Anonymous said: i agreed with your season finale analysis alot. but as a Dair fan, i thought otherwise about the old writer's intentions. I think the moment Blair lost Chuck's baby, it was like a statement that Chair was going to be endgame :x I really really loved Dair though T___T but I have NEVER thought they would be end game. & I really do dislike the new writer because of how Serena turned out.):

Its Louis’s baby, not Chuck. Gathering all the hints and quotes, I believe in Safran book, Dair is endgame, or at least will be the big contender for it. Too bad Chair fanatic decided to take over and destroy the biggest obstacle 1st. Oh yes, I pity Serena. I never really like her but I pity how from a likeable Serena they decided to RESET her into drug addict girl.

Maybe its just me but do you think that maybe there’s an intervention on the season finale of GG?

Yes, perhaps that I am still in denial but I can’t believe 5x24 totally took the wrong turn from 5x23. And what about Dair suddenly being shot down without any explanation?

Safran may not be the best writer all around but we do have to applaud him for creating Dair. It was beautiful. He create the possibilities of Dair since 1x04 much earlier than Chair. Then the popularity of Chair push Dair into the backseat until season 3.

Safran have crafted Dair earlier but decides its time since season 3. They drop few small possibilities but decided to become more transparent in season 3. Chair went steady in the earlier of season 3 until Safran detonates the first destruction of Chair, the IP incident in 3x17. Then he snoop in the idea of 'pure,simple love,right love' and introduce the first hint of Dair in 3x18.

"Who else could love me after what I’ve become?" looking at Dan

“I think you deserve to be with someone who make you happy”

"Because when we open our heart, we can explore a world of love and be pleasantly suprised by the people already in our life"

Not enough with the IP, they create the second destruction when Chuck sleep with Jenny and again insert Dair second hint.

"Say life is giving you signs. You ignore them because you’re afraid the thing they’re signaling you to do. But then you think, what if these sign are here for a reason and ignoring them makes me a coward"

And how can I forget that epic moment when Chuck was about to proposed and then came Dan Humphrey out of everyone punching Chuck thus stopping his proposal?

Cue season 4, Chair and Derena decided to take a break from each other with Chuck found love with Raina and Serena found love with Ben and Dan and Blair alone, heartbroken trying to get over their ex found a new love when these lonely moments actually brought them together since 4x11 (remember Safran quote "They found each other"). I will not list down all the hints since they are too many but I’ll list the big one in 4x17

"The question of whether we can fight fate will always remain a mystery, but the bigger question is what happens when we stop fighting it?

Loud and clear, fight fate will always be Chair,  fate belongs to Dair. It was so obvious. Remember the countless of times Chair trying to be together but fail miserably by a lot of things? Writers totally hinting the result of Chair fighting fate.

Then Safran decided to have Dair take the backseat again for a reason (big build up in Season 5). I think he decided to have Dair in season 5 only because they have 5 episodes left and its not enough to create a more depth for Dair. Seriously if he wants Dair as a prop for Chair, he can do it, by making Dair a short fling and end it on the season 4 finale, but he did not.

So yes, back to Chair, only to be destroyed again in 4x20. First he humiliated her in front of the royal party, then came the big controversial scene. Chuck, out of anger, push Blair, hit the glass on top of her thus cut her face with ‘a beautiful scar/injury’

"Once upon a time in the land of upper east, a beautiful girl fled from a beast"

Even Nate was scared and decided to move out, immediately, haha…

Not enough with that, they make Chuck not guilty with his behavior and throw destruction again, this time for Blair, when she decided to cheat on her fiance with Chuck.

Came season 5, with long never ending royal snooze storyline. People were speculating Louis was a prop to Chair but it was actually for Dair. It was boring but yes they crafted Dan as the perfect guy for Blair to love, helping her, supporting her behind the scenes, even trolling Chair fans when Dan brought Chair together, only to have Dair in the end. Major trolling from Safran. And yes, certainly not enough with throwing major destruction for Chair, they decided to throw a big one, when fate is certainly not shipping Chair, when both of them trying to run away only to face a big accident, fate stops them.

"But at the end of the day, our fate is decided for us" 5x10, again fate

Then Safran release a statement saying that the story will change in 5x13 and again in 5x17, so what happen in those episodes  ——> yes its Dair

"So beginning today, the past is just a prologue, it all starts from here" more like Safran way of saying 'Dair starts from here'

"And when I return, I bet it’ll be a whole new world"

Then we have Serena said “You two are gonna face a lot of obstacles” (which they did and fight all of it together) but I’m not gonna be one of them.

