Right. I get the point now. So, the plane crash thing was just "tradition": i.e. a Thanksgiving party per season, a cotillion, the bad Blair/Serena argument, the random mother/teen for Nate, Chair outfits matching, the Hamptons episode... This was just the traditional and seasonal, "let's try to kill Chuck".
Lily should be GG! She has enough free time for that.
Hi Where's Waldorf.
As I said in my comments, a few pages behind, I agree 100%, I loved the chapter. The experiment on it, it was absolutely classic Charade, use of music, use of "artificial acting" , that Casablanca part as well well you know what I mean. Those moments such as when Bart suddenly gets into Blair's car (shocking moment)... it all said "old film"...
And yes I was terrified to watch Bart levels of wickedness (when he played the nice host, when he threatens people in a subtle or direct way). Wow he looks the very devil at some points.
I can also live with the idea of CHuck (and in the same degree Blair, who is as guilty as he is, dont forget) dont trying to save him, I find it much more interesting that the topical "try to grab him". I dont think that was deliberate, anyway, everything happens so fast and I got the feeling if it lasts a bit longer, after Chuck's shouting, they would have tried to help him. Now let's see how they face that.
And what I like most is the strength of their love; even at the darkest fate they are facing, they stay together; when it seems we are having a very last farewell scene, they are both already scheming to get together again. They are inevitable.
I am glad to see I am not the only one who really enjoyed the ep.
Wow, the kiss scene is so...Casablanca... The way they are dressed, they way the talk... But Ilsa and Rick were not the scheming queen and King than C and B are. Ilsa and Rick gave in, whereas Chuck and Blair, they both have already a plan inside their minds to fight for their love. I love that.
They together in the edge of the abyss they are right now...after... well, cough*murdering* Bart.
She, the queen of UES, arrogant and ruling over all them, who was a royal princess herself... getting down to earth and willingly supporting and sharing his fate, however dark and uncertain it might be.
He, accepting her support and not running away for the 100th time, saying the "we cant be together", "I cant make you happy" an all the excuses he brought before, pulling her to that uncertain future with him. And going one step further to ask her to marry and get linked forever.
Wow, that means to me: TOGETHER. IN sickness as in health, in poverty and in wealth, in sorrow as in joy
That is Love, and that is the love I always wanted for them.
Bart is gone yujuuuu!!!! I would not have helped him either. I would have kicked him off and thrown a brick later to make sure he is definitely gone. Well Chuck almost killed himself in that very rooftop and it was Barts fault, wasnt it?
oh oh twist in the last 15 minutes!? Argh. Why dont you let us leave happy. I hope that has to do with GG identity.
(Ohh I see it clear now... Ausiello is GG!!!)
I have to say it, I have just finished the chapter (and deliberately avoided any information from anyone before watching it and.... I have to say it!!!!)
I LOVEEEED the chapter (sorry to disagree with 99% of all you)
Wowww, what a show of evilness and great acting Bart Bass gave last nigh ... Oh Jesus Christ, he is Satan!!!!
I am sure I will be having nightmares with that monster tonight and many others in the future.
And the way the chapter is made, filmed, like an old classic film, the artificial acting, the over-drama, the music, is absolutely classic, well, just like Charade itself!
I admit it is risky to have a 6x09 chapter like this, and I understand some of you did not like it, but I loved the experiment.
I didnt like that things had to finish with no help from Chuck and Blair, of course, but that also gives a strange and interesting twist into the story. If they had tried to grab his hand, I would have considered it cheesy and obvious. After reaching such extreme of wickedness (it was honestly scaring me to watch his devil face at some points in a big screen), nothing can be done to save or redeem Bart. And I wanted him damn dead!
How will they face that in their future? Interesting question. I think their dark side can face it.
I loved the bitches part, the NJBC part, I didnt see Dan scheming with Chuck coming, and I was actually so shocked when suddenly Bart appears from nowhere and get into Blair's car. I loved that last part.
The aiport part, I really cried. Never would have expected to, but I did.
And about the proposal, I am happy now to know there is one, I had almost thrown the towel on that.
It seems I am the only one happy tonight, but I am.
Bart is going to die, Bart is going to die... :)))))
(God never thought that idea will make me soo happy). It s sad isnt it ?:(((
And I was thinking... why do the writers hate Chuck so much?
Can you remember of any other TV show character (other than the typical action TV show) surviving to so many accidents etc..? The shot in Prague, the car crash, the bike accident, the almost drunk-suicide at the roof-top, the stupid incident with the taxi, now the plane crash...come on!!! HE is Ironman!! He has even survived to the HUGE amount of scotch going though his liver :)!!
Not to mention all the emotional crap he has been though: "Oh, I killed my mother at birth, now my father dies, not wait, my mother is not dead, now I have multiple mothers. Oh, and my father has resurrected. Now my business goes away, now the love of my life leaves, comes, leaves, comes (x1.000). Ok, my father and my mother are such bitches that they rather be dead, oh and my new mum also betrays me, great... and also does my best friend"
Come on writers....What is next, Monkey attacking him and disfiguring his face?!?!
At this point, I dont know if they have loved or hated him as a character, but I am sure that he was a very, very rich and promising character and they didnt know how to handle or make the most of him.
