@Chrism, Good Try. Anyway what a one sided relationship. But that is okay, Dan is helping Blair to be the woman she needs to be so that she and Chuck can get back together. Dan is acting ridiculous and when he realizes it he will run fast and far. Since Blair is on a role with this hotel thing...when will she address the fact that she lost a baby.
[b] Guess I'll come back tomorrow as only one person is writing about Dair and changing their screen name. [/b]
LOL! And the person was so obvious about it too.
What a shit show now. Dan and Blair make me want to vom. How can she sleep with Serena's first true love?
Lol. Dan is so gross so is Blair. Poor Chuck I hope he moves away.
@Zoran last time I checked Dan and Serena broke up because of their dishonesty and inability to be there for one another. And they are siblings so that is all kinds of awkward. Also I never said that Blair was innocent for her actions. She has messed up but she is paying those consequences and moving forward. Is it so wrong that Dan is there to support her?
i feel really bad for serena. i mean she's not perfect. she did a lot of mistakes in the past but this is the worst year of her life. i think her attitude towards lola in the end is rooted on jealousy. also, i never thought in my 5 years of watching GG that lily is the mother of all schemers. i mean how evil can she get? serena should take a page on her mother's scheming playbook if she wants to continue screwing over everyone. i agree with the reviewer how low can serena get. i sure would want to find out.
The relationship between Serena and Dan is far deeper and more complex than it will ever be between Blair and Dan. Dan's love of her life, Serena is the love of his life!
I agree completely with you.
You're wrong @ Chrism. For all that has happened in this season Blair was guilty on herself. No one was forced her to marry the man she dislikes. So now she is where she is. As for honesty between Blair and Dan, you are now in the illusion. Well ago of two episodes Dan showed how honest to Blair he is, I think about the signing of the divorce. Dan does not believe anything Blair, and still loves that he is the only right. If Blair is honest as you say, than herself would admitted that she is guilty of a position in which she is located. Serena and Dan have a stable relationship because they trust each other completely. It was built during their relationship. And that's what Dan and Blair do not have. If you do not understand, look again episode from season 2 when Serena was not honest with Aaron. Dan said that she and Aaron have to be honest like them, and Serena agreed. The relationship between Serena and Dan is far deeper and more complex than it will ever be between
Blair DID face her problems not only in this ep but in Back Up Dan when she confides in Dan at the end and in Crazy Cupid Love when she lists all the things they have gone through together. Of course she hasn't always made the best decisions, but she IS owning up to her mistakes. Dan can't make her forgive herself or move on, he can only point out the reasons he loves her and hope she can love herself.
It is no secret that Dan likes to be needed but thats not why he is with her. He first started liking Blair back in mid-season 4 when she was a high powered woman working at W and still called him Lonely Boy. He loves all sides of Blair. I mean the show even made her say "Dan loves me for me" how much more clear can it get that this boy loves her, purely and simply?
lol angry... i totally understand. especially since ive invested years into gossip girl.. the writers have ruined Blair from where she started to now.
i hate Dair more than anything... even more than Vanessa
This episode sucked blair was pathetic as always it's really time for her to live with the decisions she made and stop blaming the others (louis and chuck) god how old is she?.Dan forgave her like the little puppy he is this couple is so PATHETIC AND RIDICULOUS.I am enbarrassed for them.
Jack is chuck's father? I hope he is not.
