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.

As for Chuck and Blair, their love is not finished, Blair still wears a ring on a chain around her neck! Chuck is lost the battle, but new players are entering to help him win the war against Bart! In the next episode team up 4 gorgeous - Blair, Serena, Ivy and Sage to destroy Bart! Also, I think that Lily did the right thing to burned evidence of Bart, since if she did not do that this evidence would send Bart to jail, but Lily, Chuck and Serena will lost their property because it would be confiscated by the state, as was the case in Nate's father! The question remains whether Lily would said to Bart that she burnt the evidence? My opinion is that she will not, because now that Rufus drove Ivy, it is possible to reconcile Lily and Rufus, as for Lily Rufus is love of her life, and vice versa! Also, Lily loves Chuck more than Bart, and she will go to Chuck side!

Because in this chapter on Serena is nothing new, except sex tape, but it has already shown! The only thing new that it would be in the chapter on Serena's how it ends, and that's exactly what Dan works with Serena at the end of 6x07!

The episode is excellent, as I said a few weeks ago as we approach the end every episode is better and better, and certainly deserves 4 stars, and I would give her 5! But back to the main point, most of the comments related to Serena and Dan are from those viewers who do not like the two of them! In the last episode 6x06 Serena and Dan are reconciled and again together, now in 6x07 their relationship deepens, because they finally decided to implement a pact from season 4 (the last scene in the episode 6x07)! As for Dan’s chapter on Serena, remember the episode 6x01, in Tuscany, when Georgina read that Dan wrote as Serena and him had sex at the end of season 5, Dan has already written a chapter on Serena, but he does not know how it ends! Dan wants to finish the chapter by making Serena and him go together into the sunset, and therefore corresponds like that to Georgina! Because in this chapter on Serena is nothing new, except sex tape, but it has already shown! The only thing new that it would be in the chapter on Serena's how it ends, and that's exactly what Dan works with Serena at the end of 6x07!

Is anyone else noticing Nate's fat lip again!!!! It first made an appearance towards the end of last season and it seems to be back. I originally heard he fell on his face but I'm beginning to find it hard to believe that he'd fall on his face twice and get the same fat lip.

Arghhh this episode was so frustrating, the Chuck situation just keeps going back and forth, enough already! But am sure eventually he'll find a way to bring down Bart. I think William is just using Ivy and doesn't really care about her, I think maybe he wants Lily back.
And I also don't believe Dan is actually using Serena, I think he just wanted to get rid of Georgina at that moment when he said that. I really hope they're endgame.

I loved the review hey maybe because like the author I'm a fan as for the haters stop watching no one is making you watch I admitted a couple episodes after the premier weren't that great but they did have some redeeming qualities

I get that the pact is and the ''breakup'' is making fans wary but come on you know it will be resolved quickly there is only 3 episodes left and Ive been reading the reviews on this site and all the others and I have a few questions what were you expecting have you watched this show before do you know what network its on come on people be realistic I still enjoy the show and I thought this site and others like it were for fans to read recaps comment and find out spoilers but no its turned into a hate club and turn authors of the reviews are being mocked because their fans grow up as for the huff post recapper I doubt she he was ever really a fan its the same complaints over and over even during season 12345 so I deleted my bookmark stay on that site if that's what you prefer

For so called fans you you guys sure don't Luke Thu show or know its history on their first date Serena thought Dan was driving a Vespa he wasn't he rented a limo and took her to a fancy restaurant If I had a dollar for every comment I've read claiming Derena rode a vespa on their first date I'd be rich yes it's a nod/allusion to their first date and the fact that S loves vespas and thought Dab planned her perfect date when in reality he hadn't and how was he to know that she liked vespas before getting to know her an know looking at the fact that he bought one after their supposed reconciliation and his phone call with G makes me question his motives even more and fyi Ausiello is the spoiler ''guru'' that told serenate fans to lose hope don't know about you guys but IMO he's a delusional dair shipper that's obsessed with Dan
