"The sacrifice she's making is for the greater good of the man that she loves," executive producer Josh Safran tells THR of Blair's internal struggle post-car crash. read the whole interview at the source


The Hollywood Reporter: Blair seems to be entering into a new phase, especially with her spirituality. How long will that last?

Josh Safran: Blair very much believes that this pact she has made with the powers responsible for saving Chuck, she will move forward with that belief undeterred. When we started the season, we talked very much about works that were meaningful to us and inspired us and some of the works that came out of that conservation were The Talented Mr. Ripley and The End of the Affair. We knew from the very beginning we were going to tell a story much like the Charlie/Ivy story has been inspired by The Talented Mr. Ripley. 
Blair's always had faith, in all different ways, whether it's faith that someday my prince will come or faith that she went to confession in season 1. The sacrifice she's making is for the greater good of the man that she loves.

THR: There was a period of time that passed after the accident. Will Blair still deal with the loss of her baby throughout the season?

Safran: We were conscious of course to give a time jump in the episode. Obviously Blair very much mourns in that episode and she will continue to mourn, but we wanted to get a little bit of distance from the actual event. What Blair is going through is very, very painful and to watch that is also very, very painful. She's also trying to come to grips with it. She might let loose a little more than she normally would at her bachelorette party -- and someone might take advantage.

Here's a thought: If you think a miscarriage is too sad and painful to be properly addressed and dealt with, then how about you don't use one as plot device next time?

I don't know if this comm is still alive, but I'm glad as hell it exists, because it is needed. I may have squealed with joy upon finding it and then read the entire archive.

Anyway, I wrote a piece of meta that I think is appropriate for inclusion here. After doing a recent rewatch of the show/catch-up on everything I missed since I drifted away in the third season, I had a looooooot of thoughts on Jenny's story arc.

This is not a short post. ALSO: trigger warnings for rape, sexual assault, and discussion of rape culture.
