I'm pretty cynical about the dowry plot. I feel like they're treating Blair like property again, but this time so Chuck can reverse what he did in the IP and find a way to stop what Louis and the royals are doing. I wish Blair would fight it off herself, but she completely accepted it.

I completely agree. The dowry plot is such a disgusting medieval way to keep Blair tied to Louis, and IDEK how it is supposed to work. When did Blair even sign a contract? Why didn't she go to Cyrus or Harold, who are both supposed to be star attorneys?

And of course the writers don't get that the real problem is Chuck/Louis treating Blair like she is their property, and not if they are selling her or "buying her free". Seriously, I have no words for this mess.
