Gossip Girl 5x16 review



Gossip Girl 5x16

Nate/Lola OTP. And this girl is a REAL Rhodes. She is GORGEOUS!

Please, someone explain this to me. WHERE IS THE SNOW IN NEW YORK? Last time I checked, NYC does NOT look like that in FEBRUARY! And the Hamptons only look that beautiful in summer! The show Revenge takes place in the Hamptons IN THE SUMMER. It’s supposed to look like that. IT IS FEBRUARY! IN NEW YORK. EPIC FAIL!

The world comes to an end when I side with Serena in B vs. S. I have NEVER, in my entire life ever sided with S in a B vs. S standoff.

I mean, she’s still my favorite…but, Blair Waldorf….*sighs*

CHUCK BASS RETURNS! OMG! I love that my Chuckles is BACK! That was great. And he knows about BD and Dan sent in the video. PLEASE! Fuck what Blair threatened..it’ll only make BD closer. Listen, let BD get closer if it means CHUCK BASS IS BACK! I’ll take it! And him and Alessandra were HOT HOT HOT!

I’m sorry, last time I heard, Eric was STILL IN NEW YORK for college. Like, I get Connor is on a show 10x as amazing as Gossip Girl, but, like, a reference at least?! THIS IS HIS GRANDMOTHER. Do you know how many times Eric has “stayed” with Cece throughout the seasons in an excuse to get rid of him? Ugh.

I’m so glad Ivy/Charlie thing came out. Probably the best thing about this episode was that hallway reveal. LOVELY! About damn time. I had to suffer through last season and the first half of this season to get to this LOVELY point. I’m ready!

BD makes no sense to me. I don’t care enough to mention anything. I’m just a bit WTF. If you want to pull this off and think you’re getting away with it. Whatever.

Blair IS confused. Her husband doesn’t care about her. (not surprising!) She loves Chuck, but doesn’t want to be with him because she made a promise to God. She needs to figure things out. She is confused. She doesn’t know what she’s feeling. Blah blah blah… It’ll end BC once she’s away from Louis. That is a given. If she wants to have an affair with Dan while married…

I’m only watching for Chuck, Lola, Nate, NL, and Georgina Sparks. (And Milo.) What do I care anymore.

I adore you and your review. yay!

Why did they have to kill off CeeCee? She was awesome and at her best when she was stirring the pot so to speak. :(

TBH I am so done with Blair/Dan as a viable pairing so thank you fandom + Saffron and co for ruining my all time favorite AU couple by making them cannon along with Chuck/Vanessa.

You know what I will never be on Serena's side about shit, sorry for the language! I still think her feelings for Dan came out of thin air; she didn't say that shit when gotten between Dan/Vanessa, cheated on Nate with Dan, cheated with Tripp + chose creepy!Ben over Dan. If her feelings had been building from a place of honesty then I could get behind her attitude but I don't. I realize that I sound like a total bitch here but I refuse to give her sympathy of any kind, the minute she read Dan's book + found out the real truth that she isn't his dream girl and all of his focus went to Blair Waldorf of all people + I just continue to side eye her. She will get Dan and then she will be bored again.

You know Dair being officially together doesn't bother me but I hated the way it happened, Blair is virtually destroyed and has been since season 2 + in the midst of her feelings for Chuck and tonight she basically said it again while on the phone with him again + Louie's marriage, dowry. If Blair was smart she would have never came back to NY until her marriage was over and she was single.

+ Dan has been checked out from Serena since mid season 4. I don't think there is a chance for them not even a little bit. I don't know if it is also because the actors have moved on and date other people now but I see no spark between them + Dan's hilarious douchey non reaction when she is pouring her heart out to Dan and he kinda coldly rejects her + the lying from both ends.

If this was done in season 4 with the W plot, and no Louie I could see it but I don't. TBH Dair right now is contrived.

yay! for Serena telling Ivy to leave though why not tell Carol the same since she was responsible for everything. One thing made me angry with the Serena/Ivy showdown, Serena pushed and pushed until the girl came back to NY but Ivy dug her own hole ultimately.

I think I am back to hating Dan again; his smug face when he told Chuck that he got her made me want to smack him repeatedly even if Chuck was sabotaging him with his manuscript. DB is on for now but when Blair finds out about the video shit will hit the fan!

Dear Dan, you are still a terrible writer. xoxoxo

Georgina for all of the awards, she and Chuck are the only ones acting like themselves these days.

