I felt so bad for Dan at the start of this dialogue and then by the end...whoppeee!
Blair: Claire would never kiss Dylan passionately. Ever. If she had to kiss him at all it would be perfunctory. Like shaking someone’s hand or petting a dog. (Dan's exasperated expression here is très adorable! Well done Penn!)
Lola: I…I don’t understand…?
Dan: That’s because you’re listening to the ramblings of a deranged person. Blair, go home! (Lol I love the playful banter that's always existed between Blair and Dan)
Blair: A Claire Dylan kiss would mean nothing. Do you mind if I show her? (We get it Blair, you want some Lonely Boy lovin' right about now! Can't say we blame you, he's yum!)
Dan: Actually, I do.
Blair: It should look like this.
And then Again, an EPIC Dair kiss. Swooooooooooooonworthy!
Oh Dair how do I love thee, let me count the ways...I couldn't help but watch this episode multiple times...Leighton and Penn have done such a fantastic job...and Leighton tonight was spectacular. She really needs to win a bunch of awards. Given the constraints with which they have to work (i.e. no discernible clarity regarding their relationship), Penn and Leighton have made Dair so darn romantic and adorable and believable. Kudos to them!
I love the way they did this:
Blair: I came to see you today to prove that I am not in denial. One of my specialties - warped logic.
Dan: It is a unique skill you have
Blair: It’s awful!
Dan: No, it’s not awful, it’s you. It couldn’t be awful (holds her hands...soooo sweet and tender)
Blair: Humphrey…(I LOVE the way she says this, with a little catch in her voice...surprised at the strength of her feelings for Dan...well done Leighton)
@Ace omg I could not help but chuckle at the fable you narrated. Not sure if you're a fellow Dair-er but regardless that was a good input. Part of me is sad that they made Chuck such a loser, uni-dimensional character and part of me is exultant yAAy we've seen enough of Chuck shining and Dan not getting any Blair love, so let's have a reversal now.
Lola and Ivy's face-off was the only interesting part of tonight's episode. The rest was just......ugh!
An really strong episode!
Blair! Fighting her feelings, and being all I don't care for him we are just friends really made episode! Serena stepping down was real sweet! But why make such a big buzz and than just let it go! Only Bad part of the episode!
Chuck! Who doesn't love Psycho Chuck and stepping his game up to take down Dan was nice and refreshing! Dan become a Major point at the UES when Mr.Chuck wants to take him down! XD
The CECE story finally is getting a conclusion! And sweet little Ivy is in trouble! Oh Sweat Lola! Go do Nate and get over this! Interested what will happen to Ivy now!
And where is my girl Georgina, she made the end scene hers 1!? Miss her X.o.X.o
@gossipcrazy- Blair is using Dan to run away from Chuck. She's still scared.
^^ i really hope so
pssh my lil chair heart is breaking.. just the mere thought of a dair end game....
Blair wants to forget her entire freshman year of college. Does this have anything to do with Chuck? Will Blair ever truly forgive him for what he did two years ago?
Blair is using Dan to run away from Chuck. She's still scared.
This story is going to make me bored. I can't understand why the writers are acting like this! I mean, it looks like everything is forced, the end was supposed to be Chair, and now I must see Dair?! I really hope like Su that Serena will take down Blair because she's acting like a pampered little girl who has always she want. I mean, we've always been watching a Blair like this I just described, but it was different: where's the Blair loving chuck? Chuck is doing ANYTHING to make her happy and it looks like Blair is wearing blinkers!!! And what about Dan?! Dan is cheating on everyone in the show, starting from Serena going to Chuck. He used to say he was so friend to Chuck: and this is the result!
Btw after all this mess, I really hope writers are going to make an incredible episode that really ends all these bad things and let everything go as it has to.
@Ace, I love the Fox and Scorpion story, but I think it'll just rile up @Helene, @jiannis who are sortof regulars to complain about a show they don't watch or even support.
So here's my Dair story:
A Snail (Dan) and Turtle (Blair) were in race with other creatures. The small Snail went on top of the back of the turtle and said:
"Hold on, Humphrey here we go..."
Reading about what gossip girl has become just disgusts me so much.
@Matthew wouldn't you call sending the video to gossip girl and then blaming chuck for the said video a scheme? so dan has his fair share of scheme just so blair and run into his waiting arms.
I was just wondering: When will we see them graduating? Wait, have they actually attended any classes? And I am especially waiting for Blair to become a "powerful woman" : UES interpretation: unsustainable mess or as serena said: someone with a multiple personality disorder.
ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTED WITH THIS SHOW> THANK_GOD I HAVEN"T WATCHED THE LAST FEW EPS.
And that's more Safran and company's fault. They limit Chuck to be this back and forth character that fails to be anything but your typical daddy-issue self-destructive sadist.
