@Where's Waldorf That doesn't mean you have to make your female characters whiny/pathetic constantly clinging from 1 man to another, especially when they didn't used to be this way. Gossip Girl isn't controversial/dark, it's predictable, it's horribly written. It used to be a fun, interesting show with characters who actually had a life beyond stupid relationship drama which is what it's turned into. There's nothing complex about that, maybe you like watching shows like Jersey Shore/The Kardashians.

@Charlie Trout Blair is just so pathetic and whiny, it's kind of sad to watch.

@c Blair hasn't been loyal all season, she cheat on Louis when they were engaged and humiliated him at the altar in front of everyone. Blair's words of love are meaningless, every time she says 'I love you', it just feels disingenuous. Chuck should go back to being a fun playboy womanizer and just dump Blair once and for all, she's not worth it.

@Maribells Serena already backstabber her in Season 1 and they're always fighting and going against each other in every season.

If she's turning into Serena, how does that make Serena any better? That only makes her a complete hypocrite.

The writers already ruined Derena when they made them step siblings.

1. B's quote about high school GG. The good old days of headbands and yogurt. Sigh. RIP High School GG.
2. I don't have a problem with Dair. I just prefer Chair which we all know is endgame.
3. Probably Blerena or Derena. Chuck will be pissed, but he'll live.
4. No, B would never kiss Lonely Boy
5. Boring. But I liked it better when we didn't know who GG was.
6. I don't have an opinion.... I mean this whole show has gone downhill. All I want his Nate and Chair. Nate is so pretty. Sigh.
7. LOLA. Chivy is cool, but her voice gets annoying by the end of the episode.

And yes, everyone is entitled to mistakes. Chuck has had his fair share and apologized for them. There's nothing for him to do but to be a better person, but it's more the writer's fault than anything, he always reverts back to the person he was. He's good, he's bad, he's good again.

It's why apologies come off as insincere and disingenious. You can't sorry and then do it again, and say sorry and then do it again.

And at least for me, once your cross that line one too many times, and as deep as Chuck has, apologizing and being a better person, no matter how short lived or repeated, while awesome and good, doesn't warrant a reunion.

You get points for being a better person, but be a better person to be a better person, not a means to an end.

Oh, and my response wasn't meant to bash Chair either. Even if you had, you're entitled to that opinion.

And to my point, you're right, the Ed/Leighton Chuck/Blair is a passion onto their own. It's nothing like Penn/Leighton Dan/Blair dynmaic. To compare them, at least IMO, is like comparing apples to oranges.

It's different. To try to compare it, I think, given one's bias, one will win out over the other. I recognize that CHAIR has something unique to them, just as I recognize DAIR has something unqiue them.

With choosing a passionate relationship in real life, I didn't mean an abusive relationship. Chuck and Blair share an intensity that Dair lack imo. I've been very open-mined about Dair. But now that I've seen them kiss again, they don't have the chemistry that Ed and Leighton have. Dair is okay as friends, but not more than that.
Chuck has made a lot of mistakes. He apologized for it and he tries to become a better person. Besides that there is nothing he can do.
Dair have their chance now. I've enjoyed them as friends but as a couple they're too awkward for me to watch.Besides I've never liked Dan. Imo he is a very boring character and I've never cared for him until he became Blair's friend. So I'll skip the Dair scenes and wait for the chair reunion.

@Ace I respect your ship and just to clarify my comment wasn't intended to bash Dair.
I agree that passion doesn't mean that it is always good. But this is a tv show and as a viewer I want to watch the passionate and intense couple. Besides in life I would always choose a passionate relationship over a nice friendship turning into more than that. That is the reason why I chose the Whedon comment, who I have a lot of respect for. I want to live my life to the fullest even if it causes me pain. I would always choose an intense and complicated relationship over a simple love, even if it doesn't last. I believe that everyone should choose the person he or she can't live without and not the one you can live with. This is just my personal opinion and I know that others may disagree with me on that.

Thinking Dair since "Bad News Blair."

After all, we can forgive Chuck for Blair’s public humiliation, the treatment that she’s a commodity to be traded on the stock market, the physical intimidation, not to mention the brazen alcoholic stupors of womanizing because he’s so emotionally damaged and deep and so in love with Blair, right? It’s good drama and all, but it’s a bad message that you can find your happily ever after if you can just stick it out with being the abused.

That just ain’t my cup of tea… even for drama’s sake.