Then beginning 5x18, we have obstacle, some are dialogues are taken by people who never believe Dair only to be taken down with Dair still being together at the end of the day.

So, what went wrong? Safran said Chuck is not the problem for Dair but more of Dan insecurities of Blair not saying I love you back and they build it like Blair will saying it back only to be destroyed by the biggest bomb for Dair.

What actually happen? There’s not even a single hint. Chuck was busy with family issues, no time for love, Blair was being the perfect girlfriend assures her boyfriend all the way but remain platonic with her ex, Dan being insecure but still deeply in love with his girlfriend and not care about others except Blair and Serena being the sweetest friend ever supporting her best friend and her ex all the way.

What happen? In my opinion, life gets in the way. Judging from his iview, producer preview, twitter, Safran is passionate in his work and maybe have a big plans for Dair in the future but also realise that yes, life moves on so he found a new show and decided to leave GG for Smash. Hard but yes its time to move on.

Logically, someone have to step up and replace Safran and it seems like Savage is taking his place now, whether she wants it or not.

Two different people, two different views, different things that they believe in. Safran may believe in Dair, but Savage might be the Chuck/ Chair fanatic. So maybe that’s why the finale feels like its being taken out from Chair fan fiction.

Blair is actually Claire in Dan’s head (Chair fans reasoning)

Dan and Serena suddenly have sex.

Romantic grand gesture from the Bass (What Chair love)

Blair always happy with Chuck.

Chuck reject Blair (I remember Chair fans always want Chuck to reject Blair when she crawl back to him)

Blair fight for Chuck (Again Chair fans hopeful comments)

So is it coincidence that all Chair fans hopeful comments came true in one episode? Not only that current EP decided to RESET all the character except Chuck.

1) Serena

Then - Have a career, stop jumping from guest star to guest star, help her family, run gossip girl, support her best friend and her ex

To - pre-season 1 GG where she destroy her friendship by cheating to take drug while randomly hooking with a guest star on the train

2) Blair

Then - Have a supportive boyfriend, wants to become a powerful woman, growing into a more stronger character

To - running back to the ONLY person that make her weak again

3) Dan

Then- Become a supportive boyfriend, less judgmental, helping Blair through thick and thins

To - Cheated on Blair right after he thought Blair choose Chuck

And who’s coming strong this episode?

"The reason this company exist because I saved it"

"All I have done is work to protect your legacy"

"Willing to throw everything away for a girl who did nothing but toy with you"

"I help you out of hiding, I took down your enemy, I build this empire"

"The only reason Waldorf Design have a future because I gave up mine for it"

"My father was right, I always put you first and you bet against me all the time"

Its not making sense for us Dair, but yes Chuck come off as the hero in this episode.

Remember when the news when Safran going to leave and Dair fans scared that a Chair writer is going to take over. Guess what, the nightmare is here. Earlier than expected. And it looks like 5x24 is the first bomb, there’s more coming right up.

Judging from season 6 spoiler, looks like they will write Dan as the villain, Blair as the victim, Serena as the damsel in distress and Chuck as the hero.

Its time to UNDO every destruction for Chair.

Conclusion, the writing for the finale is not stupid nor the writers were drunk. Its just a BITTER writing.

Note: Looks like every people are quiet except current EP. This is life. She is the showrunner now. She will write everything that she BELIEVES in. Too bad for us Dair fans.

p/s I still remember the last act, It feels like the love of my life is leaving me forever without any reason. And with the ‘We Are Young’ song, seriously I was planning to vid a Dair video with that song, and it ruins everything. I’m still bitter, but I feel like I can accept it now. Safran tries his best and in my head, Dair is endgame. How can I ignore all the hints Safran created with just one Chair finale. Dair is not a prop for anyone, it is the story Safran wants to tell us, the one he believes in, the one who we love.

The bigger question now, will I watch season 6?

Maybe, I still love Dan and Blair individually. And who knows, magical things will happen. Last year, we never thought Dair will happen. People keep calling us names, and guess what, they heard our prayers, Dair happen. Altough I’m 99% sure the current EP direction for season 6, I’ll just stop by to see if there’s still 1% hope.

To all dairlings, Don’t be sad because its over, Happy because it happen.

I will always stay in the Dair ship, I regret nothing.

