I'm not pleased at all. Even though I didn't expect Blair to suddenly fall for Dan, I really thought that her conclusion about the kiss was lame. GG fandom already expect her to be madly in love with Chuck, why emphasize it? ANd chuck did something stupid, that broke her heart, so she left saying that she loved him but he's too imature. Cause that's so new. I'm BORED. Seriously, I expected the kiss to mean something deeper like, I can be happy in a different way that doesn't involve Chuck. That wouldn't kill Chair. But that would've been something new and MATURE. Instead they're just giving us more of the same. I know it was probably an episode to make us all go back to chair but, as I watched Dan talking to Chuck saying he should let her be happy (which he obviously ignored)all I could think of was I'm not coming back to Chair ever again (unless the writters write something so magical that makes me forget how Dair's amazing and how Chair keeps being about breaking hearts). [Lily's plo
IS CHARLIE THE NEW JENNY?? LIKE SERIOUSLY!!!??
I saw last night episode and after all, my heart feels compassion and love for Chuck. What he did with Dan inviting him to the party for me was no big deal, I understand that maybe Chuck over react, but we all make mistakes when we are afraid. Chuck did what he did because the fear of losing Blair, when he discovered that the kiss that have had changed her life, was a kiss with Dan... Chuck thought Blair chose Dan :(
I'm a fan of Chuck and Blair because I have seen their love story through 3 ½ years of the series and honestly I don't understand how those who bet Dan can expect love with Blair in like 4 episodes? Just a few episodes ago, Dan sabotaged Blair's birthday party and he said that Chuck and Blair were the worst that could ever happen to her sister Jenny.
Do you forgot all the problems Dan had with Serena during the time they were dating because Dan's rejection to social protocols in which Serena lives because she ispart of the Upper Est Side class?
These complexes m
Also, for people who think Charlie is up to no good, it may be true, but not a 100%. The actress has got a contract that gives her the option of becoming a series regular next season. So I highly doubt she'll do something really horrible to any of the characters.
I liked this episode.
It was really well done from my perspective.
The only thing that annoyed me was the Dan & Blair thing.
I was really hoping to see something really fascinating happen between them.
I was not surprised that Vanessa would overhear something and report back to Serena.
I am glad Vanessa is back, I've missed her character.
I must say that I like Charlie's character. It's good that she has some mystery behind her. I think the whole thing about her leaving college was because she may have been raped and may have tried to kill herself. I know it's a big jump to assume, but the way Carol was acting about her walking the streets of New York when she doesn't know them, that something had happened to her well she was at college, how Lily must keep an eye on her and the way she gave Charlie and Dan a look when they introduced themselves to one another. Anyone have the same idea?
Also, I loved the at the end it was meant to be a family portrait and Jenny was not in it
I wasn't impressed with this episode. It had such potential at times but but in the end it was a let down. While I am both a Dair and a Chair fan, happy to know that Chair will be end game, I really want to see more Dair. I too was disappointed that Blair didn't pick either. I'd prefer her to pick Dan for now as Chuck needs to prove his love to her a bit more. I don't buy his feelings anymore. I am NOT looking forward to Louis coming back into the picture. Now both Chuck and Dan will get blown off for this guy. Not excited about it at all.
I really wasn't interested in the whole Lily story. That seemed to be the main plot and it should've been secondary. Yawn.
Someone should say to Blair that she doesn't need a famous rich man. She wants to be a powerful woman on her own first so Dan is the perfect man for her right now. She can be a powerful woman on her own without a big to do man at her side. She can stand on her own so she should be able to date someone like Dan. He
Not horrible. Not good.
The handling of "Dair" was predictable. I enjoy seeing these two characters to together; I think have nice platonic chemistry. I never saw the passion between them that some friend apparently did. To me, it always seemed as if the writers were headed for Friendsville. So, thumbs up for playing the storyline through in a realistic way and allowing at least one man and woman on this show to enjoy each other's company without ending up in bed. Thumbs down for "duh"-ness of it all (Did anyone really believe that Blair was confining herself to her room for any reason other than Chuck? I called it from the first scene.)
As for Blair's reaction to Chuck's stunt ... Convoluted is the only word that comes to mind. The writers needed an excuse to keep Chuck and Blair apart while Blair explores her fairy tale and Chuck experiences some sort of redemptive suffering. Fine. They should have made Chuck do something worse. Tricking Dan into putting on a suit and taki
I didn't like this episode so much.. Altough I'm a Chair fan, I didn't like that Blair didn't choose Dan or Chuck... She just dumped them both... But, as I saw on the preview, the next episode seems to be MUCH BETTER.. Well, I really hope so.
The writers just gave the viewers the finger. Stupid trickery and no delivery. They did a masterful job brewing up a believable romance between Dan and Blair. The chemistry was amazing and with one horrible episode they stomped on it and concentrated way too much on the whole Lily affair. That could have held over with a few small scenes. Dan was completely emasculated and Chuck was as evil and petty as usual. Like another person commented here - what is interesting about Nate and Raina? And speaking of Nate, he gets the finger too from the writers; he's a sideline character every week. And choke on your frizzy hair Vanessa. This character never deserved the time she got on the show.
I have to say i liked the episode in spite of the lack of Dair.
I actually think it was very accurate the way everything played out.
Its pretty clear Dan and Blair felt something when they kissed, but they spent 4 years being sworn enemies, thinking the other was the exact opposite of themselves.
