One Tree Hill Episode Recap: ‘Choosing My Own Way’…. READ FULL RECAP
This week’s episode of One Tree Hill was mainly about making choices and getting seconds chances. Luke had his second chance at another career success, Nathan was given another shot to play ball, though not in the way he imagined, new girl Samantha was given the option to better her current situation, Peyton was able to confront her real father and Dan was back with one final attempt to prove somewhere inside him he has a good heart. So what happened when all of these life changing opportunities were presented? read more
After the madness of the last episode, One Tree Hill returned tonight with a welcoming, quiet episode that focused more on characters and relationships than caricatures and ridiculousness. I have to admit: although the ridiculousness is fun sometimes, it’s nice to be reminded once in a while that Tree Hill isn’t always so darn crazy.
‘Gossip Girl Episode Recap: New Haven Can Wait’
This week, the seniors went on their college visits. For all their talk in the past of Dartmouth, Brown and USC, they all wound up at the same place: Yale. Depending on what Upper East Side student you talk to, New Haven is a haven for overachieving bookworms, preppies, future presidents, horny womens studies majors, top English majors and the best secret society. Though the plan was to impress deans and secret societies, all unexpectedly got schooled in lessons on friendship…..READ FULL RECAP
When last we saw our beloved Gossip Girl, all of these beautiful people were spinning dangerously off their axes: Dan taking Ecstasy and/or Viagra and winding up in jail, Serena pushing over Blair for old socialites with high-fashion hairdon’ts, Jenny stealing fabric and ideas and everyone else’s thunder, and Chuck Bass hanging out with poor people.
In Episode 3 of Season 2, Bryce comes back, a tug-o-love ensues between Chuck and Bryce for Sarah’s attention, and yes, there is a break up. But you won’t believe who does it and why. So put your spy sunglasses on and jump on the Chuck wagon.
Read the detailed recap, after the jump. read more
Chuck brings on the heartbreak this week as our favorite geek-boy spy finds out that sometimes, love just ain’t enough. Sometimes, love can get you killed. Plus, there’s a stunningly fabulous Buy More Cage Match, Bryce shows his hand, and Captain Awesome brings the cheese — but still managed to be oh so very awesome.
From TV Guide:
A death to come on Gossip Girl? OMG — say it ain’t so!
“There’s a lot going on,” Jessica Szohr told TV Guide “There’s a love triangle between Vanessa, Nate and Jenny, there’s a funeral….” Catching herself before she said too much, she then added, “That’s all I can say. We can’t talk about it!”
Though Szohr was mum on who kicks the bucket, she did hint that as far as Vanessa’s love life goes, “There’s some flirtation with Chuck Bass coming up — but I think she still misses someone else.”
Who do you think will be the one to die this season? We can’t imagine any of the main kids getting offed so soon in the series, but then again, anything can happen on television.
Blair and Chuck will be circling around each other all season long and giving you at least one good squeal per episode. Meanwhile, keep your eyes on Little J! Matthew Settle (Rufus) told me that Little Jenny Humphrey will do something “jaw-dropping” that makes you question Rufus’ abilities as a parent. I hear it may have something to do with another kind of dropping…The kind Frenchie did in Grease…and more, including fireworks with the fine specimen at right! — Kristin @ E!Online
From the Ausiello Files
Gossip Girl‘s ratings aren’t the only thing growing this season.
Sources confirm to Michal Ausiello exclusively that the network has ordered two additional episodes of the show, bringing its season 2 total to 24.
The move comes as the gap between Gossip Girl‘s massive hype and relatively paltry ratings has finally started to narrow. The soap is up double digits over last season, and its sophomore surge has even helped lift its lead-out, One Tree Hill.
BTW, Gossip Girl is all new tonight. It’s the episode where Serena and Blair beat the crap out of each other and I, in turn, thank God for inventing TV.
UPDATE: The CW initially flirted with the idea of ordering 24 episodes of Gossip Girl back in May, the network ultimately decided to stick with the standard 22 episodes. Until now, that is. This new two episode order brings that number back up to 24.
