Is this Gossip Girl or One Tree Hill? Why is Nate Archibald squatting at his foreclosed home and Chuck Bass buying a socially-conscious piece of real estate in Brooklyn to help out Vanessa. Oh wait, Chuck bought the property as part of a plan to bed Blair, and Nate still has the family house in the Hamptons. Phew, for a second we thought the Upper East Side was turning into Bizarro World!

Here’s a round-up of the most bizzaro moments:

  1. Blair enlists Chuck to take down Vanessa Abrams by seducing her, and when he calls the bet off Blair ups the stakes by offering herself up as a prize.
  2. Dan finds out that trust fund Nate is practically homeless and sleeping on the floor at his empty townhouse. And in true goody two-shoe form, Dan moves the poor little rich kid into his Brooklyn loft by the time the show is over.
  3. There’s another black character on the show! (the other one being Nicole Fiscella’s character Isabel Coates, who has all but disappeared this season) And Chuck bonds with him! Too bad the character, who is named Horace, is that stereotypical old wise sage reminiscent of a Morgan Freeman character.
  4. Serena turns the bitch switch on with her mom as she embarasses her in front of the press at their publicity house-warming party by bringing up her brother’s drug past.
  5. Chuck allows Vanessa to see his softer side, and even drops his Carlton-inspired accent for a moment.
  6. Eric van der Woodsen is so scandalous! He’s gay! And he used to be such a raging coke head that he once left nose candy on all “the smooth, shiny surfaces” in the house!
  7. Emmy award-winning dialogue like Chuck telling Blair, “If you thought that was long, you have no idea what you’re in for” right before he seduces her.
  8. Blair refuses to say those “three little words, eight letters” to Chuck, even though she wanted him to say it in the season premiere.
  9. Blair gets jealous when she catches Chuck and Vanessa getting close.
  10. Chuck turns the tables on Blair and leaves her in the throes of passion with this priceless parting remark, “I’ve chased you long enough, now it’s time you chase me.” Game on!

The second season of Gossip Girl just keeps getting better with each episode: The love triangles have turned into full on incest circles, and the girls are back to school and back to their dirty tricks.

Here are Blindie’s Top Ten moments:

  1. Blair’s ethnic sidekick Nicole Fiscella as Isabel Coates is back! And she’s actually talking and scheming!
  2. Dan Humphrey’s has moved on – before Serena! And with some new girl named Amanda!
  3. Blair intimidates the Dan’s new girl Amanda and tries to bring her into “the fold” to prevent her from getting close to S’s ex!
  4. Cougar Duchess tries to bribe Vanessa to stay out of Nate’s life with a $5,000 check! And when Vanessa returns the check she catches the Duchess in the throes of passion with her stepson Lord Marcus!
  5. Dan advises Vanessa to seek Blair’s help in turning the tables on the Duchess: “Google revenge and you get BlairWaldorf.com”
  6. Lily, whose wedded bliss is fast wearing off, shows up unannounced at Rufus’ loft with a bottle of wine and a DVD of Pretty in Pink in hand. Then his date shows up! Sorry Lily, this Jake Ryan is taken!
  7. Blair’s bitch clique takes harassement to a new level when they throw lye on Amanda’s hair! And…little Jenny Humphrey’s next!
  8. Poor naive Vanessa almost ruins Blair’s scheme when she tries to take matters into her own hand by confronting Lord Marcus’ father about his tryst with Duchess Cougar. She should’ve just posted the photo on Gossip Girl !
  9. Serena finally flips her bitch switch and announces to the clique: “For now on everything goes through me.” And her first order as Queen Bee? Treat Dan Humphrey like a leper!
  10. And our FAVORITE moment…Finding out that Chuck Bass orchestrated new girl Amanda moving in on Dan to push Serena onto the Queen Bee throne in order to get back at Blair whom we all know he totally LOVES!
