Gossip Girl Round Table: "Valley Girls"

by at . Comments

You've sounded off in our Valley Girls" include memorable lines, the pros and cons of '80s Lily, Nair's breakup, Derena's future and next week's finale ...

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

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

DANdy: Carol's reference to a music video as equating to "national exposure [and] the birth of a new art form." This was true for awhile on MTV, but the network then killed the music video in favor of people such as Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt. I blame you for their existence, Carol.

Gossip Guy: Can I actually go with the whole exchange of Dorota bringing the dress to Blair instead of a quote? I guess if we had to limit it to just a quote, I'll go with the "This body bag, corpse not pretty" as she held up the dry cleaning bag.

Mister Meester: I love my celebrity gossip, so it's gotta be Blair's observation that "Serena's been in jail for four hours, she's already served more time than Lindsay Lohan and Nicole Richie combined!" She must think these up in advance.

2. Did Blair break up with Nate for the right reasons?

DANdy: Yes. There are always three acceptable reasons for a break up: infidelity; a sex change; and clearly being in love with your boyfriend's BFF.

Mister Meester: While I agree with Gossip Girl that our queen was with the wrong king up on that stage, it still seemed a little sudden and forced to me. Nate received virtually no explanation, nor did he ask for one. Perhaps without devoting half the episode to flashbacks, this could have been developed better.

Gossip Guy:  No. The right reasons were because he's not Chuck, but at least she made the choice in the end.

3. Will Dan and Serena get together ... again?

Mister Meester: I hope so. Since the beginning of the series I've been a sucker for my Derena. They definitely have their share of issues and need to take it slower to make it actually last this time, but that's one journey I want to be a part of. Now.

DANdy: Wait, they're not together? I can't keep up with these two!

Gossip Guy: That was actually ridiculously sweet what he did. My only issues are, eww, couldn't the girl have gone home and showered after being in jail before going to prom? Anyways, I was very happy these two went to prom together, but I just don't think they're going to work.

4. What did you like most about the '80s scenes?

Gossip Guy: No Doubt, excuse me, Snowed Out, rocking out. How does Gwen Stefani still look that good? Oh, and the rest of the rocking 80's music and ridiculous outfits.

DANdy: The cocaine snorting. I really miss those days.

Mister Meester: I'm a sucker for '80s hits, so definitely the music. I also loved Kryster Ritter as Carol, and the role-reversing tie-ins with 2009 Lily's struggle with Serena didn't make the flashbacks seem quite as forced as I expected.

5. What did you like least about the '80s scenes?

Mister Meester: Three words, eight letters: zzz zz zzz. Don't get me wrong, they did a nice enough job with the flashbacks. I'm just a little confused as to why I should care about this supporting character's exploits in an era I can only vaguely recall. And by that, I obviously mean I was walking around in a drug-induced haze three years old.

Gossip Guy: The lame casting of Brittany Snow. She's cute. Her acting wasn't bad. But I'm sorry, there's no way I'll ever believe her as a young Kelly Rutherford. You guys ever hear of height, eyes, and facial structure? I'd like to personally fire whoever made this casting call. It completely dispelled any chance of me believing these scenes.

DANdy: The cocaine snorting. It reminded me of Darryl Strawberry's fall from grace.

BONUS QUESTION: Fill in the blanks based on the CW's season finale synopsis: Blair and Chuck finally ______. Serena is shocked by ______. Georgina decides to ______. Dan, Nate, and Vanessa unknowingly ________.

DANdy: Blair and Chuck finally have sex in a bed. Serena is shocked by the ample size of her bosom. Georgina decides to run for Congress. Dan, Nate, and Vanessa unknowingly shower together.

Gossip Guy: Blair and Chuck finally confess their love. Serena is shocked by to learn even her looks can't get the money back. Georgina decides to leave the show and end the crappy crime caper storyline. Dan, Nate, and Vanessa unknowingly have a devil's threesome. Not sure how unknowingly.

Mister Meester: Blair and Chuck finally ... say what we've been waiting to hear for so long? Serena is shocked by ... the identity of her half-brother? Georgina decides to ... move back to New York? D and N hook up with V unbeknownst to the other?

Nothing, the whole thing detracted from the original episode. It really did spoil the episode for me! What did you like least about the '80s scenes?

1. What was your favorite Gossip Girl quote from the episode?
I need to give it to Dan, "I need a prom dress." 2. Did Blair break up with Nate for the right reasons?
Yes because we all know that she definately belongs with Chuck. I hate Nate and Blair together, makes me want to barf. 3. Will Dan and Serena get together ... again?
I hope so. I like them together, but then that gets in the way of Lily and Rufus and I think they need to be together so I guess no they shouldnt be together. 4. What did you like most about the '80s scenes?
I loved the clothes. aggg. 5. What did you like least about the '80s scenes?
I don't like how they casted. I mean Brittney Snow looks nothing like Kelley Rutherford or Blake Lively. AHHH. I mean Serena looks like Lily, and Lily looks like CeCe but CeCe doesnt look like young CeCe and Lily doesnt look like young Lily. (i know confusing) BONUS QUESTION:
Blair and Chuck finally say I love you to eachother. Serena is shocked by who GG is. Georgina decides to become a bitch again and ruin everyones lives. Dan, Nate, and Vanessa unknowingly end up as roomates.

1. What was your favorite Gossip Girl quote from the episode?
That claim from Dorota:"This body bag, corpse not pretty". Or B:"I OWN PROM!" 2. Did Blair break up with Nate for the right reasons?
It's already too obvious that she never loved Nate for the right purposes. She does love him, but not in a boyfriend way anymore. Nate knew this and tried to make it work, to no avail. Blair belongs with Chuck! 3. Will Dan and Serena get together ... again?
I don't give it hope that Darena will work again. I'll give it more chance Serena and Nate will end up together, rather that than her going back to Dan and let their relationship swing in circles. I sort of always hoped from the beginning that Nate and Serena will be eventually together. Ever since she returned. 4. What did you like most about the '80s scenes?
It was great to see Lily's backstory being established. I really like Brittany Snow, and she quite plays the Lily role very well. Aside from their eye color difference, I think that I'm safe to say that it was a good episode. Also, it was good to see the complete 80's style. It almost made me wanting that style, cause it was so simple. 5. What did you like least about the '80s scenes?
I can't come up with a better thing, but I didn't like the scene of Keith van der Woodsen so much. Or better, the actor that plays him. Come on, I didn't think of Keith like that. BONUS QUESTION: Blair and Chuck finally kiss. Serena is shocked by Gossip Girl blast. Georgina decides to wreak havoc. Dan, Nate, and Vanessa unknowingly meets Scott, Rufus and Lily's love child.

Gossip Girl Season 2 Episode 24 Quotes

Ahh ... who knew the MotherChucker could also play fairy godmother. But if C just made B's dreams come true, why does it feel like our queen is standing with the wrong king?

[to Lily] When I'm a mother I will be nothing like you. I would rather give my kids up for adoption than be like you. Oh wait, you did that.
