Gossip Girl Episode 9 – They Shoot Humphreys, Don’t They?

By | May 15, 2017

I could not wait to watch Gossip Girl this week! It is no stranger to hotties, well…exploring each other’s hotness, but “They Shoot Humphreys, Don’t They?” teases of a ménage à trois. In this one Gossip Girl episode, will we watch Gossip Girl faves turn from risky to risqué?

Dan and Vanessa are determined to get Olivia to stay in college and ditch the movie sequel she’s being pressured to do by showing her the ultimate college experience. How will this threesome feel the next morning? The movie is a no-go.

Remember when I questioned how these Gossip Girl episodes were going to keep up with college and high school antics? This episode merges their worlds with a dance. It’s cotillion time, and Jenny is dead set on having Graham Collins be her escort and ticket into society’s upper echelon. Little J has more to worry about than dance steps when Eric teams up with Blair to teach her a lesson in humility.

Too bad Blair taught Jenny a little too well. Not to be humiliated, Jenny uses a life line and phones a friend. Nate saves the day, escorting the queen to her rightful place above all the other queens. Jenny’s social debut is epic as she is on the arm of not only a legend but a college guy. Eric loses Jenny to the dark side and loses Jonathan in the process. Game over? We think not.

There were tons of great Gossip Girl songs in this episode: Plastiscines “Bitch” and “I am Down”, One for the Team’s “Questions & Panthers”, Basement Jaxx’s “Saga”(ft. Santogold), Leighton Meester’s “Somebody to Love” (ft. Robin Thicke), Anya Marina’s “Whatever You Like”, Immoor’s “Bows & Arrows”, Stella Project’s “Underneath My Skin” and “Ready to Freak”, and Classic’s “Play to Win”.
