Gossip Girl > Gossip Girl Round Table: "The End of the Affair" > Comments Page 2
I' m tired of my favorite couple suffering through such ridiculous story lines. Ed and Leighton were amazing the other night though ...and how gorgeous is Nate? More close ups please...
after all Blair drama, Nate storyline is so refreshing (and i enjoy watching him in every scene so so so much
I think that Blair was lying when she told people her reason for not being with Chuck was because of her pact with God.
I think she found out that the car accident wasn't a car accident, and she thought Luis had caused it (she seemed scared with him in that last scene). She told Dan that it wasn't an accident, and that's the big secret he's having to keep from people.
But it will come out now that Nate finds out that the hit was really for him, which means that Blair is free to love Chuck, because she no longer needs to fear his death if she goes off with him.
Even Cecily von Ziegesar critized the pact with God thing in a Tweet after the episode
I am honestly disappointed with the way story turned out. And not just because i am a Chair shipper. I remember the time when their relationship or lack of it meant something. This pact with God Blair made is not something you can easily fit into GG world. I think i would have better chance swallowing this "his life depended on me" if there was Jack ( like the only living relative ) and a possible transfusion, transplantation etc. that came with some strings attached. You know, keeping Chuck alive only to make his life miserable. Not something we haven't seen already. Or even the "God deal" but done a little deeper. Like a serious PTS with some paranoia and stuff. At this point i really have no idea where the story will leave us... And i am not saying that as a good thing. I suggest that writers visit FanFiction page. There are far better plots. I have a feeling this one was written in a matter of seconds on a toilet break. :(
I'm a catholic and by no means do I find the faith part if this ridiculous. Everyone's right to believe in a religion or not to believe should be respected. What I have a problem with is Blair's reasoning. How could she even think God would want her to marry another man she doesn't love, and would kill off her true love if she doesn't? Mybe I'd understand not seeing Chuck anymore if she was already married to Louis, but here all she has to do is break off the engagement! Even if she thinks she can't be with chuck because she would be 'punished' she could at least let Louis go and be on her own. I actually think that would be more reasonable rather than vowing at your wedding what you know to be untrue! What happened to strong Queen B?
Blair doesn't even treat Dan like a friend unless she needs a shoulder to cry on or is out of tampons, then it's back to "we're not friends, Humphrey". That shït wouldn't fly with me or any self-respecting human.
Guys, please start answer quote the question!!! You have been all these season quoting the all conversation and yours job it´s find a qoute. And the meaning of this round table is losing it
Personally I understand why Chuck would humiliate her, he nearly died after she confessed undying love for him, he wakes up to find out she no longer can be with him and is avoiding him not even giving him a reason (because it's so absurd!). I'd be a little confused and pi***d off too!
He deserves better...
And I just don't care about the prince

I dont know why almost everyone complains.It is possible that there would be not another season of Gossip girl - is that what we want? They are not sure yet and when we complain that is not helping. I like this show and I hope it continues! I completly understad why Blair now believes in God. She survived bad car accident, she could have died, Chuck could have died, and tragically- she lost her baby. I understand how she fells and why she is now more religios. When this would not change her, than I would be surprised, than it would be unbelievable and strange.
I definitely felt like this episode was a bigger letdown for CB, but that's probably because I AM a CB fan, lol. it just feels so unfair that Chuck is finally in the right place to win Blair back after almost 2 seasons of non-stop angst, and now she's not going to be with him because she thinks she owes it to GOD?
i don't know why everyone says that this episode has been the worst. i don't think it was that horrible. it made me cry
as for the religious thing, don't you realise that blair has had an accident?! i would also be frightened. she must think that a miracle or something happened. in fact,it wouldn't make sense if she hadn't reacted. the problems that people have after an accident are psychological rather than physical
i loved derena (!!!), chair (love them, they must be together)and dair (i like them as friends. loved how dan protects her)
nate has a good storyline!!! not involving old women!!!
gg has to be revealed in the end of the serie...
Worst episode of GG... no wait, it has the other 11 episodes of this season to compete with, mainly the mid-season finale. NOTHING made sense...
Baby - gone and forgotten... since 10 episodes ago.
Pact - unrealistic.
Twice mentioned quote - cheesy and feels like she's cheating since she loves someone other than Louis.
OH WAIT!!! Blair CHEATED on Louis and conveniently forgot to mention that...
This show needs to go. Unless Blair is sent to a real nunnery, it really needs to stop running on TV.
GG used to be about glamour and making mistakes that can be fixed. But now that they've stepped on territories like marriage, pregnancy, etc, it needs to either be written better or just be discontinued.
Oh, and who else thinks Diana was the secret donator of the 'blood from a family member' that was very briefly but tellingly mentioned?
One thing that stuck out for me during this episode, as frustrating as it was, is how depressed Blair was (thank you, Leighton, for your acting skills). She made me want to cry the whole episode, especially the scene in her wedding dress. I have to disagree that the whole baby loss is being brushed over because I thought that had a LOT to do with what's going on with Blair and how hopeless she seemed. It can't all be about Chuck. Of course, I could just be giving the writers way too much credit.
I am a huge DAIR fan, but at this point I'd rather see her with Chuck then with Louis. He went from sweetest prince in the world to passive aggressive bitch. How willing he was to hurt Blair publicly after she just lost her baby made me want to kill him. Chuck too, come to think of it. Nix my previous comment. This is why she needs to be with Dan, the one who wouldn't stab her in the back as soon as things don't go his way.
