I am so late with this, but I promise, the boob bows and floral tents are worth the wait.
Plotwise, I’m not sure this episode was, though: This show was doing a whole thing where Unlikely Media Mogul Elizabeth Hurley wanted to take down Gossip Girl, so Nate got someone to hack into Gossip Girl and find a list of tips sent in to her, and the identities of the senders. This led to all these scenes where Serena and Blair and others were stressing over people finding out how many tips they’d sent in, and later, an intimate moment in which S and B giggled guiltily to each other about which of them had sent more. EXCEPT, Serena had turned down UMM Elizabeth Hurley’s request that she be a society blogger because of how Gossip Girl had ruined lives, and then AGAIN in this episode Serena was whining about how much pain Gossip Girl causes and how she needs to be ruined RUINED I TELL YOU. Here’s an idea: Stop sending her tips, hypocrite. Also, Chuck and Blair decided to get back together and tell Frenchy-pants Prince Louiiiiiiis about their true love, so they got into a limo that the paparazzi was chasing on motorcycles — because Serena’s Fake Cousin Charlie tipped off Gossip Girl so that it would ruin her party and thus HER ex-boyfriend couldn’t show up and reveal her true identity — and then the car crashed, and it was all very uncomfortably Princess Diana, in a way that felt rather gross and inappropriately trivializing. And Blair is supposedly awake — no word about the baby, although I had assumed this was their way out of that story, which also is kind of icky — but Chuck’s condition is making people cry and that was our cliff-hanger. My prediction is that this will flip the coin once more and give him Blair-related amnesia so that now she loves him and he doesn’t remember her, so she never tells Louis that she was going to leave him, and then suddenly on her wedding day Chuck. Will. Remember. I have read no spoilers; that’s just a guess. But if it comes true then I will reward myself with a cookie.
Let’s check out the clothes.
