Dan/Blair: Why it Should (And Could) Happen
Find yourself laughing out loud at my suggestion? (And no, not in a lol! kind of way). Well, if you’re a serious GG watcher, I would stop now. You might be surprised.
Dan and Blair are one of the few couples that still have yet to be explored, and while some of you may currently be gagging from where you sit, hang on. There is definitely still much to come from this chemistry-filled pairing.
I know you’ve secretly been feeling a little something-something from them this season – especially recently. For me, this couple has been destiny ever since Dan and Blair had a heart to heart on the floor of Eleanor’s studio (remember? After Blair has been rejected from her own photoshoot?) Dan talks to her about their feelings, and they seem to understand each other in a way that only two polar opposites could.
Blair: Serena sent you here to talk to me?
Dan: No believe it or not I actually came here myself.
Blair: Normally I wouldn’t be this close to you without a tetanus shot.
This is the perfect example of why Blair and Dan’s “frenemy” chemistry would lead to the perfect relationship. Their quick wit and biting comments have just the spark to keep any duo alive.
Here’s my ideal scenario. Blair, still mourning over the loss of Chuck, falls into the arms of an unassuming Humphrey. Although she’s horrified with what she’s done, she just can’t seem to resist, and the two of them carry on a secret affair, under the noses of everyone – and maintain in public their intense disdain for each other.
Why would this work? Well, Blair and Dan’s best scenes have always been the ones with their red-hot chemistry that is somewhat undercover. Take a look at this scene from last season – were the writers already sowing the seeds for some potential action between the two of them? Who knows.
With the arrival of last episode, I know that some of the scenes between Blair and Dan sent the GG fanworld abuzz with rumours of a hookup – or a desire for one. Is it a real possibility in the future? GG creator doesn’t rule it out:
“There are only so many combinations [you can explore] on the show, so I think you have to be open to all of them at some point. So, certainly, we have an open mind when it comes to them… Those two are really gold when they’re together. They have great on-screen chemistry.”
I couldn’t agree more. And with the finale apparently delivering two “OMFG!” moments, we just can’t wait to see if Dan and Blair get up to something behind the scenes.
