As I arrived at my new apartment in New York yesterday approximately three and a half hours behind schedule, I found myself telling my cab driver that all’s well that end’s well – the delayed flight, the two-hour line at the LaGuardia taxi stand, the obscenely overpriced plate of chicken fingers at the Atlanta airport Houlihans – it was all fine because it had ultimately lead me to my much-awaited destination safe and sound. Little did I know, my feelings about the evening’s season finale of Gossip Girl would be much the same; most of the episode left me a little disappointed, but the ending more than made up for it.
I’m on pirated wifi at the moment and was only able to watch an extremely blurry online feed of last night’s episode, during half of which the sound was 30 seconds ahead of the picture, so I don’t think that any recap I could write of the show would be anything resembling coherent. Regular HD episode of Gossip Girl are confusing enough as it is. But let’s talk about last night’s finale and the cliffhangers for next season in the comments. Also, is anyone else kind of enraged that the writers would dare to compare Dan effing Humphrey to Jonathan Safran Foer? Blasphemy, I tell you. Not to mention that exposÃ©s of Upper East Side life are a little more Plum Sykes than JSF.
