They aren't just going to reunite Chair w/out some major drama, people! This is all part of Chuck breaking down before he can rebuild himself to be the man he has to be to win Blair back. It will happen. As much as my heart breaks to see them at odds like this, Chuck DOES deserve to suffer a bit after everything he has done to Blair. But in the end, CHAIR FTW!!!!
I'm posting here because this is the last article of the night:
I read the interview that Lissy posted (it's also in the spoilers forum here) and the main monkey (that's right Schwartz, I'm calling you a monkey, I don't like bashing but sometimes in life you have to confront the issue heads on and take action like Nate should have done last episode by kicking Chuck's ass, instead of being a backstabing weasel) is saying that "it was not abuse" "she was frightened for him, not for herself" and etc. I can't begin to tell you how mad I am about this episode. If they didn't want to portray abuse they did a poor job at it. It wasn't necessary to go this far to establish paralelism with other stories like Disney's "Beauty and the Best" (in which the Beast smashes things in front of Belle and she runs away, but come on, he doesn't cut her, or grabs her), "The Philadelphia Story" or whatever. Right now I don't even think the main issue is whether we like or dislike Chuck, is that I think C
This show is just an example of everything that shoudln't be done. It has always relied on Chuck and Blair entirely and instead of trying to make other characters interesting, they keep giving them bad storylines. They now have added Chuck to the list of characters we are supposed to not care. And Dan is suddenly a dandy?
The Vampire Diaries, on the other hand, is written very well. Take Caroline for instance, or Tyler... they were secondary characters but now the rock... in GG it has been exactly the opposite.. Serena, Nate... they have dissapeared
I love "Gossip Girl" for one reason only, Chuck and Blair.
Over the seasons, I have come to admire Blair and her strong personality.
Blair and Chuck made this show and despite everything I hope they get back together.
Blair and Dan cannot happen; they cannot even be friends because it ruins her social standing. However they remind me of Lily and Rufus, maybe they'll have a future way down the road.
As for Blair and Louis, they happened way too fast and all of suddenly. It's more of a fairy tale, and she can't leave New York.
That's why I'm still and always rooting for Chuck and Blair, even though things get crazy there is an undeniable attraction or connection between them. It's true love.
Gaaah, S character is being boring from time to time. She is too good to be naive in all of these things cause she used to b a wild girl. And when she's being bitchy, she's not bitchy enough. I love it when she's being all mean, dont get me wrong, but her way of being bitchy, is sooo hmm... i dont know, doesnt do her wild=past-life justice. I like her being all goody goody girl too, but please jst for once if the director wants her to be bitchy make her as wild as she could... and bitchy...
S is seriously drifting away from the story... GG is getting boring... Lack of Jenny humprey too i guess?? gaaah... when will she be back... and Georgina too...
and if S character is not getting any better jst get rid of her from the show... and get B a new bff... lol after all, the storyline has been changed from the book since the begining already... so why not...
1. charlies comment about Bing. LOL
2. def. serena we expect this of chuck but serena really? what is nate gunna be the backstabber next? although since nate and serena both lost their BFFs maybe they'll become friends again then get back together!
3. i think she is pshyco but not georgina crazy. i think charlie is clinically pshyco. and if she is crazy blair will probably kill her or something.
4.no way she totally love chuck even though shes a little freaked out by him at the moment.
5. 9 becuase i like that shes leaving but i think that because of what charlie said she might just stick around. thanks a lot charlie
6. i think jack should get serena and nate together. but i know he wont :( i think he's gunna try and destroy chuck. Again.
Interesting that the producers and writers didn't think that the scene was abuse... certainly wasn't directed or edited like that... running away..
As for other's rants:
1. Rationalization #1: The "Chris Brown reference," where people want to get back with abusive spouses. That is a horrible analogy. The best thing that can be said is that people have their demons and need privacy & respect from society to rehabilitate their behavior.
2. Rationalization #2: "Chuck stopped!! He stopped!"... led to Blair saying "No, Stop it Chuck, I said it's over,"
Doesn't sound like consent does it? NO=Yes?
Anyways, I suppose it's irrelevant what fan think of this, because the likelihood of Dair or Blouis endgame is becoming less and less unlikely. Spoiler photos show Chuck and Blair reconciling in the final and Dan on a date with Charlie in the reception.
I.e. The probable outcome of "shattered bass" is Chuck being declared insane by Nate and Uncle Jack, but Blair saves him from
1. Dorota quote about Blair moving too fast.
3. No but I am pretty sure that Blair will degrade her just like she did Georgiana.
You know GG writers, it's not too late to say this episode was all a Blair Waldorf nightmare which made no sense whatsoever anyway and just shoot a last minute episode in someone's garage. I'll look past the poor quality. Chuck never acted that corny, Blair never got engaged to Louis, the princess of Monaco never rounded up all these socialites and sent them to America for a royal princess pagent, Serena wasn't sitting next to Eric and then in the next scene Dan hadn't taken Serena's place, Blair never wore her hair like that and loveable Nate never became a butthole. There.
