The moments leading up to the Chair kiss and the kiss itself was hot but the last thing i wanted was a cut away to Dorota's face. Show us the action! lol
I love Dorota is such a Chair shipper. She ,Chuck and Blair were really the compelling pieces but they needed more screen time. I felt like Diana hogged too much of it up. Oh, and I wanted the kiss with Blair and Chuck to be longer.
Dorota was the absolute best, as always... well underneath Chair.... CHAIR FTW!!!!!!
"Are you willing to get a haircut and change your clothes?"
"Then I'm not sure what I can do"
"There's no way Max could be mistaken for Nate, much like no one could mistake Serena for Charlie, or Juliet ... or Jenny for that matter."
hah so true! oh season 4...
although the canadian promo for next week looks pretty good!
I didn't mind this one too much. I loved the Chuck and Blair scenes but was expecting more. I felt like their scenes were too short, TBH. I liked the dream sequence alot and it mirrored Blair not trusting Chuck pretty well. As hard as Blair tried to convince herself Chuck cannot changed the audience saw she was dead wrong. I was shocked Chuck and Dorota were in on that scheme. It's really amazing at Chuck's growth thus far and ,sad to say, Blair is actually beginning to go the opposite direction, IMO. I think Blair's lines last week carried over to this one. To an extent she has given up on Chuck and I think it will be a big mistake on her part. While I love Chuck's growth it's going to start getting ridiculous in order to keep Chuck and Blair apart in the future since they clearly love and want each other. All Blair has to figure out is Chuck is changing.
I kind of liked Nate and Ivy but what shocked me is the grandfather being behind everything. It's not unheard of but I was surp
I liked the episode for the Grandfather twist and I'm liking Nate/Ivy.
I liked Blair in denial and I loved Chair scenes. Its so stally but I get why she needs to test him, but I wanted more. The kiss was hot but too short, and while I love that they are definitely not over each other and that Chuck is willing to do anything for her happiness, I want Blair to wake up and see he is changing and for her to admit that she does love him. But he needs to gain her trust. I am ok with a slow Chair rebuild but I am impatient as well, I just want so much more of them!!!
and I liked the Sleep No More bit, very interesting feel. Overall compelling and gives me lots of hope and expectations for Chuck and Blair and also the Nate/Ivy scenario. But I need more Chair!!!
Chuck and Blair made the episode for me. I know some people are angry at Blair but she has good reason to not trust Chuck and to want to move on with Louis. She obviously still loves Chuck but she's scared. I felt bad for Chuck because every week it gets more and more clear how much he loves her, is willing to give up for her and is growing up as a human being. But he's done some terrible things to Blair so it would be unrealistic to expect her to just believe he's changed and jump back in his arms. That would be crazy.
Oh and ITA with Heather. I'm beginning to think Chuck really is the baby daddy. As for the rest of the episode, well I just cannot warm up to Dan and care about him and his angst. The writers have worked really hard to try to make me care about him but I just don't. I liked Nate and Ivy and think they have chemistry but I'm not real invested in them yet. The Grandpa Vanderbilt surprise was good but there was way too much Diana. Needed MOAR CHAIR!
What a terrible episode.
I didn't even realize the Chair kiss was the BIG KISS that all the spoilers were about.
Nate's grandpa twist? WHO CARES. Also, Diana is so annoying.
I just cannot get over how terrible this episode was. Blair was being immature again. Nate's still only thinking about girls. Dan's having a pity party. Serena was boring. Charlie can gtfo. Chuck redeeming himself was good until the end. He has to kiss her to set her free? Seriously some lazy writing.
The CB stuff was pretty compelling, I thought, although it did seem like yet another stall tactic. Blair's reasoning was a little convoluted and annoying, but I can understand why she wants so badly to prove that Chuck is still the old Chuck- her feelings for him have obviously resurfaced and she's starting to doubt her relationship with Louis. So she was firmly-in-denial Blair.
I felt really bad for Chuck though, it was actually pretty heartless of her to tease him like that- and then, once he does exactly what she was trying to get him to do, slap him and tell him how awful he is. I appreciate that Chuck's made huge strides this season, but I hope he's not going to just lie down and let her crap all over him like this. Part of growing up and working on himself is figuring out that he deserves to be happy too, it's not just about Blair's happiness.
The main problem with this episode was that the other major plot, the Serena/Max/Ivy/Nate/Diana... pentagon? Was so convoluted I co
Worst episode of the season for me so far, I had no interest in Diana/Ivy/Nate stuff. It seems like another storyline just like Ben/Juliette and Raina for them to wrap up and never mention again.
Blair and Chuck. The writers took Blair's character growth back a whole year by having her so caught up in Chuck's business. I thought it was a good start having Chuck apologize and it looked like both of them were growing up, and this episode just made it seem pointless. Whether these two are end or not, it doesn't make sense to bring them back together yet, the writers chose to keep Louis and add a baby to the mix, so I didn't get the point of this entire episode. Last season Blair realized she wanted more than Chuck, even if they had one last time together because they were scared of letting go, Chuck wanted more for her too. I would have liked to think Blair was moving on for the time being and after last week Chuck was too. But no, if Blair is moving on, Chuck is not. If Chuck is movi
I have to admit that - while the CB scene and kiss were perfect, and Chuck continues to be wonderful - it did feel like a stalling tactic this week. It's like the writers are hellbent on getting Blair to her wedding day, but they know they can't just ignore CB the whole time. I hope the plot line picks up there soon.
