Serena is a muse and inspiration for Dan. However, now follows the question that was still unanswered, why is Blair the main star in the novel Inside? It has not yet been clarified by a series of writers, perhaps in season 6!
Of course I disagree, because we are on opposite sides. However, you completely missed. Blair was not the inspiration for the Dans novel Inside. Remember when Dan began writing the novel Inside, if you watched the show from season 1. To help you, Dan began writing a novel Inside at the beginning of season 2, when he went to Hemtone to reconcile with Serena. Dan admitted to Serena that she was the inspiration for his novel in episode 5x5 or 6x5. When Serena and Dan talked about the film rights to the book Inside. Then, at the beginning of season 2, Dan had a blockage in the writing, as now, and did not get a recommendation from their mentor for college. Simply, Dan was not able to write anything all summer, because he felt that he should not break up with Serena. Flaring up again Love between Serena and Dan at the beginning of season 2 broke a Dan blockade in writing. Serena is a muse and inspiration for Dan. However, now follows the question that was still unanswered,
@Zoran: Once again you say that Dan is in love with an illusion of Blair but fail to provide any evidence to substantiate your claim. Dan has no illusions about Blair, as evidenced in "Despicable B". He is fully aware of who Blair is, he has been for a long time. He was the first person to see the Blair hiding behind the facade of Queen B. He loved the Blair wanting to be a powerful woman and he loved the Blair lost in the mess of her life. He loves every single aspect of Blair and that is a fact.
Your next point about Dan having insecurities has already been answered by me but it looks like in your eagerness had the better of you.
"This experiment has reduced audiences for the series, with 3.5 million in season 2 to 2.5 million in season 3." How are Season 3 couples responsible in the decline of audience of S3 premier. And anyways S3 was Chair season, so the subsequent decline in numbers from S3 premier onwards hardly lies on the couples you mentioned because they never lasted long
@Zoran: Once again you are pointing to some facts selectively and presenting your views based upon that, without actually providing any substantial arguments. Once again I will try to dispel your notions generated from your biased understanding of the scenarios.
Your point that Dan's creativity is being hampered by his relationship with Blair is baseless. That girl has been his inspiration for a whole novel. I would counter that nothing inspires Huphrey as much as the sun rays passing through Waldorf's hair. But that's neither here nor there and without any factual proof and so is you point.
Now we totally not understand. Of course that it is a healthy communication between two people is required, but Dan does not believe Blair anything about Chuck, although Blair constantly assures him that there is nothing! The two were always together, yet the Dan still does not believe her. Dan can not tell Blair that he followed her when she was with Chuck, because then she will be angry with him. Which means that Dan is completely insecure in relation to Blair, and he wants complete control over her, so at least I understood that . If again I was not clear, then we have different opinions about the course of action in the series.
But my point is that Dan has to believe his "girlfriend" about everything, and about ex-boyfriend, but Dan does not do that. Rufus gave him advice in the last episode that he should believe Blair, but Dan did not obey, but he went to follow her. As for Olivia, maybe I was not clear. I thought of experiment series producer - Dan and Olivia, Dan and Vanessa and Nate and Serena in season 3. This experiment has reduced audiences for the series, with 3.5 million in season 2 to 2.5 million in season 3.
I am a regular viewer of series, from season 1! Immediately to emphasize that I am a big fan of Serena and Dan! Carried away by my referring was to Dan blockade in writing. Of course Dan and Blair would be doing in Rome what they do in NYC - talking about books or watching movies! Dan has a blockage in the writing and his relationship with Blair does not help him to overcome. But as you know, Dan already had a blockage in writing, at the beginning of season 2, when Serena helped him to overcome the blockade! Evidence that Dan is in love with the illusion are here, in previous episodes. Dan is in love with an illusion - Blair, Blair in what she is not. Dan does not believe anything Blair! That two people who are in a relationship is not enough to love or common interests, there must be a confidence, which in this case does not exist! Of course Dan is insecure to Blair about Chuck. But my point is that Dan has to believe his "girlfriend" about everything, and about ex-boy
@Zoran: "Dan can not talk to Blair about his insecurities, because that way only further distanced himself from Blair. Or Blair realized that she was with the wrong guy, and then returned to Chuck." You think that a girl is going to dislike a guy who believes in honest communication and loves her so much that he is willing to open his heart to her. That defies conventional wisdom, to put it mildly.