If I were Lily I would have called the police on Carol/Ivy sick relative or not. Why is Rufus just sitting on this info and giving empathy looks at Ivy, half of season 5? How does these people still have money? I miss Bart/Llly, they were my stuffy UES OTP pairing hell I will even take
Lily/Russell from season 4, but he is in jail + that would mean Raina/Chuck siblings with an evil parent again. Though I am sure Bart shot Maya and killed her over PLL + torturing us about who A isn't. [I wish he would take out Paige too because her creepy come ones while Emily is half scared/insane worried about Maya was ricidulous + Aria/Ezra should be taken out in one swoop, so we don't have to listen to them whine anymore about boring, illegal relationship.]

Nate/Charlie, were adorable and the real Charlie is super pretty + I want him to say away from Serena. I kinda wanted them back reunited with her or Carter but I don't trust Saffron.

SD is the biggest joke on the show. I hate them so much. Never gonna happen. Show's gonna end CB + S, N, D alone or Nate/Lola. I'm happy either way. (or maybe Nate will get Lily and Vanessa/Rufus. They've done everything else.)

I hate how everyone keeps THREATENING to go to the cops. FUCKING HELL! JUST CALL THE DAMN COPS ALREADY. Stupid, piece of shit show. DO NOT HALF-ASS IT! CALL THE COPS! Ugh. 3aq5w4serdtoikpl[0-rogf

Hell, That W plot COULD have worked. But even then, it was all CHUCK. DB should have stayed in AU land. I don't know why BD are happy. In what universe is this GOOD for BD? ROTFLMAO forever.

LB is my OTP of adults, EVERYWHERE. I miss them. *bawl* And Rufus is the most useless person in the WORLD. LMAO. He's going to buy her jewelry for Valentine's Day? WITH WHOSE MONEY? Her own. BART's? LMAO. You fail at life, Rufus. Could you, like, PLEASE go to Barcelona now? You'll be much more appreciated there. (At least by me.)

LMAO. Rufus should just hand her over flannel shirts and waffles for every celebration, as that's his one distinctive 'thing'. ;)
I am convinced they saddled Lily with him because it was the one way to keep him around as living furniture.

As for Dair, it stands to GG as Delena stands to Vampire Diaries - aka the ship that has no real chance in the hell as anything more than time-filler until the real main couple is reunited, but it still gets pimped hard for hilarity's sake.

I consider myself lucky to be de-sensitivized where CW shows are concerned.
The endgame of this sounds all pretty predictable - CB together, Serena and Nate or with new other chracters or, again, realizing finally that they are different versions of the same person (see the resulgence of Danlove now he is into Blair that mirrors Nate's resurgence of blair-love when she was into chuck), Dan alone because the 'artist is alone as he observes the public'. Lonely boy until the very end, LOL.

Although i still wonder why we should buy he is a real writer when his only published works are based on biographies of his muse-of-the-moment. He cracks me up.

I love your icon skysamuelle. Awesome! Can you believe I haven't shipped anyone from Vampire Diaries since last year. Damon/Stefan/Elena triangle is a borefest on both sides and I did have a soft spot for Stefan/Elena with Stefan/Bonnie and Damon/Bonnie were also up there also but the writing on the show has me uncomfortable, it is awful + basically I want the brothers and Elena away from Bonnie. Right now I am not even shipping it in fannon because the show sucks so much and does not know how to write romance. I didn't even like Jeremy/Bonnie together but I am rooting for them now, wtf! is wrong with me??

Haha! Delena = Dan/Blair = Dawson/Joey, if we really want to be evil about it. LOL! You know I did ship Dan/Blair in fannon, as an AU ship but the show has ruined them horribly together and apart.

+ you should hear the BD stans gloating at IMDB making it hard for everyone who ships CB still, Nair, or noone. I just sit back and laugh thinking there is no way in hell this ship is gonna be OTP no matter what the show tries to sell us bitches! and it is hilarious that you compared Damon/Elena when I am still thinking of last week when Damon basically blurted at the ball but "I love you!" and Elena was like oh bitch please! I love Stefan....it is only Stefan. On one hand even I went wow! Elena bitchy but thinking about it now has me laughing since that is DB right now with Chuck on the side, yes! Blair likes Dan but yet every other episode it is "I love you Chuck" but we can't be together for the greater good...... oh yeah Gossip Girl that's true wuv! alright!

