Tonight's Gossip Girl: "Valley Girls" (a.k.a. The Episode That Ruined Prom)

by at . Comments

This evening's Gossip Girl, "Valley Girls," was the penultimate episode of Season 2.

It featured parallel mother-daughter conflicts spanning multiple generations and a ton of '80s fashion and music, which was pretty fun and harmless enough.

But for many fans, the backdoor pilot for the spinoff that never ended up happening is also remembered for what it did not feature - more than a few short sequences of the Upper East Siders' prom, and the drama and romance behind it. Alas.

While we thought the spinoff idea featuring young Lily was kinda cool, we'd prefer if future gimmicks didn't impede on Gossip Girl. Okay, Josh and Stephanie?

With that out of the way, follow the link for our recap of "Valley Girls."

Just two more weeks until the Season Three premiere of Gossip Girl! Thanks for watching along with us and visiting our website all season long!

Dude I totally agree. This was a horrible episode. Nobody is interested in Lily or Rufus!!! BTW it did ruin prom!


This episode was just a big disappointment. I hated it.
Well, what I really hated was the stuff with Lily.
I just wanted to see everything about Prom.
I didn't care for Lily's past. The show is about the teens.
Not the parents.
