This week, we’ll see what repercussions there are from Blair putting in a good word for Chuck with Raina. There’s going to be a lot of tension professionally and personally, and I can’t even decide how Chuck actually feels.
9:03 p.m. Thorpe says the Lily he remembers doesn’t have a maternal bone in her body. Even the minor characters in the show know this.
9:04 p.m. Dan is giving Ben Serena advice? No, no, no. Dan would never have a maturity streak regarding Serena.
9:05 p.m. Dan having to go to Blair for career help? So much potential sexual tension it’s amazing.
9:07 p.m. Like Blair or Serena could or would ever write an article.
9:08 p.m. Why are Chuck’s parties always in like, imaginary worlds? He always wants them to transport you.
9:09 p.m. Serena always gets put in the middle of these Chuck and Blair misunderstandings. Naturally, Blair always takes them out on her. There could be a classic S and B showdown in this episode.
9:13 p.m. Serena clearly doesn’t understand how this ex-con thing works.
9:14 p.m. So, why are we all trusting the Captain suddenly?
9:15 p.m. “Something’s better than a Chuck Bass party?” All of a sudden Raina seems a lot dumber.
9:17 p.m. “Oh god, what did you do with her?” Dan asks when he finds out Blair has replaced Epperly.
9:18 p.m. People just hang up randomly on this show. In real life, everyone would be pissed.
9:19 p.m. Raina is such a Daddy’s girl. She thinks he can do no wrong, and it’s totally going to be her downfall.
9:25 p.m. Dan, you’re full of romantic advice this week. It’s kind of ironic considering you’re single and living with your ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend.
9:26 p.m. Dan says his pursuing Blair, “isn’t like that.” Sure it isn’t, writers. Just keep telling us that.
9:27 p.m. Serena and Blair showdown commences, right on cue.
9:28 p.m. Lily is the only person Chuck has really ever trusted or loved. They’ve had their issues this season, but I still feel like there’s an twist in here.
9:28 p.m. That was a nice little dig toward Valentine’s Day, Serena.
9:34 p.m. Chuck’s party appears to be vampire themed. Quite the transportation.
9:34 p.m. “No one is going to forget tonight.” Weak foreshadowing, writers.
9:35 p.m. Blair has a crew of mean girls even as a magazine editor. I also love the term “Valentine’s Vendetta.”
9:36 p.m. SO Phantom of the Opera, Chuck. Why don’t you just have a gondola?
9:38 p.m. It girls have “shoes of the moment.”
9:40 p.m. Raina stop adjusting your dress strap! It’s fixed.
9:40 p.m. Chuck could never ever be this stupid. Was Blair the only thing keeping him smart?
9:46 p.m. These Chicago businessmen are just messing everything up for the New Yorkers.
9:48 p.m. Raina is actually doing a much better job of calling Chuck on his shit than Blair ever did. Granted, Blair’s dad is a continent away.
9:48 p.m. The music is building up…
9:49 p.m. Fail.
9:53 p.m. Serena always rebounds effortlessly. Blair’s kind of right to be pissed about that.
9:55 p.m. Leighton Meester and Penn Badgley are the only people who act well on this show and make their characters real.
9:56 p.m. I smell a heist episode coming up.
9:57 p.m. This Dan/Blair scene is straight out of When Harry Met Sally. Win.
