'Gossip Girl' Recap: Bad Romance

Wow, that was something of an achievement -- not only one of the best episodes of the series, and by far the most successful finale -- but I think what truly made it great was the sound across America of fangirls' heads exploding again, and again, and again. So awesome!

Not a sacred cow, from fake rape outrage to Jenny's v-card, goes unmolested. It's magnificent, high romance across the entire spectrum -- from Chekov to Austen to Thackeray -- while still remaining perfectly clever and balanced, with the fresh perspective and dynamic reassessment the show has desperately needed.
