Gossip Girl Spoiler: What's the Latest Obstacle For Dair?

by at . Comments

Dan and Blair are going strong on Gossip Girl, but a new obstacle awaits.

One that is not named Chuck Bass. Or their vastly different social status.

E! Online teases this new challenge for Dair by saying only that much, but we think we have a fairly good idea what it is. In "Raiders of the Lost Art" (April 30), Dan is offered a prestigious fellowship in Rome for the summer.

There's also talk in recent weeks that Dan will make a sacrifice for Blair.

Think that's it? Will he take it and leave Blair behind? Will he stay behind for the sake of their relationship? Will they go together? Does this have nothing at all to do with the obstacle facing them? Tell us what you think.

Also, apparently Serena will have a love interest before season's end. In fact, she may even have more than one. Share your thoughts on that little teaser and all things Gossip Girl in the comments below ...

Rare are young people in the 20 years that in addition to sex and something else more important in their lives. I think we will not agree, because as I read, to you it is not important of any a couple. Or maybe I'm wrong! But my point is about why Dan and Blair are now a it-couple, when others in my opinion were much better and had more to do. I think it is obvious that most viewers do not want to watch Dan and Blair. Also, I think what Dan and Blair have in common is not enough for a relationship. After all this is a TV series, which is expected drama and a steady stream of action. This is not a reality show in which we see two young intellectuals. You think that the Blair get over Chuck, this is not true. On the other hand, if it is true, then the series is over and there is nothing more to be seen. For if the producers decided that Dan and Blair are a couple that will end at the end of the series, then we have nothing more to see.

At no point did I say Dan and Blair were perfect because unlike most shippers I don't watch the show with blinkers on. All I was pointing out was your erroneous comment regarding them having nothing in common. I am sorry that you think that just because they are in their 20s that sex is the be all and end all because I think two intelligent people, regardless of age, would realise that a relationship needs to be built on more than that. The fact that the first time they had sex wasn't great means very little in the long term. Looks like they're over that hurdle now and the fact that the show isn't showing us them at it like rabbits is because they're attempting to show us something different with the relationships. As stated previously I have enjoyed all the ships for varying reasons but I also want to see the characters change. Also I think it would only be natural for dan to be concerned about chuck given chairs history but I dont think the reverse can be said about Blair and Serena. I don't believe Dan has been thinking romantically about Serena for well over a season.

Serena and Dan are not brother and sister. They have no blood ties. Just because Lily and Rufus in their youth were naughty does not mean that they are brother and sister, but there is always someone finds a clever. Very pathetic!

I agree with you. And I will remain a fan of Serena and Dan. They are the most beautiful couple in love in the series! Of course, Dan and Blair should be just friends, like Chuck and Serena. But the question remains as who are the two guys that Serena will be in a relationship until the end of this season? It would be good to have Nate and Dan, but I think that writers are not so favor for that option.

I did not say that the love relationship between Serena and Dan and Chuck and Blair are perfect. On the contrary, you say that the relationship between Dan and Blair are perfect, which of course is not. You say that it is normal that the partner is concerned about the previous relationship the other partner - yes and no. Depends, if the past relationship ended long ago, then no worries. Now comes the main problem - Dan knows that Chuck still loves Blair, as suspected, and Blair still has feelings for Chuck. Also, Dan still has feelings for Serena, and he knows that Serena still loves him. Now the proof that they are not a perfect match is simple - sex! Bad sex or sex with vodka and whiskey (hahaha). And Dan and Blair have not had problems in sex with other partners. They do not have 70 years so that them sex is not important. Simply they have 20-21 years and sex is to them all!

What you are referring to has nothing to do with two people having stuff in common which Blair and Dan have, more than any other two characters. You are referring to personal traits that most people have when they trust their heart to another person. It is completely natural to have concerns about a partners past loves and worries whether you are making the right choices. The scene where Dan took the divorce papers from Dorota was because he could tell something was up with Blair and he understood her bizarre princess logic later. Serena and Dan definitely had their trust issues when they were together and the only times I ever felt that Blair was fully comfortable with a relationship with Chuck was the end of S2 and in the limo before the crash. The rest of the time their relationship was
on tenterhooks.

Blair and Dan have nothing in common, which is the basis for the relationship. They, of course, have a common interest - love books, movies and art in general. But that's not enough to be lovers. As part of any love relationship is trust. Do they have – they do not. Dan does not believe Blair anything when it comes to Chuck, it showed when he cheated on Nate (and is not difficult to force Nate to reveal the secret), to discover that Chuck paid the dowry. Or when he snatched the papers for divorce from Dorothy. This is enough evidence that Dan is in love with the illusion of what Blair really is not. And Blair has doubts about Dan, but not so much like him. If two people do not trust each other, love will not help any. Unlike these two, Serena and Dan have absolute trust in one another. It was built in the past.

Gossip Girl Quotes

And who am I? That's one secret I'll never tell ... You know you love me. XOXO, Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl

Blair: Fashion is the most powerful art there is. It's movement, design and architecture all in one. It shows the world who we are and who we'd like to be. Just like your scarf suggests that you'd like to sell used cars.
Dan: Vanessa gave me this scarf.
