Dan in the finale
Making Dan look/go bad justifies Blair, Chuck and et al actions and also does not make them look so bad. This is probably why you now like Dan. The writers also may have the same line of thinking of using Dan to justify being bad is okay. Just like they justify abuse (and I don’t mean the glass breaking episode).
As a woman who was in a abusive relationship for 4 years (I knew in my gut I was in a bad relationship but I justified it saying he loves me like no man could, obviously I had very low self worth), GG writers line of thinking annoys me. What annoys me even more are there are women on the Chair thread, women with nieces and daughters who condone or give reasons how Chuck has been redeemed on the IP thing. It is insulting to all who are/were in an abusive relationship. It’s only when you get out, and stay out you realise how bad and toxic it was. The love I have now is so opposite to what I was in and it’s like daylight compared to the darkness I was in. I am so grateful I found pure love.
In my opinion there was no need for the IP. There could have been other ways to create drama and it was pure rubbish writing.
Some fans may think Serena’s behaviour towards Dan has been above reproach and he should be grateful she loves him. They hold this belief even when the writers themselves have written her to be rubbish for the past two seasons.
It is entirely possible to be in love with someone for 3 -4 years and then fall out of love especially when feelings have been messed about with. People fall out of love all the time and it’s not OOC.
I said before the finale that if Dan slept with Serena, even if Dan and Blair were broken up- there was no way back, and there is no way back. Of course Dan is wrong. I think fans are frustrated because his actions made little sense given everything that had happened in Season 5 to date.
Weel,I actually could not see any sence in moral statements of Dan and Serena sex. It was not nearly like Serena slept with Nate before season 1. I also does not beleve to Serena, when she told than she love Dan. She use that words to seduce Dan as a tool, and does not show real feelings, only scheming. Anyway, I hope that new Dan's book about evil females of UES would be great. At season 5 there was almost no decent girl, but bunch of evil doers. Lily's figth with Ivy is so strange, that I become to think, that maybe Ivy is realy Lily's daugther (or maybe even more picant?). Blair's and Serena's scheming was mostly self-destructing, also we saw queen mother dovry, Diana's constant scandal ... At this paint Georgina's cruelty was a regular buzz. Bunch of female evilness.
I agree that Dan wasn't the best in the finale. He was a complete dick to serena and shouldn't have slept with her so soon after the dissolution of his relationship with Blair, knowing that she was in love him. While I don't think his actions can be justified they can be rationalised and quite easily understood.
I also does not beleve to Serena, when she told than she love Dan. She use that words to seduce Dan as a tool, and does not show real feelings, only scheming.How can you seduce a tool?hahaha just kidding. Serena schemed thats right she did but thats just 10% of the reason why she slept with Dan. How can you even say that she slept with Dan out of scheming and not LOVE. Have you not watched the the complete season 5 and just the finale. And HOW can you say that when Serena said she loved him there was no emotion?What show are you watching?? Dan is the reason Serena's life is going to turn into ruins,he is the reason she is back on her old ways.She loved him and he hurt her.
If Serena loves Dan she's a funny way of showing it- nothnig screams love like moving your boyfriend into Dan's apartment without asking him after months of standing him up and messing him around
Dan clearly doesn't love Serena- they are not in high school anymore- let both characters move on
@No second troy
Let me give that a low five.
Seriously your arguement is old and ragged!!
The fact that Dan doesn't love Serena is reason enough- it's bad enough to constantly revisit Chuck and Blair- don't throw Dan and Serena back into that toxic merry go round too
