* Josh Safran, ''Series/GossipGirl'' showrunner for the second half of season four and for season five, wanted to do this with Chuck and Blair in the season three premiere in order to make his own favorite ship Dan/Blair happen. Given that the entirety of season two was devoted to a WillTheyWontThey between Chuck and Blair, the two of them not getting together until the last scene of season two and them being [[FanPreferredCouple by far the most popular ship of the show]] such a development would have been strange to say the least.

Likewise, Molly stated that she dumped Jim offscreen after only a few dates, [[spoiler: which was fortunate, given that he turned out to be Moriarty]], and [[spoiler: has now apparently split up with her ''fiancé'' between episodes.]]
