Dan and Blair : GossipGirl
So, I just finished re-watching Gossip Girl on Netflix and the one thing that always REALLY bothers me is the way Dan and Blair's relationship. Fuck Blair and Chuck. by art, literature and film, a major bonding point for them and honestly, a marker of a great budding relationship. The revelation that Gossip Girl was actually Dan all along probably seemed . and as the Chuck/Blair relationship became increasingly toxic in.
Dan and Georgina This one is easy. Georgina pretended to be someone else when she first met Dan. That was back when Dan and Serena were together and Georgina was Serena's frenemy. However, there's one big reason why Dan and Georgina as a couple hurt the series: At the end of season 3, Georgina showed up at the Humphreys' loft pregnant.
Of course in a situation like that, it makes sense to get a paternity test. Dan did or at least thought he didbut it turned out he wasn't the father.
Georgina used him because he was the nicest person out of those she'd been within the right time frame. Dan and Blair Some people liked Dan and Blair together. No matter how you felt, however, it was a pairing that had to be explored at some point. Once Gossip Girl had the two of them begin to become friends and bond over movies and art, it was inevitable.
If nothing had come from it, there would have always been that question of "what if? Dan and Blaire's relationship may not have been considered "end-game", but it was happy to see the two characters bond over their love of movies and art. Their dynamic was entertaining enough that even though they weren't at their best together, it didn't ruin the series.
It was never a relationship that was going to last because they were both really in love with other people. Their endgames were obvious long before a romance was even a possibility. It wouldn't have been entirely unbelievable for them to give a relationship another try. What was crazy was that they apparently ended up together, given the flashforward to Dan and Serena's wedding.
That happened after, in an attempt to win his ex-wife's heart, he used her health against her. He faked her cancer after she'd gotten better because he'd fallen in love with her again. Rather than face any real consequences for that, everyone forgave him. Oh, and who could forget the fact that he had an affair with Lily's sister?
William should have ended up alone, not with the woman he manipulated. Jack and Georgina Who would've thought that a bright spot in the mess of the series finale would be a new couple? The last episode of the show featured a time jump to Dan and Serena's wedding.
At some point during the five years, Jack and Georgina apparently got together. Surprisingly, it wasn't the worst thing to happen. Really, of the new or reunited couples shown gathered for the wedding, they were easily the best.
Lily and William back together made no sense, nor did Rufus and Lisa Loeb dating. Neither Jack nor Georgina would ever be called a good person, even by Gossip Girl standards, but maybe they worked together.Top 30 Dan/Blair Moments 2007- 2011 PART 1
It's too bad there wasn't more of their relationship on the show. Dan and Serena Lonely Boy and S. The fact that they got together isn't the problem.
In the earlier seasons, it wasn't hard to root for them. Chuck made her miserable for years, and Dan had been making her so happy that other characters on the show were actually confused by her new attitude.
If Blair had chosen Dan because she had actually moved on from an unhealthy relationship with Chuck, it would have changed everything. Instead, their romantic relationship feels rushed and inauthentic.
