Gossip Girl > Gossip Girl Round Table: "The Backup Dan" > Comments Page 4
I really think it was Louis who sent that blast... or Georgina herself. Also do I think that Dan will be the one who might be using it for blackmailing Louis.
I know that this may sound crazy but I think Louis sent the blast. Remembre Georgina tried to seduce him but Rufus and Lily got their before he did. Maybe he did that so that the world would know what kind of woman he was marrying and thus earn public sympathy when they get divorce. IT IS NOT THE FIRST TIME HE SENT OUT A BLAST.
As a Chair fan, I want Dair to be given a chance because I want it put to the test. Will Dan and Blair stand by each other through anything? Will they become each other's family? Will they always love each other? Time will tell.
I think Dair has the potential to be light, cute, and easy... uncomplicated. I actually think it's where B might be right now as a character. However, unless the show's doing a total retcon, I don't care what Blair's intellectual and artistic tastes are... she is absolutely complicated. Dan couldn't deal with Serena's complexity in Season 1 and got angry about the Georgina situation. I don't think, in the end, Dan will be able to handle the parts of B's personality that he doesn't get. But I'm willing to be wrong.
It's interesting that some Dair fans admit they haven't watched the entire series. I've never met a Chair fan who says that. I think that anyone can ship anything just because it's their preference, but it's difficult for people to comment on a ship they don't like (Chair) if they don't know the whole story.
Our ship isn't just the subtext or the slow build, it's one of the main stories that we think GG is telling. We're not just cute, light, and sweet. Then again, GG, for you new viewers, was never going for cute, light, and sweet. This is not Dawson's Creek. It's a completely different world, with different characters and character motivations. And I disagree that the UES relationships and families are supposed to be like our middle class worlds. I hear Dair justified bc "it's the most realistic" but nothing about GG is realism.
the possibility of dan/blair was always in the back of my mind, but i stopped watching since S3 and only was back in S5 because of the dair thing in S4, and i went back and watched their scenes that i missed, and oh how my dair heart beats happily.
i want them to happen. chair doesnt have to be endgame (i know i wanted to, not anymore), for this is tv, fiction, soapy even. pure entertainment. anything can happen. so let dair happen. hey, they can even be endgame. why not, eh? they're cute now, just as chair was cute all those years ago when they were teenagers. hail dair! :) :) :)
i LOOOOVE DAIR!!!
i used to love chair soo much, esp. s1 and to a degree S2, when they were young love, passionate, innocent, and all that. but it got tired. and i got tired watching them.
i was always wondering about blair and dan after their hallway(?) soul baring talk. never like derena, they were boring, and serena gets even boring with each season. i thought dan's character was boring esp in S1, but slowly penn badgley managed to improve it (by improving his acting?).
I've grown to really dislike Blair's character. She treats everyone around her like shit. She lies to her husbend (I know it's not an excuse for his behaviour but look what she has put him through the past year, cheating and more), is rude to her best friend and runs away with him even though she knows that he's in love with her and that her other "best friend" is in love with him, she doesn't seem to care about Chuck's feelings at all plus she is whiny and childish. Now that I've mentioned it, the writers makes her seem very cold an deatached when she for starters doesn't mention her child at all and forgets about her misscarrige after like 5 seconds .
Also, I realised it seemed like I didn't think CHAIR had the 'more than just passion' - I think anyone who's watched Seasons 1 through to now will agree with me that that's clearly not true! I just think that the passion element should be played up on screen possibly more than in real life- and for that, you're going to want CHAIR, not DAIR. Even the idea of Dan and Blair kissing etc just seems a bit awkward, or quaint, not even close to 1x07 hot or piano sex hot ;)
I actually want DAIR to happen, just so everyone can see that these two will never work as the couple everyone thinks they will :P I think they have great oneliners and really funny scenes together; but that's all in a platonic sense!! There's no heat between the two of them, they're funny and sweet and that's exactly what the show needs, a good friendship- the lack of focus on Blerena and Chate/Date has made the show worse IMO. However for a good COUPLE, you'd need them to have an element that I've never ever felt with them, that of desire and passion. Obviously in real life you need more than just passion but this is a tv show and if I'm going to watch dates and couple scenes, I'd rather it be CHAIR heat-infused incounter than cutesy banter which I could see anyway through their friendship.
