Gossip Girl Round Table: "The Unblairable Lightness of Being"

by at . Comments

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

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.

CW has a new promo up--a long one--I saw it on People's site. It's called something like 'should chuck and blair be together?' No sign of DAIR, thankfully. All the signs of Blair trying to make Chuck jealous and--maybe--falling for the guy who offers his service to help her with that task. There's also something to do with the Empire State Building but it's not made clear. It sounds like it involves some kind of invitation/ultimatum from Chuck, though.

1. Chuck: "I may be heartless but you´re naive", I don´t think he´s heartless btw.
2. I think she made the right desition but i love love love chair so Im not happy about it. I just hope that Chuck will fight to win her back and earn her forgivness.
3.I think that Jenny is a complete slut but I will have to go with Lily. She is just so cold and stupid. I mean she and Rufus have not been married for even a year and she´s already cheating. What a cold monster. Chuck once called her a whore and can´t do nothing but agree with him.
4. Cute, i love Dorota.
5. None of them. Nate and Jenny is just a disgusting thought and Dair, seriously if they got together they might as well close the whole show. It´s not in Blairs character to fall in love with Dan. Am I the only one who wants Derena back!?

Has anyone noticed how much Blair and Dorota look alike? Especially the part where Dorota in her wedding gown with the curls and make up. Just something I noticed and decided to share. =)

When I watched that I tweeted at Josh Schwartz asking him how much Microsoft were paying him. Lord.

ive been a chair fan since season 1...but their charachters are so demented lately (in the bad way) that i just want blair to be her old self and same for chuck. which means blair should move on to a new love interest. its pretty sad that most ppl would rather see her alone or with only chuck. shes much to pretty to not be hit on by dozens; its the fact that anyone the blair gets involved with will always be a boyfriend and not just a hookup (with the exception of carter baizen--since blair wasnt techniquely sane lol). i would really enjoy seeing some more dan/blair--it doesnt have to be romantic--these two have something, and its great to watch!!

1) Best Quote, Blair to Dan: Your ice is melting. 2) I think you're missing the point: the question is not whether Blair forgives Chuck for whoring her out. As she told him so boldly, she would have done anything he asked. The issue is that she doesn't LIKE this about herself--that she's so obsessed with Chuck that she's lost sight of her former sense of self! His crimes are failing to trust her, and not caring how far down they fall into the amoral muck. She's not happy with Blair anymore, and that's unforgivable! 3) Shady? Yes, it's Lily. She's married. Jenny is just a dumb kid. 4) Cute Dorota wedding, though some bad writing going on there. They're not from another planet, writers. 5) Give me DAIR all the way, baby! I am SO excited about that one. They have similar coloring and just look completely hot together. They're both self-centered achievers, and frankly this is the Old Blair who needs to come back. Maybe Dan is going to bring that out in her again. Their mutual dislike has always been covered in an obvious layer of suppressed attraction. They enjoy provoking one another a little bit, and they've had a lot of genuinely sweet, friendly scenes together. Let's not forget Dan's role in the big "I love you" game of 2x09 or thereabouts (2x10?), where he talked Blair out of saying it to Chuck, and then talked Chuck into being okay with that! I don't care whether they're end game--they would definitely NOT be boring. Sparks would fly everywhere, they'd be like two cats thrown into a box together, and I love it. Chuck will be angry-jealous if Blair is with someone else, but he'll be horribly insecure-angry-jealous if she's with Dan. This is the one person he doesn't know how to handle, and constantly over-reacts against. He's SCARED of Dan, truth be told. He'll have a total meltdown if Blair dates him.

When the ship gets rough, people start jumping. I prefer to hold on for the ride. I think CB will work this all out in the end. I am proud of Blair for recognizing the problems, and admitting her actions as well. Chuck manipulated her and I dont believe she would have went there without his actions helping her along. However, I wont abandon this ship. I have been on board since the first episode and I will be there for the last. Have faith people!

Dan and Blair? Don't be REVOLTING.

1. Ummm anything Chuck and Blair say to each other is always my favorite quote.
2. I think she should have, but not so soon. Chuck should have worked harder, but i dont think he has fully realized what Blair is mad about.
3. Um well Carter and Jenny are just shady characters in general but last night Jenny really wasnt all that shady. Carter was, but I think Lily was definately the shadiest no wonder she has been married about a zillion times she cant commit to one person longer than three days.
4. Well it definately wasnt boring given all the drama that went around it, so CUTE.
5. Definately Nate and Jenny. I cannot even stand the thought of Blair with anyone but Chuck, and right now i dont even think they should be together.
