Davis Calloway must face justice for his crimes.
Gossip Girl (2021) Season 1 Episode 9 discovered Julien on a mission to assist the survivors of her father’s crimes be heard, however by the tip, the general public had been left with the sensation she was making an attempt to silence them.
It was a harrowing hour of this reboot, however it make clear extra essential subjects than earlier than.
Julien needed some readability on the scenario, and the very last thing she needed to do was silence anybody, however this growth flawlessly reveals that these youngsters usually are not considering like adults.
They make errors, and even when all of this blows over, Julien will at all times be remembered for what was perceived to be occurring within the museum.
Julien and Zoya make an ideal workforce, and you would inform it pained Julien to have to inform Riley that remaining silent, for now, might be the very best plan of action.
If we take a look at the optics of the assembly and the Gossip Girl spin on it, it looks like she was making an attempt to guard her father.
Who will consider that she was making an attempt to guard the voices of those that haven’t been heard?
Julien: What are you doing?
Davis: I did not wish to disturb you. I used to be simply on the lookout for the previous telephone to present to the attorneys.
Julien: To give to them, or…
Davis: Or what?
Julien: Or delete what’s on it.
Julien’s time within the public eye has include extra negatives than positives, and one thing tells me this whole situation will ship her into hiding.
She wants time to course of the truth that her father isn’t the person she thought he was. She ought to have been extra involved when he rummaged by way of her bag.
There’s no means again from this for Davis, and if the present opted to deem him harmless after a lot proof stacked in opposition to him, it will really feel extra just like the present was exploiting sexual assault for a plot.
Sensitive storylines should be dealt with with care, and Gossip Girl has at all times been a present concerning the wealthy and highly effective.
Davis used his energy to get girls into mattress, and there should be repercussions of that.
The girls do not keep in mind a factor about that night time, and the truth that Davis supposedly thought that was okay on the time highlights what sort of individual he’s.
Davis will wrestle to seek out authorized illustration now that it appears to be like like Julien has tried to silence individuals, and possibly, simply possibly, Julien will release a reside video to get her level throughout.
The stunning half in all of that is how Lola has been M.I.A. The engagement has been walked again, however there was part of her that seemed not sure about Davis on Gossip Girl Season 1 Episode 7.
So you determined to show in your greatest buddy?
Hopefully, she’s realized that getting concerned with the Calloways isn’t in her greatest pursuits.
Julien bonding with Zoya all through these horrifying circumstances has been good for each of them. It’s only a disgrace it took all of this to make it occur.
For now, Julien is about to face a reckoning, and there is not any telling how that can play out for her.
Nick chatting with Riley was a pleasant second. He was tirelessly defending Davis initially, however it appears to be like prefer it took the survivor telling her story to open his eyes to what was actually occurring.
Kate isn’t going to have the ability to forgive herself for going reside. She was exhibiting regret for what the account had change into, and now that it has destroyed Julien’s life, there is not any getting back from it.
All of the lecturers must withstand their crimes as a result of individuals like Scott are utilizing the account to trigger destruction. Yes, the youngsters have been horrid to individuals, however at the very least Kate tried to make them higher individuals.
The elevated consciousness for the account has created a beast that can’t be taken down with out a struggle.
Nick: Trust the method.
Lawyer: No statements. No posts. Not on-line. Not in individual.
The total metropolis of New York is now conscious of Gossip Girl, so these teenagers can not go anyplace with out being beneath surveillance.
Kate might be getting a redemption arc, and fairly frankly, she does not deserve it. She began this entire factor and was the ringleader initially.
At least Jordan is making an attempt to maintain issues going properly behind the scenes.
Audrey and Aki’s realization that they solely have eyes for one another was cute, however one thing tells me they are not being utterly trustworthy with each other.
Aki was vocal to Rex about how a lot he loved the kiss. It may wager be the case that Aki nonetheless needed Audrey current, however I really feel like they’re each mendacity to one another about what they need.
Aki getting jealous and conceding that he may give Audrey what Jamison may give her, felt like he was gaslighting her into believing it.
Are we beginning to see a extra villainous aspect to Aki? He needed to exit and sleep with males and for Audrey to attend at residence for him.
Audrey needed her boyfriend to really feel fulfilled, so it wasn’t truthful that Aki would wish to step out on her and never anticipate the identical in return.
The ache on Max’s face was evident when he launched into this mission of self-discovery. He’s realized he loves each Aki and Audrey, however they’ve had their fill of him and are shifting on with one another.
Max will most likely spiral uncontrolled yet again, and I hope this does not ship him again to Rafa as a result of the additional he’s away from that dude, the higher.
Gossip Girl has lastly discovered its footing and resides as much as its predecessor.
