What on Earth is going on in this show? The last episodes were a race towards madness but this week’s episode finally reached the finish line. After the episode ended all my brain could think was: bananas!
Let’s start with fake Charlie. Her identity finally came out in the open and she’s trying to convince everybody that, despite everything, she’s a good person and only did it because she wanted a family. However, she then changes her mind and kicks Lily and Rufus out of the house. How does that add up?
Then there is the whole thing with Carol telling William that Charlie is actually his daughter. I get that they’re running out of ideas for the plot, but really? Who cares about this? It’s just going to be a lot of scenes of Carol blackmailing William until it all blows up in their faces and everybody ends up being hurt by it, specially Serena who will cry about it for a day and then move on to better things.
Finally, the craziest part of the whole episode: Blair and Dan. Not that I couldn’t see where this was going but I never really thought this would actually end up happening. But here it is, the only two people in the show who hadn’t slept together yet. Well, actually there’s Serena and Chuck but even that wouldn’t be that weird. So here we are, Blair and Serena are finally going to be together (or not, because you never know, but it looks like it). But really, the person that I saw in today’s episode wasn’t really Blair. She was not scheming, she was letting other people take care of her issues and even the outfits were not that great. What is going on? Was Chuck right when he said she had changed? It looks like it and she is certainly loosing her charm on the way. As for Dan, it just seems very unlikely for his character to fall in love with someone like Blair. And also what happened with the rest of his life (university, writing…)? All he seems to do is be around Blair. Well, let’s hope he at least gets some fashion advice out of this relationship, starting with a haircut.
Before I finish, though, I should say I enjoyed the episode, all the drama and madness are fun, they are the reason why I liked this show on the first place but lately it is a bit too much. Also, I do like Dan and Blair together, but that doesn’t keep me from realizing how weird it all is. Well, we’ll just have to wait and see how it all turns out.
P.S. Btw, I just realized, weren’t they supposed to be going to college? What happened with that?
