This is probably a really stupid question, but I'm puzzled by something about TV ratings. Usually, when the ratings for an episode are high, the credit is given to THAT episode. But don't high ratings mean that people tuned in because the PREVIOUS week was good? So, shouldn't the "credit" be assigned to the previous week's episode, when using ratings to judge which episodes people liked?
Ah well. It was nice while it lasted, but it looks like Blair's two brief episodes of actually being liked and appreciated by a guy are gone. Now bring on the stalking and abuse from her psycho ex! *EYEROLL*
I don't have much hope, because the writers seem to be incapable of NOT shitting on Blair for more than 0.2 seconds, but it would be nice if Louis came back somewhere around the mid-season hiatus. And Blair came to her senses and realized that he's a much better choice than Chuck.
While I'm at it, I'd also like a million dollars and a pony.
Does Eric tell Chuck to GTFO?
Yes, yes he does. Chuck apologizes and says "I'm reformed," and Eric basically tells Lily that Chuck's beyond redemption and he doesn't give a shit what he says now, he's an ass who shouldn't be forgiven (that's paraphrased, but you get the gist.)
I'd love it if they hadn't reunited CB by the end of this season and then whoops! they got cancelled after the season finale, so CB never had a chance to get back together.
i don't like that she said that. I know that it's Blair's character to demean people and make them feel like shit but I think it makes Blair look bad and Eva look innocent.
Well, that's the writers' MO, isn't it. They brought in the Mary Sue to top all Mary Sues just to make Blair look bad, so they could drag her down to Chuck's level. Not that that's POSSIBLE, but they'll do it or get cancelled trying.
I don't give a damn because Eva's too ridiculous to take seriously as a character. They're actually ripping off Pretty Woman with Blair as the Evil Shop Assistant, WTF.
I know a lot of people on this forum hate Chuck, but the truth is the viewers love Chuck. He has been trending on Twitter for like the past 2 hrs. that just proves how popular he is. Obviously most of the spoilers are gonna be about Chair because thats what the majority of viewers like.
OH MY GOD.
The internet audience (by which I mean the number of people participating in forums, messageboards, etc.) is a TINY TINY TINY fraction of the actual viewing audience.
And the Tweeting audience is a TINY TINY TINY fraction of the internet audience.
People online and in fandom and on Twitter always overestimate their own importance. In the real world, the number of people watching for Chuck Bass or Chair is minuscule. What they want is good writing and solid plotlines. That's why the ratings have been falling every season, while the show travels ever further up its own ass trying to pimp Chuck and Chair.
And I wouldn't put it past the rabid Chuck stans to have organized a Twitter party last night to try and get Chuck Bass to trend, because they want to send the message that OMG! Chuck is awesome! *EYEROLL*
It's not that hard to get something to trend on Twitter. It don't mean jack shit.
Don't worry, though, it's obvious that the showrunners share the same delusions as you do, so they'll continue pandering to Chuck's fanbase and sucking the life out of the show.
Did you forget the pedo midget instructor? or when Serena eloped to Argentina with Jack White? the on/off fuckery of season 2?
Exactly. Serena's hopped from guy to guy to guy so often, convinced each time that this is "the one," that whether she ends up with Dan or with Nate, I'm not gonna be convinced.
I feel like I'm having a flash back of Chuck season 3, and Blair is chuck this time and Chuck is Blair.
You're kidding, right?
Sometimes I feel like this fandom deserves Josh and Stephanie's shitty showrunning.
Chuck seems to be happy with Eva. Blair should be with her prince....and everyone's happy... why or why could the writers just not leave it at that for a little tiny while... life isn't fair.
I'd rather Chuck be unhappy and ALONE, and Blair be happy...
I second that because I really REALLY want him back....please, writers?! Although I'm a bit dissapointed since I had hoped they'll have more/longer scenes together in this episode the prince has to come back!!
I'd hoped for more this ep, too, but god FORBID Blair have shippy scenes with a non-Chuck character, right? /BITTER
I hate the way they blandify any possible love interests for Blair (take Cameron, who was a LOT more interesting in 3x19 than 3x21.)
But I hope Louis comes back, too.
Chuck IS a bad person.
