Lol I don't think Blair "belongs" to anyone.

Seriously. The whole ownership of Blair thing is such a disgusting storyline. At least the Blair of the first seasons was strong and focused.

^I agree! I feel like Blair is stronger and more independent with Dan than with Chuck. I really dislike the way Blair turned out when she was with Chuck and then Louis, way too dependent on them and weak.

has anyone watched the latest ep? thoughts?

just in case i will hide spoilers:
I found the ivy/charlie secret exposure to be quite anti-climatic. carol just so easily admitted the truth and lily etc didn't seem to be anywhere near as enraged as they should have been at carol/ivy. as soon as carol said "this is my daughter" lily just put two and two together and said "so you have lied to us and said this girl is your daughter" (or something along those lines).... no one on gossip girl puts things together that quickly!!

also... i am HATING blair and dan. i love their chemistry as friends, the way they bounce off each other. but blah as soon as they kiss etc it all just goes away and it seems off. and she went from going to church daily etc to try to take chuck off her mind and FORCED herself to marry louis instead of be with chuck and then one kiss from dan and she has forgotten all about chuck? please.


why do i still watch this show??!!!

Recap time!! Whited out for your protection...

There comes a time, even on Gossip Girl, when stories must end, when tough-as-nails alcoholic grandmothers must pass into the light, when Amazonian "It" girls and newly minted Princesses must both acknowledge that their high school obsessions might not be their long-term life partners, and when ChIvys must cede way to Cholas. These stories end so new ones can begin. On last night's episode of Gossip Girl, there was more of the usual — Serena and Blair bickering, Chuck seducing, Nate pursuing a woman who doesn't really answer to the name Charlie Rhodes — along with a big helping of the final: ChIvyGate came to an end, as did CeCe and Blair's denial (this Dair thing, it is really happening). On to the reality index.

More Real Than Rufus Storing His Everyman’s Jacket in Brooklyn
  • Of course Dan’s new book is a monarchy-inspired, alternate history of Manhattan. It probably focuses on an evil overlord named Prince Blass. Plus 5
  • Dorota locks two skinny socialites in a room with a full buffet and no one eats a thing. Plus 3. Dorota would remember that locking a dueling Serena and Blair in an enclosed space together has worked before. Plus 2
  • ChIvy is too bereaved for sequins, but not for a shiny necklace the size of a breastplate. Plus 2
  • Like the rest of her family, Chola makes a very private phone call in a very public place and threatens to press felony charges. Plus 5
  • Alessandra makes a writing-process reference during sex games with Chuck. He really can turn anyone into a dirty talker. Plus 2
  • Dan is game to have his book mocked in public because Bret Easton Ellis already did it. Plus 15
  • Re: Chuck. “That’s the guy from Twilight, right?” No points, but my mom is pretty astute.
  • Carol spent months at a yoga retreat but still walks like a lumberjack. Plus 4
  • Stomping out bugs sounds an awful lot like murdering butterflies. Plus 5 for consistency in Blair’s relationship metaphors.
  • “Charlie gets around.” “Yeah.” Plus 8
  • Plus 7 for the absolute silence during the UCB performance of Inside. Who wouldn’t want to watch a train wreck happen in real time?
  • “Dan loves me for me.” Sorry, Chair fans. Plus 100. And for the way both Dan and Blair's faces (or, really, Badgley and Meester's) both get more wholesome and relaxed every time they play a scene together. Plus 20. And for the way Blair says, “Humphrey, how can this happen?" Plus 5. And for the way Dan says, "It couldn't be horrible, it's you," to Blair, as though his falling in love with her has made her perfect and perfectly unwicked, which is something he would think. Plus 3
  • “What do you mean that cater girl is your cousin?” Blair can still go from heartfelt to venomous in .1 second flat. Plus 4
  • Her grandmother is dying and Chola takes refuge in Nate’s arms. She really is a Rhodes. Plus 6
  • Blair loves Serena more than Chuck and Dan combined. Plus 10. But not enough to not kiss Dan right in front of Serena’s face minutes after Serena tells her letting the two of them be together is going to be hard for her. Plus 20
  • Lily’s face contorts in agony during CeCe’s final moments, but Rufus’s face doesn’t move for the entire third act. Plus 5

