…So I have succumbed to pop-cultural pressure and reverted to the ‘Dair’ moniker to describe our favourite inter-borough couple. Blan is dead. It really did kind of suck anyway.

Wow. What to make of tonight’s episode? It was perhaps the biggest cliffhanger known to man-kind, as the instant Dan and Blair kissed and morphed into Dair, Gossip Girl whispered xoxo and that was that.

I enjoyed the episode. I liked the fact it demonstrated how good Dan is for Blair. She is no longer the shrill, hyper-active, vindictive classist cut-throat bitch. Well, she is…but she has definitely mellowed. Moreover, it finally addressed the question of whether Dair even exists. Was it all in the Ficus’s mind? It’s a resolute NO!

Dair recognise they may indeed have feelings for each other that extend beyond a common appreciation of the arts. Sure, it’s a friendship which is built on shared interests and their mutual intellectualism. But it has grown into something on an emotional level partly inspired by their loneliness.

I guess we want know what the kiss will reveal until… April!!!! (NOOOO!)

I still have concerns that a relationship between the two can’t endure. I sure hope it does. The specter of Blair and Chuck (Buck?…Chair?) still hangs over Dair like the ‘Dark Mark’.  But Chuck and Serena are caught up in their own melodrama and I hope this continues.

Dair is the centre of Gossip Girl romance. Dair is the centre of Gossip Girl fandom.

Viva la Dair!

Until next time

XOXO Ficus
