Oh well. Fashion Week can also be spelled as DRAMA and that's exactly what Gossip Girl had to give us this week. GG was right in saying there's always a catfight at the catwalk. Too bad we have to wait two weeks for the next episode.
But wait, Dan is now going to Yale?! Wasn't he supposed to be going to Dartmouth? Oh wait, I think it's got something to do with the fact that next week's episode is going to be set in Yale and it would be much easier if they all went to the same college next year. Oh writers, you are too funny. And why is Jenny cutting class?! I suppose Papa Rufus won't be too pleased with this.
Lily is back and she looks fabulous! And she's buying art! A Maplethorpe! A naked lily!! I cannot wait to see that. Lily was ALWAYS the coolest mom on the upper east side, Serena. Get with it! I find it a little odd that Lily would want HER nude pictue to be in their house. Well, she is hot.
Meanwhile Dan tries so hard to impress Noah Shapiro who I liken to his version of Dorota -- except meaner. It's good to see Dan put down. I heard a bit of what he wrote (his gift to Serena in 'Roman Holiday') and I wasn't really impressed. Obviously, the
How exactly did Dan get home though without his shoes?! Cause he sure seemed stoned. Chinatown isn't very near 'Brooklyn' (aka Dumbo), but I guess let's just throw Geography out the door. I guess Dan brought cash for his cab home.
How old exactly is Poppy?! Because I can't imagine her to be Serena's age, more of like in between Lily and Serena, but if she's older than Serena, then why is she hanging out her?! Still, other than that, I find it weird that they're having dinner at home. Was there no hotspot available to shoot in?
Anytime Rufus gets angry, I get angry. So Jenny, you're a bad girl. I would feel really guilty if I were Jenny. They're not exactly rolling in money and yet she's not going to class. Poor Rufus (literally and figuratively). Jenny should be locked in her room. Stat.
I love how he totally opens up about his mom dying at childbirth to Dan. Then taking it back when he realized that Dan was just using him to get material to write about. Oh Chuckles, I know there's pain in your heart. Let Blair soothe that pain.
Which makes me wonder what the hell is inside that Lily Bass dossier he's talking about?! What could be so incriminating that Lily eventually forgets she's angry at Bart for hiding the Maplethorpe and taking him up on the necklace he's given her. Dirty details for future plot lines! I love it!!!
Which Serena totally works and poses for the photographers for a good 15 minutes. Seriously. I can't believe it took her that long! Was there no stage manager there telling her to get off so that Eleanor could come out? Oh wait, Eleanor was busy getting mad at Jenny backstage. How convenient.
It's beyond me how silly it's gotten, but I take it all in because of my love for this show. Eleanor thanks Jenny for 'saving the show' and for a second there, Rufus sees his little girl bask in her 'fashion glory.'
I swear Blair and Serena need to talk it out and just understand each other. These two are actually innately nice, they're just not understanding each other. Still, catfights make for good television, so I think they're going to let this one last for a few episodes before another Georgina type comes along. Drama!!!
Then of course, there's Rufus and Jenny -- who wants to leave school!!! Hello Jenny! Where are you going to live?! Don't think you can stay under Rufus' roof if you're not going to school. Just be a good girl, please?! But good girls don't make good television. I don't want this kind of drama!!!
