"But most endings come when you least expect them, and what they portend is darker than you've ever imagined." FINALLY. Does this finally mean that Blair's going to go crazy, or are we just not doing that story? I hope the former, especially in these insanely long plaid sleeves she's wearing, they're like that clown at the end of Poltergeist and thus would facilitate a goodly amount of crazy just on their own. She sits down, looking up at Queller with absolute trust, waiting to be adored, and Queller drops the hammer: "I called you here this morning because Miss Carr told me what you did. You leave me no choice but to give you detention. Yale has been notified. Your acceptance has been placed on hold. If you complete detention to my satisfaction, Yale will still be possible. But if you do not..."
"Put that puppy down, Dorota," hisses Blair when she comes out of Queller's office. Not sure which way she means it. Dorota asks what happened, but B assures her that it's "what's going to happen" that should be generating the angst. "Not all beginnings are cause for celebration," GG muses. "A lot of bad things begin... Fights, flu season... And the worst thing of all..." Dorota drags Handsome down the hall on his leash, and realizes what we're looking at: War. "Yes. But this one will be different. I need to wait for my moment, and then I'm going black ops. Off the radar, no accountability. This war, I'm gonna win."
I feel as though I have waited thirty years precisely for this reason alone: to hear Blair Waldorf say those words, and feel the full-body shiver that accompanies it. Maybe there's something to opera after all? XOXO.
