The One With The Masquerade Ball...
14 June 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really enjoy this episode. I like the aspect of a Masquerade Ball and I like how rude Blair is.

In this episode, there's a Masquerade Ball coming up and everyone's getting ready. Jenny really wishes she can go, but Blair forbids her. Jenny ends up going after some kind words from Serena. But this makes for an awkward evening when everyone thinks Jenny is Serena, and Nate professes his love for her. Meanwhile, Dan's childhood friend, Vanessa, returns to town and he has to chose between her and Serena.

Best part of the episode: The Masquerade Ball.

Worst part of the episode: The Dan stuff. Who cares, right?

Overall, I give this episode a 7 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Great.
