Gossip Girl > Gossip Girl Exclusive: Joshua Safran on Major Season Finale Cliffhanger, Evolution of Dair > Comments Page 6
This man irritates me so much. So Dair was on the docket all season long? Well, no shit, doofus. Anyone with half a brain could see that. My thing is why did they have to through w/ the Chair sex and subsequent pregnancy drama at the end of season 4 and the will they/won't stuff for like 13 episodes here in season 5? If Safran wanted Dair all along, cool. It's just ridiculous how he teased everyone with Chair. Louis was already in the mix, Chuck was moving on...the drama was unnecessary and quite boring, frankly. If they are ending Chair, they should've done that at 4.22 and "change the fabric" of the show for this season. Oh, but that would make narrative sense. Whoops!
At least Blair's boyfriend drama will be coming to an end it seems. Hip hip hooray for that! Now if only Nate, Serena and Chuck could get their own plots and things may be looking up for series 6. Or not...I mean Safran and NorBuck will still be on board after all. ;-)
I really hope that we have some dejavu of the pilot episode, and Serena seduces Dan like she did Nate. That would be classic.
LOL bathing in the tears of Chuckistan right now
Thank you for Dair! its an amazing story!
I'm not even going to address him. He doesn't deserve that I waste a thought on him.
If the show sanks because of the idiotic writing, I hope in 10 years TV Guide puts it on the number one spot for the "25 successful shows ruined by their creators".
This show is no longer Gossip Girl. I mean I thought it was supposed to be about the UES. Now it's all about Brooklyn? Caviar and macaroons have turned into waffles? So sad. :(
After reading this article, the 5/23-5/24 call sheet, spoilers etc. It is quite clear that Dair will be going on till the very end of the season. I stopped watching, simply because Dair is, one word, NAUSEATING!!! You can tell Safran loves Dair, but the majority of the viewers just can't accept it. Thus, even lower ratings then before. I'll be tuning back in for the season finale, the rooftop scene. If chair reunite, you got me for the entire season 6, if they say could bye forever, then I will to. I pray for a chair reunion, but I believe GG writers will follow the good folks over on "True Blood" and have blair choose herself and be single. Here's praying that safran and co realize that the only thing that can save GG now and improve ratings is CHAIR = HOT, HEAVY, HILARIOUS, and HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
How nice of Safran to allow us to say "anything we want about him as it is his job" but that is CRAP. His job is to write the show and we wish he would DO his job rather than half-assing what used to be my favorite guilty pleasure.
Safran gets it. Thank goodness. Dan and Blair has been the one relationship, besides Lily and Rufus, where they've actually shown why they should be together instead of a random hookup, then "I love you." They make each other happy and actually have a ton in common once you strip away the superficial outward trappings. It's taken a long time for Blair's cognitive dissonance to resolve (saying she wanted to be happy, then saying she would give up happiness to be with Chuck). Now it's clicking in her head that she can have love AND happiness. I'm excited to see Blair become strong again, not because of Dan, but because of herself, with Dan's support.
Whatever, Dan and Blair made me excited for this show again! Thank you Safran!
@V: Thank you so much for clarifying what IsabelleFTW was saying. In "Gaslit", Chuck was reassuring Blair that she made the right decision to take a "break" from them. It was obvious Chuck was still in love with her and it pained him to be around her too long. He could have easily taken advantage of the situation and gotten Blair back. That would've been a horrible thing to do. Man, when the mob turns against a character, they certainly turn hard, don't they?
@Shannon: We're quite aware who runs the series and, with all due respect, if this team continues doing a terrible job of plotting, writing and directing GG, I WILL call them out on it. What are we supposed to do, pray tell? Praise them for running this series into the ground? If you'd like to do that, more power to you. But I'm personally not going to start heaping false praise on this abomination. F that.
Oh jesus. This second part of the season sounds EXACTLY like the season half of last season- except with slightly different players. I really hope the finale does revolve around Serena and that isn't just bs hot air Safran is blowing - as per usual. I hate how much Safran is downplaying the Chair relationship. "The specter of Chuck"- okay, appropriate sentiments if they had really been "off" all season but she was just declaring her undying love for him. Whatever. I actually did like that Safran asked us shippers to be polite to one another but then I thought about how much he's played into this "war" and I just got more annoyed with him...
