Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Chuck Bass (credit only)
Alison Humphrey (as Susie Misner)


Although it is Thanksgiving, hardly anyone has the holiday spirit. Blair and Serena have a fight once Serena admits that she saw Blair with Chuck, and Blair orders Serena to keep it to herself. Meanwhile, Nate and his family share a strained Thanksgiving meal before Mr. Archibald ends up in the hospital after a suicide attempt. Having been uninvited by Blair to the Waldorf Thanksgiving meal, the Van der Woodsen family has dinner with the Humphreys at their loft in Brooklyn, and the tension between Lily, Allison, and Rufus is palpable. Back in Manhattan in the Waldorf penthouse, Blair revisits her bout of bulimia after discovering that her mother forbade her father to join them for Thanksgiving. Throughout the entire episode, there are flashbacks of last year's Thanksgiving involving how Dan met an stoned Serena for the first time as well as Blair's Thanksgiving with her father and mother before their seperation. There is a stark contrast between its joy and the present's strife. Written by Polly Jean

The Flashback episode should have been in 2006, it being 'a year before'. Yet while The Humphrey's are eating Thanksgiving dinner we see a poster of the film Zodiac in the background of their house. Zodiac was not released until mid 2007. See more »

Gossip Girl: [voice-over] As per Gossip Girl's Thanksgiving tradition, I'm trading in my laptop for stovetop. And for the next 16 hours, the only thing I'm dishing is seconds. When the cat's away, the mice will play. Have fun, little rodents.

The One With Thanksgiving...
19 August 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this episode quite a bit. It's funny, it's interesting, we find out more about the characters, and we even meet new characters.

In this episode, it's Thanksgiving, and Blair is hosting. Tensions rise with her and Serena, as Serena has just discovered Blair's hookup with one Chuck Bass. The Van der Woodsen family go over to the Humphrey's Brooklyn loft, where tensions also rise with Lily, Allison, and Rufus. Meanwhile, Nate and his family share an awkward meal. Throughout the entire episode, we have flashback scenes from last year's Thanksgiving, which gives us a bigger insight to the characters, and we see how much things change is three-hundred and sixty- five days.

First appearance of: Harold Waldorf.

Overall, I give this episode an 8 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Awesome.
