The Weekly Gossip Girl Reality Index 11/30/2010

by at . Comments

Last night's Gossip Girl, "Gaslit," was the kind of dark holiday episode we've come to expect, as our official review notes, setting the stage for the midseason finale.

It's time for one of our favorite pieces of Gossip Girl media coverage, N.Y. Magazine's traditional reality index. Excerpts from their take on Monday night's episode:

Dorota's Back!
  • Dorota on B's predicament: “With everything that’s happened with Mr. Chuck and Miss Serena, I also know you want to get out of the Dodge!” Plus 2.
  • Nate can’t wait until the lawyer is two feet away to open the (strangely unsealed) divorce papers being delivered to his mom. Plus 2.
  • Baby Anna! Plus 10.
  • Serena fails to recognize someone else posing as her OWN SELF in a photo. COME ON. Minus only 50, for the slim possibility that this is an inside meta joke about how all blond teenagers on the CW are interchangeable.
  • "Blair," Chuck gasps in fear as he spots Jenny on the landing above them at the hospital, and then they watch in tense silence as J walks by in a slow and weird manner, as if she is a zombie from The Walking Dead. Plus 3.
  • While everyone else on the show is a better schemer than Dan, it sort of makes sense that he’s the only one to suspect foul play. If there’s one thing he trusts more than all reality or facts, it’s the two orbs of trust just below Serena's face and above her bedazzled cummerbund. Plus 4.
  • Wait, Ben turns on Juliet for drugging Serena after plotting his revenge for years, forcing Juliet to give up everything, and beating the sh!t out of a random fellow prisoner? Minus 4. Also, since when was his hair so cute?
  • The doctor did a really good job of saying, "I hear you've had a good experience at the Ostroff Center," to Lily in a tone that conveyed, "I understand not just one but both of your children are fucked up, and while it is unquestionably your fault for bringing them up in the heart of such a shallow, immoral environment, you clearly did not know any better and thus I mostly pity you." Plus 5.

Hahahahaha I was on the floor laughing when chuck gasped and Jenny awkwardly walked by like a zombie. I'm so glad you guys mentioned this I was scared I was the only one to notice.

I knew I was not oging to like this episode purely because I thought there will be a lacking of Chair scenes and storylines. Indeed I was right.
This was not one of my favorite. Yes it had a lot of drama so Gossip Girl did its job. However, there was of lot of stuff happening I did not care for.
I have to applaud Juliet because the original plan was over yet she still managed to talk herself out of it and continue on to ruin Serena. So all of a sudden Ben has morals? Seriously what is his deal. The writers has got to clear his character up. And why is his hair to perfectly combed while he's in jail?
Nate and his family was pointless. I like the fact that he was being a good son and I do feel bad that in the end he was lied to.
Dan and Serena!!! Ugh!!!!! These two bothered me so much in season 1 and 2 and now they are back. Noooooooo!!!! Lily was right Dan had no right to bug into their relationship no matter how good his intentions were. I hate his character so much because he acts all good and have good morals yet he is so judgmental.
I wish Harold and Roman were in New York. Despite the drama, I wanted some good humor and actually good family time. I wishes Eleanor and Cyrus were in it too. I hate how this entire episode was base off of the Van der Woodsen and Blair was just hanging around. A Waldorf's Thanksgiving is so much better.
Chuck! What is wrong with you? I have nothing left to say because he is pissing me off. He is always pushing Blair away. And thanks to him, Blair is now working with Dan
Okay I really hope nothing eill transpire between Blair and Dan. But since this is Gossip Girl, it won't surprise me if they do hook up. I know it will in no way compare to what Chair have, but I still don't want ti to happen. Dan is just...so gross.

i love the reality index
although you forgot to mention the fact that everybody wore burberry coats in this episode which would be like a minus 10 as much as I love the burbs...

How about: Where the hell were the cops?! In my state, when you dial 911 the cops are the first people to arrive on the scene followed by an ambulance if necessary. They make that call! Serena dials 911 and only the ambulance with paramedics show up and NOBODY - not the paramedics, not the hospital, not her family, not even Serena herself - calls the cops about suspected foul play!

^ this deserves a 100 plus points to the one who wrote this statement. only proves how much of a sissy Chuck Bass really is. "I understand not just one but both of your children are fucked up, and while it is unquestionably your fault for bringing them up in the heart of such a shallow, immoral environment, you clearly did not know any better and thus I mostly pity you." ^and this right here made me laugh... so so so true.

Gossip Girl Quotes

And who am I? That's one secret I'll never tell ... You know you love me. XOXO, Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl

[to Jenny] That's the thing. You need to be cool to be queen. Anne Boleyn thought only with her heart and she got her head chopped off. So her daughter Elizabeth made a vow never to marry a man. She married a country. Forget boys. Keep your eye on the prize, Jenny Humphrey. You can't make people love you, but you can make them fear you. For what it's worth, you're my Queen. I choose you.
