I’m crying right now and it’s not because I’m leaving Paris in 10 days or because the guy I was seeing left for Africa or because I have to spend another holiday season with my family; I’m crying because of GOSSIP GIRL.
This was the first episode I can truly say resonated with their “OMFG” slogan because seriously... OMFG.
Serious spoiler alert below.
Bart Bass... dead. Chuck... gone. Lily... aborted Rufus’ baby. Blair... told Chuck she loved him. Eleanor... married. Aaron... in love with Serena. Dan... also in love with Serena. Eric... back together with Jonathan. Serena... off to Buenos Aires with Aaron.
WHAT THE FUCK.
More happened in this episode than in the entire season. And seeing Chuck vulnerable like that touched a nerve in me I never thought existed. I’ve become more emotionally tied to the characters this season mostly because I really do think this one is much better than the last, but they really stayed true with Chuck’s character throughout this situation; he would totally get drunk and hole up in The Palace with twins and then drunkenly call Lily a “whore.”
I’m going to watch this episode again right now. SO FUCKING GOOD.
P.S. They play my favorite National song - "Slow Show" - at the end. GAHHH.
P.P.S. Amazing "Chuck is drunk and angry" screencaps:
