10 Terrible Episodes Of Good TV Shows
8. Last Tango, Then Paris – Gossip Girl
Gossip Girl had a few questionable storylines as well as a few awkward episodes, but season three’s “Last Tango, Then Paris” stands as its worst. At this point in the series it had become painfully obvious that Taylor Momsen did not want to be there and watching Jenny Humphrey go from sweet little sister to Goth chic was starting to get on the nerves of many fans and it all led to this episode. Jenny and Chuck sleeping together was unnecessary and somewhat disturbing after their first interaction was when he tried to force himself on her at the masquerade ball. Needless to say, by the end of the episode, everyone was fine to see Jenny leave, especially the fans. Despite being the worst episode, the series was able to recover and did better without Jenny dragging the other characters down.
7. I Can’t See You, But I Know You’re There – One Tree Hill
During its nine seasons, One Tree Hill held fans through captive through some truly intense and wild storylines and some very creative episodes, but sometimes those episodes became just a little too ridiculous including season eight’s “I Can’t See You, But I Know You’re There.” The series had previously ventured into the supernatural in season four’s “Song to Live and Die By” it was the season eight episode that took it too far. In the episode, after being shot by Clay’s crazy stalker, both Clay and Quinn’s detached spirits wander the hospital and interact while their bodies lay in the hospital. The tone of the episode was off in comparison to the rest of the show and instead came off like a soap-opera, and really showed how the series was losing its grip as it tried to maintain interesting storylines.
