@anonymous i've read some posts on here as to why GG *won't* be cancelled. either it'll get a final 13 or a full 22-24 episodes. some of the more informative comments have talked about syndication, actors contracts, the digital sales, and all sorts of other components that i didn't consider to be part of the decision making process. ratings, though still very important, are not the only thing that is looked at.
on the other hand, i never thought House would be cancelled. i don't know the decision behind that one. i hope another network picks it up. it's not as great as it was in it's heyday but it's not like GG either.
@pty That's what the writers do, pile on poorly written storylines one after another, that's how we got the stupid Louis storyline that's still being dragged out.
@ms.m It's not just Chair, everything is swept under the rug. The step brother Scott, Blair's miscarriage, etc.
@momo83 Are you kidding me! Dan as much as anyone else knows Blair through and through. In fact, he's been with on her many "wicked" schemes, sometimes against his best judgement. No comparison to the shrinking violet that Louis thought Blair was!
Also, I hardly think you can call Dan's feeling for Blair an "infatuation", but no point in arguing with you if after all they have show how much he loves her, you still choose to call it an infatuation.
Finally, Dan started falling for Blair way before she ever needed his help. In fact, he thought she loved Chuck and like a true gentleman buttoned up his feelings for her. Instead he loved her from afar and was there for her as a friend. And now, FINALLY, when he actually musters up courage and does something for his OWN happiness for once, here's everybody pouncing on him!
I say GO Dan. Enough of being the silent lover. Express your love and eventually the most compatible couple aka Dair will be together.
back to why i was here...what i would like to happen:
Cece leaves all her money to Charlie. she can't be prosecuted for identity theft without Carol also being charged, since it was her scheme to begin with. Lily, Carol, and Serena probably gang up on he, saying she was in it for the money. Charlie leaves and finds Lola and signs over all the fortune to her. Lola decides to enlist Charlie's help to get revenge on the Van Der Woodsens/Rhodes.
Not incredibly interested in the Dowry crap...it's boring. a lot of it will be Chuck/Georgina confronting Dan about the video he sent in, threatening to tell Blair? i want Dan to confess on his own and Blair to be upset. as a Dair fan i don't want anything swept under the rug or forgiven. that was one of my big problems with Chair.
I agree with Where's Waldorf comments. That's how I remember the 10th season of Friends.
I don't like things that are happening in Gossip Girl right now but I'm still watching, and I'm gonna keep watching.
My opposition towards Dair doesn't stream from whether Dan owns up or not to whatever he does or doesn't do. My opposition always streamed from issues like the one I saw last night, where Blair kissed Dan in front of Serena and nobody bothered to think how this could or would hurt Serena, apparently only because Serena said that she would not be an obstacle if Dair decided to start a relationship. There was no need for this show to add another storyline where half the characters are going to end up hurt one way or the other.
@momo83 Dan already knows about her schemes/games, he's seen her do it countless times already.
Vanessa screwed him over with the book and left the show on her own.
Serena led both Nate and him on before ending up with Ben, screwing the both of them over and Dan finally got over her last season. It's awkward because they're step siblings and they have to be forced on set-up dates.
Like one of the other posters posted I believe the only reason Dan is infatuated with Blair at this moment is because she's playing the Damsel in distress and is in need of him. What will happen when that other side of her comes out? will Dan still be around? You know that side Blair told Cirus about of her that loves scheming and sex games. Will she be yesterday's news like serena and vanessa.
@momo83 The writers and the characters on the show have been propped up to show how much Chuck's changed, even though he constantly regresses to his old self.
Chuck is out of character and it's gotten worse and worse with each season, now he's just sitting around pathetically pining and brooding. He used to be at least fun and interesting, now he's just whispering his dialogue, probably because the actor doesn't seem to care about him anymore.
Vanessa stabbed him in the back and she also helped Juliette, which threatened Serena's life.
