Gossip Girl Round Table: "Save the Last Chance"

by at . Comments

Welcome back, once again, to TV Fanatic's weekly Gossip Girl Round Table Q&A discussion! Below, our panelists break down all aspects of this week's Gossip Girl episode, "Save the Last Chance."

In our Q&A session, TVF editor Steve Marsi and staff members Christina Tran, Leigh Raines and Courtney Morrison share their opinions on everything that went down on the Upper East Side.

Weigh in with your take on the following topics after reading ours!

-------------------------------

1. What was your favorite quote or scene from the episode?

Courtney: Hate Bart Bass... love his quote: "Where are you going? Blair need you to come over and kill a spider?"

Leigh: Ivy's comment that if she had to eat another waffle she'd throw up or die or something. Touche!

Christina: Nate: “Who would have thought... Chuck Bass turns out to be the good guy, and Dan Humphrey is the villain." Nate's never looked better and I'm fairly certain he's as wise as ever, too.

Steve: I'm always a fan of the Eliot Spitzer-style political references one-tenth of the views probably get (Lily calling Serena a teenage Rielle Hunter being another favorite), but I have to agree with Courtney on this one. Bart really got him with that one, especially given that he's criticized Chuck relentlessly for his Blair obsession over the years.

2. More disturbing: Ivy and Rufus or Ivy and William?

Courtney: Definitely Ivy and William. I had just gotten used to the Brooklyn couple and Ivy had to go all fatherly figure elsewhere. I get a very creepy vibe from these two. And obviously, William has another trick up his sleeve.

Leigh: Probably Ivy and William because she impersonated one of his daughters. Incest is not best my friend.

Christina: EW on both accounts. I can't pick either because both are equally disturbing to me.

Steve: Gotta go William there. Something about boning one's fake daughter just doesn't sit well with me.

3. Should Lily have burned the evidence on Bart or is there a backup somewhere?

Courtney: I don't know if it will be Lily or Rufus, but one of them is not that stupid and has to have a copy. I would hope so ...

Leigh: Somebody else somewhere has to have something to take down Bart Bass. He's a man with many enemies who were probably plotting before Chuck was even born. This is not the end of Bart's takedown. 

Christina: Bart Bass is going down. Microfilm or not... it's going to happen.

Steve: No, Bart's totally in the clear now, and Chair is done for. Sorry, just wanted to see if I could write that with a straight face. That guy's got more skeletons than ... someplace with a lot of skeletons.

4. No Georgina, barely any Sage, and no Steven: Thumbs up or thumbs down?

Courtney: Thumbs up! I don't mind Sage all that much, and Steven I don't hate when I'm not picturing him on 7th Heaven... but Georgina I can not stand! She used to be bearable but has gotten worse over the past few guest stints If I never see the character again, I won't mind.

Leigh: I like a good dose of Georgie, Steven is whatever, but I am so sick of Sage (and the writers) thinking she can best Serena and Blair. Even though fashion trumped five family loyalty, I am so sick of her!

Christina: Thumbs up, for sure. There's hardly any time left, and all focus ought to be on our core characters. Forget about the rest.

Steve: Thumbs up. I do enjoy Georgina, but sometimes less is more. As for Steven and Sage, I don't dislike either with a passion, but knowing that the show is coming to a close and having them be such a focal point of Gossip Girl Season 6 has made it less enjoyable at times. Under these circumstances, it's hard not to view them negatively.

5. Chuck tells Blair they can’t be together... again. What’s next for these two?

Courtney: Make a decision!!!! Will they? Won't they? It's been burned into the ground. The two are in love with each other. They have fought to be together. Is taking down Bart really that big of a deal to keep them apart? I'm thinking not and that ring will be around Blair's finger instead of her neck in the finale. At least, that is my endgame :)

Leigh: Ugh please. We all know Chuck goes dark and Blair saves him. It's how they do. Three episodes left, but they aren't gonna end the series without making fans happy.

Christina: Seriously?! I can't believe the the tale of Chair together or not together has been dragged out all season long. Of course they'll end up together, but we likely won't get to see it happen until the very end.

Steve: See Gossip Girl finale spoilers. Enough said ... or something. Look, there's plenty of speculation about how things end for Chair, but anything short of a fairy tale will lead to widespread revolt as Leigh says.

All you have partly right. Dan has spin Blair because he could not be with the girl he wants most – Serena! Serena and Dan are in season 4 made a pact to try one more time to be together, and if they make it great, if not then the end! Dan did not want to ever lose Serena, that's why he tried to be with Blair, and if he manages well, if not nothing! It is nice to see that from episodes 6x05 and 6x06. Everyone thinks that Dan is not telling the truth to Serena in episode 6x06, which is exactly the opposite - Dan is the only honest with Serena, and has full confidence in her, and vice versa!

I agree with XOXO comment. Dan should have known better than to hook up with a disturbed Blair. Im not a delusional chair fan either..dair should have never happened. Biggest mistake in GG history.

Blair made a pact with God, married Louis, and dated Dan because after her miscarriage caused by the car accident she didn't want to face the messiness and unceartinty of a life with the man she really loved Chuck. She tried to fight it, to kill it but her heart was always with him and Dan knowing the state she was in and everything she'd been through kept pursuing her until she relented and dated him which was the first time Dan's selfish true nature was revealed ^^^ THIS IS INSANE. For the first half of season 5, Dan BROUGHT BLAIR TO CHUCK. After the wedding, no one forced Blair to do ANYTHING. She chose Dan, on her own accord. Dan didn't pursue her. He tried to avoid her. You Chair fans have really gone off the deep end here. Just insane.

It's cute that Chuck and Blair had on the same outfit. Her dress and his jacket is the same color and pattern. I'm not worried about them anymore because they will end up together no matter what

Favourite quote - Chuck's comment on Bart misplacing his viagra. More disturbing - Ivy and William. It was sick enough with Rufus, but this is a whole new level for me. When I saw her kissing William, I was like... Ok, I have to go vomit now. Evidence on Bart - I agree with Christina. Bart is going down, one way or the other. I just wish it could happen already, because this entire situation is pissing me off. No G and Spence clan - thumbs up. Chair thing - oh, come on! Enough with this bullsh!t already!

Every review I've read claims that Dab is playing Serena which goes with the spoiler that said that they would reunite with a twist that he's playing her maybe he has a change of heart maybe not maybe the wedding is a dream of his a what if I had done things differently!

In the previous Dan’s book the last chapter was of Blair and it was written in a positive way, now the last chapter is of Serena, and if we follow the pattern it will be in a positive way!

I do not want to be on duty counsel of Serena and Dan, but as participants in the TV Fanatic Round Table said nothing about Dan writing the chapter on Serena - I will! Dan has already written a chapter on Serena, see Serena and Dan talk in 6x04, but he did not wrote the end! Everyone is well aware that in the chapter on Serena it will not be anything new that already it is not written in the first Dan’s book. Only new it would be how the chapter of Serena ends! As we have already seen the 6x05, 6x06 and 6x07 Dan and Serena are back together, and they activate their pact from season 4 to try again, and to said everyone that they back together which will be in 6x08! That's why Dan said to Georgina that he is writing a chapter on Serena because Serena is the only thing that Dan always wanted, and now he achieves that! In the previous Dan’s book the last chapter was of Blair and it was written in a positive way, now the last chapter is of Serena, and if we follow the pattern it will be in a positive way!

Ummm i would LOVE Little J coming back to take down Sage. Bitch knows how to do it right. Also fire away with a Serena/Dan question and I'd be glad to chime in.
