Gossip Girl > Gossip Girl to End With a "Gasp" Monday > Comments Page 2
Am I the only viewer who remembers that Blair slept with Jack in Season 2 - over a year before the hotel trade debacle?
It doesn't make what Chuck did right. At all. But I never, ever hear anyone bringing that up. It's like some people believe that Blair hasn't always been a gray character. Elizabeth Bennet she is not.
I heard from people it's going to be gossip girl who is getting revealed so..
Hope Georgina has more then a camo.
Please let it not be a anticlimax.
Dan and Blair to wed? please not.
@sweet_vf, OMG! That had never crossed my mind and it actually makes some sense! I mean...It would explain why Louis is taking all this s....t from Blair without saying a word and why Father Cavallia is trying to stop the wedding. Louis is desperate to get married so that he can have the throne but Father Cavallia won't allow the love of his life to marry sb else! Perfection!
*they like characters that are "no hereos, no villains".
Some people here need to read the interview that the show gave to Rolling Stones magazine in April 2009. In it the shows producers's (in those days Savage and Schwartz) left very clear that it has never been their intention to make this show an "after school special" kind of show. They like characters that are not "no heroes, no villains". Even though I dissaprove Schwartz and Savage as much as I dissaprove Safran, I cannot help but agree with this. Anybody who watches this show looking for a role model or with the idea that this show should have characters who are role modes is watching the wrong show, and should go looking for another show, more of the "7th Heaven" type. This show never intended to give moral lessons, not even when it was in its prime and on top of its game like when that interview came out and they were in the RS cover.
"Louis gets to his room, and finds Father Canrnavalia (or whatever his name is) waiting for him: they kiss and hug and say: 'Finally, it's over'"
"are saying that chuck is not a good match for blair? do u only pay attention to the bad chair scenes and not the good? chuck and blair are true love they make sacrifices for each other."
It's not that I only see the bad parts. I used to be a Chair fan. But the bad parts were so big that they completely killed this couple for me. I guess, what I'm saying really goes beyond Blair's romantic endeavors. It's about the writers taking responsibility for the type of shit they write and knowing when to let go, which I find the writers often don't do. Instead they destroy the couple and then continue to justify its existence on the bubbly premise of some epic love...except they got nothing to substantiate it with because the characters' actions can be seen as anything but love. That's why I don't ship Chair. And if Dair are treated the same way, I wouldn't ship them either.
I think that everyone reads different things into stories and looks at characters in a different way. I cannot be convinced that the friendship that Blair and Dan have is comparable to the love that Darcy and Elizabeth share. So we can both agree that we disagree.
It would be totally okay for you to hate Chair. Everyone is entitled to have their own opinion. As for my part I've enjoyed reading your comments and dicussing our views. Thank you for that! :-)
Am I the only one who doesn't want to find out who Gossip Girl is just yet? I would be quite happy to wait for that revelation until the bitter end.
@ilovechair. I guess there are different interpretations of literature. Having read P&P countless times I never got the attraction between the two at the outset. You can comment that someone is handsome but that does not necessarily indicate attraction. Austen was trying to illustrate the damage of only seeing something or someone at face value. At least we can agree that Jane was dull :-)
And I don't hate Chair in case you're wondering - I guess I'm just a little bored with all the back and forth.
I can't believe how these discussions always turn into CHAIR vs. DAIR. DAIR people need to remember that it is a TV series and don't think for one minute if DAIR does happen, that hurtful things won't happen between the characters. Since you have not seen what a relationship between DAIR would look like, you are comparing apples to oranges comparing DAIR and CHAIR....but carry on.
@LJ thinking exactly the same thing... wouldn't be surprised if we catch a glimpse of Kristen Bell in this one
What if this episode revealed who Gossip Girl actually was?? Wonder if that is even possible in order for the show to continue?
Darcy is in my mind proud of his family and his status. When he proposed to her he told her that he fought against his feelings because marrying her would be degrading to him because of her inferior family. He later overcomes that through his love for Lizzie.In my opinion Dan is not less worthy of Blair. But like you wrote Blair is a spoilt brat and status is very important to her. She dated Nate, Chuck and now she dates a prince. So to Blair it is important to have a relationship with a person who has either the same status that she has or a higher status. In addition I don't think that Dan would enjoy the UES lifestyle like Blair does. Even in the last episode he complained how expensive the coffee is. And Blair does enjoy her luxurious lifestyle.
