Gossip Girl “I Am Number Nine”: Never too late to say sorry

This is the second episode in a row this season that mainly has silly stories and focus on annoying characters or give an annoying portrayal of beloved characters. I did not hate it but it was O.K , though the Spectator story is getting interesting I feel like Nate’s involvement in the whole story and his persuit of a journalism career  is unbelievable to the character, I don’t understand why the character of Nate played by the always sexy Chase Crawford is never given any important story. The new Vanessa ( a homicide-provoking character that has no depth or necessity) aka Charlie is involved in the story too and has an eye for Nate ,it seems like gossip girl chose one character to combine what is annoying about Vanessa and Jenny and compressed it into one more attractive package, I don’t hate her but I am not a big fan either. Serena and Dan’s friendship is on the rocks and I have to admit I like it better when Dan calls Serena out on her crap,for me Serena gets away with everything and though she never really does anything evil I never really believe her or trust her. This season she  is trying to find a career which I admire and she tries to protect Dan but the way she walks into trouble and misunderstandings in a way that annoys me, we all had that friend that things happen around but nothing really is their fault. Blair is having one last mean girls competition  to find out who is going to be the next bride’s maid which seemed childish after all the things Blair went through but then again going through all that stress I understand wanting to go back to simpler times where Blair was in control of what happens to her. What makes me sad about Blair is how much I feel like she is trying to survive all the things that happen arround her which is not what we are used to in Blair, she always seems so in control and so focused that whenever I start to feel she is trapped like now with  her pregnancy and marriage to Louis sadness settles in my heart. Speaking of Louis we get to see his bad side and for Chair fans they were cheering waiting for him to give Blair enough reason to leave him and realistically we know the wedding will no go through for one reason or another, what will happen to the baby?…I don’t know.

Chuck is trying to heal and yet hides Blair from his therapist because it is the deepest,ugliest truth there is. Chuck’s worst fear was that he will be alone and never being loved, he was loved unconditionally by Blair and still managed to ruin it. I would not have accepted Chuck to stay the same after a huge blow such as losing Blair it makes sense for his character to either try to be a better person or become a worse person. The scenes between Chuck and Blair are always the best of any episode and after Chuck discovers that Louis is paying his therapist for information he exposes him in front of Blair, later to go to her penthouse and apologize for everything he ever did, he accepted his role in the ruin of their relationship and gave Blair the apology she needed, she asks him if there anything else he needs to say and the look in his eye suggests yes there is a lot more to say but he chooses not to say it . We know now that Blair is doubting her relationship with Louis either because he is starting to bore her or because she doesn’t love him as much as she loves Chuck,he is the mature choice but not necessarily the best one. All ends with Dan loses his movie deal and is back to being a nobody and Chuck leaves his engagement ring to Blair on the steps of  Harry Winston and no one gets what they really want.

Next episode features a Chuck Bass charity party and a possible chair hook up.
