Love it or hate it, there is going to be more Dair in our future.
But how much, and will this Gossip Girl tandem get romantic?
The obvious, albeit unexpected spark between the brainy twosome from opposite worlds has become the talk of the fan community. So ... will they or won't they?
“I don’t know that we’re even conceiving them that way at this point,” executive producer Stephanie Savage tells EW of a possible Dair-ing romance on Gossip Girl.
“I think any time there's a strong intellectual connection and people have shared interest, where they enjoy bantering with each other, there's always potential for a romantic spark."
"That is inherent. So we’ll be exploring that in the next set of episodes.”
The next step? Dan joining Blair at W magazine for an internship.
“We’ve always talked about it, they’ve had a lot in common. We feel like any time they’re together, even when they hate each other, it’s delicious,” says Safran.
As for Chair fans holding out hope for that pairing, there's this:
"“Each one realizes that the only person who can actually do the thing they need is the other, and they end up working together in a really fun way,” Savage says of the February 7 episode. “Chuck and Blair are never far apart from each other.”
NOTE: Check out photos from that episode, "Panic Roommate."
Other tidbits as we gear up for the second half of the season:
- Eric’s getting a “fun and unusual” new arc.
- After a few rough episodes, Lily is on a new path.
- The show’s first Valentine’s Day episode will feature one of Gossip Girl‘s most lavish and lovely parties yet, thrown by Chuck at a mansion outside of town.
- Russell and Raina Thorpe will be around the rest of the season.
What do you think of these teasers? Should Dair hook up?