Spoilers from what I read

Chuck propose Blair on the rooftop, Blair receive message from Dan, run to him, maybe its too late.

And Chair fans been talking about the casino scene being the last part of the finale where Blair actually go to Europe to the casino with Chuck and the Bass family. What if it is true?

My Speculation

Dan and Blair might break up in the finale, thus leave both of them broken-hearted. Heartbroken Blair might seek Chuck back for comfort meanwhile Dan will go to Rome, alone.

Remember, season finale will always have the last montage on what happen, and from what I read the casino scene is actually very short so here’s my take:

Dan will pack his bag to go to Rome, Blair is at the casino with Chuck (Chair fans must be screaming “Her choice is clear, she want to be with Chuck”. Meanwhile us Dair fans heart just crush into pieces), Serena will pack her bag to leave Blair’s apartment (assuming SB didn’t end good in the finale), Nate will do Nate things.

But,

Just right before the end,

What if there’s still hope for us,

1) Blair just walk away from Chuck at the casino check her Gossip Girl for info on Dan and look disappointed

2) Blair call someone and ask “Have you found him?” (searching for Dan)

3) Blair walk and saw someone, its Dan

or

Blair walks away looking happy at first then turn sad cut to Dan at Rome, maybe meet a new italian girl then cuts back to Blair looking at her picture with Dan.

cue

Gossip Girl might say something about moving on, new start follow with something like what if we still can’t let go (i sucks at quote, but something like that, similar to 4x17 first kiss quote)

win win situation for both ship,

Chair fans - she’s with Chuck

Dair fans - she still thinking about Dan, it is not over

Yes, I know this is my hopeful ending for Dair and it might be a little fanfic but remember the awesome finale cliffhanger we get

4x17 The question if we can fight fate will always remain a mystery, but the bigger question is what happen when we stop fighting it?

Chuck said that he have to find Blair and when all of us thought that it was Chuck who comes out from the elevator, turns out it was Dan.

5x13 So beginning today the past is just a prologue, it all starts from here

This episode was full of Chair love declaration and there was so many spoiler says that she will run to Chuck, run to the Empire and yes, it really look that way when Chuck need a car to St Regis (still no sign of Dan), and right at that moment Chuck enter the ballroom, we already know, its not Chuck she choose, its Dan, right at the last moment.

So, yes, with all the Chair reunion spoilers, I feel down and given past history (last season finale) where they promote Dan as a contender when he’s clearly not, I almost give up. But yes, I’ll stay until the last moment of season finale, in case something magical happen.

Last year we thought the writers didn’t dared to Dair, but they did.

Last year people call us delusional, turns out we’re not.

Last year we thought Dair was a prop to CB, turns out Dair is still going strong.

People claim Blair won’t choose Dan, and she did.

We never thought they will become a couple, kiss, have sex, support each other, loving each other

but they did.

So, again, I’m not putting down my sword, not yet.   : )

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)

What I love
1 - The first thing Blair thought after she saw the divorce papers is calling Dan
2 - Blair must be dreaming about walking hand in hand with Dan all the time
3 - Blair smiles happily/shyly when Serena ask who she want to spend the first day as a plain Blair Waldorf
4 - Song lyrics/ Vanya and I love karaoke + Dan eye-sex
5- Dan wink at Diana, naughty Dan, I LOL (I want a scene Dan being playful like this, Blair notice and maybe smack him a little, haha)
6 - Dorota concern on Mr. Dan
7 - Met Steps (how Dan said he bought the crown from Cubic Zuconia from a costume store, how proud he look when she put it on the crown, smile bigger!!!, Dan only look at her when he snap the picture and she blush, the kiss, her most sweetest and softest thank you, running down the stairs hand in hand)
I actually have tears in the corner of my eyes when I saw how beautiful the Met scenes. How Dan tried to create the special princess moment just for her. Money in all this world can’t bought happiness.
Worth mentioning
1 - Serena as Gossip Girl. Who knows she have it in her, she’s even a better GG than Georgina. How she manipulate everything to come the way she wants. I actually excited to Serena as GG more. Power do comes with great responsibility. Use it well, S.
2 - Chuck. I do like Chuck, sometimes, when he’s nice, and funny, and not messing with my Dair.  This time, he meant well. Poor him, he doesn’t have someone to turn to. But a big applause for him for setting Blair free. And big applause to Blair to for actually sticking her decision on Dan.
3 - Nate put a photo of him with Chuck, Serena and Blair on his table. Awww!!
4 - Nate and Lola, cute (glad Nate is dating someone his age)
5 - I like Lola this episode especially the end where she model for the photographers, so Serena 2.0

07 4 / 2012


Does “vintage Blair” means the minions will be back for good? I loved Blair’s bridesmaid auditions.
Safran: It is definitely along those lines. And the minions do make an appearance in the next episode after Monday’s, but what I mean by “vintage Blair,” at least in this one case, is that she’s going to come up against an antagonist that she sets about trying to change. But that antagonist is actually not a person. It is a thing. I’m excited about it so I don’t want to spoil anything. I want people to be surprised.


