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

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.

I completely agree with pty!
Dair is a ridiculous idea, it is like insest. It is seriously a very bad idea. Unless it is completely about friendship and it makes Chuck man up and get Blair back and makes Blair un-realise that Chuck is perfect for her and brings out the best in her


Gossip Guy, you think Blair is in the wrong here primarily? Uh, even after she turned down Jack, Chuck TOLD JACK how to manipulate her, she told Chuck they would find another way...then he tries to act like he wasn't involved and blames her? Wow. I used to really have respect for you and the round table, but seriously, that's all gone now. VILE attitude and sexist to boot.


Dan and Blair could work. They have great screen chemistry too (the other pair being Chuck and Blair, of course). Dan is decent, just what Blair needs. Blair can open up Dan's stick-in-the-mud world. They'd be good balance for each other. Besides, it'd be really, really entertaining to see a jealous Chuck try to take down Daniel Humprey.

I'm sorry you guys but I'm warming up to the idea of DAIR,
I know it seems totally off but there is something about Blair's loyalty and Dan's loyalty and Dan being such a 'goody goody' that i feel would bring out the best in Blair.
I agree with REL, Blair needs someone to make her feel safe and good, it seems like thats what she's been searching for this whole time.
As she said, she wants pure and simple love, better boring than to be ashamed of yourself.
Maybe Dan is this person for her.
Also, remember Dan/Serena won't happen so easily, as their parents are now married and they share a sibling. So, even if Rufus and Lily divorce/separate bc of what Lily's doing, they would still have a brother in common.
Just some thoughts..


what Courtney said !


Bring on the Dan and Blair.


both dair and nenny would make me puke! I don't get how jenny could do this to serena, who was aways so nice to her!! I don't think blair should forgive chuck so easily..i think she should have a guy who makes her happy, a new one but maybe she should be alone for some time first..I would stand a dair one night totally drunken stand just so chuck can taste his own poison! ps: wasn't lilly with s's father because of cece's cancer?? then why did cece tell rufus she wasn't with her and why was she in his apartment?? good luck explaining that writers!


Jenny/Nate. Nate is always saving her and if he didn't like her at all, he wouldn't bother. Besides, Dair makes me want to puke up my lunch like Blair will if he kisses her. Dan and Blair just aren't meant to be. The writers have pretty much TOLD us that Chair is endgame. At heart, I ship Chair, Derena, Jenny/Nate (Nenny?), and I guess since all's left is Vanessa, they can bring Scott back for her. That's just my personal opinion. Serenate is just a little too. . . boring to survive on a teen drama. Sorry :(

I am xoxo

gossipGUY...HALOOOOO!!!! blair is d 1 who is wrong doing? chuck should forgive blair??? fuck up...he just try to convince blair that it is also her fault so that she think that it is her fault too ok! blair do it for chuck.for god sake what wrong wif u guys?


Ok, now I can comment something. I´m sorry, but I cannot support Dair as couple. As friends is ok, but not as couple. Let´s face it, the couple Chuck and Blair are the sacred cow on this show, it would be like messing with them more than they have done, and it would also be like messing with possibly the second sacred cow of the show, which is Dan and Serena, because the producers may have forgotten this/not given too much importance, but in many shows, the first couple that appears is the original, Main couple that people want to see at the end (Ross and Rachel in Friends, Eric and Donna in That 70's show, Doug and Carol in E.R., even Ryan and Marissa in The O.C.) and many people still want them together. People are willing to tolerate Serenate because it comes from the books and it was unresolved after the pilot, but go the extreme of Dair? What is this, tic for tac? Because Serena had Nate when he was still Blair´s boyfriend and now she dates him now Blair has to have Serena's ex so they can be even? As for other reason that people argue when they defend the idea of Dair, like Dan and Blair's chemestry for example, they can have that without going to the extreme of dating.
