This episode was EPIC, but not in a good way. There was no buildup to Chuck and J (can't even type her name). Chuck not waiting before falling into someone else's s***** is getting old. Even if Chuck wanted to sleep with her (which the normal Chuck would not), she didn't want him. His regression was just a terrible writing ploy to keep Chuck and Blair apart. I don't understand why they threw Chuck under the bus, ran over him, put the bus in reverse and ran over him again. Does Ed want off the show? Why are Jenny fans not more upset? Nate's first time was hot (but had some guilt involved), Dan's was romantic and loving and we all know about Blair's. Jenny's was a terrible plot device involving someone that she HAD a somewhat "off" (negative) relationship with PRIOR TO THE LAST FEW EPISODES???!!! I don't get it; they didn't have to actually have sex. And the icing on the gross cake was the tasteless scene with Jenny looking at something on the M-F bed!!! That was gross and unnecessary IMO. Dan continues to be... Dan. Serena needs to get her head on straight; but if that happens then the show will be over. Georgina---> yawn. I've had enough of Georgina to last a lifetime and truly could care less. I must be in the minority, but I don't watch GG for OMFG moments or drama actually. I could tolerate and watch, even LOVE, a show with characters that are in love, working thru relationships, dealing with issues (internal and external) but overall HAPPY. That is not boring to me. It's harder to show couples happy and content and keep that interesting than to think up obstacles, over and over and over again. Character assassination became a plot device, which is disappointing. I didn't watch/DVR the last two episodes and I have removed GG as a listing from my DVR. I know I'm only one person but I won't be watching S4.
1. Nate's snarky comeback to Serena--he would have gotten the finger and a few choice words for that one 2. Bitchy Jenny--I'm okay with seeing where this SL goes. Does Jenny grow up and mature or try to become a bigger B than B 3. V who???? It was nice--I didn't have my finger on the FF button the whole friggin show in fear of seeing her. 4. I can't remember how long HD is here. That's one of the issues of announcing how long guest stars will be on the show for me. I'm doing a countdown in my head of their episodes instead of trying to connect with their SL's. 5. I don't know honestly but it has to be involving Jack in any way. WTF was that??? B would know better and she didn't appear to want anything to do with him when we last saw them interact. To be truthful, all of the scenes with S/B/C were "off" to me. And this S/B conflict seems forced to me, just like the depth of C's reaction to B's scheme last week. Chuck would have given her kudo points for turning the tables on him and then picked out a girl for her to kiss. Next week: I predict Grandpa Vanderbilt will stage the almost "drowning" so Tripp can save the person to make Tripp look like a hero and that he's using V to film it--foreshadowing about her doing the Vanderbilt documentary said by D/O (been there, seen this before, didn't like it then, don't like it now). Lastly, I'd like to second LuLu's comments above. We're getting a very pale, depressing facsimile of C/B this season and it's insulting. When B complimented C about being sexy and 'legitimate', C would have pulled her in for a short but passionate smooch and not just walked the F off to go to a meeting. That's just one example to me of their screwy dynamic this season. I'm beginning to believe the writers don't want C/B to succeed as a couple, so they can say "we tried, they failed, next relationship" or OMFG moment.
If it's one thing they HAVEN'T done so far, it's make GG the Chuck and Blair show. The amount of their screentime has not been large or consuming on the show. They can't be angsty, "turmoil" Chair forever--this is why Season 2 was painful (for me at least). There's nothing wrong with them being in love and why shouldn't they treat EACH OTHER with love and respect? (IMO Chuck isn't being a p**** or whipped) There's nothing wrong with Chuck truly cherishing Blair and vice versa. And for Chuck to go back to his womanizing ways would be regression at this point. The writers hold all of the cards, and they're the ones who can write Chair as a loving but â€˜dysfunctional in their own wayâ€™ couple. I felt Dan and Olivia's scenes were cute enough. I've been hoping for Serena and Nate since S1 (Dan's dream), so I'm looking forward to their scenes. As for Vanessa, I can't really express an opinion because I FF thru every one of her scenes. I actually watched the show in real time (to try to help ratings) as well as DVR it, but it was truly painful to have to sit thru her scenes. I've not formed any connection with her and I just wouldn't care if she didn't show up in any future episodes.
