So everyone's been busy: Nate's sleeping with an older woman, Serena's pretending to be Nate's girl to cover for him while she pines for Dan; Dan's getting a lot of chicas thanks to his newfound confidence; Jenny's slaving away at Eleanor Waldorf's sweatshop; Eric is stuck alone in the Hamptons; Chuck is eagerly anticipating Blair's return; Blair is faking a relationship with her
Gossip Girl: Spotted. Chuck Bass waiting for the Jitne y. A dozen roses in one hand, his heart in the other.But ouch. Breaks my heart. Obviously, Blair's just putting on a show for Chuck to see, so don't fret my love! He's only a guest star and you're the regular cast. But seeing as episode 2 is named after this dude, it seems like he's going to get a bit more screen time. Alas, CHAIR fans, do not despair. I feel more cute scenes coming up.
Blair: A hot lifeguard is like Kleenex. Use it once then throw away.Go Blair trying to cheer Serena up, when Serena can't even bother to give Blair a little support. Why am I hating Serena so much anyway? Isn't she supposed to be the carefree, devil-may-care IT Girl? Why is she sooooo sad now? Live it up chica!
Blair: The only thing lamer than dating Dan Humphrey is mourning Dan HumphreySlap her hand, bitch! That's the attitude. Don't let Dan get you down. He's dating the night away. And then Chuck enters and my life is complete. I love how Blair is so obviously trying to make him jealous -- it's crazy! Funny how Serena is soooo slow she can't even tell that it's time to act like they've been gushing over James.
But really, the core of this show is the banter between Chuck and Blair. When they're together on screen, it just comes alive. They've got it down to a science the way they fight and though I want them to get back together stat, I love seeing them argue!!!
Exhibit B: Jenny back to her scheming ways except this time, she's not annoying while doing so. It took me a while to wonder why Eric was angry at her, then I remembered she totally outed him and all that shiz! Evil Jenny, but hey, you can't be a bitch to him forever, right? Not when he's got an invite to the
Chuck: Do you really feel the same away about him the way you did about Nate?Honey, you guys love each other?!?! What is wrong?! Why are you hurting each other, whilst being so beautifully dressed? My heart is soooo broken seeing you both soo hurt. Just kiss and make up and then kiss some more. The garden is so pretty, you should be shedding tears of joy. Not sadness. Oh boyz.
Blair: I do
Chuck: I'll see you at school.
But really, these two have NOT resolved their issues. Dan's still being all high and mighty and self-righteous when he's been such a man-whore all summer. Meanwhile, Serena is still so wishy-washy. So why are you guys not fixing your problems first? Argh. I just found it really quick how they made up.
Chuck: I was scared. I was scared that if we spent the whole summer together -- just us -- that you'd see...Drama much? I love them, but dude, how old are you again? Despite my protests, I have to admit, I was pretty floored by this. Chuck, you can have me anytime. And what's up with not being able to say the three words, eight letters bit. I can't believe I actually thought really hard about it first before realizing it was I Love You (it is right?). Cause I counted and I Am Sorry is also three words-eight letters. I'm still betting on the former though.
Blair: See what?
Watch their crushed faces though as Blair walks away. I swear, these people should just get together already. But no, instead we get Dan and Serena parading all over town all happy. While Blair and Chuck are still apart and unhappy. Hey, at least they're NOT boring.
Before I end, is it just me, or did Dan get really tan on the Jitney on the way to the Hamptons. He looked all spiffy and Mystic-tanned in my opinion. What happened to my pasty white homeboy? And dude, writing on a Moleskine notebook in a wifebeater in front of a bonfire at night is just too much. Then Serena has to float in, in her Grecian see through white gown and the fireworks set off. How timely.
Next week, I think we head back to the not-as-picturesque Manhattan. I wonder if Rufus and Lily will finally make an appearance. And how will Dan-Serena be? Back to love-hood? But really, the countdown begins to how many episodes it takes for Blair and Chuck to finally get back together. Any bets?
