Gossip Girl Canadian Promo: Dan vs. Chuck

by at . Comments

In the Canadian promo for Monday's Gossip Girl episode, "The Princess Dowry," the battle lines are clearly being drawn between Dan and Chuck. Suffice it to say, the latter isn't giving up without a fight.

Whether his efforts pay off remains an open question.

How far is Chuck willing to go to dispatch Humphrey as an obstacle to win back the girl of his dreams? Will Dan and Blair build off of what we saw play out in "Cross Rhodes" or be dealt a setback?

Take a look at the promo and see what you think:

To be honest, it's not that I'm opposed to Chair or against Dair, I just really don't like Dan's character very much.. I find him boring and wet blankety. Chuck however I find exciting, and I really do think Blair (when they're together) brings out the best in him. If it really is over for Chair then at least can they introduce a new exciting likeable female so we can see him doing something interesting instead of moping around pining for Blair.

I've stopped watching the show after episode 100 and have been following the reviews just to check if it was getting any better: so far, no improvements!
It was a show of trasgressions, schemes, temptations... These guys are JUST 21 years old and they're making such a fuss about the 'love of their lives': really? Aren't they too young to worry about that? All these great characters have lost their soul and essence. A real shame...

@pty While it's fantasy-based, other shows have handled relationships a lot better than Gossip Girl ever did.

TV is also a media that conveys strong emotions, I mean if I found a love story of this sort in a book and at the end they don't end up together, I can decide whether I enjoyed the story or not independently of the outcome and I may end up buying even if the couple doesn't end up together, but the story is still compelling. But on a TV show, where you know everything is being defined not much before you see it on your screen, and you are also not imagining the story but actually watching it and listening to it, then you end up more involved with the fantasy than with a book where you have to imagine the fantasy based only on descriptions, and that increases the emotional attachments and the wish to get a certain outcome.

@ junior: yeah, definitely it's just a show, and I look forward to the hiatus to focus in other things. I guess it really all comes to what every person define as love and how it should be. I guess for some of us the intensity of the feelings determines whether it is worthy or not to prevail at the end, at least in fiction because in the real world you hardly see such a thing.

Those of us who feel that, simply because they're favourite couple is being thrown under the bus at high speed (those of you have seen the FULL extended promo where B essentially says that she 'loves' Chuck but is no longer 'IN love with him' will know what I'm talking about), they no longer have an investment in seeing where the show leads, should stop watching now. I started watching GG because I loved the cast (more or less) as a WHOLE; because I was interested in THEIR lives - Chair was simply an aspect of it that I was rooting for. However, as they have now bothered to develop this Dair relationship (and managed to capture my interest and support in the process), I am more than willing to watch how this plays out. I cannot even begin to describe how unwise watching a show solely for a relationship is. Those throwing tantrums simply because Chuck&Blair are looking bleaker by the minute, should stop watching. *shrugs*

I don't understand all the Dair haters! They sound so frustrated and unable to move on from the past :P I honestly feel their relationship makes the most sense on GG. Like puzzle pieces fitting together. ALL the little details from season 1 up till now.. ah well.. haters gonna hate.

@sweetbutterfly The writers already suck, they can't stop being crappy nor do they care about viewers. You'd do better to stop watching and drop the show. @Tristan Ludlow I don't think Gossip Girl had any credibility left after Season 3. It's just funny to see all the disgruntled Chair fans to finally see this awful show for what it was now that they're not getting their way for once.
