So seeing as the finale consisted of these two pairings' weddings, I was wondering which couple drew you in the most. And why you think one couple is the "ultimate" GG couple. In some peoples eyes, Chair is the heart of GG while Darena is what starting it all. I also have a favourite of the two.

This season of GG (and the past few) haven't lived up to what it was in season 1 and 2, as so many of you probably agree. I personally didn't know what it was that ruined it for me or why I started to not care. I used to WAIT for Mondays and watch the episode that night. Recently, I've been 10 or more episodes behind. I just didn't care. And I realized its because they turned GG into the Chuck and Blair show. They made almost every storyline revolve around how they will be together. And I also realized that as a couple, they drive me crazy!! GG went downhill for me when they ruined Dan and Serena. They were why I watched. It was the ultimate West Side Story love story. Every girl wanted to be Serena and find her Dan (the guy that knew she was too good for him but loved her anyway) and then suddenly Dan was all over the place, Serena was a bitch and then within the last 3 episodes, they fall back in love? I'm just disappointed they threw Dan and Serena aside for the last season and a half (and I'm not talking about their romantic story, but their actual storylines) and then they remembered them by making Dan fall for Blair, then turn on all his friends, and suddenly want Serena again all in the span of 10 episodes! The loss of the characters of Dan and Serena lost me as an invested viewer. Chuck and Blair just never did it for me, for SO many reasons. To me, GG will be the Dan and Serena story of season 1. They made me swoon.

Anyway I can talk about this all day but I would like to hear from some of you and see different points of views!

I've loved and been obsessed with Chuck and Blair since season 2. But since 3x01, I haven't truly enjoyed the show. You many call it the Chuck and Blair show, and I understand why you say that, but they've just been constantly messing with us and never actually putting them together (until the last rushed episode of the whole show). I love them and I think they're perfect for eachother. But this CB (with the IP, Chenny, Dair, Blouis, pacts, etc) isn't the CB I was obsessed with in s2. I still ship them but it's not the same. The writers ruined everything on this show and did so much damage to Chair. I can totally see how you're disappointed as a Derena fan. I thought that they were cute in s1 (and they were the main couple of s1 for sure!) but Dan started being judgey about S's UES lifestyle (when he wanted to be a part of it all along?? that hypocrite :P) and then I just hated him more and more until during the series finale, I couldn't even look when he was on the screen. I know Chuck did some really bad things, but I dont' think that he's a really bad person. I can't say the same for Dan and I wish that Serena had done better for herself. But I'm glad that you DSers got your happy ending because we CB shippers have been around since s1 too and it's been a long, miserable, painful ride. We've both been treated horribly by these idiot writers. I think a lot of what makes me love CB is that Chuck and Blair individually were my absolute favorite characters on the show in s1 and 2. And then together, it was just perfection. I've never loved/shipped a couple so much in my life! I just wish they hadn't wasted the last 4 seasons and we could've really seen them together instead of them just throwing us rushed scraps in the last ep. Oh well. Congrats on Derena!!

saying it once would've been sufficient Chris ;) I'm aware of that, thank you. Still, overall I'd say he's a good person. And in my opinion Dan isn't. That's fine if you disagree, that's your choice!

lol did I spell Derena wrong? haha I didn't know there was an official spelling. 

I think on a Dan-Chuck comparison, I don't think Chuck is a "better" person. Firstly, every character on the show did something questionable - a common tactic by the writers was to bring in a "good", untainted character and have them succomb to the schemingness of the UES (see Dan, Jenny, Vanessa, Lola). Chuck was brought on as a "bad boy" so anything honourabe he did was seen as exceptional while Dan suffered more from the opposite - being judged as an asshole because hes the good guy doing dishonourable things. You have to also remember that even after loving Blair, Chuck chose his hotel over her, he got drunk and almost beat her, his selfishness of being better than his father outweighed his love for her even until the final episode. Having said that, I do not think him allowing his father to die was what made him a bad guy - he let this happen because Bart threatened Blair. To me, this was him FINALLY reacting to something related to Blair in a way that makes me BELIEVE he loves her. 

Now the character of Dan in the final season was MANHANDLED. The writers thought that by making him a jerk, they can redeem him by revealing him as Gossip Girl. The writers didnt even plant the seeds of him falling back in love with Serena - they played it off like he was merely using her for his book. That is completely unlike the character of Dan who worshiped her! It blew my mind. 

Anyway, I was extremely frustrated. I've come to realize I only ever enjoyed s1 of Gossip Girl, maybe season 2.

I think it must be an opinion thing. Because from the start, I've preferred Chuck over Dan. And I really haven't liked Dan. I liked him at times in season 1 but he just got worse and worse until I just hated him with a passion in the finale. But yeah, they've both done bad things, I just don't think Chuck is a bad person. I think Dan is. And Chuck paid for his mistakes for years while Dan has Serena worshipping at his feet for being GG??? WTF?! Whatever, so glad this show is over. I'm just saying that for me, Chuck is soooo much better than Dan, but it's just my opinion.

@chris(undeclared)

since when did you become Bart bass fan? You dair fans are hilarious.

if chuck was one on the edge of building and Dan do nothing to save him you guys would be celebrating it and worshipping Dan for it but when Bart threatens to harm the people that chuck love and intentionally tries kills his own son you call him a horrible person for not saving him? Did Bart deserve to be saved? 

Would you try to save someone who intentionally tried to kill you, threatens to harm the people you love or who killed your daughter,sister,brother,mother,dad or anyone who was close to you? I deff wouldn't.

Everybody on this show was terrible. Terrible human beings...each and every one of them. Maybe the two people who were marginally better than the others were Rufus and Nate. So it doesn't matter who you like, they were all terribly written characters with dead and stupid personalities. So anybody who still remains a chuck or dan or blair or serena shipper is really weird. Lol. Its one thing to like a negative charcter, but how can anyone possibly like these horrendously written characters, irrespective of being a chair, derena or dair shipper.

Gossip Girl Quotes

And who am I? That's one secret I'll never tell ... You know you love me. XOXO, Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl

[to Jenny] That's the thing. You need to be cool to be queen. Anne Boleyn thought only with her heart and she got her head chopped off. So her daughter Elizabeth made a vow never to marry a man. She married a country. Forget boys. Keep your eye on the prize, Jenny Humphrey. You can't make people love you, but you can make them fear you. For what it's worth, you're my Queen. I choose you.
