I'm so pissed about Dair. Why writers had to go there and do that to Blair's character? I'm so sad about it. I hope that all Blair will remember of her kiss with Dan is his bad breath and poor chemistry... but apparently writers are not that nice to do such a plot at the moment...

In one of my other posts, I liken Dan and Serena and Chuck and Blair as the Ross and Rachel of GG; ultimately they are endgame but in no way shape or form are they ready for each other romantically. The previous three seasons have shown us this.

Additionally, the writers have experimented with DS and CB so many times that it's stagnated the show. The idealist in me wants to believe that DB will end up like Joey and Pacey, but the realist in me attaches itself to the endgame of DS and CB. I just think that DB reinvigorates the show as this combination has been four years in the making. It's a nice detour and sure as hell entertaining one at that. The buildup was fantastic and so far, each payoff has been exceptional.

In terms of being ready, I think Dan and Blair are ready for each other right now, moreso than their respective former loves.

I didn't know that EW keeps his chest hair. I thought during the Bourne Identity story arc in France he had a scene with a shaved chest. But, eh, I could've been mistaken.

Eh. I think that's a bit of stretch. "Is my ex here?" is awkward to ask and a bit unbecoming of Dan. He, above all people, wouldn't reduce Serena to something as little and as simple as an "ex". And he said so himself, it was Blair that was in his mind all night, not Serena.

It's far more natural to ask if Serena, by name, was home opposed to "are we alone?". And I think the point was for Serena to specifically not be home. Dan's honorable sensibilities would have prevented him from pursuing B so openly in front of S, especially with an opening gambit.

And it'd just be a tad bit insulting, "Hey. I know your mom just turned herself in and your bf up and left, but hey since you are down anyway, here's a metaphoric kick to your ovaries: I'm going to go make out with your best friend now. "

@Amanda: of course Dan didn't came to see Serena, we all know that. What I meant was that I don't find romantic or very promising for a future relationship that when a guy goes to see a girl he thinks he might like the first thing he says is his ex name, who also happens to be the best friend of the girl. If he needed to check that they were alone he could have simply asked without throwing his ex name in there, that means something, she's in his head.

@Naazneen You said it perfectly! Dair!!! The thing about Vanessa.. i liked her when the character was introduced. They made her into this horrible person somewhere along the way. She was like Dan.. principled but "from the other side of the tracks" but a likeable character. Now she's just a bitch who irritates the life out of me. I used to like Vanessa around the time she was with Nate.

Naazneen I totally agree with you. Joey and Pacey became epic... who knows maybe Dair will. I still like Chair, but I must say I am totally intrigued to see where Dair will go. I want them together now. The Blair and Dan story line makes me like Dan a lot. I'm not bored with his character anymore. Not to mention that how different Blair and Dan are make their interactions so funny/cute and just overall enjoyable to watch. And yes please can Ben really be gone. I don't like that Vanessa is creeping back in. I stand by what I've said before. Bring back Georgina or Jenny not Vanessa. There is nothing to like about Vanessa. At least Georgina and Jenny have some personality and are interesting! As for Serena and Nate they both need a better storyline. Although I must say Raina and Nate are not such a bad thing. This wait is to long!! I want to know about Dair now..

DAIR WAS FLAWLESS THIS EPISODE WAS AMAZING

The thing about Dan and Blair is that if anyone had told us last year this is where those characters would be, we would all be screaming BLASPHEMY from the rooftops. But TPTB have handled this potential romance so well its almost blasphemous to think that they WONT go there - as in a relationship - with these two. They are honestly like chalk and cheese. Even more so than Dan was with Serena. Blair is a snob, she is witty, sarcastic and oh so vulnerable underneath it all. I think it would be criminal if the writers dont give us some Dair relationship drama. They are delicious together and i think Dan and Blair navigating a relationship with each other will be equally delicious! Its way too early to predict a DAIR win over CHAIR. But who knows where things will go? Who would have predicated that Joey ends up with Pacey?

@pty... I think he asked about Serena so that he could make sure she wasn't there when he kissed Blair. Not because he wanted to see her
