Gossip Girl > Gossip Girl Review: Blair's Royal Nightmare > Comments Page 2
This episode could use some Chuck and Blair interaction.. why waste so much time on royals? Chuck and Blair interaction is needed asap. Dan and Serena were awesome. İt made me realise why I love them so much. They are good fro eachother.
Diana is blatently Chuck's mother. Why else would the combination of the safe be her date of birth in that episode? Now all that has to happen is Nate happens upon Diana's DoB and recognises it....
One of my arguments for DAIR is that it fits the archetype of the starcrossed and poor boy/rich girl dynamic: they are mutually beneficial to each other. I think CHAIR, unfortunately, will be stuck in the unhealthy, disturbing and sick Lady Gaga-esque archetypes. Nothing good has come from their relationships. It is a high school romance pretending at greatness (soulmates/family) and stuck in lust/dark social mores. The constuct is not good for the show and it's not a good message to send.
That said, the writers do batshit crazy things sometimes (read: Juliet, Jenny, Vanessa) so who knows. They might totally screw up the last season(s). One of best arguments for DAIR is that Blair is acting the same way she was when she was starting to fall for Chuck, that is, she is stuck in DENIAL. She has NOT read the entire book, which I believe will be the catalyst for the kiss that ends all kisses. She is denying everything exactly the way she denied her feelings in season one and two. When
Louis was reading Gossip Girl on Blairs computer when she came into the room. The blast was about Chuck talking to the shrink, right? Wasn´t that why L called her up. Why he appared to have her on speed-dial I don´t know though.
About the Kiss to End All the Kisses, Ausiello said that Blair is at the receiving end of it... :D
Can we please do something with Nate? I am sick of his character getting awful story lines. He seems like he is just spinning his wheels. At this point Nate could get a spin-off show, even the Juliette story line was bogus. Stop filling screen time with Louis and Ivy and give Nate something to work with.
This episode overall left me very confused and anxious to see what is to come next.
First off, even I found it annoying for Charlie’s sake that she had to try and get rid of Rufrus and Lily. Those two are seriously only good for getting in the way of other character’s storyline. That is so sad.
For some reason I like that Nate and Charlie are starting off as friends and it will clearly take more than 2 episodes before they hook up. That has always been the problem with Nate, so its nice to see part of him changing is becoming less of a whore. That doesn’t mean Charlie has won me over or that I want her to be here til the end.
So I never understood why Serena lied about the copy-write for the book if in the end, her boss is mad at her now. Serena really has been downgraded to second best compared to Blair now. Shouldn’t be a surprise, that’s bound to happen if we compare their acting skills to each other. I did thought her acting when she said Dan is the love of her life
...another possible way for Chuck to "redeem" himself, as mentioned in the article could be - Blair has a miscarriage (not that I want that at all no way but just thinking mediocre like the GG writers usually do) and somehow Louis triggered it and Chuck is the one who supports her...but I think the - make Louis a bad, bad guy doing bad, bad things (especially to Chuck), and Blair getting to know this and getting back to Chuck all forgiven - is the way GG will go...
noo no serena and dan i used to love them in season one but i think after like 45 break ups and get back togethers they should be done! SERENA AND NATE FOREVER!!!!
Been with GG from the start but this episode still had me gritting my teeth...grrr...I know we have to suspend reality and believe in the improbable on GG but seriously...can't they credit their audience with some sense!?!
It always cracks me up how just one call can make a world of difference - Serena calls up Harvey W's people and suddenly they call off the deal with Dan's agent! I mean couldn't they call back and check with Dan's agent if this news was really true, or why they changed their mind, or try and negotiate so they can get back the deal of this masterpiece of a book - things that agents in real life would try and do - but nope here they just go by that one call and make huge decisions.
In another site someone had mentioned that the episode preview shown in Canada showed Louis asking the therapist to get Chuck back to his past misdeeds, misbehavior...can see where this is going folks? Louis does that, Blair find outs, gets mad at Louis, sees Chuck in a brand new lig
Yay for Derena! Who cares if they are siblings, it's a TV show. From the beginning I've wanted Chair and Derena. As for Nate he should actually end up with nobody. It would definately be more realistic that way. He can't settle down for any one girl so I don't think he ever will. If you compare the way he has "loved" girls to the way Chuck loves Blair it's totally different. Nate has never loved anyone but himself.
Not a big Fan of Derena was glad when they broke up, so if the writers bring them back together I just don't think I could watch it. I am a HUGE Dair fan and honestly i never thought would be but Dan and Blair would make a great couple, both from different worlds i think it would be amazing. My whole idea about Diana i think she may be Chucks mother, that she did not die in the fire, she is back for revenge on the upper east side and will do anything to get it, i think it would be a great story for Chuck to find out his mother is still alive...
@QueenNOBS: Thank you! Today was awful until now, because I managed to see something on the cell phone but I didn't know what was going on and it was driving me crazy, not that the promo is not driving me crazy now.
@Maribellis: I have heard about that. Also, I have another non USA precedent, the argentinian telenovela Muñeca Brava? Go check it out, and it was a success in countries like Israel, Rumania, in South East countries, etc.
