OMFG Chuck and Blair!!!

OMFG you guys. I don't know why, but from the beginning of its new season, I was not super into Gossip Girl. The first couple of episodes were weak, with too many new characters (Blair and an undercover English Lord? Really? And Nate dating a married older woman who just happens to be that same Lord's stepmother? I liked that the first time it happened on The O.C.). I actually stopped watching GG, mostly because I had to many other television "commitments" and something had to slide. However, about three weeks ago I caught an episode preserved on my DVR because it seemed like the perfect way to begin my Saturday. What an episode!!! I'm now officially back on the GG train, and can't get enough of Chuck and Blair, Blair and Serena, Serena and Dan, and now (spoiler alert?) Nate and Jenny!!! OMFG!! Who saw that coming? (The answer is probably everyone, unless you're totally dense, but whatever. Still a good twist.)

This week's episode was no disappointment. I think that GG decided to stick to what it does best. I'm not alone among the Blogulator staff with my intense love for this show. As OHD told me, "Watch the ep so we can talk about it on the GG email thread, because the Chuck and Blair stuff will blow your mind!"

And blow my mind it did!!

There were a couple things that stood out in this week's episode. Jenny has reached the top and is quickly crashing, which seems to be her pattern. I really think that she's heading towards failure. I'm not sure what it is about her, but she just can't seem to make anything work. She starts with nothing, claws her way to the top, becomes overly arrogant and so makes some huge mistake, then is back to having nothing, and the cycle completes itself. Serena and Dan are hanging out, but I'm really glad that they are just friends, and I hope against hope that it stays that way. OF course, what stood out most in this episode was the intense chemistry between Chuck and Blair. Also, I like that artist guy, and hope he sticks around for awhile.

I don't want to waste time rehashing plot details, however, nor am I trying to create a total love fest. There are some things that I'm still not too thrilled about.

1. Jenny. She annoys me. Yes, I enjoy that she acts her age more than the other characters do, but it's an annoying age. Cut it out and grow up already, Jen. If you're going to make it in the fashion world, you're going to have to be less dumb.
2. Vanessa. I really don't care for her at all
3. Dan. I know I've talked about this before, but he is such a Brandon Walsh. You are not a great guy, Dan, and everyone around you should know that by now. I'm still not over how badly you treated Serena last season.
4. No Halloween Special?!?! WTF?

The one way in which I was MOST disappointment was the lack of a Halloween special this week. Lady Amy's Halloween themed post yesterday really made me want to blog about this most wonderful time of the year, something I know we've all been looking forward to. They could have done so many things. Here's what it might have looked like:

Blair is hosting an extravagant Halloween party. Everyone is in costume. Chuck shows up in a costume that compliments her own. Serena's costume maybe outshines Blair's in some way. Or...perhaps Serena can't even make it? Because she's required to go to the party hosted by her mom and Chuck's dad? Jenny of course makes her costume and does something stupid and embarrassing at the party, then leaves early with her model friends. Maybe she then gets busted for smashing local jack-o-lanterns. OR the writers could have gone the suspense/thriller route. Maybe at the party is some sort of escaped criminal, but because everyone is in costume, no one knows who he is...he's just the "mystery man" who of course Serena and Blair fight over, only to learn that he's a horrible killer. And Dan does something stupid but thinks he's saving the day. I hate Dan.

Here are some tips on how to dress as Blair and Chuck as Halloween this year.

Happy Halloween, everyone!

    I hope this new artist guy goes somewhere. He's totally cute - but in kind of a creepy way that I can't quite put my finger on.

    And Chuck and Blair - don't toy with me any longer! I suppose, though, if it all wrapped up nicely with those two there would be hardly anything left for us to write about - as Chuck points out.
