Looking for publicity for his new hotel, Chuck moves his club's opening and convinces Serena to assist him in getting the word out. Feeling left out, Blair tries to win Chuck's approval by secretly helping him with a problem concerning the opening night. Meanwhile, Dan get's nervous after watching one of Olivia's infamous sex scenes with her co-star and real-life boyfriend during that time, Patrick Robinson. Jenny is forced to choose between Eric and her new role as Queen Bee, which as a result causes major conflict between the two characters.

I'm not really sure how I feel about this episode.

I was surprised that all my favorite scenes actually involved Dan. I think the Christmas episode in season 1 was probably the last time that happened. I thought the scene with him and Nate watching the vampire movie was hilarious. The line about Nate reading the movie's blogs made me laugh. And then I liked the scene at the end a lot where Dan and Olivia kissed for the paparazi, and Serena kissed Patrick. I'm curious to see what will happen with that. KC's comment seemed a little foreboding. All the Serena and Dan interactions kind of made me sad, though. It's like nothing ever even happened between them. I don't think I could ever be like that with a boy I had been in love with.

I was really happy that Jenny and Eric were so involved with the episode, and I like Jenny being queen...I'm just not sure I really get why she wants to be anymore. She's changed so much since season 1. Why is she suddenly changing back?

Lily was really sweet in this episode, but Rufus drives me crazy. He's so ridiculous. And I don't think it was very good of him to discourage Lily from going to support Chuck.

I'm really disappointed by Blair and Chuck tonight. They've always been my two favorite characters, and tonight I didn't like either of them. Blair was still acting childish, and I didn't like the way she treated Serena. But I also thought what Chuck said to Blair about why he couldn't say "I love you" was really, really mean. Last season when Blair pulled that scheme on Nate at his cousin's rehearsal dinner, Chuck told Nate that it was foolish of him to want Blair to be anything other than what she is. Chuck knows Blair is a schemer. Why is he suddenly so offended by that? He lies to HER all the time. And then I thought the resolution of their issues was weak. Shouldn't they at least have mentioned the fact that she called Jack--Chuck's uncle who she had sex with?? The one scene I did like was right when she arrived at the club and apologized. Leighton is such a talented actress, and I thought she did a great job with that scene.

To me it felt like old school Gossip Girl. It had all the elements there that made me fall in love with the show to begin with.

I'll start with Jenni. That girl has no clue who she is anymore. I would feel sorry for her (and in some ways I do) but she is the one choosing to live the way she is living. I found it ironic that she expected Eric to just understand. How does one understand being treated like crap in the name of popularity? The girl acts like there is this switch inside her that flips according to who she is with. Living that way is going to result in a cold, lonely existence.

Case and point is Blair. She doesn't know how to live now that she can't rule Constance. She is still floating around at a loss. I know this is annoying to some but it is realistic. How many people have been able to find their footing in a matter of a couple months? It took me a couple years. Throw in the mix that she has a shallow bitch for a best friend, a self consume albeit yummy boyfriend, and enough self doubt for an entire platoon. I am a bit shocked she hasn't lost her mind yet. Or maybe she has. Maybe that is what drove her to ask Jack for help. She was desperate to help Chuck in some way; preferably a way Serena couldn't. Lets not forget that the last serious boyfriend Blair had Serena fucked and fucked without a feeling of guilt.

Serena got what was coming to her from Blair in my opinion. Not once has she ever thought about why Blair was doing something or if she herself was somehow to blame for Blair's meltdowns. I would love to see the two of them go their separate ways simply because I think anyone Serena gets near ends up broken, lost, insane, or driven to solitude. It isn't everyone around her. It is her!

THe whole thing with Dan and Olvia is too cutesy for me. It is too fairytale perfect. Movie star falls for commoner. THe storyline is over used. Did love their scene with the kiss though.
