I'm glad that that wasn't Blair's party just yet. Because compared to last year's Seventeen Candles, this one was pretty tame considering the Queen B's coming of age.
Oh and Serena was brought to the Cloisters by Aaron!!! Points for you! Backstory: Pamy and I were in New York in 2005 and we kept on planning on going to the Cloisters but never got around to it because it was too far. Damn you Serena for being able to go.
Since when did Blair want to be Grace Kelly?! What happened to Audrey. But I guess with Cyrus Rose looking like this, she'd wish she was anyone else. In my head, when I was reading the book, Cyrus Rose did NOT look like that. But hey, I guess a surprise is a surprise. Plus, his wife Alice must have been very hot, because he couldn't have spawned Aaron (the only reason I'm not surprised by the fathering of Aaron, is cause I read the books).
And Dan, don't sell yourself to the devil, also known as an expose on Bart Bass for New York Mag. I wonder what the folks over at Daily Intel think about this. I haven't read their recaps in a bit, but I'm sure they'll be glad they were finally used. Their devotion to Gossip Girl is crazy. But really Dan, don't. (on a side note, I watched John Tucker Must Die and wow he had long wavy hair, very soap star)
Listen to Blair, S! You're his muse today, and abused tomorrow. But really, I can't believe their blowing through this story line really quickly. I wonder how many episodes Aaron Rose is signed on for. I wish they would write a better plot for him and S. I had so much hope for this couple. And props to Blair for trying to be the good daughter. I doubt this will last though.
Is Cyndi Lauper promoting a new album? Because she's getting a lot of press in this episode. Along with the Vitamin water that was in the bar where Jenny and Agnes met. But really, I didn't know Eleanor and Blair are fans. And wasn't I just hating Eleanor last week? Why is suddenly NEVER at the atelier this week?
But wait! Look, you're not alone! Aaron has a harem of ladies waiting to be installed into his calendar girl project perhaps? I'm sorry Serena. You may be Miss November, but Miss December is waiting in the wings. Better get out of this pervs place stat!
Listen to Rufus, Dan! Don't hog the spotlight by bringing the Bass's down. You know you'll get in trouble for this. I feel so terrible for Rufus. Not only is Jenny a bitch, Dan's an ass and there's no Lily!!! I swear he should have just eloped with her and left those damn kids alone.
I couldn't understand whether Blair was falling for Aaron's sappy love story or whether she just needed ammunition for eventual annihilation later on. I found Cyrus very McCain. Maybe it's just the age. I don't know. But the entire Vietnam War story just had me thinking 'mavericks' all the way.
So yes, Blair did use the 'he-cheated-on-his-wife' card with her mom. Well, I guess she's just being protective. I wonder though, if Cyrus looked more Gregory Peck, would she have done this? Still, I'm not compelled to feel anything. I need more drama everyone!
And haller Jenny. Instead of telling her to stop. Grab the damn clothes and run girl! She only poured gas on the top layer, put out the fire and make a run for it! Don't just stand there screaming, it won't help! And apparently, Nate isn't here to stop, drop and roll over your dresses. Think woman!
But really, winning moment is Dorota fangirling over Cyndi Lauper. I have to admit, the cameo was a little weird (even more than Lisa Loeb), but I guess the folks over at the CW have close ties to her record label, thus the appearance. Too weird. But Blair did look amazing in her white overly ruffly top. I loved it.
Sending the story on Chuckles isn't going to help your case though. Thanks for the sweet afterthought, but you're still plotting on bringing down their family so no points for you Humphrey. What happened to our moral compass? Is this the character arc you're really taking?! I want action for you, but not this way.
And how hot is Chuck's mother?!? We finally see her! That still shot of her is pretty damn hot. I'm so happy Bart and Chuck get to bond though, even for just a bit. I cannot imagine them at a hockey game though, but hey that's better than nothing.
and EMANCIPATION? Really?! Can't you just wait till Rufus takes you back? Apparently, Dan's already convinced him. You don't have a job, a house, anything! Do you really think you can afford to be emancipated right now?! You're not Mariah Carey. Go back home J!!!
But wait, good morning UES-iders and they're 'back together' again! And take note it's November and Serena doesn't bother to change out of her nightie and just puts on a coat to have fun and frolic in Central Park. I swear this girl deserves what craziness comes her way, because she's crazy too.
Over-all, a jampacked episode of mostly nothing really for me. It felt like a filler in the sense that it was needed to bring all the characters along their respective arcs, but nothing crazy to keep me really hooked. Then again, I'll watch it again and maybe if I'm concentrating more, I'll find the gems that I usually do. What happens at Thanksgiving next week? I'm not sure but what I'm sure of is that Nate should be back. The episode isn't named after him for nothing, right?
