Eric is falling down the rabbit hole, which is depressing. He is always left behind. I hate that Damien is about to use him to take down Ben.
Speaking of Ben, apparently he'll be joining us for a while. Of course Serena is chasing him (pathetic) and now Rufus is helping Ben by letting him stay at the loft in Brooklyn. I find this whole storyline creepy.
Almost as creepy as the Thorpe versus Bass Industries drama. Nate tries to get his dad fired from Thorpe, Chuck wants to sleep with Thorpe's daughter and Thorpe's daughter wants to sleep with anyone she can. Trouble, all around.
The best part of this week's episode was Blair and Dan's competition for number one intern at W Magazine. I think they have great chemistry, though I don't want them to hook up.
Before we part ways for the week Upper East Siders, was it just me, or were Gossip Girl's winter/January/flu season themed lines all completely lame tonight? Step it up, GG writing team!
