This week found the gang pretty much doing the exact same thing they always do, which, since the season opener, is not a heck of a lot. What’s the show without some crazy cliffhanger mid-episode, with some mediocre resolution 3/4 of the way in, and another over-the-top cliffhanger at the end? Georgina might be up to something, but zzzzzzz I’m falling asleep just thinking about it.

Here, I suppose, is Serena’s Chloe Sevigny look. The tank I can get with, and I’m assuming the Matthew Williamson vest is extraordinary, without being able to see the detailing up close. The It Girl is getting fond of Almost Chuck, but, in my opinion, he just ain’t got the flair. Perhaps he should perfect his talking-like-Chuck-Bass voice. He seems like he should perpetually be going off to Martha’s Vineyard or something for alone time, and the riches to rags storyline seems a little done.
I really, absolutely cannot get with this dress though. Does Serena need to look even more like a cougar than she already does? Apparently the stylists say yes. I have been assured that this dress looks better up close, but I’d really prefer to see it from afar… really, really afar.
There was some Jenny appearances at some point (are we going to forget about her and the other Mean Girls?), some extraneous Dan stuff that makes me wonder why the New Yorker ever lets their name be mentioned (that gifted writer bullshit has really got to stop), and Vanessa discovered the mysterious truth behind that other should’ve been Humphrey kid that ended up being much ado about nothing. Because, apparently, nothing will happen plotwise until Serena’s mom comes back.
