Gossip Girl > Gossip Girl Exclusive: Joshua Safran on Major Season Finale Cliffhanger, Evolution of Dair > Comments Page 3
@Zoran Perhaps that is the case. Like I said I don't mind Dair. I just don't understand where Safran is coming from with some of his statements about the two of them. Dan hasn't always understood Blair or actually even liked her. Chuck has. That doesn't mean that Dair shouldn't end up together, but why fabricate statements to back up a couple that you like. I love this show. I have every episode on DVD and I can tell anyone that Dan and Blair haven't been destined from the beginning. Yes, things happen and yes at some point it seemed inevitable that they would try a relationship out but not in the first season.
I also just mainly want Blair back to the HBIC that she's always been. That's why I LOVE her character. I don't like what she's become. That's the sole reason I don't enjoy the show as much as I use to. It has nothing to do with Dair.
I also read somewhere that the core four will be teaming up to possibly take multiple people down like we've seen them do before and that
Yay! Dair sexy times!
I agree with you. Very unprofessional of Safran to discovered that pre-end series, although this should only happen in the next season. Perhaps he is dissatisfied with declining audiences for the series, but this is his fault. A few days ago I commented that perhaps there will be no happy ending series. And what would be a happy ending series? Dan and Serena together. Chuck and Blair together. After these changes in the series not to be excluded.
You're wrong. Dan is. Mr. Big, but Serena is Carrie. And literally - blonde. And she knows to write, she has its own column.
@Zoran I think it was terrible for him to ruin it too. Basically saying in the Perez interview that they were endgame...I mean at least let us Chair fans be dissapointed when it doesn't happen at the end of next season...Don't go on and ruin the whole next season for us now. I don't mind Dair together, but it would be nice to have Chair as endgame. They've had this connection since the very first episode. I don't understand what the writers and producers are doing. I'll see this series out, but I don't see it ending in the way I would like, unfortunately.
Mostly you're right. I agree with you that the series turned upside down. Also, I agree with you that we should let the affair Blair and Dan that to happen. But the producer Safran has already announced that the relationship between Dan and Blair for the definitive end of the series. What is not very professional and spoil the enjoyment of watching the series. Other romantic relationships in the series are scattered, why should this be successful? As for the actors Blake and Penn, I did not say that they are not professionals in their pols, on the contrary. I have a high opinion of them, especially for Blake. But I think it is very difficult for them, because of their past, to act side by side, especially the love scenes. You can call it what you will what writers doing, but the fact that they consistently maintain some relationship between Serena and Dan, and thus do not finish their story.
Dair is the only reason I watch GG! I don't care if they're endgame, I just love them for what they are and I could not be more excited for the following episodes.
@Filzah...I sincerely hope what you said comes true. I doubt it but one can hope right?! I so want Dair to be together for ever :) The best and most unexpected and most suitable couple to ever emerge out of GG in particular and such shows in general...they are so made for each other and it's bordering on the insane to bring back the completely washed out and boring Chair together just to please some fans.
Dair Endgame. This interview pretty much confirms it but I guess they have to leave some mystery to it. :D
If Dair is endgame the GG writers will literally be my favourite people ever.
Love dair they're so sweet and perfect
It saddens me that you compare Chuck to Mr.Big.
Even though Big was a flawed character (as were they all) who had commitment phobia issues, he was never as dark and disturbed as Chuck's character is.
Chuck is written as a tragic character and his relationship with Blair was mostly melodramatic and catastrophical in a juvenile sort of way and while Big and Carrie had their share of difficult moments, their relationship was always more realistic, sane and grown-up.
Big had left Carrie high and dry a few times but even though he could be a jerk on occasion he never meant Carrie any harm or purposely tried to take her down/ruin her life.
Basically the only thing chuck has in common with Big is their wealth and wearing expensive suits, riding in town cars.
Also, what made Carrie and Big cool was the fact that Carrie was a kinda hipster writer with an attitude and Big was more UES rich type, so if anything, Blair is Big and Dan is Carrie :)
The interview screams "Dair endgame"
You are completely right, Dair relationship is so out of character that I can't take it seriously, therefore I haven't been watching the show for the last few episodes because I want to remember Gossip Girl when it was a good, entertaining show. And you are also right about the whole 'amazing cliffhanger, something that will change the characters forever' thing. Gossip girl does this every season. Actually, every few episodes. It then turns out to be something really boring like one of the characters getting a new job or yet another guest star coming in.
There are so many Sex and the City parallels in Gossip Girl.
Both Carrie and Blair have 4 major relationships.
Louis is Aleksandr Petrovsky
Nate is Aidan Shaw
Dan is Jack Berger
Chuck is Mr Big
Anyone who doesn't watch Sex and The City should watch it because I'm pretty sure the Gossip Girl writers get a whole lot of inspiration off it. One of there producers off Sex and The City work for Gossip Girl.
