getting in the way of our beloved Chair. 6. 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? I am hopeful, well rather praying it is Chuck and Blair who end up together at the end of the season, yet who knows what the writers have planned. I would like to see a bit of Blair and Nate, but ultimately I want Chair. Who doesn’t?!

bonus question:
definitely nate and blair!!!
they belong together

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. That's why I like carter, too! :)

I don't really care about any other character besides my Chair. Yes, I am happy Elle is gone, but I hate the fact that Blair is getting involve with Carter and maybe getting back together with Nate. Then again part of me would be fine to see Chuck fighting for Blair.

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.
