In this last season, the story is playing out like the producers started by choosing the “end-games” the fans wanted to see and have been struggling to build the story backwards from those problematic conclusions. All they know is that Serena and Dan and Blair and Chuck are 4eva; it doesn’t actually matter how they get there, right?
It’s lazy to pander to such a small but vocal fan base, but it’s even lazier to pander without much of a believable plan.

#remember that time dan and blair were enemies #remember that time that dan and blair saw one movie over a lonely holiday break #remember that time dan and blair worked with each other and wrestled each other on the floor of a party and dan fell for her #remember that time dan and blair said just one kiss #remember that time that dan and blair almost ran away to the hamptons #remember that time dan and blair became best friends #remember that time that dan and blair became lovers #remember that time that dan and blair broke up without even saying goodbye #i don’t remember the last one but i sure as hell remember the rest #dair
Honestly, though. Can we talk about how truly appalling everything about this scene is? After everything he’s done to her, after all the shit he’s put her through, after the years of emotional (and physical) abuse, we actually have to be subjected to this? We have to be subjected to more emotional abuse? We have to be subjected to her groveling to get him back even in the face of the poison he’s throwing at her? Like he’s the one who is owed something? Like he’s the one who always put her first (L o fucking l to that one) to his own detriment? Like she wasn’t the one who constantly sacrificed her self-worth and dignity for him? And he does this again. Degrades her again. Questions her worth again and instead of kneeing him in the crotch, Blair actually wants to be with this asshole? She actually buys into his bullshit about betting on him and enables it? Fuck this shit. It is sad that this show is aimed at young women.
BLAIR: Humphreys are not escort material.
DAN: Let’s see if we can change that stereotype.