@Amygirl: haha! Awesome comment and so very true. That boy has 9 lives, I swear. @Maribells- Word to all of your posts. Very well said! I'll be laughing my ass off along with you if that's true!
The blair waldorf we used to know and love is gone. I'm not a huge dan fan, simply because, he isn't the most understanding person in the world - as he sees himself apparently...
Maybe Dair would've been a great couple under different circumstances, but cheating Blair and ignorant Dan, who btw thinks he's better than everyone else, aren't a good couple.
I honestly care more about chuck, nate and serena right now and i'm looking forward to see more from them!
To put what IsabelleFTW said in clearer terms, the Blair she loves is needy, who needs a man to define who she is so much so that when she broke up with Chuck she ran to Dan & Louis. To further correct certain misrepresentations by Isabelle, In Witches of Bushwick Blair broke up with CB to be "BW before she can be CB's girlfriend". In the next episode (Gaslit) CB was with the whole family during Serena's drug saga and specifically told Blair he was there for Serena while agreeing with her that they need time apart to sort things out. No need to lie just cos you love Dan, I love him too and I want him back with Serena cos he is the one person who always see's the good in her even when he judges her.
This makes me so sad...Blair and Chuck are meant to be
I know there are many Chuck haters and i also know there are many fans who don't care about Dan. So why do you guys wrote "Sorry fans. In the short term, expect "the specter of Chuck" to continue looming over the new couple, he adds, with Dan possibly having "a hard time coming to terms with the stresses that brings." I mean, no, just no. You could say "Sorry fans. Dan is still on this show" I really have no idea what he's doing here, maybe someday he'll sing Jesus Take the Wheel ?
And Dan accept Blair for whoever she is ? Oh My God, this is so... i have no words. Safran just forgot everything that happened in the previous seasons ? Dan does not accept Blair, or Serena. Dan actually think he's much more than everybody on the UES. And people don't come and say that i'm lying because it was actually said by him and Vanessa on several times before.
Safran, stop brainwashing people.
Great interview!! This whole last arc of the season sounds really interesting!!! And of course there is Dair added to the mix to make it even better!! I can't wait for there awesome moments!! And @Shannon Thank You so much for saying that!! (btw Norman Buckley is a director not one of the writers. =D)
@Shanon, do us all a favor and stfu. Don't tell others how to feel or how to respond to what they disagree with. The SHOW is put out there so that the fans can speculate\ and come up with whatever they think is what and what isn't. Lie they creators weren't expecting? umm I'm positive they were. So please, stop being a hypocrite.
I'd take Dan helping Blair in a sweet way over Chuck selling her out any day.
I actually like Safran for once. I agree that Dan sees Blair as who she is and has been there for her.
Come on people let's be real - it's a TV show and ultimately none of them pay for their mistakes. I like all the characters for different reasons and I like Dan and Blair together. I don't see Blair as having lost herself but instead has been finding herself. The spoilt madam she was in school is growing up and evolving. They can't stay the same forever - I mean no one does! I would actually be disappointed if Blair hadnt changed as I always thought her character had the most facets and depth.
Also, if "helping Blair rediscover Blair in a very sweet, good way" means putting a tiara on her head and parading her around in public in a princess costume, I will laugh until I cry.
It was pretty obvious they were pushing for Dair since last season- but it hasn't made it any less painful to sit through. Why bother with all the Chuck/Blair in 4x06-4x13 if the plan was just to throw her with Dan afterwards? I guess it was to remind us that they're not over, but all it really did was hurt Blair's character. They could've put her with Dan last season when Chuck and Serena were off doing their own thing, and it wouldn't have been nearly as bad- but now they both just look like dicks. Not that I expect Safran to realize that, because they're pretty clearly his pet characters... but acting totally self-absorbed and insensitive to everyone else's feelings, and never facing any consequences for their mistakes, isn't the way to endear characters to your audience.
Anyway, the sooner Dair/this whole triangle is over and done with, the better. I'd love to be able to actually watch S6 and enjoy it, and I can't tolerate watching those two in a relationship, it just sucks all
Wherefore Art thou Blair Waldorf? I'm seriously considering the possibility that an Alien did take over Blair's body. Seems like a more believeable storyline, not to mention that storyline would be kinder to my Stomach than 'Dair' well I got a Dair for the producers, to see how low they can get the ratings, as far as I can see they can't get any lower.
