Gossip Girl Watch: Art And Unrequited Love
The Gossip Girl crew is up to their old tricks of scheming and hooking up with each other! And the new cutie on the scene, Aaron Rose played by John Patrick Amedori (of Stick it fame!), adds some much needed new blood to the romance drama.
Taylor Momsen must be having the best season ever as her character Jenny Humphrey goes from high school drop out to fashion intern to chic party girl all in the blink of an eye. Next week she’s a hot new breakout designer!
Here are Blindie’s top ten moments from Gossip Girl‘s “Pret-a-Poor-J” episode:
- Eleanor Waldorf convinces Jenny to remake her dress design so she can pass it off as a Waldorf original to the Barneys and Bendel buyers, but like a true teenager Jenny hangs out and turns in a sloppy piece of work.
- Jenny tells off Eleanor, takes back her designs and quits! All on the advice and prompting of her new friend Agnes who kept her out all night and ran off in the dress she was supposed to work on.
- Serena has found new artsy indie guy Aaron Rose to romance. Too bad he just rode away on his motorcycle with another girl! But we hear Amedori is signed up for at least three more episodes, plenty of time for him to get it on with Serena and make Dan jealous.
- More genius dialogue!: “Ever since Charlize Theron became the face of Dior I’ve been wanting to change my signature scent,” Blair tells Chuck; and “Unfortunately there was no hard evidence…literally,” Blair says of her failed attempt at turning Chuck on.
- Blair tries every trick in the book to seduce Chuck, including candles and even spilling a drink on his crotch, but alas her “itch” never gets scratched. They both decide to put off their love affair because “Chuck and Blair go to the movies” and “Chuck and Blair hold hands” just doesn’t sound right.
- Dan Humphrey coaches Blair as she tries to bed Chuck.
- Oh the irony, as Dan explains to Vanessa that Blair is humane and Vanessa tells Dan that Chuck is actually the human one.
- Jenny dances around in her bra with new bestie Agnes while Max the photographer snaps away on his camera. We can’t wait to see what blog those photos will turn up on!
- Nate walks in on a shirtless Jenny and her new friends, and like a knight in shining armour he whisks her away before she gets taken advantage of. Too late, she’s a minor who was just photographed in her undies -sounds like borderline child pornography to us!
- Jenny and Nate kiss! Is there anyone Nate hasn’t hooked up with?! Does Jenny have to take everything that was once Blair’s?
