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

by 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!

@Zoran I think that Serena and Blair will be just fine. If Serena has an honest conversation with herself, she will realize that she had lost Dan with the Ben fiasco. There is a guy who was the only person among her friends and family(which by the way is extremely overlapping) to believe her innocence in the drug case and stood up against his family for her. And after all that, when she recovers, she breaks his heart over someone like Ben and rubs it in his face. And later even after knowing that he is in love with her best friend, she goes and tells him that she is in love with her. Serena is the one who in the fault here, not Dan or Blair.

@ Where's Waldorf
I agree with you, and I hope you're right, but I'm afraid that this time Serena will not forgive Dan.
@ Blair should be happy
Blair should be happy, but her happiness can not break up a friendship with Serena and Chuck, as well as the relationship between Dan and Blair can not break up friendship Dan with Serena and Chuck.

First, I think that such a large number of supporters of Blair and Dan are former supporters of Serena and Dan. Secondly, this 5th season has its own distinct and fundamentally dismantled in a series of events. The views of other spectators that Blair is now the happiest are not accurate, we should all recall last 4. seasons when she tied his luck for Chuck, telling Serena - Blair: Chuck just makes me happy ... I think the writers are playing with the audience because such fractures in a series only raised its ratings. So far there are over 1000 comments on the last episode.

Where are you guys/girls? I like cursing as much as any one, but this is ridiculous.

@Clair Carmichael You have nailed it girl. Blair is happy, perhaps the most happy and content she has ever been. So, why should she let go of this happiness? And don't give be the 'they are meant to be together' or 'they belong with each other' crap. As someone commented earlier, this belong and 'meant to' crap has caused enough damage to the show. If Dan can Blair can be happy together, then good for them, they should be together. If not, then I hope that they move on in their lives and don't go back to their teenage loves because of some misguided sense of belonging.

@over-thinking You aren't over thinking things. There is a chance you're right. The same thing happened to Serenate. They seemed legitimate but burnt out by the season's end because Serena once again struck up something with Dan. She and Dan always build sound relationships with other people only to return to each other eventually.

I'm not a shipper, I've always been happy to go along with the pairings the writers see fit. What I AM however is a massive fan of BLAIR. And I can't remember the last time we saw Blair as happy as she was in that most recent kiss with Dan, or as comfortable with someone as she has been with him in the last few episodes. SO Chair fans can bitch and moan about the turn of events, and DAIR fans can plot out how this is endgame, or always have meant to have been or whatever. ME? I just want to see Blair smile like that some more, before the writers decide what next calamity to throw at her.

The timing makes me nervous - usually a couple with longevity won't actually get together until a season cliffhanger ending... when a couple is put together this close to the end of season it normally means that they'll be burnt out by the season ender...

And who am I? That's one secret I'll never tell ... You know you love me. XOXO, Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl

[to Jenny] That's the thing. You need to be cool to be queen. Anne Boleyn thought only with her heart and she got her head chopped off. So her daughter Elizabeth made a vow never to marry a man. She married a country. Forget boys. Keep your eye on the prize, Jenny Humphrey. You can't make people love you, but you can make them fear you. For what it's worth, you're my Queen. I choose you.
