The return of Queen Serena in Ep 2.04 The Ex-Files of Gossip Girl rocks my world. I'm just sad it has to come at the expense of her friendship with Blair. If that's the old Serena, I wonder how on earth she and Blair ever got to be best friends to begin with?
And true, she may be an uber-bitch of the highest order now (check out the look on her face when she walks into the courtyard and eyes Dan with disgust, rightfully justified in putting Dan into the high school realm he has been begging for all along, what with his holier-than-thou attitude), but, man, is she one heck of a badass.
I totally have a girl-crush on Serena (Blake Lively), even more than when she was sweet, compassionate season 1 Serena.