I feel this way about Dean/Castiel too from Supernatural, don't know if you watch the show dude but the pairing is a slash fannon one. After season 6, Castiel botched Sam's soul [Dean's brother!] and did all of this shitty stuff yet the creepy stans still root for them and keep saying that Supernatural will redeem him ad nausem so will Dean! I am like nope, Dean tried to kill his ass because Sam is walking around seeing Lucifier everywhere he goes because of him + they are basically mad at the winchesters for being mean to the angel.

In true spn style, I wouldn't be surprised if he is killed off toward the end of the season and if not this year it would be during the last season. I will add Destiel to your list of couples/friendships no chance in hell of being chummy with each other in any form.

LMAO. CW shows make it hard to ship anything. Mostly because they try to turn everything in a soap opera and end up wasting all decent plotlines in the process - yet another thing GG and TVD have in common.

I hold on my pretty icon in hopes of less boring times but right now I dislike everyone in tvd but Caroline and Bonnie, which pisses me off because Stefan used to be my second favorite character and after 315 I just want to cover him in gasoline and burn him along with Damon. And Jeremy, I confess, because his chracter frustrates me a lot when Anna-less. ;)Sorry.

My fannish life right now has its saving grace in Once Upon a Time, and that's it.

Dair stans can gloat all they want- I won't begrudge them for liking Dair, but for claiming it is 'soulmates love'- that just makes me to laugh so hard because Blair and Dan can be compatible intellectually but it's a long, long way from what Chair has had since S1.

I just don't understand what they see and how they can constantly belittle chair to reinforce their illusion. Bha... time will show us we were right.

I just find it sad when shows can't write for happy couples and must use all those diversions to drag out the inevitable reunions.

Also, all this crappy writing in GG and TVD killed my fanfiction muse and THAT just pisses me off more.

I watch SPN only at random times but Dean/Castiel always puzzled me as much as people shipping Dean/Sam... and about the list doesn't forget to add Caroline/Klaus, which has a surprisingly large following even if it makes no sense in no rational universe.

Fandom truly can be a looney bin sometimes...

Love Once Upon A Time but show is starting to frustrate me with the Snow/Charming ship. Snow/Charming trumps David/Mary any day of the week + Emma, Henry are starting to grate to. I don't ship anything I just watch for Rumple, Queen and everyone else.

I admit I ship Sam/Dean from a fannon standpoint because of the way they were raised and had no one else besides their father or random other characters in their life so yeah I could see that but not in cannon though + with all of their messy history which is farfetched too but semi plausible. I don't do incest in tv shows but with Sam/Dean, the hard life, unique dynamic of the relationship + the crazy codependence if written the right way it woudn't be ridiculous but I ship het also in spn fandom also and the sacrifices they make that a normal sibling ship wouldn't just throws me sometimes. [Please Don't side eye me!]

As incestuous as Dean/Sam are I would choose them tbh and yes! I know am going to hell with gasoline panties on but I only see it as fiction but if the brothers had girlfriends/wives I would like this too so they can be happy finally.

Dean/Castiel, I feel nothing for them at all. The have chemistry but I can't take this ship seriously and especially when fans pair up Sam/Castiel just riciduolus. Thankfully Supernatural is a non ship show so the fandom doesn't have ships wars but unfortnately characters wars. Sam vs Dean vs every other random guest star. Every time I see Sassy/Destiel I always think not in a billion years! abort! abort!

Word on VD! The only time I like Stefan this year is when he is trolling Damon/Elena and breaking up their talks + the assholish tendencies when dealing with Klaus but other than that I hate everyone whose name is not Matt, Caroline, Bonnie, Jeremy, and sometimes Elijah.

ugh Caroline/Klaus, I hate Klaus and I want him to go away and take his family with him except for Elijah. Klaus is a creeper and after everything he put Caroline through; she wouldn't even want to breathe the same air as him.

You know I actually came around to Jeremy again but I think I only root for Jeremy/Bonnie is because of the friendship. I like them platonically speaking. I dug AJ too until the ghost arc which basically cancelled out his other ships like they weren't important. I like all of Jeremy ships Vicki/Jeremy, Anna/Jeremy and Bonnie/Jeremy [friendship!]

No sideeyeing you don't worry. I kinda ship Cesare/Lucrezia from Borgias for similiar reasons than you do with DEan/Sam. ;)

Also, lately i'm so obsessed with Rumpel/Belle from OUAT. Definitely my OTP for the show as Snow/Charming is great but i cannot completely get into MaryM/David. R/B instead... has everything in my eyes. EVERYTHING.

