That preview was less about the episode and more about us liking the people that work on GG...They're actually proud of this steaming pile of crap they call a storyline...? You know when the Big Man Upstairs is brought in as a plot device and that STILL doesn't work, you're screwed. Jesus may have "saved" Georgina but his dad sure any doing any favors for the show time around.
No offense Dair fans but this sounds like Chair ending to me...
They basically implied that we all knew they'd end up together but we just dont know how yet.
Personally, Im not on either side but I don't see Dan and Blair getting together.
Im just hoping for some coherent writing...The States doesn't grant divorces without consent? I'm Canadian so I have no idea but that seems weird with 51 states all having different rules on marriage that there isn't one that won't give Blair a divorce. Instead she has to go to the Dominican Republic or some such thing?
We spell good in Canadaland.
Thank you Dr. Holland.
I agree completely!
The fans wars are silly. They were almost this bad when there was Blair and Nate and Blair and Chuck.
I've been whining for years about Blair making up her freaking mind or being a single, powerful woman.
I've been lucky enough to find my soulmate, it ain't always easy but my feelings have been consisted. Clearly, the same can not be said of Blair.
OK, I've figured out a way to improve GG's ratings and solve all of the ship wars --
Chuck/Blair/Dan. Both Dan and Chuck have had threesomes on the show before, and in the books, both are bi. Let 'em share Blair, since apparently, neither the writers nor half of fandom cares who she loves and wants to be with. That would make both Chair and Dair fanatics happy.
(Of course, I'm kidding. But the fan wars are really silly and tiresome. No one is better or worse than another person because of the couple you ship! The fact that I prefer Chair to Dair (and others want Dair over Chair) doesn't need to be analyzed, LOL. We all just like what we like.)
wow dair is truly epic!
@Meep If the writers continue to ruin all of the relationships and characters, Chuck/Dan might be interesting, but the writers could also ruin that too as well.
I really hope they don't ruin DAIR....why can't two people be friends? If they get into a relationship there won't be anymore whitty banter or Dan being there for Blair, or Blair relying on Dan to get out of mischief. It will just be Dan struggling to hold onto Blair. If that plays out, Chuck and Dan might as well get together as endgame, bonding over their struggle to hold onto the enigma that is Blair Waldorf.
Yes. That. Which is the reason why I'm convinced they are going to Dair, b/c really, who would stupid enough as to throw something like that away?? Crazyness.
They are like butchering Dair. srsly.. it's making me a bit sick..
like, fine. I get it.. the actually natural couple will never happen.. and we will have to endure Blair and Chuck coming lovingly together in secret rooms of great parties. Fine. (this is coming btw, from a once HUGE Chair fan. They used to make me so happy.. now they just make me yawn and/or mad)
But must this Dair bashing continue? I'm mean, is it really necessary to do it so obvious? The writers dont want Dair, coz they fear the wrath of Chair fans? I get it.. but to keep downgrading the only properly built relationship is this show is just making fun of actual loyal fans of the show.. the ones that keep track and pay attention to what's going on..
I've been thinking this for a while now.. but if the show doesn't pick up, I see this few next episodes as tha last ones i'll be watching. and that is a real shame.
@Dr Holland A M/Gary Sue doesn't mean they're perfect, it's the way they're treated compared to everyone else, fans are different from the writers who can't write, so they continue this on/off crap until the series finally ends. Chuck's character has been glorified as a tragic hero, everyone else is constantly belittled for Chuck. Blair's character (esp. this season) has been reduced to a pathetic character who constantly whines/cheats with Chuck/wants to marry Louis to be a princess, in Season 4, the show portrays Chuck as some hero who saved Blair from the cartoonish villain: Charles Thorpe. That's why they devoted the midseason finale/premiere on Chuck's well-being, which wasn't really a cliffhanger since it's obvious he survived. That's why they ditched the Dan/Blair work storyline in Season 4 and went straight for the stupid Louis/Blair/Chuck triangle. It won't be long before they ruin Dan for the 'epic' Chuck/Blair where they'll spout horribly cliched lines at each other.
Well, this being the episode of titled Cross Rhodes which is based on the 2002 movie "Crossing Roads" with a coming of age flop about Britney Spear's journey to 'find themselves.' I'm starting to see a trend in this season's plot.
You have the 100th episode based on 'Gigi' but it felt more similar to the incoherent and undesirable 2003 'Gigli' movie with Ben Affleck and Jlo ending. The next episode is based on the 2010 movie "The Back Up plan" which was a formulaic non sense.
Of course, I kid... We all make judgements on characters and plots. It's about being human and flawed. Just like Dan Humphrey and Blair Waldorf.
