Blair, who is determined to maintain her Queen status in college, embarks on her first day at NYU, along with Dan and Vanessa. Unfortunately, Georgina (guest star Michelle Trachtenberg) turns up as Blair's roommate in the dorms, determined to make Blair a social outcast. As Serena prepares to depart for Brown, she and Chuck have a major falling out, so she recruits Chuck's enemy, Carter (guest star Sebastian Stan), to help her get even. Nate and Bree (guest star JoAnna Garcia) decide to explore their relationship further, knowing full well it could cause tension between their families who are political rivals. Taylor Momsen and Matthew Settle also star.

I am trying really, really hard to like Serena this season but she is making it impossible. So her father doesn't want anything to do with her. At this point I can't say that I really blame him. She is a train wreck, one that will have no survivors. What she did to Chuck was not only childish it was downright spiteful. If she isn't happy nobody can be happy? If she doesn't agree it isn't right? How old is this girl? Eight or eighteen?

Of course the same could be said of Blair. Good grief. She needs to wake up, smell the change, and grow. It is in her. I think she is just scared of being irrelevant. Also, she doesn't know how to do anything else. She is literally only good for one thing: society wife. Good thing she's got Chuck!

I love Chuck! He is so grown up this season. I am like a proud mama! He is starting to show signs of being his own man and making something for himself that is different than what his father built. Go Charles! I am really looking forward to seeing him grow even more!

Dan is a prick. I haven't made up my mind on whether or not I like that fact or not. Still don't like Vanessa. Those ratty looking extensions need to GO! And I missed Jenny this episode. :( I really need my little J fix. Hopefully with a little Nate thrown in. He was missing this season too!

I get what you are saying Ari, I really do, but I can't help but disagree on some things. Especially Blair. Look at the life she led. She lived in a bubble. She doesn't know how to act around a diverse group of people because she has never been exposed to one. Its a cultural thing. The great thing about cultural related issues is a person can overcome them. In the length of the episode you can see a difference in Blair's mindset. She went in with blinders on and has had them partially removed. You only have to watch the downward slide of her confidence to see that.

Much as I dislike Nate and Bree I think there is a purpose to them. Remember she is just a guest star. I am not quite sure what the point is but I am having faith that it will be revealed. Most of the time this show doesn't do things without reason. Bree is no exception. She is clearly using him.

Can't stand the Humphery family or cannot stand Dan and Rufus? If you are grouping Jenny into the hate when them I have to object. On some level I have to object to the whole classification of Dan and Rufus. Dan has always had "ass" boiling just beneath the surface and while I don't like it I do understand it. It is part of him finding himself and growing up. Much like all the characters. They need to experiment and make mistakes before they settle into the people they are going to be.

Gwen, I love my new siggy and avatar as well! I'm actually working on my first Gossip Girl fanfiction. :)

I think you have to remember that private schools, especially upper class private schools, are a world of their own. The kids that go there stick to their own kind. Look at how much of an outcast Dan and Jenny were. Not because they weren't nice or because they weren't attractive enough. No, they were cut off because they didn't know the right people or have the right address. Blair is in a new element without the knowledge of how to deal.

It took a while for Jenny to grow on me. I hated her in season one but by the end of Season two I loved her! Especially with Nate. I don't know why but there is something about them that just makes me smile. I respect that not everyone feels that way though lol.

Gwen, well since i am a Nate fan its about Nate. :teehee:

Dan's brother is something my best friend and I were talking about. We belong to a group on facebook that was discussing it as well. I don't think he is evil or the acting is bad I think they have him acting out of place on purpose because, well, he is out of place. He's trying to know his family without them knowing who he is. I say give him the season before making a snap judgement.
