Gossip Girl > Gossip Girl Review: Winning! > Comments Page 8
.... I respect the opinion of those who want Blair and Chuck together but I'm a sucker for the outsider and the rich girl falling in love. And the writers have wisely taken their time with this one and I feel have planned all along to bring them together. When I saw Dan and Blair split screened watching movies together, I was hooked. They find each other on Valentine's Day as if that's just the way their navigational system works. I love it. Keep it coming. I don't know if they will be endgame but this is entertaining.
I believe that this show has a real relationship here. Dair I mean. Not Chair. It has been a build up and if they take it down next episode its their loss. But for you Chair fans out there...think about one thing. If you were in Blair's position, who would you choose? The caring, best friend whom you also have feelings for or the great love who hasn't always been that great. And don't spout any of the bullshit about Dan and the video or Chuck and his freaking love for Blair. Because even in this messed up world they have created on the CW, they should at least have one redeeming couple. I also want to think Lola and Nate are going somewhere too. That seems like a good relationship that they should expand on.
Chuck hasn't changed at all. He is having sex with another woman, using it to compensate for the loss of Blair. Which ain't healthy either. Then he sabotages Dan. I don't pity him, because he is using his own for good. You don't have to good, to have a relationship with Blair. You are good entirely.
I was disappointed, since he was making such a great start, wanting to change and such. I just don't get why he has to do all those things to prove his love. You don't prove love by hurting others. You prove that you love that person, and the people around them.
@Sal Yeah, he supposedly changed because he got a dog and put a blanket over Dan and then he reverted back to his old self with screwing Alessandra and changing Dan's manuscript.
NEWS FLASH: PENN'S HAIR IS LONG BECAUSE HE'S FILMING A MOVIE ABOUT JEFF BUCKLEY. And it's fantastic the way the writers have used this for Blair insults. A few years ago I stopped watching the show for quite a while. It was about the time the writers were linking Dan romantically with Vanessa and then there was something about a threesome. I turned the channel and didn't watch for a while. I came back to the show in season 4 because of Leighton Meester and Penn Badgley. I also appreciate the ridiculous fun of this show. As someone said, it is a farce and pure escapism.
Chuck has not changed at ll. Appalling as usual, using sex and weak women. Did he not try to change at the beginning of the season? He will NEVER change...
@Dair For Ever Gossip Girl is actually losing viewers from the writers' own incompetence, so no, I'm not helping.
The number of comments and activity/buzz that Gossip Girl doesn't help despite all of the special treatment the CW gives it.
@GGFail No one knew about Louis' motivation. Blair chose to go through with her loveless marriage after cheating on/humiliating Louis, no one forced/influenced her, she chose to make her stupid choices.
Chuck wasn't selfless when he slept with Alessandra and had Dan's manuscript plagiarized after he supposedly changed.
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. The accident happened when they were in the limo together before the accident.
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.
Please writers, dont't ruin DAIR. We love them together. And I am so happy Dair stands a chance at the poll. I mean, they are just starting and Chair has been going on forever .so it is natural Dair is less favored by the majority. I agree with a poster below, those who love Dair just do, there is no explanation to it. The same with Chair lovers. Am just happy we get to see some Dair finally.
@Anonymous - I don't know which shipper you are and it doesn't matter. Judging by your comments, you're clearly not a fan of the show. But just logically speaking, by being here and commenting so may times you're actually increasing the page views and comments count on a site that's about the show. Wouldn't it serve your agenda much better to just completely ignore it and not drive traffic towards any GG-related material? Just saying!
@GGFail If he criticized Blair, it would've been in his book. He wrote Blair in a positive light unlike Serena. What you described sounds more like Serena and every time she falls head over heels in love with every 'nice' guy she meets while using Dan as a backup.
@Where's Waldorf You're bothered enough to whine about it in your posts.
@Dair For Ever
OMG, I so agree with you. They did not know what they were creating but it became something so beautiful, so surprising. I love Blair more when she is with Dan. I despise her when she is with Chuck.
