*what keeps me watching...typo
Why keeps me watching? Habit and a desire to see how the story ends. More and more the latter becomes less of a reason to tune in. This last episode wasn't the worst of the season but it was very dull. Serena was at least interesting even if her motivations were all over map. Everything else was painfully boring! I had to laugh at Steve's comment in the review: [we] "can expect fireworks" (in the next episode). This is precisely what GG is lacking. Fireworks. Spark. Buzz. Every episode is stagnant and flat. I almost wish I shipped one of the couples so I could look forward to something. I cannot believe GG will go into 6th season. It's like a horse with a broken leg...sad and breaks my heart but it needs to be taken out back and shot! Unless something radical changes, a 6th season will only continue to ruin good memories of this show.
As for the fairy tale you're right, but the series is not over yet! You're wrong I like Dan when he was with Serena. The character Dan has changed for the worse, he is now worse of Chuck if Chuck can be bad. Dan is still suspicious of Blair, you could see in that scene in Breakfast with Dorothy. Dan did not believe what Blair said, but he takes papers for divorce from Dorothy. You're smart, if I do not know that you cheer for Dan and Blair, I would think you're right. And Chuck is not stupid to be friends with Dan who takes away the love of his life. I see that you do not like Chuck, is that correct? As for that that Dan is in love with an illusion, which then reflects on Blair, I still stand behind it. Proof of this is the scene on the steps of the Metropolitan Museum. Dan and Blair are not children of 10 years, and pretends that they are prince and princess.
Not really. The definition of a fairytale is something that ends good.
Dan and Serena started good but ended badly. And right now, they are far away from each other. Also, you do not seem to like Dan's character and still want him with Serena which still makes no sense.
And see, this is why you can't deny Dan's change in character. Even through all that Blair put him through, he stopped being judgmental but understood her on another level. he is not season 1 Dan anymore. he has no illusions about her.
And Chuck and Dan actually became friends for a while, before "hero" Chuck got his angry/possessive mode on and ruined it.
Dan and Blair are boring, makes one yearn for great Chuck and Blair scenes from seasons past. As Blair said once: stimulating conversation does not make a great relationship, it is the crazy, passionate and intense ones that people want, that is why Chuck and Blair need to end up together with a great storyline ending. This has been building up since season 1 and fans are waiting for it.
Serenate. Chair. Dan is borring... Serena and Nate are so sexy together!
I mentioned a fairy tale of the love between Serena and Dan, and you commemorate something else. I am a big fan of Serena and Dan, and you are not. Blair drove away Dan's sister - Jenny, for no apparent reason. The only reason was because Jenny wanted to be the same as Blair. So, Dan and Blair friends with benefits, should not be together. According to how you described the reason why Blair and Dan are together, then in season 6 should be together Chuck and Dan. For the same reason. Rooting for different pairs, and each has its own view of events in the series.
I don't see Derena as a bad couple but it seems to me like they were never great together beyond the first half of the first season.
Dan and Blair is exactly what the message of the show should be about, if there is any, which is that prejudices and judgments can be overcome with time and that love needs no class boundary. These two were the most judgemental towards each other when the show started but they became so beautifully attuned. I see that Derena is about a guy from Brooklyn and a girl from the UES but they never started with hate, which makes it less appealing.
oh Chuck bought Blair
@ Derena Forever
Finally someone with whom I agree completely! Everything you said is true. I hope you're right for Rufus and Lily, because their divorce opens the door to Serena and Dan to be together! Completely're right Serena and Dan are one of the best TV couples, ever since I watch television. Their story in the series is a true fairy tale - a regular guy from Brooklyn and a beautiful girl from Manhattan are in love. I do not know why people do not like fairy tales, because the TV show is just that.
About something we can agree. Everyone has the right to their opinion. I am not condemning anyone because they do not support the other couple in love. My general criticism relates to the production of the series, not the audience. You're right, and Chuck and Dan have changed. I am still a big fan of Serena and Dan!
Because of the news that Lily and Rufus will be having lots of trouble this season, I think it may be them that will break up. Due to the fact that Blair is obviously going to end up with Chuck in the end, I think Rufus and Lily breaking up will give leeway for Dan and Serena to get back together.
Being a huge GG fan from Season 1, I've always thought Derena was the most pure and amazing love TV has seen in a long time. Every season they have at least one moment where they realize they still love each other.
This season, the worst yet in my opinion, has shown Dan being a complete jerk to Serena. This is not the Dan from the previous seasons, it is completely out of character. As well, the fact that Blair would do such a horrible thing to Serena (which by the way is equivalent to Serena and Chuck falling in love and showing PDA all over New York) not to mention she was one of the biggest Derena shippers of the whole show, is suprising.
I hope the writers will get their shi*t togethe
No we simply have different ships but that does not mean we can't agree on some things. That is, of course, if we are objective. For example, I don't deny Chuck's selfless action and I am a Dair shipper. And as a Dair shipper, I can recognize Chuck has definitely changed from his old self. But also, I can see that Dan has changed too and so has Blair and that does not need any ship to be recognized.
