Gossip Girl Round Table: "It-Girl Happened One Night"

at . Comments

Welcome back to the weekly TVF Gossip Girl Round Table, where our panel breaks down the previous night's episode (see our review from earlier this morning).

Below, lead Gossip Girl writer Mister Meester joins esteemed editor-in-chief DANdy and TV Fanatic CEO Gossip Guy to discuss "It-Girl Happened One Night" ...


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

Gossip Guy: I'll give an honorary and rare gift to the Captain after the poor guy lost his job with, "Wall Street didn't need a sequel. In theaters, or in my life." Long live Gordon Gecko's legacy.

Mister Meester: I loved Dan asking what Blair did to Epperly, with a hint of concern that B had her whacked, and her response, which didn't dispel that notion. I also liked this one from Gossip Girl: "Roses are red, hydrangeas are blue. Chuck's given his heart away ... But guess what, Blair? Not to you." Seriously? What does that even mean? Kristen Bell is phoning it in these days.

DANdy: Blair: [to Serena] "It's okay to date below the line. Madonna and Julia Roberts paved the way for girls like you." Burn.

2. Harder to believe, felon edition: Nate's dad stealing those passwords, or Ben assuming Serena would think less of his catering gig when she dated a guy with that same gig, and after Ben just got out of PRISON?

Gossip Guy: Oh this is even more fun than the Felon edition of Trivial Pursuit! Going forward, I'm giving the entire Ben storyline the "harder to believe" title every week.

Mister Meester: The Captain. Thorpe would change the passwords instantly, and would just nix his access electronically rather than requiring the physical card (which he'd probably notice the name of a gym on). Unless this is just a plan to trap Chuck trying to hack the system. Damn, Russell. Always a step ahead. Begrudging respect.

DANdy: Ben. Serena dated a guy from Brooklyn, remember. Brooklyn.

3. Which character would you most like to see a W magazine feature on?

Gossip Guy: Vanessa. Hah! Got you. No, seriously, I would have totally gone for that Serena one. Maybe a nude photo shoot in the vein of Kim? Yum.

Mister Meester: Blair! All I could think of while she helped coordinate the "It-Girl" feature was that the best candidate was working right there at W.

DANdy: Jenny. Wonder what she's been up to in Hudson.

B the W Intern

IT GIRL: How come W didn't just suggest Blair?

4. Rate this week from 1-10 on the Rufus Uselessness Scale.

Gossip Guy: Wait, Rufus was in this episode? I thought that was just a really big purse on Lily's arm. 10.

Mister Meester: 9. His role was basically one scene in a sweater at breakfast with minimal dialogue. That's tough to top, even for the new Vanessa.

DANdy: 8. He's one spinoff pilot and ascot away from becoming a founding member of the cast of The Real House Husbands of the Upper East Side.

5: Will Dan and Blair hook up next week?

Gossip Guy: Maybe not next week, but I have a feeling it's happening. I don't want to give away too much, but we obtained this exclusive photo.

Mister Meester: Not so sure about next week. Blair has too much going on, if you haven't noticed. I feel a Dair cliffhanger coming February 28.

DANdy: I see what you're doing, Round Table question writer. But I don't have any spoilers of my own, so just click on my colleagues' links.

6: What is Damien's plan?

Gossip Guy: Hopefully wear more skull caps. It was a good look for the man.

Mister Meester: He's upset that his dad's got him under a microscope, right? That can only mean revenge against Ben, the reason for that scrutiny.

DANdy: Probably unlimited calling, text messaging and data on his iPhone. The man lives on his phone dealing drugs for a living. It makes sense.

Dear writers, producers, etc: I have loyally shipped Chair to the point of obsession up until I saw It-Girl Happened One Night.I realized that Blair deserved better--Dan. That scene was pretty much Oscar worthy (the one with Blair and Dan hiding). I think that Chuck is a jackass; he was willing to sacrifice his business for his "sacred" Raina, yet he was willing to sacrifice Blair for his business. Blair and Dan are soulmates. I like how they hated each other but grew to be friends. This is how real life is. Please make Dair endgame. And make Chuck a miserable old miser (or dead).


I noted Taylor momsen is still listed as starring, yet she's been gone for so long, I almost, kind of miss her a little. What's with that? Oh right, Nate NEEDS to hook up with someone already. He's too pretty not to be on screen!!!


DANDY YOU ARE WIN! DANdy: Probably unlimited calling, text messaging and data on his iPhone. The man lives on his phone dealing drugs for a living. It makes sense.


Again, what about the "Nate" uselessness scale? What useful thing have they done with him this season? As for Ben, I say they expunge his record and send Lilly to jail. It would be funny to see Lilly in a "camp cupcake" type place. Maybe they can even get Martha Stewart to guest star.


I think Dair will hook up next week while someone wasn't sleeping. (Serena maybe?) Bring Jenny back!


I'm happy Riana dumped Chuck's ass!! That girl knew he was bad news and didn't get suckered in to his pity party excuse!! I actually like Riana!! She is a human and has common sense!!


I am finding a new interest in gossip girl lately esp after last seasons stupidity... I liked the qoute by Gossip Girl herself... It was hillarious... altho Raina and Chuck have no chemistry... I hate the Captain and I hope that he just fades away... he is more useless than Rufus to me. Rufus needs another storyline... Maybe their son needs to comeback into the picture... Serena is irritating me once again, what is she doing with Ben? He clearly has issues and needs to sort through them. I think they need to break up already and she needs to get on with her life. And for once make some correct decisions...


"Roses are red, hydrangeas are blue. Chuck's given his heart away ... But guess what, Blair? Not to you." It means that Raina is the red rose (her dress) and Blair is obviously hydrangeas *remembering season 1*


I agree the writing for Kristen Bell has gotten crappy & with WAY to many puns.


Damian´s plan is simple just make Eric the dealer for time to time
