I think apart of the reason the show has fallen is because of comments like this. All the actors have said they are tired. I get that. I get that after six years playing the same character over and over becomes dull, but when that boredness translates on screen, viewers get bored, too. We feel the tiredness. I think people always jump at the writers, but for me, partly, I started getting bored when the cast started saying they were bored.
MATT CAMDEN!!!! WTF
I think the right way to send off the show would for her to end up with Dan or Nate, but the writers just ruined both their relationships and ran them into the ground, so maybe a new, final guy would be best. And this is coming from a major Derena shipper, but I just don't see them working anymore.
Did anyone else notice that the bar guy was Mitchum Huntzberger from Gilmore Girls??? Maybe it's just my love of that show, but I can't help but see a lot of parallels.
Jenna is freaking creepy.
My literally dropped!
As much as I would love Georgina to be Gossip Girl, a part of me thinks it is highly unlikely. But we'll see.
There was also another unmentioned nod to the past: at the start, Blair is seen in the window of the car driving up to her fitting; like Serena coming in on the train in the pilot.
All in all, I think it was better than episodes have been in a while, but just the slight nods made me so very sad because the show is so very different.
good lord he used to be so witty. what the hell happened!?!?
I just want to cry watching this. RIP gossip girl of retrospect.
I was really hoping that this would be the last season. I feel like Gossip Girl season 1 is not even the same show as it is now and honestly I'm tired to waiting for it to get better. What used to be a my eyes glued to the TV every Monday night has now become a drag and something that I don't really get excited for anymore.
I makes me sad, retrospectively, because I used to care about these characters so much and cared about their lives, and now, frankly, I really don't care if Blair and Chuck are together or what happens to them. I have always loved Dan and Serena together, but the show has been manipulated and torn apart to where they don't even seem right anymore.
Unfortunetly I think a part of it is actors themselves. When you have actors saying the storylines are old and they don't even like working with specific people, that shows up in the episodes.
The 100th episode makes excited that they are revisiting the past, but at the same time it makes me scared that something will just be messed up. I am not one to give up on a show so I will continue watching waiting in vein that it will be better.
