Vannessa desperately trying to have her mom's approval, teams up with Blair to do the honor of delivering the freshman taost at NYU, but what will be the price she has to pay? Dan takes Olivia to meet Rufus and Lily, which leads to all sorts of problems for the new couple. Meanwhile, Serena and Nate team up to help Carter Baizen.

>:(< Why Blair, why? I am so disappointed in her. She had to know that Chuck would have just kissed the guy if she asked. What was the point in tricking him? I feel so bad for Chuck right now. He's been so incredibly sweet to her, and he was doing so well because he felt like he had her support. And now this. I know that they need conflict to make the show interesting, but I just didn't really understand Blair's motivation. I'm okay with them having problems. I'd just like them to make sense. And one of the things I really wanted for this season was a Halloween episode, just because I really wanted a Chuck/Blair couple costume. They were so close! *sigh*

I did like getting a little more Vanessa back story even if I don't really care about her character. I love the actress who played her mom. She was on Angel and Firefly.

I'm sad that Carter's gone. I thought Blake Lively did a really good job in the scene where Serena says goodbye to him.

Um...I can't even think of what else I wanted to say. I'm too sad about Chuck and Blair. I can't beleive that my two favorite tv couples broke up in less than a week. :sulk:

I wouldn't worry too much about Chuck and Blair. This break can only be good for them. Blair has a lot of growing up to do and she can't do that with Chuck always there making her feel good when she makes crappy choices. She needs to make mistakes and own up to them on her own. She needs consequences.

Blair does need to grow up a bit. I want to cringe a bit at her minions but it is very Blair to have them. I loved what Lily said to her, it was kind of her to point it out.

Vanessa though OMG I wanted to scream some sense into her. I think her mom was right about what the school is turing her into...or maybe it is just bringing out her true character. I thought the end when it was Vanessa and Blair at the table together was kind of fitting for the episode.

I think I like Olivia, she seems really sweet and fun. I wish we'd heard her speech though.

I liked that Nate was interacting with Serena again...wasn't too impressed with his reason for doing it but I liked them together.

I am not opposed to a Serena and Nate relationship if it means getting to actually see Chace on screen!

Yes, this was the most interesting Nate plot since his father went to prison. I hope they continue to use him as more than just eye candy. (Although, I'm not at all opposed to the eye candy. Yum.)

And I'm actually feeling much better about Chuck and Blair today. I think what bothered me the most was that I just didn't understand why Blair did what she did. But then I rememberd her conversation with Vanessa where she was saying that she never left her fate in anyone else's hands, and I think that goes back to what Danielle was saying after the first episode. She doesn't trust Chuck. She didn't trust him enough to just ask him to do the kiss for her which as an audience member seemed like such the obvious thing to do. But I guess it's not as obvious to her, and I think that it makes sense considering how many of the people she loves betrayed her--Serena, Nate, her mother, her father, and Chuck so, so many times. What she did was awful and she DOES definitely need to do some growing up, but I think this may also show them that saying "I love you" isn't the fix all patch that they thought it was going to be. Finally hearing the three words, eight letters didn't just erase all of the times she'd didn't hear them.

Oh! Excellent point Gwen! Words are just words. You need the actions to back them up.