Serena led both Nate and Dan on before ending up with Ben, then she sided with Ben over Dan when he didn't trust him, so she turned her back on him and only wants him back now that she has no one.
Not only did Chuck ruin Blair's party last season, he forced himself on her and almost punched her.
All you're doing is twisting everything and blaming everything on Dan.
i keep seeing *GG cancellation* and we're tuning out until the real Blair Waldorf comes back, until Chair comes back. it's: Endgame, cancellation, tuning out. i've been watching prime time and daytime soaps for the last decade, with social interaction online via message boards, chat rooms, fan pages...etc. And I've NEVER seen a fan base throw such a tantrum over a couple. and i'm sure it's not JUST Chair fans...but fans of other ships on different shows do this too. i don't know if it's the direct interaction fans can now have with writers/producers via twitter...but it's all gotten nastier and unpleasant. and that makes me sad. it's a show. enjoy it, or don't. no need to threaten, harass, or belittle others tastes or opinions.
I was pretty dissatified with the dan and blair scenes this episode, especially her realization and when she admitted to dan she liked him, they couldn't have made it less anticlimactic, there was no ball or dress or tension, and it was completely overshadowed by blair and serena's fight and cece's death. You would think after a season and a half of build up they could find a better way to write that in. It was really infuriating. In fact, I much preferred blair and chuck's scene this episode even though i dont ship them anymore...
@Anonymous Which episode did chuck say he changed? I recall Blair saying "he's changed". I recall him going to therapy, apologizing to blair for all the hurt he's caused her and caring for his dog monkey, but I don't recall him saying he's changed. Chuck has calmed down a great bit from season 1, 2, and 3, but he still schemes when provoked. That's what he knows how to do very well, just as Humphrey knows how to judge very well.
Nothing that Chuck has done is out of character, unlike Dan blaming someone for releasing a video he sent out. Writing poorly about his father in a book being a has-been trophy husband. Ditching his life-long friend for the UES. Lying and manipulating his friend Nate countless times when Nate was dating Serena. Completely turning his back on serena after he promised her he would always be there for her. Oh and ruining blair's birthday. Should I go on? Very much out of character for the superior humphrey..don't you think?
@GGFail I agree with you 100%.
Blair belongs with Dan.
Dan critics who give his “badness” as reasons why he doesn't "really" love Blair, & why Dair should not happen-aren't you getting the contradictions inherent in your arguments.And that was a rhetorical question!
If being bad & scheming & trying to achieve your own ends & whatever other bad things you wanna throw at Dan are the reasons you say that Dair should not happen then let me tell you - CHAIR never ever should have happened & never ever will. Because anything bad Dan has done, Chuck has done something much, much worse.
Your "logic" seems to be - X is bad. Ergo X does not deserve to end up with their partner.
Well, then in the slime bag hall of fame, Chuck occupies center stage! If all the guys on the show are to some extent douchebags, and weasels and schemers and what not, then by any measure of the levels of "douchebaggery", Dan still is the least douchey of them all. And thus, he should be the one most deserving to end up with his love.
@toohip Did you even read what I said? I said that no one said that he's perfect.
Im not a Dan hater but Dan has always been a little snake in the grass nothing wrong with that, thats the show but to say he is perfect? Please
@lucyyy Gossip Girl deserves to fall even further.
@momo83 No he doesn't, Chuck has claimed several times throughout the series that he's changed and all of that crap, it's very disingenuous just like Blair's proclamation of love. Chuck's actions are cowardice, his rivalry behavior towards Dan and what he did to his manuscript was straight out immature for someone who has supposedly changed. He claimed that he's changed when he hasn't, you say that he's trying to be a better person but his devious actions says otherwise. Chuck has gone back/forth between pretending to change and being the same annoyingly moody, brooding emo for the last few years. No, everything went downhill in Season 3: Dan/Serena being step siblings, Chuck sells Blair out for a hotel to Jack, then he sleeps with Jenny and then tries to propose to Blair, etc. It just went downhill from there.
