While readers sound off in the The Goodbye Gossip Girl" include memorable lines, Chair's declaration of love, the mysterious Scott, and predictions for Season 3 ...
1. What was your favorite Gossip Girl quote from the episode?
DANdy: This goes to Dan, for the most irrational diss of the night, as he breaks off a friendship with Serena by asking: "When you think about it, what's really keeping us together?"
Gossip Guy: Call me sappy but I loved the Chair exchange at the end where Blair asked him to say I love you a second time. They were so damn cute together!
Mister Meester: The scene at the end was obviously terrific, but I loved these two earlier Chair exchanges: 1. Blair: "We need to talk". Chuck: "I prefer to talk after." 2. Blair: "I haven't seen you in awhile." Chuck: "Have you been looking?"
2. What took you by surprise the most last night?
DANdy: The use of Gossip Girl as an actual character. It didn't really work for me. I'd prefer if the show simply used Gossip Girl as an anonymous, unique sort of narrator. The anti-Meredith Grey, if you will. Leave her alone, Serena, and just focus on your next, revealing outfit.
Mister Meester: Vanessa going to NYU came out of nowhere, though I guess they had to keep her around somehow. Georgina's unexplained caper-solving and enrollment at that same school came as a bit of a surprise, too.
Gossip Guy: Chuck returning from his European adventure with gifts for Blair! OMG. Though Georgina going to NYU and requesting Blair has her roommate? Pretty phenomenal.
Mister Meester: It will be a challenge for the characters as well as the writers to keep it from getting stale, but perhaps after a full season of their chase, Chair will be ready to grow into a real, steady relationship. Perhaps.
DANdy: No. What, will they do keg stands together at an NYC frat party? Go to a movie every Friday night? These two need the kind of drama that isn't possible to attain in a healthy, consistent relationship.
Gossip Guy: I would love for nothing more. However, I've learned one thing in this crazy Gossip Girl world. No one lasts more than a few episodes :(
4. If you were Gossip Girl, how would you describe the graduating seniors we love?
Gossip Guy: Serena - My Wife. Blair - Forever Queen B. Nate - Whore (sorry, Gossip Girl really nailed it). Dan - Perpetual moron for losing S and saying goodbye to her as friends (with potential benefits). Chuck - My Hero.
DANdy: Serena: Your breasts are bigger than your brain. Blair: Never change! Nate: Spend less time man whoring and more time working on facial expressions. Chuck: 2 kewl 4 skool... literally! Dan: Remember when you and Serena were ROFF? U R a moron.
Mister Meester: Blair: Future Mrs. Bass. Chuck: Morally bankrupt, but a softie at heart. Nate: Career politician. Dan: A poster child for Tourette's. Vanessa: She who magically appears without explanation. Nelly Yuki: She who must always be referred to by first and last names. Serena: She whose boobs shall never be tamed.
WARNING: Serena's outfits may distract you from crucial plot points.
5. What is Scott's agenda?
Mister Meester: Hopefully not acting. Dude didn't exactly sell himself as V's backpacking companion well. Seriously, though, who knows why this kid is digging into Lily and Rufus' lives, and what he already knows. Money seems too obvious.
Gossip Guy: Besides giving creepy looks after meeting Dan? I'm going with Lily's money on this one.
DANdy: Scott is Gossip Girl! Finkle is Einhorn! Scott is Gossip Girl!
BONUS QUESTION: What are your predictions for Season 3?
DANdy: Dan will make the Dean's list at NYU; Serena will transfer to Columbia; Vanessa will perfect her iced mocha latte technique.
Gossip Guy: Chair will last about four episodes, setting a record for any couple on the show. Georgina will claim top bunk. Bitch. Nate will drop out of college to pursue a full time career in high-priced man whoring. Jenny will end up embracing the Monarchy. Vanessa will never return from her camping trip (hey, we can all dream). Rufus and Lily will wake up a little groggy with popcorn kernels over them and the vague motion that their stoned asses got engaged. (I sure hope it lasts!) Dan will grow a goatee and land some land artsy chick. Serena will marry Gossip Guy.
Mister Meester: The bitch is indeed back as Georgina makes Blair's life a living hell at the glorified state school. Scott will throw a wrench into Rufus and Lily's engagement. Jenny and Eric rule the school. Serena gets kicked out of Brown. Nate and Vanessa are together after they return from Europe but she cheats on him with Scott ... or Dan.
