Gossip Girl Round Table: "The Backup Dan" (2/7/2012)The only thing that bothered me about "Lola" was her choice in shoes. As someone who's worked as a server and for catering events, there's NO way in hell you'd wear a pair of heels like hers to any job. Seriously, what was wardrobe thinking? The dowry excuse wasn't a big deal to me - I like how it came between C and B. The theme of Chuck treating Blair like property has been a consistent one over the years, so it was appropriate for B to not want C to "buy" her out the mess with Louis. I had a harder time with the pact from God from the week before - though I would have liked that plot device better if it had stemmed from the loss of her child combined with the almost-demise of Chuck. More of a multiple trauma induced anxiety kinda thing, y'know? Anyway, the dowry clause is obviously an outdated yet traditional practice, and I could easily see Louis and his Mama gleefully dusting it off to get what they want from Blair. Can't wait for more lovely Dair BFFing next week! ^_^

Huge spoilers from GG Set (10/31/2011)
Uh, sorry, but Breakfast at Tiffany's has no such scene. Perhaps it's a different movie they reference? Blair doesn't always dream in "Audrey", y'know. ;)
My vote is fantasy sequence or royal beeotch sabotage.
Who Does Blair Kiss - New Ausiello Spoiler (10/27/2011)
If therapist Eliza is successful, she will bring out something old school in Chuck - namely, Chuck Bass gets what he wants, and takes it if necessary. I can see him trying to prove himself to Blair and, once again, forcing himself on her - not in a scary, aggressive way, mind you, but in a powerful-yet-misguided, "I will show you how much I love you" way - aka: The Kiss.
Blair will melt into it for all of three seconds (because, honestly, who wouldn't? Chuck's a pro, lol!), but then she'll remember herself - or that she's engaged - or that she secretly pines for Dan - and WHAMO, aka: The Slap.
Either way, I can see Louis walking in on this, freaking out, which in turns freaks B out, and...well, dramatic stress (like a fiance jumping to conclusions and breaking off an engagement, perhaps) can only mean bad, BAD things for her pregnancy.
GG Pregnancy contenders revealed? (5/21/2011)
Eleanor was in NY for Blair's engagement party. Why she'd use Blair's bathroom...? Who knows. Maybe she didn't want Cyrus to find out because she herself was beyond shocked. If I were her age and suddenly preggers, I'd be cracked out, too!
I'm calling the whole situation a red herring: no Serena, no Blair, possibly Mama Waldorf.