@ Uncle Jackass: I think you are on the money, which is rather unfortunate for me because it doesn't help DS romantically. I think they will sorta work together in the movie, that as per the Canadian Promo is in peril, if it happens at all, and then Serena gets involved with Max and who knows how that's gonna go.
Btw, for all the people complaining about the step-sibling situation, did you ever watch Clueless?
For the people who are wondering if it was diana in the picture yes it definatly is. I'm from the uk and thats what elizabeth hurley looked like in the late 90's early 2000's in austin powers movie. I don't know if you guys have seen it but if you have you'll know its her.:) finally her storyline is becoming a little bit interesting!
DERENA? Does it not bother ANYONE that they are step brother and sister? Doesn't bother anyone at all? I took yesterday's episode as....Serena realizes Derena was just puppy love....and Blair might actually want to read the book now.
I miss Dan and Serena great, so I'd LOVE to see them back. DS/CB is how I want the show to end.
After rewatching the episode again, I not too sold on whether Derena is getting back together. It might have been implied that they decided to work together on the screen-play by the end of the episode.
From future spoilers from Ausiello we are pretty sure there is a Derena kiss in the next "I AM Number 9" episode. But I heard rumors and seen the late night spoiler pics ("Big Sleep No More") showing 'Max' and Serena interacting with each other. It's therefore possible that the Derena kiss in the previous kiss might be the signal to the end of the Derena relationship. This is how things go in the GG universe.
I don't understand why people are moaning about the idea of dan and serena getting back together again when the way I see it is the dan/serena and chuck/blair pairings were the reason why most people watched the show in series 1,2, and 3. Also they're NOT blood related and there has not been a mention of this brother of theirs since series 3. I also find them a LOT more interesting than serena and nate and even though I loved dan and blair for a while, I cant see that relationship turning out to be anything more than friends so yeah dan and serena and chuck and blair can happen all over again for me!
I don't think Dan and Serena will be boring. I think the long time apart was good for them and they will be fresh and new again, so long as they've grown past their mistakes. It'll be like Darena 2.0! As far as the incestey vibe, they were together before Rufus and Lily became a couple and they're not blood related. The only thing weird is that they share a sibling (who has conveniently vanished from the show) but hey, it happens I guess. The important thing is that they were together before they knew about their parents. And they're in love. I'd like to see any Chair fans stop shipping Chair if they found out they shared a sibling.
@Meg- Couldn't agree more! Where and how some people possibly conceived the idea that all of the storylines are pointing to Dair being endgame is absolutely ludicrous! Ship whoever you want, but you can't deny where the writers are heading with this season. Chuck having to get past himself in order to get to Blair, Blair's royal pains most likely leading to the end of her ridiculous so-called relationship with Louis, and Derena reuniting after that heartfelt exchange and eyegasm last night. This all makes sense because in the end, you start thinking about the beginning. If the writers are tying things up, they know that Chair needs some fixing and Derena needs redeeming in order to go full circle. I don't know if they see Dair as just a buffer, but it looks like they've coughed up as much as their limit would allow with the Dair scenes in the first few episodes. Now, moving on to bigger and better things!
Oups I hit sent before I finished.
Well my point is, Dair fans have a right to dream even when everything is pointed towards a Chair/Derena ending. May be the writers won't go that way, who is to tell?
I'll remain pessimistic about Dair so that I won't be disappointed but there is still a part of me that hopes about it.
And happiness doesn't have to mean being in a couple at the end of the show. I mean I would a thousand times see Serena as a happy self-made woman, cured of her crazy hook ups tendency and working with a career than have her with Dan again. Derena as endgame would be unimaginative. It doesn't have to have all the old flames back together to make it a ncessarily good ending
Although I admit Chair is endgame I think that if the show gets another season Dair could very well work out. If the show ends with season 5 then no, there won't be enough time to make it work.
One thing I disagree with is the fact that Dan's love for Blair is just ephemeral. I mean writing a book in which only Blair is portrayed nicely and telling Serena that they were too young to decide of who is the love of their life seems to point in the direction that Dan's feelings are not just a result of infatuation.
Look we say Dair forever because even though we might never actually get it we will always consider Dan and Blair as the OTP of the show. Their scenes have made us interested in something that was getting too repetitive and overdone. Dair might not work out and it might bring back the dreadful Derena but that doesn't mean
I missed seeing Darena.
The shipper I was during season 1 and season 2 is actually happy right now.
This show is about more than Dan and Blair. That's the biggest problem with the "Dair is Inevitable" argument. It ignores what is happening with every other character and distorts what is happening and has happened to Blair and Dan. I'm sorry but so-called Crazy Chair shippers aren't the ones that don't get it.
Chuck is not moving on romantically and he's getting growth in the areas he needs to in order to make his relationship with Blair work. All his growth is fueled by losing Blair and him believing he is not the father of Blair's baby. Plus they've kept him deeply tied to the baby story and now have Louis unfairly scheming against him. If they wanted to kill Chair and go with Dair they wouldn't do this. They only have one season left and Chuck has no alternative endgame. Since his story is all about loneliness and a desire for family there is no way he's going to be denied those things in the end. They don't see Chuck as the abusive villian that some of the Dair shippers
