Dare to Dair?
I think this person stopped watching in Season 3, before Dair.
From the article, the writer doesn't even like Chuck and Blair.
To me, “and we no longer actually cared who was hooking up with whom or when (if) Chuck and Blair would finally play it for keeps” can only be written by a disappointed Chair fan; it implies that at some point, the writer cared about Chair. It also means that the writer is not a chuccultist.
7 -- 'Gossip Girl' (The Series)"You know you love me, XOXO." Oh, but how we did, dear Gossip Girl! Remember when that show was everything? Dan and Serena! Chuck! Blair (and Nate)! Dorota! The Met steps, little J before she became a punk-rock raccoon, and the time when every masked ball, every fundraiser and every champagne brunch felt like it was the place to be, because it was? Those times became a distant memory sometime around 2010, when – seemingly overnight – the show's guilty pleasure appeal became tired and uninspired and we no longer actually cared who was hooking up with whom or when (if) Chuck and Blair would finally play it for keeps. But the CW kept the Josh Schwartz teen show a-churnin' for three more seasons, until, in the spring of 2012, the network finally realized it was time to put the show out of its misery with a half-season order. And so, we raise our glass of champagne to the Upper East Siders. Here's to the good times, despite how long ago they actually were.
I so agree! Never ever have I seen a show that used to be really entertaining and fairy good, turn out soooooooo bad!
THIS GODDAWFUL SHOW IS ALMOST DEAD AND BURIED! REJOICE!
YYYAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYY IT'S OVER!!!!!!! THANK GOD. PARTAAAYYYY! WOOOOOOOOO
Oh and LOL, those Chair/Derena weddings were so unromantic it did even bother me seeing them. On the contrary actually.
On Dan being GG? Saw that coming. It doesn't make a bit of sense but oh well, I'm happy with the revelation that he had been the one pulling the strings for years. Especially Blair's jealousy.
I'd laugh, but the fact that the writers so evidently threw this slop of a finale together at the figurative last minute, with no prior intention of revealing GG/having Dan be GG is pretty pathetic. What will Chuckistan do with all of their spare time now? Ha.
The episode hasn’t aired yet on the West Coast but doesn’t Dan being GG contradict several episodes? Wasn’t GG the one who told Chuck about Dan sending the video at the Blouis wedding? How about the pregnancy test that Serena bought for Blair? Was Dan GG during all these 6 seasons?
Jay -- of course it contradicts episodes, makes zero sense, etc. Nonsensical narrative is Savage's forte, and lord knows she would do anything that would put the proverbial icing on the cake of Chuck. However, I find it amusing that they decided at the last minute to make Dan Gossip Girl. After all, that means that the "NJBC" was nothing without him and Chuck and Blair were trolled by the "outsider".
Chris, I don’t think that Savage realized that implication; she was probably simply thinking about the most outrageous OMG moment that would also "put the proverbial icing on the cake of Chuck" as you stated it.
