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.

serena are you STUPID? otherwise i can´t get you, i´m gonna need to remind you that when you were with dan he couldn´t handle what´s been in your history and he was always judging you, why in the world did you dare to break up with the only guy who has loved you your entire life no matter what????????? but go ahead go back with the loser boy, but i really hope you realize what you lost... and can anyone tell me if chuck is actually death cause if he is, i have no reason to keep watching this show(unless the 2 humphry´s left died or go away just like little bitch did)


are you freakin kidding me? mr irrelevant and serena AGAIN? the only way i can stand serena is with nate and now this??? the only reason nate and serena became boring is because she became into a total BITCH!!!!!!!! but seriosly it´s her turn to fight 4 him, nate´s always been there 4 her and now turns out she wants to be either alone or with humphry WTF?? OMG i hate serena so much right now but still think she should be with nate, chuck must come back(or i´m gonna kill my self) what´s wrong with you writers?? the only thing left is you telling us that chuck really died and now the show is gonna be about S & B trying to get dan´s love....


Finale episode was OMG!! Chuck and Jenny hook up WTF, but he thought that his relationship with Blair was definitely over, heartbreak, so he did something (really) stupid. After a break up, People cry, Chuck Bass have sex.
Jenny realized what she had messed up during this season she felt miserable and lost her in Chuck's bed. Vanessa you can stay where you are, we don't need you, miss you or want to hear about you! Blair not texting kind of unbelievable. Can you explain to me why everybody knows that Dorota is in labor except Chuck, I know he doesn't have much interest in Dorota's life but there were all there... Serena oh dear Serena, I'm so happy she let Nate go away!! How much have him wait for her? And when the time is right, she lie, she hide,she doesn't trust him, come with such bad reasons for, and the best she kiss Dan Humphrey!! She doesn't deserve Nate Archibald Dan, poor Lonely Daddy, he's not the father but I'm sure he'll believe it next fall. Chuck Dead? Please don't joke with us, maybe lost his memory, or pursue the gangsters who stole him, where did they shot him? In the back? Why not in a wheelchair?


I thought the episode was perfect. I used to idolize Chuck Bass but after what he did to Jenny i'm glad he got shot.(But I don't want him dead) Blair made me mad when she was threatening Jenny. What a bitch. The episode was in my opinion one of the best Gossip Girl episodes to date.


Chuck and Jenny each had their own reasons for hooking up in that way. It was consensual. Jenny just prob didnt count on all the mixed feelings that can come after THAT decision. Chuck wasnt nasty to her, he had his own agenda at the time but he wasnt all love and warmth either at a time when Jenny would have needed that. I get why it happened. I get that Chuck was neither her nor there about it and Jenny found it a big deal.
As for everyone being at the birth - why not? What else do they all have to do with their time?!?


Do you think this is the show that auesiello (ew) hinted with do a fast forward? Do you think they'll pull the amnesia card?




I agree with Marcela. Why Chuck has to be the villan and not another jenny's victim I totally hate her!! I hope she never comes back, Vanessa well whatever.


okaii just for the record this episode was amazing x No some of the mini details wernt perfect but his made me laugh cry depressed excited just like the old times in season 1 x i used to love jenny but she has been a total bitch lately im like eric hate her but deep down love her x jenny didnt want to hurt chuck or blair she blew out the candle so blair couldnt see her and she got rid of any evidence she was there x she has realised how she has hurt most people around her x i literally poured mt eyes out at this episode i am still crying as i write this x when is it back on? not september i hope i cannot wait that long!!!!!!! i just finished watching this episode and i am gonna go watch it again on sky plus :') x x x x and people shouldnt get so angry i do love gossip girl with all my heart but it is only a tv show x and p.s i am glad n and s broke up s and d forever!!! g cant be preggers dan sisnt even have sex with her????!!!! x x x x


I don't get the drama, J asked for it and Chuck delivered,
why does she get all upset and hurt afterwards and why does stupid Rufus (make up your mind! people like that should not be allowed to have children, one minute he talks this and the next minute the opposite! he is so immature and confused)
and stupid Dan jump in ? And why does B pretend to be that angel
and so hurt ? If she is too stupid to text Chuck...she should have known him better and just accepted it.
I know it is all part of the story, but still...