I personally loved the Dair part of this season, and I think that Blois is adorable, but I also think that Chair is meant to happen and we all know eventually it will. Gossip girl has a way of wrapping up big events very quickly. Seeing that B went over to Chuck's tells me she still cares a lot about him...and it's obvious he cares a lot about her. I don't know exactly what it is that will bring Chair back together, but I have a feeling it has to do with B helping C with Jack. Also, S and N were being beyond horrible friends this week! Sure Chuck is a crazy drunken idiot, but he's taking a lot more heat than he deserves. He and Blair have been on awkward terms all season, his father's company almost being taken away from him, his family falling apart, and realizing his dad was even more horrid than he thought? I think the only one who can truly help him is B, and I really do hope Chair will prevail and everyone else (Nate, Serena, the Thorp family) will get the bad karma they deserve.
I read someone today saying that the writers are probably trying to make us hate Chair so that Blair can move foward. I agree because this was just what I felt when I finished watching this episode. I've been, just like Gossip Guy, a big supporter of Chair. As a matter of fact, it was the ONLY reason I kept watching it. Until this episode. The writers have successfully accomplished their mission to destroy Chuck's character. Y-day's episode was a huge disappointment. Now, the only thing that I care in the show is Blair/Happiness. As long as our queen is happy, the rest of them can explode. Seriously, who cares about Serena? Vanessa? NATE?
@Lissy: Very much agreed.
To me the problem was Blair's reaction. If they wanted to show that she IS NOT afraid of him, instead of running away like that, maybe she should've just given him a fierce angry look. But hey that's just my opinion =P
"Who are you more disappointed in, Serena or Chuck?" - What about Backstabbing Archibald ? Wasn't all the backstabbing enough to disappoint you? ¬¬ Since Vanessa is leaving, Nate will replace her as the useless backstabber. Ditto.
@Blouisville - Totally agree. As much as I love Chuck, he obviously tried to force himself on Blair, and of course she was scared. Josh Schwartz committed major writing fail there. Everyone always forgives his rapey nature, ugh.
Also the endless Bing placement is driving me crazy.
Crap, I forgot to mention Eric at number 4, he is also a great guy
2. CHUCK, what a Dumbass
3. Georgina but Charlie has potential to become worse.
4. Engaged yes, but not married (I still hope for Dan the only good guy on GG so far. I liked Nate, but when he didn't went between Chuck and Blair, or ran after Blair and checked if she was okay, he called Raina instead. Really???)
5. 3 (but I was a little sorry for her, she wants in her own way the best for Dan)
6. Destroy Chuck, what else
I too have hopped off the Chair train. After the hotel trade fiasco last season, I was disgusted but half heartedly wanted the writers to redeem Chuck. But a whole season of mistreatment of Blair and this latest debacle has made Chuck out of contention permanently, in my opinion. It still made me remisnisce of their good times. But the bad has officially outweighed the good, it sickens me to see Blair with Chuck. I am all for Blair/Louis, Blair/Dan, or Blair/Happiness. I hope the writers don't act like the violence in the last episode didnt happen. It IS A BIG ISSUE that they have to DEAL with PROPERLY. End Chuck and Blair. Make Chuck DEAL with his issues the RIGHT WAY.
with that being said let me answer the questions.
1) I loved Blair's smackdown speech to Serena that Louis overheard.
2) I am forever disappointed in Chuck as stated in the my rant above. But I did expect more from Serena. So to answer your question ~ I'd say it's a tie.
3) Georgina was a whole other level of craz
Any question about bromance break out from Chuck and NAte???
Nate it´s so stupid, Bro´s over hoes
Who are you most disappointed in, Serena or Chuck?
Chuck is a complete mess and needs some serious help and his actions were more pathetic than anything, Serena's actions were deplorable but, the one who takes the cake for my disappointment is Nate.
Nate leaves his best friend at a time where Chuck needs Nate more than ever for some girls he barely knows then helps Jack Bass next week. Nate, I've lost all respect for you, no matter how pretty you are.
I've always been for CHAIR and I still am. Chuck has hurt Blair a lot of times, but honestly, I don't think Blair is any better. While Chuck was spending his spare time with other girls (Raina, Eva...), Blair basically did the same thing with Dan and Louis. I don't think this engagement is anything serious. Blair and Louis are better off separately than together. You might not agree with me on this, but I still think Chuck has a chance to win her back. At least, I believe in that.
Dair was totally unnecessary for my taste, from the beginning till now. And Selena is just some stupid B**** making things more complicated. Maybe that's how the writers are trying to create more tension? And also with the reappearance of V? Failed!
I really don't understand Serena. She tried to destroy Blair's dreams because she kissed Dan....while Serena and Dan were NOT together? Did Serena forget the time she HOOKED UP with Nate while he was still with Blair? Of course not.
Obviously from my name I am already into Blouis. That's a good call, Round Table, about how we expected more from Serena. It was odd, her lack of a real reason to ruin Blair. Maybe later on she admits she can't stand it if someone else is the center of attention?
I have been rooting for Chair since season one, and was one of the few STILL rooting for them after the events of last season. But after the last couple of episodes, where I've seen Chuck repeatedly attempt to destroy Blair's happiness, I have happily hopped off the Chair train.
I honestly don't think there's any possible way Chuck could make it up to the Queen, now. And I want Blair to finally have a chance to be happy after she admitted to having been miserable for so long.
I used to hate the idea of Dair, but I am now firmly behind either it or Blois.
