Gossip Girl Round Table: "The Dark Night"

As fans gather in our


1. What was your favorite Gossip Girl quote from the episode?

DANdy: Blair's response to Catherine, when the latter asked if the former had seen Nate: "Um, no, it's a blackout." Both bitchy and logical at once!

Mister Meester: When Blair calls Catherine out as an "aging beauty having her last fling before the surgeries start. It's called a cliché." Oh. Snap.

Gossip Guy: I think my favorite quote was the exchange between Chuck and Serena about our poor boy losing his mojo. But if we want to get technical and just have a single quote, I have to give it to Serena for "You are not using Blair as sexual Drano!" A good friend - and funny!

2. How will man-whore Nate escape the clutches of Catherine?

DANdy: He won't. Soon enough, Nate will wake up and realize he's sleeping with a stunning older woman, who likely knows her way around the bedroom AND is paying him for his dalliances. Maybe then Nate will stop being such a wuss.

Mister Meester: This cougar isn't mauling Nate because of his personality. He just needs to pull a Chuck and have some "equipment failure."

Gossip Guy: Why should he? So he can go running into the arms of the less attractive Vanessa? Stay where you are, man bangs, and be a good son. I mean it could be a lot worse. You got yourself one good looking sugar momma!

3. Better fake accent: Florida native Patrick Heusinger as Marcus, or the pride of London, Ed Westwick, as Chuck Bass?

Mister Meester: Ed, hands down, but props to the writers for giving both of them excuses to use their real accents this season!

Gossip Guy: Wait... Marcus is supposed to be English?!? Go Ed!

DANdy: Ed Westwick! He plays the Bass with a convoluted, cocky drawl that is almost as outlandish as Chuck's typical fashion choices. I still don't see how Blair hasn't given in to him.

4. Do you like the Jenny / fashion design story line?

Gossip Guy: At first I hated it, but the story line has been growing on me now that Mrs. Waldorf has returned. But as far as realism goes, wow this plot is silly.  The girl is 14 and landed a successful fashion internship?? I guess it sure beats her other statutory rape plot lines.

DANdy: Not as much as a story line that would involve Taylor Momsen aging four years and posing naked for Playboy.

Mister Meester: I like it enough, although it's been a tad boring. I'm more looking forward to Jenny's apparent future hook-up.


An underling of Gossip Girl catches Dan and Serena in the act.

5. How big a moron is Dan?

Gossip Guy: Out of a scale of 1 to 10? I'd say somewhere around a 968,375,275.2 Yeah, go have fun hanging out with Vanessa. You sure won in this breakup, loser.

DANdy: So big, he fell over, broke his leg and gravy spilled out!

Mister Meester: I get that Dan would be a little insecure about his social standing, but bloggers and snotty 10-year-old girls are getting in his head now? Give us a break, Dan. Then grow a pair and go win back our girl.

look, obviously we are all for blair-chuck AND serena-dan... which is WHY the team @ GG is making us tune in to the next episode to see what happens with them. cmon, admit it...dan and serena breaking up just made us want to watch GG even more... TO SEE THEM GET BACK 2GETHER! same goes for Chair... its all about ratings,,, view,,, that kinda stuff. we all thought blair and chuck would get back together and that is why we watched.


Sooo glad that serena and dan broke up!!!!!!i mean...FINALLY!!they're so boring together...i mean its nice how they care for each other and everything but they're just not meant to be on the show...i wish that SERENA WILL GET TOGETHER WITH NATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!they look soo great together!!! and and and...i dont get why blair is still going out with 'the lord' she should be with chuck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!love nerena..and chair^^


In the end, nothing made sense, but hopefully that means everyone has gone a lil crazy for the dramatic effect. Hopefully, in time the GG world will return to what it's supposed to be... Dan & Serena, Chuck & Blair, and Nate & ...who knows...


serena and dan are cute together butttt im excited for serena's supposed future crush, aaron rose! he better not be a dissapointment.
and nate and vanessa obviously need to be together.


I don't get why Dan and Serena broke up? I've seen the next episodes promo and it's sad how Serena treats Dan.BOOO!!!:(


OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG chuck should be with blair forever!!! Blair shouldnt be with the lord dude!!! chair is the best!!! ^^


no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no
dan and serena are sposed 2 b together forever
my bet is that in the next few episodes they will try and get new lovers to make the other jealous
throw in a few hate-sex moments here and there and im happy!
if only dan and serena heard what vanessa said in episode 8 (or is it 7?) "maybe you dont go back, maybe you go forward"
dan and serena need to hear that
i dont even get why they broke up




You guys are out of your minds. Catherine is by far the hottest on the show. Screw Vanessa! Nate is so lucky because he gets with Catherine and she pays him. Can't beat that! She is banging!