Just saying, I hope the writers do explore DAIR. Then we can get back on track to CHAIR for the series finale :)
Rufus kept the secret from Sophie, which was the most important thing. Messing with Eleanor on the other hand is definitely the worst idea ever. The Grimaldi family doesn't know it yet, but forcing Blair to stay with Louis was a huge mistake. The Woldorf women will make their lives hell. Payback time, girls.
Georgina as not-the-real-GG is a major relief. That's it.
The blast was not sent by Dan. Otherwise I will never watch this show again.
Lola seems clueless, but years of GG history filled up with twist and turns seriously damaged me and now I'm constantly suspicious.
Favourite quote - with so many great one-liners from basically everyone, it's hard to choose. I'd say it's a toss-up. Dorota: "He said he wants to find Miss Blair and get her the help she needs, which in the romance novels means locking her forever in tall tower". Dair exchange at the airport - Dan: "Relax, they're staring at you because you're wearing a wedding dress", Blair: "Yes, right, you have a point".
How awesome is Dair? OMG, there's not enough awesome words in the dictionary to describe how awesome they are. I looooooove them. They saved this episode and their fight in the hotel was the best scene I've seen on "GG" lately. Dan stood up for himself and let's face it - he was right. He really was the only person always there for her in this entire stupid mess. And then Blair expressed appreciation and admitted that she cares about him too. All in all - huge deal for Dair, they are on a totally new level now.
Both of Blair's excuses were incredibly stupid, but I'm still going with the whole God deal. Ok, dowry is a little much (repeating after Chuck: what century do they think this is?), but money is a good reason because it really is an issue. And personally I find it impressive that Blair accepted the consequences of her own mistakes instead of just buying her way out of it with someone else's money. Whereas the God thing was plain ridiculous on every level.
Dair = Addictive...I just love them
Was always a Chair person, but now I am a self-confessed Dair love. These two are really cute together and love the snappy exchanges between them. Oh and the chemistry is off the charts! As for Serena, who the fcuk cares? She has always been a whiny self-obsessed brat and that won’t change ever! Watching Blake Lively is a snoozefest!
Dan and Blair are so perfect for each other !!! They deserve a shot
DAIR is going to happen weather ppl like it or not
Hope the writers dont ruin Dan’s character by that stupid Video blast storyline !!! Please give DAIR a shot !!! I mean they are not a couple yet and just look at how many people are coming out in support for these two
DAIR is the single most wonderful thing in this and last season’s GG. the writers should really give them a real chance as a couple against Chair ( which has become extremely boring and with a lotta baggage)
Gotta love Dan and Blair, they are not even a couple yet and still have a huge fan base. Just think what kind of a fan base they could have if they finally become a REAL couple and show what their chemistry is made off. I would bet a lot of Chair ans would jump ship to DAIR as I did when I was huge chair shipper but I’m now so in love with Dan and Blair
Can’t wait for DAIR to become a real couple !!
Awww Dair!!! I love everything we have gotten lately, waiting for the shoe to drop tbh, but until then Dair heaven is where I reside.
Loving the final season of DH as well,can’t wait to see how that ends!
DAIR FTW. It’s about time we got some good news for them, and those pictures of them at the MET are beyond adorable.
I’m so glad Dan is finally telling Blair how he feels. It’s about time
Dair shippers are currently very happy with the next episodes!!
Btw pretty sure Louis is going to die! I’m just saying that would make perfect senses.
Dan and Serena have been exes for years. When was the last time they actually were a couple?
Of course it would hurt Serena, if Dair were to happen, but if Dan doesn’t reciprocate her feelings, should he and Blair stay apart just to not hurt Serena’s feelings?
What about their feelings?
DAIR FTW PEOPLE!
