Gossip Girl Round Table: "The Lady Vanished"

at . Comments

Welcome to TV Fanatic's Gossip Girl Round Table, where we gather to review the events of "The Lady Vanished" and discuss the developments to come.

This week's topics include memorable GG quotes, Serenate vs. Chair (again), Jenny's v-card, various shady characters and whether Danessa is hot or not ...


1. What was your favorite Gossip Girl quote last night?

DANdy: Blair to Serena: "You haven't eaten bread since middle school." BAM!

Gossip Guy: I don't know why, but Chuck's line about Bart telling him kids wear should wear suits to Kindergarten killed me. Maybe it's because I pictured a five year old Chuck rocking a pin stripe as he managed the other kids finger painting.

Mister Meester: An epic Chuck Bass quote, just two words long: No talking.

2. Who's shadier: Damien or Chuck's supposed mom?

DANdy: Tie. Damien is more outwardly, unabashedly so, having no regrets about slinging drugs or trying to get Jenny naked. But is Chuck's "mom" up to something more diabolical?

Gossip Guy: Damien for sure. Besides carrying the name of the demonic child from The Omen, look at the dude's creepy '80s hair. Who does he think he is, Gordon Gecko? I say watch out Jenny, he's probably just coming in for a Bass Industries hostile takeover.

Mister Meester: Elizabeth/Evelyn. Something about her story doesn't add up. If I were Chuck, I'd ask for a DNA test, 'cause his mommy issues are getting straight up exploited.

3. Should Jenny give up her v-card to Damien?

DANdy: Yes. She already ran away from home. What else is there to do?

Gossip Guy: Sure, if she really wants to exchange her v-card for a raging set of herpes the rest of her life. If it were my choice, that creep would be in jail for statutory rape.

Mister Meester: Please don't, J. We know you've got the good-girl-gone-bad thing going, and it suits you well. But he's not deserving of this. Hold off, you'll be glad you did!

4. We know we asked it last week, but after some of the racy and emotional scenes last night, we have to run it back again: which couple will last longer: Serenate or Chair?

Gossip Guy: Well it really depends on how long Serenate can last off attraction alone. Actually, I dunno, did you see that hot sex scene together? Really though, who keeps a bowl of strawberries and whipped cream in the fridge!? Oh wait, Blair... actually that's totally believable. Sorry, where was I? Oh yes, I'm not convinced these two can hold conversation long enough to get through a bread-less meal. Sure they had that one scene of dialogue together last night, but even I could barely sit through it. How do you expect the two of them to do that every day!? People this beautiful were meant to be seen, not heard. So my rambling conclusion? Chair's got them beat, but until they break up, I will be enjoying my soft-core porn each week courtesy of Serenate.

DANdy: Serenate. At least I hope so. I'd love to see more of S' oxford collection.

Mister Meester: Serenate clearly has chemistry, but right now they're running solely on passion. Not that it isn't hot, but it remains to be seen if it'll sustain. Chair is forever.


5. Danessa: Hot or not?

Mister Meester: As I said in our review of "The Lady Vanished," I wasn't a big fan at first, but something about these two awkward dorks just clicks with me. Glad they gave it a try. I'll give Danessa a cautious "hot," pending developments in future episodes.

DANdy: Uhh, as hot as the photo above possibly can be?

Gossip Guy: I swear this is not for shock value... but actually kind of hot. We're not talking A+ hot. That was a pretty bold claim there Dan ... but considering the fact it involves Vanessa, you guys should be pretty happy I'm giving you a C+. That means I'll watch each week, but I'm not exactly hopping in for a devil's threesome.

What do you think? Sound off in the comments!

mister meester is forever


1.my favourites were first blairs to serena 'sit your ass down' and chuck's to blair 'no talking'...
2.I feel the same way like mister meester.Elizabeth seems shadier.theres something wrong with that woman.she still seems mysterious.
3.I don't mind if Jenny gives her v card to Damien or not.but giving it to a drug dealer fits with her character.
4.CHAÄ°R gets stronger and stronger every week.even if they break up its certain that they will find their way to eachother.I mean they have to.Nate is like a new toy for Serena.these two are like testing everyone.if it doesn't work they will find new toys.CHAÄ°R FOREVER....
5.Dan and Vanessa are good together.they can understand eachother at least.


