We adored Wednesday's Gossip Girl, especially the part we feared would suck: The flashbacks to Thanksgiving '06, where Nate was actually fun and cool, Blair was sick but happier, and Serena Van Der Woodsen was a serious problem child. In the course of one episode, we saw her undress in front of her best friend's boyfriend. Get drunk. Get high. Get caught by her mom. And maybe the best part, get almost run over by a car, while craving apple pie. Of course, Dan saved her at the last second from getting squished by a Saab, and this is a good time for us to remind you girls in high school, college, and anywhere with single men that Dan does not exist. Besides noticing our lack of Dan Humphrey, we also saw this: That whenever Serena's doing something naughty, she's wearing really cheap clothes. Hosing down Nate in Blair's bathtub? She was wearing Juicy sweats. Passed out from vodka on Blair's sofa? She looked like an L.L. Bean ad. And perhaps the biggest grievance of all - when Serena was drunk and roaming the streets of Brooklyn, she sported a massive leopard coat from Forever 21! Are Gossip Girl's costume designers trying to increase Serena's personal and moral value by upping her clothing allowance? Totally, and that's actually a really cool way to enhance the story. But there's one thing we can't forgive: That leopard coat and Blair Waldorf's dotted gray dress from Marc Jacobs? Those are in stores now. So how could our two favorite heroines have them a whole year early?! Oh well. Maybe Eleanor Waldorf is the vice president of the CFDA...
