Welcome to TV Fanatic's Gossip Girl Round Table, where our staffers have gathered to review "The Unblairable Lightness of Being" and preview developments to come.
DANdy, Gossip Guy and Mister Meester take on last night's top quotes, whether Chuck should be forgiven, Jenny's shadiness, Dorota's wedding and much more here:
1. What was your favorite Gossip Girl quote last night?
DANdy: Elliot is "tight" with Dorota because they "talked about The Vampire Diaries in the elevator on Friday?" That's amazing and hilarious. I'll forgive the blatant CW plug because the show in question is so darn good.
Gossip Guy: With out a doubt Chuck for calling out Serenate's biggest problem, "whose hair is more shiny?" I have got to find out whatever product those two are using.
Mister Meester: Tie: 1. Jenny "I hate to be the one to tell you, but Serena left with Carter." Yeah, I'm sure you really hate that, you conniving little ... 2. Eleanor's name-dropping of Bing. LOL. There's no way Eleanor Waldorf knows what the eff Bing even is, let alone uses it to look up wedding venues ... or says it OUT LOUD.
2. Should Blair have forgiven Chuck?
DANdy: Yes. She's denying who she is, don't you think? There's no proper definition of a healthy relationship, so while Dorota and Vanya may have something special, so do Blair and Chuck. Just B yourself, B. Stop pretending.
Gossip Guy: Absolutely, because as Blair said, it was just as much her fault. I don't care if Chuck was trying to trick Blair into sleeping with Jack... she said decided to go ahead with it before she even knew. Gross. The better question is, should Chuck have forgiven Blair? Either way, in order to keep the millions of Chair fans out there from revolting, I'll go with yes.
Mister Meester: Chuck's kidding himself if he thinks Blair going up there willingly absolves him of responsibility. He said it himself: He made the deal. Whether Blair ever forgives him is unclear, but as a wise man once said, proof that he is sorry will not come in the form of words, but in the form of actions, over time. Let's just hope Chuck doesn't nail 15 cocktail waitresses too.3. Shadiest character of the night: Carter, Jenny or Lily?
DANdy: Jenny is acting shadier than the apparatus that covers a lamp's light bulb.
Gossip Guy: Impressively enough, I'm going to give it to the character who never even appeared on screen: Lily Humphrey. Or is it Van Der Woodsen? Bass? Rhodes? Hochberger? Much like Rufus, we're having a tough time keeping up with this shady character.
Mister Meester: Carter should have told Serena what he knew right off the bat, and when is Jenny not asking for trouble these days? Still, I'm giving this one to Lily. She is married to Rufus. She lies constantly. There is no upside anymore.
Dorota and Vanya tie the knot.
4. Basing an episode around Dorota's wedding: Cute or boring?
DANdy: Cute! They could base an entire series around Dorota and I'd be excited. Possible titles for it: Dorota the Explorer; Vanya? I Hardly Know Ya!; and Maid in Queens.
Gossip Guy: I've been a big Dorota fan, but this is getting ridiculous. Giving a minor supporting character the primary story line? At least the writers found a way to nicely integrate Chair's story into it. Plus, any excuse to bring back Cyrus and get him so excited was okay with me. So boring, yet salvaged by a talented writing staff.
Mister Meester: I can do without some of the lines that feel like Borat quotes, but Vanya and Dorota are pretty much the cutest ever, and the episode did tie into the other characters' story lines fairly well, so it didn't feel too gimmicky to me.
5. Who would you rather see hook up, Nate and Jenny or Dan and Blair?
DANdy: I'm sorry. Can you give me a few minutes to answer? I need to go wash the vomit out of my mouth at the idea of Nate and Jenny hooking up.
Gossip Guy: Is there an option C, none of the above? I love Chair and Serenate is simply too good looking to mess with. But if you're holding me at gunpoint, I'll go with Dair. I'm not sure why, but there'd be something hot about these two frenemies getting together ... Jenny is much too young to keep being statutory raped by these older gentlemen.
Mister Meester: Jenny and Nate. Not because I think there's some great chemistry there, but because I want to see some serious $h!t go down before the end of this season. If those two characters started full-on hooking up, I think we'd be in store for that.
