Gossip Girl Review: Headbands and Heartbreak

by at . Comments

The countdown is on. With only a few episodes remaining in the final season of Gossip Girl, the series tries to bring it this week. Let’s discuss "Save the Last Chance."

Is Derena Back On? Things looked promising when the hour started off with Dan and Serena still in bed together. The two decided they need to make amends with their friends before they even think about getting back together and letting people know about it. Mission accomplished.

So these two are back together. Good idea? Doubtful. Looks like Good Guy Dan really is long gone, proving so when Georgina made a quick appearance to find out that S will be the next chapter. Sorry, Serena, your luck hasn’t improved yet.

Cute Dan and Serena Picture

Basshole Drama. This arc needs to come to an end. Not only did it take up the majority of the installment, but it led nowhere once again. Father and son fight for drama. Ex-husband brings evidence to ex-wife who burns it. Somehow in this mess, Ivy ended up half naked. Pretty much the only good part to come out of it. Ivy tried to make deals with the Bass’ to destroy Lily. Didn’t happen. Chuck tried to stop Lily from burning the evidence. Didn’t happen. Really, the same as other episodes this season. A lot of build up for nothing big to come out of it.

At least there were some interesting new relationships. Bart became Nate’s partner so he can own him. This won’t last long. If there is one thing that Man Bangs is good for, it is standing up to the elder Bass. Gorgeous and tough. Thank you, CW, for putting Chase Crawford on our screen every week. Now just get him to take his shirt off. It’s been a few weeks...

Cute Blair and Chuck Picture

In a completely creepy twist, Ivy is digging her claws into another older man. Welcome back, Billy Baldwin! Serena’s absentee father returned to make out with Ivy and prove the two had been working together to destroy Lily (called it)! William didn’t seem to interested in the scratchy throat vixen by the end of the hour. Could this all be a plot to destroy Ivy? 

Anyone else think that Ivy with William is creepier than being with Rufus?

Speaking of Rufus: what are you thinking about returning the evidence to Lily? Girl dropped you when her dead husband showed up. You can not possibly be that nice!

Queen B Returns. Blair’s pop up show was a success, even with the scheming of Sage and the other high school minions. Best part about it? B brought back the headband! Worst part about it? Her success highlighted Chuck’s failure, as he now thinks they can’t be together anymore. Make a decision, you two.

Overall, a pretty solid episode for the final season of GG. What did you think, TV Fanatics? Was “Save The Last Chance” up to par for an episode so close to the end? Check back for the Gossip Girl Round Table and visit our Gossip Girl quotes for the top stinging one-liners.

@b, Yeah, and that is very possible, because Bart holds Nate in his hand!

Another theory Bart has Nate punch Dan.

@b, Yes but we've all seen the pictures that will be in the end the wedding between Serena and Dan, and the rest is only 3 episodes to go! I'm glad you liked Dan and Serena! I think I've already explained the phone call. As for Nate, it is a bit complicated, I really do not understand why Nate hitting Dan, but I have a few theories. Nate hitting Dan because Dan wrote in the chapter on Serena that, at the beginning of the season 1, Nate took drunken Serena to lose his virginity to her, which I think is true! For me, this theory is the most realistic, because everything else would require more time, and there is only 3 episodes. Of course there is the other thing that Nate hit Dan when he learned that Dan and Serena back together, because Nate is again in love with Serena. This theory makes no sense because Serena does not love Nate, and this would have looked like from episode 1x01.

As for what happens with the article I hope your right1 for you sake cause I know you want a derena endgame as badly as I want a chair one and I prefer Serena with Dan she brings out the best in him which hopefully he sees soon because If he does publish the negative one I doubt they'll be together in the end

@zoran: that might be true. but we all know that all stuff which happened in gg is very fast forgotten too. i wanna that rufus would punch william finally.

I love Serena I don't dislike her with Dan but the phone call coupled with the Nate punching him in the promo leads be to believe he publishes the negative article and how do you know his motives when you like the rest of us haven't seen the next episode

@neddi^^, In the next two episodes will certainly Lily and Rufus to be reconciled. William will have to destroy his daughter - Serena, because she was so hurt of him in the last season!

@b, It is clear that you do not like Serena and Dan, but what are you trying to say regarding the talk Dan with Georgina is not true. Dan just did not want to talk to Georgina, but knowing how stubborn she is, he responded to the call, and then turned off the phone and threw it away, that is nothing interrupted him and Serena while having a sex! If you do not understand how Serena and Dan is in love, you have to re watch the episode 6x06, as would say Phoebe from Friends series – ‘’Dan is Serena’s lobster’’!

@b, Although not directly addressed to me, I'll will answer to you, because I am, as you know, a big fan of Serena and Dan! No one to my knowledge has said that Dan was driving Serena on a Vespa on their first date in season 1, it's occurred to you! Of course Dan rented a limo, but also then Serena said to Dan that she most loving, of course, after Dan, to ride on a Vespa! Besides Lily, Blair and Dan nobody knows that Serena likes to ride on a Vespa, nor Nate and Chuck do not know! Dan then when both leaving the hotel Palas learned from Serena that she loves to ride on a Vespa! All we fans of Serena and Dan waited 5 seasons to finally Dan drive Serena on a Vespa, and now it happened in episode 6x06! The fact that Serena and Dan are together ride on a Vespa is one of the key evidence of their love, and that they will be together in the end! The reason why Dan bought a Vespa is when he was in Italy he fell in love to ride on a Vespa, just like Serena! It is clear that you do not like Serena and Dan, but what are you trying to say regarding the talk Dan with Georgina is not true. Dan just did not want to talk to Georgina, but knowing how stubborn she is, he responded to the call, and then turned off the phone and threw it away, that is nothing interrupted him and Serena while having a sex! If you do not understand how Serena and Dan is in love, you have to re watch the episode 6x06, as would say Phoebe from Friends series – ‘’Dan is Serena’s lobster’’!
