*what keeps me watching...typo

Why keeps me watching? Habit and a desire to see how the story ends. More and more the latter becomes less of a reason to tune in. This last episode wasn't the worst of the season but it was very dull. Serena was at least interesting even if her motivations were all over map. Everything else was painfully boring! I had to laugh at Steve's comment in the review: [we] "can expect fireworks" (in the next episode). This is precisely what GG is lacking. Fireworks. Spark. Buzz. Every episode is stagnant and flat. I almost wish I shipped one of the couples so I could look forward to something. I cannot believe GG will go into 6th season. It's like a horse with a broken leg...sad and breaks my heart but it needs to be taken out back and shot! Unless something radical changes, a 6th season will only continue to ruin good memories of this show.

As for the fairy tale you're right, but the series is not over yet! You're wrong I like Dan when he was with Serena. The character Dan has changed for the worse, he is now worse of Chuck if Chuck can be bad. Dan is still suspicious of Blair, you could see in that scene in Breakfast with Dorothy. Dan did not believe what Blair said, but he takes papers for divorce from Dorothy. You're smart, if I do not know that you cheer for Dan and Blair, I would think you're right. And Chuck is not stupid to be friends with Dan who takes away the love of his life. I see that you do not like Chuck, is that correct? As for that that Dan is in love with an illusion, which then reflects on Blair, I still stand behind it. Proof of this is the scene on the steps of the Metropolitan Museum. Dan and Blair are not children of 10 years, and pretends that they are prince and princess.

Not really. The definition of a fairytale is something that ends good.
Dan and Serena started good but ended badly. And right now, they are far away from each other. Also, you do not seem to like Dan's character and still want him with Serena which still makes no sense.
And see, this is why you can't deny Dan's change in character. Even through all that Blair put him through, he stopped being judgmental but understood her on another level. he is not season 1 Dan anymore. he has no illusions about her.
And Chuck and Dan actually became friends for a while, before "hero" Chuck got his angry/possessive mode on and ruined it.

Dan and Blair are boring, makes one yearn for great Chuck and Blair scenes from seasons past. As Blair said once: stimulating conversation does not make a great relationship, it is the crazy, passionate and intense ones that people want, that is why Chuck and Blair need to end up together with a great storyline ending. This has been building up since season 1 and fans are waiting for it.

I mentioned a fairy tale of the love between Serena and Dan, and you commemorate something else. I am a big fan of Serena and Dan, and you are not. Blair drove away Dan's sister - Jenny, for no apparent reason. The only reason was because Jenny wanted to be the same as Blair. So, Dan and Blair friends with benefits, should not be together. According to how you described the reason why Blair and Dan are together, then in season 6 should be together Chuck and Dan. For the same reason. Rooting for different pairs, and each has its own view of events in the series.

I don't see Derena as a bad couple but it seems to me like they were never great together beyond the first half of the first season.
Dan and Blair is exactly what the message of the show should be about, if there is any, which is that prejudices and judgments can be overcome with time and that love needs no class boundary. These two were the most judgemental towards each other when the show started but they became so beautifully attuned. I see that Derena is about a guy from Brooklyn and a girl from the UES but they never started with hate, which makes it less appealing.

Finally someone with whom I agree completely! Everything you said is true. I hope you're right for Rufus and Lily, because their divorce opens the door to Serena and Dan to be together! Completely're right Serena and Dan are one of the best TV couples, ever since I watch television. Their story in the series is a true fairy tale - a regular guy from Brooklyn and a beautiful girl from Manhattan are in love. I do not know why people do not like fairy tales, because the TV show is just that.
