Gossip Girl > Gossip Girl Review: The End and the Beginning > Comments Page 4
i am truely disappointed with this episode... with the whole plot this season actually & last season. swear they need to get better writers. such a waste. a complete waste. the writers r completely ruining gossip girl.
at this point... chuck is suffering.
dan is suffering.
louis is being led on & is in for some major heartbreak & embarrassment when blair does leave him.
blair is unhappy.
serena is just there...
i'm actually interested in nate's story & charlie's story... i wanna know what's going on with them.
but as far as blair & all he love triangle's go... it's getting boringgg monotonous... the writers r drawwwwwwing this thing out too long. it's like we know at the wedding blair is gonna leave louis & be with chuck... wooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww... what's the point of watching if u know what's gonna happen????????????? no point at all.
i mean this entire episode was predictable. at first, i have to admit, i was getting a little suspicious that dan & blair may really be having an affair but it was a major letdown when i found out they weren't. does blair really need someone to walk her to church???????? she used to go by herself in the first season when she was a she-devil. also, it seems like such a pathetic attempt to get rid of the baby... effective but pathetic. that whole plotline couldve been used alot better. i mean the queen B being pregnant in the first place was such a huge deal & they downplayed it until the very last episode last yr & got rid of it the very first episode this year. such a waste. i expected the writers to allow chuck & blair to continue having an affair... but major scheming involved in trying to get out of the wedding... like setting up louis to give blair an excuse to get away from him. something anything
i absolutely hated this episode. my only reason for watching this show anymore is out of loyalty to the show & leighton meester.
This is crazy that they are using God to keep Chuck and Blair apart. If the writers don't know how to write Chuck and Blair together than they don't need to be writing at all and just find another job. I think I'm done with this show. They are ruining Blair by having her so indecisive, and she can't choose which man to be with. They're turning her into Serena, and I don't want to be around to see it. I used to love Blair so much, but not anymore.
They could of atleast made some sort of montage of Blair's mourning, not eating not talking to anyone, crying, looking weak just a bit so we atleast get the idea that she cared for the baby. The religion plot is abit OTT and definately feels forced. Its much more realistic if Blair chose to be with Louis because she felt like she had infact lost HIS child and she has the connection with him and wants to honour that. GRRRRR. Although I am happy the real Charlie is her, but from what Carol said earlier I thought something terrible happened to her?
This show is but a shell of itself. I didn't like this episode and the fact that they literally copied a movie and it's music and stuck it in as a plot on GG is baffling. I was miffed at why they would waste not showing Blair have a breakdown over her child and I was even more annoyed with the fact that the never-endi ng obstacles between Chuck and Blair continue. I think Ed and Leighton Meester are the only thing good about this rotting carcass of a show. It's sad that I used to love this show and now the writers have killed so much I loved about it. I'll watch again if Chuck and Blair get back together. Until then, it's not worth a second of my time
Exactly, @ Mary. I'm a Catholic myself and that isn't what the religion teaches. That whole thing just felt too forced. They really should've just used the miscarriage as a reason. In the beginning I thought that's why Blair was the way she is. But after that explanation (through the flashback), it kinda seemed like she didn't care so much anymore about the miscarriage.
As a religious person (Protestant, not Catholic), I TOTALLY agree with everything Mary said. At this point, if I don't get my Chair reunion in the 100th episode, I'm done with this show. After the last interview with Safran saying the love triangle will become a love SQUARE, looks like I've got 2 more eps before I'm out.
I must say that I've never loved Serena more. She's the ONLY main character who's not wildly OOC right now.
I love gossip girl..i have been watching it from the begining although i live in greece and i am a huge fan of chair! but let's face it.... the show should better end this season-no more!it is becoming more and more stupid- the plot the dialogues-most of the characters have become negligible and weakened(except for blair-until this season anyway)i am more and more dissapointed an i am sad for that. i m just waiting until the wedding episode. if it also sucks like all this season i sure gonna drop it...
This was the worst GG episode EVER !!! At first, I thought (and hoped) it was a dream or something like that! it was all so unrealistic and the dialogues were plain awful! Soooo bad!! I truly thought it must be a joke. And is it just me or are the actors playing worse by every episode? if next weeks episode isn't better I'm so done with gossip girl. truly disappointed !...
@Mary: You & I are >>>>>here!
There was a beginning, a middle and an end. There- I've said something nice about this episode. If Blair truly believed in God, she would know that He doesn't make If-Then Pacts. One would think that the priest would have set her straight but nothing made sense last night. How does Aunt Lily really not know what her own niece looks like again? Also, I could understand Nate just finding out about the brakes but really, he was surprised that he hopped in the wrong car? The Dan-Blair-Serena story--- I just can't.
The only thing I could come up with that explains why Blair isn't openly grieving for her baby, her own flesh and blood, is that she found out the baby was really Chuck's and she feels guilty so much that her staying away from Chuck is part of her 'pennance.' Chuck was the only saving grace in scenes with or without Blair and the completion of this episode gets us one step closer to 5.13 and hopefully the long awaited Chair reunion.
