Gossip Girl Watch: Stolen Boyfriends And Snowflake Balls

What better way to fill our post-Thanksgiving, pre-Christmas days than with a little Gossip Girl drama. The Jenny Humphrey, Nate Archibald, Vanessa Abrams love triangle finally comes to a head -again. Chuck Bass and Blair Waldorf are still trying to resist each other's poisoned charms. Lily Bass and Rufus Humphrey are regretting the missed opportunity to hook up -again, and Serena van der Woodsen and Dan Humphrey are still pretending they don't have feelings for each other. Here are Blindie's top ten WTF moments from Gossip Girl's "It's a Wonderful Lie" episode:

  1. Vanessa locks lips with Nate right after listening to Jenny wistfully wonder what became of her almost fling with him. Vanessa is busted when a photo of the PDA ends up on the Gossip Girl blog.
  2. Aaron Rose's ex-girlfriend Lexi disses his photo exhibit featuring Serena, comparing it to a GAP ad. Hey! We like GAP ads. Lexi's pretention reaches an all time high when she orders a cup of Kopi Luwak coffee, you know, that coffee that's passed through the digestive system of the Asian Palm Civet -basically coffee beans that are shat out by cats!
  3. Chuck and Blair choose each other's dates for the Snowflake Ball to prove they know each other's desires and what does Chuck want as a reward? Blair's most prized possession -her maid Dorota!
  4. Vanessa confesses to Nate that she stole his love letter to Jenny and that she never felt like this way about anyone before, blah blah. While we love the ethnically ambiguous Jessica Szohr as Vanessa we are not liking her man-grubbing storyline.
  5. Jenni conspires with Blair's back up girls to pull a Carrie on Vanessa and humiliate her at the Snowflake Ball with a see-through dress. Really? This is the Upper East Side where maids are traded in bets. You gotta come harder than a see-through dress.
  6. Nate had the nerve to tell off Jenni for sabotaging Vanessa claiming he's glad they didn't hook up because she's not the Jenny he thought he knew. Hmm, we wonder if Jenny knew that Nate was once pimping himself out to a married woman?
  7. It's Bizarro world again on Gossip Girl as Chuck and Blair dig up cheap knock-offs of themselves for each other to date. When they catch their doubles hooking up Blair laments "even our doppelgangers can work it out!"
  8. Serena and Dan spend the entire night at the Snowflake Ball pretending not to care the other will bed their date after the party.
  9. Lily and Rufus find themselves face to face once again, and regretting another missed opportunity to be together, again.
  10. Bart Bass in an accident?! After seeing snippets of the next episode it's clear there's a funeral scene so it's safe to assume that Bart is dead and the Bass empire will now be under the rule of Chuck. Looks like Lily won't be needing that divorce anymore.

Gossip Girl Watch: Spying On An Upper East Side Thanksgiving

Nothing says Thanksgiving like secrets and lies right? No? Well then, you must not live on Gossip Girl's Upper East Side where family dysfunction means extortion, kidnapping, and surveillance. Here are Blindie's top ten moments on Gossip Girl's "Magnificent Archibalds" episode:

  1. Bart and Lily Bass discover Jenny Humphrey has been crashing at their house when they return from their vacation on Necker Island. You know, that tiny island in the British Virgin Islands owned by Virgin billionaire Sir Richard Branson.
  2. Blair Waldorf calls Aaron Rose a young Big Love Bill Paxton because of his open relationship with Serena van der Woodsen.
  3. Dan Humphrey runs into Aaron at the grocery store - awkward! The two indie dudes compare notes about Serena and Dan spills the beans about her bad girl past.
  4. Eric van der Woodsen cracks into his stepfather Bart's safe, with the help of Chuck Bass of course, and finds gold bars (what else?) and surveillance files on himself, Serena and his mother Lily. After reading his mother's file he discovers she was institutionalized as a teenager just like him.
  5. We just love all the love being shown to the hired help! Lily asks Eric, "how did you get so wise?" he replies, "the nanny," Chuck credits his hot au pair Gina for changing his life, and the kicker is when Blair makes her maid Dorota follow her around the city in full housekeeping uniform!
  6. Vanessa Abrams and Chuck team up to warn Nate Archibald about the FBI and his dad's plan to kidnap him and extort money from his rich grandparents, the Vanderbilts. Wait, Nate's grandparents are the Vanderbilts? Anderson Cooper's Vanderbilt's? And Nate's dad is going to kidnap him to extort money out of them? Geez, high school is rough on the Upper East Side!
  7. Eric finds out his mother was in an institution at just about the same age he was put away.
  8. And after all that drama, Nate asks Vanessa "can we get together sometime to Vanessa?" This guy sure does pull a lot of girls for a broke son of a criminal!
  9. Lily ends up at the Humphrey house for Thanksgiving dinner for a second year in a row! Geez, how many seasons do we have to wait before Rufus and Lily get married?!
  10. Vanessa stoops to Bass level and reads Jenny's love letter from Nate. Ah, Brooklyn girl gone bad!

Gossip Girl Watch: Blair Turns 18, Jenny Gets Emancipated, And Serena Muses

It's celebration and emancipation time on the Upper East side as Blair turns 18, the Bass Enterprise turns 20 and Jenny continues down her Machiavellian road to fame and fortune! Here are Blindie's top ten moments:

  1. The diminuitive character actor Wallace Shawn guest stars as Eleanor Waldorf's new boyfriend Cyrus Rose, and he just happens to be artist Aaron Rose's father. We love that Blair has to chant "I am Grace Kelly. Grace Kelly is me," in order to tolerate his brashness and hugs.
  2. Jenny's partner in fashion crime Agnes, played by Willa Holland, parties way more than she works and practically sabotages their investor meetings by arguing over creative control of the clothing line.
  3. Serena is seduced by artsy Aaron Rose with text messages and maps leading to romantic places like the Cloisters. And despite Blair's warning Serena poses for his art installation only to find out that she is just another muse in his painter's palette of pretty girls. We have to admit the Times Square Jumbotron kiss was romantic!
  4. Bart Bass doesn't have time for his son Chuck but agrees to have Dan Humphrey shadow him for two days a week to learn the business. Bart even invites Dan to the Rangers' hockey game that Chuck gave him tickets for as an anniversary gift!
  5. Cyndi Lauper shows up at Blair's birthday party and even the maid Dorota is starstruck! We are loving Cyndi's new song Bring Ya To The Brink!
  6. Dan was ready to sell his soul and his story about Chuck Bass' love starved childhood and the secret to Bart Bass' fortune -insurance collected on an arsoned midtown building in the mid-1980s, but then his conscious kicks in, again!
  7. Jenny ditches party girl Agnes and sets up her own contract deal, but when Agnes finds out she goes ballistic dumps Jenny's dresses in the grabage and like Angela Bassett in Waiting To Exhale lights it on fire!
  8. Blair has lunch with her mom's new boyfriend Cyrus in an attempt to learn some incriminating information on him and ultimately breaks up the relationship. When Cyndi Lauper shows up, Blair has a "change of heart" (that was a Cyndi Lauper reference folks!) and tries to patch things up, only to realize that Cyrus was manipulating her too!
  9. Bart Bass finally has a heart to heart talk with Chuck and admits that he doesn't blame him for his mother's death but finds it hard to get close to Chuck because he is always reminded of her.
  10. Jenny Humphrey is homeless again when Agnes kicks her out! Good thing she's about to get emancipated from her parents so she can sign those big fashion contracts on her own.
