@GGFail If he criticized Blair, it would've been in his book. He wrote Blair in a positive light unlike Serena. What you described sounds more like Serena and every time she falls head over heels in love with every 'nice' guy she meets while using Dan as a backup.

@Where's Waldorf You're bothered enough to whine about it in your posts.

OMG, I so agree with you. They did not know what they were creating but it became something so beautiful, so surprising. I love Blair more when she is with Dan. I despise her when she is with Chuck.

His motivation isn't caring for *her*, it's only to ingratiate himself by riding to her rescue to make himself important. Was he going to take her to the Hamptons away from Louis when he knew full well the reason WHY Louis did what he did? Yes. Did he act as a true friend and tell her Louis' motivation so that she could be reassured of Louis? NO! Because that would be at odds with his quest to be Hero. Sending that video in to Gossip Girl? So selfish. In that instance, Chuck was the selfless one because when Blair shook her head "no" during the ceremony, he didn't speak. He listened to Blair and honored her decision. Dan, in another show of egotistical superiority, overrode Blair's decision and sent the video. That's not love, that's control. He has to prove that he's right and she's wrong. Lather rinse repeat for however long this insanity continues.He's in love with an idealized vision of Blair, and she's mistaking a sense of obligation for love.

For all the Dair shippers saying that a relationship with Dan is "healthy" and he "cares". Puh-leeze. That horndog cares only for himself. He has the same rose-colored glasses on when viewing Blair as he did with Serena. She's a distant shiny pretty thing that he places on a pedestal while at the same time constantly criticizing her behavior and her world. He may sneer at the UES, but he wants it. He kept picking at S until they broke up. It would be the same with B.

wahhh not bothered for Dair :( I've never liked the loser and the popular bitch getting together. I like watching sexual chemistry and I don't see it in Dair. But I'm going to keep watching because everyone's stories have been pretty entertaining this season and I can't wait to see what happens next.

@GGFail Gossip Girl really doesn't deserve another season so the terrible hacks can crap out more contrived crap.

People should just drop the show and stop watching.

The audience demographics for GG shows an ages 12-18 skew. So I get why the high school boyfriend might seem to be the ONLY boyfriend possible. But, even in the fictitious world of GG, the characters have had to age both chronologically as well as emotionally. And one can & does outgrow high school relationships. Doesn't mean you cease to like that old love, you just like him/her in a different way, because now you are in love with someone else.

Blair & Chuck loveD each other. Blair & Dan LOVE each other.

Watching re-runs multiple times has convinced me how unbalanced the writing on GG can be - veering from Awesome to Abhorable. I think the Dair pairing emerged as something unexpected and very beautiful. I don't think they actually planned on it - so Dair might be the least “manufactured” relationship on GG. Dair emerged as something natural & wholesome & thereafter the writers probably just went with the flow...but they had so not seen it coming, and they had this Chair fan base to appease, that the writing kept getting more contrived. It is to Dair's credit that they still SHONE. I think the writers should really trust their instincts & for once give Dair an - author-backed - chance.

@ Dair for ever : you are totally right it's incredible for a couple that did not even started to have such a high support rate ! Come on Chair has been here since season 1 it is mathematically normal for them to have more shippers. But what does matter is that Dair shippers have increasing share, and also as one previously said ...all that matters is quality over quantity. I love the witty intellectual so look alike and at the same time full of constrasts relationship that links them!

Sooo glad I didn't watch this episode. The comments are enough to let me know that would've regretted wasting an hour of my life.

I loathe the soap opera Gossip Girl has become.Heightened reality is fun to watch, but the show has become a parody of itself. Fake cancer? Secret love-child? Hire-a-fake-child? Long-lost parents? The entire royal storyline? Please. This show is a farce. The increased incidences of pregnancies and medical dramas as storylines is soooo low rent. Did the UES suddenly become a giant trailer park?

The first 2 seasons had great OMG storylines that were fun: financial scandals, real-estate drama, art, fashion (I miss Jenny because since her departure there is no fashion story at all... such a missed opportunity for a show set in Manhattan), and the lifestyle / manners conflicts between the UES and Dumbo. It started downhill in Season 3 and picked up steam from there. I used to have hope that it could recover, but I no longer do.
