You know what's sad? Watching some old episodes of this show and then watching recent ones. Ooof, it's like a punch to the gut. It's really unfortunate to see a show that you once loved turn into a total piece of $#!*.

sorry for the multiple comments, but it wouldn't let me submit one long blurb, 1000 character limit :(

As a side note, I love Dan, he's just so kind. He's crazy about Blair, but knows that's not what she wants or needs and is just being a supportive, good friend. I would like him to get a haircut though! Also, it's nice to see Serena acting more down to earth, I loved how she stood up for Blair and acted like a good friend. Louis trying to expose the affair was crap, he said no more scheming, but that lasted for nano second. Chuck is fun to watch as normal. Nate is just vanilla to me and the Charlie plot line held no surprises.

Also, when Chuck and Louis wanted to find out what she was doing, she was willing to let them think she was having an affair with Dan and then when Louis asks her why there is distance she says she's converting to be a Catholic. Why couldn't she have used that excuse from the get go? Just say I've been hanging out with Dan because he's helping me in being converted, it's supposed to be a surprise, that's why we were sneaking around. Also, why they bought that Dan was sneaking around with BLAIR meant that he was dating SERENA is beyond me. There would be pictures of him and Serena together then, not pictures of him and Blair. That excuse made no sense and I couldn't believe that lie was just accepted. I feel like although I still find this show entertaining, there is quite a bit of sloppy writing and holes in the plot, they need to really think about how they explain things and tie them together.

I overall liked this episode but a few of the plots points had holes in them or could have been explained better. For example, Blair make the pact with God and then sees the cab almost hit Chuck and is freaked out. Why wouldn't they mention the fact that she chose Chuck and then gets in an accident and loses the baby as God "punishing" her for not marrying Louis. She could then feel guilty and want to repent for the loss of the child.

Every once in a while, I'll come back to this show and hope it's gotten better, and I have to saw after watching this episode, Oh My Goodness this show Suuuuuuuucks. Lazy writing. Pandering to the Chair shippers. I can't even defend or justify watching this slop, anymore to my boyfriend. Gross.

so what was up with the whole Jack Bass/ Diana phone conversation at the end of, "Riding in the Town Car with Boys"? Why didn't Gossip Girl touch on that in this episode?

From being an avid GG fan I think one should now watch this show only if one has NOTHING better to do! I mean how patient can one be hoping the story goes somewhere and how darn useless can GG writers be - uninspired and unoriginal and taking GG fans for a ride. The GG guy was quoted as saying somewhere that things are always unpredictable, and that even if things end a certain way, there is no guarantee they will remain that way and that the characters may soon change their mind again. I know that the GG characters were never in the steady, steadfast category but still they at least acted with some rhyme and reason .This guy's words seem to indicate that the writers just plan to make changes willy nilly with not even an attempt at realism. We should teach them a lesson by boycotting this show if they continue to stretch our levels of patience and incredulity.

i believe Blair herself once said "Signs are for the religious, the superstitious, and the lower class. I don't believe in them and neither should you". Now isn't this a little hypocritical? This show needs to end, they are wasting the time of an amazing group of actors and actresses. Specifically Leighton, who is so much better than what Blair has become. Everything was predictable, and a terrible episode in general. Once again, Ed and Leighton's acting put some life into the show, what a waste oftheir chemistry with such a pathetic plot. Pray to God Georgina saves this show.
