As the summer is drawing to a close, Blair and Chuck are madly in love and adjusting to their new "in a relationship" status, breaking all traditional rules of dating as would be expected. Serena returns from her European adventure with many secrets to hide and a complicated relationship with Carter Baizen (guest star Sebastian Stan). Nate returns from his travels with a mysterious brunette, Bree Buckley (guest star JoAnna Garcia) in tow. Rufus, Dan and Jenny spent the summer in the Hamptons, adjusting to the van der Woodsen's glamorous lifestyle surprisingly faster than any of them expected. Jessica Szohr also stars.

What premiere would be complete without Serena returning with some sort of summer mystery that has driven her to acting like a slut, drinking too much, posing for the paps? And of course it must take place in Europe! Big yawn. Serena, Serena, Serena. The show is called Gossip Girl not the Serena Show. *roll of eyes*

Blair, you silly girl, don't you know that if you play with fire you are going to get burned? These games she is playing with Chuck are most definitely fire. It might seem like fun. It might keep things interesting. It might also destroy her relationship via trust starting to slip. The seeds were definitely planted tonight that is for certain.

Jennifer looked adorable and she has stayed well rounded. I was really worried that they would turn her back into a one dimensional brat. I cannot wait to see her as Queen of Constance. They are going to have to bring her a king. Unless they want to make me happy and allow her to have Nate back!

Vanessa was as annoying as ever. She has always acted like the upper eastsiders are stuck up and think only about their wants, needs, ect. but the truth is that is her. She is the latino version of Serena.

Wow! I have to completely disagree!

I think Chuck really believes he is done living in his father's shadow. Yes it will eventually come back up because even in real life it has to at some point. That doesn't really have any bearing on his relationship with Blair. He clearly loves her and wants to just be with her. They didn't have any problems until Serena butted in and started telling Blair she should be unhappy.

The problem lies in Serena. Until Serena came back Blair had no problem with what was going on. It kept things interesting. It was fun. I got the impression that Chuck played the game because that was what Blair wanted. When she seemed no longer interested in it he was fine with that. She is the one who kept bringing the games back up. I think if anyone has doubts in that relationship it is her. And they were planted there by Serena.

Of course Bart has an effect on the person Chuck is. All parents, good or bad, effect their children. He didn't give Chuck a very good example in the love department. I think Chuck slept around because he wanted to be like his dad. He wanted to show his father they had things in common. THink about all the business ventures he tried to come up with. Think about the way he dressed. And then his dad died. His dad died alone all because he wasn't honest with the woman he loved. Chuck didn't/doesn't want that.

You are a lot like me in the sense that we react firt and think second. As I have gotten older I tend to do it less and less. And you are entitled to feel however you want about any of the storylines. I am just glad to have someone to discuss the show with! I think it allows us to shed light on things for each other. :)

I think the thing to remember Gwen is that Chuck and Blair are far from fluffy. They are angst defined. Even more so than Alex and Izzie.
