The final season of Gossip Girl is only 10 episodes long and we're already on episode 3! This means that instead of having several episodes with Blair (Leighton Meester) preparing for her first fashion show, it is happening this week. After last week's disaster with Blair's profile in WWD thanks to some terrible decisions by Blair, will the runway show fare any better? Spoilers ahead.
Gossip Girl is all about the big events and with Blair at the helm you know that she will be in a control freak mood. We don't often see Blair asking for help but tonight you will see Blair reaching out to Serena (Blake Lively). Blair would like Serena to be her face of Waldorf Designs, a role that Serena doesn't want to take and it is clear that she wants nothing to do with her former BFF.
What Serena does want is to impress Sage (Sofia Black-D'Elia) and this fashion show looks like it will be Serena's way in to Sage's good books. It's bad news for Serena though, as at the end of last week Sage revealed to her friends (or minions perhaps) that she wants Serena out of her father's life. Serena decides to help Blair with her request after Sage tells Serena how much she wants to be Blair's 'It Girl.' This is all one big manipulation and it looks like Sage has some scandalous plans. Are you interested in Sage and her plans to mess with Serena or do you want them to focus more on Serena and Blair? The fashion show will feature some famous faces including Alexa Chung, who will be playing herself.
There is scandal beyond Blair's show as Nate (Chace Crawford) publishes the first part of Dan's (Penn Badgley) serialized article. This causes a huge stir as Nate is going with Dan's wishes of publishing full names. It also produces a serious threat, who is in danger? One storyline that I'm finding hard to get excited about is Chuck's (Ed Westwick) investigation into his father's past. This will continue tonight as Chuck tries to find out who the other person is in the photo that Amira (Andrea Gabriel) left him. How are you finding this story?
