Rewatching Season 5 and have some things to bring up, let me know what you think:
Just watching 5x03 Chair..their first scene of the season. I noticed that everything about that scene was tense and cautious. They stood far apart and they were careful about what they would say. Nothing was really substantially romantic, except Blair saying that there was a part of her that hoped the baby was Chuck's. Does anyone else feel that the writers were trying to hold off Chair this season until the last moment? Every scene they had together felt too good to be true and I almost felt like Chair shouldn't be there yet? As I was watching 5x10 I felt the sudden fast pace of their reunion and it felt too good to be true.
Also, when you think about it, Season 4 wasn't much different to Season 5. Blair begins with Louis, then almost reunites with Chuck, then begins something with Dan. But despite everything, Blair finds her way back to Chuck in the finale. The only difference is that Blair doesn't have sex with Chuck in season 5 but has sex with Louis and Dan, and Season 4 is the complete opposite to that.
I know the last thing you guys want to think about is Dair but I need to rant a little. Two things that never should have happened with Dair that will forever taint Chair:Blair being sure about her decision to be with Louis after reading the vows that Dan wrote. That was unnecessary, really. Why make it like Dan knows Blair's soul when we know it's Chuck who reads her better than anyone? Ugh. Blair saying she wasn't in love with Chuck and saying her heart didn't belong to him and hinting that it belonged to Dan. It should have been more obvious that Blair was lying or misguided as her diary revealed she was. I understand it's for the sake of suspense and wonder about who Blair was going to choose but her words managed to alienate almost half the viewers. It was too definite to the point where it didn't even seem like there was a triangle anymore. Basically, I'm not asking Blair to beg for forgiveness. Chuck has messed up in ways that are out of this world in the past. Blair can't be held responsible for being afraid to be with Chuck this season. She has had a rough year with events happening out of her own control. But she has ALOT of explaining to do. She needs to SAY that this was why and clarify things a bit better for us. The fact that there was a point this season where Blair chose Dan over Chuck needs a lot of explanation in the next season. The diary wasn't enough to explain everything, it only reached a definite truth about Blair's heart. She doesn't need to apologize, she just needs to explain. I hope we get that, but I doubt we will. This is how I feel about Dan and Serena in a way. Dan needs to explain himself just like Serena needed to explain her romance with Ben in season 4.
I think the suitable thing is for Chuck and Blair to get married in the first episode, but keep it a secret. This way we still get to see Chuck and Blair be sneaky and sexy but we also don't have to wait for them to get married. It's satisfying but entertaining. I know we all are done waiting for the Chairytale to happen. I honestly will not be bored if they got married in 6x01. My friend just said she wants Chair to work for it and seduce each other -_- I don't know what she's been watching for the past 2 seasons but we have been waiting for this reunion for AGES. I'm not interested in waiting anymore. I want them married, I want to see them begin to build their life together. There are 10 episodes left, not 25. There's simply not enough time to wait for a Chair wedding.
"I’m dishing out a blind item that I suspect many of you will find just as satisfying.It concerns a primetime soap that, although popular, came this close to getting the axe at season’s end — and just when a pair of its well-liked lovebirds were heading for a reunion, too. Now I hear that, when the show returns this fall, it’ll pick up right where it left off and pleasantly surprise fans by immediately marrying off the star-crossed couple in question."
Does this mean it will pick up right where Blair said she'll fight for Chuck? Because I actually feel like it's necessary. They can't jump from that moment to the end of summer. It was too much of a cliffhanger
Yes someone else said the same! I changed my password :) Hackers need lives seriously. Did you know my TV fanatic account was hacked as well and now I've been forced to make a new one
I wanted S to be there too! If Serena isn't there I don't think anyone but Chuck and Blair will be there. Maybe Dorota. I can so see them marrying in secret and having a romantic, private ceremony. That is Chuck and Blair's style. I don't want them to run away together and elope, that's more Dan and Serena's style. But I can see their marriage being a secret between the two of them or something.

Questions:While there was a chance that Gossip Girl wasn't going to continue for a 6th season, the writers, producers and actors all along said that there was likely going to be a 6th season. Are there any other primetime soaps that were actually closer to being axed? (e.g. Hart of Dixie I believe?) On these other primetime soaps, are there any other well-liked star crossed lovers that were heading for a reunion? If you can answer no to both of these question with proof, then I believe we have ourselves a Chair marriage ;)
What are the wedding spoilers?
OMG i couldn't possibly wait any longer but at the same time I don't want GG to end.
I have an army of obsessive fan friends who all analyse the episodes as they come out with me!
Bart and Rufus are eerily familiar to Chuck and Dan.
It totally has been some sort of competition between these men for the women they love.
And I'm sorry, there is this part of me that feels that Dan, like Rufus, partly wanted to beat Chuck by winning Blair over. Like a sort of one up on the guy that has always seemed to have everything. People like to play Dan and Nate as the polar-opposites but I think it's more interesting to compare Dan and Chuck. They're both similar in their outside-looking-in kind of way. They both have a loneliness to them. But the way in which they are really different is that Dan comes from a home that was not exactly well-off, but rich with love and Chuck comes from the opposite. Over the seasons I've felt that both boys have been moving in the opposite direction of which they begun. Chuck gains more family and Dan loses that family dynamic he used to have. Chuck used to be the clear villain and Dan was the hero. But now it's impossible to look at them that way because the lines have been blurred. Dan is no longer the total good boy from Brooklyn and Chuck isn't entirely soulless and evil. That's why I found their friendship so intriguing this season. It's very much like how Serena and Blair's dynamic has evolved. At the beginning Serena was the hero and Blair her foil, but for a while now it's become really difficult to tell which girl we should side with because Serena also has an evil side to her and Blair has a relatable vulnerability to her. I don't mind seeing change, but I do think this is partially why some people think that season 1 was the best. They're nostalgic for the times when they could say something definite about a character and have it not change.
Everyone really needs to watch the scene with Eleanor in Blair's room again. The writers acknowledge everything that we have thought about Blair. She says "you probably think I'm pathetic, if I were really a powerful woman I'd be content with no man at all" and Eleanor responds "even moguls have hearts." Eleanor does not just give the company to her without saying that there isn't a woman alive more powerful than Blair. Notice how she says it BEFORE she gives the company to her. She's not giving her the company so she can have power, she's giving her the company BECAUSE she has power. They also acknowledge that Blair didn't want to be part of Waldorf designs ("I know that you've always said you didn't want any part of what I do"). Blair responds with a justification of why she would love to work in fashion, and also she remains true to herself in saying she's not a designer ("Have you seen my closet? Fashion is art and culture and history and everything I love combined. But I'm not a designer"). All of this rings true with Blair's conversations with her mother in season 4, including their conversation on her birthday and their conversation about working for a fashion magazine. It's not totally retarded. Blair did work hard in fashion before and she knows how to handle things in an organized manner. Her mother has always seen it in her, giving her jobs like seating charts etc. We've seen Blair struggle career-wise for so long and she deserves this.
Oh wait, its a full new account with new posts. How sad. This happened to my twitter as well :(
Anywho, did anyone check out sleepwalkers? The author has returned! I cheered!
