Just when I think I‘m out…they pull me back in!

Good Morning upper-east siders, brooklynians, citizens of the world.

I was truly captivated by this episode. The Dan-Blair duo re-emerged from the abyss of episode 14 to feature heavily in this rather wonderful Valentine’s episode.

What better way for our favourite couple which isn’t a couple to become a couple then on the most romantic day of the year?

Well, it wasn’t to be and in the end  and I’m glad. If they do end up together the emotional pay-off is going to be even greater. Sure, the love (?) is now only in its infancy…But it is ALIVE!…(?)

First a brief recap of events.

Blair discovers Chuck has real feelings for Rena. Dan is there. He comforts her. He touches her hand. She pulls her hand away. They watch Rosemary’s Baby together (via phone).

It was very touching to see Dan’s affection for Blair following her realisation that Chuck may have feelings for someone else. The feelings are evidently mutual. Blair did something un-Blair like in submitting Dan’s article. The scene in which they bonded over Rosemary’s Baby was quite poignant in its portrayal of two lonely figures, growing closer…ever closer.

I think there are two ways this could go down. I see a scenario in which Serena’s words about Blair’s ‘Secret Valentine’ come to fruition. The writers are doing their best to really build their relationship in a nuanced and totally Un-Gossip Girl like manner. On the other hand, the narration at the end of the episode about Dan and Blair finding solace together as two lonely figures may belie the fact this is merely a transitional relationship. Serena and Chuck are busy so they become friends.

Whatever the case, their on-screen chemistry is undeniable. It’s awesome. Yippee!

Until next time

XOXO Ficus
