Lots of long faces on this gut-wrenching and mind-blowing season finale of Gossip Girl. In the midst of welcoming a new life into the world, these characters also said many good-byes. Some relationships fizzled, while other old flames were rekindled. And in the biggest turn of events, Chuck deflowers Jenny. And in a bigger turn of events, she whines about it like a baby to anyone who will listen as if the man took advantage of her. She chose to get into bed with Mr. Bass. She’s been at his humble abode for most of the season trying to sneak into Nate’s bed, why is she acting like Chuck did something wrong? She might feel cheap and guilty because she gave away her precious gift to a cad who could care less about her, but no one forced her to get under the covers.
Here are some other highlights from the episode:
Fool me once: Eric let bygones be bygones until Jenny tried to break up Rufus and Lily. Now he’s angry and willing to “totally send her crazy ass away.” But, in the final hours he changes his mind. Someone give that kid a medal for being the sweetest thing on the show.
Defriended: Dorota kicked Chuck off her list of Facebook friends and severed ties with him in real life. A diss isn’t real until it happens on Facebook.
Ditch the bitch: Georgina returns in a frightful blond wig and she’s running from the Russians.
A picture’s worth a thousand words: Jenny takes a picture of Serena and Dan crashing in bed and posts it on Gossip Girl. Blood is apparently not thicker than Jenny’s desire to nab Nate.
Bring it on: Blair jets to Brooklyn to give Jenny the “smack down” she deserves. And by smack down she means a drag-down, knock-out sucker punch given with razor-edged words. Chuck loves Blair. Nate loves Serena. Dan loves Vanessa. No one loves Jenny. Ouch!
Signs: Last season, the show used Bloc Party’s mournful “Signs” as a backdrop to Chuck’s mourning. This season, Blair informs us that signs are for the “religious, the superstitious and the lower class.” She’s a poet in disguise.
Baby on board: Dorota has a girl named Anastasia. Awwwww.
Pack your bags: Jenny’s going to Hudson. Good riddance.
Best song: “Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright.” A honky tonk version of the Bob Dylan classic set to the frenetic pacing of hearts being torn apart.
Drinking buddies: All it takes is two sips of a drink to avert Jenny’s attention from Nate to Chuck? Drawn together by their depression and loneliness, Jenny loses IT to Chuck moments before Blair comes knocking on his door to profess her love. Did anyone else spend the entire scene’s duration screaming NOOOOOO while frantically slapping their forehead with the palm of their hand?
It’s not you, it’s me: Serena decides she should do some soul searching and breaks Nate’s heart in the process. She really looks out for the feelings of those she cares about…NOT!
Thelma and Louise: Paris welcomes Blair and Serena. Let’s hope they don’t drive off a cliff together after a very handsome man with abs of steel robs them of their possessions.
Little black book: Chuck’s in Prague and Nate has access to his list of digits. If at summer’s end Nate is wearing bow ties and pastel colors we’re in trouble.
Shot through the heart: Did Chuck really take a bullet in that robbery? The writers really know how to ruin a summer by making viewers worry about Chuck’s fate for the next three months. Surely, he won’t die, but he won’t come out of this unscathed.
What did you think? Are you satisfied with the way the season ended? Are you anxious to find out what happens in Paris, Prague and New York?
