  • Not Bad, But Still A Stretch

    Dan and Blair have a different kind of chemistry than Blair and Chuck. With Blair and Chuck it was all passion and lust-- something that started when they were younger. With Blair and Dan, it's trust and comfort, and I'm glad the writers are pursuing this love story with them. I don't necessarily think they should end up together, but the viewers and Blair's character need to at least try it out and give the relationship a chance. It wouldn't be fair to have all this buildup for Dair and then just leave us hanging.



    I like the Lola/Charlie storyline and I'm interested in finding out where the writers are going with it. Obviously, this show is completely unrealistic and not plausible for regular people, but that doesn't mean it's not interesting. However, I'm curious as to how much longer this show can last; I don't think I'll be watching after this season is over.moreless

    To some of the reviewers that are against Dan and Blair...in real life relationships like the one Chuck and Blair have are just never a choice (people never change)...almost 99% of those relationships end...and in their place a normal happy one takes place. But I guess some of you did not have that experience in life...thus you wouldn't understand. This is good for the show, it means that they take life seriously. No one...NO ONE in their mind would ever choose less for themselves...especially if it is given to them freely and unconditionally.



    I'm just going to say how happy I am that Blair is finally seeing the light. I knew the Chuck and Blair thing was over the moment i saw Dan Humphrey fall head over heals for her...its just so pure and down to earth...something Blair truly needs. The way she reacted to Dan's actions was priceless and mature and puts her in such a lovely new light. She's growing up! I hope now they can just leave the poor couple alone and let them enjoy each others company. And hopefully, Serena will leave Dan alone...she's his poison as much as Chuck is Balir's...Lonely Boy no more!! He's more like Busy Boy!! Also I am glad Louise is gone...jeee what a flakey bastard. And I will miss Goergina though haha..she's awesome...As for the Rhodes stunt...meh...boring.moreless

    After watching the last episode and venting here how abysmal it was, I thought this episode was quite good... until the ending. Gossip Girl is hitting us below the belt. I mean c'mon!! Blair is IN LOVE with Chuck. He loves her with all his heart too. For about 4-5 years, they have been in love with each. Blair keeps pushing off Chuck because of God, because of Louis and what not. Finally finally, Chuck has a chance to be with his true love and Blair tells him she doesn't love him... oh wait, my bad. She isn't in love with him?? Blair was my favourite character, now she just seems such a witch. She basically stringed Chuck around for years, and now she wants to be with lonely boy? Poor poor chuck! If I were him, I would have strangled Blair and stabbed Dan. I detested Dan for the last few episodes and sadly, Blair has joined the gang. Dair has got to be the worst thing the producers could possibly think of. On a different note, the Georgina thing is quite good. The villain might be turning out to my fav character since the lead people are so stupid!! (Yes Blair, you) Serena has to develop some sort of story line. They should name this show Blair anyway. I was feeling quite sorry for Ivy until she turned lily and Rufus out of the house. That was too much. And the fact that William Vanderwoodson is Charlie's father... horrible idea!! That disgusts me. Serena and Charlie are now step sisters? Their mothers being sisters???

    How could they take one of my most favourite shows and turn it into something this awful??



    I wish there was a rating less than 1.

  • Great turn of events

    9.0
    Don't understand the heat at the turn of events. Honestly, when CeCe passed on, all Lily and Carol cares about is Ivy cheated the inheritance and not finding out why. And why the blame all on Ivy, her character was to be sympathize than hated. I have to say, Chuck and Blair has been an item too long and it will be good to see a new chemistry for everybody. I am very excited to find out how would Ivy handled the wealth, how William will steal it away and give it to Carol, how Dan and Blair will turn out, How Chuck reacts to that, and please blow the princess thingy over already. And can how Georgina is going to make us of the indebted favors from Chuck and Blair.

  • Get Over It

    9.5
    Oh come on! Both Dan and Chuck have great chemistry with Blair. I think it's fair to say that Blair really do love Chuck but it is different when you are talking about being in love. I think much of that love she has for Chuck is attributed to their history. However, the writers won't give justice to the characters if they persist on the Chuck and Blair pair up. They have the most unhealthy and inconsistent relationship. Both deserve a mature kind of love. It happens in real life. No matter how much we want to end up with someone we have already invested too much time and emotion, still, life steers you towards someone more deserving..Dan and Blair are both opposites and yet, they have the sexual and intellectual chemistry together. So, get over the Chuck and Blair drama already! We are so fed up with it!moreless
