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. Gossip Girl standards the last 1.5 seasons its a solid B tbh. Now if they can at least keep up this pace, the series might not end with a bang but it could go out decently.

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.

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.