Total: 231

Faker Than Blair Wearing a Fur Vest and Eating Bacon for Breakfast
  • For most of the episode, Serena is the voice of reason . Minus 50
  • Head to clothes, CeCe is a sickly shade of gray. Even on her death bed, the real Celia Rhodes would have remembered to get her hair done and wear a sparkly brooch. Minus 4
  • Nate is so honest that he tells Chola about his non-fling with ChIvy, but fails to comment on Chuck’s VerySpecialHaircut. Minus 8
  • Since when is Nate smart enough to check his call history to see whom Chola dialed? Minus 3
  • And after hearing the person on the other end say “Stealing someone’s identity is a felony," would you really just hang up the phone? Minus 2
  • Chuck made a joke about Driving Miss Daisy. As if he ever watches movies about the help. Minus 7
  • And then he says the words, “Party on.” He’s trying to take down Dan, not impersonate the poor man’s version of Nate. Minus 10
  • “Sabrina” tells “Clair” that she’s never cared what people think of her. With the exception of Chuck and a tiara, that’s the only thing Blair has ever cared about. Minus 12
  • From one Rhodes woman to a wannabe Rhodes woman: “What would everyone think?” “You better hope that they don’t.” The jokes really do write themselves. Minus 10
  • Where was Eric???? Minus 25
  • And what was Blair doing at CeCe’s deathbed? She may be “family,” but she’s not actually family. Minus 3
  • By the end of this episode, Blair's eye shadow had entered Twisted Sister territory. Minus 5
  • So, this Chola/Chivy storyline has been going on for a year and it gets resolved in five minutes in a hospital waiting room, setting up another story line in which the Van Der Woodsens have to take in a prickly chick who doesn't really go by the name Charlie and who is already smooching on Nate? Okay. Let us know when the second story line about Serena accidentally "killing" a guy is ready to go. Minus 20
  • No one thought to call William Van der Woodsen and trade sexual favors for a magic cancer pill? Minus 5. Because he will be back next week.
  • Chuck got beat at his own game by Dan. Minus 10 because it's only temporary.
Total: 174

Serena Van der Woodsen, rocket scientist, almost sent us into the fake, but Blair getting her groove back pushed this episode firmly over to the real side. Next week: CeCe’s will. Who gets the gin?

WARNING SPOILERS

Latest Ask Ausiello:

Question: Please tell me the infamous video doesn’t sink Dan and Blair before they even get out of the harbor on Gossip Girl. That would be a lot of buildup with very little payoff. Say Dair isn’t DOA. –Leif

Ausiello: Dair is not DOA. In fact, they’ll be going strong long enough to encounter a brand new obstacle, one that is unrelated to (and potentially much more problematic than) the video. Guesses?! Hit the comments!



Question: What’s coming up for Serena on Gossip Girl? Hopefully something other than pining over D-Bag Humphrey! —@SB_Besties via Twitter
Ausiello: There’s something big brewing for S this spring, but it’s more professional than personal (though the latter will be impacted by the former, and vice versa).

I juste LOVE Dan and Blair together! Their chemistry and history is much more interesting than the impossible love with Chuck (and after what he did to Blair with his uncle, I mean, who could possibly go back to a man like that?) and Serena and Dan don't belong to each other, I mean Serena kind of annoys me, first she treats Dan like crap to date her psycho teacher, then she hesitates between him and Nate, and now she wants him back just like that!
Blair and Dan were meant to be together since season one, remember the episode in which Dan goes to talk to Blair during the photoshoot? Since that scene I have thought that Dan and Blair would make an interesting couple

I think that the TV show will end just like the books, with Serena and Blair both single and friends.

I wouldn't be surprised if the show ended with Serena being single, but if Blair is single both Chair and Dair shippers will be so pissed haha!

I haven't watched since they came back from the break and they decided to use God as an excuse for Blair not to be with Chuck. Missed much? Also Serena and Blair are on the outs again? Seriously, over-use of a storyline much??

^ True, but one of the built in dangers of these high spirited young ensemble shows is that once everyone has fought with. dated and/or slept with everyone else, you sort of naturally run out of options...Of course, the Blair/Serena combo is still the big payoff, but I digress...

Just wait for the ending of tonight's episode (2/27). Chuck might just receive the karma he deserves.

Eugh, I did not like last night's episode. I can't work out whether the girl who plays Charlie is a terrible actor, or whether she's told to deliver every line like she's reading a lab report.