What if that thing is Blair’s headband? She was associate with headband for two season until Dan take it off in season 3 episode 2.
For me, Blair’s headband represent herself more rather than she using it as an accessories. Blair’s headband is like a security blanket for her. She feel powerful when she use them. In fact, wearing headband was like being the Queen in the Constance School. She even gives Jenny a headband representing that Jenny will become the next queen in Constance.
As we all know, Blair have a problem with insecurities. She hide her real self because she was scared that if she reveal ‘her true self’ someone might back away from her(this is due to her parents, her father left her for another man, her mother was judgmental towards her earlier in the series). She also feel the pressure to hide behind her best friend who is the popular girl with no flaw.
So, with the headband, it sort of create a different her, a more powerful one, who gives order to the minion when episodes by episodes we discover that she just need someone who love her for who she is.
To be frank, when I started watching the show I didn’t like Blair Waldorf so much. I can understand the hype people make about her (her beautiful headband and her fashion) but apart from that to me she is just one of the mean girl in the movies. But like how 1x04 change Dan perception on Blair, it change mine too, forever.
Blair show us, viewers that she is just a normal girl who try all her best to fit in.


Blair : Because you take everything from me, Nate, my mom, you can’t even help it. Its who you are.
Gossip Girl : Spotted-Lonely Boy’s rude awakening. Upper East Side queens aren’t born at the top. They climb their way up in heels, no matter who they have to tread on to do it. 
Bad News Blair 1x04


It is frustrating for Blair when her best friend get everything she wants effortlessly when she have to do almost anything to get what she want.
That how it fits on how she was scared that Nate will break up with her, how she wants Chuck to confess to her before she did, how she want to win in every games with Chuck. Because she was scared, that if she let her guard down and be her real self, those people that she love will leave her.
Now let’s get back to Dan. The scene when Dan approach her in 1x04 she said,
Blair : Normally I wouldn’t be close to you without a tetanus shot
At that time, she let her guard down and listen to him. She even agrees to the term and ‘sort of accepting’ Dan.
Fast forward to season 3. Blair still adjusting to college life, trying hard to fit in, and she even hold parties to find ‘potential minion’. She struggles, again, so finding herself in need of Dan’s help. Then come the scene where Dan take off her headband. I don’t why, but I feel that the scene means something more than Dan taking off her headband. It feel like Dan take out her old self and try to show the real her (I don’t know whether this is understandable, haha)
So, beginning that day, she stop her plan, and try to fit in just like a normal teenager. She grown from a high school student to a college girl. And altough she still love power, having minion around, but she finally able to show her real self, what she want, what she need.
In 3x18, when Chuck ask her during Dorota’s wedding she said,


Blair: I want what Dorota and Vanya have. Real love, pure and simple love.
Chuck : You’ll be bored within five minutes.
Blair :  Better bored than ashamed of myself. I would do anything for you Chuck. But what if that’s wrong? I don’t like who I’ve become with you.


That moment, Blair realize that it just take pure and simple love to be happy. She saw how Dorota and Vanya, who didn’t have power and wealth but they can be happy with what they have. She realize that all the games about winning with Chuck bring her nothing but heartache. She was ashamed of who she was, who she become.


Blair: That headband give me Hillary Clinton flashback, the bad kind.
Cross Rhodes 5x16


I’m not saying ‘Queen B’ is not her, its a part of her, but the real her was the one who wants to be loved, who wants to be happy. She learn from experience. She know herself better from time to time. Just like real life, we are searching on who we are. People change as they learn more. Look back at our past, yes we are still the same person, but the person we are in high school are different like the person we are now. Just like Blair. She is her real self, Blair Waldorf, Queen B.

