I love the way the Chair wedding happened. Jack was right, it was twisted but very "them." To me this whole episode made Chuck and Blair look like this team that will always be in trouble and drama but nevertheless a team. The only thing Chuck and Blair ever needed to learn was how to trust their love and connection and how to treat each other. They finally learnt that. The rest of their lives are now filled with excitement and twisted drama TOGETHER with a family. They are messed up, unusual people who found their own way to a conventional ending. Adorable <3
I just feel like dying inside over how hot Chuck looked in the final episode. Especially in the hotel room scenes with Blair. I melted.
I wish Chuck wasn't bluffing that time he said he would unleash his attack dog on those two annoying teenage brats.
The thing is, we should hate Dan for being GG all along but it only made me love him. I have a friend who went from a Dan-hater to a Dan-lover within the hour.
I wish they got rid of those two annoying girls who called the cops on Chair and instead put in some more of the 5 years later, the Chair wedding or even more to the flashback. Those girls were irrelevant. The police would have found Chuck and Blair eventually, it didn't matter when. The result would have been the same.
I have played Jack Bass saying "I have terrible news. Bart's dead" about 36 times and laughed everytime.
Georgina and Jack remind me of Chair in the season 1 finale, creeping around everywhere, scheming and joining forces in a war. They're perfect together. Like two villains who can stay quirky and never mature but still manage to find love LOL. I love them.
I wish Eleanor let go of Henry so he could chill with his parents instead of his grandparents. It's more important to me damnit! But that "Daddyyyyyyyyyyyy" was priceless <3
There are no plot holes for Dan being Gossip Girl. Don't you see? He WANTED to make himself be part of the drama, no matter the cost. He created this word and held the strings, and then inserted himself in it. That was his main objective in life. He couldn't help but want to belong, more than even Jenny. Like Vanessa said,
Amazing finale. I'm so happy with it. I honestly felt so honoured as a fan after watching it. I can't even feel sad that the show has finished because I'm still blown away by the final episode. I love Jack Bass. I loved Blair saying "Cyrus, it IS enough." I loved the purpose for Dan being Gossip Girl. I loved Nate being sexy, successful, powerful AND single. I loved Chuck getting a happy family ending. I loved Blair being on top of the world. I loved Serena feeling fulfilled and happy.
THANKYOU! It was a good episode. I'm not really sure if I can think of any problems. As long as Gossip Girl delivers heightened senses of reality and crazy drama, it's doing it's job. Leave realisticness and normalcy for One Tree Hill and Glee. I have a feeling that this has been building since Bart's first death.
Chuck TRIED the heroic thing. He got on the plane to protect everyone. Nekminnit he had to escape before he fucking died at the hands of his own father. If Bart had succedeed in killing Chuck, Blair and many others wouldn't be far behind.
If he can try to kill his own son, what else is left for Bart to do? He's done the worst. He's that ruthless. He'll just go on a killing spree and kill everyone else off. The only option was to let the guy die. What the heck would you do in a situation like that?
I liked it. I get that no one could really pick up on the "Charade" thing but I don't see why the scene was therefore labeled as stupid. When Chuck and Blair had sex for the first time, they made the footage all "old cinema" like. In 1x04, they played Breakfast at Tiffany's music throughout parts of the episode because of the initial dream Blair had. It's just adjusting elements of a scene to make it Old Hollywood. Anyone could see that the music was Old Hollywood because of the dream Blair had at the beginning. The music in the rooftop scene was used in a rooftop fight in the movie "Charade." This show has been influenced by Old Hollywood all along. I love the experimentation.
Everyone that I watched it with don't blame Chuck at all for what he did and I think he was 100% justified. He was protecting his family and friends. The only thing we were concerned about was Chuck and Blair going to jail. I think some people felt sorry for Bart a little at his death when there is no way that you should. This man has killed other people's fathers. Think about that. Their family's meant something to these men and they were murdered just because Bart commited a crime. Did anyone else feel scared of Bart at all throughout the past 2 episodes or was it just us? Because it has become all too clear that he is a raging monster. If Chuck was to help Bart, he would just be prolonging his own death and possibly Blair and Lily's and other people.
Well I like the episde and so did all my friends. We did a marathon leading up to it and some of the episodes actually connected to the new one itself. The writers have actually been consistent in a lot of ways.
Also, I love the fact Chuck allowed Bart to die. I have no idea why people would think less of Chuck. It's leaning more towards self-defence rather than murder. His father had tried to kill him TWICE and all of his friends and family were in danger. It wasn't slight danger. It was actual fatal danger. Bart deserves this. He had it coming. Everything Bart has said is a lie. Why the hell would anyone have any reason to save him at that point? I'm not even joking when I say that everyone would have happily done the same thing. It will prove just how strong Chuck and Blair's connection really is. The worst thing you've ever done, the darkest thought you've ever had. I will stand by you through anything. I also think that what the writers did was really good because it wasn't a cliche. The cliche would have been Chuck trying to save Bart only to have Bart pull him down to kill him, but then Bart still somehow slipping and dying when Blair helped Chuck. What actually happened was shocking and interesting, even if it's dark. I loved that it was all reminiscent of the Hepburn film Charade, with the same music from the rooftop fight being played in the background. That is so Chair and Chuck. Everything they do is Old Hollywood inspired. It was a cool experimentation by the writers and it hasn't been seen on a teen drama before.
Just because things aren't ending or playing out the way it has been seen on shows like OC and OTH, but instead unique to Gossip Girl and new to the teen drama genre, doesn't mean its complete shit. Its progressive and a change in typical formats of tv shows. I thought it was cool, as a media student.
I loved that Chuck got to say his "i'm a man and you aren't speech." Its exactly what Chuck needed to say and see as his character. Its that conclusion he needed. No more Bart's high expectations or shadow. He witnessed his father crack and fall apart and now Chuck knows exactly what not to become.
