GOSSIP GIRL “Empire of the Son” Review

GOSSIP GIRL “Empire of the Son” Season 4 Episode 17 – What did you think of tonight’s episode of Gossip Girl? Did I just hear that right? No new episodes of Gossip Girl until April 18th?! Please don’t tell me I have to wait that long to see the kiss between Blair and Dan. So, let’s talk about the characters.

Serena: I think its for the best if Ben and Serena part ways. They both come with way too much baggage. That’s why I always liked Dan and Serena together – at least Dan was semi-normal and undamaged. Although it sucked that Ben’s mom went to Russell, I can’t say that I blame her.

Chuck: Wow. Chuck finally got what he wanted but at a price. Bart Bass was responsible for a fire that killed Raina’s mom? That would explain why Russell was out to get Chuck. What do you think he’ll do when he sees Blair with Dan? I think he’ll probably be angry, but he’s just been chasing Raina so I don’t think he has a right to.

Blair and Dan: I never thought I would have to bucket these two characters together in a review – that is also what makes them coming together sort of brilliant. The only thing that makes me think they will not hook up is that they made such a huge deal about them becoming friends that I really can’t see them forming a relationship. What do you think? Dan and Blair or Chuck and Blair? Personally, Chuck and Blair will always be the ‘it’ couple for me but I wouldn’t mind seeing Dan and Blair together either.

Lily: Of all the things Lily has done this season, she finally did something that I agree with which is turn herself in and clear Ben’s name. What does this mean for Lily? Jail time? The fact that her mother and ex husband are rushing to town doesn’t sound good. Even if Lily assembles all her troops will it be enough to save her?

Nate: Although I wasn’t crazy about Raina and Chuck as a couple, I think that Raina and Nate are cute together. They both have the right amount of daddy issues. What about you – which couple did you like the best?

Vanessa: Vanessa is back in town – are you happy or not happy? Personally I don’t really care. I loved Vanessa until she turned into another Jenny Humphry. Do you think she has changed her ways? I guess only time will tell.

Leave me a comment and let me know what you thought of tonight’s episode of Gossip Girl. Also, since the show won’t be coming back on the air until April 18th, feel free to leave me your predictions for future episodes.
