This episode could use some Chuck and Blair interaction.. why waste so much time on royals? Chuck and Blair interaction is needed asap. Dan and Serena were awesome. Ä°t made me realise why I love them so much. They are good fro eachother.

Diana is blatently Chuck's mother. Why else would the combination of the safe be her date of birth in that episode? Now all that has to happen is Nate happens upon Diana's DoB and recognises it....

One of my arguments for DAIR is that it fits the archetype of the starcrossed and poor boy/rich girl dynamic: they are mutually beneficial to each other. I think CHAIR, unfortunately, will be stuck in the unhealthy, disturbing and sick Lady Gaga-esque archetypes. Nothing good has come from their relationships. It is a high school romance pretending at greatness (soulmates/family) and stuck in lust/dark social mores. The constuct is not good for the show and it's not a good message to send.

That said, the writers do batshit crazy things sometimes (read: Juliet, Jenny, Vanessa) so who knows. They might totally screw up the last season(s). One of best arguments for DAIR is that Blair is acting the same way she was when she was starting to fall for Chuck, that is, she is stuck in DENIAL. She has NOT read the entire book, which I believe will be the catalyst for the kiss that ends all kisses. She is denying everything exactly the way she denied her feelings in season one and two. When something makes her vulnerable/uncomfortable, she pretends it doesn't exist.

And for all the CHAIR fans, I don't hate Chuck. I am rather fond of the character. I am sick of the tired tragedy story and the sexism bullshit he is spewing each season. I was so happy to see him go to a therapist but SO tired of the same old "I've never had sex in a therapist's office" line (Monkey sniffing the dog's but was clearly foreshadowing). Seeing Dr. Barnes wipe the smug grin off of his face was worth it and I hope he becomes a healthy, happy character and stops acting like a child. Lest ye forget, he felt Eva was his soulmate too at one point. I just hope he and Blair can remain friends and confidants as their romance is sadly uninspired.

Louis was reading Gossip Girl on Blairs computer when she came into the room. The blast was about Chuck talking to the shrink, right? Wasn´t that why L called her up. Why he appared to have her on speed-dial I don´t know though.

About the Kiss to End All the Kisses, Ausiello said that Blair is at the receiving end of it... :D

Can we please do something with Nate? I am sick of his character getting awful story lines. He seems like he is just spinning his wheels. At this point Nate could get a spin-off show, even the Juliette story line was bogus. Stop filling screen time with Louis and Ivy and give Nate something to work with.

This episode overall left me very confused and anxious to see what is to come next.
First off, even I found it annoying for Charlie’s sake that she had to try and get rid of Rufrus and Lily. Those two are seriously only good for getting in the way of other character’s storyline. That is so sad.
For some reason I like that Nate and Charlie are starting off as friends and it will clearly take more than 2 episodes before they hook up. That has always been the problem with Nate, so its nice to see part of him changing is becoming less of a whore. That doesn’t mean Charlie has won me over or that I want her to be here til the end.
So I never understood why Serena lied about the copy-write for the book if in the end, her boss is mad at her now. Serena really has been downgraded to second best compared to Blair now. Shouldn’t be a surprise, that’s bound to happen if we compare their acting skills to each other. I did thought her acting when she said Dan is the love of her life, was very good. Her emotions were real.
One of the thing I find to be the most hard-to-believed about this episode, is Dan’s novel. I find it hard to believe all this fame would actually happen to him in such a short period of time. I find it hard to believe that there are quite a few amounts of people who would have read the whole thing, including Serena. I especially find it hard to believe that Blair is portrayed as the live of his life, according to Serena. First off, if the writers are trying to make this into some sort of epic love triangle between Dan/Serena/Blair it will now work because Dan and Serena have so much history and we have witnessed their love for each other to be very strong. They were together for high school and part of college. Then we have Blair and Dan who have never been a couple and have only gone as far as one kiss. Therefore, if Blair and Dan do get together, it will only come off as desperate and predicable because they are the last two, yet unrealistic.
Getting back to the love triangle, to compare Dair to Darena is like comparing Vanessa and Chuck to Chair. Dair simply did not have enough time blossoms I guessed. And this whole thing with the novel reminds me of One Tree Hill when Lucas published his novel. Now one major difference is in that show, there was one epic love triangle; Lucas/Peyton/Brooke. Lucas has history with both thus, helped made it epic. This thing between Dan, Serena and Blair cannot compete with that. Therefore, I strongly advised the writers to cut out any further hints of a Dair hook up because it will be a mistake. Considering the whole thing with the wedding and the baby, the show will never get around for these two on time. And considering that this may be out last season, and considering we all want Chair to be the endgame couple, I say stop Dair now. Dan and Serena can end up with each other at the end. At least with Serena, Dan won’t be second best. With Blair he will always be.
Now I am starting to get annoyed with this whole thing with Chuck not being able to feel. He hasn’t been part of any major storyline from week to week. He needs to be more centered. I really hope that that lady will not be his new love interest. The last thing we all needs another reason to keep Chair apart. I am worried about what he said in the message. Apparently they have history I guess. I hope nothing develops from this. I did think that it was good to see someone finally put Chuck in his place. I love him and everything, he’s my favorite male character and all, but I did not forget all the awful things he did to Blair.
To me Blair did not seem like herself at all in this episode. First, Serena blew off a lunch date with her and that was enough to make her want to move to Monaco? I find that hard to believe. Blair didn’t have a lot to say in this episode. Even when Cyrus was reading over the terms of the papers, she was mostly just upset about it, rather than becoming a bitch. Louis was more of a bitch than her. But seriously, does anyone not care that she’s pregnant but are wearing super long heels?
This episode had many parts that left me confused because it was not performed out very well or it was just complete nonsense. But the cliffhangers it left were very interesting; Chuck’s connection to that Lady, Louis’ connection to her too apparently, Diana’s past with Bart, Louis finding the envelope, etc.
I voted for Dan and Serena above because I rather these two end up togeter than see Blair and Dan get together. I am so over Dair. Chair all the way.

...another possible way for Chuck to "redeem" himself, as mentioned in the article could be - Blair has a miscarriage (not that I want that at all no way but just thinking mediocre like the GG writers usually do) and somehow Louis triggered it and Chuck is the one who supports her...but I think the - make Louis a bad, bad guy doing bad, bad things (especially to Chuck), and Blair getting to know this and getting back to Chuck all forgiven - is the way GG will go...

noo no serena and dan i used to love them in season one but i think after like 45 break ups and get back togethers they should be done! SERENA AND NATE FOREVER!!!!

Been with GG from the start but this episode still had me gritting my teeth...grrr...I know we have to suspend reality and believe in the improbable on GG but seriously...can't they credit their audience with some sense!?!

It always cracks me up how just one call can make a world of difference - Serena calls up Harvey W's people and suddenly they call off the deal with Dan's agent! I mean couldn't they call back and check with Dan's agent if this news was really true, or why they changed their mind, or try and negotiate so they can get back the deal of this masterpiece of a book - things that agents in real life would try and do - but nope here they just go by that one call and make huge decisions.

In another site someone had mentioned that the episode preview shown in Canada showed Louis asking the therapist to get Chuck back to his past misdeeds, misbehavior...can see where this is going folks? Louis does that, Blair find outs, gets mad at Louis, sees Chuck in a brand new light and goes back to him!

The writers don't have the balls to make the far more likely in real life mature love story of Dair happen - so I am already bored with this. Yes, from day 1 we've known Chair is end game and given the cookie cutter, predictability of GG I shouldn't have hoped otherwise...but there was a part of me that hoped GG writers would rise above themselves and give us Dair...:(
