I'm just not gonna buy this girl running a company when she can't the shit in her personal life together.
I know! That came off as completely effing mad on Eleanor's part. Blair's going into her 4th year of undergrad? How's about we start with an internship to learn the ropes? Nope! Gotta complete that powerful woman arc we never really started! The short cuts in storytelling this show takes are unreal.
Goodman wrote the finale and is now the new showrunner so I have zero hope for season 6, lol.
Ah shit! lol. I don't have much hope for anything satisfying either tbh. At least GG should keep delivering on the lulz. I do wonder how involved Safran was in the plotting of the finale though.
Lmfao @ those gifs. That kids rant was hilarious! Seriously what the hell was the point of the finale? To fuck everything up beyond belief, alienate even more viewers and tack on a Chair reunion so poorly written and conceived that even their fans aren't all that excited for the last season?? Uh mission accomplished, folks!
Another CB fan who wasn't a fan of the finale here! I knew the damage would be bad when Safran was banging on about dropping bombs on the UES or whatever but DAMN! Literally every character except Rufus and boring NoLa did/said something shitty and it left a really bad taste in my mouth. I hated seeing Blair and Serena trying to ruin each others lifes, Serena tricking Dan into the Derena having sex, Bart being ~evil (him being alive at all, for that matter)...gah I hated it all! I actually enjoyed scheming Lily a few episodes ago but her interactions with Rufus and Bart made no sense here. Is Matthew Settle leaving the show or something?? Good for her him, if so.
Dan and Blair deserved a proper break-up. I wasn't clear- did she try to end it via e-mail? Right after saying she still wanted be in a relationship with him???? That's just cold. I wanted Chuck and Blair to have a conversation to hash everything out, and I think there was an attempt with the rooftop scene on Chuck's, but the writing was too poor so it came off too angry and their actual issues were overshadowed by that dumb BI twist. I would've been fine with the "all in" metapor (though ITA- hope that's not Blair's $$)/casino scene IF there was sufficient build-up to it but there wasn't. And while I wouldn't mind, if not outright prefer, a few episodes with Chair as friends next season, I certainly don't want Blair to grovel!! No just...no.
This may be an unpopular opinion but I also didn't like Blair inheriting Waldorf Designs out of nowhere. Ok so what? Let's skip all the hard work and the schooling and make her a "powerful woman" by dropping a company in her lap?? The fuck? I really wanted Blair to work on herself and be single for a while, honestly.
I'll watch next year to see how this all pans out with a new show runner and a reduced episode order. I hope they can focus and undo the bullshit that was unleashed in this episode.
