"While some parts of this saga were obviously hokey - Lucien yanking Louis back to France unless Blair was dating Dan" ...and the actor playing Lucien speaking a language that was obviously not French. And where on earth does that "Grimaldi" reign? Hope it is not France or watch out for your head young Louis! But since Madame Van der Woodsen-Bass-Humphrey is said to have dated Nicolas Sarkozy (! btw), France is still a Republic in the Gossip Girl world. So Louis might be from Monaco, except the last Grimaldi prince who was called Louis died in 1922. Blair IS a princess, she does not need a guy faking royalty to wear a crown.

Regarding Blair's fear of Social Suicide with Dan: why do you think she was picking out his pink tie? She could have simply demanded that he show up at the party. No, that tie-selection is a harbinger of things to come... Blair's brain is beginning, with some struggle, to take seriously the idea that Dan is her future. And he will need help with tie selection, to fill that role!

W, of course Blair loves French New Wave cinema and that's completely in character!
Her distaste for NYU mustn't be mistaken for distaste for the artsy things themselves; rather, it's distaste for the hapless, sloppy, uncomprehending fans of the artsy things!

Those who think Blair is poorly paired with Dan also seem to misunderstand this. Dan transcends his Brooklynness because he actually gets it! He's not just some poseur who wants to be a writer; Blair now sees that he's truly talented. He doesn't pretend interest in artsy stuff to be cool; he really knows and appreciates the same sorts of things that Blair does. And he loves her for it, too! Remember Blair's horror over what Dan's musical tastes might be like? Well, as it turns out, probably the same as her own!

Blair and Dan click on all levels and look beautiful together. A perfect couple! Their differences in background and values are more compatible than they had realized, and when not, their differences merely stimulate and challenge each other. Neither one will be a pushover for the other, and neither will mistreat the other. Look how Dan abandoned his "Paris Match" gig when he realized the conflict of interest involving Blair! He could have exploited her, but he wouldn't. Blair is afraid of committing "social suicide" with Dan, but she'll get over it. Give it a year...

And come on, producers/writers: if you'd give us 1 or 2 slightly steamier Dair scenes, the fans would be converted! It's not a fair fight when all the passionate moments were with Chuck! I want to see some clutching, or as Dan terms it, Blair getting "handsy"!

@ Crissy Can Do: I agree completely

Serena needs to get some substance before she can have an opinion on anyones relationship. "Suck" Serena+Chuck is actually perfect for eachother too.

Crissy Can Do:
I love your point about Serena and Chuck! They seriously need to get over themselves. When Blair and Serena were having that convo about Dan and Serena had something about Blair between interested in Dan b/c she had him first, I was like seriously? Its really interesting that Serena is so mad that Dan and Blair are friends and acts like its a major betrayal but seems to have forgotten that she SLEPT with Nate while he was DATING Blair. Yea...kind of NOT the same thing. And as for Chuck...I used to see Chair as endgame but now I really don't know. As much as I love Chair's chemistry, Chuck has to do something super big to show how much he cares about Blair. And proposing won't do the trick. It's just his way of claiming her. I actually like Dan and Blair. I think they're good for each other. I think thats why Serena is acting like such an idiot because she realizes it too. She realizes that Dan and Blair are both brainiacs who also have the hotts for each other.

Dan? really?

I would really like to see a Blair and Dan romance blossom because they are truly the most fitted for eachother. Blair has grown up a lot over the past few seasons and realizied that however important social status is it's not everything. And it's not like if she ended up with Dan she would be doomed to a life of dish pan hands and clipping coupons. Dan is brilliant and very goal oriented and will probably end up being a famous Novelist or an editor for a an elite news paper or magazine.
I just think it would be nice for Dan to be with someone he doesn't have to save all the time because Blair Waldorf saves herself.

And as for Serena and Chuck they both need to get over themselves. Serena seriously needs to drop the victim act because no one is buying anymore. I mean how dare she be mad at Blair and Dan for not informing her of their friendship like its all about her.
Chuck as a really bad Charlie Sheen complex he thinks no matter what he does ( pimp her out to his uncle, take off for weeks, fall "Inlove" with woman after women, and all his selfish stunts ) that Blair will just be waiting. After all that he has done he has learned nothing he still expects Blair to compromise herself no matter how bad she feels about it later.
P.s. I really Love Chucks character and I hope he doesn't change.

I also think that Charlie and Nate would be kind of cute together. Raina is a really boring character and needs to go. Love Vanessa as a little evil Betch.

I team Dan And Blair all the way so it was so disappointed that they did not show the kiss. And the prince thing how easy was it for him to walk in to the story line. I really hoping that something more happen before the end of the season.

Gosh! I really don't like Serena! I mean, come on, a few weeks (months?!) ago she kind of make Dan believe they will be together, then they agreed it was not their time (never I hope!) and then pushed her relationship with Ben right under Dan's face (even his appartment!!!) and she thinks she has the right to say something about Dan & Blair relationship?!! She's unbelievable!
