1. There Might Be Blood
Season 2 Episode 9
Jenny goes rouge and everyone but her father is impressed.
Why do I love this episode so much? Jenny’s going after her dream and Blair, Serena and Chuck are off on a mission.
Blair actually had one of her few moments where she did the right thing. She could have bribed Emma’s mother to get her way into Yale, but instead she does what’s right for Emma.
Not only did Blair resist her urge of bribing someone to get her way, she also helped Emma not make the biggest mistake of her life.
When Blair lost her virginity she had just broken up with Nate, so it didn’t seem like she had lost it to someone she loved. But who would have guessed that Blair and Chuck would be on again, off again throughout the series. I love the scene where she talks about losing her virginity to someone she loves.
Poor Nate he has dated just about every girl on the show and hasn’t found his true love yet.
After Dan’s story is read by three professors at Yale and no one wants to write him a recommendation letter, he takes matters into his own hands. He finishes the story about Chuck and his mom.
Rufus then has a heart to heart about not using other people to get what you want. My favorite scene and quote of the episode is: “I wish I could get the two of you to understand, that success, people praising you, it goes away. And when that day comes, if you don’t like who you are, your done.”
Rufus is worried about having to reach both of them, but Dan tells him it’s “a little late for that” and Rufus goes into Jenny’s room to find all of her stuff gone.
I can’t say if what Jenny and Dan are doing is right or wrong, but they are following their dreams at all costs.
