Storyline

Blair's estranged father, Harold, comes home for the Christmas holidays with an unexpected guest: his gay lover Roman. Both Blair and her mother, Eleanor, find it difficult to hide their disappointment while Blair hatches another underhanded plan to get rid of Roman for good. Meanwhile, Jenny and Vanessa help Serena plan the best Christmas surprise ever for Dan, who may have a surprise of his own in mind for Serena. Chuck phones Blair from Europe and informs her that Nate has joined him in Monaco, worrying Blair that Chuck may disclose the details of their hook-up. Also, Rufus refuses to remain the understanding husband any longer after Alison's former lover calls the house. Written by Anonymous

The One With Christmas...
6 October 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

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.
