Gossip Girl Round Table: "The Treasure of Serena Madre"

by at . Comments

As our Treasure of Serena Madre" include classic quotes, Eric's revenge, Danessa, Stripp, and what Maureen will be plotting next ...

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

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

DANdy: Dorota's lamenting of the fact that Vanya has stopped "calling. And texting. And tweeting. And writing on wall." Maybe now that I've given her a shout-out, D will finally friend me!

Gossip Guy: When Blair thought her mom was pregnant and she declared the world doesn't need another Aaron Rose. So true and such a good throwback to a character we almost forgot existed. It was a dark time in our (and Serena's) lives.

Mister Meester: Blair had some classics, but Eric's self-zinger at the beginning killed me: "Sorry Rufus, but you can't really blame her. Our Thanksgivings usually end with french fries in a diner and someone being in a mental institution."

2. Was this the best episode of the season so far?

DANdy: Is that a joke? It included a sex tape of Serena and showed nary a bare breast! WORST EPISODE EVER!

Gossip Guy: Well, since I do consider Gossip Girl Insider to be the definitive Gossip Girl reference, I'm going to have to say that with a "9.8" it is in fact the best episode of the season. And come on, it brought back Eleanor and gave Dorota a prominent story line! How could it not be the best?

Mister Meester: No doubt. The results don't lie, and with good reason. Last night saw the return of actual scandal, romantic drama we actually cared about (poor Nate), plus some humor and OMG ... Dorota!? Well done, Schwartz & Co.

3. Should Serena have gone with Tripp or stayed with Nate?

DANdy: Gone with Tripp. What fun is it to hiberNATE in the city when you can, ummm, go on a Tripp with your latest misguided boy toy.

Mister Meester: Despite Nate's pleas, you knew she was going to leave with Tripp. To paraphrase one of many funny 30 Rock quotes, bad decisions are like Gatorade to this cleavage-laden vixen ... it's like they replenish her electrolytes or something.

Gossip Guy: You kidding me? Despite my work on this site's header, I think we all know my love of the man bangs.

4. Do you want to see Dan and Vanessa as a couple?

Gossip Guy: Seriously? Gross.

DANdy: Not if it means we see more of Mrs. Abrams. She makes Dina Lohan look like an un-annoying mother that cares about her children.

Mister Meester: As much as I pine for Derena and can't help but think about their Christmas love scene in "Roman Holiday," I think this pairing makes sense for Dan. You know what they say. Sometimes it takes a threesome with your movie star girlfriend and your best friend to realize your true feelings for the latter.

It's no longer if, but just a matter of when Danessa gets together.

5. Will Eric take down Jenny? How will he try?

Gossip Guy: I'd love to think so, but until the producers see the error of their ways and make Connor Paolo a full on cast member, I just don't see how he can be the Queen of the School. Wait, is that offensive?

Mister Meester: I don't really buy Eric as the vengeful type, but J does need to be knocked down a peg for selling out her own sort-of-brother. I just hope that eggs, Nairtinis and see-through dresses are involved in E's plans.

DANdy: Yes, and it should be easy. He'll open a window in her bedroom and watch as a strong gust of wind blows over her gaunt frame.

BONUS QUESTION: What will Maureen do with the letter?

Mister Meester: Hopefully give it back to Lily, so she can continue her relentless pursuit of a new record for most consecutive terrible places to hide damaging information from an unstable daughter. Seriously? In a coat pocket?

DANdy: Probably throw it away. I can't imagine she recycles.

Gossip Guy: Well it appears she will attempt to blackmail Serena into staying away from Tripp, only pushing her further into the arms of this apparently terrible driver.

I'd love to see Eric make a play for Queen, but just to prove to Jenny that he can take it from her. I think the show needs at least a few people not totally given over to poor conduct to keep it slightly realistic.
Chuck Bass... need I say more? I love that Blair calls him just "Bass" how sexy is that?! Chair lines usually win best quote, hands down.
I agree with everyone who said Nate's acting is waaay getting better. He *really* sold the "it's always been you Serena" bit. Come to think of it, if he had actually said "it's always been you, Serena" I would have been crying like a baby. How could she choose Tripp?! INSANE! CHOOSE NATE! CHOOSE NATE! (yes, I am not mentioning Danessa or Rufus/Lily/Dr. Van der Woodsen)

WHY, OH WHY do both this website and Wikipedia say that the next Gossip Girl episode [after The Debarted] is not until MARCH? Will we not get our Christmas episode?! Will it really be that long of a break? :[

1. Quote: Eric, after Jenny confronted him at the dinner table "the sweet potatoes are bland."
2. yes so far this is the best....finally some drama!
3. Yes Dan and Vanessa make a nice couple...for now...I just don't see them as the end game...I think there is someone else out there for Dan.
4. Not sure if the writers will let him take her down...but I'm sure hoping he gets some real good licks in...she needs to respect him more than she has been..plus ERIC ROCKS!!
5. She will use the knowledge obtained in the letter to somehow help her to get her man back! it won't be blackmail...Serena already saw it ..right?

1. Serena gets a bit more stupid in accordance with the amount of breast she decides to show. No breasts=No brains.
2.Blair let Serena go after all that Monica Lewinsky shit talking she did? I'm Canadian and even I know better then to repeat those mistakes.She should have slapped S and told her to stop when the bleach in her hair starts eating away at her brain.She's getting waaay more retarded. Even her "Healthy" relationships she turns into trainwrecks .
3. I'm seriously hating her this season.

on the contrary the writers never go away from writing Serena the exact same...they have always written serena as a self serving, selfish slut that goes after all the wrong men, usually the unavailable kind, preferring to leave the guys that are somewhat upstanding and at the very least, in this case, cute....
LOVE CHAIR
Would love to see some steamy scenes of them
LOVE CHAIR

OMG, totally forgot to say this before:
how extremely poor was the Serenate storyline, when they were standing outside and he said "please don't get in the car..."
there must've been anyone besides me thinking "that's so season 2 Chair"... I mean COME ON writers, any new ideas, please?!!

Gossip de la girl

Round Table equals love. + awesome episode.
