We first saw a hint of a potential pairing between these two cohorts in last month’s fall finale. But will their relationship evolve beyond two accomplices into something more…romantically inclined? The folks over at TVLine.com seem to think so:
Although executive producer Stephanie Savage declines to say just how close the two will grow, she believes that the relationship is rife with potential. “The Dan and Blair connection is something that’s been there from the earliest episodes,” she tells TVLine.com. “Their relationship to Serena, and the degree to which they’re polar opposites and represent everything that the other hates, makes their dynamic really charged. At the same time, they are characters that have a lot in common. They are the most book-smart characters. They share a lot of the same interests. And as much as they might want to hate each other, there are a lot of reasons for them to like each other.”
So what does this mean for the rest of our upper east siders? How will their past loves react? And more importantly, what are we going to name them? Blan or Dair?