The fact my friend is that selective finger pointing isn't going to help you prove your point. Neither is bashing a character a way to present your argument. Next time before you write to me, I would suggest you to come up with solid facts and arguments, not a flimsy rant. See you when I see you.
@Zoran: ex again. I find it very normal to have such insecurities. That's why people take time to work on their relationships, so that their can be no doubts before they say I do. Blair didn't take her time with the Prince and she paid the price. No Dair fan is saying that Dan and Blair don't need to work on their relationships.
"Now you mentioned Olivia, who was a stupid experiment produced of the series in season three, which led to a series of setbacks." What setback are you talking about? They had a pretty smooth going until the threesome, which happened at the time when she was going away anyway. My point was that he never had any insecurities about her, despite of her being a movie star and rumors about her and Bloom, but now he can't even talk to Blair with whom he had a pretty solid friendship about his insecurities. I said that I find that hard to believe but instead of giving a valid argument, you write nonsense like that argument. Its pretty pathetic to say the least.
@Zoran: "Dan is in love with illusion and the illusion falls apart, so he makes mistakes." He has been with her when she was down and out. When people stick by you at the times when you really need them, then they become so close that they know each other inside out. If they have had any illusions about each other then those are broken at those times. To think that Dan has any illusions about Blair is idiotic to say the least.
"Dan is insecure about Blair, and he does not believe to her anything." As far as I can understand, you mean to say that Dan does not trust her with Chuck and is insecure about their relationship. Is that not human nature? He knows Chuck and he knows Blair. He knows that it will be pretty hard to find two people with that much history, whether good or bad is debatable but there is no denying that they have a history together that Dan is aware of. Is that so hard to imagine that he may have some insecurities about the girl he loves getting too close to her ex aga
@Zoran: Your comment doesn't even deserve a reply but I will grace you with one. "But what would Blair do with Dan in Rome? Dan was supposed to go to Rome for a seminar on literature, Blair would only bother him." First of all its not a seminar, its a summer artists retreat. But I will forgive the slight as you seem to be a serial commentator but a casual watcher. And what would Blair do with Dan in Rome? I don't know maybe enjoy some time together, do things that couples do on holidays. "Blair would only bother him." Really? He loves her, and he is going to be bothered by her. That guy dated 'OH the world revolves around me' Serena, I think he can handle Blair, whom he loves, and has been a good friend to.
From where now Carter Bejzen? The actor who plays him did not appear on the set this season. In addition, if it is something to Serena, Carter is a gambler who just wants the money that has Serena. Serena was with Carter just because of guilt, because Carter was helped her to find her father. For Serena to be happy, she needs Dan, and nobody else. After all, Serena has changed, faithfully waiting for the love of her life (Dan) all season alone! As for Lily and Rufus, their marriage is not valid now, because Bart was still alive. But this is not a problem for the two of them, they were happier when they were no married.
But what would Blair do with Dan in Rome? Dan was supposed to go to Rome for a seminar on literature, Blair would only bother him. But Dan asked Blair for a scholarship, and she said that he should go to Rome. So this is where Dan is in love with illusion and the illusion falls apart, so he makes mistakes. You're wrong, there is shown the real character of Dan. Dan is insecure about Blair, and he does not believe to her anything. Now you mentioned Olivia, who was a stupid experiment produced of the series in season three, which led to a series of setbacks. Dan can not talk to Blair about his insecurities, because that way only further distanced himself from Blair. Or Blair realized that she was with the wrong guy, and then returned to Chuck.
And I feel the writers were tempted to call it Raiders of the Lost Bart...but that would just be a spoiler and then we wouldn't get that bombshell of an ending ;) I don't remember the early episodes too well (like I don't remember if Jack and Bart were ever in the same scene together) but if they weren't...I have a theory that Jack and Bart are the same person? Anyone think this is legit?
Ok, seriously...I agree with some people that Dorota could be Gossip Girl...haha most probably not but she is the most likely candidate out of all the major characters imo...
Also, why do I feel like Carter Baison has something really important to do with this episode? Lol...just a feeling I get...what with the brothel and tattoos...Also, just the thing to pick Serena up ;) Or at least make her life a little more interesting.
Haha btw can't wait for the next Georgina Sparks episode! And yeah, before Dair got together I always wanted them to, just to see how it would work out...but the writers have honestly made it look soo pathetic! And the chemistry between Chair is so good ;) I neeed Blair to tell Chuck she wants him back!