@CrAZychicke - you and I agree. You're a Dair fan, I like Chair, but I'm not just watching for ships. I am interested in all the other storylines. But at this point, the only people keeping me watching are Georgina (and soon!!) Jack Bass.
@Anonymous - I don't know that I'd call Chuck a Gary Stu. If any character's a screenwriter's Gary Stu, it's Dan. Chuck is (just like he was in the books) the UES whipping boy. Some fans think he's the very worst and should have stayed in Paris w/ Eva, others think he's a "poor little rich boy" who was dealt an unfair hand. Chuck reminds me of some of the awful billionaire's kids who were interviewed for Jamie Johnson's documentary Born Rich. For me, it's been fascinating watching a totally amoral teenaged boy who could buy anything he wanted (except for what matters most) grow up.
I'm out if Dair happens as I like them as friends. No need to play out the oops with your male friend and then regret the oops storyline.
@Will It's no more contrived compared to the rest of this awful show.
@Iz Overreacting much? The show pretty much treats Chuck like a Gary Stu and how he's supposedly a 'dark knight', even the actor doesn't like his character anymore. All of the side characters are just used as props to glorify his character and what a poor tortured soul he is.
@anastasia Blair (especially this season) and Dan are both flawed characters.
Serena did sleep with Nate, which is why she and Blair had that fight in season 1.
Blair has no room to talk since she constantly cheated with Chuck behind Louis' back and they were engaged at that time, making it worse, especially since she only wants to be in a loveless situation to be a princess and to fulfill her ridiculous pact with God.
yes a little judgemental in season 1-4 but in season 5 not with his book
dont tell me to calm down its my opinion i dont hate DAIR ? but i hate that they make blair so weak, i am a chair shipper but i dont hate dair i think it needs to happend so that they can move on both and blair can be blair again
Ugh, I hate Ivy...
I don't understand why the writers insist on dragging this stupid storyline out for the entire season. It's so forced and ridiculous. The actress who plays her is terrible. I want her gone!
@anastasia calm down man damn
@olivia why are you so mad at a tv show character which doesn't exist in real life?
GOD NO I DON'T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT HIS BOOK!!! or him by the way.This episode probably SUCK
you thinkdan is judgemental? seriously some of these fans are worse!!
dan's a writer - of course he's a little judgemental - but he freaking loves BLAIR! I don't care what ppl say. I'm a dair shipper, and this episode looks exciting!!! Can't wait to have Ivy back - don't trust Lola/Real Charlie - Want Nivy (since my Nenny is only available in my dreams). Also where they hell did jack bass and diana disappear to - i hope they come in this episode.
Seriously just give me DAIR.. I don't care if chair will be endgame - i just want DAIR NOW!
I am so frustrated with this forced Derena -- Serena is delusional and living in her head. Can't wait for Georgina to shakes things up, and hope to see some G/Chuck..
dan is so not perfect he is so judgemental
blair and dan dont fit together end of story
they had a cute friendship that was interesting
and dan thought blair is the love of his life
forgot serena in 10 sec made a book where blair was a god
He always hated and judge on the upper east side things thats way serena and dan always broke up but if he hates that so much how can he be in love with blair who is 100 times more upper east side so maybe georgina shows a picture to S but its normal thats would be mad? Nate wasnt the love of blairs life and she hated serena for that allong time dont blame there for i would be to but if S would kiss with chuck S would be dead in 10 sec and after knowing that S still loves D she told it at the wedding it wouldnt be nice of blair if she wants to be the better person of the two just saying
Ah, forgive me for DAIR-ing to question the integrity of Dan, the peak of perfection on the Upper East Side. However does a mere mortal like Blair Waldorf deserve such a catch? Clearly if Miss Blair knows what is best for her, she will drop the robot prince fake husband and the creepy billionaire ex with a sad past, and fall into Lonely Boy's waiting arms...
Actually, Blair's lucky that such a perfect guy still likes her, with all her issues! Why can't she sees what's right in front of her! After all, he loves her so much that he helped her marry a man she didn't love! He has such a wonderful track record as a supportive boyfriend who brings out the best in his woman! He's made them all feel so secure! He never falls out of love at a moment's notice!
Let's hear it for Dan the Perfect Man!
@Saabb She has no reason to be, she slept with Nate behind Blair's back and then she led both Nate and Dan and then ended up with Ben.
@Iz Unless Dan or any other character for that matter ends up almost hitting Blair or selling her out to Jack Bass for a hotel, then the mistakes are no where near comparable.
I love IVY DICKENS too!!!
thanksss ivy is come back ! she is much better than the real charlie rhodes! :D
can't wait to see Ivy and Charlie ! :D
