Gossip Girl Review: Tag Teams and Takedowns

by at .

What an hour. Gossip Girl aired its penultimate episode, "The Revengers,” this week and it took us viewers all over the place. There was scheming, crying, a possible death and even an arrest...

Bart, Bass & Beyond. Taking the stage in this installment was none other than the evil Bart Bass. Seriously, I have watched a lot of TV... even a lot of bad TV. These shows have been full of corrupt characters - but still, Bart takes the villainous cake. He possesses layers of evil and it doesn’t help that he is so smart with his crimes. Could you imagine having a father worse than BB? Yup, don’t think there is one.

Chuck continued his battle with his father and it finally started to peak interest again. These two had been having a tug of war for far too long. The fact that Bart would try to convince his son to leave the country and never come back is just crazy. What’s more crazy? The fact that he tried to kill his own child in a plane crash. 

Looks like this war is coming to an end. The scuffle between the Bass boys ended with Bart falling off the roof of the building where his Man of the Year party was still going on. Not that this hasn’t been entertaining, but I personally will be glad to get rid of the real Basshole.

Like Father, Like Son. Nate, having played both teams of the Bass war, ended up in jail just like his Daddy. What kind of prison is this that his high school girlfriend could just pop in and talk to him? Regardless, it brought back The Captain and that's always enjoyable. Nate shared some sweet father/son moments and gave him the inspiration to move forward...with the help of Sage.

Nate still has all of research on the identity of Gossip Girl. Is he finally going to take her down? He better, and hopefully he will use Blair Waldorf and her b*tches. If not, at least his mug shot made it on to TMZ...

Best Team Ever. This isn’t the first time the friends of GG have teamed up for a serious scheme. But I must say, Blair and the girls were awesome. They did just enough to creep out Bart and all get along, even if for just one night. Not to mention, they all looked flawless. Sage has grown on me, Ivy’s raspy voice is always welcome (when she’s useful) and even Georgina was likable. 

The GG fans have made the Georgina argument as tension-filled as the Dair/Derena/Serenate/Chair fights. Is she a welcome character or is she just a little too nutty? Has she worn out her welcome in the UES? Most appearances by G are entertaining, but they have started to grow thin. Does anyone else think this or do you wish she had been a full time character throughout the series?

Dan On The Move. Humphrey is moving on up! Dan made the bold move to get an apartment in Serena’s building, after admitting he still loves her and going against Bart. Is it enough to get S to stay or is she really heading to the sunny skies of California? He slipped an envelope into her bags; has to be his nice Serena chapter, right?

Will Derena get back together just in time for the show to come to an end? I hope so, or there are going to be some seriously angry shippers.

The End is Here. With only one episode left of the series, what can we expect from the writers? There have been Gossip Girl spoilers all over the place for the past several weeks. Looks like there may be some returning characters, some saying goodbye and maybe some saying something a little more important. Will Gossip Girl be revealed? Will Serena leave the UES side for good? Will Lily reappear? Will Serena really leave? Leaving behind her BFF would really put a hole in the heart of this show. 

It’s going to be a long week waiting for the series finale. This gives us time to look back at the Gossip Girl cast we’re getting ready to say goodbye too, as well as reliving the best Gossip Girl Quotes over the past six seasons.

Until then, sound off below and let us know what you thought of “The Revengers.” Did it live up to final season expectations or was it a let down considering there is only one episode remaining?

Check back for the Round Table of the week and make your predictions for the end of Gossip Girl! We've also posted the series finale promo below. Until next week, GG Fanatics. XOXO.

    To be clear I don't hate Chuck at all but I would rather he hadn't watched his father fall to his death. Also it's not the way I would've wanted Chair to start their life together. It's poor writing that smacks of a soap opera. The scene made me uncomfortable but perhaps my moral compass is just better developed

    Let's be serious, the only people whining about Chuck being a murderer are people who hated him already. Bart was actively trying to kill him. He'd threatened to kill Blair. He'd killed at least two other people that we know about, and most likely more. He fell off the roof in the act of punching Chuck in the face. So explain to me, who in their right mind would attempt to save the life of someone who was trying to kill them? Someone lacking either a brain or a very strong sense of self-preservation, I guess.

    Am I the only one that was relishing the beginning dream scene? While Bart was super creepin I did love hearing him call Blair "Mrs Bass". *swoon*😊

    @Gabby, I think you're not on the right track. @neddi^^ a few days ago gave a hint of what could be the role of William. William wants to be back with Lily, since Bart is gone forever! Ivy probably discovered that, which is now angry with him because he deceived her! As for Juliet Sharp, she returns because Nate and Sage are trying to find out who is the GG, so she was probably invited to help! Another thing, the last chapter which Dan shall write is about the GG, and this chapter Dan will give to Nate to publish!

    So now we can add another offense to Chuck's rap sheet. Statutory rape, pimp and now murderer. Are they writing this script from prison? This show has some messed up values!

    Why are kids watching this show? is the show suppose to teach them morals?. all the wierdos are back..talking about GG show as if is real life, get a grip ..truly, truly, sad...

    @Gabby I don't know why, but I'm super intrigued by Ivy for the next episode (I usually just wonder why she's wasting my screen time).

    And I don't know about the Dan thing... I'm actually hoping it's a little more complex than Dan trying to protect one of Serena's loved ones. I don't know how that would work, but we'll see. I could see GG being Eric though I suppose, though I'm not sure what his motivation would be.

    So, the preview.

    If Dan had the power to reveal GG's identity the whole time... who has he been trying to protect, and how does that protection prove to Serena that he loves her? So it's Lily, Eric or... William?

    And William having Ivy arrested (or escorted by security) and her calling him the devil... what's that all about? It was obvious from the William / Ivy scene in the hotel that he was using her, but why? Does this have something to do with Juliet's vendetta against Lily? Are Juliet and William the real couple here?
