OMFG I don't know if I should be pleased or pissed with Gossip Girl. I've been going through Gossip Girl withdrawals since the last new episode, but after last night's episode I'm frustrated. Blair (Leighton Meester) was awesome as always. Serena (Blake Lively) is enchanted with yet another pointless male character. Nate (Chase Crawford) is as boring as ever. Taylor Momsen's Jenny continues to be given worthless plot points, such as delivering letters, when we all know Jenny could be as great a character as Blair. I won't even dignify Vanessa (Jessica Szohr) with a comment. Dan (Penn Badgley) is still clueless.
Then there is Chuck (Ed Westick). Speaking for myself, I think that almost every storyline the character has received this season has been absolutely abysmal. In addition to botching the Blair and Chuck connection, the only storyline he received of some merit was the battle over Bass Industries and that didn't last nearly long enough.
Now the previews for next week's episode implies a Blair and Nate hookup, among other things? I'm beginning to wonder if Gossip Girl is suffering from a sophomore slump.
What grade do you give this season of Gossip Girl?
