Gossip Girl Round Table: "Panic Roommate"

by 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 topics from "Panic Roommate" ...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

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

Gossip Guy: Blair telling Nate he better not be selfish [in bed]. But the real question should be: why is everyone not submitting theirs via TV Fanatic's new quote submission tool? I heard a certain programmer spent a lot of time on that...

Mister Meester: "Nate can't wait to see you. Trust me, it's like riding a very cute bike." - B.

DANdy: Blair wanted Epperly to get laid... not laid OFF. Oh, B, you use such witty word play.

2. Harder to believe: Blair's instant rise to W management, Dan's involvement in Damien's scheme, or Juliet's kidnapping/drugging of Serena barely fazing people?

Gossip Guy: There's no way the same magazine that tricked Kim Kardashian into posing nude is dumb enough to promote an intern who's still in school to a full time management position. The latter two are just staples of Gossip Girl at this point.

Mister Meester: Dan was very un-Dan in going along with that, but Ben's connection to shady Juliet and his role in helping plan all her schemes is being totally glossed over. Side note: My fellow Round Table panelists love their celebrity gossip.

DANdy: Blair's rise at W. Based on the attention that magazine got from Kim Kardashian naked, it's clearly in good hands. Hard to imagine it would follow such a risky strategy.

3. Better chemistry: Serena and Ben or Chuck and Raina?

Gossip Guy: Is there a third option for none of the above? These lame excuses for couples hooking up can't touch the chemistry of a cell phone call between Chuck and Blalr.

Mister Meester: Serena and Ben. At least there was a connection there a few years ago, and we're beginning to see signs in the present as well, even if he rarely emotes.

DANdy: Chuck and Raina. Ben is an English teacher, not a science teacher. Pay attention.

CHAINA: The chemistry just isn't there ... or is it?

4. Is Damien gone for good?

Gossip Guy: Nope.  All ill-conceived, short-lived schemes need a good-looking drug dealer. And now without a trust fund? Kid's really gonna step up his game.

Mister Meester: I hope not. There's a lot of potential for Damien to be a classic GG villain, or maybe even redeem himself. This story arc seemed beneath him a bit.

DANdy: No, there's a reason he has the same name as the snake owned by former WWE star Jake "The Snake" Roberts. This guy slithers in when you least expect it.

5: Rate last night from 1-10 on the Rufus Uselessness Scale.

Gossip Guy: 10. You know what said it all? The man known for his exquisite breakfast spreads was eating cereal. Someone put this guy on suicide watch.

Mister Meester: 6, if only because he did appear and have a speaking part in this episode, while not in Lily's lap once. That has to count for something.

DANdy: 9. The only way he would have been more useless was if his name was Vanessa.

so i was reading the Quotes at Serena tells Ben that she doesn't let things go that easily. I have to say having her say that line and have her let go of what Ben and Juliet did to her is a little to much. Come on if someone really did that and then they (the person doing it) found out it was really someone else who they should be going after, i know i wouldn't have forgiven or forgotten it. but then again its not real life it Gossip Girl.

I know Blair getting promoted so soon is nearly impossible. But let's not forget, she is capable of handling that position. I guess Epperly has a little more faith in her than the rest of us?

Ben and serena makes me sick! And I'm so sure juliet and he are up to no good. Its gonna end badly. And when will Serena understand that those 'little risks' that she's always willing to take just screws her over every time?!
Dan and Blair are really adorable and its something different. Can't wait to see the two of them next episode!
Nate needs to do a little more than play pool in his suite. And hey where is senior Archibald?
Raina and chuck is not fun but I like Raina's character. PS- BEN NEEDS TO LEAVE! ASAP.

Is it just me, or is the make out scene between Chuck and Raina really awkward? Well, I feel awkward watching it. It just doesnt feel like it. :/

Well, the central problem here, is that the writers are putting NO chemistry couples together.... I mean Chuck and Raina or Serena and Ben.....AWFUL........ Please we need some DRAMA....

^ ultimate win comment. I know GG isn't known for its sparkling social messages but come on. Serena is such a bitch to her little brother. The one she claimed she cared so much about right at the beginning. Seems it was only cos she didn't have a guy on the horizon. What a ho.

Either switch that thing off or bring it to bed. Vibration is a terrible thing to waste.
