Gossip Girl Exclusive First Look: Dan and Blair Take Flight (or Do They?) in Episode 101!

Gossip Girl‘s runaway princess bride has landed!
We’ve got your exclusive first look at next week’s episode of the CW sudser, which picks up right where Monday’s 100th installment left off — with Dan chauffeuring a newly-married Blair away from her wedding reception from hell. Where did he take her? To the airport, of course!
As executive producer Josh Safran previously teased, the on-location shoot “was a really complicated, but super fun, big, great set piece” that yields “some of the best comedy we’ve ever done. [It's] very funny.”
A few quick takeaways from the gallery below: The princess and her pauper face an uphill battle reaching their final destination, Blair must really be in a bad place if she’s augmenting her wardrobe at an airport gift shop, and this episode is already well on its way to being our favorite GG hour of the season.
Check out the gallery below and then hit the comments with your thoughts on Blair’s honeymoon at the (apologies in advance) Dairport.

  • Like Chuck and Blair….separately. CHAIR is basically an abusive relationship that has become worn out. Each season it’s been the tragedy or romance of CHAIR, and it’s becoming mundane to the point where each line they say sounds the same now. The 100th episode would’ve been epic if they hadn’t said the same thing last season then the season before, it was same thing new words. DAIR is refreshing, and it’s how Gossip Girl should’ve been with two people, who are opposites, coming together. Chuck and Serena expect people to love them, but don’t know how to give genuine love back. If CHAIR get together, the writers will totally contradict Blair’s character because she wants to have “pure and SIMPLE love” and it’s refreshing to see a normal relationship with a build up for once with DAIR.

    • Yes, I do fast forward the CB scenes, same old nonsense that makes me want to hurl and I like my laptop to much. Actions speak louder that words anyway, she runs to Dan everytime she needs, basically her partner or boyfriend. That is what your other half should be, its delusional to think otherwise. The pact is gone, she told C she doesn’t want to be with him cause he’ll continue to ruin her life. Really, Dan from Brooklyn is the best you can come up with.

  • Michael! You posted the most adorable picture of Dair yesterday and promised us even MORE adorable picture! But that was easily the most adorable of the bunch. Oh, who cares, I am so psyched for Dan/Blair! I hope the writers do this authentically, as opposed to their usual brand of square dancing characters.

  • If you guys honestly find the show gross now because of this then why do you watch it? They have been saying this since the summer that this was going to happen. We all know that she will eventually be with chuck. Good lord get over yourselves!

  • Thank you for the adorable pics!!! you’re a gem. I love DAIR so much. D and B are so fun and fresh. Not OTT and stale like a certain other pairing. I can’t wait for DAIR to go therrrrrree (if you know what I mean ;) … then it will be sexy and funny, all good stuff for the show!

  • love Dan and Blair. They are beautiful, intelligent, sweet and flawless. Dare to Dair.

  • I would like Chuck and Blair to eventually work things out but I do think a relationship with Dan is what she needs. She has had such bad luck and I think a relationship with Dan will make her happy so I’m not bothered. I am a Chair fan at heart but I do also love Dair.
