Gossip Girl > Gossip Girl Season Premiere Review: Do. That. Again. > Comments Page 4
There was some good stuff in this episode. Chuck's "fake died" explanation to Amira made me laugh my ass off. Bringing Bart really was insane and at least the show can poke fun of it. The Dan and Georginia banter was great as was Nate/Chuck/Blair playing scooby doo. The C/B jealousy angle did work but, damn, they're waiting for each other AGAIN? A legitimate secret relationship would've been a better road to go down. The hints of Dair? Oh come on!! The conclusion was certainly needed and Blair deserved that dressing down (though Dan didn't mention his little romp with Serena before Dair was done - whoops - lol).
If Bart hadn't died, I might've liked the whole Serena/Bart/Rufus/Ivy dynamic but...he DID die! So it's all simply weird. When I pretend Bart Bass' funeral happened, I like Lily as a Bass. Plus putting Ivy and Rufus together was good because they've been irrelevant for a long time. It works somehow.
I agree that it wasn't the best episode but was faaaaar from the worst.
Anybody get the impression that Sage may be Gossip Girl or someone close to Gossip Girl? With only nine eps, you would think that the writers and producers wouldn't just add this cute girl for Nate to date without helping his story in some way? His story is clearly unmasking gossip girl and making the spectator the only paper in the world...
Good episode, but Georgina was more comic relief than her evil genius self so I really hope that she has a greater story.
I hope this series ends with Ivy being blown up into a million and one pieces. She's just yuck.
I admit I loved Chair but I was prepared for going in a Dair direction this season if it meant an end to the most painful love triangle (rectangle? hexagon? what was that shit anyway??) EVER. Seriously, I was all down for Chuck and Ivy. But these show runners can't commit. Doesn't Blair love Gone With the Wind after all? I'd love for both Chuck and Dan, after Blair ping ponging endlessly between them (and a French prince haha) to tell her "frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn"!
@Rebekah I agree with you. I used to love Blair Waldorf. She owned her bitchiness, was funny and loyal. But now? she's just a flaky bitch and it was a huge mistake to make her the focal point of the series season 5 onward. Or at least the romantic focal point. That worked better for Serena, sorry to say !
On the plus side, the guys looked hot. Penn looks so much better without the Jeff Buckley hair! And Nate? Yum yum. Also love when they put Chuck in crazy suits. All 3 boys and all the girls looked fine.
Yea I'm shallow but pretty people is the only reason to watch this show! Oh and Rivy is kinda hot! lol
I also agree that Blair should end up alone.
I've never seen the appeal of her character. She's very stuck up and she really only cares about herself with the exception of maybe Serena.
Dan and Chuck can both do much, much better.
I'm with those who think Blair should end up alone. I mean the pact with Chuck bs and then backpedalling because she was flattered by Dan? There are no words. It was old last season, it's really old now! Ancient! They need to pick a guy for Blair and move the eff on!! Dair v. Chair was one (just one of, lol, there were many ) of the things that ended up ruining this stupid show and it certainly poisoned the fandom which used to be fun. So, yea, get Blair together with Chuck early, give Dair some closure (or the other way around - I don't give a sheeit) or have both guys say they've had enough of her bull! Now that would be a fitting and hilarious ending...and sadly it won't happen!
Dan's new haircut is hot!
I felt so bad for him when he walked in on his dad and Ivy.
Chair are annoying and I really don't care about their storyline. They should have ended up together 2 seasons ago and just stayed together. It would have been great for the show having them scheming together as a married couple. I didn't like Dair much either, although I found their relationship to be more meaningful and realistic. I preferred them as friends though because their friendship was adorable.
As someone who usually hates Georgina, I really loved her in this episode. Her insane theories about Serena being in a cult were hilarious.
The season is off to a good start for the first time since season 3.
I really hope we get some bromance scenes between Dan and Nate this season!
This episode wasn't great or bad.Serena seems happy with this new guy nd i like it.She doesn't want to be friends with blair again? GOOD but she is TOO nice to blair, i would have slapped her if i were serena.Dan is a pathetic loser, blair will NEVER love him, i thought the writers will give dan some dignity but we will see him move on by now but no, they always manage to ruin his character even more.I hate this guy more and more every day, i didn't think it was possible.I don't mind rufus and ivy and i wonder what bart is hidding.
Blair always be the reason i watch the show,,and love blair and georgina when they talked.,
I need to watch this again because the streaming sound sucked, but from what I could appreciate, maybe it wasn't the best episode in GG history but it wasn't the worst either. The beginning went straight to the point, the other parts introduced us to what the future storylines will be. Although I'm not so sure it's a good idea to use the jeaulosy resource once again for Chuck and Blair, in terms of chemistry it worked. Their scenes together and with Nate were golden. Dan with Georgina is funny, at least it's better than several of his season 5 scenes. For the moment, it seems Steven's biggest secret is his daugther, btw what's up with her? What's her problem? She has to know Nate is older than her. Serena lying about her name wasn't the best solution but at least it make sense where she came from, she even managed to be mad with N and C (with N it made more sense than with C). A bigger secret is Bart's because we can't know what's going on yet. Rivy was totally awful.
