Gossip Girl: “The Grandfather”

March 26, 2009

Warning: Spoilers for the Gossip Girl season 2 episode "The Grandfather," aired 3/23/09!

Here were the highlights:

  • "Do you know how exhausting it has been being Blair Waldorf for the past 18 years.  I was headed for a quarter life crisis …"  Hee.  Love it.
  • Lily’s 2 page list.  HI-larious.  Serena: "It’s gonna take him 20 minutes to get to the 90s alone!"  Hee.  Lily: "I’m not ashamed of my past … at least not most of it."  Serena: "I think you should take a look at his little black book before you splash the yellow pages on him."  Sound advice Serena, sound advice.
  • "Grandfather can be very persuasive."  Yes, yes he can.  Hurrah! Nate finally got an interesting storyline!  I really found myself fascinated by the family dynamic of the Vanderbilt branch of his family.
  • Chuck and Serena confront sleazy Carter.  Chuck fails miserably, but Serena pulls out the blackmail.  Serena for the win!!!  Carter: "I’m just a symptom of the disease, not the cause."  So true.  But more importantly, what happened in San Torini? Hmmm.
  • Nate and Blair reconnect at his grandfather’s party … and then they take it back to Blair’s.   Hmmm.  I actually really liked the Nate-Blair scenes in this episode.  Shocker!  When I saw the preview, I was really disappointed that the show was going in this direction, but this shows how much I know!  Chuck, however, did not enjoy this new development as much as I do.  Oh what will Chuck do now?  Methinks Chuck will get serious about winning back his beloved now.  But will it work?
  • In conclusion, this was a game changing episode.  I actually loved Serena … and dare I say it, I even liked Nate.  And Carter was actually right about something.  Fun, fun, fun.  Now what trouble will Blair get herself into next week?
