Ivy and William are probably going to turn to Juliet for help. She actually succeeded in her revenge and got away with it. My friend loved her and thought her storyline was awesome. I have mixed feelings but I will always maintain that I felt sorry for Juliet. There are certain people who deserve the wrath of the NJBC but Juliet was not one of them in my opinion. I feel the same way when I read fanfictions where Dan and Vanessa are cast out and hated by the NJBC. That really makes the author look like they haven't watched the show properly and are taking a pretty shallow approach to it. The only time Dan was a fuck-up was when he was chasing Blair to run away from Serena. Even now, because he explained himself in a reasonable way, I've forgiven him. I was angry at him in my past posts because I knew he was being an idiot about Blair and perhaps taking his rage at Serena too far. But did anyone notice how refreshing it was to watch Dan and Serena be light, helping each other to grow and be good people the way they always have? Amidst all that betrayal and the Bart Bass shadow over everyone in the episode, they were lovely. I'm not jumping to hating Dan for writing about Serena just yet, because he could be writing something good about her. He wrote good stuff about Chuck. It really is Inside Out if he attacks Blair and Nate and is nice to Serena and Chuck. I think Dan is still unsure of whether Serena is Sabrina or not, and seeing her with Steven in the next episode may affect him more than she realises.
Another thing. People have mentioned that the apologies were rushed. But I don't know. To me, the people making up have just as much of a good history as a bad one. No matter what it is, Blarena and Derena have had too much of a history to drag their disagreements out any further. The apologies were acceptable. They said what needed to be said. There's no point in hating each other more over one night in comparison to the lifetime they've had together
Okay I just finished the episode over here in Australia.
OMG honestly one of my favourites from this season. I must admit the season had a slow start but I think it was building up to these last couple of episodes.
The acting was EPIC. What stood out to me most was Ed and Chase this episode. That scene at the bar where Nate said "he got to me." Chase honestly hit his peak. And the way Chuck responded. You could feel the tension and emotion. It was real. And when Chuck approached Lily with that look of complete and utter pain because of her betrayal. My heart broke for him. Ed really knows how to get a person emotionally involved with his character.
I love the direction they are going with when it comes to Chuck and Chair. I feel like everyone has misunderstood Chuck's need to prove himself and thought it was overrated. But the way he spoke to Blair and said stop lying to yourself. It's just one of those moments where you see the real torment inside Chuck. You can see every issue he has finally coming to the surface. His self-loathing issues, his trust issues, his abandonment issues. And Blair is the polar opposite of hating yourself, not being loyal and giving up on people. She's the perfect antidote to Chuck's pain. It's why they suit each other beautifully. It brings out this strong, loving, "partner-for-life" side to her. It brings out Chuck's vulnerable yet romantic side. I read a fanfic that described them as equals yet polar opposites. And that is exactly how they are portrayed in their final scene of the episode.
I wish someone had said this to Blair at some point during her relationship with Louis. Fuck, her whole "Chuck makes me depressed and joyless" phase was so annoying. It basically gave Dair fans all the ammunition they needed. They don't seem to realise that Blair hasn't known what she's wanted for a while and most of what she says is a cover up for her real feelings. The Season 5 finale meant so much to me because Blair finally realised that Chuck has made her happier than ever.
it was just a HORRIBLE place. you couldn't even make one logical comment about anything CB/against dair because there was like probably 3 people here that were total psychos and all backed eachother up within bloody SECONDS of you making a post!!! I felt so sorry for the people supporting CB who tried to even voice their opinion, coz the nutters back then were just ridiculous
Couldn't agree more. I seriously do not remember a time when we all attacked a Dair fan for posting their honest, respectable opinion here. I know everyone else believes in the "we're all as bad as each other in a ship war" theory, but I'm sorry, I really believe that on this website there has been so much more anger and unfairness coming from about 3 specific Dair fans. There are two kinds of comments. One kind of comment is asking something about the show and opening discussion. That's fine. That's what forums are for. Then there are people who leave off the hand comments that make people feel like SHIT for posting anything at all. FINE, hate Chuck or hate Blair or hate Dan. That's fine. Everyone is hère to express that hatred or love for the show and its characters. But don't attack real people who are commenting here. It's so disrespectful and its actually stopped people from posting here.
Tbh, the way Chuck said "Task me Blair" in his husky voice made me flustered. 6x03 was magical.
I don't know, most of the time it seems like they're trying to fix their own problems on their own.
we had one ep where blair helps chuck. and one ep where chuck allows blair to help him. other than that they haven't really been working as a team =/ and until they figure out how to work together as a team without going behind each other's backs and without putting their relationship at risk, i'm not going to think they've fully matured as a couple
Thats the thing, they only ask for help in obvious ways. They don't go behind each others backs or involve each other more than what is acceptable. They've found the midway and balance to helping each other. It's either let them figure it out on their own or let them offer to help each other face to face and not through a sneaky scheme. I really think that it is consistent with their relationship's journey and storyline. It's like they've found a solution and have matured in time for the final season.
As much as we love watching sexy Chair, you have to admit that seeing them abstinent is actually proving a lot about their relationship's strength.
Hi Charlie welcome :)
I do think that Chuck and Blair have progressed as a couple, especially if we compare it to Season 3.
If you watch Season 3, you see that they have all this love for each other and don't know how to really make their futures work while having that love between them. If you watch Season 6, they realised their problem and are taking steps to still be there for each other but at the same time not drag each other down in a dark and desperate moment. Does that make sense? Instead of doing sneaky, evil things to each other in desperation to save their futures, they've learnt to work together as a team to beat obstacles. They also don't allow each other to turn dark and desperate. When Blair was drinking and tried to sleep with Chuck, Chuck didnt let her go down that path. I think Blair is going to do the same with Chuck when he feels really down in the dumps about Bart in 6x08.
Okay so Bart IS going to make a deal with Chuck where he has to go on a plane. And Bart will order that plane to crash. For some reason Chuck doesn't get on the plane, but finds out what Bart tried to do. Hence Blair and Chuck not helping Bart when he's hanging off the edge of that building
