I agree with Olivia that it was a surprisingly good episode despite the lack of Chuck and Blair. Not as sold on Derena as some are though. I think Nate had a point about Serena being vulnerable and Dan being an egomaniac. I've really grown to love Nate. Loved him scheming with Chuck. Blair's storyline was my favorite. I'm happy she's using her dark side in a productive way instead of just trying to be an entirely new person. I just want Chuck and Blair to succeed so we can finally see them as a couple. This waiting is tedious.
