I loved this episode :). Nate became a headliner instead of a back up dancer. We got to know a little bit more about Ivy and I think I am beginning to like her. Got a look at Blair insecurity problem,and I think Chuck is finally slowly redeeming himself at least to me. Dan over obsessing about what someone on twitter said about him was a little 4th grade girl status, but entertaining. Serena EH!! she is not even relevant on this show anymore.
I still disliked Sleep No More more, but this episode is very close. The winning factor being that Diana was not in it, and I feel like Nate is becoming more involved again, considering the last time he did anything worth remembering was season 3?
This entire season just feels like a major filler to get to the 100th episode where Blair and Louis will finally be over. Because we all know it should have happened the first episode. Pointless storylines filled with Charlie/Ivy, I swear this character gets more screen time every episode!
Dan was completely underused, it would have been nice for him to show up to be present at the Max/Ivy scene just so he could interact with other people!
And still no Dair, this show is seriously so boring without their interaction. Even if listens to her babble on about Chuck/Louis next episode it will still be better than nothing at all.
I have never felt any "epicness" watching Chuck/Blair, the only thing they're good at is breaking up, and hating
Loved the episode. This season is way better than the past two season's already, no doubt about it. I like Chivy, but she did have a lot of screentime this episode, I'll give you that. Perhaps a little more focus on other characters would have been better. I'm a little confused, also, because I really don't know what to expect of her storyline. It makes me nervous, afraid that of how things are gonna end for her.
I'm glad they're being so consistent bringing back old storylines and characters. I just don't wanna see Cece die. I like her too much.
I absolutely adore what they're doing with Nate this season. They're Zuckenberging Dan (the character I hate the most) and Clark Kenting Nate. C'mon. Best. Decision. Ever.
Can't wait for the next episode and I'm glad the show's gonna be back in January already, it seems like the midseason is going to end with a bang.
It was an okay episode although gotta say Charlie/Ivy is becoming my favorite character. Can't wait for next week promos look really good.
i have this theory that nate has been playing dumb the whole time. he is gossip girl
I liked this episode Nate was so up front this episode and Charlie i actually like her and the storyline but can't wait to see what happens when everyone learns the truth though of they will Jk this is gossip girl ofcourse they will blairs pregnancy has kinda been pushed back to the background think the baby dies next ep but overall good episode good side storyline for dan
@ Miss Mars
SO TRUE! OMFG you got it in one. this is why both DAIR and CHAIR fans are over this crap writing and why i'm giving up on this show! seriously, this is turning out to be bold and the beautiful -- what audience are they writing for?? do they think we're stupid!! this episode just felt like a total waste of time!
I think the problem isn't Chair but the writers subtle need to compare Blair to Serena and Chuck to Nate.
Seriously, Blair was at W but was a complete failure. Serena at the film company total success except she left for moral reasons.
Nate is such a stand up guy he would never give a secret to Gossip Girl but Chuck will sell Blair for a hotel.
I really feel like for some reason the writers need to show both Chuck and Blair as failures and I am not sure why. IT really ruins their character growth as individuals. I really would have loved seeing Blair do well in school or at her internship and let her find her footing without Chuck but Blair had to fail at that. Every season we have to see Blair humiliated in some way and its getting awful.
BTW, for anyone who wants to know, the last song was "the twilight hour" by Still Corners.
disappointing episode. absolutely no OMFG moments. ivy's secret should have been blown ages ago. i like her more than S. i also liked the tiny and lame storyline that was the rhodes reunion. i'm over max and i want to see where the real charlie rhodes is. it was nice to see CeCe but could have been better story line with the pills and trust fund.
Again hardly any rufus / lily. did like that rufus encouraged dan to get outside instead of rebuking hate mail about inside. sweet scene with his agent and dan but really, the whole amazon thing was stupid.
chair scenes, moving but still nothing actually happening and i don't even like chair. i'm confused with what is happening tho between louis/dan/chuck/blair/baby because in the promo they totally manipulated the scene to make it that chuck said 'i want you to be happy with me."
when in fact he said, "i just want you to be happy, but i'm sorry it wasn't with me!" so does this then leave blair to choose if she wants chuck, or louis
This season is a waste. With all the perfectly good main characters and possible storylines gossip girl has to offer, this season like season 4 completely focuses on what should be background characters. Anything to do with the ivy/Charlie plot is horrible/boring. What about the actual main cast. As is you rarely see Dan or Nate while Serena's turned into a complete moron with vacant emotions. Simply put the writers are killing this show for me.
