Gossip Girl: The Bitch is Back
Jenny, I'm concerned about those extensions. There's no way you can make it work.
Chuck has infiltrated not only Blair’s waking hours, but her dreams as well. And who wouldn’t want to dream of Chuck Bass? As the war between the two former lovers escalates, everyone must run for cover. In an effort to increase the stakes, Chuck brings back the only platinum blonde who could turn Blair’s prim and stoic demeanor into mush.
This week’s episode of Gossip Girl touted the return of Jenny Humphrey, which surely caused some to cheer and others to groan loudly. Despite getting caught up in Blair and Chuck’s ring of destruction and reverting back to her mischievous ways, Jenny eventually realizes her folly. Determined to be more than a mere pawn in the gruesome twosome’s game, she leaves Manhattan and all the drama behind. Here are some other tidbits:
Best cameo: Tim Gunn. Fashionistas love this guy and so does Little J. If Eleanor Waldorf can’t make Jenny’s career, here’s just the guy to get the job done.
Worst excuse: Juliet leaves Nate’s warm bed to head over to the penitentiary and tells him she’s going to class. When Nate catches her red-handed, she tells him she’s a volunteer for the prison’s literacy program. This girl has an answer for everything and they’re all boring.
Best reveal: The dude in prison really is Juliet’s brother. Plus, we now know the identity of the mastermind behind this never-ending plan to destroy the Gossip Girl gang and the one sending Juliet ominous text messages (because you can’t do that from prison). Why Serena’s new professor and potential love interest, Colin, wants to destroy her remains a mystery. But, at least it explains why he was coming on so strong so soon.

Best description: Vintage crazy-ass Blair. Jenny’s spot on when summing up Blair’s current state of mind.
Worst sabotage: Blair stopped too low when she destroyed Jenny’s interview with Tim Gunn by writing “whore” in red paint on Jenny’s designs. When Jenny nabs a boyfriend, Blair can sleep with him in retaliation, but until then let’s keep her career trajectory out of the game.
Most mature: After spilling the beans publicly about losing her virginity to Chuck, Jenny grew up and hauled her behind off the island. Now, if she would just cut those hideous extensions off.
Best shanking: Nate’s dad gets jumped in prison by Juliet’s brother. Something’s got to show her she can’t fall in love with the target.
In the end, Chuck suggests a truce and Blair begrudgingly accepts. Chuck tenderly takes her hand and the girl is so stubborn she pulls it away and hides behind her bedroom door. Her face says it all, she wants him back, but her pride won’t allow her to admit it. Does she want to be right or does she want to be happy? The war ends, for now. And it couldn’t have come at a better time. Serena and Nate will need all their friends to fight the coming onslaught. What do you think?
