Song Lyrics

"With Blair's boyfriend, Nate helping closing the family yacht for the season, Blair is free to focus on the most important event of the fall, her annual sleepover. A tradition since the year 2000, each one more decadent then the last. No expensive ore reputation is spared." Not only is Blair's annual sleepover is on the way, it's also Dan and Serena's first date. So what are we expecting? Trouble? Love? Well I guess we just have to find out...

Have I mentioned that I'm in love with Dan and Serena as a couple? The little sneak for Dan's "excitement" by seeing Serena changing was just too adorable and getting caught by her own mother. Shame, but hey, it's the love of his life, what can you do about it? Who knew Serena can be so excited for a date, especially with Dan Humphrey? It definitely means more than sex, that's all I have to say. Serena is definitely starting a whole new life, for sure. At first, the dinner made me nervous because of Serena's face, but at the end, it made everything up between those two. Man, I cannot for these two to go the long way this season!

Since Serena is on a date with Dan, Blair gets left alone with her other friends at Blair's sleepover. But quickly, Blair, of course, found a replacement. Who no other than Jenny Humphrey! I love the significance when Jenny entered the sleepover with a Hello Kitty sleeping bag and bunny slippers. Definitely shows the innocence of the girl and at the end, as a so-called dare-devil, or in other words, bad ass. I love that change, but not on Jenny because she's suppose to be the innocence of the show, but not anymore. Her adventures were definitely "legendary". Jenny being the new Blair Waldorf? I don't see it yet, but it'll definitely great to see the things she's going through now, since she's heading to the steps of Blair's shoes of being the next queen.

One quickie, where's my precious Chuck Bass? That was a downer, the only one I think in this episode...

So what's in story for little Humphrey? Is she slowly heading to an all-new young Blair Waldorf and being the new hot chick that just hit town? Will Nate finally end things to tell Serena he's still head over heels for her? What about Dan and Serena? Will they still last with the popular and rich society blocking Dan's way to Serena? Well we have to find out next week... I dare you. "You Know You Love Me, XOXO, Gossip Girl."
