Well I still watch Gossip Girl out of habit and becaused I adored the first two seasons of this show.

About the crazy Chair fans. It was not meant as an insult but more like a way to discribe my frustation. I'm not interested in this shipping thing and Chair is not really important to me. But was bothered me was the obvious plot hole and people obviously ignoring it cause they're biased by their shipping preferences.

It was a plot hole because a character commited a crime by letting another person die. It was also a plot hole because Chuck always proclaimed to be better than his father and then he let him die not without shouting some angry words at him like an insulted little child. If the writers wanted to show that Chuck has became the same as Bart then they suceed. If they tried to make Chuck look like a hero who risked his life to fight his awful father and then suceed by letting him falling of the building then they failed.

Well I think it's really futile to have morality arguments about a teen show like GG. I think it's only really hypocratic of some people to critisize Dan for his publishings and then actually defend the upper east siders for what they did. I guess it's because Dan's the outsider and the other ones are the glamouros people living in this world. Probably most viewers like the glamouros people more and so they actually like to oversee what they're doing or even praising them for it. Dan's just the mean outsider who tries to get in their world. And shame on him that he published the truth in his exposes.

@Em- I couldn't have said it any better.

@Juliette I see your point about bias/hypocrisy in the fandom and you're absolutely correct in some instances. But you do get Chair fans who have loved Dan's story this season and love Dan in general (and don't hate on him for telling his version of events). I'm only pointing it out because I am a case in point :)

Blair telling Chuck she didn't want to be safe and that she only wanted to be with him pretty much sums up that horrid mess of a relationship for the past couple of seasons. It is self-explanatory and no brainer!

About Chuck or Blair "killing" his dad: You have a duty to be a proper human being and at least try to help someone. It's called the crime of omission and you can be tried for 1st degree murder if you have the ability to help someone and you choose not to.
But on the other hand, if you don't know what to do, like one of your examples was a brain aneurism, unless you're a brain surgeon that person is most likely going to die- you can't really do anything, it's just their number. And what I could tell they both could have done something - Verdict: Guilty as charged!

You have every right to complain about the plot holes and bad writing. If you feel that way though, why do you still watch? I am one of those "crazy" Chair shippers. In real life should these two ever be together, hell no. It is a show and when they're not completely making these two look like idiots, they have good on-screen chemistry. It's fun to watch, and I wish the writers would have handled the story better, but it is, what it is.

How is Chuck not giving Bart a hand a plot hole? It's the kind of situation where you don't know what you'd do unless your in it. Based on the situation and the preceding events they made the beat decision

It seems futile to have morality arguments about GG. All the characters have done bad things (some certainly worse than others) and there really is no message about morality in the whole show. In the real world, most people wouldn't let another person fall off a roof, most people wouldn't fiddle with their account numbers, and most people wouldn't publish mean things about their loved ones (I am only singling those things out because they are recent and topical, I'm aware that other shameful things have been done on GG by other characters as well). It's okay for a TV show to break those rules because it isn't real and NO ONE should take any life lessons away from it.

Yeah let's just bash the people who actually saw the plot holes and tell them to shut up. As long as one's favourite couple end up together, who cares if the show is poorly written and portray characters in an inappropiate manner. Well it's just a tv show. You don't have to watch and it's not like we live in a democracy where you can express your opinion.

Very bittersweet. Only one episode left. In the six seasons the most three memorable events about GG are 3) NYC 2) Bart Bass dying for real. And the number one memorable event 1) Chuck and Blair getting married!