As for Diana? I have no idea what her point is anymore. I was intrigued by her connection to Chuck, but now it turns out she's been hired by Nate's grandfather? What? What is wrong with Nate's image and why did his grandfather think publicly dating Elizabeth Hurley would help it?
I still don't get why grandfather is after gossip girl, and what's serena part in it, besides serenate, wich I really don't want , so boring, and Blair so uncapable of giving chuck the benefit of the doub, is nice to see chuck willing to do anything for her.
IMO, Dorota was thinking Louis was the best choice for blair, that explains why she ask Chuck to kiss her, but after the kiss scene dorota realize that Blair still loves him, and the only way to blair happiness is staying with Chuck, and now she will apologize with blair, telling her the reason why Chuck kissed her. That explains why Blair appears at empire next episode. Just hoping not to see Chair together right now, cause will be impossible for they end together and staying in good terms too many episodes, the writter will not do that.
Hmmm. The one thing I def. got from this episode is that I do indeed think that Chuck is the babydaddy. That is the only explanation for Blair's childish behavior. She lied because she never thought that Chuck would be capable of being responsible enough for her and the baby and when she started to see that she might have been wrong she went into panic mode and pretty much tried to justify said decision. I think she is going to run away from Louis at the wedding and run to Chuck to tell him the truth. Chuck is angry at her lies and lashes out at her. She loses the baby and turns to Dan in her grief. They do Dair for a little while until Blair realizes that she loves Chuck. Chuck forgives her, they reconcile and the series ends. Now this is all conjecture and I hope that I am completely wrong because I loathe Dair and I hate the idea of only getting Chair at the last minute(such a copout for the writers to do). But I can't help feeling that this is the way it is going to go down
The CB kiss was amazingly hot but I agree that Blair's reasoning was ridiculously convoluted. I hated how they cut away from it too. Love how much Chuck is changing and growing. Love him proving he really wants to put Blair's happiness first. I have zero doubt that Chair is the love story we're supposed to root for now. I think Dair may end up having some pathetic fling when she runs away from her wedding and is still in denial over Chuck. That's all I can think. The rest of the episode was kind of boring except for the last moment with Grandfather Vanderbilt. But even that isn't enough to get me interested.
awful episode. just aweful given the hype surrounding it. and i agree with the comment about diana becoming the center of this show. again, the writers are making the mistake of MAKING THE SHOW REVOLVE AROUND GUEST STARS. these writers never learn!
I don't know- I liked the moment when everything clicked and the schemes were revealed but there was still a full 30 minutes left in the show after that! I agree with basically everyone else that this was too convoluted, too messy yet lazy and muddled. Too many guest stars once again- with the mains being used as pawns. Only episode 5 beats this out on the boring scale for this season ...
Part of me liked seeing Blair be schemey again but they basically just undid Chuck's apology and that whole nice moment where she accepted it and "new beginnings" yadda yadda. Wtf? I mean, Blair not only needed to hear those words for closure but also needed to know they were sincere for closure (whether her and Chuck come together in the end or not). I hope she learns that he was honest because Blair as a character deserved an apology for all of Chuck's transgressions. It's vital for both characters to move forward. And, also, by using the kiss as a plot device, they sucked the emotion and thus so
I'm so sick of Diana and her manipulations and when it turned out she is working for Nates grandfather it took things to a completely creepy level. I'm sorry but no grandfather, UES or not, wants some scheming cougar to seduce their grandson to "reform his character"...that's pretty convoluted even for GG.
Nice to see Chair together. More Chuck and Blair and less Charlie and Diana please!
Nate, Serena, Dan and Charlie's affairs are all a bit boring and just plain at the moment. I was seriously hoping for Chuck to not kiss her and then Blair would be more swayed to pick him over Louie. But alas, no, Dorota ruined it. I'm hoping that the next few episodes will have some more Chair action!!
It was funny watching Blair try to seduce Chuck.
I watched the whole episode and enjoyed the Diana, Charlie, Nate, Serena, Max story arc and even gasped a couple times but it wasn't much to write home about. I've gotta give props to the writers because I did not see where this episode was going until it happened! It kept things exciting, even for a transition episode.
The only actual OMG moment in the episode for me however was in the beginning when Blair thought aloud that Chucks appologies were merely to win Blair back and I was like OMG Blair, really? And then she thought that Chuck saved a duck for her and then she threw herself at Chuck and teased him and then slapped him... Common Blair! Really? And then it occurred to me. She still loves him and was about to be crushed if he has moved on. Only... he has. Atleast I think so.
I thought the CB kiss was the ONLY thing good about this episode. I definitely felt the usual Ed and Leighton chemistry and wish the kiss had been longer. The fact that it went as long as it did proves that Blair still has feelings for Chuck. THis episode was so bad though... but because of CB, I can't freaking quit this show no matter how hard I try!
It is not cheap shot but the truth as I do like Vanessa and Dan (however, Dan's fickleness from last season and pulling a Serena when it came to Vanessa made me wary of his character). So that is more your gripe than mine as I always thought he was the male Vanessa but just more funny and had more of connection to the other characters because he went to school with them and when the writers needed a scape goat they went to Vanessa or Jenny.
Enemies... you watch this show too much.
I thought this episode was pretty lame for the most part. Chuck and Serena were the only redeeming parts for me. Chuck because he had Monkey, looked great and was really just awesome. And Serena for once seemed mature and made relatively good decisions, I just wish we would have seen more of her and less of Charlie. I can't stand Charlie and Diana is getting really tiresome.
