Is The Takedown Too Much for Queen B on Gossip Girl?

Though Blair, over the years, has managed to pull off great schemes, plans, tricks and takedowns, this episode shows that our Queen B might not be able to handle it all. Failing a paper is unheard of for our queen. Admitting she’s wrong? Never would have happened. Willingly venturing to Brooklyn? That really happened!
Also, I am beyond excited for next week’s episode, which looks promising for the unlikely pair, B and D. D seems like he’s falling for her- his writing a blog was a sure way to make it clear.
As for Ben… I think I may be starting to actually like him. He seems like he is doing good for the van der Woodsen-Bass-Humphrey clan, but we must not forget that he did do jail time, regardless of his innocence.
Is N really going to betray his oldest friend, C, for R? She’s not that cute and she’s still kind of a stuck-up brat.  Even though it seems that Nate has melted her a little bit, I still disapprove of the Midwestern gal.
On that note, I hope that Russell and Raina both follow Damien’s lead and disappear because they seem to just complicating the lives of our native Manhattanites. Tragic.
Is D going to hate V forever? I mean, I guess I would too, if she was in on a plan that ultimately turned into Serena’s near-death experience. Though V claims that she is an outsider, she certainly found her place among the Upper East Side crew, and for a while seemed very comfortable there.
Will B and D finally hook up? Will it blossom into the unthinkable romance?
Will B and S work out all their differences?
Will V ever be accepted back into the elite social circle?
Where is Little J? I think E might actually need her…
Will Damien disappear forever?
Will L and R be able to keep up this charade for the other R?
Does N actually like Baby R? I hope not…
Until next week… XOXO
