Last night’s Gossip Girl, “While You Weren’t Sleeping,” is mostly a Blair-hits-the-breaking-point episode, which is a shame, as I never want to see our girl fail. Otherwise, it’s all secret affairs, Bass Industries intrigue, and Nate getting pimped. The ghost of Juliet haunts the fringes of the action like, well, like Georgina used to. Could we have them both in the season finale? In the meantime, a CAPER! As you may already know, the only thing I love more than a caper is a con. Or maybe I really do love capers a little bit more.
The Best Part of Waking Up
Is most assuredly finding your ex-con roommate and your ex-girlfriend/sister having stupid romance talk about toast. Ben says Serena fell asleep playing Scrabble, and Dan goes for the full Humphrey: he calls Serena a liar and stupid by replying that Serena doesn’t like/play Scrabble. Serena gives him a great “Why do you always have to be a dick” look in response and offers coffee, but Dan bolts for “a meeting . . . lunch” in Midtown.
