Gossip Girl's Dan and Blair: Will They Last?

at . Comments

Now that Dan and Blair are a full-fledged couple (or at least clearly headed down that path, without a prenup, Chuck or Louis looming as immediate obstacles), the question becomes, when the show returns April 2:

Will it last? Or will these two quickly realize they're better as friends?

That's an open question, but their bedroom woes won't do them in.

TV Line's Michael Ausiello says that the sex problem Dan and Blair encounter on the next episode (as evidenced by the Spring 2012 Gossip Girl promo) will not necessarily be the thing that derails Dair.

"Those resourceful kids will quickly find a solution to their sad sack woes," he reveals in his weekly spoiler column, "Although I can’t really see them sustaining said solution on a long-term basis."

Hmm. Any thoughts on what that solution is? And whether it will be sustainable?

This is just one person's opinion, mind you, but it's likely to be shared by many who just can't envision Dair together for good. On the flip side, many fans see them as the sole reason for the show at this point.

Don't forget there's that on-set kiss that is allegedly from the episode after April 2, so even if they do end the romance, it may not be imminent. Anyway, what do you think? Comment, and vote, below!

@Blair should be happy
I'm with you. I haven't been interested in a Serena and Dan reunion since they split up the first time. They just bore me and I'm so glad it went nowhere in S4. I loved Chuck and Blair from the start and as long as they were interesting I wasn't too bothered about other people's relationships although I did quite like Serena and Nate. Chair stopped being interesting though and for me Chuck killed it with declaring love for Raina whilst he was meant to be waiting for Blair. Dan and Blair have always had an interesting dynamic and I think their relationship is a natural progression and hopefully will be endgame. The characters need to evolve - no one is the same as in high school and it's rare to have relationships from that time to last to adulthood. Dair for me!

Of course the characters in the series can not be left not changed, they change and grow, but the writers have not yet disconnect between Serena and Dan, and Chuck and Blair. On the declaration of love Serena to Dan writers did not write that Dans answer will be for example: Serena I do not love you, let's just be friends. Previous experience of viewers of this series suggests that it is unlikely that the end of this season one pair has a happy ending.


@zoran English efficiency is irrelevant. All fans, irrespective of their nationality and language are welcome to express their opinions. If it weren't for the international fans, this show might have ended already.
It is a television show, but that does not mean that the characters should remain the same forever. Character growth is a necessity of every fictional reality.

Sorry my English is bad.
It is true that people grow and change, but this is not life this is a television series. I am not writing this screenplay series, the writers have set up such a plot. I'm just trying to express my opinion and to substantiate arguments. You will agree to disagree.


@erica This is the problem with you chuck fans. Like the character you adore, you are blind to reasoning and can't hold an argument to save your lives. The logical extension of your illogical statement is that Chuck is a man whore and a pimp to boot. But you won't hear me say that.XOXO


@zoran If you are so sure about the end, then good for you. Obviously, I can't show you something that you refuse to see. People grow up, people change. And I for one, am glad by this change.XOXO


blair is just a lost slut.Seriously this bitch disgust me i don't give a damn who she ends up with as long as it is not chuck he is NOW too good for her.I love louis i love chuck now i love dan please who can take her seriously now?she really disappointed me she can't be a queen now she is just a social pariah who can't take her crown back ugh


@ Blair should be happy
Again, I disagree with you, the story can not now begin, it is not a new series. The plot of the series has long set before, and can not change the story at the end of the series. Both were taken for granted both pairs, there is no innocent. As I have said in 100. episode Serena declare to Den of her eternal love. If you are remind at beginning to the first episode in 1. season, when Serena returns to NYC in the railway station Dan see her and then the voice of GG: A lonely boy can not believe that the love of his life is back in NYC ... Of course Dan and Blair are not obligated to be with her teenage love, but this is the plot of the series through all seasons.


@zoran Chuck and Serena certainly don't treat the love of their lives as they should. They have always taken Blair and Dan for granted. And teenage romances hardly qualify as love of live. Dan and Blair are not obliged to be in love with their teenage flings. Its time to move on. Every thing till now was a prologue, the story begins now.


@ Blair should be happy
I do not agree with you, Serena has made a huge mistake with Ben in the 4th season, but her declaration of eternal love to Den in 100 episode corrects that error. Dens relationship with Serena is very strange since the 4th season, especially after the publication of Dens book . For Serena Dan is love of her life and vice versa, and for Chuck Blair is love of his life and vice versa. And because of that Serena can not remain friends with Blair as much as the Blair tried, and with Dan to.
