Gossip Girl > Gossip Girl Review: Backup Dan the Man > Comments Page 4
I agree with the reviewer, I love how Dan and Blair found each other, in the beginning they just seemed so different and now look how they like and respect each other although Blair could be nicer to him.
Finally Blair thanked Dan for being there. She treated him so badly in the past. I liked their banter, it saved the episode for me. But Blair has gotten so unrecognizable and childish, it is hard to imagine why Dan would still be into her.
@Emily Serena is the one who alienated her since she wants everything to be about her again.
Don't you know that making up crappy excuses and spouting off horribly cliched dialogue is 'epic' love/romance? Apparently the writers think so.
@MSC, @MrsDexterhaven, @Amanda, and @Rogue Yeah, because trading Blair for a hotel to Jack Bass like a property and almost punching/humiliating Blair at the end of last season is just so saintly.
Hating on Dan so hard right now. Even if he didn't end up sending the video, he is the reason Blair is so alienated from Serena right now, and he keeps trying to make Chuck look bad in Blair's eyes.
Not that it matters, because Blair's amazing at coming up with ridiculous reasons to shoot Chuck down all on her own.
And, yeah, kick Dan in teh face. Also anyone who doesn't think Chair is endgame - you clearly are not watching nor have never watched a tv show. Get real. folks.
The episode wasn't great. DB fighting like two little girls was not amusing and Dan so sent that video and blamed Chuck. Creeper alert. Dan needs to fix his hair and jump off a bridge.
I loved Chuck and Blair but stop with the obstacles and Serena rocked
I support Dan being kicked in the face! He deserves it!
I just think Dan is so yucky. Like, he is a raging doucheball and gets away with everything. Always has. Waiting for the inevitable day when both Serena and Blair tell him to fuck off. He's a manipulative loser.
poor s poor c
the show pretty much sucks right now
i wish c and s would hook up and dair would commit suicide
What you've argued STEVE doesn't justify why you rated the episode 2 1/2!!!
At the very least it should have been 3 1/2 if not 4.
Meh. I only watched some scenes, but I really wasn't feeling most of the banter. There were a few funny moments, but it seemed like the standard "Dan being a dick to everyone but Blair" and "Blair being ridiculously shrill and increasingly stupid". If anything, this review kind of made me dislike the episode more, because it's hard to understand the excitement for something I find so... lacking. I mostly just enjoyed the Chuck/Serena scenes and the final Chuck/Blair scene, although Blair was kind of awful in that as well.
Then again, I don't enjoy love triangles, I think they ruin the person in the middle (already happening for most of the season, unfortunately), plus I'm getting tired of watching Chuck and Serena suffer just so Dan and Blair can share 10 scenes an episode. So I guess I should probably just skip these reviews for awhile...
Dair was absolutely AMAZING in this episode! I am was so glad that Blair was able to properly thank Dan for all the things he has done for her in the past few months! He needed to hear them. I do have a BIG problem with the fact that Dan might have been the one to submit that video of Blair to GG. That really seams out of character for him, but overall , minus the repetitive Chair scenes, the episode was great, the Dair writing was great, and Penn and Leighton obviously have chemistry!
PART 2 G ws really on-point, I didnt believe her 2b obvious in hw she ws gonna xtract da truth outta Dorota. I would agree wit u in terms of hw she jus left da Empire bt she wasnt amateur abt da way she went abt it. It ws actually quite clever tht she locked D ina closet knowin C & S would lead her str8 2 B.
I would agree wit ur point abt Dair fleeing JFK. I2 actually wanted dem 2 gt out of NY, a perfect opportunity 4 more Dair banter- A fair point I agree. The fact tht dey hit da reset button keepin the drama in the UES was frustratin but tht didnt mean da DAIR banter stopped. The scene inda hotel jus showed hw much chem dey hav & im sure it wont just b erased by da writers.
On da other hand, L. is a major villain nw & da reset button of B goin bck 2 him jus setup da rest of da season in her struggle 2 gt away frm an empty-shell marriage. I thought tht plot ws plausible.
There u hav it, my thoughts on y I believe u reviewed da episode 2 harshly
URE A DOWNRIGHT FOOL STEVE! Normally I find ur reviews 2b a gr8 read, fair 2da episode, bt I believe ure wrong!