To realise that they are not that different and kinda like each other must come as a total shock to them, so give them some time to sort our their feelings before you demand Dan should "fight" for Blair. The guy is obviously very confused which is completely normal.
And for Blair: I remember a time when she was just as dismissive to Chuck after he was kinda, sorta, maybe having feelings for her in the beginning...
I think Blair was having the same response to the kiss almost every viewer had. It didn't have the "fireworks" Chair USED to have. Instead it was a little akward and confusing. Which is good, because everything else would have felt forced imo.
And seeing as Chuck (as passion
Chuck acting stupidly did not surprise me at all...
I love Dair, Blair needs someone that loves her like Dan!
Nate is way too pretty to have only 3 lines an episode! I WANT MORE NATE! Chuck... Dan... Blair... Prince Louis.... They're all screwed. I'm sick of the never ending fight for Blair Waldorf's love. She needs to just pick Chuck and get it over with because we all know Chair is endgame.
@towanda I LOVE THE WAY YOU THINK :D That smile Charlie brought down while conversing with Serena and her strange behavior was definitely the crazy eyes/smile from How I Met Your Mother
I think Charlie is a crazy girl. And will obsess with Dan. At the season finale she would do something to Dan and serana comes to save him. Final= Derana OR Maybe she can do something to bLair remember Ausiello said about physical harm so Dan comes to save her and the final Dair :P
Prince LOuis FOR BLAIR WALDORF!
no more chuck! boring with chair!
How unnecessary is Raina? I'd rather see Nate involved with some of his old flames. At least he wouldn't seem so misplaced then.
I was disappointed that Dair was retconned away, but I'm pretty sure they'll get there gradually.
I thought it was awful they said "whole family", and got two characters we've never even seen before (well, we saw the other Rhode sister as she was younger, but still) and not even a mention of Jenny.
Charlie is promising, but seems like an npc. Too soon to tell.
Rainate was cute and heartfelt, but I was just rushing to find out whether Blair would go with Dan or not.
In the end, I think it's good Blair didn't go with either one at this point.
The prince might be funner this time around. He was better-looking than I remembered. The bit about him holding the shoe was a bit corny, but I'll let it slide.
I thought it was kinda sad Chuck did the photo shoot alone, and even the photos were depressing.
I thought Serena was acting all high horse again by butting into Lily's sister's way of raising her daughter, but nobody called her on it...again.
Eric is awesome.
so excited about charlie and louis :D
i bet charlie will try to become serena or maybe blair, since her face already looks like her. but probably serena. and she'll try to hook up with dan. hehehe, can't wait :D
writers : please Kill Vanessa i hate her .. i hate her
HA I knew blair thought that kiss made her realize she wants to be with chuck!
i lovee them, bring the chair back! dan is boring!
chuck in the photo by himself was so sad :(
Why is Blair acting bitchy?
Chuck was just jealous and she called him a child, whereas she is the one acting childish with this ridiculous obsession to find a fairytale prince!
Charlie gives me the creeps. Someone's about to get Single White Female'd. Sucks to be you, Serena.
I agree, this episode was disappointing compared to what I was hoping for from that trailer. I still have high hopes, however.
Maybe Chuck will be able to do something to make us former CHAIR fans come back over from the DAIR side, but I'm not holding my breath. So glad Blair did not take him back! And when will she call him out on his supposedly sacred love with Raina? I wouldn't feel too secure about someone's love for me if they'd been building romantic rooms for and swooning over someone else just weeks earlier.
Dan needs to grow a pair, seriously, and tell Blair how he feels. Otherwise, the Prince is going to start looking awfully good next to Mr. LonelyHearts and Mr. WishyWashy. Boys, either @!#$ or get off the pot.
And what is up with everyone welcoming William back into the fold when he PRETENDED THAT LILY HAD CANCER?? How did CeCe not beat him to death with
Chuck and Blair just don't have the sparks they used to. I loved them together the 1st and 2nd seasons but when they were actually together in season 3 it seemed like the love and the fireworks went away. And season 4 is even worse. If they were in love, they would be dating. I'm starting to doubt they even have the love in them anymore. I always wanted them to be endgame but Blair and Dan seem much more genuine and they have a healthy bond. No one actually wants the unhealthy dynamic Blair and Chuck have on gossip girl in real life, its like a rotten fairytale. No matter how sexy it is, they are too into each other to be in love, and when they were in love it seemed to be all about sex. I wanted Blair's facade of perfection to come down when she was with the one she loved, and it did with Dan in their short story line more than it has with Chuck in a while.
I want to know what is wrong with Charlie. I'm surprised it wasn't mentioned in the synopsis the mysterious things Carol said to Lilly about how "Charlie left college because..." and then when Carol saw Charlie and Dan talking she seemed worried. Is Charlie a psycho who gets possessive and threatens to kill herself over boys or something? I just feel like as sweet as she is and although I like her, this is gossip girl, not the brady bunch, and Charlie DEF has some skeletons in her closet... Hopefully entertaining ones. And I hope the Love quadrangle story line gets FAR more interesting than tonights. I think its safe to say Chuck's stupid plot fit his character well, but Dan's silence did not fit his character. Also there has been too much Dair chemistry that fans have become too fond of for things to close that way. So hopefully theres more of a story with them, which, from what the promo suggests, there will be.
