It's ok I wasn't offended but the British Royal Family are the monarchy for the whole of the UK including Scotland. The last main Scottish dynasty, the Stuarts, fell from grace in the 18th century. I like Braveheart too but just to stress Mel Gibson stretched the truth there and then some. Here endeth the history lesson....;-)

Are you nervous! Accept that this is a victory for Chuck in this episode. Chuck has done a good deed and nothing more and nothing less. Nothing he is asked for in return. But you fans of Dan and Blair seem to fear that Blair could still come back to Chuck. What will be the end of the season we will see. The fact remains that this episode was of Chuck!

@Zoran ah ok! I understand your comment now, I think it was the first line that threw me off. I know what you mean, none of the characters are particularly virtuous. Chuck paying the dowry was a very kind gesture, I agree, but he is not a heroic character. Personally, I found he was a lot worse to Blair than Blair ever was to him in their relationship. 95% of Chuck's actions are invariably out of self gain, and I find it hard to believe that it's a coincidence that Chuck would suddenly 'need' Blair against moments after he's paid her dowry for her.

The fact that Dan and Blair have in common is not enough to be lovers, but friends. As you say, out of every couple who have common interests (music, film, art) should become lovers. It is a little strange. What about friendship? Does friends must become lovers? As for Chuck and Jenny from season 3, the two had voluntary sex. Chuck, Jenny and Blair were in the wrong place then. No more wasting so many lies - Chuck did not use drunk Blair! Regarding the conflict between Chuck and Dan, to the Dan itself is to blame. Dan has used Chuck to snatched Blair from him! If I were Chuck I would place one book he stole deleted!

Actually the fact that there was very little plot this week, aside from the Spectator stuff, probably helped considering how irrational the plots have been this year. Maybe the big problem with this year was the wedding. TPTB were DETERMINED to have it and couldn't create a plausible emotional arc to get there or to get rid of it. I really enjoyed the first few episodes of this season, and then the wheels just came off. TPTB shouldn't have messed with Blair. Blair is NOT wishy-washy. Oh well. I watch from habit I suppose at this point.

I'm sorry Sophie. You said that Chuck thinks that Blair is his property. I think he has to part with their selfless denied. Paying dowry did not ask anything. The gift is a gift. Chuck gave Blair the freedom to be with anyone. Chuck was not anything worse under Blair than it was for him. Both plots were made, both are attacking each other. But in the end still stayed together. None of the characters in the series is not as clean as a tear, and can not be attributed to Chuck all the negativity. To repeat, Chuck is a hero in this episode.

I'm sorry Scots. Accidentally occurred to me, I like Brave Heart movie. British royal house is busy, and France is a republic. Minor monarchy is not exactly famous in the series. But really not a bad idea and opens up many possibilities.

@Zoran I'm happy to debate with you but your comment makes no sense. 'It's good to have hit you in a chord. I see how you're nervous.'? What are you on about? Nothing you mentioned had anything to do with what I wrote in my first comment.

@Kookakicha I completely agree with you. This fandom is nuts.

Dan understands Blair deeply without having to buy her, nor to sell her, for that matter.

Their relationship seems so much more honest, mature and lovely than her lying schemes with Chuck.