Rufly? divorce? i don't care about them
Chrism, s5 Blair, unlike her younger self, is simply not willing to face herself. A quote from this essay sums it up: http://bloodyhellgranger.tumblr.com/post/21691080507/assuming-responsibility
"I’m happy that Dan is helping her find herself but I think she should also take responsibility for the things she did that brought her where she is now. She keeps on blaming other people and bringing up things that she already forgave them for (and not taking responsibility for her part) and that’s not healthy."
agreed dr Holland
DAIR FANS SHUT UP.HE DOES NOT LOVE HER FOR WHO SHE TRULY IS. HE LOVES THE SAD PATHETIC BLAIR THAT NEEDS TO BE FIXED. GO WATCH SEASONS 1 AND 2. HE HATED EVERYTHING ABOUT HER AND WAS SO JUDGMENTAL. IT HAS WAYS BEEN CHAIR. CHUCK LOVED BLAIR FOR BLAIR FIRST, WHEN HER OWN BOYFRIEND DIDN'T. DAN AND BLAIR ARE SO DISGUSTING. CHAIR FOREVER TRENDS WORLDWIDE ON TWITTER EVERY MONDAY. I HATE DAIR FANS I KNOW MORE THAN HALF OF YOU GUYS PROBABLY CHIMED INTO THE SHOW IN SEASON 4 OR 5. THOSE OF US WHO ARE TRUE FANS AN HAVE WATCHED THE SHOW FROM THE AIR DATE COULD NEVER SHIP DAIR. ITS A DISGRACE AND A JOKE. BLAIR CONFESSED HER UNDYING LOVE FOR CHUCK ON HER WEDDING DAY. THAT WAS ONLY A HANDFUL OF EPISODES AGO. I HOPE THE WRITERS ENJOY CATERING TO 14 YEAR OLD AUDIENCES WHOSE PARENTS JUST STARTED LETTING THEM WATCH TEEN SOAPS THIS YEAR. IM OUT. SORRY FOR CAPS.
I think ppl are losing sight of Dan's flaws. I mean I know that this episode showcased Blair in a bad light, but Blair does a lot for Dan too in her own way. She doesn't take his BS like Serena did. He is an extremely proud and judgmental person. But because of Blair's influence, those flaws about himself are overcome. He is the most mature person on the show and while Blair has had many setbacks, I do think they are equals. They are good for each other.
The main difference between Blair and Serena is that Blair is honest with herself and owns up to her flaws and mistakes, Serena hides behind excuses like family, love interests and her job. More than anything Dan needs someone who is honest. Blair is what he needs.
@ Dr. Holland
I agree with you @ Dr. Holland, about Blair and Serena. You are totally right about their friendship. Also, you're right that it is missing the essence of the series - and this is the story of all the characters, their families, their friends and of course their love problems. This is what from season 1 and 2, which made this series is one of the most popular. If they want to save the series producers and writers need to return on that, and not to make up stupidity like Dan and Blair.
(Sorry, my comment was cut)
The Van Der Woodsen's SL was OK. JUST OK... too messy. How could this HUGE NEWS (that had been covered since the appearence of Ivy) be resolved IN ONE EPISODE? I did feel bad about Serena being betrayed by his dad but, let's face it... SERENA IS REALLY STUPID.
I LOVE DOROTA, but she needs to learn to hide magazines better. She was only shadowed by SERENA "ZERO PRIVACY" VAN DER WOODSEN!! So you just happen to have GOSSIP GIRL SITE'S INFO STARING OUT OF A NOTEBOOK?
Really? REALLY SERENA??? REALLY?
Plot holes everywhere. EVERYWHERE. HORRIBLE EPISODE!!
I now this show is known for their characters being stupid once in a while... BUT THE PRIZE (OF ALL TIME) HAS TO GO TO IVY DIKENS, FOR DOING THE MOST IDIOTIC, STUPID, CRAZY AND PLAIN DUMB THING: TEARING THAT ONE MILLION CHECK APART. MOTHERCHUKING DUMBASS!
Hated GG tonight, I'm sorry, but that's the true.
I'm sorry, I had to put only 2 stars, for this episode was HORRIBLE TO ME.
What BLAIR did to DAN was EXTREMELY SELFISH. She ruined HIS night and then he just forgave her. She doesn't deserve him and I hope Dan's not the one dropping the L word first, as is suggested on this site. And besides FORMER QUEEN B's behaviour tonight reminded me of that episode on SEASON 2 (The Grandfather)
CHUCK's mom is her mom and her new mom is not her mom AND his dad is not his dad but his uncle? Ehmmmm... WHAT? POINTLESS.
