1. Why would Blair promise that to God in the first place? In the beginning I was like IS BLAIR SERIOUS? Until I thought about all of it after watching and I realized it was a moment of desperation, and even if it sounds ridiculous on the surface, she can't take a chance on something happening to Chuck. She'd forever feel like she's the reason for it and she'd blame herself forever. But even if I get now where she's coming from, I highly doubt God reasons the way we do as humans so I guess it's safe to say Blair's "promise" to God isn't understood by God in the same terms Blair does and that we'll never know what happens after we make the choice we make and that's part of the whole mystery of God... and of life.
2. Dan's feelings for Blair were majorly glossed over.
3. Can Serena be more serious about her being hung up on Dan? LOL.
didnt hate this episode just how much blairs deal with god irritated me and how she has to still stay with louis when she doesnt even love him. nate and the charlie storylines are the most interesting storylines in the show right now shocking since the least storyline id expect to enjoy the most would be nates . dan and serena were cute wish it wasnt as fake as they made even tho it is a fake relationship. loved chuck as usual and as much as i love blair/chair i kinda wish chuck would tell her where to go. cos seriously for a woman whos just lost her baby n nearly the man she loves she should be following her heart or at least grieving on her own not messing with both chuck and louis feelings, shes already messed with chucks head it'll be louis heart she'll be breaking on their wedding day. but im not giving up on this show or chair hope to see better episodes:)
Okay, one more thing, I don't know if they avoided the baby plot on purpose, but REALLY?! I didn't like the baby thing, but they never used it properly either ! At least like other people said, had they ddone the "we cannot be together because I feel guilty I lost Louis' baby", woulda made more sense ! And ivy telling Rufus about her true identity wan't even mentionned properly...
What can we do to get Penn to cut his hair? Last I heard, his Buckley movie was finished filming. So, what gives?
there is a interview with ed on E news check it out! Its with Kristin on Jan,13
Didn't like the episode, at all. The big parts were really predictable ! Blair's deal, we knew about that already: I remember comments were made when the promo came out, suggesting the content of the deal, RIDICULOUS ! Get a grip Blair for Pete's sake ! Oh and Nate's car, please, that one came up too ! Serena's "plot" was just boring, the "only plan" she could think of was pretending that Dan and her are together, cOME ON ! She didn't want him with Blair ! How convenient. The only thing that was interesting : Charlie Rhodes, the Original. At looong last ! Thought she was dead or something ! And Blair's line to Chuck , the scene was really sad. Gossip girl putting Nate in her pocket was a smart move considering the fact the he wanna take her down... Apart from that, disappointing episode.
On the other hand, Derena was cute. I never thought I'd say that again.
I knew this was the stupid thing from The End of the Affair. I know GG drew inspiration from other stories, but this one is a shitty story and should have not made it in.
What a lame episode for the Chuck/Blair/Louis storyline. I just feel like that the writers are trying to stall Chair until the wedding just for the sake of a wedding, lame. Yay for Derena! Even though they are siblings it still doesn't feel awkward. The reason why seasons 1 and 2 were the best was because of Chair and Derena. Bringing the real Charlie in is intriguing and I hope that she's better than Ivy, who I hope will never come back. Nate is finally interesting! The text from GG in the end gave me chills. I love it when GG is actually involved in the show. Overall I thought the episode had a lot of good set ups, but the main storyline just feels long and Blair becoming religious? Come on! I bet that a 5 year old could come up with a better sl.

Everyone knows that Blair and Louis are over and I feel like all this build up for the wedding is pointless. I feel like this season will finally be good after the wedding. Yay for Derena!

Blair needs therapy, or at least a less idiotic priest. Father Smythe is an idiot. He needs to go do some training with the priest from season 1, who pointed out that God is not a genie.
Dan and Serena enabling this bothers me too, but Dan has to in order to fill the role of the suspected second affair that never actually happened. I'm surprised by how much of this was lifted from the film version of EotA. I wonder if they have to pay a royalty to the Greene estate?
The return of stalker Chuck would have been more fun, if it hadn't been part of a nonsensical partnership with Louis. And as much fun as stalker!Chuck can be, I hope he quits by 5.14, because 5.13 is the wedding episode.
