It wasn’t that long ago that she and I were working side by side at W and I totally fell for her - Dan Humphrey
Finally, the moment Dan fall for Blair. But I don’t know why, when I was watching Season 4 for the first time I always thought that Blair is the one who will fall for Dan (clearly Humphrey know how to kept his feeling under wrap). So this is the list of the little things that show Blair like Dan in Season 4 - 11-18 (in my opinion, of course)
Blair like Dan
1. 4x11 The Townie
Blair went to a road-trip with Dan, possibly something new and weird for her and maybe she discover something new about him. Notice Blair shock face when Serena invite Dan for a road-trip, that’s one.
2. 4x12 The Kids Are Not Alright
Blair still keeps the ticket (Dan doesn’t count, he found the ticket in his pocket) and throw it away after the holiday ends (denial, lonely holiday break)
Blair disappointed face when he said he’s at her apartment to see Serena (did she thought he’s there to ask her out for a movie, aha)
“They’re all good men before something happen to them S. Some of them stay good, no matter how they’re treated” Even Serena notice how weird that Blair said that, she even brush it off by saying she hate him (obviously its not)
Blair look of concern when she saw Serena ‘dump’ Dan at the party
This one was so obvious. Blair actually invite herself to go to the movie with Dan. Pretty cool for a girl to make her move first.
3. 4x13 Damien Darko
She totally drop her scheme on sabotaging Dan when Dan bought her food (heart melting, I hear?)
“I thought this fake friendship might be real” Blair was in denial on how Dan was not her friend all the time when deep inside her heart she wants it to be real
4. 4x17 Empire of the Son
“I have found my center, that’s all” So happy on content, even inviting Dan over
“Why aren’t you at Moma meeting me?” She’s angry when he’s standing her up, even when she didn’t show up
“We’re not done here” Clearly she wants a reason and she is not satisfied on why he is standing her up
Still not satisfied, she even come to Brooklyn to reason why she didn’t show up
“Hey, so did you see the post of gg about some huge secret coming out?” I remember rewind this scene a few times because Blair was innocently excited for the secret coming out. And Dan comes nearby, with the “impolite to interrupt”, funny.
The kiss, she pull him in (she totally wants to kiss him too)
5. 4x18 The Kids Stay In The Picture
Denial Blair, stay in bed for a week because she just kiss Dan
Blair is disappointed when she Dan the kiss meant nothing for him
(Side Note: I only stop until 4x18 for Blair since Blair focus on someone else since then. There are still many obvious signs like she always turn to him, she being giddy and smiley all around him, her plausible deniability, denial. Anyway this is the points where Blair might like Dan. The second part after you know someone, you realize you want to hang out with them more, want to see them, not knowing what it means)
Dan like Blair
Like he said, he fell for her when they are at W. And yes, it was visible after that. He hang out with her at W, the holding hand for support (this is the one of the best dair scenes I like), watch Rosemary Baby with her, write her blog for her..etc so much hints that show he likes her and are falling in love with her.
Now I hope we get Blair’s pov soon, the writers been holding Blair’s pov for so long, wonder it will worth the wait.
Hope for Blair’s pov: I want a scene where’s Blair running to see Dan (something similar to “Dan loves me for me” scene, but longer) to prove her love for him and there’s flashback to all her scenes with Dan and us Dair fans will be screaming “She did love him” (Classic movie scene but worth it)
