Gossip Girl Round Table: "Save the Last Chance"

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.

I am also surprised there was no mention of Dan's "Serena" chapter... Can we add another question to see yalls take on it?? Please :)

I'm surprised they didn't discuss dan writing a serena chapter while "dating" her......


After all that Lily has done for Chuck and everything Bart did during the beginning of their marriage that provedhe didn't trust her why on earth would she believe a word he says she has truly turned in to Cecelia who is in heaven/hell tipping her glass of Gin


I have to say I liked seeing Nate as a desperate guy trying to save his business. He played his part very nicely. But as I've said before I can't believe all that Ivy plot unfolded as stupidly as it did with this episode .
Kudos for the waffle rant. I'm sick of the male Humphreys too.


4. I agree with Christina, thumbs up, there is little time left to throw to irrelevant characters!
5. I agree with Leigh, it was time for Blair to saves Chuck with Serena, Ivy and Sage, and likely to involve the other Dan, and Nate and maybe Lily! As for Chuck and Blair, when Bart is out of picture, follows the wedding!


1. Nothing really stood out to me.
2. Ivy & Rufus, because I have a feeling William will double cross Ivy in the end, which is what she deserves, and who better to give it to her.
3. One would hope Lily took a page from Bart's playbook and didn't destroy the microfilm, but is holding onto it to use as leverage/blackmail down the road.
4. Thumbs up! They're all irrelevant!
5. They're just denying themselves now so they can have fantastic Monte Carlo sex later. Anticipation is the greatest aphrodesiac for these two.


2. Worse combination is Ivy and William than Ivy and Rufus, as it was known that the relationship between Ivy and Rufus will not last long and it was based on Ivy’s lies. Ivy and William are couple aimed at something else than to be together.
3. I think that Lily did the right thing to burned evidence of Bart, since if she did not do that this evidence would send Bart to jail, but Lily, Chuck and Serena will lost their property because it would be confiscated by the state, as was the case in Nate's father! However, there are other ways to Chuck beat Bart, and it's fraud with 4 gorgeous - Blair, Serena, Ivy and Sage, since Lily does not have to tell Bart that she destroyed evidence of his illegal trade!


As I said earlier, as we approach the end every episode is better and better. Of course, for me, the best episode is 6x06, Serena and Dan still had it! But back to the episode 6x07, which we are reminded why we fell in love with GG 5 years ago.
1. For me, the most beautiful scenes in which are Serena and Dan happy in love, and so a great scene when Serena and Dan wake up in bed together and drink morning coffee, just as I imagined them, it's beautiful! Best quote, yet oddly related to Serena and Dan, when Dan replies Georgina - I'm writing a chapter on Serena, and off the phone and throws it, and then enters Serena and end up in bed together!


-Jenny should come back and take down Sage. I hate her.
-Serena was fabulous as always.
-What happened to Blair's voice. She was dark and cold now she has this squeaky annoying thing going on. And here wardrobe goes up and down along with her hair. It's very annoying what they've done with her.
-Can't wait to see what Dan's got planned.
-Georgina needs to return and Steven and Sage should never return.


Trading her a night to his uncle for his hotel deed which she was willing to do herself until she found out he'd agreed to the arrangment then being devastated by why he did is the same fight they had from others perspective when she manipulated him into kissing a man in order to give a toast for anyone to think they've not done each other both poorly is mistaken it's further proof they deserve each other and that by forgiving these indiscretions they have proved their love can survive anything
