Gossip Girl > Gossip Girl Review: Backup Dan the Man > Comments Page 3
How can anyone still be rooting for the godawful mess that is Chair? I like both Chuck and Blair but it's been done to death. For me it was finished at the last Valentines Day episode with Blair overhearing Chuck telling Raina his feelings for her and seeing Blair just crushed. The last ep of S4 should have been them properly letting go.
@ sanaa **waiting for the chairy tale**: That's a little unfair, isn't it? Especially from a Chair fan? People can change I believe and I hope that Dan will see the error of his behaviour. Still, what he's done isn't unforgivable. I actually think it will give him a nice edge.
@ Jonas: Dan IS a douche towards everyone except Blair. I'm not even talking about this episode since it's true that Serena used this as an opportunity to make it all about her. But right now Dan is condescending towards everyone and is always quick to pass judgment and I hope that changes someday. And bashing Chuck in Dan's defense isn't an argument. Chuck's been the good guy this season and this time he is the bigger man here. People can change, damnit!
I see that both fandoms now watch the series selectivly. Dair fans refuse to acknowledge that Chuck has changed, while Chair fans play up Dan's character flaws. They both have their faults and strengths, you know?
@sanaa **waiting for the chairy tale** "dan was the biggest douche ever in this episode" And that comes from you that thinks (I presume) "Chuck is so dreamy, they are meant to be and they are endgame epicness" (with a girly voice) Even if he did send that video, he is twice the man Chuck will ever be. About Serena, he DON'T love her and why sholud he have told her that he was with Blair.... wasn't it Serena that told Chuck about that "god pact"? And Blair could have grabbed Serena before she picked up that phone to call Dan.
@MrsMorgan This ridiculous relationship shouldn't have happened in the 1st place. There was no valid reason why either 1 of them should've been married.
Blair already showed her true color in Paris, Louis should've never even come to New York.
@sanaa **waiting for the chairy tale** Serena is the 1 pursuing Dan, Blair went to Dan when Serena was right there at the reception. Serena is just upset because she's not the center of attention.
Serena and Blair are terrible friends, they're always lying/backstabbing each other which is why they're always fighting each other for 5 season now.
Blair is constantly making up excuses, it's her own fault she's in this mess. She chose to be in a loveless marriage so she can be princess, not to love Louis, she's been cheating and lying behind her fiancee's back all this time.
dan was the biggest douche ever in this episode. he sends out the video of chuck and blair in the hopes that louis and blair won't get married and blair will forever be mad at chuck. then he doesn't tell SERENA of all people. he's always undermining their friendship, he just can't accept that serena is a lot more important to blair than he is, no matter how much he kisses up to her. S was right: dan wants to keep blair all to himself. and he knows that that's only possible with serena and chuck out of the picture. it's just so creepy and so wrong.
and i vote the writers just stop coming up with idiotic reasons to keep chuck and blair apart and instead make blair's line "sorry chuck, we can't be together because it's not the season finale yet". it would make a hell of a lot more sense than a dowry.
I would have liked to see Dair get out of the country to annul the marriage, and not have this whole dowry thing come up. The dowry is a ridiculous plot device. Don't you think Blair would have thought about this whole "my mother and i will go broke if i annul this marriage" thing BEFORE the trip to the airport? And why wouldn't she call Dorota ahead of time, like while they were in the car? I get she was desperate, but you'd think Blair would have this all organized. She WAS about to go on her honeymoon after the wedding, so she should have been packed with a passport ready to go...
However, going back to the fundamental problem here, I still don't get why Louis even married her. You'd think he would look worse and the family would be more embarrassed because he married a woman who professed her love for another man right before the wedding... he would look worse to me marrying her than leaving her at the alter and retaining his dignity...
@LelaRose Blair chose to marry him after cheating/lying behind his back and she only wanted to be a princess, not love. She deserves to face the consequences for her actions.
Louis isn't really locking her away, he just wants her to stay at his side for show and Blair chose to comply.
@Marian and @Meep Dawson's Creek had better writing than Gossip Girl, the Gossip Girl writers aren't capable of that so that's why they're in this mess.
@Kay Serena has been nothing but selfish because the attention isn't on her and there aren't guys throwing themselves at her like they did in the past.
I hate Blair & Dan together. I'm over the love triangle. Serena is my favorite character and I feel like she's been treated like crap for to long. I can't wait to see what happens with Nate and the real Charlie. I'm excited to see how that plays out. As for Blair and Louis, I kind of seen that coming. You can only mess with someone for so long until they've had it. I hope chuck will come to his senses soon too. Maybe the writers should give him another long term girl in his life.
Disclaimer: This all happened off-screen, so it's pointless to speculate. The director obviously wants us to think Dan sent the video, but since I'm desperate to believe otherwise, here are some alternatives:
Rufus: He was actually in the same room with Chuck after Georgina handed off the camera.
Nate: As the only one of the crew never to have sent a blast, he could be the "least likely" choice GG's commentary was referring to.