Way too much Chivy. The actress is not good enough to occupy that much screentime. Max is actually played by a much better actor. Too bad he turned out to be an opportunist. Still waiting for for Serena to have her own story that isn't peripheral to charlie. I am really curious to know what happened to the real Charlie, though.
The Blair/Chuck storyline was just silly and bordering on gratuitous. The writers are trying way too hard to fabricate these Chair scenes. Not only do they look very contrived, but they make Blair look like an idiot.
Nate was probably the best part of this episode.
Total garbage. There is nothing left in this show.
You may have read my earlier post, but completely agreed. albeit, you said it in a slightly less cynical way :P.
Here's the thing.
I LOVED Chair in season one and two. They were what got me hooked on this show, and I rarely cared about the other characters or their storylines.
Even season three I enjoyed their scenes, but I felt that the writers lost a lot of opportunities to explore these characters within a functioning relationship - one in which they went back to what had made them such great allies in season one where they turned their scheming on others, rather than each other. But for most of the season it seemed like they spent their time keeping secrets from each other and not really discussing their feelings - that is that despite the I love you's they had not really progressed from their season two selves. Still I was all set for Chuck to redeem himself in season four.
But it never happened. And by making them sorta almost get back together early in the season, plus Chuck's various season 4 love interests, sort of made Chair lose its epicness for me. Plus I hated the way the r
Nate Archibald was actually so amazing this episode, he almost overshadowed Chuck and Blair. ALMOST. Mostly, though, I LOVE YOU CHUCK BASS.
And Ivy is pretty awesome, but she needs to stop stealing all of Serena's story lines.
Just watched the previews - oh my god. Blair and Chuck are going to realize they want to be together only to wreck (Princess Diana style a la paparazzi) and she's going to lose the baby :( Which of course she'll then find out was Chuck's to begin with. I'm so sad and I really hope I'm not right.
Surprisingly I actually liked this episode a lot. The Chair scenes were fantastic and Ivy/Charlie has actually grown on me. Plus the scripting in some of it was hilarious.
Oh how wonderful, I had slightly elevated hopes but it looks like we're actually just getting another season of 'The Chuck and Blair Show: To the Exclusion of All Others'. I’ve been here before, I recognise that tree, etc. etc.
I am bored, plainly, I seriously can't be the only one. Chuck and Blair were always my favourite regular characters (shocker, are there even other characters on the show?), but the last couple of seasons have gradually reduced them to limp, pale caricatures of their early season selves.
I have no issue with ‘Chair’, I honestly don’t care who Blair ends up with at this point, but this constant back and forth is killing their characters. Blair has become even more immature than usual this season, and Chuck seems to be in a constant state of redemption followed by his inevitable downfall, but we seem to skip the part where he actually develops as a character... For God's sake, it makes me sick to think about how much money these writers probably get
Sorry, should read "My only hope is that there really won't be a wedding, Chair reunites during the second half of this season,and all will be well."
Chivy is getting as annoying as Vanessa was - hope the character gets booted off soon! maybe when the real Charlie shows up
I'm tired of all this angst and pain on Chair. We know Chair will be ok from the accident, Blair will lose her baby, and for some reason, even after her declaration of love to Chuck in the limo, she still goes through with this royal wedding out of guilt. My only hope is that Chair is there really won't be a wedding, Chair reunites during the second half of this season,and all will be well. Eventually. BTW, LOVED Leighton and Ed scenes, especially, Blair's reaction to Chuck's telling her about returning her ring to Harry Winston. So good. Also enjoyed Sylvia Weinstock mistaking Chuck for the groom when she should know him because she did a cameo at Bart & Lily's rehearsal dinner plus you can't tell me she doesn't see the news or a tabloid :) I will watch GG next week for Chair because I love Ed and Leighton so much.
The short, but highlight of this episode goes to Clark Kent: aka Nate Archibald. With all those that are manipulating him whom he doesn't see (even the grandfather in this episode), he tries to do the right thing. I can see a better candidate for a future Senator Nate Archibald than Tripp.
Kudos to the Man of Lacrosse.
I thought one of the saddest scenes in the episode was when the cake lady confused Chuck for the groom (1st of all, really? The groom is a prince.) and Chuck had to tell her that he wasn't the groom :'-(
:) :) :) ;) :^D Xp :-0 :-D
Yaaaayyyy! As a Chair fan I'm waaay happy that Chair still loves each other! I feel like jumping on a couch a la Tom Cruise.
Oooh I hope they play "Blue Jeans" by Lana Del Rey in a Chair scene!
The promos look to me like Chuck and Blair rekindle their feelings in a limo (like it started) and the paparazzi cause them to crash and Blair suffers a miscarriage.
I think it's sweet that Chuck would still be with Blair even if the child isn't his : )
