After the finale I began to think about the GG couples. Actually it really began when I saw the clip of Dan talking to Blair about “signs”. Yes, the fact that it was Dan Humphrey that gave me an idea frightens even me. But the fact that I started to overanalyze didn’t.
I started to think of my OTP and then pairings in general, like a full range of pairing. Anyone that could possibly be linked to: Blair, Chuck, Serena, Nate, Dan, etc. I thought of them. Of course I couldn’t include everyone, like some of the smaller parts or minions; no sadly Gossip Girl herself didn’t make the list either (mostly due to the fact that she really doesn’t have a face on the show). I was inclining to use some of the minions because they had their reign and it ended, especially the older ones i.e. Hazel, Penelope, Isobel, Katy. It just made no sense to bring them up at this point in the show.
Then I asked Je t’adore for advice. Thank so much bb, because she has much input as I do on this.
Ok so I have to mention this: this idea (of this post) was floating around before the season finale so I had to rethink some couples again. Ok it was only Chenny because up until season finale the pair was in the realm of AU couples. Anyways, I lost my train of thought for a second.
Let’s begin with Blair and the guys she’s been coupled with: (Officially)
Chuck: We are to assume that at this point in the series that Chuck is her true love. And after everything that they been through and are still going through, we are still to assume that they are the endgame. I’m going to go on a limb and say Josh and Co assume that we forgive Chuck because of these assumptions. And you know what they say about the word assume: It’ll make an ass-out-of-u-and-me.
It’s like at this point what could make Chuck redeemable? Please tell me. Chair was the shows OTP, and to destroy the way they did. But that’s a story for another time. Chair had a certain quality that made people ship them, it started off as a game of Cat and Mouse but they became more than that. They were Chuck and Blair, Blair and Chuck, the Waldass (thank you puppet!Chair Please refer to: urbanlapixie YouTube Channel for puppet Gossip Girl season 2).
Help me understand why they would go out of there way and kill these two (not literally, maybe Chuck thought)? I really regret saying the following:
“Because somewhere in my brain/heart I secretly love, love angst a little more than fluff from time to time. Besides if two people are destine to be together they will end up together regardless of what stands in their way.” (Shameless plug to one of my FF, lol)
Like that just literally came back to haunt me.
Nate: This was another big relationship for Blair because he was her first boyfriend/love. They way they handle this couple on this show was almost as bad as Darena. They were probably worst. How is that possible you ask? Well for starters they have no actual chemistry. The scenes were a little forced and both characters had to hide their true selves away from one another.
I think what made people cheer for them was the book series. But riddle me this (hehe) Didn’t Nate leave both Blair and Serena because he couldn’t decide? Another question: Wasn’t Nate a stoner and a whore? I mean this was this love of Blair’s life but he was awful in the books and the beginning of the tv series. Why in world would you want anyone to be with him? Seriously.
They weren’t gonna last. Point Blank.
Lord Marcus: Or as I like to call him: Lord Douchebag. Where do I begin? This guy was as bland as Kristen Stewart’s personality. I don’t know if they honestly had any fans. This guys purpose was to be Chuck substitute until Chuck man-ed up and told her how he felt (we all know how that went). He came he went and I was bored. Plus he sucker punched Chuck and “fake” an American/British accent. He was pretty bad, guys.
Carter: So if you haven’t figured it out, they put the pair together because they were dating in real life. I’m not buying we he was there she was there excuse. Blair could have bumped into anyone but it just had to be Carter, right? They don’t have much history before then so that’s why I’m sketchy on this pair.
Jack Bass: They sleep together, once. We don’t get to see it, we are actually told this. Nothing scream shitty storyline like “I slept with your Uncle, but that’s all you need to know.” No flashback, no other explanation. Fail editing team, writers, and actually everyone. And then when Blair’s is being traded for sex, she’s acting like they never had it. Just like to point that out.
Cameron: This was Mr. Roger’s nephew (Please refer to TV Recappers Anonymous for the Mr. Roger reference). I swear Lord DB had more personality than he did. I mean what point did this gorgeous man serve? Please tell there was a point to his small stint on GG because otherwise don’t bring characters for longer than a period of 2 episodes if they aren’t relevant.
Please note that this is part of one of Blair/(insert name). There will be a later post on Blair/AU couples.
