This week's episode of Gossip Girl was all about the Mamas. Ben's mom backed Lily into a corner, Lily turned herself in, and we learned Raina's mother may have been killed by Chuck's dad, Bart. This sounds a bit like General Hospital, no?
For me, the highlight of this hour was the incredibly smart writing. A few of my favorite lines:
DOROTA: " I learned this from Mr. Humphrey's New York magazine that I found in your room! Your new secrecy, calmness with Mr. Chuck, supporting Serena's new boyfriend, and last week I find a NOVA documentary in your Netflix queue! You and Lonely Boy are having an affair!"
DAN: "Serena, Eric, Lily, they are going to need us now more than ever."
BLAIR: "And not 'us' - Dan and Blair, individual entities. Two proper nouns separated by a conjunction."
DAN: "Or a comma, if mentioned in a list."
BLAIR: "Which is rare, since we have nothing in common and are in fact, opposites."
I have to hand it to you, GG writing team. You were on point tonight!
Onto other observations:
- How gorgeous was Lily in that nude colored dress?
