    Sick of that damn story!!. Blair already made a choice. I was hoping that this story was finally over with Blair choosing Dan, but no, seems like the writers haven got any ideas…

    I think she “chooses” Dan. Actually I don’t understand why she has to make a choice again. She made one, some weeks ago. And if we like it or not, she did. END OF STROY.

    Just wondering why this episode is called “the RETURN of the ring”. I mean Chuck returned his engagemant ring, but does this mean he gets the ring back?

    I have faith that the writers know whats best for blair and thats dan.

    I HATE Blair and Dan together, it’s so boring and i think that it ruins the story line. Plus Chuck is so much more interesting and i would be done watching Gossip girl if she ends up with Dan for another season. Just end it, Chuck has been her true love all this time anyway.

    Totally agree.  The writers already made up their mind.  At this moment, it doesn’t make any sense that Blair would end up with Chuck.  I would like to believe from the beginning (S1), the writers saw something innocent and appealing with Dan and Blair scene in the hallway.  After that, there’s a story to be told between Dan and Blair.  At first, it was suppose to be about Dan and Serena but the idea about Dan and Blair would be more interesting.  Either way, it doesn’t matter just as long it’s believable and not rush.

    everyone is a moron who think blair and dan has any chemistry at all i have a better chemistry with my right hand than blair has with dan and it cannot be possible at all for blair to end up with dan, they have teasing us and showing the love and passion and raw chemistry blair has with chuck lets face they are soul mates blair makes chuck human and chuck keeps it on the edge and exciting for blair i hate the games they play with each other when there is so much love involved but i think once  chuck realizes that he has to grow up and realize how awesome blair is for her and for his future he will do the right thing and show and prove her that i mean cmon how can you people say it with a serious face that dan is good for blair have you seen them together and have you seen chuck and blair together? its like comparing fire to ice and they wont do that to serena she will eventually end up with dan like blair WILL!!!!! and i mean it BETTER!!! HAPPEN!!!! end up with Chuck Bass.

    Gossip girl was so much better when serena is with dan….now they just sleep with every one in their group!

  • omgg!!!

    omg i think the scheme and bart being back will make chuck and blair closer. SCREW dan!!!! hes not important and he has a lack of chemistry with blair and is probably not satisfying her needs if you know what i mean ;) the wrighters know everyone prefers blair and chuck and thats why shes remaking the decision! CHAIR FTW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Lyn09

    It’s going to be CHUCK. I need it to be CHUCK. Really. The chemistry is there between those two! including biology and physics.

  • tarantino

    Blair and Dan look awful together, they have no great chemistry like Blair and Chuck used to have

  • Misty.S

    CHAIRRR !!!! Blair and Chuck have the most amazing chemistry !!

  • IdaChairFan

    It´s have to be chuck, if it is Dan..
    I think I will have to sto watching my favorite show, and that would not be pretty.
    Absolutly not pretty..
    My hair kind off died last time :I

    I keeping my two fingers cross! It would be Dan. Blair should have the matured relationship and more clam situation. In the past seasons, never was a scene with out moments with dan and Blair. And in the gossip girl novel, it is Dan who is star of the book. The finale episode of season 5 titled return of the ring would means many possibilities. First, my guess it would be referring to the rocking marriage of lily and rufus. Second, probably Chuck making again proposal with Blair? Thirdly, or that Blair might finally made the end with Chuck by returning the ring again for the second time around!!!

    Solid love is formed from a strong foundation of friendship not by thrills, scheming, money and glamour.

    Chair relationship is a thing of the past. Childish ways! It is about the time that Blair serena Nate chuck and Dan be adults and have their own careers going.

    For me, Chuck asking Blair asked for her scheming is a sign of manly weakness. Dan is more matured and serene, see his relationship with Blair on equal footing.

    But I hope the writers had decided to let them grow up and end each other that fate is destiny.

    blair and chuck belong together i don’t even no how blair even like him HES FROM BROKLAN and she from the upper east side only dan and serena are together forever gossip girl is dead! if they don’t get back together i will have to find a new t.v show :(

  • Blair and Chuck YAY!

