Hey all you valley dwellers, after a month without new episode releases, Gossip Girl finally came back with "The Kids Stay in the Picture." Its about time! The episode was full of drama and scandal, as usual. Lily VanDerWoodson turned herself into the police for signing Serena's name on Ben's Affidavit, which resulted in him going to jail. Will they actually end up prosecuting her, or will her charm and net worth be enough to get her out of this debacle? All I know is that they are going to milk this story for all it's worth. After Lily made her confession, her sister, Carol, showed up, to be in a very important family portrait. Lily was pleasantly surprised that her sister showed up, until she found out her mother paid her to come. Along with Carol came Charlie, Serena's younger cousin. The two hadn't seen each other in years and Serena has already taken her under her wing. Will Charlie give into the temptations of the Upper East Side, or will she stay the sweet, innocent girl she was raised to be? While the VanderWoodson drama continues, Dan and Blair's budding relationship is starting to get questioned. In my opinion they are both falling for each other but are too embarrassed to admit it. In the end of the episode, Vanessa overhears the two of them discussing the kiss they shared last episode. Then, as if the episode wasn't dramatic enough, she calls Serena to tell her about the kiss. Chuck doesn't really make too much of an appearance in this episode, too bad for us right? He seems awfully lonely and depressed. I don't know if I like this new responsible, straight laced Chuck, how much more fun was he when he was rebellious? After Chuck and Raina had a falling out at the end of last episode, she has been spending a lot more time with Nate. Will this end up in another quarrel between the two best friends?
Of course, the ending of the episode left my mind racing with questions! First of all, is anyone else wondering why Jenny wasn't included in the family portrait? If the family made such an effort to include the step father, sister, and cousin, why wouldn't they go the extra mile to include Jenny as well? Also, what do you think will happen to Lily? I highly doubt she will be sent to the slammer, she will get off easily just like they always do. She will probably just have to resign from her high society committees or something. What do you think? And most importantly....DAN AND BLAIR? What do you think everyone's reactions will be when they find out. After Vanessa called and told Serena word is bound to get out. Do you think Blair will run back to Chuck, or try out something new with Dan?
Things are only bound to get more intense.
Until next time....xoxo
