A Personal Favourite
23 May 2018 | by dougmacdonaldburrSee all my reviews

I will get my one criticism out of the way first. There is one point where Blair says she wants to be like Hillary Clinton. That made my skin crawl because that woman is the antichrist without any of the charm. I am willing to look the other way on that though. This really is one of my favourite episodes the show has ever done. I can keep this vague enough to not give spoilers, but for once Serena is put in her place. I love this because I have always hated Serena. I think she is a stuck up B**** and I don't care who knows it. Blair and Chuck are on top form here. Their chemistry is electric. The costumes, party setting and overall pageantry is top notch. Dan and Nate get along well, which I always like. They have an awesome bromance. We also get to see Jenny at her most diabolical, which is great because she might just be the hottest girl on the show (a tie with my BFF Blair) This episode really is a hidden gem, and it deserves a higher rating.
