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.

~*-Time for the memories-*~
3 June 2008 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

This holiday episode was only an excuse not to advance the plot with the huge scandal Blair will be forced to face. The only thing happened was Blair's confession to Serena, which is more like intimate. They fight again and then they get back together.

Thanks to their memories, we can now understand Blair a little more. You know what they say, nobody is that mean unless they suffered much. Blair's life used to be perfect, with her family, with Nate... even with Serena. She was nice and protective of Serena, she thought Dan was trying to take advantage of her. Well, with her life being like that, it's hard to adapt like Blair had to. A mother like hers, a life like hers, without her father... her entirely universe was mostly found out of pain.

The shock was Da, Serena, Jenny and Eric finding out the truth about their parents. And it's nice they had happy family moments. Even Blair got along with her mother.

My favorite part of the episode was the scene where Nate, Serena and Blair are in the bathroom and they play around in the water. This shows how good friends they were
