How did I miss that Blair was gambling her mother's company for Chuck? Is that how she got in the black jack game? She sold the company? Not sure if truth has been skipped over here to prove a point or if this actually happened.
She didn't sold the company. I was rewatching the casino scene and I noticed all her chips are yellow. Yellow chips are worth $2 each, it's a standard in all casionos. So she probably didn't have more than $1000 in there. Chuck's pile was more varied with high-paying chips, he must have had around $15000 in there. So, the idea that Blair sold her mother's company, came with millions of dollars in chips just to bet them once is just an idiotic theory.
I would say bring Carter back for Serena! I really liked this pairing.
I actually liked the finale. At last, we had some scandal, Blair got a prospective great career and finally made up her mind regarding the men in her life, Bart knocked some sense into Chuck, Eleanor was great, Dan character is finally consistent with the previous seasons and it's gonna stir some scandal with his new book probably, Serena and Blair fighting (this was long overdue). The one thing I disliked was that Serena went back on drugs. Also, I'm not quite sure why the writers opted to break up Lily and Rufus.
I feel like the B in that limo with her mother is Season 1 Blair :) I immediately jumped back onto Team Blair when I saw that. It's nice to see her feist is back.

I totally agree with you, WW! I will be happy if season 1 Blair is back in the final season. And I'm really happy she's taking on some serious responsabilities with Waldorf's Designs.
Regarding to the topic discussion, I think Blair's out of character behaviour started in season 3 when the writers made her go to NYU. That was the biggest mistake ever, they should have let her stay out of college for a year and after that she would have gone to Columbia. And in my opinion, if we would have had season 1 Blair in the 3rd season, there wouldn't have been any IP incident. She would have come up with a clever scheme to play Jack and Elizabeth. But the writers had to create drama somehow and that's the best they came up with.
I don't think Blair is gambling her mother's legacy (really, such a big company couldn't be worth so few chips). I think her money are from her trust fund and the gambling it's more of a gesture that he can trust her now and she's not gonna change her decision again.
I just love how the morally superior Dair fans (which considered themselves better than Chair fans or at least that's my impression about most of them) started bashing Chair fans just because their ship sank.
OMG! I didn't know about Savages. THE TRAILER SEEMS SO AWESOME!!!! I love Blake so much in movies. I'm so excited for this movie. I can't wait until it is released here. Kind of lot to wait until autumn :( Oh, well. I still have to watch her in "Elvis and Anabelle" and in "Hick".
My point was that OK, if she never stopped loving him, why did she then keep on dating other men?Read more tv spoilers at: http://www.tvfanatic.com/forum/gossip-girl/general-discussion/serena-and-blair-everything-goes-down-to-them/page-6.html#ixzz1uYlIFJVU
If we apply this logic, one must wonder why did Blair keeps dating Dan if she loves Chuck so much and even more day by day?
Sometimes, I think people have some reasons for dating other people even though they are in love with someone else. I think Serena went to the "what if" road because she really felt sorry for Ben and what he went through and she wondered if maybe Ben was the one and tried to see that. But she soon realized he wasn't and probably took her time to analyze her past relationships and figured out Dan is her true love.
The issue is that Blair has done basically NOTHING to protect Serena's feelings.Read more tv spoilers at: http://www.tvfanatic.com/forum/gossip-girl/general-discussion/serena-and-blair-everything-goes-down-to-them/page-4.html#ixzz1uUzwO27G
You are totally right. Dan is Serena's first love and real boyfriend (not just a random guy with whom she hooked up) and also she still pines over him and wants him back. So, I think it was totally wrong for Blair to start a relationship with Dan without being certain of her feelings (I mean, really, she doesn't love him). If Blair was Serena's BFF, she would have cared more for Serena's feelings even though Serena wouldn't have bluntly said to her "Don't date Dan because I love him" and so, Blair wouldn't have dated Dan. A BFF knows that some things are just off limits (like dating the first love of your best friend).
I think Serena is justified to be mad at Blair. And I would have loved a storyline in which she moves out from Blair's penthouse and starts a full war with Blair. It would have been more fun than her being GG and other boring boring stuff.
@Derena is Love, Sorry! I actually shipped Derena a lot in the first seasons. I thought they were so cute and pretty together in the first season. But I started disliking Dan a lot, so I kind of stopped shipping them unless Dan becomes less douchey.
