The way we viewed it, I think it’s very clear that Blair is not afraid in those moments, for herself. They have a volatile relationship, they always have, but I do not believe—or I should say we do not believe—that it is abuse when it’s the two of them. Chuck does not try to hurt Blair. He punches the glass because he has rage, but he has never, and will never, hurt Blair. He knows it and she knows it, and I feel it’s very important to know that she is not scared—if anything, she is scared for Chuck—and what he might do to himself, but she is never afraid of what he might do to her. Leighton and I were very clear about that.
I love the last sentence. Anyway, as a viewer, I was scared for Blair. I don't know what the writers' intent was, but that whole speech above is a load of crap. Chuck was forceful with Blair the way that I saw her. In the writers' minds maybe Blair is scared for Chuck, but any girl in this situation would be scared out of her mind for herself. It's basic instint when someone threatens you (and Chuck's actions were threatening whether he intended them or not). This interview is actually is more depressing to me than the show.
Blair seemed really scared, and so was I... When she ran off ...well she ran off...which meant she was scared. I might have misunderstood, maybe Blair is into the S&M thing
HE DIDN'T MEAN IT
"The way we viewed it, I think it’s very clear that Blair is not afraid in those moments, for herself."
Um, yeah. There was NO fear on her face when he was grabbing her and pushing her on the couch, eh? Also, why did she scurry out of there like the devil was on her heels if she wasn't worried?
not every GG guest character has to have some sort of agenda, let him leave as gracefully as he came into the plot, and he has treated her well.all the guest stars who came out of nowhere with a hidden agenda have not said "I came back for you" to someone they met 9 months ago. He could have followed her any time. Screw Louis he has a hidden agenda.
It is not because Blair goes back to Chuck, that would be just stupid and not fair to Dan, first of all. In such a case I would rather prefer Blair not to choose any one and spend the summer deciding what and whom she wants to be with.stupid and not fair is common in this show, and spending a summer to decide who or what she wants? That didn't work out for Serena in Paris. Aren't we all tired of repetitive storylines.
^^ Flora we have the same opinion about the prince. This sl doesn't tell me anything, it's fake....
THIS IS BLAIR NOT SCARED AT ALL~ LOL!
^^ Flora we have the same opinion about the prince. This sl doesn't tell me anything, it's fake....I don't even ship Dair (Derena...whyy) but Dan is the only guy this season that Blair has not been incredibly annoying around.
You are just admitting to make bad tv with bad actors when your 'point' doesn't come across to the audience. Blair looked scared for herself. Writers fucked up, they could have made Chuck hit rock bottom without abusing her, it looked like he was gonna rape her for a second.
He is acctually reminding me of Marissa Cooper, a continuous fuck up until they killed her with the excuse that 'the character had run it's course'. Josh Safran, SS and Josh Schwartz don't aknowledge the huge potential their characters have. They are so wraped up in creating OMG moments that they don't take time to tell real stories. I'm still waiting for them to really aproach Blair's bulimia, Chuck's apparent drug problem (no one can be so blase about cocaine and not be an addict, it's addiction percentage is the second highest only after heroin), and many other real storylines. If they did that they wouldn't have to pull guess stars out of nowhere in every other episode. One Three Hill (even though I much prefered Brook with Lucas) has had 8 seasons cause the creators take their time with the storylines while still making them interesting.
Seriously, they keep having to give interviews saying Chuck doens't need to be redeemed. The ratings keep hitting rock bottom and that way the show will be canceled next year.
