Harold Waldorf mentions Blair's favorite movie in which a cat is called "Cat". This film is Blake Edwards' "Breakfast at Tiffany's" (1961) starring Audrey Hepburn. The actress and the film are both huge influences throughout the first season with numerous allusions made about them. See more »
I enjoyed this episode. However, I didn't love it. I probably only like it as much as I do because of the fact that it's a holiday-themed episode, a Christmas episode. I love Christmas episodes, and this was a big part of the reason why this episode got a 6 out of 10, instead of a 5 out of 10.
In this episode, it's Christmas time, and everyone's getting ready. Blair's Father, Harold, comes home to celebrate the holidays with her. He also brings a very unexpected guest, his lover Roman. Blair, and her Mother, find it difficult to act happy, when they are anything but. Meanwhile, Jenny, and Vanessa help Serena plan a Christmas surprise for Dan. And Dan, and Jenny's Mother, leaves, finally.
Last appearance of: Alison Humphrey, thank God.
Overall, I give this episode a 6 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Good.
