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?

“I've always tried to make my life resemble the movie inside my head, and tonight no effort required, voila�. ... The way she said Voila ahaha was perfect. 2. Did Blair break up with Nate for the right reasons?
Maybe not to Nate, but for Blair.. YES.. and she's right.. she stayed with Nate just because it was her dream since she was 12... but now she's a grown up woman and she's assuming that she's in love so badly with Chuck..

SweetNemesis: I actually like your version of what happens to G and N. I mean, trying to seduce C would lead to B getting jealous. But it would strengthen their relationship. And then N could go out with G and try to change her and succeed, but then he gets his heart broken and who is there to save him...? (SERENASERENASERENA) I hope the writers totally do this!

Blair and Chuck finally become a couple. Serena is shocked by the mess she created by bringing Gabriel in everybody's lifes and forgets about as soon as she sees her pretty face in the next mirror, she meets a guy (80% douche), likes him, only this time they REALLY share - wait for it - DNA. Georgina decides to move back to NY and spread Drama over CB, when she tries to seduce Chuck mid-next season. When she fails, she goes for Nate instead who jumps at his first interesting plot since the BNS triangle, is convinced he "changed" her and gets his heart broken, when she dumps him after realizing he actually could. Dan, Nate, and Vanessa unknowingly befriend the son of Rufus&Lily.

I think Dan , Nate, and Vanessa have a threesome.
Or something along those lines. And duh, chuck and Blair finally tell each othe rhow they feel at the same moment. And Blair's line was the best. I own prom!

Chairfan08

I LOVED the Chair interactions...I seriously started to cry, Chuck is so, so sweet. Hopefully after all of that he realizes that he CAN make her happy.

The 80's scenes needed more Less than Zero effects...Meaning they weren't shady enough...They needed more sleez, more drugs, more randomness. They were good and got the point across, but 1980 is not 2009...So don't try to cover up 2009 with some fugly clothes - those shoes Brittany was wearing with that outfit was so not going with that 80's look. Some 80's montage of hits and a kick ass cameo by No Doubt...MORE SLEEZ PLEASE

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.