So... Im a Dair fan... With the exception of every stupid Chair scene... I kinda enjoyed this episode. I think/ im hopeful that it will end decent and at least not revolve around the goddamn Chair show!
OMG there is the Georgina we all love! Her quips with both Dan and Blair were hilarious! Georgina is much better now than S5!
Ugh... I was rolling my eyed at every Chair scene from Monte Carlo to the pact talk in the limo. I cant wait for Dan to fuck shit up! Oh, and Dan totally got Blair to hesitate about the pact and her choice, which is good!
It may sound strange and creepy but im kinda invested in Rivy! Where will they go with that?
I understand why Serena wanted a fresh start and i like that she had to escape the toxicity of Manhattan, although she is back by the end of the episode. Whats going to go down between her and Blair and her and Steven (i always just call him Barry Watson)?
the only people who shined in this episode as always, blair and georgine. yup this season is gg's funeral.
I will admit I did get a little bored at one point in the middle but I loved every moment of the show.!
So happy it's back, I love that Jenny, Damien, Eric and others were mentioned, I smiled when I heard J's name. Sage isn't much so far, but they didn't give us much...looking forward to next episode.I had many laugh out loud moments, mostly of them were when Georgina was talking. Serena looked amazing and so did Blair...and Lily. Loving the fashion and Blair in paris and the guy with the french accent, loved it all.
What I'm looking forward to....Serena and Blair's storyline, Sage as Queen, more mention of Jenny, Poppy Lifton, Minions, Dan & Georgina, Lola's plan.
(The user rating is low because like 650 votes were cast- by bitter Dair fans- before the episode even aired. Stay classy, guys.)
@thereal-R im with you i thought the episode was a good step towards everything that is going to happen this season especially ivy plan i cant wait for the rest of the season i have hope that it is going to be good i have been a gossip girl fan since day one not going to give up now
ill be happy as long as vanessa doesnt come back and blair doesnt end up with dan he needs to stop with his crap
i dont know what some people are talking about and why our user rating is so low, this episode was FANTASTIC! if the season maintains this momentum i think we'll have a strong final to this amazing show.
What's on the tape that Georgina and Dan keep talking about? Is it the one where Serena murdered someone, because I thought that had already been resolved? Or is it some type of sex tape?
Crazyness! I just read other blogs and this episode has started the chair vs dair ship crap. It's like season five all over again! Yawn! Horrible. This episode should have been complete closure for dair and just let chair be or break them up for good. Can't stand another 9 episodes of this crap!
I only made it through the first five minutes. I consider that an accomplishment. Ugh, I just couldn't stand it, it was all sorts of horrible.
CB fan and was not impressed. in fact I thought it was horrible. This show needs to end, I just hoped it would be on a good note :P ugh it's so bad.
@lulz I'm with you on that I was confused w that. It did seem like Blair idea and than they made it all about chuck idea..inconsistent writting again
It this episode was any indication then this season will be good. I also love the Georgiana/Blair rivalry. I hope that the B and S friendship is not completely ruin and they get back together by the middle of this season. I wonder what is Bart hiding for him to pay 10 million dollars. After tonight episode, I do not want Rufly back together because Rufus been around enough deciever(Jenny include) to know if someone is playing him but he is still clueless and deserve to be alone and Ivy needs to go back to Florida. Dan, get rid of the hairstyle!
What I don't get is at the start they made it seem like the pact was Blair's idea and chuck agreed to it. Then at the end they made it seem like it was chucks idea. I was expecting after dans diatribe for Blair to tell humpty that the pact was her idea.
i knew when ppl were talking about ivy and rufus that she was playing him because we also saw pictures of her kissing william vanderwoodson and lola gave her a mission to take down lily i knew it was part of some kind of plan
dan needs to get over his shit yes i feela tiny bit for him but bliar tried to contact him before they left and apparently through the summer also so its his fault there was no explanation AND come on he always knew that blair loves chuck he couldnt be that surprised
serena and steven im sure there is something going on there also because if the girl that was with nate is stevens daughter that means if she knows about him she knows about serena because she seems to know alot about nate which makes me think that if she meet sabrina then maybe dear old dad knows and how does he live right across the park and not hear anything that goes on around him in the papers
IM SO GLAD THE SHOW FINALLY STARTED CANT WAIT TO SEE IF MY PERDICTIONS WILL BE RIGHT and ofco
No more dair please! Yes chuck and Blair in limo was sweet but was it just me or was she second guessing her choice again? After she said she all in in season 5 finale and again tonight but dan talks to her and she all of sudden looks confused! Like really?! I thought at end Dan would end up w Serena but there only like 9 episodes and Dan still hung up over Blair?? I thought he was going to be all dark this season didn't seem like that at all! Disapointed.
