Gasmii! Alright, I’m going to be honest here and tell you straight up that what
we have this week is what I like to call a “Busy Work” episode of Gossip Girl;
it serves no real purpose, they’re just giving it to you to tide you over until
next week. There’s probably a fancy name for it in the business, but from what I
gather, it’s an episode of a show that could easily be taken out of the entire
season, and nobody would care. Naturally, the writers decided this was the
the time to give Eric a plotline…kinda. Despite all this, there’s still fun to
be had by all, and we see a new side to a few of our favorite (least favorite)
characters. Join me after the jump!
It’s Halloween time in the Upper East Side, and we begin our episode with a shot of
Rufus carving KISS pumpkins. I was a bit skeptical of this at first, because I know for
a fact that there are people you can hire to decorate for you. Then I realized that
Rufus is probably the kind of guy that is really into all that arts and crafts-y shit because
he has nothing better to occupy his time. He’s totally that Dad who is in the midst of an
extended mid-life crisis; He doesn’t have a job, his son is at school, and his
daughter and other various pseudo-children are too busy doing more “work” in one day than he’s done in three years.
“Okay, almost done…just in time for my woodworking class, but I have to be back before two, or else I won’t have time to sprinkle the jack-o-lantern cookies…”