His motivation isn't caring for *her*, it's only to ingratiate himself by riding to her rescue to make himself important. Was he going to take her to the Hamptons away from Louis when he knew full well the reason WHY Louis did what he did? Yes. Did he act as a true friend and tell her Louis' motivation so that she could be reassured of Louis? NO! Because that would be at odds with his quest to be Hero. Sending that video in to Gossip Girl? So selfish. In that instance, Chuck was the selfless one because when Blair shook her head "no" during the ceremony, he didn't speak. He listened to Blair and honored her decision. Dan, in another show of egotistical superiority, overrode Blair's decision and sent the video. That's not love, that's control. He has to prove that he's right and she's wrong. Lather rinse repeat for however long this insanity continues.He's in love with an idealized vision of Blair, and she's mistaking a sense of obligation for love.
For all the Dair shippers saying that a relationship with Dan is "healthy" and he "cares". Puh-leeze. That horndog cares only for himself. He has the same rose-colored glasses on when viewing Blair as he did with Serena. She's a distant shiny pretty thing that he places on a pedestal while at the same time constantly criticizing her behavior and her world. He may sneer at the UES, but he wants it. He kept picking at S until they broke up. It would be the same with B.
wahhh not bothered for Dair :( I've never liked the loser and the popular bitch getting together. I like watching sexual chemistry and I don't see it in Dair. But I'm going to keep watching because everyone's stories have been pretty entertaining this season and I can't wait to see what happens next.
@GGFail Gossip Girl really doesn't deserve another season so the terrible hacks can crap out more contrived crap.
People should just drop the show and stop watching.
The audience demographics for GG shows an ages 12-18 skew. So I get why the high school boyfriend might seem to be the ONLY boyfriend possible. But, even in the fictitious world of GG, the characters have had to age both chronologically as well as emotionally. And one can & does outgrow high school relationships. Doesn't mean you cease to like that old love, you just like him/her in a different way, because now you are in love with someone else.
Blair & Chuck loveD each other. Blair & Dan LOVE each other.
Watching re-runs multiple times has convinced me how unbalanced the writing on GG can be - veering from Awesome to Abhorable. I think the Dair pairing emerged as something unexpected and very beautiful. I don't think they actually planned on it - so Dair might be the least “manufactured” relationship on GG. Dair emerged as something natural & wholesome & thereafter the writers probably just went with the flow...but they had so not seen it coming, and they had this Chair fan base to appease, that the writing kept getting more contrived. It is to Dair's credit that they still SHONE. I think the writers should really trust their instincts & for once give Dair an - author-backed - chance.
@ Dair for ever : you are totally right it's incredible for a couple that did not even started to have such a high support rate ! Come on Chair has been here since season 1 it is mathematically normal for them to have more shippers. But what does matter is that Dair shippers have increasing share, and also as one previously said ...all that matters is quality over quantity. I love the witty intellectual so look alike and at the same time full of constrasts relationship that links them!
Sooo glad I didn't watch this episode. The comments are enough to let me know that would've regretted wasting an hour of my life.
I loathe the soap opera Gossip Girl has become.Heightened reality is fun to watch, but the show has become a parody of itself. Fake cancer? Secret love-child? Hire-a-fake-child? Long-lost parents? The entire royal storyline? Please. This show is a farce. The increased incidences of pregnancies and medical dramas as storylines is soooo low rent. Did the UES suddenly become a giant trailer park?
The first 2 seasons had great OMG storylines that were fun: financial scandals, real-estate drama, art, fashion (I miss Jenny because since her departure there is no fashion story at all... such a missed opportunity for a show set in Manhattan), and the lifestyle / manners conflicts between the UES and Dumbo. It started downhill in Season 3 and picked up steam from there. I used to have hope that it could recover, but I no longer do.
Dair is the best thing on this show right now!
@erica and @JM Then stop watching and drop the show and just watch clips online instead.
@Where's Waldorf When I mean brooding, I meant being emo, pining over Blair, sitting and waiting around. I miss the old Chuck before the writers ruined his character, he's not supposed to be a villain, that's called bad writing.
With Chuck, the writers constantly revert him back to this annoyingly brooding, emo state instead of actually developing his character.
Gossip Girl doesn't really have any depth, but at least it used to be fun and interesting, especially the character interactions with each other.
hohoho! Dair unbearable! This is crap! CHAIR endgame
I think the whole Joey Rachel awkwardness bit happened after Barbados i.e. Joey does go back to Rachel in that episode, but later when they try making out they find it so awkward - which means they probably didn't sleep together earlier. Anyway, I don't have a better recollection but to those who were talking about that I'm sure a quick google search would give you the answer!
