This is a parallel for 4x05 vs 1x15
I loved Savannah and Svetlana. they will always hold a special place in my heart. :)
Chuck vs. Blair in 4x04 vs Georgina vs Serena in 1x15
Chuck and Georgina are the villains in this one. fitting!
Blair has a secret she wants to keep all to herself. Chuck had sex with Jenny. The revelation would cause mutual destruction, she insinuated, but she seems to be the only one who thinks so. Chuck says “a man who has nothing to live for is capable of anything”. The revelation shouldn’t affect in him any way. He clearly doesn’t give a f*ck
Serena has a secret she wants to keep all to herself. She thinks she killed someone. the revelation of it will further damage her and may have serious repercussions. She’s been in the process of reforming herself, and with her association to Dan Humphrey, to completely shed her bad girl image. But like she said in 4x05 “There’s no starting over, no matter where i go, what i do, my past seems to follow me”. Georgina doesn’t care that Serena wants to keep it a secret. what she was looking for (a renewed friendship) was denied by Serena. So why would G be the nice one.
Both G and C are ruthless. they will go to any measure to get what they want. Georgina is pretty messed up but i think the reason why she wanted her friend back is because she loved what they had and she was missing it. Chuck tags his excuse under the name of Eva, consciously he might not even be aware of his feelings for Blair because his emotions are skewed and his beliefs are metamorphic. However to the naked eye, it is obvious he is still very much in love with her.
All the stops that G pulled to get back at Serena, including outing Eric, slipping the snub film with Pete Fairman did not destroy Serena. It got her to deal with some pretty serious internal conflicts and brought together the NJBC. However i don’t know the direction of the C vs B war. I just hope it doesn’t end in tragedy.
another note. Georgina acted like the victim in her whole dilemma with Serena. They were both bad and Serena is painting her to be the only one. I get the same impression from Chuck since Blair ‘took away the only thing he ever loved’ ‘destroyed his future’ and he has no more reasons to live because of that.
