Seventeen Candles - Episode Information (Gossip Girl episode 8)

Production Number: 108

Air Date: 2007-11-14

The privileged prep school teens on Manhattan's Upper East Side first learn that Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively, "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants") is back in town the way they learn all the important news in their lives -- from the blog of the all-knowing albeit ultra-secretive Gossip Girl. No one knows Gossip Girl's identity, but everyone in this exclusive and complicated vicious circle relies on her website and text messages for the latest scoop. Even Serena's closest friend, Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester, "Entourage"), is surprised to find that Serena has suddenly ended her self-imposed exile to boarding school and returned to Manhattan.

"According to the Catholic church, mortal sin can only be absolved through the sacred act of confession. But it looks like a certain wasp princess has recently found herself desperately in need of a little unburdening. And who is the man upstairs to discriminate?" After the sex in the limo between Chuck and Blair, it's all about regret right? Not really. Even if Blair confessed her sins, there's Chuck, reliving a moment that he'll never forget! But what's another event/party that will shine a spotlight on Blair Waldorf? Her seventeenth birthday party! So what are we expecting? The truth, may I say?!

I think this is the episode where I begin to enjoy Blair's company on the show. Maybe it makes my Chuck all happy, but I don't know. She's quite enjoyable and funny about the whole thing between her and Chuck. When it came to her confession and her call from Nate, which was basically a call from God, it couldn't be any funnier! But poor Ms. Waldorf can't have a perfect 17th birthday. I mean she says that Nate and Blair never broke up, later Gossip Girl posts up a picture of Nate and a strange girl (who was Jenny), which later everyone found out. Doesn't that suck? And the fact that he never showed up to her birthday! Yikes! Thank God Chuck got her mind off of him. The necklace she kept hold for Nate to buy was actually brought by Chuck himself and his "love". What couldn't be more of a better present? Oh, and all of the Chuck and Blair scenes during the party was so adorable! Chuck having butterflies and asking what the word "like" means. How can you not see that Chuck is in love with Blair Waldorf?!

Look at what the cat dropped in? Allison Humphrey, you can say. Congrats to the Humphrey (I guess), but I was cheering on for Rufus and Lily to be together ever since! Hopefully Allison leaves pretty soon so Rufus and Lily can get their groove on! But Rufus and Allison are cute... I guess for now, I'm happy, for Rufus that is.

Oh, I'd like to mention, Serena playing Guitar Hero?! My God, she's the goddess of Guitar Hero! I bow down to her.

Also, I like to say that I like this whole Nate and Jenny thing going on. I sort of enjoyed them in the books, so I'm looking forward to what the show will deliver with these two characters.

Serena found out about Chuck and Blair and the first. So what is she going to do? Have a little pep-talk to Blair about it? Is this Chuck and Blair relationship is all about friends with benefits? What's going to happen with Nate and Jenny? Is it going to be more than just a friend bump-in? I guess we have to find out in the next episode. "You Know You Love Me, XOXO, Gossip Girl."