NATE IS THE WORST JOURNALIST EVER... except maybe for DIANA. How could she NOT see that Nate was snooping around? How could not Nate just asked the doorman to give him a call when Diana came into the hotel lobby to warn him? COME ON!
The Van Der Woodsen's SL was OK. JUST OK... too messy. How could this HUGE NEWS (that had been covered since the appearence of Ivy) be resolved IN ONE EPISODE? I did feel bad about Serena being betrayed by his dad but, let's face it... SERENA I
@ G. Sparks
You're right @ G. Sparks, I completely agree with you. Frustrated writers treat their frustration over us viewers, a disgrace. Every day my observations that I have put forward are becoming true. Dan is in love with an illusion, called Blair. Sooner or later, Blair will leave the stage hurt girl, that Dan has a weakness. When this happens, Dan will lose their illusion, and will want to return to love of his life - Serena. But I'm afraid it will then be too late. Stupid writers, the only real love relationship in the series - Serena and Dan!
Also, after reading this essay, (http://blairhappiness.tumblr.com/post/21592195422/the-fact-that-the-writers-havent-explained-blairs), I think I get what Dan has done for Blair, and why he fell for her. I'm a Chair fan who has a soft spot for Dan, so I'm not unreasonable.
What I do not get is what Blair does for Dan. Tonight, she was positively insulting toward him in a way that she hasn't been to any other man she's been with. Perhaps it's just my dense Chair shipping brain that doesn't get why that is healthy, but tonight, I felt she was wrong for what she did and said.
One more thought: I wish that Dan had been an iota as forgiving of Serena's flaws as he has been when it comes to Blair's.
DAN AND BLAIR ARE JUST SOOOO SWEET!
One of the greatest strengths of Blair's character used to be her capacity to forgive. She forgave Serena and Nate for the Serenate hookup (when they were both drunk at 15) and it made me love Blair. I thought that she'd finally forgiven Chuck, too, several times. But we have to keep hearing about the IP.
Blair in this episode is still being her GG graduation label - weak. She is blaming Chuck and Louis for her current woes, and looking at Dan as her white knight. That's not the hallmark of a healthy relationship. Blair needs to take responsibility for HER role in what has happened to her this year. Where she is today is a result of her actions and choices. Dan is enabling Blair in her childish delusions. Neither are at their best with each other. Dair needs to end.
Dr. Holland you are a star.
Two Viviers, I completely agree. As much as I liked Chair in the first two seasons, what I liked best about this show was that it had a strong ensemble cast who all had very interesting stories. You got to see their families, and learn a bit about WHY they were the people who they were.
I miss the HEART of Gossip Girl, which was the friendship between Blair Waldorf and Serena van der Woodsen. One of the BEST scenes in GG history was not Dair or even my OTP, Chair. It was BLAIR and SERENA on the helipad at the end of 1.13. In 13 eps a far better team of writers than the current ones completely rebuilt the SB friendship from betrayal to sisterhood. "Stay and fight" S told her.
What's with the Chuck has no parents thing. Is that really the only storyline they can do for him. I remember way back in the pilot his mother was alive. I get it was a pilot but still. She's alive, she's dead, she's me, she's you...really? Now it's whose your Daddy (insert roll eyes smiley here).
@ Zoran - You are so right, Dan had totally manipulated his way into Blair's life. I mean, I am sorry but the only reason that Blair ever considered Dan as an option was that he gave her an ultimatum that either she and he become more than friends or he wont be her friend at all. It just is forced. Its very very forced and unnecessary. I just think that Blair needs to really focus on herself and remind herself that she isnt Serena who needs a guy all the time saving her from being lost, she was supposed to be Hilary Clinton or Indra Nooyi. I am just ranting, but what has happened to this show!
