Is anyone else totally upset at the lame excuse Blair (Leighton Meester) has for ending her love affair with Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick)? Accidents happen. She barely mourns the loss of her child and yet mourns her willful decision to exclude Chuck from her life? No wonder she has to go to church, no other institution would understand the level of crazy she’s at right now.
Is anyone else totally creeped out by that church dude and his perverted relationship with Beatrice? And I thought Nate’s (Chace Crawford) dates were bad. Now that you mention it, his little secret with Gossip Girl gets out when he shuts down Serena’s (Blake Lively) column, which Serena obviously finds out about and publishes herself. I’m not sure if Gossip Girl’s making a comeback, but at least we get a little closer to solving the mystery on Nate’s arch enemy: his cousin Tripp. Serena and Nate stage a video posted on Gossip Girl to get Tripp to come by and blame his wife only to realize this was all an intervention about their grandfather’s love.
As Nate’s story gets progressively interesting, it looks like there’s no room for Chuck to shine. He’s even more obsessed with Blair (I know, how is that even possible right?) and finding out why she randomly ran out on him when they just professed their undying love for each other. I understand where Blair is coming from about loving someone from afar, but for a protection measure? That’s a little lame. No, that’s a lot lame.
The best part of tonight’s episode is Blair’s bachelorete party at Panchitos in the West Village. She’s actually hit lower than 10th street to film this! So much for the blue Tiffany’s boxes and macarons, Blair gets silly off of frozen margaritas and tequila shots. I’ve never seen her this chilled out in the entire series. She even gets caught smoking a joint outside and mistakes the cops for strippers. I mean, Officier ‘Weiner’? I’m dying. See, surprises like this keep me holding on for better story lines. But we all know that won’t happen. I love the tiara, but it was too bad there weren’t penises on it.
Chuck and the creepy priest guy become BFFs when it comes to sabotaging Blair and Prince Louis’ marriage. But Beatrice looks like she’s turning sides, I mean, did anyone else notice they’re basically wearing the same makeup? Sisters cut from the same cloth! Let the best duo win and we’ll check out what happens next week at the altar. Or what doesn’t happen…
