Thats the thing. When did Nate become the symbol for stupidity? He used to be deeper and introspective in season 1. He said clever things. I guess he started his decline with his first cougar
Nate and Serena don't have legs to stand on. They're WRONG. They just suck as characters. If they don't grow up in the next episode I'll be so disappointed.
Nope. I still love Chuck.
I'm mad at Nate and Serena because I know they're wrong and are just playing victim.
I loved the punching scene. The music was perfect. I also loved this conversation:
Dan: You think they hate me?Georgina: They fear you. Welcome to the Upper East Side.
I think Sage really loves Nate but I don't want her with him because she's too highschool. She says so much immature shit. I'm not bothered for her or her father.
I loved the way Chuck was positioned standing near Blair when Nate punched Dan. They're such a matched set. Blair gave her disgusted look and Chuck just looked away in his "I can't be bothered even caring way." They're just the dark sexy pair that make sense.
This is hard to explain, but at that moment I felt as though the writers were trying to show their world as Dan looked over at them. And Chuck and Blair will always be together in "their world."
It was a great episode for "partner-in-crime" Chair.
Serena is so immature for calling Steven. Her character is an absolute joke. Anyone can make her "fall in love." How the hell is Dan supposed to trust or believe in their relationship? He was willing to be that nice guy and sacrifice his literary career for her, but she doesn't appreciate that. She takes advantage of him and doesn't allow him to feel 100% part of her world. He feels like the only way to get her to treat him better is to show that he can be exactly like anyone else in her world. Maybe that's kind of misguided but I do understand why he feels that way. He has is own "Lonely Boy" issues to figure out. But I find him really interesting to watch right now.
Also, although it's sad and dark, I think that the only way Chuck's character can finally finish his story is through witnessing his own father completely lose his mind. Bart is starting to crack, and I think he's going to try and kill Chuck. Chuck is going to see what the power, greed and cold businessman lifestyle did to his father and finally realise what it means to be a man. That shadow of his father following him around everywhere will finally disappear. He has to lose respect for his father to ever really grow properly. Its sad that it has to be this way instead of him and his father talking it out and maybe learning to grow together, but the writers seem to be going this way. If it were One Tree Hill, they would probably resolve their issues with less dark themes. But this is Gossip Girl so it does make sense.
I'm not interested in an NJBC ending where they all circle around Serena and protect her like they did with Juliet. I do sympathise with the outsider and I like to think that the outside/insider distinction can be resolved by the end of the show. Dan is as much a central character as any of them. I don't think his happy ending is without Serena. He will be right in the end. He's the most interesting character to me.
I'm stressed out from 5x08.
I don't want Dan alienated like that. I don't care what anyone else thinks, everything that comes out of Dan's mouth is exactly how it is. He tells the truth. He hasn't dug up any secrets about any of them and used it to ruin their life. He was written something that they all need to face as people and finally grow up. Everything he rebutted with to Serena was 100% right. Yes it's mean but he's RIGHT.
Now I hope that the final chapter is the positive truth, because I know that our characters have a lot to them than just the negatives.
I want respect as a Chair fan and GG viewer. I'm not going to get it if I don't look at things how they are. I understand where Dan is coming from. I just hope he turns it around so he doesn't just reveal the bad, but the good too.
