Gossip Girl Review: Headbands and Heartbreak

by at . Comments

The countdown is on. With only a few episodes remaining in the final season of Gossip Girl, the series tries to bring it this week. Let’s discuss "Save the Last Chance."

Is Derena Back On? Things looked promising when the hour started off with Dan and Serena still in bed together. The two decided they need to make amends with their friends before they even think about getting back together and letting people know about it. Mission accomplished.

So these two are back together. Good idea? Doubtful. Looks like Good Guy Dan really is long gone, proving so when Georgina made a quick appearance to find out that S will be the next chapter. Sorry, Serena, your luck hasn’t improved yet.

Cute Dan and Serena Picture

Basshole Drama. This arc needs to come to an end. Not only did it take up the majority of the installment, but it led nowhere once again. Father and son fight for drama. Ex-husband brings evidence to ex-wife who burns it. Somehow in this mess, Ivy ended up half naked. Pretty much the only good part to come out of it. Ivy tried to make deals with the Bass’ to destroy Lily. Didn’t happen. Chuck tried to stop Lily from burning the evidence. Didn’t happen. Really, the same as other episodes this season. A lot of build up for nothing big to come out of it.

At least there were some interesting new relationships. Bart became Nate’s partner so he can own him. This won’t last long. If there is one thing that Man Bangs is good for, it is standing up to the elder Bass. Gorgeous and tough. Thank you, CW, for putting Chase Crawford on our screen every week. Now just get him to take his shirt off. It’s been a few weeks...

Cute Blair and Chuck Picture

In a completely creepy twist, Ivy is digging her claws into another older man. Welcome back, Billy Baldwin! Serena’s absentee father returned to make out with Ivy and prove the two had been working together to destroy Lily (called it)! William didn’t seem to interested in the scratchy throat vixen by the end of the hour. Could this all be a plot to destroy Ivy? 

Anyone else think that Ivy with William is creepier than being with Rufus?

Speaking of Rufus: what are you thinking about returning the evidence to Lily? Girl dropped you when her dead husband showed up. You can not possibly be that nice!

Queen B Returns. Blair’s pop up show was a success, even with the scheming of Sage and the other high school minions. Best part about it? B brought back the headband! Worst part about it? Her success highlighted Chuck’s failure, as he now thinks they can’t be together anymore. Make a decision, you two. 

B Fashion Show

Overall, a pretty solid episode for the final season of GG. What did you think, TV Fanatics? Was “Save The Last Chance” up to par for an episode so close to the end? Check back for the Gossip Girl Round Table and visit our Gossip Girl quotes for the top stinging one-liners.

ed westwick the worst actor on the show lmao....seriously. do you really think blake,penn or chace could do some of the dramatic scenes ed or leighton have done...lol your dan\penn bias is showing.my bets on blake being the big star after the show.not for talent, but because she has aligned herself with good movies,a hollywood husband.and gucci and chanel. Ed second because of pure talent.chace may be the prettiest but out of the three guys, ed has something they dont.and leighton.. idk from the movie choices to her fashion choices to the BF just nasty...lol. i love her but idk.. her chices...

@b, Sorry, probably I did not read it well, then you're right!

It's the penultimate episode which the episode before the last I know the definition of the word do you so it's probably to be continued I said I would like for it to be Chuck, I'm pregnant

@b, You are not well read what was written Ausiello, and three words of which you speak will be printed at the end of episode 6x10, then drop curtain and nothing more! My opinion is that these three words are - XOXOX Gossip Girl, in other words the end, and nothing more! You will understand if you read the name of episode 6x10 – New York I Love you XOXOX!

TVLine said the penultimate episode will concluded with three words at first I thought it would be to be continued but after remembering that they said one of the characters in a show would be pregnant and included a picture of both S and B not to mention my thoughts after B fainted I'm thinking those words might be Chuck, I'm pregnant which explains baby Bass in the flash forward

Of all of the crappy episodes of this season this might be the worse. WHY? Because it could have gone SOMEWHERE. It made me smile the moment Ivy was about to turn the 2 Bass against Lily. Everything that had built finally would have made sense...she really had something against Lily, she once tore a check but today she said to William that they should have taken the money and go?!! WTF? It doesn't make sense...She didn't need to be WITH him, just want revenge more than being with stupid-damn-fool Rufus (GOD! I hate the Humphreys). It's not like I hate Lily, but she was definitely a bitch last season (She paid someone to lie during the trial to win back ChIvy's money, remember???). And I'm not buying bad Dan...we know this is not going to happen with writters like these...Damn! I'm SO dissapointed.

With all the spoilers and pictures, and recently, TV Line's spoiler from Ausiello...here is what I am pretty sure the end game is for some of the characters...
1.) From what I hear, Dan is playing Serena at first. For the "Serena Chapter". But he falls back in love with her.
2.) The pics of their wedding that we have all seen is actually a flash forward a few years and the pics of baby Bass that we have seen is obviously Chuck and Blair's kid as ring bearer.
3.) Chuck doesn't appear in any of the stills from the final episode, leading people to think he's dead. Highly doubtful, but I bet he IS in prison. If you look at Chuck and Blair's wedding photos, immediately after they say their vows, Chuck is led away by police. I bet he kills Bart. Or something.
4.) As for the rest...I don't know yet :)

I think Rufus has copies of the incriminating papers and will bring them out at the appropriate time. No, he can't possibly be THAT nice. And I think William is in a plot to ruin Ivy - just not sure how he is going to get the grandmother's money back from her.
