Gossip Girl: Season 4 Episode 1 ‘Belles de Jour’

September 15, 2010 1 comment

Good morning, Upper-East siders, Gossip Girl is back! And now we can finally appreciate how much we’ve missed her. But let’s get down to business, shall we?

After that tumultuous finale last May that left us all reeling, we could see that Gossip Girl had a lot of work to do – S and B have fled to Paris to get over their respective men  using retail therapy, Nate has taken Chuck’s ‘little black book’ to get over his issues using sexual therapy, Dan is stuck in Brooklyn (what else is new) taking care of ‘his’ baby with Georgina, Jenny has fled to Hudson (good riddance), and Chuck has been busy getting shot on the streets of Prague (probably as a well-deserved punishment for having sex with the racoon-eyed Jenny. Like, talk about EW!)

We’ll start out with our two favourite Queen Bees, S and B, living it up a Paris. Well, almost. Blair is being her usual jealous self towards Serena, who is flirting with everything that has a pulse and French accent. S convinces B that her French amour will come, and B decides she just needs to get over the Bass-tard (who slept with the racoon-Humphrey, did I mention EW?!). It just so happens that that very same day, she meets a handsome young man who appears to be a member of the Monaco royal family, the Grimaldis, and he wants to take our B out to dinner. Surprised? Of course, B decides to bring S along too. Duh.

But because this is Gossip Girl, Blair finds out that her date is only the chauffeur and Serena’s date is the real royal. And if it weren’t such a petty reason we probs would feel a lot sorrier for old B. It gets even worse for her when she discovers S isn’t going to Brown like planned – instead, she’s going to Columbia, with Blair. (Well, duh. We can’t have the star of the show in another state.)

So Blair does a Blair-freak out, and ends up pushing S into a fountain because she wants to be somewhere where she won’t always be in Serena’s shadow. But Blair then discovers that actually, her perfectly kindly chauffeur date actually was the Royal Prince, and he had been testing her to see if she was just using him to go out with a Prince. Oops. Blair decides to beg for Serena’s forgiveness, blaming the whole thing on Chuck (a useful excuse. I mean, EW.), and of course S accepts. The two queen bees are united again. Almost.

As for Papa Humphrey, we discover he’s been keeping his little, um, son, a secret from everyone except for Nate, who is too busy having sex to really care. This little happy family of Dan, Georgina, and baby Milo have apparently been living together all summer until Vanessa turns up unexpectedly, spoiling the fun. “Georgina?! You can’t trust one thing that comes out of her mouth!” What? Our Georgie, lying? No, never. In fact, Dan is so trusting of his baby-mama, he hasn’t even taken a paternity test, although our favourite hottie-dork has been smart enough not to sign the birth certificate.

And of course our favourite troublemaker has some monkey-business going on (with the Russians…). She ends up crashing Lily’s little get-together wielding Milo and is all “um, your son has a BABY.” Rufus and co are all “um, NO, he’s so not the father,” but Georgie has a super-convincing piece of paper proving that it is, in fact, Dan’s baby. So there you have it. Although Rufus for a moment seems to be the only sane person on the Upper-East side, advising Dan to do his own paternity test, as “this sounds like one of Georgina’s schemes” (YEAH IT DOES), but Dodo-Dan decides to sign the birth certificate anyway. And the next day Georgie bails on this baby-Daddy. With a passport and suitcase in tow. Leaving behind her child. Uh-oh.

Meanwhile, Nate has been doing his Nate thing that he seems to do every summer – have sex with lots of blonde women. Finally he meets someone resembling human instead of robot (at least vaguely), called Juliet, so they go for coffee together. But what the unassumingly  innocent Nate doesn’t know is that she’s  some kind of creepy clothing thief (and more robot-y than we realised), and even more psycho than that – she has weird stalkerish photos of the G-Gang tacked up on her wall, along with a computer screen open to Gossip Girl… has the infamous secret source been revealed? (My guess is not, but hey, that’s just me.)

Finally, onto the final piece in our puzzle, the Chuck. Lily has just found out that… his dead body washed up in Pairs. Oh, no! As in, no, not really. He was shot, and lay dying on the streets of Prague. It was pretty touch-and-go there for a while… we weren’t sure if he was going to make it… but thankfully Fleur Delacour from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire was conveniently on the scene to nurse the Bass back to health. Oh, and randomly take him to Paris. Suprise!

That’s all for the gang tonight… see you next time, XOXO

GOSSIP GIRL – Predictions for Tonight’s Finale *Spoilers*

May 17, 2010 Leave a comment

Gossip Girl – although critics are (rightfully?) saying this season hasn’t quite been up to par, tonight’s episode of Gossip Girl is undoubtedly a hugely anticipated finale by its fans.

We’ve had Ausiello saying that the episode is “really, really good” (http://ausiellofiles.ew.com/2010/05/10/gossip-girl-season-3-finale-spoilers/), and a certain UK ITV promo stirring up, well, let’s say, emotional responses from fans.

(Promo below).

Apparently the promo’s been pulled from ITV after the GG creator intervened saying that it ‘misled’ fans. I can see how this is a distinct possibility – all of it looked like it could have been wildly taken out of context. But still.

Not only this, but Ausiello’s delivered some juicy spoilery details to leave us fans guessing before tomorrow. Here are my predictions based on his reveals – let’s see how they match up after tonight!

  • Threesome – All I can say to this one is: ‘WTF’ and ‘OMGG’. With a conspicuous lack of Hilary Duff to fill in withDan and Vanessa, my mind is blown for who it could be. My imagination, no, but my logical brain… OK, fine. If I had to guess I’d say Dan, Georgina, Serena. No wait – Dan, Serena, Blair. No wait – Nate, Serena, Blair. No wait – Nate, Dan Serena – ah crap, I give up. But first guess = Dan, Georgina, Serena. (Yeah, Georgina’s actually coming back. I’m not just making that up.)
  • Departure – Easy – Little J. Just take a look at my previous article: No worries, though, she’s only off to boarding school for a little while. She’ll be back in the flesh next season by November sweeps.
  • Mini time-jump – WTF does this even mean? Are the characters going to be flashed to the future? No, because then Jenny couldn’t come back from boarding school next season. Flash back for Lily/Rufus (again?) I don’t think so – been there, done that. Who knows.
  • Engagement ring! – with Serena’s Dad – aka AthinVersionOfAlecBaldwin out of the picture, my theory of proposal to Lily is out the window. Nate to Serena seems only logical to me – or in a seriously twisted world, maybe Blair/Chuck.
  • Shooting – I don’t know, but for some reason this screams Nate to me. There have been a few rumours of him leaving (yeah, like that’s ever going to happen), but I don’t know… I’d guess either him or Chuck. My money’s on Nate.
  • Birth – Dorota’s baby. Duh.
  • Shocking OMG! Twist – OK, maybe not but… Blair-Dan, Blair-Dan, Blair-Dan please.
  • A pair of spectacular Jenny smackdowns at the hands of Blair (Leighton Meester never better!) – Yeah like that was never going to happen this season.

Let’s see if I’m right tonight . . . and let’s see what Gossip Girl has to say about it.
