@UC He is in love with Blair, if he was bored, he would've gone back to Serena.

"quit falling in love with every girl that comes your path"

Sounds no different from Serena and every 'nice' guy she falls in love with or Blair this season.

@Ace The CW suffered from poor decision making, Dawn Ostroff ruined the network by limiting her viewers/audience to 18-49 range and ruined successful WB/UPN shows. If nothing is done to try and fix these problems, it will continue to get worse. There's a reason why the big networks (CBS, FOX, ABC, and even NBC (to an extent)) don't use the CW's system because it clearly doesn't work. Poor decision making killed the WB and UPN and they lost a lot of money, and it's slowly killing the CW because it's a failing network.

@Ace The CW is in an awful state, it's been declining every year and now 0.5/0.6 demos are all too common now on this horrible network. Buffy was a popular series that ran on longer than it should have, yet it was still not as bad as Gossip Girl. Gossip Girl was Dawn Ostroff's baby, it was given the special treatment compared to other shows and it still does poorly. Even in terms of syndication, Gossip Girl does poorly in repeats getting 0.2 in demos. Other shows that go past 100 episodes like Grey's Anatomy can actually be supported by its' success. Costs go up, for the actors' salaries, the costumes, the locations, etc.

@Lisa Not only did Blair not stop, she also kissed him back when she could've easily pushed him away if she wanted to.

@Zoran It's not only real life problems, the writers foolishly turned them into step siblings in Season 3 when not only did Rufus/Lily marry, they found out about their step sibling. It also doesn't help when the actors clearly want out of the show, especially Ed Westwick, who even went as far as criticizing his own character and the writing.

Ok people lay of Blair. Dan was the one that started the kiss and no Blair did not stop it but she did not go in there inteding to kiss him. She really was trying to help Dan and Serena get back together. And it's possible for Blair to love Chuck but have feeling for Dan. He has been there for her and she prob pushed this feeling away because of Serena. Also she married Loui for Chuck and hello did you not see Loui be a jerk? She has to stay with him or her mom will lose her bussiness. Chuck and Blair are not ready for each other and Dan gets her. Besides for the whole video thing witch I think she should for give him for. All that being said I am a Chair fan but I'm loving the Dair. Why can't we all just get along and remember this is a tv show. No need to be hateful to each other.

My remark was not directed to study the relationship WB and GG actors in the series. Of course the actors have valid contracts with the study, but in this case, no contract can not cover the fact that the two main characters Blake and Penn in the first 3 seasons were in private relationship related to the beginning of season 4 broke the connection, and that this feel to their performance in the series. I'm not talking about the love scenes, but of ordinary scenes that they only do two completely different compared to the first 3 seasons. Even so, they must give credit to them that they had this season to act out a love scene in episode 11 (the year after the break), and declarations of love by Blake faked in episode 13, because it is very difficult for them because of their past.

Buffy, for example, was a poor decision that the WB made because although they were popular, the WB still canceled them, and UPN picked them up almost immediately capitalizing on WB's mistake, a mistake they acknowledge. They, then, canceled Angel a season later, who by comparison did lower in ratings than Buffy, and another decision that the WB regrets.

If GG was doing that poorly, the network would've moved it to the graveyard slot where Supernatural currently resides. The CW will axe out Nikita, Ringer, and Heart of Dixie before they would even consider canceling GG, especially a show that gives them profit now.

That's actually not true. Most broadcast dramas' production costs are front-loaded, which means the short fall happens in earlier seasons. It's one of the primary reasons actors have their contracts commit to the show a standard 5-8; this locks on-screen talent, baring actor-complications, so that the production breaks even by the 100 episode mark. Most shows that reach that break-even point go into the black because syndication allows the network to shop the show at a higher price per episode. While production costs rise as actors have built-in raise markers, so does the revenue stream to maintain the bottom-line, especially when a show can be shopped to more than one network.

Sorry, but my English is not the best.
The fifteenth episode took place as it is written, and it might be expected because the plot is set in season 4. In fact, on Valentine's Day in season 4 B and D were first connected, and S is the choosing of Ben pushed D right to B, and C is to do the same for B. But this is not the biggest problem GG series. As I mentioned a few days ago the producers turned the story upside down, because the main actors Blake Lively and Penn Badgley in the half of season 4 can no longer act love scenes, because they broke their own private affair. I am a fan of Serena / Dan, but the two of them not being able to compile some sort of connection of the second half of season 4 and so far has led to the producers that they finally killed the story of Serena / Dan.
