There's the crossovers we were expecting to happen on FOX's "Gotham" - including one with The CW's "Arrow" that kind of, sort of happened - and then there's the epic one that happened on last night's (October 20) episode, "Viper," when finally, "Gossip Girl" and "The O.C." crossed over.
Okay, not so seriously. But "Gotham" stars Ben McKenzie, and despite the actor playing the city's most heroic detective Jim Gordon, and having had many, many roles since, in our hearts McKenzie will always be Ryan Atwood from "The O.C."
So imagine our surprise when last night's "Gotham" featured a one-scene visit from Margaret Colin as a lawyer helping the Gotham City Police Department solve a case involving a deadly drug. The reason this is significant? Colin played Eleanor Waldorf, Blair Waldorf's mother on "Gossip Girl."
So, Ryan Atwood finally met Eleanor Waldorf. They had this whole conversation about the drug Viper, and what it was doing to Gotham City, and who caused it... And the whole time, we were just thinking, "Why are you not talking about this?"
Look, we get that it would have made no logical sense in the context of the show, but how do you get Ryan and Eleanor sitting down together, and not have them at least hint at how Blair is now married to Seth Cohen IRL? Come on, it's not rocket science.
So with that in mind, we fixed the "Gotham" scene to make it more realistic.
Eleanor Waldorf: "Well, here we are in Gotham City to set up the latest sample shop for Waldorf Designs."
Ryan Atwood: "Nice to meet you, my name is--"
Eleanor: "Ryan Atwood. I know. I hear good things."
Ryan: "Nice to meet you too, have a seat. Oh, and... Welcome to the GC, bitch."
Eleanor: "Excuse me?"
Ryan: "Oh, I'm sorry... That's sort of my thing."
Eleanor: "Ha, ha, ha, no problem at all. Now tell me..."
Eleanor: "Have you heard about this?"
Ryan: "Hold on, is that Seth Cohen with Blair Waldorf?"
Jimmy The Cab Driver: "It is! They got married. You didn't hear?"
Ryan: "That's really good for them. So you think I have a shot with Serena van der Woodsen?"
Eleanor: "Are you kidding? She's pregnant with Van Wilder's baby."
Ryan: "...So you're telling me there's a chance?"
Eleanor: "You know what? If things could work for me and Vizzini, anyone has a chance."
Eleanor: "...So are you coming to stop this thing, or what?"
Ryan: "You're right! I have to go stop that wedding!"