Just thought I would share this.
"The Upper East Side will never be the same."
Sorry. But don't the writers say something like this every year? These 'big cliffhangers' just turn out to be minor things that never really go anywhere. I miss the old Gossip Girl, sorry dair fans but I don't like the dair setup. It's out of character and it bores me, I wish Serena and Nate would get back together though, they were so cute! Please get Chair back together and let them have their Chairytale!
I'm many things but not wrong here. I think they have the right to see how the relationship plays out. There have been lots of other occasions that other characters have made decisions that have impacted the others. Everyone is complaining about this one because it's Dair and its turned GG on it's head, which I for one am glad about. Going round in circles with the same old ships is boring. Blake and Penn are professional actors and should be able to deal with their parts. Lots of other actors manage it and it seems a lame reason to blame the writers for not rehashing old storylines.
Your mother was right, but you're wrong. Remember how Blair reacted in a season 1 when she found out that Nate slept with Serena. The two got into a fight at a school game! Dan and Blair are not alone in NYC so they have not to ignore the feelings of others. Not only Serena had multiple partners. Between 1 and 2 season Dan is changing girls like napkins - every other night (GG gave him the name of the playboy). The only reason why Blair and Dan together now is because the actors Blake and Penn can not act love scenes. When it began to develop a love story between Dan and Blair – in the four season. And at the beginning of season 4 actors Blake and Penn broke up their relationship.
I think Dan and Blair have the right to see out their connection without having to think it's at the expense of other people. Serena has had relationships with Nate, college lecturer guy, Ben etc and well, Chuck has messed about with anything in a skirt. As my mother often says; you can't help who you fall for.
As for Serena and Dan, Serena was not to blame for their four breaks. For the first three breaks Dan was the culprit. In the first season, Dan is more believed the girl he met in the park - Georgina, but Serena. In the second season Dan where trying to subdue Serena, and after he cheated on her with her teacher. Last break in season 4 is more taken for their private termination relatioship, and they had nothing to tear because they are not related from the season 2. Dan and Blair can not be happy at the expense of Serena and Chuck. Why do writers have focused on the relationship between Serena and Dan in season 4, when they are not together since season 2? And why in season 5 Serena suffers for Dan?
I agree that the writers have dragged Chuck and Blair on for far too long but I think all the characters have been changing and finally we are seeing the outcome of it. I don't agree though that they have been as focused on Dan and Serena for as long as I think that ship sailed. There's been too much family stuff between them not too mention Serena never being able to make a concrete decision. I liked Chair and Derena at the time but that was then and I am happy with Dair now. As I said I can take the show as it comes.
If Serena does something like that I hope it does backfire on her. It makes me laugh that everyone is saying how awful Blair is being to her. Blair didn't deliberately set out to hurt her. Neither of them control Dan and who he falls he love with. She should want them to be happy instead of being bitter that she missed her multiple chances with Dan.
Great, you're right! The main link in the series is the relationship between Serena and Blair. I think you hit the essence of the series.
An interesting theory, I think that no one fell from memory. Well you made that connection, but Safran has been discovered which will Blair decide - Love (Dan). However, your theory makes sense, maybe Serena stays in the series.
like someone else said---Jack Bass will probably turn out to be Chuck's father. Jack/Diane will be revealed as Chuck's parents. Bart decided to raise Chuck as his own b/c Jack/Diane were too immature/young...etc. it's plausible and it would be a really great twist seeing Chuck have parents/interacting with them.
people won't like this, but i really feel the writers will do Chuck/Serena. that will get teased in the finale. GG episode 1 was Chuck hitting on Serena and forcing himself on Jenny. He's already slept with Jenny. Now that Dair has happened, the last frontier in challenging the Serena/Blair friendship is if Chuck/Serena got together. Ultimately, Serena/Blair are the show's central relationship. Not Chair, Dair, Nair...etc. writers always wanna challenge that friendship.
does anyone else think that Serena publishes Blair's diary on the GG site in the season finale out of *spite*?!remember, Serena sabotaged Blair when she was meeting Louis mother for the first time out of revenge for Blair kissing Dan.
the writers are saying the finale will revolve around the S/B friendship. the biggest thing to happen to test their friendship is the development of Dair. i *think* Serena will publish Blair's diary (hoping it will put Chair back together...but subconsciously it's revenge), Blair will re-evaluate her feelings, say a final goodbye to Chuck as a result, and confront Serena/call her out about her issue w/ the Dair relationship. the *REAL* choice will be Serena forcing Blair to choose her (their friendship) or Dan (their relationship). and we won't know until S6 who Blair chose.
Blair said that now Chuck does not have his heart. So it is the perfect moment in order that Chuck has a new girlfriend
