I persevered through Blair’s “I want to be my own woman who stands on her own without a man, but I’ll immediately turn around and marry this prince, thereby defining myself in terms of a man” hypocrisy.
I only rolled my eyes at Dan’s sudden ascension to literary darling, and subsequent overwhelming demand for his second novel, even though his first sounded like a complete dud.
I let it go when the writers broke up Chuck and Blair because of a PACT WITH GOD (and yes, it was just as ridiculous as it sounds).
However, I cannot let this go. Dan Humphrey and Blair Waldorf should not be lovers. SHOULD NOT. They are wonderful as friends. Lovers, no.
How, HOW, can you build a show around the romantic love between Chuck Bass and Blair Waldorf and then CONSTANTLY DESTROY IT FOR NO GOOD REASON? I could understand if the show showed us them growing apart. I wouldn’t love it, but I’d understand. However, I can’t abide this stupid Dan/Blair romance* at the expense of the Chuck/Blair one.
Gossip Girl, this is a straw. It might be the last one.
*FYI, Blair has now slept with every male character on the show (bar Rufus – God, please, don’t let that happen)
