I’ve added six HD, logoless episode clips from Gossip Girl’s midseason finale episode: Riding in Town Cars with Boys to the media section.
I’ve also added 180+ HD, logoless screencaptures to the gallery.
Enjoy and please excuse the rant…
This episode was such a disappointment on so many levels. The lack of NS really astounds me at this point. They seem to be in the perfect place to try their relationship out again. Both have matured so much, and seem to seek the same thing in life. They want to be taken seriously, and now they are. They’ve become so much more then the Golden children of the UES always so prized for their beauty. I can only assume that the writers are determined to play out some ridiculous BDS triangle, and they need Serena on the hook for that. It’s a shame though because it’s totally stunting her. At this point there is absolutely no reason she should give one damn about Dan. DS has been ripped apart since the first season finale, but Blair has to be the final nail. Dan is more obsessed with and in love with Blair than he ever seems to have been with Serena. Her feelings for him make absolutely no sense in relation to previous seasons, her growth as a character, or their respective arcs in the long run. Plus, her feelings for him are so outrageously ridiculous and offensive to Serena as a character. He treats her like SHIT. ALL THE TIME. Even in this episode!!! I actually find the stark contrast between how he treats and views Blair to how he treats and views Serena astonishing. Nothing Blair does seems to phase him while EVERYTHING Serena does makes Dan upset and he continues to blame her for everything, just as he always has. Honestly, how can these writers actually believe that DS are a healthy, viable option at all?
