Trina, it doesnt matter. What matters is the perception that Dan is simehow selfish in standing in a way of great friendship and if he really loved Blair he wouldnt do it. Of course the argument can be made here that if Chuck really loved Blair he wouldnt have manipulated her into making a deal with Jack and then blamed her for it, but who wants to listen to that argument? You will always have a Humphrey club who will say no matter what Dan does, he can't possibly hurt Blair more than Chuck. And you will have a Chuck club who will find any flaw in Dan and argue that in no way is Dan a better man than Chuck. It doesnt matter. The writers dont care. They will milk this ship division until they cant anymore and in the end Blair will most likely end up with neither guy or it will be ambiguous.

Dan owes Serena nothing as far as I am concerned. She's the one who tossed him aside so why should her feelings about his love life matter to him at all? I don't get it. Even when Serena wasn't interested in him last season, she still tried to destroy Blair (sent gg blasts to Louis mother) just because she became friends with Dan. Dan is not her property.

If Blair doesn't want Dan for reasons such as Serena, that's her right. But if she wants him, that is still her right. I don't get why people think it's okay for Serena, Blair and Dan to all be miserable for Serena's sake. And yes they would all be because if DB have mutual feelings but can't be together, Dan will still not be with Serena meaning Serena won't get her man. Then Dan and Blair won't be with the people they like either. Why is this the best option?

Of course the writers don't care otherwise they wouldn't have reignited Serena's feelings and made her tell Dan he was the love of his life, she loves him always have and always will and have Blair encourage her to make her feelings known. All this before anything even happens with DB. This is obviously for maximum drama.

Dair will be deliberate cruelty? You know that even if Blair rejects Dan it doesn't mean Dan will get back with Serena, right? Serena and Dan have been over for a while. Serena moved her boyfriend into Dan's loft. I don't see why Dan should now be interested in her because she read some blasts or has lost her position as #1 in Dan's life.

Derena is the second most consitent ship in GG actually. They were throughout season one and two, then beginning and end of season three and the first half of season four. So no, they are not 'over'.

I've said this before, but I'll repeat it; it is monumentally wrong for Blair to pursue Dan after telling Serena to go for it. If she had feelings before, I understand it. If she had said nothing, I understand that too. But she's all supportive now, only to pull the rug out from under Serena later, and that is cruel.

So the main issue here is that Serena has feelings so DB shouldn't be together. Really? What about their own feelings (if they have them)? They can't live their lives for her.

I'm not saying they should. But Blair currently does not have feelings, she loves Chuck and is married to Louis (probably doesnt love him anymore...). The issue to me is that Blair is encouraging her only to betray her later. And yeah, okay, maybe she's developing feelings for Dan right now, after she said what she did, but she owes it to Serena to talk it over with her or give her a chance. If she doesn't, that is the final nail in her character's coffin.

Dan owes Serena nothing as far as I am concerned. She's the one who tossed him aside so why should her feelings about his love life matter to him at all? I don't get it. Even when Serena wasn't interested in him last season, she still tried to destroy Blair (sent gg blasts to Louis mother) just because she became friends with Dan. Dan is not her property.They were never not interested, the 'sink or swim' convo showed they are waiting for their final shot. And can you really say Blair would decimate Serena if she went after Chuck even though they're not together?

The idea of Serena being a worse friend than Blair is beyond ridiculous anyway, considering the innumerable times Blair's screwed her over. I'm not trying to be offensive or start anything, but I think people become blindsided by their ship sometimes.

But Blair is painstakingly unaware that Dan doesn't love Serena anymore and has feelings for her instead.   The reason she encouraged Serena was not out of cruelty, but because I think she believes Dan loves Serena.  Part of it is Dan's fault for not being upfrot about his feelings toward both girls.   Part of it is Serena's.   You can't tell me time after time she hasn't witnessed / been told straight forward about Dan's devotion to Blair.   Every one of these characters is in their la-la-la denial land.   And, no, it's not going to be pretty when someone's feelings will get hurt in the end.

Whoa. You all take this show way to seriously.

Blair = Bitch.

Serena = Whore and Dumb.

Chuck = Manwhore and now love struck.

Nate = Useless.

Dan = Blair's new minion.

Jenny = MIA.

Georgina = So 1st season and wasted writing space.

Vanessa = Waste of what could have been a good character.

They all suck and the writers have gone so far that its just honestly annoying. Eleanor Waldorf is NOT as big a name so the whole "We needed her money" thing was just absolute trash. Chuck and Blair. I am so sick of them toying with this couple that its just not even amusing anymore. Its wasted character development space. Same goes for Dan and Blair. And Serena and Dan? Really? Their freakin siblings! Sure they were great in season 1 but let's face it, they are really over and just need to stay that way.

This is why I stopped watching the show. The storylines have just gotten so fake and out of wack that its more laughable than anything else. But seeing how it was the 100th episode I felt like a had to watch. and I was disappointed unfortunately. I felt the writers could have really done something and maybe redeemed themselves.

I was under the impression she actualy told Dan she thinks he cares for her more than Louis, is she really that dense? What makes her think he loves Serena?

If you're right and she legit does not know (which is ridiculous imo) then I'll concede the point.

The girl accepted Louis' marriage proposal after knowing him for all of 2 - 3 weeks and didn't even bother to draft a prenup agreement (this dowry thing is ridiculous btw; even by medieval Europe standards) after Louis on numerous occasions had proven to be less than a noble character.   You tell me if she is dense or not.

Also, for the daughter of 2 lawers not to read a contact agreement (I assume there has to be one) is simply weird.

Point well made. I guess the issue is that whether she knows how Dan feels or not is pretty much up to the viewer. To me it's clear, she knows he wrote the vows. She'll know for sure next week by the looks of it. Gotta be said, it's a shame she's come off as such an idiot with this wedding sl.
