Gossip Girl Round Table: "The Grandfather"

by at . Comments

Welcome to the Gossip Girl Insider Round Table!

As fans gather in our The Grandfather" include memorable quotes, Lily's past, poor Vanessa, Chuck's quandary, and what's up next for Nair and Chair ...

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

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

DANdy: When Carter referred to Chuck as the "Bass cop." The pun itself was atrocious, but gotta admire the guy for trying.

Gossip Guy: I think I have to give this one for Dan when he asks Vanessa, "do you think the Humphreys have a crest that Jenny could sew onto one of my cardigans?"

Mister Meester: I enjoyed Vanessa's lamenting to Dan and Jenny about Nate: "We broke up. Well, we didn't actually break up, we just ... it is what it is." A perfect summation, as none of us know how to describe their relationship either. I also loved this exchange: Serena: "Chuck, she's embarrassed, so we've gotta give her time to lick her wounds." Chuck: "Maybe I could lick them for her." I don't even know what that's supposed to mean from a sexual standpoint, but you knew he was gonna go there.

2. Will the past continue to be an issue for Lily and Rufus?

DANdy: Maybe. I just don't feel like I know enough about Lily's past to form an opinion yet. If only there were some upcoming TV show that would shed more light on it...

Mister Meester: I don't know, but if this was a Lost spoilers-style flash forward of sorts, setting us up for some of Lily's past trysts as shown on the Gossip Girl spinoff, kudos to Josh Schwartz & Co. I cannot wait to see an impressionable young L (Brittany Snow) getting trashed backstage at Nine Inch Nails and Guns n' Roses concerts.

Gossip Guy: I'm not sure which part of their past I'm shocked about, the rock star Rufus' numbers being so low or Lily van der Woodsen always being alluded to as such a slut yet only have two pages of names. I was expecting a novel. But to answer your question, no way. Rufus is too calm and collected.

3. Do you feel bad for Vanessa?

Mister Meester: A little. We were just starting to get to see a little of Nate's relationship with V and it wasn't all bad. Then her own goodness in pushing him to reconcile with his family ended up being her undoing. That's just cold, fate. Cold.

DANdy: Yes. All that bashing, courtesy of Gossip Guy, every week on the Round Table can't be good for her self-esteem.

Gossip Guy: Seriously? Next question.

4. Should Chuck have done as requested when Blair said "take me now," or did he handle the situation correctly?

Gossip Guy: Chuck, I admire that you were trying to do the right thing but you are a better man than I. Idiot.

DANdy: He handled the situation properly... for any normal, self-respecting human being. But that's not what we want from Chuck Bass! Dude should have chucked his reservations and tapped that Bass (that's how it's done, Carter!).

Mister Meester: Bless his heart, Chuck has now passed up multiple opportunities to close the deal with Blair because it wasn't perfect. This man is a softie at heart, despite his earlier claims that he doesn't have a romantic bone in his body (least of all that one). He had better sleep around with his chiropractors in the meantime, though, lest this revelation be leaked in a Gossip Girl blast and sully his reputation.

Did Chuck Bass blow his big chance at Blair Waldorf?

5. What's next for Blair and Nate?

Gossip Guy: OMG. I knew this was coming from all the Gossip Girl spoilers, but it still kills me to watch a man other than Chuck in there.

DANdy: Breakfast, served by Dorota.

Mister Meester: I'm looking forward to the love quadrangle in next week's episode, with Chuck and Vanessa teaming up to get back and Blair and Nate! That should be good, as Jessica Szohr and Ed Westwick are definitely comfortable smooching (see Miami pics). Unfortch, my guess is Nair is in and Chair out for the forseeable future.

PLEASE REPLY 2 THIS COMMENT!! i know that tripp was kinda drunk when he gave vanessa that hug, but didn't it seem a little too tender?(not sure if thats the best word...)
And then with the fact that he's supposed to be a kind-of player - as reported on a spoiler - i wondered if that was supposed to mean anything? Or am i just getting a bit too deep??