SERIOUSLY CHAIR IS THE BEST LOVE STORY OF ALL TIME---SO LET'S KEEP IT THAT WAY! BACK TO THE LOVE PEOPLE! SOME OF THE VERY BEST EPISODES EVER WAS WHEN THEY WERE TOGETHER AND JUST BICKERING--IT WAS ADORABLE ( REMEMBER WHEN HE CAME HOME TO HER IN HIS BED AND HE JUST HELD ONTO HER? ITS POSSIBLE FOR THEM TO BE TOGETHER AND HAVE ROUGH PATCHES! WHY IS IT TOGETHER OR NOT!!! THERE'S OTHER WAYS TO KEEP THEIR STORY FRESH! CHAIR FAN FOR LIFE!!!!!
DAN IS A GOOD COMIC RELIEF BUT NO WAY- SHE WOULD DEF NEVER BE HER HIGHNESS QUEEN B WITH DAN ON HER ARM. KEEP CHARACTERS CORE ATTRIBUTES ALIVE WRITERS!
Actually, after the accident happened and before i watched the trailer i thought that maybe Blair due to major nervous breakdown blamed Chuck and herself for the loss of her baby. Which would still be kind of irrational but not so much for a mourning mother. It's so simple and so much more logical than having Blair spending her days praying and consulting priests ( i mean... what's next...maybe going to a witch or a tarrot reader?!!!)
Almost this whole episode was cringe worthy to me.
Blair is not being Queen B. Torturing Louis, Dan and Chuck. Doesn't she think it's worse to actually marry Louis, to vow to love, when she will pine for Chuck. Breaking off engagement-better option!
I feel bad for Louis, who has a right to be suspicous. You were running away with your ex lover and the guy still takes you back? Is he some kind of saint? How much more can you subject him to?
I was hoping it would turn out that Louis was blackmailing Blair to go through with the wedding. At least that would justify the way Blair has been treating him, be more believable, and allow Blair to come back with a scheme of her own. Leaving him at the altar over something she has known from the moment she met him is just cruel...
She could even stay away from Chuck over misplaced guilt about losing the baby. Blaming them both and feeling bad for Louis, who is devestated, so going ahead with the wedding. Something, anything??
From the first scene of this episode I thought it had to be some kind of dream, it just felt so unnatural, even Chuck seemed to be phoning it in, in the beginning. Perhaps Blair and Chuck were unconscious from the accident and imagining it all...I did hope, a hope which turned out to be false, apparently it's all real...
The line Blair uttered is poetic, and her scene with Chuck was acted as best they could, but the writing has been really...well bad. Gossip Girl has always been ridiculous in a funny sort of way sometimes, in my opinion, but this??? I just wish the writers would go watch season 1 and 2 and relearn how to write.
Rant over lol.
I did enjoy the Vera wang gown though, and the Dair friendship scenes, though a bit drawn out, were sweet. Nate appears to be the only one who's actually doing something with his life, rather ironic lol. Oh yeah and the lack of Chivvy was a plus for me!
I think Gossip Girl took the "End of the Affair" reference a little too far. I mean... seriously?
Of course, in the film (The End of the Affair), it made sense because the whole story line was built on it But for Gossip Girl? It's too much and too dark. It was like a lame Scary Movie attempt.
You guys have to watch The End of the Affair to understand me. (Starring Ralph Fiennes and Julianne Moore)
Q1: Definately Blair's '' Just because we can't be together it doesn't mean i don't love you''... You're killing him girl!
Q2: Chair...obviously! Seriously the last scene broke my heart! Seeing Chuck feeling relieved in the start when Blair entered the appartment and then totally confused and shattered was maybe one of the most cruel scenes in GG!
Q3: The deal with God of course since it was obvious from the beginning that the pregnancy wouldn't be dealt as a serious aspect of Blair's life. But this deal...omg...Just another one of Saphran's sadistic ways of torturing the Chair fans.
Q4:Charlie! I thought sth horrible had happened to her!
Q5:Tripp! His carreer and marriage are going down the hill and he needs hid grandpa's support!
Q7:Yes...I believe she'll be Nate's new romanticc interest!
Some close ups were uncomfortable, specially one with Louis in his scene with Chuck and Serena in the Spectator hallway, where it looked like he was staring directly at the camera. Jack and Diana MIA in this episode was another plot hole. Nate's assistant, who looked better in her first scene than in the party, was refreshing to watch. GG was missed as narrator. The best scene hands down is the final one between Chuck and Blair, where the actors managed to said all that with voices and facial expressions incredibly real considering how ridiculous the storyline sounds.
Post traumatic stress disorder regarding the misscarriage might explain why Blair is clinging to the idea that God accepted her offer of such a deal to keep Chuck alive, but if that's the case the show is poorly reflecting that.
In terms of the episode, I found Nate and Serena adorable, Serena really was the most in character although I found Nate, Dan and Chuck delivered their lines as always, which is conforting. It wasn't that Blair said her lines badly, but the things coming out of her mouth were so ludicrous that it's hard to take her seriously. Rufus and Lily were ok. The real Charlie has more physical resemblance with Serena than the fake one. Like some have said, Dorota and Blair's parents abscense in flashbacks and the episode was a low point. Mentions of Jenny and Eric were appreciated. The priest failed big time in helping Blair or seem logical, seemed to me he was trying to wash his hands in all this mess. The opening scene, including its dialogue, was a rip off of the original movie the episode is based.
Denial! That is where I am right now. I am busy sitting on my happy Chair in pink cloud land where Blair does not behave like a zombified fraction of the Blair we all know and love. It is calm here, and I can pretend that the writers of GOSSIP GIRL in some desperate bid to avoid actually PLOTTING the show are not going to send Blair on a voyage of exploration to Catholicland. (Catholicland is a strange place where 21st century writers of little imagination go when they are updating their resumes.)
ARE YOU FREAKIN' KIDDING ME!!!! Lord knows GG is not Truffaut, but a little effort wouldn't hurt!