    I think i’m so attached to Blair and Chuck that i feel like I need it to be them together forever. For the sake of my well being– physically and emotionally. and “I have more chemistry with my right hand than dan has with blair” GENIUS.
    And has anyone realised that the Humphreys have a habit of screwing things up?? ESPECIALLY CHAIR? I mean, not to state the obvious but lil J RUINED chuck and blair. And please dont give me shit about “she was sad; he couldve helped”. Yeah well, you know what? Jenny “lost” nate, who wasnt even hers to begin with, while chuck on the other hand THOUGHT THAT THE LOVE OF HIS FREAKING LIFE DIDN’T LOVE HIM ANYMORE!!!! ft.engagement ring. AND he did ask her “are you sure?” just like with blair in the limo. 
    THEN when chuck and blair FINALLY made it, humpdate humphrey ruined them-AGAIN-……IN THE MIDDLE OF A PROPOSAL. Bad timing much?
    And I said “AGAIN”, cuz remember in season 2? sacred 3 words 8 letters? Yeah, well B was about to say them to C, BUT NOOOOOO, STUPID LONELY BOY JUST HAD TO RUIN IT FOR THEM, DIDNT HE? Didnt he learn ANYTHING from his father? Never mess with people in love’ makes them hate you more than they already do.
    In season 4, Dan started that downright pathetic rumour about Jack Bass, and he ruined her Birthday….. the only thing good that came out of it was that SDFBGJGBFGBAKBAWESOMEAMAZINGOMGOMGILOVEDITSOOHOTILOVECHUCKANDBLAIRpianno scene!!!!!!!!!!!! L.O.V.E.D I.T!

    So WAKE UP B!!! You deserve more than Humphrey Dumpty! And i’m that worried about Chuck&Blair because i’m pree sure that the writers/directors/producers feel the connection between them. Even ed & leighton are rooting for them. I have faith because “if two people are meant for each other, eventually they’ll find their way back together again.” SPOKEN LIKE A TRUE BASS. 

    Another thing: B & C’s chemistry is so powerful that even a handshake (S4, E6) is moving. A touch. Like seriously, the camera ZOOMED onto it. And in S5 E22, THAT EPIC HAND HOLDING? I squealed. Seriously. Squealed. Yeah crazy…..

    I just feel sorry for dair shippers’ but you’ll get over it, i mean c’om! And honestly, telling someone you love them because your scared that Chuck Bass will sweep them of their feet (with good reason!) isnt exactly “romantic”. Now, with C&B, that was like, epic season finale, NOT epic end of episode. HA. Suck on that Brooklyn. Chuck came with lavish gifts from all over Europe, a bunch of her favourite flowers, a limo, a SUIT (dan, wth were YOU wearing?), PERFECTLY GROOMED HAIR, (the f is up with ur curly wirly weir-do hair D??) AND NOT TO MENTION A WHOLE LOTTA HOTNESS! He was funny, sweet, romantic, with a tinge of sexy and ……im lost for words, but basically,  ”I love you too” is one of my favourite Chuck bass lines. I couldnt stop smiling for like, half hour after i kept re watchinng that scene…… those cute little kisses in between his,”I love you, thats two, I love you, thats three, i love you, thats four……..and so on!!!” PUT THEM TOGETHER FOR THE SAKE OF OUR SANITY!

    Oh and about Dans hair, it reminds me of a shaggy-haired incompetent buffoon. nuf said. 

    ONE MORE THING: BLAIR + CHUCK + LIMO +SEASON 1= so-hot-that-the-screen-literally-melted!!!!!

  • Cute_kitten_22

    I am 1000000% confident she will end up with Chuck, if she doesn’t it would just be the most ridiculous thing in the world!!!
    The show used to be soooooo amazing, full of chemistry! And now with stupid Balir and Dan there is nothing. I think this episode is going to get everything back on track so next season we will be planning Chuck and Blairs wedding and there will be no other men getting in the way. Chair alwaysx

  • Cutekit

    the only thing I don’t actually agree with… is that I do not feel sorry for any of the Dair fans.
    If there even are fans that is. No one like them.
    We are all in love with Chair and Chuck is blates getting the ring out this time, and Blair MUST say yes!!!!!

  • dscv

    indeed it was. i really agree with you Gaby18_92. ^___^
