Ok maybe I spoke too soon...I just looked at what Sara Goodman has been responsible for...Lots of Season 3 episodes...Including the one where Chuck forgets who he is...How soap opera can you get? She wrote in Diana and where-in-the-world is Chuck's mother plotlines as well. Also, Chair lovers she wrote the romantic Vera Wang wedding gown scene between Dan and Blair. So she's not completely pro-Chair, don't count your chickens. This is said with love, because I'm neutral in the conflict.
Hahaha FINALLY Josh Safran is out! If he went on a mission to make the show bad, he wouldn't have been able to succeed as well as he has this season. Captain goes down with the ship. Now, if Eric Daman would go with him, things might start getting better. When I first heard of Gossip Girl, I was not impressed. I never even read the books. But the show (at least the first season and parts of the second) was so incredible that I was hooked. If they can end GG strong, I'll be happy. In all honesty, this show never had a chance once they left high school.
How Gossip Girl should have ended, everyone graduating and we see them moving on after high school. I refuse to believe that a web master called "Gossip Girl" could be so omnipresent outside prep school. That's where the show lost its footing. After high school, your priorities change.
I just hope they finish strong. RIP GG
I loved this episode, this season hasn't been my favorite I'll admit it but I did love this finale. Bernadette and Howard have always been my favorites, even from their first date when they compared mother horror stories. I do like that these two are romantic without losing that twisted sense of humor this show is known for. The Ma slip ups were hilarious, mainly because we know most of the time Bernadette is supportive. Their little romantic gestures were adorable too, the star necklace and the "short and sweet" vows. Raj's heart was so perfect and it fit right in with the episode's theme. I loved the ending, it tied everyone together very nicely. But at the same time, it gave us lots to look forward.
Oh and her diary has been leaked!
I still keep one, though many don't anymore, if it was on the internet for all the world to see, I'd be panicking too.
As for Dan; I'll ignore his hair, even though that's hard, because someone's personal appearance should not be taken into account. He's been there for Blair a lot over this year but the way he treated Serena was pretty low. After all, he did once claim to love her. If he's capable of treating Serena like that, who he ended on good terms with, it's only the beginning for what's in store when he realizes that Blair really isn't as committed as he wants her to be. Give the girl a chance to breath dude! She just lost a baby (though she doesn't seem to remember that), got divorced, got in a car accident, gave up Chuck for God (glad they dropped that), and various other incidents. Also apparently Bart Base is alive, because the Devil can't die. You pick now to drop the L bomb?
Both these relationships are past enduring.
Chuck may be an asshole but how many times does the guy have to beg? Either you forgive him or dump him. It could be said that he deserves both. About the hotel/money issues, Chuck and Blair come from a world where money is treated differently. They both have extremely materialistic backgrounds, so its no surprise both of them have sold each other out on multiple occasions. Chuck for a hotel, Blair for a tiara, to name just one each. Chuck jumps in the arms of another immediately afterwards, so does Blair. Nate (twice), Lord Marcus, Louis (twice), Carter, Cameron, Jack (almost twice), now Dan. They've both behaved badly towards each other in varying degrees. It's the inevitable outcome when you play games with the people you love.
I do love the contrast, this is what Don decides to do and this is what Betty decides. The show in my mind is about this couple. Don and Betty are the protagonists, even if we've only seen very little of her this season. Peggy and Pete are close seconds.
I actually think Pete's story is very interesting. This is the mental break down of someone. This is a deeply, deeply unhappy man. The more unhappy someone is, the worse things they do. I don't think Pete was ever really in love with Trudy, whenever he talks to her he has this fake tone of voice. I think he wants real love at any cost and its driving him mad.
Megan is young, vibrant, and still searching, what she's doing getting married to a man whose set in his ways, is beyond me. I don't think this marriage is going to last, just as I think the Francises are going to stay together. One element of this marriage that I like is Don's desperation. We've never seen it before. A character like Don could eventually grow stale unless he's faced with something out of his comfort zone. This entire marriage is out of his reach. He doesn't understand his new, young bride and he doesn't understand the world she chooses to live in. His attraction to youth, like Roger, is going to make his extremely unhappy. Meanwhile Betty is a lot happier with Henry because he's older, like the father figure she lost. He takes care of her and she (up until her illness and weight gain) knows how to present herself to make him look good.
I think Betty's mother screwed Betty up. She made her into a little doll, she never really grew up. She marries Don and they have the perfect family but she's not happy, something's missing. It's because her husband hasn't been honest with her a day in their marriage. This leads to the feeling of emptiness and bitter resentment, just nothing seems to be out of place. Everything looks grand on the outside, but it's rotten on the inside. That's what this show is about. With the Drapers broken up, it makes it a new show.
I think the main problem with Megan is her complete lack of understanding when it comes to Don. She may know his real indemnity but she doesn't know him. This makes me miss Rachel Menken. Now she was a woman, Megan seems shallow in comparison.
