Gossip Girl Round Table: "The Princesses and the Frog"

at . Comments

Welcome back to the weekly TVF Gossip Girl Round Table, where our panel breaks down the previous night's episode (see our review from earlier this morning).

Below, TV Fanatic Editor Mister Meester is joined by THE shot-caller himself, our company President Gossip Guy, for a discussion of "The Princesses and the Frog."

Our colleague DANdy is still off partying in Asia, but hopefully, like Jack Bass, he will be back on the East Coast next week. It's a two-man show again for now:


1. What was your favorite Gossip Girl quote from last night?

Gossip Guy: I want to give it to newcomer Charlie. Girl gave it to Vanessa when she told her she didn't know how to win Dan or she wouldn't be studying aboard. Snap. We all know you get bonus point from Gossip Guy for any insults directed at V.

Mister Meester: Louis proposing. I'm a sucker for that not-French-sounding but still adorable accent, and for anything that will make the Queen happy.

2. Who are you more disappointed in, Serena or Chuck?

Gossip Guy: The weird part is I'm a little more disappointed in Serena. That's not at all saying I condone any of Chuck's actions, I've just come to expect this kind of drunken irresponsible behavior whenever he learns about his past. Serena, however, trying to ruin the rest of her supposed best friend's life after a fake apology? So low. Even for jealous Boobs McGee.

Mister Meester: I don't condone what Chuck did in the least, nor am I making excuses for him. I let him have it in my Gossip Girl review, and am pissed at what he did to Blair. That said, I can at least see where it came from. Dude is a physical and emotional mess and has slowly become so over a period of weeks. Serena, on the other hand, is acting like the worst friend ever for seemingly no reason, and her nonsensical reasons for trying to derail Blair's dreams almost make me more angry at her.

3. Is Charlie the new Georgina (resident crazy girl in training)?

Gossip Guy: Woh, woh Mister Meester. Don't say things you can't take back. Charlie lying to oust Vanessa is never crazy. That's just standard UES behavior and if anything commendable.

Mister Meester: Georgina's the craziest of the crazy, but Charlie could be her understudy. Like the Sith Lords of Star Wars, there must be a master and an apprentice ...

ROYALLY CUTE: Come on, royal people. How can you not love Blair?

4. Will Blair actually marry Prince Louis?

Gossip Guy: I normally am the biggest supporter of Chair for the endgame, but Chuck's latest self destruction has made him harder than ever to root for. And this is from the guy's original fan from season one.  Sorry, buddy, I'm officially on team Blois. But that's only because Dair is off the table in this question. So to finally answer your question? I sure hope so. But I know she won't :(

Mister Meester: I kind of hope so, if it means more of that curly hair. How cute does that look on Leighton? But seriously, since the writers basically assassinated Chuck and left Dan out to dry last night, I'm about ready to get on board with Louis. The fact that I was immersed in Royal Wedding coverage all last weekend doesn't hurt.

5: Rate last night on the Vanessa Uselessness Scale (1-10).

Gossip Guy: She not only was somewhat relevant to tonight's episode, she basically admitted to her uselessness this week! So really, V, I turn the question do you. What would you rate yourself on our VUS? ... No? Nothing? Fine, then I'll give you an 8. Bitch. So glad you're leaving us to study abroad in an unnamed destination.

Mister Meester: 5, for basically validating the existence of this very scale, and for peacing out of the show at the end. Anyone sad about that plot twist?

6: Jack is back next week. What do you think for?

Gossip Guy: Well clearly he'll gladly accept a call from any random girl (read Raina) and will fly halfway across the country to help her destroy his nephew. This is Gossip Girl and that is Jack Bass. Hopefully he'll bring back DANdy on his returning flight. We sure do miss him here at TV Fanatic.

Mister Meester: If the writers are looking for a way to make Chuck a sympathetic figure, having Jack and Russell Thorpe team up against him is a good start. Come on. He's made a mess of his life, and that's on him, but hasn't he been through enough? Does Jack want Chuck dead? What else can he possibly do to ruin his nephew?

What do you think? Sound off in the comments!

I really hope that GG has some better, because the start of the season was perfect, and the chemistry between Dan and Blair was something wonderful and see what would happen what happened honestly disappointed me. Chuck and Blair has given what he had to give, there's nothing else. And from what I read on fan site, here in Brazil there are many people who do not like ... to tell the truth HATES what the writers have made with DAIR.


@Joe Rios
It's not the same ring. Where on Earth would Louis even have gotten it from Chuck? Chair is dead and has been for a while now. You keep saying that Blair is a bad person too, and that's what makes it okay? Isn't it more logical for them to just move on to other people who treat them better and who they treat better in return?


oh yeah, there is also Vanessa...whatever....


Stupid Serena, cute Blair, scary Chuck, boring Raina, useless Nate (in fact, you should start rating Nate's uselessness after V is gone), cool Dan and brilliant Charlie!!


Prince Louis should go away.i hate him,Chair 4ever and always
Blair will leave Louis and come back to chuck


My mom says that Chuck should beat that prince's a** and she is willing to bet he does! what the heck he gave her Chuck's ring...we know she will find out it is Chuck's and see him for the underhanded cheapskate he really is! then It is CHAIR CHAIR CHAIR! Except that my mom wants Chuck so that Blair is gonna have to get in line! :) Go Mom!


i just saw the preview of this episode and totally disapointment chair is happening all over again lake the most natural thing with blesses from the writers and dair is officially over before it even began...charlie kisses dan and he doesn't pull back,then again he has every right to do it if blair is moving as fast as he, i lost all my hope for a dair ending even a dair tiny scene and i lost my hope for blair's happiness because she will never be happy around chuck i don't know why i should bother to see this episode. i guess dair is over........


@phs Hope you never operate on my brain!
Chair sucks.


Honestly, the Chuck apologists are hilarious. I am Stephen Hawking and even I want Chair to be endgame. I am Mother Teresa and I think Chuck is doing just fine. I am a 30 year old mother who has never been abused and I would be fine with it if Chuck treated me just like he treats Blair! CHUCK AND BLAIR FOREVER !!!!!!!


Guys, your impeccable spelling and writing are really very convincing. ;) Crème de la crème, indeed!
Anyway, it was just a brutal joke I am sincerely surprised you even bothered to reply to. My apologies and all the best with your TV passions.
