I love any episode that starts with a time lapse, but this one gossip girl It shows that the tide is turning. gossip girl Officially gaining momentum.
The cardinal sin of the original series was Gossip Girl revealing itself as Lonely Boy.of gossip girl In 1.0, the person behind the post didn’t matter all that much, and by seeing it as Dan, the series lost a bit of its magic. Not to mention a tough choice and debunked by the stalwart, but digression. However, the wild goose chase behind unmasking next-gen GG is growing on me. The only question I foresee is what happens when the gossip cop approaches his Kate & Co. He just wants to kick the blackmailer off his back, but I could see him flipping over to save his own ass. I can’t help but wonder…they How long can a gig last?
It would be easy to guess that the blackmailer was Bergmann, but my brain is only half-masted while watching this show, so I’m betting on it. The Bergmanns have a real secret, and it’s clear that Obie’s mother is up to the task. Our favorite poor rich boy tries to find common ground with his family after learning from his sister that his mother left for America without telling him. his plan? bail on the boys’ trip to Aspen and hail a helicopter to the Hamptons, where Helena is camping. Aki and Max can’t allow their straight best friend to take on his family alone, so they secretly tag along with her girlfriend Audrey. Both believe they will not let Audrey know that their spring break plans have changed. It literally takes two seconds to send a text, but presumably these two are part of the low-rise Luddite club.
As I said before, I’m a big fan of Audrey, Aki, and Max, and I don’t mean their triad, but their tricks. I hope it stays strong throughout this season. Audrey’s jealousy and paranoia feel very real and I love the way she calls out Graham and demands he go straight to the Hamptons. Because, of course, he is a loser. passenger princess goal. I’m also just as obsessed with her frantic texts to Aki as I am with Obie sitting uncomfortably in the sauna with Aki and Max. Cheap!
I’m fed up with Julian and Graham, and I think he’s still using her as her father. Does this Nepo baby seem useless to your network? He’s the epitome of “What, no hugs?” And his overall energy is deeply hopeless. For Julian, Graham represents the exciting and unknown. He’s older, married, and off limits. For Graham, this behavior is pure pathetic. get a job! Stay away from her!
Zoya and Shan head to Philadelphia for fun while the Pussy Posse heads to the Hamptons. Watching them sip “shambucha” from flasks, which consists of an inch concoction from every liquor bottle in the house, is fun in a way that feels familiar. should not be gossip girl, but I loved this nod to the usual teenage antics. At the rave, of course, Shan has to perform to be on the show. She fakes Ace’s British accent when connecting with her friends and calls Zoya “Monet.” Little Z has no choice but to roll with it. Shan and her friends soon leave her Z and her friend’s younger brother (whose name I don’t remember) behind, and the two younger siblings have to kick it alone. One thing leads to another and… I think Zoya just lost her virginity????? (At least I don’t remember her and Obie having sex… Correct me if I’m wrong Please!) The next morning, her hookup is cold and distant. Realize it’s just stereotypical fuck! As they say, he hit it and quit it. When Zoya returns to her home, Nick apparently welcomes her with open arms.
I don’t think Gossip Girl would use Plan B to pick up Z, given that it was just discovered. And despite his superiority complex, Mike Schubin is a bigger idiot than ever imagined. Who links an individual’s iMessage to his work laptop and hands over banking information to an anonymous donor?Operation Scum Shubin seems like a no-brainer. He finally leaks his secret to Kate: he’s being blackmailed by an unknown person to announce Gossip Girl. Little does Jordan know that Mike’s parents are embroiled in their son’s story, and he is quick to warn him that the suspect has come down on the slouch. Mike rushes home and hopes to catch the culprit red-handed, but Kate sloppily delays his efforts, making her look more like a suspect. Bosses to get out, but can’t escape his inkling the next morning when he catches her and Jordan barricads himself in her apartment. Jordan plays White Knight — we don’t know if he’s acting, as I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s secretly in love with Kate — and Mike tells him to be the one extorting him. condemn.
My only question after watching this episode is where is Luna La?!
• Harris’ hot take: “Bisexuals got a great publicist during the pandemic. Who do you think came up with bisexual lighting?”
• Jordan tries his hand at copywriting. I wonder what they/they do.
• Obie recognizes elephants in the room sauna: “Three Kings…Three Musketeers”.
