I'm the only one not excited for his book? Nate is WAY too okay with being portrayed as gay. The writers were too scared of being labeled as homophobic, they didn't think about the actual character's reaction. A college boy does not want to hear his best friend made him gay in his now published book. Not only is it damned creepy, but Dan is saying Nate HAS the potential to be gay. Perhaps Nate being with all these women is him actually being gay? Huh. I'm reading way into this... he also said that he and Blair had sex! She's an engaged pregnant woman: might want to keep those fantasies to yourself.
Ivy, Ivy, Ivy. How she has become a series regular? I don't know. Perhaps a GUEST STAR, like Georgina, but regular? I hope I'm making a mistake with this. I know she's got this blackmail thing going on but how long can she keep it up?
I love Blair! She has taken over. Serena has NO storyline besides her "working" thing. I want to see how this pregnancy storyline plays out, seeing as I originally hated it, and I still kind of do.
Title: "The Baby Jewels of Fan Denial?"
Mystery Revealed: Louis is the FATHER!
Or is he?
Okay, so I have lost count on the number of fans that honestly believe that Louis is NOT the father of the baby. Unfortunately, this includes me too. Not due to a sense of denial in the title but a common sense of preface of story telling. Logic tells us that: Louis is not a main cast member and won't be on forever, Blair placed the envelope in the draw (said time and time again) to hide "The Truth," from Louis, Blair showed a 1 second regret after telling Chuck "The Truth," and the premise of episode being in "denial."
Evidence to the contrary? Blair has a great poker face and so we have no idea other than the motivation that she thinks Chuck is too immature to become a dad as reasoning for lying to Chuck.
As a necessity of story telling, it was natural for Blair to not inform Chuck as we are only 3 episodes into the season and not the final 3 episodes of the season. Louis is needed as a plot tool to prevent any future Chair scenes; plain and simple.
Blair Kelly: Future Queen of Monaco The Biography:
Perhaps the analogy had more to do with "Falling from Grace," rather than the unfortunate stroke of Grace Kelly from a car accident; Serena has already done the whole crash scene anyways. Starting a family seems to wearing thin on Blair's actions this week despite Dan stating "You still have me," apparently equating to purgatory or no support at all. So it seems that every action she is taking means to keep protecting herself from harm (natural selection at work)
Charlie and The Envy Factory:
So it seems we have come full circle. At first thought, we all assumed that "Charlie" was bipolar and needed to be rehabilitated. Now it seems that she is developing a Narcissistic Personality Disorder and wants the high life that Serena has offered. How ironic. But what type of sane person says "Everything here sparkles..." with a pure imagination?
As for "Carl," (Ivy's ex-boyfriend) I am suspecting that he will come to the UES to "stalk" Charlie after finding her in a newspaper or Spectator magazine. The Noble Nate will be there to protect the Charlie from this new fiend (who doesn't look like he would hurt a fly).
Muppet Dan or the Classless Klingon?: "Standing on your on two feet," by Vanessa Abraham
Unfortunately, the problem with a Muppet that stands on his two feet is that it is still attached to the strings of the puppeteer and is only standing because of those supports.
So this is perhaps the only time I have agreed with @Kimmie, is that Dan can be hypo-critical and indecisive at times. But it was actually Chuck who stated that he has nothing to lose unless he doesn't makes a bloody decision!! Take a stand, your classless Klingon!
The Master Puppeteer: Noah Shapiro
Grrhh, Grrhhh... I make no apologies for loathing the man, but apparently he's to believed to have done something noble? Okay, so Vanessa got Harper Collins the publisher of Jonathon Saffron Foer books to approve the books, but somehow it was Noah Shapiro's publishing house that bought the retail rights to the book? I don't get the logic or process of it all.
Nate the Journalist??
Magazines don't make money or sell by advertising "A sense of Morality" as evidenced by some Chair and Dair fans that either want Dan to die in ditch, Blair to miscarriage, and Chuck to get r#p@$.
So, it seems fine that Nate is trying to make a name for himself even if he crossed the line. In fact, he might just do a better job than Blair and Dan's intern at W Magazine. But he's role does remind me of Brendan Fraser's character in Bedazzled.
"If You Build It, The Tears will Come..." by Dan Humphrey
"We always knew Bass was one sick Puppy..." as stated by Gossip Girl.
The Miss Waldorf sees this Gossip update and reinforces that she is alone because of Louis's admission to the magazine to a no-child policy and Chuck's immediate return policy for the cute Monkey to the pound.
But in reality, Field of Dream analogies set aside, is that Chuck is need of a friend. So Dan is right there in support of this new Duck romance. In this respects, Dan has come a long way from season 1 where he wouldn't dare help Chuck with he's problems. Dan is trying to building up Chuck's ability to feel good things even if those feelings are the lost of loved ones.
Final Comments and Plots Holes 101:
1.) How does Rufus have pull with the Judge? Did he managed to convinced him out of the kindness of his heart?
2.) Paternity tests can be done with DNA tests on a 4 week old fetus? Clearly, I need to go back to re-learn high school biology.
3.) Rufus and Dan seem to be helping out their respective Lily and Blair this episode a bit. Of course, maybe Humphries are still not escort material still?
4.) Dan and Blair fighting is always hilarious. Lol. Chuck's achilles is apparently Dan's fists where as Dan's achilles is the slap of Blair Waldorf.
5.) I'm still feeling bad for Dan as my pre-cog skills are telling me that he won't get Serena, he definitely won't get Blair (unless the writers are going to be very brave), and Vanessa is long gone. So any suggestions on where to Gary Marshall this problem? Ans: Maybe the "Real" Charlie comes along and Dan finally gets his own fairy tale ending. Hopefully.
6. Who is the "-A" from Lonely Boy's book? Ans: Alessandra Steele (I think Dan's new crush of a boss). Is the book cover a copy of the season 1 US dvd box cover? Ans: Yes, at least bits of it are.
i loved monkey!
Btw, thanks tvfanatic for the round tables, as soon as I finish seeing an episode of any series I run to the site to read it. Just one question, what happened to the reality index? I miss it so much!
People there's no doubt that our queen B. opened de paternity test, it appears in the episode, the question is if she is telling the truth about de baby being Louis's.
My favorite quote (apart from the Muppet hair comment) was Dorota's reaction to the thought of working on the upper west side: "Zabar's Zombies!!!" For all of you UWS NYC natives, you know it's true.
Thank you TV Fanatic for posting that clip. When I first saw the scene I didn't got why Nate was not informed of the real reason the dog was there but now I saw it was Chuck who wanted to keep it under wraps. Also after rewatching this I once again was confirm that of the 3 boys, Nate is the one that acts the most like a real life dude would, in the way of talking, moving, the words he uses, etc. At that dog has a priceless facial expressions.
Also thank you for acknowledging earlier our comments about Blair opening the envelope. I can admit a little suspension of reality that Blair looked that page but didn't read it, though I doubt it I think she read the result, but it's just my opinion and we'll see what the show will do with this.
I love reading these round tables, but whatever happened to the Reality Index? That was my favorite thing on this site
Come on everybody if the baby was Louie do you think she would have hide the Lab report?
@Courtney: from question What kind of scandals will Nate and Diana uncover? aaa HELLO!!!! they won't find out about blair cuz nate didn't take her phone! and if lious and chuck nows it doesn't really matter who finds out!
