Seriously I would watch this show even more if it was just about Faye, Melissa, and Diana. I loved Adam hanging with the two girls, Faye is such an awesome character. Diana went to the top of the list when she told Cassie off for being so dramatic. I cannot stand Cassie (or Jake). I feel like she is always on the hunt by herself in every episode while the rest of the circle has fun and is actually entertaining and intriguing. Can't wait for the parents to come back into play with JB. And more scenes with the entire circle, stop focusing so much on Cassie!

So upset about AltLincoln, I mean to me he was the real Lincoln, cute, confident, and I loved Alt-Livia and him together. This season's 'real' Lincoln doesn't even come close to comparing to me. I would have rather seen Peter go over to the other side since he could have debriefed them on Jones and seen AltLincoln, AltLivia, and Peter interact. Gah, I'm seriously pissed they did this. I love the alternate universe, but I really want them to wrap up Peter's being erased from existence SL, because I'm still wondering if the rest of the characters will remember Peter and then start to remember their old lives? Will Altlivia ever remember having a child? Since Olivia is forgetting this life more and more, will we have just wasted this entire season trying to invest in new personalities and histories of our main characters? I will miss AltLincoln the most!

Gossip Girl Review: World War Waldorf

Apart from loving the Dan and Blair, this show was full of ridiculousness tonight.
Ivy spends time caring for CeCe (who didn't tell anyone else she was sick) and CeCe doesn't even allow her own daughter to keep her house?
And Lily and Rufus just leave willingly, without so much of a my furniture? my belongings? Because surely it would take much longer to pack up all of the stuff she has bought with her trust and what not and shouldn't want to leave it with a 'criminal' when she followed her sister around making sure her silver wasn't stolen.
Lily and Carol were ridiculous and I agree Lola should stay far away.

I'm glad Serena and Chuck are getting story lines because they've both been depressing to watch. And if they have to be on my tv screen I'd like for them to at least be interesting.

Gossip Girl Round Table: "Cross Rhodes"

Blair has now admitted her feelings for Dan, after realizing how much he cares for her, and that in spite of the things in their way (Louis, Chuck, Serena), she can no longer pretend.
..Serena realizes she's really not in love with Dan, because they haven't even spent time together since S4 pre-Ben. And her and Blair now have a stronger friendship than ever. Actually liked Serena for the first time in awhile.
Chuck is back to Basshole, knew it couldn't be long. Proving he really hasn't changed as much as he would think.
Dan stood his ground with Blair when she tried to sweep their feelings under the rug.
Nate was there for a pretty girl.
All in all, for such a terrible first half, the writing is still a bit inconceivable but could be worse. Blair is married and refuses to be with Chuck but has no problem being with Dan. Which in my hopeful eyes means she's really not sure how she felt about him even before she realized her feelings for Dan.

Gossip Girl Round Table: "Cross Rhodes"

I pretty much agree with Steve's answers. I really loved this episode even more than last weeks and I'll tell you why.
I feel like all the characters are suddenly realizing they've been in a trance for the first half of the year and it's all been a eery dream. This is where the season should have started off. ....

Gossip Girl Review: Winning!

But this is supposed to be a new Chuck. And after the crash, this is the first time we've seen Chuck continually proclaim his love for Blair without giving up or playing games. But it's only been three months, it's really not that long. I don't have any sympathy for him when he sleeps with Alessandra two seconds after seeing a GG post from Georgina. Even if it was true if he was really hurt shouldn't he talk to Blair about it? Or have any self control when it comes to sleeping with the next available suitor? Yes he's hurt from Blair, he's threatened by Dan, but does that mean he should get pity after using/sleeping with someone jeopardizing a woman's career and Dan's credibility as a writer? (At this point I should add he didn't know Dan sent the video).

Gossip Girl Review: Winning!

I am trying to understand how people feel bad for Chuck. He has most of the time been so quick to give up on Blair, a thing in which he does apologize in the beginning of the season. I'm not saying Blair is blameless but she has been the majority when it comes to returning to Chuck asking him how he feels, telling him she loves him... cont

cont. The thing that makes this season Blair so unbelievable is the Blouis relationship and the writer's making her profess her love for Chuck twice but put ridiculous obstacles in their way. They needed to end up with a Dan/Blair/Chuck triangle and they went about it a contradictory and just plain stupid way.
But now that we are there, we can return to the reason I enjoyed the second half of season 4 so much, more Dair!

Blair's relationship with Dan has evolved past high school. I can't even remember who I hated back in high school because it was always changing and you ended up becoming friends or never even seeing each other again. And Blair never actually hated Dan, they were both from opposite worlds and never took the time to get to know each other, they hated what they didn't understand. Their friendship has been the only thing shown on screen that took time and actually makes sense. Their feelings becoming more than friendship isn't out of the blue, it's been a long time coming.
I think the Dair relationship is dead on with Blair's character. cont

Gossip Girl Review: Backup Dan the Man

cont...Realistically, If Blair claims to love Chuck so much, all of these pointless obstacles would make no difference, they are not clever or reasonable at all. The writers need to wrap up this relationship or stick with it, because it's contradictory as shit. That being so, I don't feel even a slight bit of pity for Chuck. So he finally understands what it's like to be turned away for no good reason at all, big deal. Overall I like where Gossip Girl is headed, Dair was my favorite part of the episode, and Dorota in the closet. I just want them to close the door on Chair or whatever! So we can get back to the episodes that aren't based solely on one relationship.