Louis' Mom/Sister: Could be that it was all an elaborate plot to swindle the Waldorfs out of their fortune. It's not unheard of for royalty to go broke.
Eleanor: No idea how she could have discovered the video, but after bringing in Chuck, it was evident she would have done anything to stop the farce of a wedding.
Georgina: She can't live up to Gossip Girl's chaos for chaos' sake due to her vested interest in ruining the UES gang's lives, so she could have sent the video to pit them against each other.
Also if Louis was going to lock her away, then why would she be free to attend a valentine's day party in New York with the man she ran off with after her wedding and the man she was publicly caught confessing her eternal love too?
, Blair is MARRIED to some psychotic royalty...Seriously, if I were from Monaco I'd be pissed that my country's leaders were being dragged in the mud. Even if Sophie and Louis aren't real, they've made references to the real royals. Blair is married to some evil prince while being in love with Chuck, although she keeps coming up with bullshit reasons for not being with him and running off with Dan. It would take a simpleton not to know that he's in love with her and I didn't think Blair was a simpleton.
Blair, pick Dan or Chuck, this is nonsense.
I have to agree with what a lot of people are saying...
Blair, pick someone. I'm tired of all these love triangles. The original Nate and Chuck one made sense. Nate was her long time boyfriend while Chuck was an unexpected passion. Then Blair dated Marcus to get back at Chuck for hurting her, there was no contest there, it was about revenge. Same with Carter. Going back to Nate made no sense to me the time but at least they explained that Blair always wanted to to prom with him. The picture perfect evening. Now its messed up
You never know it might end up like dawson's creek blair and dan being together like joey chose pacey lol
So Dan is the one who sent the video??? Wow didn't really see that coming.
Nate and the new girl...boring.
I love the Chair scene. It was definitely the best one of the night for me.
Overall this episode was bad because it:
-shows Louis and his freaking family will stay around longer
-Chair will not be getting together anytime soon
-Dair is yet be to over and done with.
No wonder why this episode was bad, it was mostly about Blair and Louis, had more Dair scenes, and just not enough of Chair in general.
This episode was funny, witty and entertaining for the most part.
Where are Blair's father (s) and Roman??? Shouldn't the writers should have at least say something about them???
This episode in many ways did not really connect for me. Yeah it was funny, but considering how the 100th episode ended I thought it would be more appropriate that this episode was more dramatic than comical. I do enjoy Blair in regurlar clothings.
For a bride who wants to leave the country as soon as possible, it makes no sense that Blair walked into the airport in her wedding gown and tiara. Dan should have gone to buy her clothes at least and let her change. They were in the airport for the longest time before she even decided to buy clothes.
No DS! B and C have to be together but I love DB too
I definitely agree with this review. Chair is just being jerked around at this point, it makes absolutely NO SENSE how Blair and Chuck keep expressing their love for each other but yet Chuck is repeatedly rejected by Blair for reasons that make the show seem as if a 10 year old is writing it.
The only reason why GG writers are doing this is because who Blair ends up with is the major storyline on the show right now. But the point is, GG writers, you can only drag out a love triangle for so long! It's become ridiculous now - at this point I don't care WHO Blair ends up with, as long as she picks either Dan or Chuck and stops tormenting us each episode. GG needs to come up with more storylines and stop relying on Blair's love life as the only plot of the show. We're begging you, GG writers.
To all: I still think Dan sent that video. If there is a twist and he didn't, it's allright, but right now I stand by it. And by CB and DS.
Yeah, none of that actually contradicts anything I said about Dan though...
@Maribells Serena had her chance when she couldn't decide between Nate and Dan before she ended with Ben. Vanessa pretty much screwed everyone over and the writers basically gave up on trying to make her likable and had her screw Dan over with the book and she was also partly responsible for the whole Serena/Juliet thing with Jenny.
I dunno, when you really think about it, Dan has had this tendency for awhile. He was very dismissive of Vanessa in S1 in favor of Serena ("you told me you loved me", "love...d"), then kind of crapped on Serena in favor of Amanda/Ms. Carr/whoever in S2, cheated on Vanessa with Serena in S3 and then treated Vanessa like crap some more in S4, and now he's acting like he never even loved Serena. So even though he has this "nice guy" image, he has a bad habit of being kind of awful towards his exes.
So yeah, for the sake of Blair and Dan's friendship, it's probably best if they don't ever date, because it would inevitably end the same way. I'd actually love it if Blair were the one to point this out to him, on Serena's behalf.
@ Maribells: The "Dan is a dick to everyone but Blair" bothers me enormously. Wasn't he a nice guy a long, long time ago? Some fans say that Dan is the perfect guy and boyfriend, but I wouldn't recommend him to any girl. I wouldn't want a person in my life who treats my friends terribly, no matter how nice she/he is to me. I hope that is addressed in the series.
Dan may not have sent the video but he knows who did and he still lied and tried to blame Chuck. Writers are on the path to destroy Dan's character.
SSo glad - no Chuck and Blair romance for a while, it got so old. So boring.
