I love watching the gang work together to take down some conniver, especially when Dan’s roped into the fun, and the Blair-Chuck tension just made it all that much more delightful to watch. The couples therapy session at the benefit — genius.
For most of the episode I was swearing at Serena for being so single-minded but my heart broke for her, seeing her alone in the lobby. All she wanted was a dad, she got him, and he turned out to be a trickster.
Jenny also got what she wanted — a life as queen bee on the Upper East Side — and it turned out to be a huge disappointment. J has acted crazy all season but this episode I felt just as badly for her as I did for Serena. No one ever listens to her or commiserates with her; she’s just written off as being angsty all the time. Rufus’s days of being an awesome dad are long gone; now he just punishes her without ever trying to talk to her. Aw, I wish the Humphreys still lived in Brooklyn too.
Mini shout-out to my favorite long-standing Gossip Girl prop: Jenny’s green & black garment bag. Little J’s only true blue friend.
What will the finale hold? Will Blair show up at the top of the Empire State Building? (I vote: yes.) What the heck kind of trouble in Georgina in? (Hmm, what kind of trouble requires a blonde wig?) Will Nate and Jenny please fool around before she leaves for wherever she’s headed?
Likes? Dislikes? Hopes for the finale?
