Gossip Girl Round Table: "Last Tango, Then Paris"

at . Comments

Welcome to TV Fanatic's Gossip Girl Round Table, where our illustrious panel reflects on the events of the shocking third season finale, "Last Tango, Then Paris."

Below, DANdy, Gossip Guy and Mister Meester offer their take on Monday night's top lines, dubious moments, OMG twists, and what's to come next season ...


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

DANdy: Cyrus' plea to Dorota while pushing: "Not enough!!!" We needed some light-hearted Cyrus moments in an otherwise dark episode.

Gossip Guy: Definitely Dan genuinely asking if Vanessa was Serena's friend. At this point, nobody can keep up with incestuous relationships within this group.

Mister Meester: Blair laying the smackdown on Serena: "First of all, S., you didn't go to school this year and you haven't had a real job in months, so life is kind of like summer for you." LOL. Thank goodness someone else notices these things!

2. So, last night ... OMG or WTF?!

DANdy: Georgina's random return and pregnancy? WTF. Chuck bedding Jenny? OMG. Dan pining after Serena again? Eh. Chuck getting shot? OMFG. Jenny being shipped away? Sucka! So, to recap: WTFOMGEhOMFGSucka!

Gossip Guy: A little bit of both with OMFG.

Mister Meester: OMG in a good way ... mostly. The Chuck and Jenny hookup was obviously pure pain to watch, but that was the whole point. Serena and Nate's breakup was painful in a different way, in that it seemed illogical and hastened. But wow. Just wow. Talk about shocking developments - ones I didn't see coming and should open up a whole new season of stories to tell.

3. Hardest to believe: The entire cast witnessing Dorota's delivery, Blair not texting Chuck at 6:59 to say she'd be late, or no one mistaking Serena for an '80s hooker?

DANdy: The lack of a Blair text. I know all logic goes out the window when ogling a newborn, but come on. Blair texts in her sleep, pretty sure she would have dropped Chuck a "OMG, Ds h2o broke. Will b l8."

Gossip Guy: Obviously Blair was trying to be as true to the 1957 classic as possible... before there were cell phones. And Serena could actually be a '80s hooker at this point and I wouldn't be shocked. More just curious what she'd cost for tonight. Kidding. Unless she really is. Then call me. Uh I guess that leaves pretty much the most ridiculous use of a supporting character since V first got promoted to series regular. Yeah, that's right, all V insults are back on.

Mister Meester: Blair could have called or written Chuck, but chalk her lack of communication up to a flair for the dramatic. The hospital rendezvous point for the whole gang, though? I realize they sometimes need to manufacture ways to tie their separate lives together at times, but why would the Humphreys and VDWs be there for the birth of the child of the Waldorfs' hired help?

The End of J's

Gone ... but for how long?

4. Who will return to New York first, Vanessa or Jenny?

DANdy: It's a trick question! Jenny is remaining in New York! Where do you think Hudson is?!? You can't fool me, Round Table!

Gossip Guy: This may just be wishful thinking, but I'm hoping V will never return.  Therefore? J will win by default.

Mister Meester: Because there is no standing death threat in play should she return, you have to assume Vanessa. Anywhere in Florida's Palm Beach, Broward or Miami-Dade counties, on the other hand? Stay away, V. If you ever set foot there, Gossip Guy will know.

5. Is Dan really Georgina's baby daddy?

DANdy: No, Gossip Guy actually knocked her up. Sorry to out you, bro.

Gossip Guy: Well the timing definitely works, but there's no way Georgina can tell the truth about anything. I'm guessing this baby bump is faker than Julia Louis-Dreyfus' on Arrested Development.

Mister Meester: I love the utter lack of credibility that accompanies Georgina Sparks. Anything she does or says you assume is a scheme or lie. That said, it'd almost be more shocking if Dan DID put a baby in that. So yes. His boys can swim ... but how will he wriggle out?

6. Chuck obviously doesn't die (breathe, people), but given his newest obstacle, how will he and Blair cross paths next?

DANdy: In some sort of of heavenly vision Chuck has. I don't see him waking up from a coma any time soon.

Gossip Guy: Well clearly their paths will cross in Europe. With no known surviving parents and having slept with his ex-step mother's step daughter, he'll probably be short on emergency contacts. I'm guessing they'll move on to call Blair pretty quickly.

Mister Meester: Chuck will recover from his non-fatal gunshot wound and learn that Blair is in Paris. He will hunt her down and propose at the top of the Eiffel Tower. Wishful thinking? Absolutely. But don't think it won't cross his mind - or he won't at least show up.

omg!!thee most omfg episode ever!:)
im proud of Gossip Girl..
But I Always Think that if they had kept things like the book
things would have been better..but they changed alot of things around!!..like for one thing there is no Dorota,no NYU for Blair and Chuck never gets shot,they never go to Paris,Chuck hardly comes out in the book and Vanessa never was with Nate,they never played assasin for Serena's Birthday-i think it her b-day anywayzz:D and so many other things!!:)


look i was really sad about the chuck/jenny hook up, but I am kinda glad that chuck and blair are having a break. dont get me wrong, i ADORE chuck and blair and think they are the best couple on gossip girl, but i really loved them in season 2 and I think a change will be nice. and all those people who are saying that "they will not watch the next season" are being stupid. just because of a little drama??? the writers didnt "screw it up" they created a large reaction to the finale, which is obviously what they wanted!! whether you are mad or really angry about it, you guys are still discussing it, which is exactly the point and i think they achieved a really awesome finale. and though i am a big hater of jenny, at least she stirs up some drama!


nate is the one for Serena same goes for Chair... i just cant believe how much writers screwed up all characters...


i just hope that certain bitch with a name that obviously starts with J, never ever returns and so does a certain V


I'm sooo excited about season four!! I wanna know what's gonna happen next!!! And I'm crossing my fingers for Chuck and Blair! Love them!!


i seem to have forgotten: when did dan sleep with georgina??


I want chair and serenate back!!! without them this show doesn´t make any sense for me, i hate jenny soooo much and for me it´s fine if dan dies or whatever, i can´t hate him because he´s not that important, although he´s so annoying.....


actually I am almost ashame to say that I stopped watching GG since dorota's wedding, why?, because I do not like a GG without chair.
And knowing what is on the next eps, does not makes me watch the show, this is the first time I do not watch it, even when chuck compared blair with his dad's horses, or when blair got together with L.M., or the gentlemen club with ellen, or your not my wife so stop pretending, or blair being a pain in the ass in NY, whatever, I kept watching it but I really think is too much. I know I have to watch the episodes because I do like the show, but hey, I gained my addiction on victor, victrola, so I only watch because of chair, most people dont like knowing that some people just wath GG because of chuck and blair, blair and chuck, but I do and WTF chuck and jenny!!! I just hope please no dan and blair on season 4 please too much for my heart, I think I will stop watching GG until the series finale when chuck and blair are happy together :S


Glad about Serena and Nate, Serena was becoming a manipulative bitch. She became a character I don't like.
Not that blair isnt a manipulative bitch, but it works for her.
Jenny.... HATE HER. She ruins everything. and its not like chuck raped her. she made the decision. We expect chuck to fuck anything that walks when blair dumps him. its a part of his character.
Jenny has gone way too far to be redeemed in my book.
I may hate Vanessa because shes sooo boring, but I hate Jenny more because she screws EVERYTHING up.
Dan and Serena deserve each other. They are both impulsive (dan punching chuck) and dont think before they act.


What about Eric and his new hottie, Elliot? Is romance bloomining into season 4?