I really enjoyed this episode. Though Blairs reasons are irrational she did just lose her child what woman would be rational. Couldn't help myself tearing up during the countdown scene with the music and the look on Dan's face it broke my heart.
Well Chuck's maturity flew right out the window in this episode, a really nice grown up threat to Dan Chuckels.
What a LAME assed excuse for Blair not to be with Chuck! So absurd! It doesn't even make sense that she is marrying a man she isn't in love with! Why does she feel the need to be with anybody? Can't she just be single? Surely it would be more logical to stay single than marry a man you don't love. I miss the good old days of season 1 & 2 when gossip girl was fun & sexy! Now it is just ridiculous & dull! ZZZZzzzzzzzzzzz...
Just a little suggestion - in my opinion, a review of an episode of tv should at least offer a synopsis of the episode. I would like to read the review and have an idea of what happened on the show. Instead, these reviews are more editorializing and criticism. Maybe it's me, but most times I don't find these reviews helpful if I missed an episode - save the comments for the roundtable, and just let us know exactly what happened - stick to the facts, or at least offer all the facts.
It was ABSURD!! RIDICULOUS!!! The reason why Chuck and Blair can't be together is a promise to God? It is an offense to us, the fans, who have followed the show for many years, that they write something as absurd as that. The show used to be great, the plot lines, the romantic or heartbreacking scenes... but what happened yesterday left us disappointed
does anyone know the names of the songs used?
They could've made Blair shutting Chuck out about guilt over the miscarriage (or really, paid any attention to the baby storyline at al) and it would've made about a billion times more sense than Blair suddenly believing in pacts with God. Especially by throwing in an actual priest who apparently doesn't understand enough about religion to tell her what an idiot she's being. The fact that Dan and Serena are both going along with this ridiculousness makes me judge them as well.
But mostly what this episode accomplished was making me understand exactly why Ed said the things he did in his interviews- because after this, I'm going to start rooting for Chuck to move on as well. Not because Blair should be with Dan, but because she should be alone. She'll have her craziness to keep her company anyway, and maybe then Chuck can finally be happy for like two seconds.
I hated so much in this episode. I hated them ignoring Blair losing her baby. I hated that they gave Blair such a dumb reason for breaking up with Chuck. I hated the weird turn arounds in behavior like one minute Chuck is telling Blair he wanted to be there for her because of the baby and the next minute he's scheming with Louis to humiliate Blair. Another example is Blair suddenly becoming religious. WTF writers. I hated Penn Badgley's hair. The only things I loved were the limo flashbacks, the last Chuck and Blair scene and Ed and Leighton's stunning performances. They are too good for this show and so are so the Chair fans that keep getting jerked around. Not a Dair fan but they have been jerked around too. Wrap this up writers. Do not drag this out much more writers. I beg you
This episode was weak sauce. Blair definitely was the highlight of it in all her forms. The writers have really run out of ideas. Another CW show already used that title for one of their episodes fairly recently (The Vampire Diaries). And I know the title is a reference to Graham Greene's novel, but I cannot believe they actually went there with the plot. I wouldn't be surprised if Blair married Louis and then he died of pneumonia from walking in the rain at the beginning of this episode. I feel like the writing's getting that bad.
Coming from a french fan: Seriously Blair ? Your deal sucks! This is just bull****!!
What is wrong with Rufus!!!!?
I dont get it did ivy not tell him the truth.......
I did not hate the episode, Blair pact with god was out of character and over dramatic but I totally expected Blair to be out of character she just had a very traumatic experience, lost a baby and almost the man she loves...
i hate those writers. stupid stupid stupid writers. i hope you're reading this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ur ruining my favourite show!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! the ratings aren't even good anymore. get a clue. take a hint.
ya know i think... if blair has entered a state of depression because of losing the baby. if they had showed she actually did have a close bond with her baby & she jus didn't show it... lik maybe she had already started shopping for baby clothes... or maybe she had a few good parenting books around her room. i would've believed that for her behaviour. it's like she sacrificed her baby to save chuck & she's totally depressed... that wouldve been believable.
You are so right I'm about done too. I hope all the writers read these comments. Seems like the writers have lost there spark and if Chair is not back together I'm sure some of there ratings will drop.
