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.

Brittany Snow as Lily Rhodes, circa 1983.

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?

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

or whatever B said when they asked her to vote. 2. Did Blair break up with Nate for the right reasons?
she's in love with chuck, isn't that an obvious yes?
3. Will Dan and Serena get together ... again?
Just because they can't stay together doesn't mean they won't be together.
Derena has just as big of a fan base as Chair. 4. What did you like most about the '80s scenes?
hmmm. to the empala! the what?
there's no way, rich or not, that Lily is that clueless.
5. What did you like least about the '80s scenes?
Why should we care about Lily's past? The only thinh i care about is her and Rufus' past together, but that's not shown.

You know what, we as in the whole Chair-Fan family has waited long enough. The producers and writers said Chuck and Blair will be the super-couple of season 2 yet all that we see are episode where they don’t interact at all and when they do it’s not enough. This episode would qualify in the not enough categories.
I hate it when they kept flashing back to Lily in her teens. Half of the episode was about her. No offense but if it was the case for anyone that are NOT Chuck and Blair I would be piss too.
Dan and Serena at prom? Are you kidding me? They broke up for a reason. They broke up so situation like this don’t happen.
Seriously, someone shoot Nate. Gossip Girl has never been more right when she said Blair was standing with the wrong king. If Chuck was the one standing with her and dancing with her, prom won’t feel like a memory but a true dream come true.
Chuck was so sweet for doing all of this for Blair. He put up a brave smile when Blair was up on stage getting her crown, but we all know it killed him to see freakin Nate standing next to her. Trust, me Chuck, it killed everyone to see Blair with Nate.
But then they broke up!!!Sure I would have loved it more to see how Blair dumped his sorry ass but this was great too.
Now it’s graduation. They are now nothing standing in the way of Chuck and Blair being together. I love the promo; unlike the last one it gives me hope for Chair. Chuck has to say “I love you� to her. If my favorite couple, Chair, reunites it will make Gossip Girl the greatest show on earth.

favourite quote; ''this body bag, corpse not pretty'' dorota is so cute! blair and nate break up; i understand hy she did it, and why she didnt want to say or actually officially say anything, as she didnt want to ruint he nght, in which she always planned, also second reason, this is blair waldorf, she is more exciting than to stay with your high school boyfriend forever. likes about 80's flashbacks; i was surprized, at first i wasn't interested AT ALL but now i quite like it, and leave brittany snow alone, i'm starting to feel sorry for her for the amount of critisism she is getting.
carol is great :) dislikes about 80's flashbacks; i didnt like cici, shes meant to be a bitch, but she actually isnt, just a snob. she actually cares about lily. and i dont like the outfit lily chose, from carols locker, there were such nicer ones! like the one with the high waisted skirt and crop top, that was nice on her :) bonus question; Blair and Chuck finally face what they are, either just an excitement or the 'real thing', and officially finish it, or 'work it out' aha.. Serena is shocked by the gssip girl blast obviously, and also about her half-brother? if she actually finds out about him, that might be a cliff hanger for next season, like they meet scott, but don't realise he is their hald-brother. Georgina decides to finish off poppy and stay in NY. Dan, Nate, and Vanessa unknowingly meet serena's and dans half-brother.

1. What was your favorite Gossip Girl quote from the episode? Dan: "Who even voted for her?" Hilarious!
Then of course chuck "I did. 150 times." My heart just melted! 2. Did Blair break up with Nate for the right reason? Yes. Blair finally understood that a relationship without love isn't worth it no matter how perfect it looks from the outside! I, for one, find that a major breakthrough for her character!
Then of course there's the obv "i'm in love with your bff" reason, but i don't blame blair for not using it with nate, even though i found nate to be a real jerk lately i think that'd have been a little to hard on him... 3. Will Dan and Serena get together ... again? Probably, but not to soon i hope, i like them, but the on and of thing is really tiresome... 4. What did you like most about the '80s scenes? Carol, she was cool and i the really like the actress! 5. What did you like least about the '80s scenes? I didn't like most of the 80s scenes, but i mostly hated the fact that it robbed the fans of a proper gg prom episode! 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 ________. Blair and Chuck finally exchange ily and get together!
Serena is shocked by what gossip girl will do to her and her friends out of revenge! (after serena declares war on her!)
Georgina decides to plot against blair for sending her to boot camp!
Dan, Nate and Vanessa unknowingly make the same travel plans for the summer either that or they meet the love child!

hmm..where was RUFUS??? I thoght HE was her love 20 years ago not that guy Owen!! but I LOVED the flashbacks!! hope it actually happens! I think Carol and Serena's father should guest in GG, so we know how they are now. Her father seemed like an ass, maybe he's chaged or..dead?
