Gossip Girl Round Table: "Belles Du Jour"

at . Comments

Welcome back to TV Fanatic's Gossip Girl Round Table, where our illustrious panel reflects on the events of the fourth season premiere, "Belles Du Jour."

Below, Gossip Guy and Mister Meester offer their take on Monday's quotes, twists, and burning questions. Our fearless leader, DANdy, will return next week.


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

Gossip Guy: We all know this goes against everything I stand for, but I have to give it to V for all her witty Georgina lines, but the best one was "you can't trust anything that comes out of her mouth, let alone anywhere else." Hehe, she was referring to her Geor-gina there.

Mister Meester: Any exchange between Dan and Vanessa, or this gem from Serena: "I wouldn't worry about Chuck ... any normal summer he's drunk on some island where polygamy is legal. Given everything that happened it makes sense he's gone rogue."

2. Was this the best season premiere of the four?

Gossip Guy: While the Paris opening was way better than season three, I still have to give it up to season two in the Hamptons. Those were the days.

Mister Meester: Aside from the pilot episode that got us hooked three years ago, I'd say yes. The music, the montages, the city (both of them) ... Blair in her element and the rebirth (in a sense) of Chick ... The return of Georgina, the introduction of Juliet and some seriously scandalous new stories ... I think it's safe to say Gossip Girl is back, baby!

3. Is the baby Dan's, and what the heck is Georgina up to?

Gossip Guy: Definitely not. And the day I figure out what Georgina is up to, I'll have figured out the world. I'll let you guys all know the meaning of life then too.

Mister Meester: No way Milo Dan's son, but a couple of things don't add up here. 1. Why would an ambivalent Dan be going along with this? 2. If Georgina's not after money - it's Dan! - what's her motivation then? Is she on the run from a Belorussian mobster whose son Milo really is and looking for a safe haven in Brooklyn? I'm kidding ... mostly.

Oh Yeah, There's V

Vanessa earned some rare props from Gossip Guy this week.

4. What will happen when Chuck and Blair reunite?

Gossip Guy: I just don't feel like Hair is going to be a power couple until Chuck becomes himself again. You see what I did there? I'm so witty with couple names. Right Ballison?

Mister Meester: Because I've seen the episode, and am under threat of the CW not to reveal too much, I'll leave you with this: The scene is awesome, plain and simple. Ed Westwick and Leighton Meester are magic together. Blair tries to tell Chuck not to run from who he is, and while their future remains up in the air, her words clearly resonate with him.

5. Is Juliet Gossip Girl?!

Gossip Guy: This show has thrown us Gossip Girl red herrings before, but at least this time it's a girl. All the creepy clippings on the board? The blast being sent from the website? Everything's adding up except for the fact she doesn't look or sound like Kristen Bell. Those commercials for You Again featuring Bell during the episode didn't help sell Juliet either.

Mister Meester: I don't think so, but the two many be in cahoots. That scene were they revealed her at the computer was pretty cool, though. Talk about an intriguing lead-in to next week! As we will see next week (Gossip Girl spoiler alert), she's got a plan that involves trying to help Nate get Serena back. Although Juliet's motives and Nate's are quite different.

1. "my fairy godmother is my credit card" - Blair and "Cinderella doesn't google her prince charming" - Serena 2. I prefer season 2...mainly bcoz of the plenty of Chair hot scenes! 3. nope! thought I kinda wish he is, and Dan would marry Georgina, and make Vanessa out of the show 4. it will be one of the best scenes on TV and I'm sure I'm gonna be replaying that over and over again...even maybe 10 years from now :) 5. I hope not!!! cos I want GG to be someone who we've known all along....someone inside the circle & unpredictable...not some guest star who suddenly appeared out of nowhere!


