It’s that time of the year again. Yesterday aired the finale of a season that I think was promising but it turned out to be annoying and illogical. I expected a lot from it.
The baby storyline and the baby possibly being Chuck’s, the ending of Blouis engagement before the 13th episode, the ending of DB in any possible form… and bla bla bla. Instead I got a baby killed, we got Louis for FOURTEEN episodes and a wedding on the 100th that had to reward fans but instead it make them quit the show; we got DB for SEVEN freaking episodes of boredom and illogical plots that made me think I was watching another show.Plus, they’ve destroyed Blair and Serena to prop what made this show fail. And Blair’s character, what they did to her was unacceptable. But she eventually got back to herself in 5×22 and I think we can say she got back to her old self in this finale.
On the bright side, we got a matured Chuck and Monkey! I loved Monkey. I loved Chuck this season. I loved the friendship between Nate and Chuck. I love Chuck wanting to take his responsibilities.
The nice things weren’t enough to fix the bs that has been this season. Poor writing, lame plots, illogical characterization. I didn’t hate it but I didn’t love it either. I can only save few episodes: 5×03 and the last C&B scene that makes Chuck feel again; 5×06 and the amazing apology at the end with “Video Games” in the background; 5×09 “The lightest thing that ever came into my life”; 5×10 and Chuck wanting to raise Blair’s baby; 5×22 and the NJBC and the old, classic Blair and the old Chuck and Blair subtle banter. The finale was also nice, but I’m not sure if I want to put it in this list. The C&B scenes didn’t disappoint, and I’m glad we finally got our final choice and hope for next season.
The rest is not relevant to me. In comparison, S4 was better.
And you, what did you think?