As a Catholic I was a little upset at how the priest was portrayed as not helpful at all, "That's between you and God." A real spiritual leader would explain that God doesn't make 'deals' like that. Chuck lived because it wasn't his time to die, not because of any bartering Blair did. The whole thing felt like a very contrived reason to keep Chuck and Blair apart a little bit longer and keep up us all waiting on bated breath for the Chair reunion. I would have more believe Blair refusing all these men lining up for her because of depression over losing her baby, or something related to that.
Wow. I thought that was one of the worst Gossip Girl episodes ever. It isn't even about mocking Blair's religious epiphany of sorts but of how out of character it is for her. I just thought all of that was so forced. The flashbacks weren't all that great either. And the Chuck and Louis alliance was so hard to believe. Only parts I enjoyed were the Chair scenes, which I didn't enjoy as much as I usually enjoy the scenes between these two. I guess it's interesting that they bring in the real Charlotte Rhodes but I thought it was definitely too soon. They could've done a lot more with that eventually but it seemed a little rushed. Over-all it was just a bad episode. It wouldn't be hard for next week's to be better.
Stop insulting the scenario about Blair and God. It makes sense? She just lost her baby and was in an accident. Something that traumatic has bound to have repercussions on a persons psyche.
I hate DB more than possibly anyone, but even I'll admit they went about this plotline is the absolute worst way, doing a disservice to both Chair and Dair. They had to make Blair an idiot to keep her away from Chuck, make Dan an idiot to keep him moving forward with her insanity instead of just TELLING Serena and Chuck, and then make Chuck an idiot by having him team up with Louis for no logical reason. Everything was just the pits when it came to that story line - except for the final Chuck/Blair scene that broke my heart and let me pretend for a minute that it was all worth it.
So not only it was a deal with God afterall but Blair was also going to church everyday with Dan in order to find a way out of her vow?!!! Oh.My.God. This is like the most supid scenario EVER!I'm trully surprised they didn't come up with a better plot device...The only way that the above could happen is if the accident had caused Blair a serious head trauma or sth!
Of course the Chair scenes were amazing!!! And i really like the path Derena is taking.
Now about the real Charlie... I never thought we would get to see her so soon. The way Carol had spoken about her to Ivy made me think sth bad might have happened to her. But she's in f..ing Juliard. And since she has a resent photo with her mother in her wallet their relationship must be a-ok!
I love how g.g is becoming more like a character in the show and how nate is serving more purpose in recent episodes I love gossip girl dark tone as well as their light it shows the show can be complex.it's also nice to know that the show well I hope it won't act like 90210 and abandoned the parents lily and Rufus rock
This episode was the worst episode ever! Blair going to church? OH COME ON!!
As for the Serena & Dan thing... It also makes sense that they all bought it: Nate doesn't really care, he's investigating the not so "accident". Louis wants Blair so bad that now, he would believe anything she says. Chuck just want to understand why she's acting so weird so he would go through any theory to understand, even one saying that B is Gossip Girl ans losing her site is the reason why she's weird --''
Nate is doing pretty good, and i'm so glad his assistant was clever enough to check the computer, it would have been so season 1 otherwise.. (i liked season 1, but i mean, for the high school thing and they are supposed to have grown...)
Waiting for the whole Charlie thing..
One of the best thing in the episode was finally hearing Kristen Bell's voice. It felt soooooooooo good!!
Yesterday I was so depressed because I couldn't watch the episode and all the tweets about it made the episode seems awful... And when I watched I was like "what's wrong with people?!" I mean, yeah, it's weird how Blair is behaving regarding Chuck but I think it's normal, it's her way of reacting to the accident and the baby thing... we all have our way of reacting. Plus, since B has always be a rational person, being that supersticious make some sense... And when something really bad happens to her, she's always in a denial. Her reaction yesterday made plenty of sense to me.
I'm glad Chuck isn't giving up. Maybe if he gets in an accident when she's at the altar, she'll realize that the universe isn't against her and Chuck. Come on Louis, "You said you will never leave me, and you seem so far away". Are you that blind? This character is sooooo annoying. I feel kinda of sorry for him!
I agree, even if I'm a chair fan, I find the episode lacked of Dair romance... =(
Very dissapointed.People believe Serena and Dan back together seriously?
Blair going to church?How bad was her hat?
Woh, damn their are a lot of haters for this episode. Sorry but this is one of my favourite episodes of all time, showcase of how smart GossipGirl can be. I totaly get that it doesn have much classic teen drama in this but that is what i love about Gossip Girl. This episodes shows how cold and complex Gossip can be. It was curve ball episode where the unexpected and the grave happens and not just bitch fights. So sorry to all the haters, but grow up, this is GG maturing and evolving.
I thought it was epic. The whole mystery theme with Nate. Nate has become interesting and somehow sexier now that someone wants him killed. On top of that, Gossip Girl texting him? Chair provided great romance and drama for the episode. It also did what a mid season premier should do: leave new things to look forward to. (Charlie Rhodes + Derena!) The writing made total sense. Dan and Blair always have rumours spread about them being in a secret relationship. It wasn't crazy that the other characters would suspect they were having an affair. Chuck and Louis were NOT allies just because they were both desperate to get through to Blair and inevitably crossed paths in the process. B lost her baby and nearly lost the love of her life. If she WASN'T acting strange about the universe, THEN I would blame the writers for making the plot unbelievable. You're upset that Chair and Dair were not successful this episode. There's nothing wrong with how the episode was written.
