I'M SO SICK OF DAN'S DAIR COMMENTS. I actually can't handle him saying that.
He actually persuaded my guy friend to jump to team Dair this week.
I could just break something.
come on guys, tell me this scene didn't bring a smile to your face
This is epic!
That's the thing though. I'm not sure what show everyone else is watching, but from what I can see, Chuck and Blair are together even if they aren't together. They are completely in love with each other. They are together every episode. They help each other out. There aren't any obstacles to their love. Chuck is still maintaining that thing between them, while trying to accomplish his goals.
I'm sure Chuck has also realised that it's his problem too and not Blair's. I know this might not make sense, but even though Chuck saw a therapist and matured in Season 5, it was clear that the dark cloud that is his father is still hanging over him. It's just this fucked up thing that Chuck was never able to get over, and Blair is a beautiful person because she loves all of Chuck, included that twisted part. When he talked about the dream he had about never being able to reach that magnificent skyscraper to buy, its clear that his remaining issue is still with his father. The only way he sees a chance at becoming a peaceful man is to take his Dad down. Maybe it's misguided but it's also understandable right now. He might come to realise that he should just let go of that anger and torment, but it seems that for now its something thats just plagued him all of his life and he sees this as the only way to deal with it.
I think Blair AND Chuck are both going to learn to let go of their hangups and immature anger by the end of this show and go on to do something beautiful.
I also do not understand why everyone is so angry about Blairena?
The fact that they are fighting is actually telling a story about their friendship.
I don't know why people expected 10 episodes of fun filled friendship fluff at all? How is that a good story? There needs to be problems for them to finally figure it out.
Its the same thing with Chuck and Blair. Think of the Season 2 build up. I really think the wait was worth that "I love you too" scene at the end of Season 2. We don't know how the final few episodes will play out. All I know is that each episode, we've been getting lines that I've always wanted to hear coming from Chuck and Blair. It's not meaningful to just put episode after episode of sex and fluff (as much as I'd love it). We're watching a journey and we're being told a story here. I wish we could see the scene where Chair finally give into their desires, especially since neither of them are getting any. But its just not consistent with how the season began. If they do give in, it's got to be because:They've both accomplished their goals The lust is high enough without any interruption or alcohol. Like Blair's neck has to completely catch Chuck's eye or something. It has to be a passionate moment, like the piano hate sex. It can't be a comfort-sex thing. It can't be an "I give up on my future, lets just have sex now" thing. It won't be consistent. What I like about this season is that I actually can't tell which season of Gossip Girl they're answering Chair's problems with or basing it around. I feel like their introduction in Victor Victrola described so much about what Chair wanted for their ending, without them realising it. I feel like we're slowly heading to that happy, free place that they imagined in 1x07. You've got the "waiting because of Chuck's issues" thing from Season 2. You've got them showing that they have learnt how to be in a relationship while their futures are all over the place like in Season 3. You have them waiting for each others futures to be figured out like in Season 4. You also have this aspect of gallant, sacrificial maturity to their love that has continued on from Season 5.
I wish for a Blair/Bart scene. Would be fun to watch.
Leighton Taylor actually always looked the age of their characters. Ed and Blake were only a year or so older than their characters but managed to look 5 years older.
