No me gustó el final de GG. No es que me esperase ninguna maravilla, ni que me sorprendiese el "fueron felices y comieron perdices después de haberse pegado mil y una puñaladas por la espalda". Pero sin duda lo peor de esta series finale fue la revelación de Gossip Girl en cuestión: porque no era necesaria, porque es totalmente inconsistente (estaría bien revisar la serie solo para ver todos los momentos en que Dan se sorprende al recibir un mensaje de GG aun estando solo en la habitación), y porque destroza un personaje que, junto con Blair, era lo mejor de la serie. Y, además, al hacerlo se lleva a todos los demás por delante: El perdón forzado los ridiculiza, especialmente a Serena. Y ese momento Blair en el que esta vuelve a repetir el "porque no forma parte de nuestro mundo" la hace volver de cabeza a la primera temporada, eliminando cualquier rastro de evolución o madurez. Anyway, estos dos artículos analizan todos estos temas y más, así que si vosotros también estáis decepcionados con este final, os animo a echarles un vistazo:
Who "Gossip Girl" is and why finding out ruined everything:
"The point of Gossip Girl was that she was omniscient. She was everybody. She was nobody. She was, essentially, a faceless, nameless entity that represented the general grossness of our voyeuristic, schadenfreude-driven society. She relentlessly exploited young women for the sake of entertainment. She was Perez Hilton at his filthiest, most vile moment, but so much worse, because she was bullying children, not celebrities. She was not Dan Humphrey."
"So now, Serena finds out that one of the people she's closest to in life -- a person who has been a lover, a family member, and a friend to her -- betrayed her on a consistent, systematic, calculated basis throughout her weakest moments. And she immediately forgives him, because it all turned out okay. "What he did was write a love letter," she says. No, Serena, what he did was tell the world you had an STD. What he did was make it abundantly clear that you are still the same weak-willed, easily-influenced child who returned to New York City with her tail between her legs five years ago."
“It was as if they belonged on a different show, because their storyline was vastly superior to everyone else’s dull drama. Dan and Blair together are like Harry Burns and Sally Albright reincarnated — the couple was obviously inspired by When Harry Met Sally. The show even recreated their famous phone-movie date for a Dan and Blair scene. The history of their relationship parallels the iconic film couple; the two began as enemies, became friends and eventually a couple.”
"The toxic and emotionally abusive relationship between Chuck and Blair is just disturbing to watch. I will never understand the appeal of a romance where the woman has no self-respect. Blair literally lets Chuck treat her as his property. Who can forget in Season 3 when Chuck sold Blair to his uncle Jack as a prostitute just to save his precious hotel? How about the time when Chuck was drunk and physically abused Blair out of anger that she was engaged to a prince? Apparently that kind of relationship is Blair's idea of an epic romance. That's just sad. Even sadder is the fact that there are young female fans who buy into this idea.
