Saw this coming...Even though Josh whats-his-name denied it. Poor Jessica Szhor hasn't been relevant on this show in a long, long time. Taylor Momsen hates that show. I think the turning point was when Tim Gunn attacked her.
Oh!!! I almost forgot. I loved those little Gossip Girl fans making an appearance... I swear its like they took what's by fans on the internet and have those two say it. Good usage of a fan base.
Things I loved about this Ep,
-I love Cyrus :D And the Princess Bride reference thrown in there. Now if he had said "Inconceivable". I would have been on the floor.
Cyrus Rose was the best thing to happen to those Waldorfs and he's been there more for Blair than her own father ever was.
-I'm actually loving the Charlie storyline. It finally gives Serena something to do. And I loved the hurt look on her face when Dan didn't remember the dress she wore at Cotillion. And I loved the look on HIS face when he realized that Charlie was craaaazzzy. Charlie wanting to be exactly like Serena makes the whole "I'm-crazy-about-Dan-all-of-a-sudden" thing a bit more substantial. I'm looking forward to Charlie going all psycho on Serena too. I hope it ties in with Georgina's return.
-Jack Bass' return. I was exactly surprised when he joined up with Chuck. I was expecting him to try to take advantage of Thorpe to screw over Chuck. I mean the man used his own mother against him for crying out loud! But it makes sense too, if Bart's name were to be tainted, so would his by association.
-Eleanor getting jealous of Princess Sophie flirting with Cyrus and Cyrus having no idea.
-Serena finally giving Blair a proper apology. Blair has done some mean things but only ever out of hurt. Serena's betrayal was random at best.
-The return of Constance. Because when they left that place the storyline went to hell. Let's hope its appearance means better things to come for GG.
THINGS I HATED:
-The glossing over of Chuck's abuse. Oddly enough...Only Nate called him out on it. Everyone else just acted like it was Blair's fault because she's bad. Even Louis made her feel like that. That's when I was like...Nope, no more Team Blouis for me. Also Chuck didn't apologize. Not even a half assed one. Instead he was smug. And I HATE smugness. Team Chair I am NOT.
- Also, Chuck really does need rehab.I'm tired of them making choking back scotch look suave.
-Rufus had a purpose, now he's back to being a house pet :/ Bring back the plaid and waffles, PLEASE. (Never though I'd say that...)
-The entire Thorpe storyline is STUPID. But Holy Shit, Russel trapping Blair on that roof was scary. Like I said, Blair needs to protect herself!!! She couldn't even text Serena to tell her where she was going? While in the cab?!! Gawd!!
Sez, thank you very much. You've said it all. I think Finn was unjustified for breaking up with Rachel but it's clear the boy's a mess. He took Quinn away from Sam because he didn't want to be cheated on anymore. He wanted to do the stealing this time. But clearly he still loves Rachel. He's confused about why he loves her when Quinn, the hot Queen Bee, is around. Obviously, the issue of beauty is going to come up again. Quinn is so consumed by it and Finn will see that. Finn had his head played with last year, its probably best for him to just take a break from relationships.
As for the flirty song, Rachel hated what Quinn did to Finn. She's expressing how she feels. She's the only one on this show that isn't a liar. Although she did lie about losing her virginity, she eventually fessed up. And for what? So the rest of the Glee Club could laugh in her face about Satanna nabbing Finn's virginity when he promised they'd go through that together? Rachel wanted to hurt Finn the way he had hurt her, although they weren't together. And she owned up to it. Something Quinn has yet to do. Quinn is a bully. She bullies everyone around. She has no true friends. And she's not remorseful for anything she's done because she thinks being beautiful justifies it. I'm glad she loses Prom Queen. And I hope she has to honestly atone for her selfish and cruel ways. Slapping Rachel is disgusting behavior, I don't care how devastated she is about losing a plastic crown.
There's no excuse for physical violence EVER. I didn't agree with Lauren pushing Satanna into the lockers but at least with that one you can tell it was a two person fight not just someone sucker punching another person.
I'm not thinking that's the case here. Quinn's a bitch. She has people that support her even though she's nasty to them. I'm tired of her attitude problem being justified with entertaining lines and a ridiculous sob story. Rachel may have sung to Finn but Quinn should have listened to the lyrics...the song was called "You Can Go Your Own Way". Hardly man stealing material. Rachel may come on too strong and be insecure but she's never been mean spirited. Quinn lashing out at her is unjustified. She's jealous. Plain and simple. The only time she likes Rachel is when she can put her down about her looks. Finn said he loved Rachel and Quinn. He's too confused for her to be depending on him. I'm tired of the mean girls getting redeemed in this show when in fact, they're just spoiled bitches.
In which scene did Julianna Margulies shine the most?
She was on fire the whole night. My favorite emotional scene was when she broke down after she just found out about Peter and decides to kick him out. Her acting was beautiful in the scene with her children but I can't stand her kids. Grace is spoiled and grating to listen to. She's a lot like Jackie when it comes to judging Alicia. And Zach's lack of intelligence is astounding considering who his parents are. So that those thoughts distracted me from the amazing talent of Julianna Margulies. My favorite court room scenes were when she went up against the doctor for his bias. She was amazing.
Is Peter sorry for deceiving Alicia yet again or for getting caught?
Peter's worried about Peter. He's worried that Alicia leaving him will cause problems for him at work. His taking in Cary is prove of that. He plans to hit Alicia were it hurts, her professional life. It's what made her strong enough to leave him.
Was Cary presumptuous in expecting a third year associate designation to return to Lockhart Gardner?
Yes. He's made it clear that he doesn't want to be second to Alicia. But I think its blinding him. He's a great but he has to let that grudge go. He learned so much from the year he spent away. He's a much better lawyer for it. Dianne and Will basically had to talk to him like they were talking to a child. It's pushing him in a vulnerable position with Peter, who will use him up and throw him away once he's finished.
Why do you think Peter perked up when he realized Cary had a connection to Lockhart Gardner and to Alicia?
Because the Florick marriage campaign is about to go negative. Peter is clearly going to use Cary to dig up dirt on his wife so he can destroy her career. Because without it, Alicia will depend on him again and have to play the picture perfect wife. And this time, on his terms.
How would you have responded to Jackie had you been in Alicia's shoes?
Well, I hope I would have stayed even half as calm as she was but that's unlikely. I think I would have kicked out of my office. At the very least.
Is it really the end for Alicia and Peter's marriage?
It had better be. After his nasty little rant about Alicia "being the victim", he really has to be out of her life. He has hurt her over and over again, it's clear now that he's not sorry...He's just tried of having to work so hard for something he thinks is already his. Alicia is an amazing woman. A icon to females looking to be strong but poised. She can't go back now. Too many viewers depend on her as a good influence.
Im FURIOUS. How dare he say that it wasn't abuse? That she wasn't affraid!!!! I don't care what you're intentions were, she looked terrified. She ran away in tears!!! How dare he justify abuse!
Btw, I can't pause it in time...Who did Chuck punch? Was it Nate?
Blair needs someone new. Chair is finished. Or at least it should be.
This is sad, I was hoping Chuck would get some help on his own. Not have therapy as some plot by Jack Bass...Since those soap operas have been canceled have some their writers come to GG? Seriously where's season one!!!?