@ margie96
there were also pictures of Blaur and Chuck at last years club opening, eighties theme and all. If she is a stalker she's stalking on ALL of them.
It's the best justification I can find of Chuck ever kissing anyone besides a random skank and Blair so yes I agree. That has to be why he kissed her- he's alienated everybody and he's afraid no one is ever going to love him again. He also very much was the kid that just wanted love. Haha about getting us to *like* V. As if!
1. My favorite quote was Dan's- don't even Say *exhausted*
when he was talking to Nate because his expression was just so subtly and momentarily frustrated and scary so suddenly it was barely noticable. Great acting from lonelyboy! And I loved Serena's "we make our own fairytales-" wait is she acting
again? She hasn't done that since- since- never mind.
2. The best premier was by far the first- *nothing* can beat Chuck in his scarf at the back of limo drinking and Blair and Nate laughing with him and Serena and Chuck's struggle and Blair's meltdown with Nate- etc etc. Also a time when Vanessa didn't exist and Jenny wasn't a racoon.
3. That would be too obvious- so who knows.
4. When Chair reunite Chuck will forget Eva ever existed- look at Blair as though he wants to make out with her there and then and Blair will say something sarcastic about his horribly bland clothes and he'll say something witty albiet softly in reply and she'll look like she wants to make out to but won't and one of them will walk away while the other looks on longingly. In one word: magic. Of course.
5. Ya know I think she just might be GG because it's so random for done stalker to be keeping tabs on These specific teenagers- what are the odds? Or maybe she's someone who *works* for GG. That would explosn everything.
And of course GG *is* a crazy stalker. I mean devoting your whole life morning noon and night, twenty four seven for the past seven years to making a bunch of rich Tweens more famous then Julia Roberts? Essentially, she has to be a little unbalanced and Katie Cassidy just might be the deal.
Of course that also means the series might be....gasp....nearing it's close.....


@margie96 On the board there was photos of Nate and Jenny too, for example, the fashion show where Nate kiss Jenny and all goes public... I think it was the episode "There's Might Be Blood"... So i think is all about Nate, or at least Serena, Nate and Jenny...




HoHan is nothing more than A WHORE SKANK who…opps ! Wrong post !


1. I agree with Gossip Guy's comment, especially the quote about believing anything that came out out Georgina's "Geor-gina". 2. I agree with Gossip Guy again. I think we got more of a feel for the Hamptons of Season 2 than we got a feel for Paris here. 3. No! Dan and Rufus are IDIOTS to believe the results of a Paternity Test that was done without Dan's knowledge or consent! How is that even possible?! Usually there is a third party that collects the samples (blood or swabs of the inside of the cheek) from the participants. 4. Blair will fall for the "New" Chuck just in time for him to revert back to his old ways and break her heart all over again. Can we say Season 4 finale? 5. She's definately a Pauper/Stalker and that would fit in with being 'Gossip Girl' motivation-wise. Bonus Question: Did Elenor & Cyrus really adopt a baby or was the baby (in the background of the phone message) actually Dorota & Vanya's?


1. I love all the quotes, especially Blair "my fairy godmother is my credit card"
2. I loved all the season premiers! I loved this one. The transition from Paris to New York.
3. Its not Dan's baby. But I'm thinking Rufus and Lily may adopt him.
4. Anything with Chuck and Blair is EPIC! I agree with some one ealier; Chuck and Blair FOREVER, just not right now.
5. She's not GOSSIP GIRL, just some crazy psycho that wants to be apart the non judging breakfast club!


1. Have to agree w/Gossip Guy on this one
2. Hell no! S1 was epic and the most true to form (book) that Gossip Girl has ever been. S2 was also pretty good. Then S4. I'm not going to lie and even act like I watched the S3 premiere.
3. If the baby was Dan's, then Georgina wouldn't have to falsify the results- duh. Idk what she's up to, but she can't just leave her spawn w/Dan.
4. I don't know and honestly don't care @ this point. They bore me.
5. No, but she is a crazy stalker. idk if she's more obsessed with Nate or Serena.




FYI, when Georgina was speaking Russian, she said "I'll take care of it." And her accent was terrible.

Gossip Girl Season 4 Episode 1 Quotes

Serena: So what does it say about Chuck?
Blair: I couldn't be less interested. Serena gives her a look. No new posts. He's been MIA since he left town this spring.
Serena: What does it say about us?
Blair: "Ooh la la! Paris is burning and Serena and Blair lit the match." Of course your flame is hotter than mine. Everyone knows that the only guy who's been in my pants all summer is the tailor at Pierre Balmain.
Serena: And whose fault is that? B, just as many guys have flirted with you. I just happen to have a thing for French waiters.
Blair: And bartenders. And museum docents. Anyone on a Vespa or bicycle. Or wearing Zadig & Voltaire.

Serena: Blair what are you doing? We said we wouldn't check Gossip Girl all summer.
Blair: Summer's almost over.
