“But I don’t wanna be safe, I wanna be with you.” Blair Waldorf to Chuck Bass. Cue all hearts melting from that perfect scene. Continue reading
I wanted to make a recap or a speculation post because I just watched the Chair (and sadly Dair) scenes but I’m too messed up for that now. One thing is sure, Chair will never be over. Not because of the upcoming bad Dair sex, not even because Dan is a manipulative sob and not even because Blair is saying that her feelings for Chuck have changed. They will never be over because after Nate, Marcus, Elle (or Ella, I don’t really remember her name), Carter, Vanessa, Jack, Jenny, random frat guy, Eva, Louis there’s not a person in the world that can convince me that Blair and Dan ending up together is something that remotely makes sense. Dair is rushed and makes zero sense and I’m sure it will be over as fast as you can say “Brooklyn poser” so please keep calm and don’t give up. This is why I’m writing this post at this obscene hour. For any Chair fan that feels betrayed, or angry, or sad because I saw many tweets and tumblr posts where people were hating on Blair or felt like everything is pointless. You can’t give up because Blair is not herself and because we, like her, must see this through to the end.
And we would also like to thank everyone that watched Victor/Victrola and tweeted with us tonight. We trended it for more than one hour straight while nothing Dair related trended, just saying. So, be proud of this fandom and never give up on Chair.
I don’t know if it’s the obscene hour or the fact that I’m having a bad day but GG’s Riding in Town Cars With Boys upcoming episode seems to be bringing a lot of bad things for Chair fans. I think Blair will decide to stay with Chuck and maybe leave NYC for a while till things cool down. Nate, feeling ambitious all of a sudden, follows them to get the scoop of the newly rekindled romance and of course causes the car crash in a Lady D inspired SL (very creative GG). I’m sure that it’s gonna be Chuck the one who tells the driver to speed it up because the writers feel the need that he always takes the blame. Blair is going to lose the baby and blame it all on him. Of course things with Louis will not work out, as we saw from those bride Blair pics and she will find comfort in another man’s (or lets’s just call him for what he is, a frog) arms. I was actually wonder how Dair will happen (we all knew it was coming) because at this point, Blair was all about Chuck and Louis. And it fits, she won’t be able to even look at Chuck or to marry her prince and will turn to Dan because it’s easier to run from her problems, Blair is an expert at it. I just hope her and Chuck will find their way to each other soon because I don’t know how much Dair I can stomach.
I’d like to know what you guys think because I may have went a little crazy with this speculation, I’m a little frustrated.
A bit long recap and again, a bit chaotic, but we hope you’ll enjoy it and tell us what you think. xoxo, CBthePP
We tried to make a decent podcast to celebrate the Limoversary but we failed because we didn’t even wish you guys a happy CB day and we were all over the place. I hope you’ll forgive us because it’s our first audio post together, we promise to get better at it since I’m sure it won’t be the last time we make one (we had a lot of fun). So enjoy and give us some feedback. Happy Limoversary from CBthePP, xoxo
This post won’t end too well, but it won’t be cruel either. That being sad, I really didn’t like much last night’s episode. It was well written, nothing to say, but somehow I wasn’t trapped by it like I was last week. And no, is not that I didn’t like the episode because there wasn’t any CB scene. Reasons are deep, and go beyond that. Is more what I as a viewer, I’ve felt.
My rating is 5.5/10. And you, what did you think?
“The thing about expectations is most of the time, someone else sets them for you. Yet you feel like they’ve been there all along. And you can’t wait to live up to them. But just because you know what’s expected of you doesn’t mean you still can’t surprise everyone.”
Tell me what did you think of the episode in this poll!
If we had to describe the season five premiere of Gossip Girl in one word, that word would be: fun.
Seriously, Gossip Girl‘s season opener, airing on Monday, Sept. 26, is just a whole lot of fun. That’s not to say there isn’t any delicious drama accompanying all the fun. Come on now, this is GG. You should know better.
So how is Chuck (Ed Westwick) dealing with Blair’s (Leighton Meester) engagement? What’s going on between Dan (Penn Badgley) and Blair? And who the heck is pregnant?!