Note:
Wow that was long, actually just want to write about her headband whether it will making a comeback. Can’t help it when I read all the comment on ‘Blair Waldorf will not do this, will not do that, she is not her real self, she’s been taking over by someone else’. Hope this clears. Pheeww
And can’t wait on the Dan giving tiara to Blair. Pretty significant huh? He take off her headband 2 years ago, and crown her with a tiara now. She still can be Queen B, and can’t wait on how Dan fit in that storyline.

Does “vintage Blair” means the minions will be back for good? I loved Blair’s bridesmaid auditions.

Safran: It is definitely along those lines. And the minions do make an appearance in the next episode after Monday’s, but what I mean by “vintage Blair,” at least in this one case, is that she’s going to come up against an antagonist that she sets about trying to change.

As we all know, Blair have a problem with insecurities. She hide her real self because she was scared that if she reveal ‘her true self’ someone might back away from her(this is due to her parents, her father left her for another man, her mother was judgmental towards her earlier in the series). She also feel the pressure to hide behind her best friend who is the popular girl with no flaw.

So, with the headband, it sort of create a different her, a more powerful one, who gives order to the minion when episodes by episodes we discover that she just need someone who love her for who she is.

To be frank, when I started watching the show I didn’t like Blair Waldorf so much. I can understand the hype people make about her (her beautiful headband and her fashion) but apart from that to me she is just one of the mean girl in the movies. But like how 1x04 change Dan perception on Blair, it change mine too, forever.

Blair show us, viewers that she is just a normal girl who try all her best to fit in.

Blair : Because you take everything from me, Nate, my mom, you can’t even help it. Its who you are.

Gossip Girl : Spotted-Lonely Boy’s rude awakening. Upper East Side queens aren’t born at the top. They climb their way up in heels, no matter who they have to tread on to do it. 

Bad News Blair 1x04

It is frustrating for Blair when her best friend get everything she wants effortlessly when she have to do almost anything to get what she want.

That how it fits on how she was scared that Nate will break up with her, how she wants Chuck to confess to her before she did, how she want to win in every games with Chuck. Because she was scared, that if she let her guard down and be her real self, those people that she love will leave her.

Now let’s get back to Dan. The scene when Dan approach her in 1x04 she said,

Blair : Normally I wouldn’t be close to you without a tetanus shot

At that time, she let her guard down and listen to him. She even agrees to the term and ‘sort of accepting’ Dan.

Fast forward to season 3. Blair still adjusting to college life, trying hard to fit in, and she even hold parties to find ‘potential minion’. She struggles, again, so finding herself in need of Dan’s help. Then come the scene where Dan take off her headband. I don’t why, but I feel that the scene means something more than Dan taking off her headband. It feel like Dan take out her old self and try to show the real her (I don’t know whether this is understandable, haha)

So, beginning that day, she stop her plan, and try to fit in just like a normal teenager. She grown from a high school student to a college girl. And altough she still love power, having minion around, but she finally able to show her real self, what she want, what she need.

In 3x18, when Chuck ask her during Dorota’s wedding she said,

Blair: I want what Dorota and Vanya have. Real love, pure and simple love.

Chuck : You’ll be bored within five minutes.

Blair :  Better bored than ashamed of myself. I would do anything for you Chuck. But what if that’s wrong? I don’t like who I’ve become with you.

That moment, Blair realize that it just take pure and simple love to be happy. She saw how Dorota and Vanya, who didn’t have power and wealth but they can be happy with what they have. She realize that all the games about winning with Chuck bring her nothing but heartache. She was ashamed of who she was, who she become.

Blair: That headband give me Hillary Clinton flashback, the bad kind.

Cross Rhodes 5x16

I’m not saying ‘Queen B’ is not her, its a part of her, but the real her was the one who wants to be loved, who wants to be happy. She learn from experience. She know herself better from time to time. Just like real life, we are searching on who we are. People change as they learn more. Look back at our past, yes we are still the same person, but the person we are in high school are different like the person we are now. Just like Blair. She is her real self, Blair Waldorf, Queen B.

Note:

Wow that was long, actually just want to write about her headband whether it will making a comeback. Can’t help it when I read all the comment on ‘Blair Waldorf will not do this, will not do that, she is not her real self, she’s been taking over by someone else’. Hope this clears. Pheeww

And can’t wait on the Dan giving tiara to Blair. Pretty significant huh? He take off her headband 2 years ago, and crown her with a tiara now. She still can be Queen B, and can’t wait on how Dan fit in that storyline.
