Gossip Girl Double Identity Review

When the episode opened, Serena and Blair were still in Paris. Serena was wearing an awful gold jacket that reminded us of Michael Jackson’s clothing choices, along with poofy blue parachute pants. We were not digging it. Blair looked cute though, which was a good thing since she spotted old flame Chuck Bass while passing him in her car. That moment wasn’t as heart-stopping as we wanted it to be, but we are glad the show didn’t make us wait any longer to see them together again.

Serena found out that Chuck was still alive when the body she was to identify as Chuck's was actually one of the thieves who tried to steal Chuck’s engagement ring for Blair. Serena tracked Chuck down, but he pretended not to know her in front of his new French girlfriend, Eva. Serena stuck around for a bit and got the whole story from Chuck, and then she went to Blair to get Blair to talk Chuck out of running away from himself. Chuck has ALWAYS dressed like a rich 80-year-old man, and since his injury, he has a cane to go with his ancient ensembles.

Blair found out that Chuck was shot and that he had bought a ring for her (that he would not let robbers have). Blair acted like she wasn’t going to go to the train station to stop Chuck from disappearing, but of course she did. Meanwhile, Dan got back with Vanessa by having sex with her. Bro, you just had a BABY. Have you learned nothing about keeping it in your pants? But Dan’s baby, Milo, is so cute, and we love his little bear ears hat. Dan’s character has been so boring for so long, we don’t mind that he is saddled with fatherhood. It won’t slow the already crawling character down a bit.

The show’s writers managed to credibly get Blair into a beautiful red ball gown for her discussion with Chuck. Chuck expressed his wish to leave his old life and mistake behind, saying “I destroyed the only thing I ever loved.” Blair’s comeback? “It takes more than even you to destroy Blair Waldorf.” Amen sistah. Blair was at her best in this episode, convincing Chuck to come back and resume his life in a stunning scene where our hearts broke for both of them. (Did it look like Chuck was about to cry, but in a totally manly way, when Blair said she didn't love him anymore?) Also, those two actors make this show. Chuck decided to return to New York City, taking his French girl with him.

French Girl: You got me a ticket?
Chuck: We don’t need tickets. I’m Chuck Bass.

Wooooo, he’s back. Our pet peeve with Gossip Girl right now is Juliet. How can that actress be 24? She looks 30, and has no business playing a 19-year-old. (Stop it. Katie Cassidy is an amazing actress, and has been the light in otherwise shitty shows). Also, we are already bored with her scheming character. Can Blair take her down already? Serena returned home to find Nate with Juliet and Dan with Vanessa (and a baby).

Thank God the show left France. This blogger has trouble understanding words spoken in French accents. This episode is what we wanted to see in the premiere, rather than last week’s Serena/Blair fight. Better late than never.

Episode Grade- B


  1. Even with a surprise baby, Dan is still boring, just marginally less boring. I just don't that guy's appeal. The good news this week was that Little J's still gone, and now they've turned her room into a nursery! Ha!

  2. We actually miss Little J. She is more fun to hate than Georgina ever was. What's gossip girl without a little troll like that?
