how is anyone asking this question? CHUCK AND BLAIR ARE SOULMATES PEOPLE. please.
dan was the biggest douche ever in this episode. he sends out the video of chuck and blair in the hopes that louis and blair won't get married and blair will forever be mad at chuck. then he doesn't tell SERENA of all people. he's always undermining their friendship, he just can't accept that serena is a lot more important to blair than he is, no matter how much he kisses up to her. S was right: dan wants to keep blair all to himself. and he knows that that's only possible with serena and chuck out of the picture. it's just so creepy and so wrong. and i vote the writers just stop coming up with idiotic reasons to keep chuck and blair apart and instead make blair's line "sorry chuck, we can't be together because it's not the season finale yet". it would make a hell of a lot more sense than a dowry.
and yes, i am a huge fan of mature-chuck. but there's a fine line between mature and completely passive. he should have tried harder. he always used to try harder. if he tried harder, it wouldn't mean he was regressing back to his old ways. he could have tried in a MATURE FASHION. once he knew about blair's pact and knew that she WASN'T going to be happy, that she was only doing it for him, then he should have stopped the stupid wedding, sat blair down and told her that she's insane. but no, he's just standing there. letting the PTSD-girl make the decisions. i do not understand this show any more. i hate the writers who wrote this entire, horrid storyline JUST so they could write their stupid royal wedding and their version of the Runaway Bride. it's disgusting. and contrived.
everyone was so stupid in this episode. i'm amazed. everyone has lost the ability to think rationally. ANY ONE of the people at the wedding who knew it was wrong could have stopped it and yet NO ONE DID. it was so frustrating. if blair is suffering from some form of PTSD then she really shouldn't be allowed to make such important decisions like whether or not to get married. therefore, nobody should really have listened to what she was saying. they should have been good friends and STOPPED THE DAMN WEDDING. serena should have. dan should have. nate should have. eleanor should have. CHUCK SHOULD HAVE. and none of them did. so, so disappointing.
great recap! this episode was full of shitty writing and nothing made sense. everybody seemed to have forgotten what they did in 5.11...or hell for the whole first half of this season. lame.
and yes the miscarriage should have been addressed better. we got to see blair be sad for like 5 seconds and then it's almost as if it never happened. that's just insulting. miscarriage is a big deal, and if they want to write about it then they have to do it right. blair should be SHOWN mourning, it shouldn't just be understood by the audience that she is mourning off-screen. dair affair would be horrible. hope they never go there.
the only good thing about this episode was the derena rekindling. really hope serena is able to remind dan that he's supposed to be in love with her and not blair because derena is, and always has been, BELIEVABLE. the pact with God is lame. and stupid. and not blair at all. hell it's just not GG. i hope they get over this soon. if this is seriously the best way they could think of to keep chuck and blair apart, then it means it's time for them to throw in the towel and just GET THEM TOGETHER. they are so meant to be and this is a lame, CONTRIVED AS HELL, obstacle. all it would take for them to get past it would be for blair to remember that, oh wait, SHE'S NOT RELIGIOUS.
i LOVED chuck and blair! they were epic! so so epic!! WHY IS IT NOT POSSIBLE FOR THE WRITERS TO GIVE CHAIR MORE THAN 30 SECONDS OF HAPPINESS AT A TIME?!?!?!
i liked this ep despite the annoying focus on Chivy. no matter what i do i can't seem to care about her SL...CHUCK AND BLAIR MADE THE EPISODE!!
does chair still stand a chance after last night's episode? the same episode where louis was a douche, dan was a freak, and chuck was flawless? uh, my guess is HELL YEAH. CHAIR FTW
