Hey fans - episode 3 of course did not disappoint! Tenions between our favorite UES kids escalated like a summer heat wave. Unfortunately, what seems so clear by day quickly turns to shadow at night. An ever-hopeful Dan and Serena, desperate to hold onto their blissful ignorance, finally fall apart in a sweaty locked elevator. Dapper Dan is both simultaneously giddy and repulsed that he’s making it with Manhattan’s IT girl - it’s all good when they’re lip-locked and laughing, but when he actually has to spend a few minutes with her in a confined space he attempts to throw himself down an elevator shaft. Ah, young love - who hasn’t been here before? Ironically, it’s the Queen B. of Shallow Relationships who predicts the inevitable split right to S.’s face (what are friends for, of course!) - too bad she can’t do the same for her own desperate love life. It’s obvious that Serena and Dan have to get serious and put their differences to bed (figuratively and literally) or just move on already - I don’t know if Jenny can handle them dumping each other every 47 minutes.
I’ve decided that Chuck’s pursual of B. is much more interesting. This dance between them - Chuck as the high-school playboy and Blair as the manipulative social climber - that started late last season has now grown into a dynamic that is all at once comedic, tragic and romantic. For all the head games both like to play their passions for each other might just be the most authentic of the group, and it shows. Chuck is enthralled by the nearly out of reach B., and the glimpses of himself that he sees in her. Blair of course is both flattered by his claims of love and reformed sexual adventurousness, but just can’t allow herself to follow her passion instead of her pocketbook. Just when I thought they had things locked up at the end of the episode, courtesy of the Duke’s implied gayness, he goes and gets a bout of heterosexiness and wrecks it all. Of course this doesn’t change anything for Chuck - the more unattainable B. becomes the more he falls for her, but I am curious to see how long his vow of chastity lasts!
yikes! that episode was scorching- there were more hotties there than at a Hefner party! It was good to see the gang not skip a beat after last season - trying to get right back on that hook-up horse! Nate - I did not see that coming; I thought he’d mope around a bit after losing Blair or or least make a play for S., but hooking up with a Hampton Heiress - awesome! Now thats a summer fling!
And poor Dan the Man; also trying to soothe the aching heart by playing the field, albeit with hot geek chicks. But, thanks to some timely fatherly advice from the tour (where were the groupies?) Dan was able to check his head and make amends with S. (and her granny - do I see a little May-September romance here?).
And Jenny - that plucky fashion wunderkind, too busy for boys; I think she’s going to date one of her dresses! Good for her for showing up her boss - no more button sorting for that gal! It was good to see Eric out of treatment, must have bought himself a day pass to sun himself on the beach.
And what can we say about Chuck and B.? Their on-again, off-again romance continues from last season. Everytime I think Chuck is going to man-up and sweep her off her feet with all the right words he goes limp. Who can blame her for trying to spark a little genuine passion in the player by yanking his gold chain? Hopefully though she doesn’t get too serious with Lord Stiffy, I see him more hooking up with Eric anyway.
Little disappointed to not see Vanessa or Lily make appearances; I though fo’ sho’ that Vanessa would be harassing Dan or Nate for a little play, and that Lily would toss her WonderBra at a Rufus concert, but maybe next episode…
check ya later,
hey GG fans - just thought I’d drop a line before the big day! Hope everyone’s had a cool summer! If you’re like me you’ve spent the season getting your GG fix from all the teasers, blogs and mags full of our favorite UES teens, but I can’t wait to catch the season premiere tomorrow. The clips this blogger have seen look HOT! After last season’s finale I was worried that the gang would have bummer summers - S. lonely and wasting away in the Hamptons, Dan chumming around with his gal-pal Vanessa, B. touring europe with Random Guy, Nate scratching his head after losing his dad, gf. and BFF in one school year and Chuck…well, something tells me his summer was just fine.
Whats in store for us this season? Can S. and Dan re-unite after he’s realized that she might be as crazy as her brother or will Nate finally have a shot with her? Will Lily kick Bart to the curb and join the Rufus tour of love? Do B. and Chuck resume their brief, but scorching relationship? And what will little Jenny get up to, ”borrow” more dresses from Mrs. Waldorf? This season is going to be great - you’ll be able to get the latest on the shows, music, fashion and cast right here - I can’t wait to read all the posts!
and who am I? I’ll never tell. Let’s just say I love watching the sparks and daggers fly between these glitzy kids in their perfect Manhattan world….