I respect your opinion but I condone anyone blindly bashing characters just because they don't get their way with the ship they like.
I disagree with you. We are on different sides!
You know, you can want Derena without blindly defending Chuck. Saying that Dan is worse than Chuck now is just ridiculous. I don't even know what to reply because it just doesn't make sense. Sure Chuck is a better man but that does not immediately make Dan a bad guy. Moreover, it even makes less sense for you to ship Serena with Dan, a character that you seem to dislike. And Derena were not great together because the worse in both charaters showed throughout their relationship.
Also you seem to deny that Dan and Blair have changed, that they can't be better persons, that he will always be judgemental and that she will.always be a scheming bitch at heart. So far, I think the show has showed quite the episode even before Dair started. Regardless of Dair, we are dealing with different characters. And why cannot Dan be her prince? Please don't say that she is an UES and reserved for Chuck, because I get sick just hearing that argument.
Nice try Zoran but you contradicted yourself. How do you ship Derena if you feel that Dan has the wrong vision of Serena then? Oh so its alright for Dan to be with Serena even if he envisions her as something she is not, while it is not alright for him to love Blair? Funny thing, last time I checked, Dan has learned from his relatiknship with Serena. He knows Blair fully, the good and the bad. I do not see how he is considering her as something she is not, especially at this point in the show. Furthermore, I did admit to Chuck's selfless doing. That makes me far from biased. I judged only the people who hate on Blair and from what I am seeing overall, Dan does make her happier unless of course, you say this is all an illusion that Blair is conceiving in her head about Dan.
Please, again, make accusations that acually have good grounds. I do love Dair but I recognize that Chair and Derena need to be resolved. I do not hate on characters but merely judge them from what we have been giv
RATING 0.98 Million total viewers. THANK YOU DAIR :-D
Not my view is not obscured, on the contrary is yours. You so generously supporting Dan and Blair and do not see errors in that relationship. The main fault is that Dan is in love with an illusion. In particular he was in love with an illusion - Serena and now is in love with another - Blair. Both girls Dan rises in what they are not. Serena was not a goddess. Blair is not his princess, because he is not Prince. In addition, Dan is not honest to Blair, he does not believe her. To be precise - Blair believes to Dan. Chuck good work is good work - very Blair is to say, sending a message of gratitude to free her of marriage. Chuck is no better than Dan, but Dan is far worse than Chuck now. If you do not see this then your look blurry because you're a fan Dan and Blair.
I agree with what you said and this is what I have been to tell people in this page. One good action does not make Chuck a saint and it certainly doesn't make him a better person than Dan. I think some Chair fans just need to find a good enough flaw in Dan to justify their hating him so much.
I disagree once more. Gossip Girl is not knowm for its subtelty. If Blair were ha ing doubts by the end of the episode, we would have been given suggestions of it, especially through her interactions with Dan. But it was not the case and she was honest with Dan, hence the last Met scene. But I know you are Derena-biased so you might not see it as that. I think your sudden defense of Chuck is also a bias. If it had been any other person keeping Derena together, you still would have defended the former lover.
That wasn't a secretary in Nate's office. That was clearly Georgina's voice.
I think the problem is that people are choosing to see only what they want to see especially given some of the unconsidered rants that just descend into slamming a character. Not one of them is perfect and that's what I like about it. Looking back at some of Blairs early eps she is an absolute bint to others but you know it comes from her own deep-seated insecurities and that's why I liked her. Same with Chuck etc although some of the stuff he pulled almost went over my limit. But then it's a TV show and ultimately that's what I take it for - a bit of entertainment.
We agree to disagree! In this episode Chuck did a good deed!
I agree with you. None of the characters is not without flaws. They all envy each other. But each of us in the audience differently sees each of character in the series.
I'm sorry if I was unexplainable. Probably because of the language. It is obvious that English is not my native language. I agree with you that Dan and Blair are unlikely to be together at the end of the series. But this much is completely incomprehensible to the propaganda that led to Dan and Blair when the two were only 3 episodes together. I am glad that we agree about that Chuck did a good deed. On the other hand reaction Blair is expected, but why is that? Now we probably will not agree. Because I think that Blair reacts angrily to Chuck as her conscience tells her that maybe she is with the wrong guy. If Chuck is willing to throw millions of dollars for Blair, then Chuck changed for the better and became what she always wanted . I'm sorry if I offended you, it was not intentional. I thank you called me Dan and Serena fan.
You lot watch this show with blinkers on. To claim that Dan is the only judgmental one and that ridiculous NJBC idea. They all bloody judge, jump to conclusions, accuse each other of crap all the time. Dan judges them for the schemes, entitlement attitudes etc and they judge him for being from Brooklyn and judge each other constantly. It's human nature to do it as often it stems from an individuals own insecurities about themselves and cripes we all they suffer from that.
@Zoran i don't have to 'accept' anything. so, yeah. There was no victory for Chuck.
