And because I didn't really get to follow The O.C. when Will Holland (Caitlin) came around, so I'm not really super excited for her guest appearance. But hey, bring in R-Bils any day or even Ryan and I'll get excited! Still, this episode was yet another crazy one that put a lot of the show's wheels in motion. New drama up ahead!
But really, Dorota walking in on her and waking her up then saying: "God always watching Ms. Blair" is hilarious. Who knew Dorota had a 'holy' side? In the end, Dorota really is the only one who sort of loves Blair unconditionally.
But wait! There's more! Nate actually comes to the atelier to drop off her sketchbook that she couldn't find that morning. Hello young lovers! Nate really is the whore of the bunch. He's been paired up TO EVERY SINGLE GIRL. Seriously. Well, that just means his chemistry is fab with everyone! My turn, Nate! My turn!!!
And Chuck Bass smells desperation reeking from her too. Although I must say, Blair trying to seduce Chuck with her new scent and spilling the drink on his pants and wiping it up is so very Blair. Chuck saying that Blair ruined his pants though got me laughing on the floor. Only Chuck Bass cares more about his pants (Oh wait! They're from Savile Row -- I'd be worried too).
When I first saw him, I was a little meh about it, but then now seeing him with Serena -- it could actually work. He's like an even more artsy/brooding version of Dan -- except he's rich! And revelation of the century! Serena can spell!!! That's great!
Dan and Serena trying to be friends seems like a mature decision. But the highlight of this entire conversation is when Serena asks Dan how things have been going with Nate and Dan says, "It's been good, it's been really good." Bromance forever!!! I swear I'm all for N/D!!! This ship is going to sail into the sunset!
Chuck giving into Blair would have been fun, but I guess they need more foil to stretch this story through the season. I wonder how long into the season they'll figure out that the fans are getting impatient. It's 8 episodes already!!! It's 1/3 of the season, I want to see an actual Chuck-Blair relationship!
Obviously Agnes running away with Jenny's dress was mean, but we all know little Jenny can't help but forgive Agnes for this, because it's in Jenny's nature to side with the 'bad guys' in her life. Oh Jenny. Sure, Agnes's friends think Jenny has talent, but at least Jenny realized that even she was 'too young' to own her own line. Oh yeah and too broke too.
And Dan was bordering on funny and psychotic. When he said: "Do you love him? Wow someone loves Chuck Bass," I was laughing my ass off. But then when he waxed poetic about hearing Serena say she loved him was the best moment in his life, I swear I thought I was going to barf. Oh young love. NOT.
Eleanor: You are lucky i dont fire you. Jenny: You are lucky i don't just quit. Oh wow. Not good. I need new Jenny drama and not in the form of employment or stealing Queen B's throne! I want love issues!!!!
But what really made me laugh was when Serena tells Blair, "Don't jump, B! You don't want your obit to say you died in Brooklyn!" Wow, a slap made at Brooklyn by Serena! And Serena, don't bitch at Dan. It's not his fault, you brought him into this anyway. Oh and Chuck-Blair make me want to pull my hair out, because goodness, they really can't resolve their differences, huh? Dan, I suggest you don't get into this ever again.
And Agnes's line, 'He doesn't care, he's a photographer!' bit was just plain stupid. Meaning Jenny is even stupider for falling for it. Papa Humphrey is going to be very very angry. But wait! Nate has arrived!!!!! Jenny's knight in shining Armani tells her he'll wait if she won't leave. Oh Nate! When did you grow a pair? I'm loving it!!!
But wait! Aaron isn't just any guy, he's her childhood sweetheart from summer camp in Europe! Oh the connection! Too late though, Aaron is already leaving on his motorcycle in the arms of another woman. Don't jump to conclusions though, S. I'm sure there's a perfectly rational explanation for this.
I hope they both get over their fears of getting hurt and just dive into it head first. These two deserve a shot at happiness and if it's with each other, then why not, right? But I guess for now, it's probably a good thing -- plot-wise to lay off this.
LITTLE J ISN'T SO LITTLE ANYMORE
And Jenny! How lucky can you get?!?! She "might" get her own fashion line; she's not going to school; she's bagged the prettiest boy on earth!!! But wait, Blair might not like this. And didn't Vanessa date Nate too?! Looks like Jenny's got a lot of enemies already and it hasn't even begun yet. Good luck, Little J.