@Ninasmileface They're both in the wrong, that doesn't make one better than the other.
What's control is Chuck selling Blair out for a hotel or almost punching her in a drunken stupor and almost forcing himself last season when Blair told him to stop.
I don't see that as control. It's definitely bad behavior but Chuck and Blair are both guilty of that. They're notorious for their drama and games. Anyone thinking Dan isn't playing his own game is fooling themselves. He's not a knight in shining armor.
@momo83 Yes! I agree with that. Dan schemes and manipulates but denies it. He's a weasel. Chuck is a Bad Boy, but he owns it.
Chuck wasn't selfless when... (I have to snip due to the 1000 character limit. :P
Chuck is often not selfless, but when it came to the most important moment of Blair's life, he put his feelings aside.
Chuck wanted Blair to run away with him, he wanted to buy her out of her loveless marriage with Louis, he didn't honor her decision.
Sure he did. She decided to marry Louis and he pleaded his case - and then stepped aside for Louis. Once she *left* Louis he offered his help. That's not control. Had he acted to help her without her knowledge or permission, *that* would be control.
Love to see the Chair fans all riled up. "Oh, the writers are such idiots...they should just put chair together...blah blah blah". Even if Chair is endgame, I have got news for you. This is not the end.If Chair do end up together at the end of S6, their relationship might just become more mature and they will have their happy ever after. If not then the same will apply to the eventual endgames.Why are u guys so dramatic? And stop this "i am so never watching the show again" crap after every fucking episode. Real fans of the show are not going to abandon the ship when the end is so near.
@QueenB and @toohip Considering that Blair has no self respect after being traded for a hotel to Jack Bass and being in a loveless marriage with Louis after she cheat/humiliated him, I'm not surprised Blair has turned out the way she did.
@momo83 That's bs. Chuck has claimed that he changed but he hasn't, so he's not true to himself. He's no more a self righteous hypocritical jerk than what you people claimed Dan to be. You can blame that on the writers.
Please, Blair was already judgmental way before Dan came into the picture.
If he criticized Blair, it would've been in his book.
In the earlier seasons. He often was scornful of Blair and her actions, privileges, headbands, etc. in Real Life. If someone painted me in a flattering light in a book, yet criticized and talked down to me in real life, I'd place more weight on their actual behavior... that whole "actions speak louder than words" thing.
No one knew about Louis' motivation.
I'm referring to the time when Dan wanted to stop his story about Blair from being published and asked Louis to do it. Blair thought she'd been stood up, but Dan knew better and said *nothing*. He let her think the worst as it meant running off to the Hamptons with her.
team Serena all the way
I don't know anymore. I honestly don't want B with anyone. It doesn't make sense to me how she can love Chuck more and more everyday and yet still have feelings for Dan. Back when Serena did this to Nate and Dan everyone was annoyed with her, but it's okay for Blair to do the same? Makes no sense to me.
@Ace The difference between Chuck and Dan is that Chuck owns what he does, which is why he made it no secret to Dan that he was the one that messed up his book proposal. However, Dan is a coward he tried to pin the video coming out during the wedding on Chuck, knowing good and well he sent it out himself(and he still hasn't confessed this piece of information to anyone yet).
Chuck never made a public display that he's a changed man, he's just trying to become a better person. He is what what he is. This was one trait I use to like about Blair, she never portrayed herself to be an angel. She was who she was until the 2nd half of season 4 she became the female version of Dan. Acting above everyone else and pointing everyone elses issues, but her own. Dan has been wearing many faces since season 3 and has been going back and forth from good to bad.
When it comes to Chuck's change, let's not forget that Dan was a contributing factor. Nevermind that almost punching Blair didn't wake Chuck up from his alcoholic bender, but it was actually Dan's portrayal of Charlie Trout's suicide that moved Chuck to be more than just the sum of his actions.
And when Chuck was all hollowed out trying not to "feel" in even more self-destructive behavior, it was Dan who brought Monkey into Chuck's life.
