Starting January 18, 2010 we will be resuming our weekly discussions on various characters, couples, and plot points for the show Grey's Anatomy. If you are interested in seeing a similar discussion for another show let Danielle know. Be sure to check out some of the new fanfictions that been posted and show the writers your support!

Chuck Bass
Which is why the ending didn't really make sense to me. I liked the symmetry of starting the season with the "3 words, 8 letters" intro and then ending it with him finally saying them, but I thought there were so many other points in time where he had more of a reason to say them--when he came to apologize for the brunch, when he found her with Carter, when she was losing herself at the Vanderbilt party, in the restaurant when she told him she'd leave Nate for him, at the graduation party when she basically begged him to finally tell her. I didn't see what changed between that party scene and the sidewalk scene. She wasn't going anywhere. She wasn't with anyone new. Why then?

Chuck Bass
I agree. But what was the push that finally made him express it?

Gossip Girl's Identity
Same here. I'll have to go look now too. I did notice that when Dan and Serena are making out up against the wall in Victor/Victrola someone walks up the steps and says, "Get a room, Serena," and that her voice sounded an awful lot like Gossip Girl, but I figured it was just coincidence.

Gossip Girl's Identity
Ha! I'd love to read the Dorota theory. That would be hilarious. I hadn't really thought about it either until my friend got me started on trying to figure it out. Now I can't stop thinking about it. lol

Chuck Bass
A thread to discuss Chuck Bass. ^_^

I find Chuck to be such a deliciously complex character. On the one hand, he's completely manipulative and sexy, but on the other hand he's so very insecure and starved for affection. I'm curious to hear other people's thoughts on why it took him so long to finally say the "three words, eight letters" to Blair. I was discussing with one of my 3D friends, and he thought it was because Chuck believes Blair deserves better. I think that's certainly part of it, but I think the bigger part is what was addressed in the finale--fear. We see Chuck's attempts at having a relationship with his father get bitterly rejected again and again. I think Chuck can't tell Blair he loves her at the beginning of the second season because he's afraid she won't say it back. (Which is why he's so intent to get her to say it first circa 2x8.) But after she does say it, my theory doesn't exactly hold up. I guess I think he's afraid she'll change her mind? But why does he finally say it at the end of the finale? What changed between the scene where she's basically begging him to tell her at the party and the final declaration by the limo?

Gossip Girl's Identity
My top three picks are Georgina, Chuck, or Blair.

Georgina is certainly malicious enough to spread rumors about the people she was most connected to at school, and all of the dirt on people could be a way for her to stay occupied while she's abroad. Plus she has a line in season 2 to Serena about how she knows things about Serena's friends and family before she does. And her names starts with a G just like Gossip Girl.

Chuck is also evil enough to get pleasure out of revealing people's deepest secrets. The only really damaging blast about him (the one revealing that Blair was sleeping with two guys in season 1) was sent to Gossip Girl by him. He likes to be in control but in a much more behind the scenes way than say Blair does. Also, I think that Gossip Girl's "coward" label for him in the finale was very much how he was feeling about himself at the time.

Blair seems to fit the stereotypical Gossip Girl profile, and the blast about her and Jack wasn't sent out until moments after she knew Jenny was going to reveal the secret anyway. And it would make sense to me if Blair wanted that secret out in the open and off her chest before she went for it with Chuck again. I don't think it's Blair, though, because I think if she had the power of Gossip Girl she would have used it to retake her throne, and Gossip Girl's season 1 blasts nearly sent her away to France.

Gossip Girl's Identity
I'm finally all caught up on Gossip Girl, so I thought I'd go ahead and jump start this section of the board. :happyspin:

Who do you guys think Gossip Girl is? I'm very interested to hear theories.

(Oh, and I haven't read the books, but if her identity is revealed for certain in them, please, don't tell!)

Which Character Are You?
I got Pete. The description definitely did not sound like me. Oh, well.
