Quotes:
Blair Waldorf:Chuck, NYU is not the Upper East Side. They don't care about Constance, or social hierarchy. They don't care that I'm Blair Waldorf! It's over.
Chuck Bass:How can you do this to me?
Blair Waldorf:What are you talking about?
Chuck Bass:I'm Chuck Bass. And I told you I love you. You're saying I'm easier to win over than a bunch of pseudo-intellectual homesick malcontents. You really insult me like that?
Blair Waldorf:That's not how it is.
Chuck Bass:It's exactly how it is. The next time you forget you're Blair Waldorf, remember I'm Chuck Bass. And I love you.

Gossip Girl 'Dan De Fleurette' Review, 6 October 2009
Author: Elizabeth from Chicago

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

When Blair handed her flame over to Jenny she didn't contemplate on her throwing it in the dump to burn elsewhere. The one thing Constance could tolerate was change especially the type of change Jenny delivered with that rusty speech. Really who was she kidding?

The three girls attempting to replace Hazel, Penelope and Isabel came off as mere imitators. They were a trio we could have done without.

Surely Jenny's epiphany granted Blair an opportunity to ditch her tormented life in NYU and seek higher familiar ground where she once reigned. I actually expected that Blair would move in Constance to take over and she would surely have a face to face duel with Jenny, but my expectations proved to be too high. The three wannabees attempt to throw spiteful slander towards Jenny, was water-down and frankly made me laugh at their endeavor.

We can surely see how Blair feels; she doesn't really have friends and every person she meets at NYU couldn't care less of her whereabouts. She misses Constance and the Queen B treatment she once received. Which explains why she tried to recreate her annual slumber party that expired last season, the one thing that actually gave her status.

It was quite refreshing welcoming our guest stars; Tyra Banks and Hilary Duff to have some Gossip Girl moments with us. Hilary Duff was more reserved and her acting matured since familiar shows like 'Lizzie McGuire' and 'Cheaper by the Dozen'. Hilary Duff's portrayal of Olivia Burke was something we've seen before, but she made her character her own.

An actress who just wants to have a normal life, without the publicity resembled such films like 'First Daughter' meets 'Nothing Hill'. Olivia is fixated on being normal, dating an ordinary guy and simply having the life of a normal teenager.

I believed that Tyra's role was the craziest, especially when she came out arguing about her "Too blue, too pink and too red" outfits she was preparing to wear for the Movie Premiere. Do co-stars often act so out of sort? She still carried her role like the essence of Tyra Banks, which is why Ursula's entrance embraced a certain level of humor.

'Dan De Fleurette' had an essence of glamor and austere moments, but there were also some rushed story lines as well. It felt as though they hurried us through getting to know Olivia Burke, Ursula, their trials and mistrials all in the matter of a few minutes. The scene where Ursula lost her cherished part was forlorn, but it came off as more comedy than drama.

I was happy to see Serena get a job, but I don't understand her obsession to find herself and her resentfulness against Brown. At least we know that Cece is doing well, but the entire ordeal felt like a cover up for Kelly Rutherford to make her premiere in the fourth installment and Cece's presumed illness was fabricated as a play for time.

I actually look forward to seeing Olivia and Dan together, although at some point her publicity could hamper their relationship. She is surely a step up from Georgina; more emotional than physical.

We also know that Nate is going to school so that's also refreshing, but I believe that his study time with his old pal Dan was an excuse to keep Nate in the story. That also points out the little screen time Chace Crawford usually gets on Gossip Girl.

The Georgina revelation with Scott was predictable and could have been done less cheesy, but I did feel Vanessa's despair when Scott proved to be distant.

I always look forward to Chair scenes, but they really needed to mellow down the love talk, we know.

The storyline seems to be going somewhere now. Blair is regaining her control again, Serena is 'finding herself', Chuck has his own hotel business (although there wasn't any advancement there), Dan is moving on and Jenny likes Yogurt again.

The writers have a noticeable formula the put into making this season for the better, but with the exception of the guest star appearances 'Dan De Fleurette' only displayed a portion of the standard I know Gossip Girl usually delivers.

I still don't understand why the photographer would care why he was getting paid to take pictures, just do the job. Even though it was quite obvious that Chuck paid him.

"Aren't you Blair Waldorf?" Right. Blair you actually fell for that one?
