Gossip Girl is visiting relatives in prison
Tough dilemma for your favorite blogger, folks. On the one hand, you’ve got a new episode of Gossip Girl. On the other, you’ve got my beloved Geeeeeeeeeeeeeee-men squaring off against the hated Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football. Fortunately, kickoff was around 8:30, and Elisha was victimized by two straight tipped-ball interceptions, so I didn’t feel too bad about watching GG and flipping back to the game during commercials. After all, you, my precious readers, haven’t had a Gossip Girl diary in a long time! And I love you people! Let’s get to it.
:00 Good thing the Giants started the game with two interceptions and are down 10–0. Makes me feel better about watching Gossip Girl instead.
:01 I feel like a lot of people like these Blair dream sequences, but I can’t stand them.
:02 God, Serena gets around. Who is this guy, just some dude that lives in her building?
Blair to Serena, the morning after: “Yesterday’s dress with today’s shame all over it.” Your dream sequences may be lame, but your lines are divine.
:04 Nate suggested breakfast at Tom’s. Does he mean Monk’s?
Haha! How could Juliet possibly get caught at the same prison as Nate’s dad? That seems like the exact type of thing she would never do, if she’s actually the Machiavellian schemer we’re to believe she is.
:05 Classic GG. The last guy Serena sleeps with turns out to be her new professor. It was either that, or he would have been Lily’s new business partner, or Rufus’s manager. I should have known, right?
:10 Jenny to Blair: “I’m not looking to destabilize your social order.” Of course you are, Jenny! And you might fool some people with this contrite, humble façade, but I know better. You’re the worst.
:12 What are the odds that Jenny and Juliet eliminate each other’s maps for keeps? Is that too much to ask?
Blair to Serena, upon learning that Serena is sleeping with her new professor: “Cab guy? What are the odds?” One could do worse than have Blair Waldorf as an audience stand-in.
:14 B’s minion: Nothing could be more fun than bottle blonde recon. Are Blair’s writers feeding lines to her flunkies?
:16 Chuck to Dan, after being asked to leave the Humphrey residence: “How can I argue with big brother. I’ll just take these blueprints Lily left for me, and let you get back to your Hemingway complex.” Swoon.
:25 I like Dan, but his fondness for Jenny is a huge character flaw.
:26 I can’t wait for Juliet’s love for Nate to lead to her undoing. Of course, that won’t happen. No, they’ll put her in a few moderately redeeming situations, and her brother will be cast in stark relief as the ultimate villain, and we’ll be forced to sympathize with Juliet. I CAN wait for that.
:28 I’m a big Tim Gunn guy.
:30 Chuck to Dan, wrt Dan’s murder-suicide suggestion: “So dramatic. You should be a writer.” Best character on TV!
:33 So, how about that local sports breasts?
:35 How come Lily never asks “Serena, how come you always dress like a whore?”
Or “Why are you such a disappointment to me?”
B to Penelope: “This isn’t Congress. Accomplish something!” A seemingly timely but secretly evergreen topical joke!
:37 Tim Gunn, offering a second interview! What a guy!
:38 Prison Ben to Juliet, after jacking up the Captain: “Did you get my message?” This guy is wicked badass. Like, how did he send a text message from prison?
:46 Dan is right about Blair being right! Jenny should go back to Hudson!
Lily to Serena: “I know you would move back to classes more your speed eventually.” A shame this is just a reverse psychology scheme, and not lily actually calling her daughter out for being a wayward tart.
The Captain got beat with a dictionary. That’s kinda funny.
:49 Good thing I missed that long Dez Bryant punt return for a touchdown.
:54 Serena is putting off a relationship with the guy she just slept with in order to impress her mother? Way to take one for the team.
:55 Chuck to Blair, on a possible détente: “If we keep going, we’ll both wind up dead. And I like myself too much to let that happen.”
Nice to see Chuck and Blair recognizing that they probably broke up for completely wacky and improbable reasons.
:57 No no no no. There will be NO sympathy for Juliet. I don’t care how much she cries!
:59 Um, what the hell is going on with this show?!
