"So did you like this Valley Girls prequel?"
Brittany Snow as 'Lily Rhodes'
I am sure interested in what Lily's life was, it somewhat mirrors Serena's life now. How was Brittany Snow as Lily Rhodes? Did you think she looked like Lily. The transitions between Lily Rhodes and Lily van der Woodsen were well done, as I found myself comparing both individuals and they were somewhat the same. I know they are the same person, but think about it, has Lily van der Woodsen ever really grown up? There is still a hint of Lily Rhodes in there, mixed with a bit of her mother's (Cece) cliche moments.
Telling Serena 'Mother Knows Best' ...and
Getting Serena arrested for punishment, most moms take away allowances, sentence their children to one buwan without telebisyon or a cellphone, but Lily gets Serena arrested...
Serena getting arrested was done very sloppy in 'The Wrath of Con'. I believed the ipakita had met it's final moments and decided to just pull the final Wild Card.
Surprisingly, Valley Girls, picked up much better than I'd anticipated.
Still for some strange reason I thought I would be seeing Georgina in this installment, since they just dropped the amapola and Gabriel theme like a hot potato! What happened to Georgina's words to Blair? Blair
- "I don't think Hesus would approve of that." Georgina
- "Well, you can tell Hesus that the asong babae is back!"
Where is the asong babae now!
Anyway I guess that would be picked up in 'The Goodbye Gossip Girl'.
Even though they needed to use this entire episode to promote Valley Girls, it's not right leaving us hanging in the balance there. I am sure amapola would not hang around until prom was finished.
Another main theme in the Valley Girls theme was Prom.
Prom signified the end of senior taon and it seemed to have brought an end to many things as well;
Blair and Nate
Lily and Rufus
...and a beginning for Serena and Dan
Lily and her Mom
It also looked like Nelly, Hazel, Penelope and Isabel were up to no good ...again. It only took Chuck to clean up the mess they created for Blair.
There latest scheme; giving Blair false hope of becoming Prom reyna at the same time crowning Nelly. Those girls really need to grow up! According to Nelly
"If we do this stuff in college, people would think we're Pathological!"
-> What about Now ladies! What would people think of you when you do those things Now!
Blair got the crown non-the-less, with Chuck's help, sa pamamagitan ng helping Blair be happy on the day. Chuck is always madami sappy around Blair, but don't you think it's funny that even though Chuck gave Blair everything she wanted, she still ended up splitting with Nate! This episode had so many fond moments, that I had to capture it in dialogue! Blair
- "Serena's been in jail for over four hours, she's already served madami time than Nicole Richie and Lindsay Lohan combined" Chuck
- "She's a socialite mistakenly accused of stealing a bracelet, I doubt they're working her over with the phone book" Nate
- "I just can't believe she would actually have her own daughter arrested I mean who does that!" Chuck
- "Someone who's never been arrested!"
-> With reference to Lily of course, does this mean that Chuck doesn't really know the real Lily, because she has been arrested before! Vanessa
- "So was Lily blown away?" Dan
- "Well not really" Jenny
- "Yeah he never actually ah..." Dan
- "...proposed! Minor detail, made a proposal" Jenny
- "Kind of the key ingredient to the recipe"

Brittany Snow does look like Kelly Rutherford, except the difference in eye color. Brittany's eyes are blue and Kelly's are grayish-brownish. Although I read in an artikulo that your eye-color does change as you grow older...
This was my paborito episode of Gossip Girl this season. Some may disagree with me, but the pagganap was solid, the flashback scenes were well placed and everything just fell into place. I am actually interested in the Valley Girls prequel! Gossip Girl
may not have the same spunk like Season one, and this episode might not make up for some past episodes they just passed us of with, but sa pamamagitan ng the length of this review I'm sure you must already know that I liked this one. Definitely a different take on the pangkalahatang series.
I just hope that they would conclude the Georgina mode quickly and I hope it would end better than her last encounter in Season one.
So, are you excited for The Goodbye Gossip Girl?
