Gossip Girl's Dan and Blair: Will They Last?

by at . Comments

Now that Dan and Blair are a full-fledged couple (or at least clearly headed down that path, without a prenup, Chuck or Louis looming as immediate obstacles), the question becomes, when the show returns April 2:

Will it last? Or will these two quickly realize they're better as friends?

That's an open question, but their bedroom woes won't do them in.

TV Line's Michael Ausiello says that the sex problem Dan and Blair encounter on the next episode (as evidenced by the Spring 2012 Gossip Girl promo) will not necessarily be the thing that derails Dair.

"Those resourceful kids will quickly find a solution to their sad sack woes," he reveals in his weekly spoiler column, "Although I can’t really see them sustaining said solution on a long-term basis."

Hmm. Any thoughts on what that solution is? And whether it will be sustainable?

This is just one person's opinion, mind you, but it's likely to be shared by many who just can't envision Dair together for good. On the flip side, many fans see them as the sole reason for the show at this point.

Don't forget there's that on-set kiss that is allegedly from the episode after April 2, so even if they do end the romance, it may not be imminent. Anyway, what do you think? Comment, and vote, below!

Dair: Will it last?

I really hope they are endgame. Dan and Blair belong together and they should be endgame. Go DAIR

Serena keeps coming back to Dan because of all her bad choices. Just because she can't let go doesn't mean their story isnt over. Think about the times people break up and one of them always isn't ready for it and clings to the idea but from the other persons perspective they're still over. As for Dan's book he is a writer and although based on the UES it's still a work of fiction and he has the right to artistic license. Also perhaps even subconsciously Dan knew Serena was a bit of a flighty airhead even when he was in love with her. I think he also saw through Blair quite early on too. The benefits of being on the outside looking in.

I'm still not clear why Dan has to say anything at all to Serena?? She has known for awhile that Dan has feelings for Blair so what did she think was going to happen? It's not like because Blair was getting married that Dan would instantly forget about her and switch back his focus to Serena. The whole thing is just farcical. Dan and Serena are family now irrespective of blood and that's the relationship that should now be the focus for these two and the basis for their shared story. I hope they allow Chuck to properly develop outside Chair and I hope that Dan and Blair are written well whatever the final outcome is. I am a sucker for happy endings whatever that end is. However I do freely admit that I would prefer a Dair ending.

@ Blair should be happy
If Serena and Dan ended their relationship, why did the writers have left Serena that throughout this season she suffering for the Dan. Why did not they find a partner to Serena and the story would be over. Serena could not support a relationship of Dan and Blair, but she is not dumb to attack their relationship because like that it will be entrench. Again I raise the issue of Dan's first book in which he erroneously described the Serena. The mystery is important to understand current developments in the series.

Dair is a hurdle, chair is endgame!

@Raven @Zoran I agree with Raven that Chuck and Blair may not be over but Dan and Serena perhaps are. The only way Serena can redeem herself in Dan's eyes is by really supporting his relationship with Blair, and then if writers ruin Dan and Blair(please don't), Dan may go back to Serena again. But I don't see that happening, because lets face it, now she is the biggest supporter of Chaie after Chuck.

As for Chuck and Blair agree with you. However, relationship between Serena and Dan I think you are wrong, because if you are right, on the Serenas declaration of love to Dan, he should have told her that he does not love and want to be just friends. But Dan did not say anything to Serena, because writers are not even written. Another thing, most viewers believe that the action of the series revolves around only one pair, this is not true. All couples who are active in the series are equal and their story is represented in equal shares. We viewers are the ones who cheer for a certain couple.

I agree that the story between Chuck and Blair isn't over because the writers are too gutless to do it. Instead of ending it cleanly so viewers could buy into new relationships for each of them they dragged it out until it got truly painful to watch. However I disagree about Serena and Dan. I think their story has been over for awhile in terms of a romantic relationship. I don't agree that Dan has some sort of responsibility to deal with Serena's renewed feelings. I think Dan has moved past the first love of high school and now sees Serena as exactly what she is - this beautiful, good natured girl who he once loved but is now part of his extended family and that's the way he'll care about her now.

But the end of the series has not, however, and another 7 episodes this season, then another season. So far in the series no one couple had a happy ending. It is true that Blair is not only Queen B, but its present melancholy and unconvincing attitude toward Chuck and Dan is catastrophic. She simply does not know what she wants, now she wants Chuck, now wants to Louis, next Dan she want. Serena knows very well Blair, but Blair das not knows Serena, in the 4th season when Serena was hospitalized Blair immediately concluded that Serena is using drugs again, only Dan defended Serena. And Blair, Serena, Chuck, Dan and Nate are unsure, they do not have courage to move on, so the story between Serena and Dan, and between Chuck and Blair has not yet been completed.

@Raven Exactly. Chair was great while it lasted. But it had a chink in its armor. Its fun when they are chasing each other, and their sex after each reunion is great. But after that it just falls apart. They might seem alike on the surface, but deep inside, they both couldn't be any more different. Blair is much more than the Queen B persona, a person with real insecurities, which Chuck and Serena don't realize even after so many years of knowing her. And that's why Chair don't settle in a relationship. The chase is thrilling, but when they reach their destination, its beauty is lost on them.

And who am I? That's one secret I'll never tell ... You know you love me. XOXO, Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl

Blair: Fashion is the most powerful art there is. It's movement, design and architecture all in one. It shows the world who we are and who we'd like to be. Just like your scarf suggests that you'd like to sell used cars.
Dan: Vanessa gave me this scarf.
