“Rhodes To Perdition” S5 / E9
- C+ Community Grade
At The A.V. Club, we watch a lot of TV—but not every show is fit for the full, episode-by-episode TV Club treatment. But since we know you’d like the chance to chat about shows we don’t cover, we offer these open threads as a place to discuss shows that aren’t in the regular TV Club rotation or are otherwise off our radar. Use this space for all your usual commenting shenanigans, and we’ll drop in if we have something to say about the shows in question.
Taking this season’s literary-minded episode-naming convention to newly literal heights, tonight’s episode of Gossip Girl finds Lily escaping house arrest with Serena in tow in order to get tommy gun-totin’ revenge on the bastards who really collared Mrs. Rhodes-Van Der Woodsen-Bass-Humphrey for her involvement in Ben Donovan’s wrongful imprisonment. Hahahah, j/k, it actually refers to good ol’ Grandma CeCe, whose years on the Studio 54 scene (?) inspire a party held in her honor. Meanwhile, Blair and Chuck go through ex-couples therapy, which COME ON, GOSSIP GIRL, JUST PUT THOSE TWO BACK TOGETHER ALREADY.