@Lisie Well, I guess everybody has their own opinion on books and characters. When Lizzie meets Darcy for the first time everybody says that he's handsome. Elizabeth always speaks her mind, so she would have contradicted that if she didn't think that he is attractive. He refuses to dance with Lizzie and from that moment on she is determined not to like him and refuses to dance with him at the next dance. That's a very strong reaction. So in my mind she did feel an initial attraction towards him but that turned into disdain because he offended her. He on the other hand wasn't really paying attention to her on their first meeting. But on the next dance when he looked at her properly so that he could affirm his critical opinion he found himself feeling attracted to her because of her eyes and her wit. So in my mind there was an initial attraction, a spark between them. Besides both characters later in the book can't recall the exact moment they fell in love with each other.
@raven it was unhealthy in the past because they were too immature and need to grow first. chuck and blair need to grow and become better people before ever getting back together.
They also sacrifice each other! I don't think their relationship is healthy at all. For either of them.
@Aint born typical
are saying that chuck is not a good match for blair? do u only pay attention to the bad chair scenes and not the good? chuck and blair are true love they make sacrifices for each other.
Lizzie and Darcy aren't lovers/attracted at the start. He claims she is 'tolerable' and she comments on how predisposed he is to be displeased with the society he finds in Hertfordshire. He warms to her first of all but she is distracted by Wickham (another typical bad boy!). Darcy was not brought up to be proud etc. It is mentioned alot in the book about how good his father was and what a good brother, friend and master he is. Both of them fundamentally misunderstand each other and their relationship builds once they come to realise their misconceptions. I don't believe Blair would be giving up her status. After all she's Blair Waldorf and strong in her own right. Just because Dan's family aren't minted doesn't make him any less worthy of her!
@Ain't born typical
Well, like I said it's different for everyone. I enjoy Ed and Leighton interact and share the unique chemistry that they have. In my opinion love can be as individual as the two people who share that feeling, so love can also be evil, destructive etc. And I for my part enjoy reading books on characters who have a completely different life than I have and who look at the world differently than I do. For me it's the only way to broaden my horizon.I also enjoy watching Dexter but does that mean that I would want a serial killer in real life to do what Dexter does? No, but it is just a tv show. So I do differentiate between reality and fiction. Besides Chair had also had their good moments, it wasn't just Chuck treating Blair badly;-) I'm just curious but which relationship do you like on gg?
Dan and Blair like Lizzie and Darcy share a connection on the intellectual level but where is the spark, the chemistry that Darcy and Lizzie despite their animosity share? That’s why they are incomparable in my mind because Dan and Blair are just friends and Lizzie and Darcy are lovers even from the beginning on. Even in the beginning it’s not just one sided with Darcy and Lizzie. But maybe I’m just biased and that’s why I don’t see it the way you do;-)
@Lisie In my mind Blair Waldorf would never want to give up the status that she has. She enjoys the Upper East Side lifestyle and she enjoys to look down at people. That’s I think also one of the reasons why she wants to marry Louis. And that’s also a reason why she will never see Dan as her equal. Darcy on the other hand was brought up to be haughty and proud beacuse of his status but through his love for Lizzie he overcomes this. And from the beginning Darcy sees Lizzie as his equal.So the writers can let Blair change but in my opinion it would be ooc for her. Besides there has been an initial attraction between Lizzie and Darcy, which I didn’t see between Dan and Blair. Both Darcy and Lizzie felt attracted towards each other and they maybe would have gotten together sooner if Darcy hadn’t offended Lizzie in the beginning.
Blair and Chuck are equals and if they both don't let their dark sides take over their relationship could work.
But you see, it doesn't quite fit, does it? Chuck did let his dark side take over the relationship more than once. And sometimes Blair too. I'm not saying it's bad television or bad drama. What I'm saying is that I find it fundamentally wrong to call what Chuck and Blair have "love" either in real life or anywhere. Art is about expression of something that is rooted in reality. You can't really separate the two so much as to say I can accept it in a TV show but not accept it in real life. At least I can't. I can appreciate the drama. I can appreciate the conflict. And I can even appreciate the ridiculous plot lines. What I can't accept is saying love is what Chuck and Blair share. Because love can't be this evil. It just can't be. Call me an old fashioned romantic.
@Aint Born Typical
In my opinion not only good-hearted people can find great love but also people who are evil can find someone who will love him or her despite or because of the dark facets of their personality. Because love isn't something that you can earn, it's a gift. That's the reason why I compared Chuck and Blair to Catherine and Heathcliff. Their only redeemable quality is the great love that they feel for each other. But Chuck and Blair should not be taken as a role model for relationships. I differentiate between reality and fiction. On tv I don't want to watch the ideal relationship, then I would have to watch shows like 7th Heaven and that would be boring;-) But I guess it’s different for everyone.