I dont see the chemistry with Nair either. I did think their scenes were cute as friends though. She just has this steaming hot chemistry with Chuck. You're a fool to deny it. Seriously i dont know about them just belonging together but I know i love to see them together as more than just friends. Its more believable too. Chair= sexy, steamy, entertaining, and hot. Nair is = highschool cute, romantic, safe, and unraunchy. I just prefer sexy to cute. Which is what chair is to nair.

1. What was your favorite Gossip Girl quote from the episode? Dorota speaking in polish was priceless! 2. Will the past continue to be an issue for Lily and Rufus? I guess they're could be some interesting storylines there, like serena's dad appearing, maybe? 3. Do you feel bad for Vanessa? I do, nate owed her to a least talk to her after he publicly accepted the internship, instead of going of with another girl, when they weren't actually broken up...Don't really care abt vanessa, but nate just keeps getting worse and worse in my book... 4. Should Chuck have done as requested when Blair said "take me now," or did he handle the situation correctly? No, chuck did the right thing, i actually think he does the right thing more often them he gets credit for!He acts like he doesn't care, he'll do whatever he wants, but when the time comes he actually proves to have a good heart (not sleeping with the girl blair was babysitting, helping nate out several times even though he wasn't even talking to him,etc)! 5. What's next for Blair and Nate? Hopefully this will be the beginning of the end!
I don't mind them as friends, but honestly i've tried to keep an open mind last night, but i just don't like them as a couple, i don't see any sparks much less love, i saw a tiered, sad blair who found comfort in an old friend, not so much bc of him but bc of what the past represents at this point in her life (she's lost so she holding on to a past when she felt safe).
I really think blair is a character with so much potential it'd be a shame to use her in this relationship...It's not that nb are bad it's just to me they're "whatever" and i except a lot more from blair's scenes!

1. What was your favorite Gossip Girl quote from the episode? A: Serena to Chuck: "Blair got rejected from Yale."
Chuck: "Hm. The one thing she wanted more than me. That hurts." 2. Will the past continue to be an issue for Lily and Rufus? A: It really shouldn't be, unless the writers get super bored, of course. 3. Do you feel bad for Vanessa? A: A little, mostly cos I hate Blair and Nate together. Had they hooked Nate up with someone else.. maybe I wouldn't. 4. Should Chuck have done as requested when Blair said "take me now," or did he handle the situation correctly? A: Nah. What fun would it be if Chuck has sex with some crazy form of Blair? 5. What's next for Blair and Nate? A: Hopefully nothing much. I hate them together. So much.

My fave quote was definitely when Blair said to Chuck (sorry I don't remember exact words) "Well then, maybe I should go up on the roof to make it more dramatic." sorry for paraphrasing but that was high-larious!!!!!!! I love chuck to death but lol!

Blair's fashion sense gets way better when she goes off the rails and her choice of lipstick is much more suited.

1. What was your favorite Gossip Girl quote from the episode? "Do you think the Humphreys have a crest that Jenny could sew onto one of my cardigans?" Welcome back Dan! 2. Will the past continue to be an issue for Lily and Rufus? Don't really care... 3. Do you feel bad for Vanessa? I do, but after hearing trip's gf saying "welcome to the next 30 years" i really think vanessa dodge the bullet! 4. Should Chuck have done as requested when Blair said "take me now," or did he handle the situation correctly? Chuck was really sweat throwout the entire ep, made me love his character even more! 5. What's next for Blair and Nate? I kind of bored with blair right now, she was so childish yet again!
And i'm really starting to dislike the way she treats serena, i mean does she really need to tell her dan slept with the teacher like that?! Serena spent the whole time trying to help her, it was really uncalled for!
Ah well, the scene of nate and blair talking was ok at least it looked like they were a little more mature than usual, but i'm sorry, i don't feel any chemistry between them, to me blair could have been having that conversation with serena, it'd have the same effect (IMO).
And nate should have come clean to vanessa abt wanting to take the internship when he started to think abt it...seriously does he ever learn? I'm so over undecided nate...
