Gossip Girl Producers Preview "Salon of the Dead"

by at . Comments

We've already posted one promo and sneak peek. Now the producers of Gossip Girl, led by show-runner Josh Safran, are revealing more about next Monday's episode in their weekly video preview.

According to the snippets below ...

  • Dan and Blair struggle to maintain their own identities within the confines of a blossoming romance, and try to come into their own when an exclusive club event emerges as an ideal public debut.
  • Lola thinks she has a theory about who Gossip Girl really is - not too surprising considering the timing with which Serena sabotaged her - and sets out to expose her, with Nate helping her out.
  • Rufus and Lily are in real trouble.

Check out the preview of "Salon of the Dead" and comment below:

As usual I agree with you. Relationship between Dan and Blair should not exist. The paradox is that the biggest critic of love between Serena and Dan was exactly Blair. Throughout the love relationship between Serena and Dan, Blair was always jealous of Serena. Because Serena's found the love of her life, and Blair has lost - Nate. When Blair found a new love of her life - Chuck, Serena was totally supported their relationship. However, Blair did not bother to seize the Day in 4 and 5 of the season, knowing what Serena feels for him and that it can destroy their friendship.

@Zoran, actually, I just came across it in one of my notes full of GG quotes. I wrote it down years ago, and the other day, when I re-opened the document after this long period I was actually kinda surprised, since I didn't even remember why I wrote it. The ironic thing is that now this quote just sums up why this "relationship" should actually not exist, in my opinion. (call me close-minded, but that's what I think) @alice, we totally are on the same page. As Blair said in 4x22: "people don't write sonets about being compatible, or novels about shared life goals or stimulating conversation. The great loves are the crazy ones."
I loved the show at the beginning because of all the intrigues it had. Now I just miss the NJBC's schemes, but hopefully I will be satisfied in 5x22. I surely will keep my fingers crossed for GG to return the way it was before.

I'm not a girl - I am a guy. Blair is confused, because Dan is isolated from her friends. I am a big fan of Serena and Dan.

I also agree with you. Great you remembered scene from episode 1x2 when talking Serena and Blair, congratulations. The reason why Dan and Blair are together is that the Dan was at the right place at the right time. In season 4 when they secretly listened to the debate between Chuck and Rejna. Exactly two of them to be friends.

@Alice - you summed up my thoughts exactly, I liked the risk taking of the show before but now it doesn't stand out as an original show that pushed he boundaries of a teen soap. I feel like I've wasted so much time on this show and it's very frustrating as a fan. I think that's how a lot of people feel look at the ratings last episode under a million lowest of the season people are just giving up on it. It's sad.

I agree,Each to his own.I hated wuthering heights and we had it in our course ( oh man).I found Chair similar (but not as torturous as Heathcliff and Catherine). Saying that i liked how chuck handled the dowry situation only thing is let him retain this maturity with Blair if Chair becomes possible again.

(Continued) originally meant to be about. It was meant to be about scandal, sex, shock, and malicious gossip. To me, Chuck and Blair embody these qualities of the show and that is why I love them. Honestly, if you want to see 'cute and perfect holding hands' relationships go and watch the OC or something. That's not what gossip girl is meant to be about. (And I'm sorry but I can't agree with you about the bit about Dan being attractive. Each to his own though.)

See that is another reason I don't like the Dan and Blair relationship. I find it very cheesy. It has been done before. Classic cliché of the rich girl poor boy vice versa hating each other at first for superficial reasons and then getting to know each other and realising they are not that bad. I find this boring. It is the classic 'rom-com' storyline. I honestly thought gossip girl was better than that and I would be very disappointed if Dan and Blair ended up together because I think the writers are capable of more than that. Sure, writing Chuck and Blair is harder because it hasn't really been done before, and that is why I like it. It is something new and different.
I suppose it really depends on the type of literature and storytelling you like. I, for one adore the tragic romance novels and this is why I love Chuck and Blair. I love the passion and the angst. I don't watch gossip girl to see 'cutesy holding hands' and I don't think that was what the show was originally meant to be about. It was meant to be about scandal, sex, shock, and malicious gossip. To me, Chuck and Blair embody these qualities of the show and that is why I love them. Honestly, if you want to see 'cute and perfect holding hands' relationships go and watch the OC or something. That's not what gossip girl is meant to be about. (And I'm sorry but I can't agree with you about the bit about Dan being attractive. Each to his own though.)

Frankly speaking before seeing this episode i had read the comments here and i was apprehensive about the scene on mets but while watching the episode i found it beautifully done and at least for me it was perfect and a short and sweet way to show Blair that even with a zirconium? tiara(I am not sure) she can rock UES.I found it more to be about letting the idea of being princess to Monaco go.well that is how i saw.Thanks for explaining your point of view but i respectfully disagree.

@ dair123: he was the one that resented the whole highschool monarchy thing in the first 2 seasons and he was obviously thinking the same at the beginning of college. If he wanted to console Blair he could have sit down with her and talk to her to, I don't know, tell her there were better things in her future or more important things in her life, instead of giving a last miserable (since it didn't look dignified, Oscar de la Renta dress or not, which btw with which money it was paid, allowance money from Lily?) push to her childhood fantasies that had caused her to be a divorcee at 21 years old.
