Who better to recap each week’s new episode of Gossip Girl than author Cecily von Ziegesar? Find out all her favorite moments in “Salon of the Dead” (Season 5, Episode 20).

Hey People,

As Blair said last night, “It’s so good to be back in the saddle again.”

I know B was talking about rebounding into the Upper East Side social scene as a beautiful, smart, young newly divorced ex-princess, but as the episode progressed, I couldn’t help but enjoy the renewed fiery tension between her and Chuck, despite Dan’s constant devoted puppy presence. Blair and Dan are a great match of minds, but one has to wonder about the heavy duty pajamas they wear to bed and never seem to take off….

Favorite outfit: That beautiful navy blue dress Lola borrowed from Serena to wear to her non-existent Lars van Trier audition. We only got to see it for a split second but I love, love, loved it.

Favorite line: That thing Lily said about loving the Upper East Side because it has “People who are there just to open doors for you.”

Favorite villain: Serena! I love it when she’s bad. And she’s so good at being bad. Of course she’s so shamelessly enjoying being Gossip Girl. Vengeance is sweet.

Favorite mom: Diana. Once Chuck has gotten over the initial shock, even he will be proud to have such an über-hot mom, even if she does occasionally “bang” his best friend.

Favorite boy: Nate, as always, for being so ambitious, handsome, and loyal. For flirting with every girl he encounters, even his best friend’s mom. And for looking so very nice in a suit.

Looking forward to seeing what B and D are going to do about their pajama problem…!

You know you love it.

    “I also believe that Apple will need to open up more services to the developers, such as Siri, to generate additional innovation.”

    “Apple needs to retain its focus on delivering compelling products and services to the consumer. This means fixing the issues that the current services have while improving them,” Baker added. “Additionally, Apple needs to demonstrate that it still has the ability to innovate and invent products that consumers don’t know that they need or want yet.”