Rumple/Belle are the epitome of a tragic fairytale pairing; the whole thing was so dark + Regina locked her away in a mental institute is just crazy.

Lmao! I agree. I feel like such a fool for even liking them in the first place, god! Blair, I have feelings for Dan but switch oh Chuck, I love you......but I can't be with you until blah blah blah. I see why you sided with Serena. geez [see my post at the bottom for further mocking!]

This show is ricidulous and I shall watch it until the end + mock it at the same time when and if CB get together there will be those same 15 Dair posters raging that DB was epic and true while intellectual conversations. oh please! bitches she could have this with any dude. Nate, Louie, Chuck, Carter + random dude from Lying Games tv show that hit on her in that one episode not to mention creepy! uncle Jack.

As a matter of fact, Blair HAS had this -this being the consolation prize- with each one of those dudes. The difference is that now Blair quit pretending she is not going to revert to Chuck at some point... uahah, shall we call this a progress?
shopgirl318
Feb. 21st, 2012 11:12 pm (UTC)
LOL! nope. I call it progress when Blair is not being assisnated as a character every 5 minutes though I do appreciate that Blair isn't playing the whole "I don't love Chuck!" but I really do secretly. gasp!

I just wish never Louie came to NY or that she called off the wedding like a sane person would. This can't be good for her dowry; a fling that probably won't even last.

I just don't understand why Blair is not scheming to bring that royal family down and get out of this immaculately since that would be the IC thing for her to do, instead of having an haffair and losing any leverage se might gain in divorce proceedings. Blair Waldrof from S1 or 2 or 3 was way, way smarter than this.
shopgirl318
Feb. 22nd, 2012 02:22 am (UTC)
I don't either. Even the IMDB board said this; if this was pre strike Blair, she wouldn't even be in this situation in the first place. Royalty or not she would have checked everyone even if she was wrong.

Feb. 22nd, 2012 02:27 am (UTC)
THIS.

Wrong or not, she would dange on their social graves and smiled while doing it. Now... she has been neutered?

I didn't see much of this episode(I was switching between GG and PPL), but I agree with a lot of what you said.

The only things I liked: Nate and Lola(loved how she went in on Carol!), Dorota locking S and B in the dining room, and, of course, Chuck! I mean, sure, I like how he's all noble and whatnot--he did change his mind about ruining Dan--but apparently, he's not so noble that he'll stand for someone he cares about(Blair)being betrayed and lied to. So, not that he knows about the video, what's gonna happened next? I know what I hope will happen!

Blair....*sigh* I just don't know. "I love you, Chuck, you're the only one....but we can't be together because God. And a dowry. Oh, no, really, don't pay it off, I'll endure my sham marriage for a year, then we can be together, you know, as equals. Wait for me? Oh, but while you're waiting, I'm gonna have a little thing with my best friend's ex, knowing damn well that: one, she still loves him, and two, I wouldn't stand for it if she ever touched you. But I do love you, Chuck!" *eyeroll* Also, are we now supposed to believe that Dan had never really loved Serena? It had been Blair the whole time? Come on, now.

Poor CeCe. *sniffles* I did like that Blair was there for Serena, at the hospital. Shame that Blair wouldn't let Serena do the same for her.

BTW: Eric is still in London with Jenny, IIRC. Or did I miss something?

I swear this show makes no more sense. What is what with this show, I don't know x_x Can Bart please make his grand reappearance as A and send evil texts out? He can give people leather glove matches and cut Humphrey's hair without him knowing it. He can show Georgina how to really stalk people. He could bring Spencer into the UES and introduce her to Chuck.

This is it; I have completely lost it. Bart Bass is A. This is the only truth I believe in!
shopgirl318
Feb. 21st, 2012 11:17 pm (UTC)
You have me believing that Bart = A also. LOL! Bart shot Maya and killed her over PLL + torturing us about who A isn't. [I wish he would take out Paige too because her creepy come ones while Emily is half scared/insane worried about Maya was ricidulous + Aria/Ezra should be taken out in one swoop, so we don't have to listen to them whine anymore about boring, illegal relationship.]

Damn this show! I still think he bribed Mona and Bart/Allison are the main A, exposing secrets and calling bitches out since 2010.
