Gossip Girl > Gossip Girl Review: Blair's Royal Nightmare > Comments Page 7
The biggest problem with how they're writing these episodes, IMO, is that they're focusing too much on misdirection and surprising us... so they build up to exciting cliffhangery stuff at the end of the episode (some of which makes sense, some of which... not so much). But as a result, so much of the middle just feels like boring filler, especially when it's guest stars interacting with guest stars.
The lack of CB interaction isn't helping, of course, but they're obviously taking steps that will bring them back to each other, so I can't complain too much about that.
Like last episode, Chuck had limited screentime, but he still managed to steal the show. He was funny, sexy, and sad/heartbreaking, and I applaud the writers for taking steps to make him grow and mature without losing his fabulous snarkiness. His dialogue with Dan and later with Nate was just hilarious.
Blair- I just don't know what to say about her at this point. Her scene with Eleanor was moving, and I'm glad sh
No no no. The writers wouldn't all-of-a-sudden make Diane into Chuck's "real" mother. That would be too random. That's silly. Plus that would mean Nate banged Chuck's mom... you know what, maybe that's not beyond the realm of possibility after all.
Blair needs to either grow up and decide her future or she needs to quit all ties with Louis. We're talking marriage here. If she is going to pine on Chuck and might be bearing his baby, she's got no business marrying someone who loves her about as much as she loves Chuck.
Blair/Chuck... well really just Chuck
I LOVE the psychiatrist so far. I really didn't want Chuck to have another meaningless hook up-buddy. The fact that she laid down the law was a fantastic refresher.
Yeah, I thought they were great at one point, but come on... a guy has got to learn to stop after being rejected so many times. At least Blair tries to be with Louis. Lonely boy is just an annoyance at this point.
I loved them once upon a time (coughyearsagocough), but they kinda came out of nowhere. This episode should be more anger venting. Then sadness can happen on another couple of episodes. That'll help with transition from Dan madly in love with Blair to Dan in love
I really don't think Blair is the love of Dan's life, and I don't think that's what Serena was trying to say or why she was upset. She was unpleasantly surprised by how her character was portrayed and by Blair having a big role in the book. But at the end of the book everyone turns their back on Dan, so what does that say about Blair's role? And Dan started writing this book when he was in love with Serena. There are elements of truth to the book obviously, but it's still fiction.
And also, I think someone has to actually have had a relationship with someone to even be considered a candidate for being the love of someone's life, which Dan and Blair haven't.
I still think Derena are meant to be.
GG ALWAYS WAS ABOUT CHAIR AND DERENA, ABOUT THEIR ISSUES.And we loved old GG. That's it, simple like that!! We miss these couples so muc.
To add to my last comment, in other words, I don't think they are rushing Dan and Serena.
Half a year is hardly sufficient time to say that Blair is the love of Dan's life. Like @Uncle Jackass said, Dan himself thinks that you can't know something like that until you're old.
It's not like Dan and Serena will get back together right now, there's just the potential.
I mean, they were about to get back together last season more than halfway in. Is everyone forgetting this? Serena and Chuck being with others are the whole reason Dan and Blair became such good friends in the first place.
Storylines really are getting super far fetched on this show. Are we really supposed to believe that HARVEY FREAKING WEINSTEIN actually wanted the movie rights to Inside?!
The show is not good enough without a Dair scene. While I hate watching chair scenes in fear that the two might get together, at least I feel something. I feel nothing for Blouis, and I feel like I have really tried to feel something, but the chemistry is not there. Tonight's episode was the worst of the season for me. It was just boring, and the thought of Derena getting back together seems rushed and gross to me.
I think that Serena's statement to Blair was telling: Blair was the main character in Dan's book. Blair is the love of Dan's life. I just don't think that it is logical at all that Dan would start to like Serena again when he is still in love with Blair. I also think that the writers and producers have developed feelings and scenes with Dan and Blair for a reason and that something will happen in the future.
I will keeping DAIRING to DAIR (and keeping my fingers crossed). I really want them to be together.
OMG, I liked Dan and Serena together! That's when I know this episode kind of stunk! They really were the good part of the episode. I wasn't too interested in a lot of the rest. Blair and the prince are terrible. I liked Eleanor/ Blair. Chuck was great but he and Blair need to interact.
Lmfao @Heddy 5th point. I am so sick of seeing Louis and his sad face and hearing that unbearable accent! Apparently Grace Kelly didn't do much for Monaco in the acting department because Louis and co. have no credibility whatsoever. Blair may have called Dan a muppet, but Louis is the one who looks like Kermit the frog! The reason I believe Chuck is the father is because this guy is so whipped, I couldn't possibly imagine him as anything but a boner-shrinker!!
They put them together to create a "dramatic" love triangle between the three characters. Dan isn't a part of that triangle (according to the writers), contrary to what some Dair fans might say.
This episode was the poorest of the season. Far too many guest stars monopolizing the episode and Blair stuck with them acting the way she did didn't make me like it more. Probably less.
I love Blair and Chuck the most and hope scenes are coming for them because it's getting very hard to watch GossipGirl right now.
I loved Serena this episode and the Dan and Serena scenes were actually good. Blake had material given to her and she knocked it out of the park tonight.
Chuck learning that he needs to grow from a complete stranger was needed this episode. It's him slowly growing and it's nice. Please have these steps lead back to CB.
I'm curious about the Bart and Diane connection.
has anyone thought about the fact that Diana may be Chucks mother? Why else would they mention his moms birthdate and show a picture from Barts past?
I do not understand because the writers put Blair of girlfriend with Louis
I also loved Dan's quote:
"And how can either of us know who the love of our lives.. um.. until we're old? This isn't over yet is it?"... they are after all 20' something and the shipping wars are way too stupid. I also want more seasons to be produced.
Food for thought?
I liked Beatrice.
I want strong, fierce Blair who was with Chuck. Chuck knows she's a powerful woman and should stand up to these royals.
Chuck was great.
I liked Derena too. Brought me back to season 1 which I liked them in.
I want Chuck and united Blair again
whoever said beatrice acted more like blair than blair herself in this episode was absolutely right. can beatrice have her own spin off? i love her.
It would be brilliant that Diana was connected by Chuck
Maybe she it helps to be a better person
I want to see the old Blair back! The spunky, bitchy Blair that we all loved! I want her to take down Diana, Ivy and Beatrice all at the same time. All the crazy bitches on this show right now seems to be after Blair. They don't give a damn about Serena.
Beatrice is brilliant. At least my his character likes much
Maybe Serena and Nate is the correct
And ewww, Derena. Don't get me wrong, I like them as a couple but the familial connections they have are disgusting. They are STEP-SIBLINGS and SHARE A BROTHER. I only still like them as a couple because they dated first w/out knowing about their parents and brother.
I still like them better than "Dair"
