‘Gossip Girl’ finale review: Blair chooses [spoiler!]

She made her choice.

Did you see that coming? (Warning: If you haven’t seen Monday night’s finale for “Gossip Girl” yet, you probably want to stop reading now.)

As delightful as it was the past few weeks seeing Dan and Blair together (and really, it was for us rather delightful), we were hardly surprised to see the relationship crumble over the course of the finale — mostly because Blair simply could not shake the feelings that she had for Chuck.¬†Unfortunately¬†for her, the problem was that Chuck was actually starting to get over some of the feelings that he had for her.

With this in mind, the dynamic for season 6 has been set — Blair is going to everything she can to get together with the man that she has loved all along, while Serena is going to have to pick up the pieces after Dan blames her for destroying his new relationship. (This may also further some of substance abuse problems.) Of course, all of this is made worse by the fact that Serena does still have some feelings for him that are probably never going to be anything more than that — that is, unless Dan manages to do a 180 moving forward.

Overall, the finale was a dramatic (if a tad predictable in some ways) end to a fifth season that has contained some of the best moments for the show — from a wedding to new relationships to even some moments that we never saw coming.

What did you think about the finale, and do you feel that Blair made the right choice?