To make this easier, let’s tease the premiere character-by-character, shall we?
Blair: Our favorite Audrey Hepburn worshipper returns from Monaco with Prince Louis (Hugo Becker) full of love…and complaints. You see, Louis’ mother is making all of the wedding decisions, including (gasp!) the dress that Blair will wear. Blair may or may not begin to rethink her engagement when Louis refuses to stand up to his mother. Her (possible) cold feet lead us to…
Dan: Slow ya roll, Chair fans. It’s not like that. Dan—who took up softball during the summer (in a league for writers and artists!) and looks adorable in his team’s shirt—is Blair’s only friend currently in the city and she desperately needs someone to talk to. As a friend.
Lonely Boy is more than happy to offer his assistance considering he’s still harboring major feelings for Blair and all. Our evidence? Vanity Fair is attempting to publish a chapter from Dan’s novel Inside, which is all about Blair and he desperately tries to stop it from being printed and turns to an unexpected source for some help. Does he succeed? We’re not saying, but we will say Dan and Blair have a heartfelt and serious (their banter is MIA) scene in the loft that will make Dair lovers very, very happy for a moment or two.
Chuck: Prepare for Chuck like you’ve never seen him before: Truly happy! OK, we’ve seen him happy before, but this is a different kind of happy: it’s dangerous. It seems Chuck took Jim Carrey‘s Yes Man a little too much to heart because that’s his new favorite word: Yes. As in he’s down to try anything at least once, even if it puts his life in danger. At least he does it all with style and one-liners. (Here’s our favorite: “People like me don’t write books. They’re written about.”)
While Chuck and Blair don’t come face-to-face in the episode (He is in L.A. being a daredevil and all), he definitely still feels her presence when an envelope containing a certain invite arrives.
Nate: Attention! Nate Archibald finally has a storyline! Whee! We had a blast watching Nate run around L.A., pretending to be a movie star and hooking up with Elizabeth Hurley (who is awesome and gorgeous and scheming and we love it!) and it’s all thanks to Chace’s underrated comedy skills. We’re glad the show is finally highlighting the goofy side of Nate.
That being said, Nate has an epiphany of sorts in the episode: He’s kind of lost. (Better late than never, Natey!) Where that takes him should be really interesting to watch this season.
Serena: S is a working girl, y’all! She’s got a job as a production assistant on a film with David O. Russell and is in some fierce job competition with—drum roll, please—10 Things I Hate About You‘s Ethan Peck! Yes, Ethan is in the premiere and he’s kind of a jerk. Sad panda.
One of the episode’s highlights includes all the Chuck, Nate and Serena interaction, which had kind of a season-one vibe. The Non-Judging Breakfast Club (minus Blair at the moment) lives on! We totally wanted in on their group hug.
Not enough Gossip goodies for you? Here’s a few other tidbits we can tease:
- It’s revealed what Jenny (Taylor Momsen) is up to pretty early in the episode. (She’s not in Hudson anymore.)
- What are the parentals up to? Rufus (Matthew Settle) is definitely becoming suspicious of Dan’s feelings for Blair, while Lily (Kelly Rutherford) is still redecorating (off-screen).
- Remember the term “Three words, eight letters” from season two? Of course you do. It’s brought back in the premiere and has nothing to do with Chuck and Blair.
- And finally, yes, someone is in fact pregnant. Yes, it’s shocking. Yes, the reveal comes near the end of the episode. Yes, we will be in deep trouble if we say anything else on the subject.
Leighton Meester has revealed her dream storyline on Gossip Girl.
Speaking to Digital Spy while promoting her movie The Roommate, Meester explained that the show is currently focusing on the dynamic between Blair and Dan (Penn Badgley).
“I think, stuff that’s happening right now, we’re dealing with the friendship and relationship of Dan and Blair and seeing where that goes,” she said. “Seeing what happens with Chuck and Blair.”
When asked what her ultimate storyline would be, Meester replied: “Probably that she ends up with Chuck. And that she discovers he’s a prince! That would be pretty cool.” – SOURCE