@ TFV168
The show is going to stop being predictable, when you'll stop reading the spoilers ;))


I'm just happy that Dan and Vanessa together keep them from interfering with the other characters. That way, I can just fast forward their scenes and pretend they don't exist.


1. My favorite quote was Nate " I'm enjoying this. I mean, we broke my dresser." Classy!
2. Well, we all knew Chuck's "mom" was going to stick around right? And that she's Jack's puppet? And we all know Damien is full of horse manure? We're not buying his story? No child who sees their father getting wasted/stoned on drugs to that extent, steals the drugs and sells them to someone else so that some stranger can do the exact same thing! No, they're going to get rid of the drugs by flushing them down the toilet. So my answer is Damien.
3. First it's the V-card then she's doing a line of coke.........
4. Serenate has the passionate relationship, but Chair's got that deeper connection. Chair's going to go the distance here.
5. Danessa - seriously boring! I FF'd thru all their scenes without even bothering to give them a chance.
Bonus Question - When is this show going to stopping being so predictable? It wasn't like this the first two seasons!


I was looking at some promo pics for 3x15 and I have a weird feeling that Jenny's gonna lose her virginity, not to Damien, but you can probably guess. I don't even want to say it b/c I really like Serenate. in the clip, Serena was saying the whole you never forget your first time speech to Jenny. Blair wanted her first time to be with Nate back in season 1, and the whole Serena-Nate thing happened. I have a feeling tables are gonna turn. Serena and Nate fight. Nate comes to Jenny's rescue, and you can fill in the blank. Hope I'm wrong, but we'll see....


I liked all thee emotions on the last episode but I cant help but feel cheated because after waiting FREAKING MONTHS to see chuck and blair HAVE SEX, it was VERY disappointing to see that you only showed a FREAKING LITTLE KISS and then NOTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!­!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! we are NOT children here ppl, if you can show a three-some, nate and serena all over each other without even a first date, i FAIL TO SEE why you can't show the BEST COUPLE EVER GOING AT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NONSENSE!


I have to day that I actually like Dan and Vanessa much better together. They just...work. I think the show is getting everything right at the moment, but obviously that's going to get boring and they're going to have to shake it up a bit. I can't wait to see what happens with all these "Perfect Couples" Before the end of the season and into next.


The episode for me had its good and bad moments.
First off, I thought that Serena and Nate’s breakfast scene was completely unnecessary. They ruined breakfast for me. Ewwwwww. Serena at least had a reason for being in this episode, as she was there to support Chuck, Nate didn’t. All he did was stand and look clueless about everything. Booooring.
Dan and Vanessa for the most part were boring as well. I feel like the idea of using fake boyfriend/girlfriend to make the person you like jealous is old. For Chair it won’t but for everyone else it has.
Jenny took up a lot of screen time with her damn relationship with Damien. I can’t believe all that went down only took place in the Palace.
Chuck and Blair of course was the most interesting. They had the most screen time so I’m happy about that. However, I hate the lack fluff that could have happened with them. There were soooo many scenes where they could have held hands or kiss. Was that the Chair sex scene of the week? Because it sucked. There was like two seconds of them kissing and then the scene was over. B.S.
I can’t help but feel how creepy that woman was. If there is something g she is trying to hide, than the actress is not doing a good job portraying it.
I loved how Chuck and Blair stayed so close throughout the episode. I would have like to see them go visit Bart’ grave like they planned together.
Nooooooo!!!!!! I cannot believe Jack is back. H better not come in between Chair. I hate him sooooo much. I hope this is truly be the last time I ever have to see his face again.
To end on a good note, I hope there will be more Chair fluff, and I am really excited to see how Blair’s and Chuck’s supposed plays out as I saw the promo of all three of them spending time together but gets ambush by paparazzi.
Chair Forever!!!


@Tha Phoenix HA! TOTALLY!!!! :P
and same @Lila Chair will always be my number 1!! :)