Love the resurrection of Bart btw!
On a side note: whoever plays Diana obviously can't even do a half decent British accent...Also curious to see what happens between Lily and Rufus now?
what i find weird is the fans that want a realistic relationship? okay gtfoh... gg- the scandelous lives of manhattan elite. why are u watching the show if u want it to be, like lil house on the praire with donut saving the day. @ffs- okay the show is about UES life....bye bye donut, go dip your self in a cup of coffee. and write about it,lol at donut in the taxi stalking,,,,,, that made my week,,,, lets see.blair will it be chuck-sexy , or ew!---a donut who cant afford sprnkles. hahahah. u know what donut will live!\\\\\\\\\\dddddddonut dan=donut, donut,donuts,
This was just plain bad writing. Why didn't Dan ask Blair to go with him? Or talk with her about it before declining the offer? That was so out of character. Dan dated Olivia who was a movie star and never had any trust issues but suddenly with Blair who has been a great friend too, he can't talk about his insecurities. I find that pretty difficult to believe.
Congrats GG. With the return of Bart from the dead, you are officially a daytime soap now. Everything related to Chuck has been too soapy lately. As someone said in comments, Season 1 Chuck will vomit all over you if he were to see what you have done with his character.
With these comments on Serena and Dan I totally agree! Of course Dan is supposed to return Serena, and to save her not to cross to the dark side. Dan would be able to help himself, because currently he has a blockage in writing the book. We all know that Serena is his muse and inspiration. The only way for everyone to be happy and satisfied is that: Serena and Dan are together and Chuck and Blair belong together. Anything else leads to conflict and dissolution of friendships. Serena and Dan are made for each other, and both like the same - to write. Serena makes Dan a happy and satisfied, as Dan makes the same for Serena! Serena is love of his life, and Dan is love of her life!
I agree with you, sorry if you misunderstood me. I have watched all her films except the last two new and I think that Blake Lively is one of the most talented young actresses in Hollywood, plus she is beautiful as a goddess, and the dream of every man. It's really unbelievable that the writers wrote such a bad story for Serena this season. But even though, Serena is still shining. Of course now the question is, where does all this, because Serena is now alone, not on whom to rely, and everything is possible. If any word about suicide, but I think it is excessive, it looked like a repeat of 1 or 4 seasons. Then we come to the main, who will save the beautiful Serena - Dan (which I quite liked), or maybe this new character (Devlin)? Serena out of the series would certainly lead to a complete cancellation of the series, and I hope that nobody comes to mind!
i think dan should just go back to serena's arm. he can still be an artist and observe the crowd and still be part of the elite through serena. plus, dan makes serena happy and that way he's also pulling serena out of the darkness. because if he is with blair he will then have to choose if he's gonna be part of blair's world or not and we all know it wouldn't be blair's world without chuck in it. and thus if dan chose to be with blair he will always feel threaten knowing chuck is lurking in the shadows. so the best choice for him is serena and he'll be assured that he's the one.
@Zoran i'm not bashin on blake lively. i'm actually defending her against all the people who think she's so terrible because honestly i saw all her films except "accepted" and i think she was really great in them. and i agree with you that it is the writers fault that serena is somehow a terrible character but despite all that i really like serena and i hope tati is wrong about the suicide thing because it also crossed my mind and i think gossip girl with a dead serena van der woodsen will further decrease its viewership. it's just unimaginable thinking serena is not there.
We finally understand @ Lorrain. Now you understand my point. As far as morality is superfluous to mention in this series.
@ Lorrain we are not understand to well. You talk about when a woman's husband disappears at sea or at war, and he has goon a few years, then WOMEN THROUGH THE COURT FINDS HUSBAND DEAD, in order to receive a pension or something else. She does not know whether her husband was really dead, because he is missing. It is well known in the jurisprudence of the world. Of course after a court decision that a husband is dead, she has the right to remarry. But here in the series is not the case. Bart has fake his death, and Lily became a widow. Barts death and their marriage ceases to be valid, so Lily could marry Rufus. But as Bart is alive, everything that happened after his fake death ceases to be valid. Of course now, Lily has the right to seek annulment of marriage or divorce with Bart, because he made a fraud. Each court shall expressly to annul the marriage between Lily and Bart.
I still think Blair and Dan have a mature,well-balanced relationship. She was honest with him about the scheming. One thing though, Dan should have said yes to the Rome opportunity. No good will come from that decision.