It was 1 of da best episodes of da season & here ur criticisin minor points. Seriously?!
Sure, perhaps da dowry ws used as a plot device 2 keep CHAIR apart, bt this things a marathon. Safran says dey dnt hav any idea whos 2b endgame. If chair got bck 2gether, da writin team would only split thm up, coz its still a journey & there r ALWAYS obstacles 2 any r.ship thts life. I actually thought B's reasonin abt C payin da dowry ws reasonable & shes right. C payn off da dowry jus 2 gt her bck won’t mak dem equals it would jus mak her his property again, just lik hw he sold her 4a hotel. A r.ship cnt strive lik that. C hurt B mny times by explicitly revealin a power imbalance btween dem, so shes ryt 2 wanna do it by hrself- thats female empowerment!
@Vanillalatte And it will be worse if it gets another season of that.
I also agree with the writers, and that they are totally badgering with the whole scene with chuck wanting to pay off the Grimaldi's. But maybe they have a plan on how Blair is going to get out of the situation..lets hope so.
loved the blowup scenes when Blair got all excited and mad a couple times in airport, and when she saw Louis talking on the tv..
Will be interesting to see how everyone reacts if Dan was really the one who sent the video of CHair on wedding day.
As Georgina, i think its kind of lame that she just took over GG. As it makes it seem the big moment in the 100th was for nothing. I think the biggest shocker, was how evil Louis actually is. Looking forward to finding out if Louis is gone for good..and how they play that out.
The whole nate/charlie/ivy situation, and of course chair
This was a really funny, refreshing, fun episode. But was really disappointed at the end when Blair went with Louis...but I guess they need to make it realistic enough. But still!!! argg. Perhaps there is some crazy twist in the next episode. I am really hating Louis, he is a huge jerk! boo him
I think its sad, how Blair has been dreaming this dream wedding her whole life, and to be let down with the prince being a total jerk at the end..you gotta wonder if they were scheming the whole time she was to be married to him. And I think its sad, as I totally felt for Blair, and Leighton plays so well..it just looks like she is horribly sad when she tells everyone in ep 100 that she is going thru with. "Serena will you tell everyone im ready to start" she just seemed defeated.
Loved the airport, and whole hotel fight scene. It was cute when they made up in the end. I really love Dair as friends, not so sure about love interest there..Im all CHAIR!!!
I loved dair scenes...GO DAIR
I think Gossip Girl should be renamed Bait and Switch.
They should just start titling all of the episodes "Here is the next stupid reason to keep Chuck and Blair apart."
That's all I have to say.
@Emily You can tell they're really phoning it in, all of them seem to want out and I don't blame them.
@candb No, Dan pretty much rejected Vanessa, they're not even friends anymore and everyone pretty much hates her.
Chuck needs a plot outside of pursuing Blair! I don't care if it's a backslide into strippers and booze or a real follow through of him finding himself or yea I agree, even another girl! Same thing for Serena except at least she works at The Spectator. Maybe Serena and Chuck will be there for each other more. I can't even imagine how bored Blake and Ed must be.
I felt really bad for Serena in this episode, I was proud of her for sticking up for herself...I think Chuck needs to back off and let Blair come to him when she's ready, so the poor thing doesn't keep getting rejected...Dan can go find Vanessa in Spain or whereever she is for all I care
I was also hoping that the writers would introduce some other storyline for Chuck, maybe a girl even, but this episode made it cleat that Chuck will be fighting for Blair for the rest of the season and I don't see the point. She's just making up ridiculous excuses as to why they can't be together. She was fine with marrying a man she didn't love for a tiara and now she wants her and Chuck to be "equals"? I wish Chuck would finally call her out on it and demand for a proper explanation and then preferably move on, but I see that he and Serena are stuck with pining after Dan and Blair.
I'm pretty excited for the "Dan is pro-scheming when he can get the girl" storyline though. The way he lied to Serena on the phone, sending that gg blast and blaming it on Chuck. Yeah, Dan is true Upper East Sider now! I'll be dissappointed if the writers don't follow that storyline since that could be interesting.