Now i'm done with GG, I really hope they cancel that crap. It doesn't have what made it great anymore, it's all forced, for mentally dull people, who can believe that you love someone one day, but decide to just move on to your best friend's love. WTF?
I really hope Serena destroys Blair, she was always the true queen, she just gave Blair her crown cause she was forced to leave NY, but the true queen was S, from ep. 1... time to take Blair down. Then she can cry all she wants with lonelyboy uuuuuuugh. Lonely boy? Really? Why don't they add Nate and Chuck as a couple too, then everyone screws everyone in the show.
Fantastic that Chuck has "changed" all of 5 seconds compared to the years of being Chuck Bass, and yet, still, whenever an opportunity suits his needs, he doesn't blink to regress back to what I can only describe as his true nature.
Yup... he's "so" the better man.
Chuck reminds me of this fable:
A scorpion was wandering along the bank of the river, wondering how to get to the other side. Suddenly he saw a fox. He asked the fox to take him on his back across the river.
The fox said, "No. If I do that, you'll sting me and I'll drown."
The scorpion assured him, "If I did that, we'd both drown."
So the fox thought about it and finally agreed. So the scorpion climbed up on his back and the fox began to swim. But halfway across the river, the scorpion stung him.
As the poison filled his veins, the fox turned to the scorpion and said, "Why did you do that? Now you'll drown too."
"I couldn't help it," said the scorpion. "It's my nature."
I think there's way more too the blast, and how it was sent. I definitely don't think it's gonna blow up as much in Dan's face, not how I originally thought at least. It's so nice to see a healthy, and normal relationship like Dan and Blair - I mean you can't question the legitimacy of the relationship as much as you like but it is apparent that Dan cares for her, and loves her flaws and all. No motives, no scheming or other factors just two people relating to each other on an honest and not misguided way. Great work Gossip Girl.
I feel so cheated. I really don't know who writes GG but as i've said before, my 5 year old sister could make a better job doing it. It lacks sense, they destroyed Blair as a character. Who was the start from the beggining? SERENA. Why oh why did Blair become intresting? Love affair with Chuck Bass. And now? She lovesssss him so much but she is kissing with Dan? DAN?! The writers forced that storyline so much it makes me sick, and did EVERYTHING even pledges with god (LOL?) to make two characters that brought fire to the screen simple move away from eachother. Chuck and Blair was my favorite TV couple, really, I just watched the show for them and thought every other character on GG was a waste.
My thoughts exactly. I, too, am mesmerized on how Chuck is now exalted and how now he is too good for Blair. Really? Really? Chuck Bass is now the moral compass of the show?
The same dude who, whenever opportunity serves him, reverts back to his devious ways and yet still claims to be a 'good' person? Seriously? Nevermind he is sleeping with Alessandra as a means to an end, or going forth to ruin Dan's career as a plagiarizer? Really? That Chuck Bass is too good for Blair?
blair wearing a headband during the improv thing would have been perfect. and it was nice that blair always puts serena first just goes to show how deep their friendship was. they're truly like sisters.
as for lola rejecting serena's offer it was cold but we have to bear with her seeing that she just have the biggest shock of her life.
ps. i did see dorota's charcter in the background but i didn't see jenny's . i guess i have to re-watch the episode to see it..LOL
i really loved this episode. i totally admire serena for her maturity for supporting blair and dan even if she's hurting inside. i hope her character continue to grow. but i do sympathize with her feelings tonight. i mean her grandmother died and then she has to deal with her bff falling for the guy she loves. rough night for S.
i love chuck this episode, i know that he's changing into a better man but seeing him play his old game plus the scarf was just classic. nice to see this from time to time.
chivy i don't get why she has to call georgina. i mean if she's mad at serena for throwing her out she kind of deserve it since she deceived them all although it was nice that even if she's an impostor she did have affections for the VDW/Rhodes family.
If the boys are going to get their homo on, it's Date all the way!
But I feel like Nate's character is being used as "the make it happen" kinda character.
You need a party so Dan and Blair can kiss? Nate's having one!
You need a cellphone to call Ivy and then a ride around the city? Nate can do it!
You need a car to leave a debutant party? Guess who came with a Town car that so happens to have their break broken down!
That's what I mean by "Nate being used as prop again"
OF COURSE MY LAST POST WASN'T "THE END"! That's what happens when you write and write and never look back. I need to set the record straight about something:
I know that is imposible for EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER to have a storyline in EVERY SINGLE EPISODE. It could get pretty messy if so, BUT, that's the problem with this writing and why the quality of the show decayed so much.
They make stories that are complex and then try to solve it or shove it under the rug in the next two episodes. It is proof that the "long term" SL is NOT the writer's strong suit. Take in place: CHARLIE RODHES. That Ivy girl is now a starring when she could have been EASILY a recurring character. Maybe build up the Lola person a bit more. Show her around in more episodes, get to know her in the background, so her appearing isn't so drastic.
