@S The only "epic fail" is you and your delusions about DB ever being an endgame as is your delusion that Chair is all about sex. It's truly hilarious. We're going on 5 years of Chuck and Blair and it's all leading to them, so you van go weep and cry in your little corner. Fact is there are more Chair fans and Chair are going to end up together. So, you can rage all you want but Chuck and Blair are inevitable.

How very pathetic Dair fans look when they are desperately clinging on to their one and only cliche that is 'I was once a Chair fan but not now because I am bored.' LOL! you are either a fan of someone or not. I have never thought people could be so proud of being fickle but yeah right, you are a Humphrey fan! its in your nature to be fickle.
At least don't use Chair to make silly excuses for your pathetic cliche ship.This strategy is getting old and we are bored.

I love how people "shipped" Chair up to 3.17 and all of the sudden are all "He's a rapist, he ruined her cotillion, he this, he that" so you're telling me that up to 3.17 you didn't mind Blair was in love with THAT?! I'm sorry but that makes me laugh!

"You're special enough on your own, you don't need some group to say you are"
"You're the most powerful woman I know"

He applied to Columbia for her, meaning that he knew her potential and that she deserved to be in an Ivy League College"

But most of all, the mere fact that he loves her and the way he looks at her means that he knows and admires all of her traits. She doesn't have to ask him for a 24 hours free pass to be a bitch, he'd actually help her with that.

You really don't get it. They're not redeeming Chuck FOR Blair, they're doing it because he needs it to even live a normal, healthy life. And I'm sorry you hate him so much that you'd rather he just die alone in a gutter, but it's not going to happen.

As far as Chair are concerned, they will end up together because of how much they love each other, end of story. If you had read any of the other comments here, you would know it's not just about "limo sex". People have so many valid, thoughtful, articulate reasons for why they love these two together.

Now, I don't judge you for presumably loving the mind-numbing mediocrity that is Dair, so kindly quit generalizing us for preferring a vastly superior couple.

Great post!
True and accurate.
I used to be a Chair fan too and tried to ignore all the horrible things that happened between them but enough is enough.
I feel very strongly that they should never get back together again. they had their (many) chances and it didn't work.
To redeem Chuck just so he can end up with Blair is feeling so fake to me- I just don't buy it.
I'm sad that after all the awful things that happened some fans still root for them because 'they have great limo sex' and they are 'epic'.
Yeah, Epic FAIL.
Open your eyes, people.

@ALF @pty @Maribells Nice counter to @Jonas who evidently only watches the show through his Dair tinted goggles. When a poster ignores what Blair has done and only talks how terrible Chuck is, I discount them automatically as a Dair lover who doesn't seem to watch the same show I do. I too laughed at the "She's intelligent, she's intuitive; she weeps when she watches Nights of Cabiria" thing because while Chuck ALREADY knew Blair had this side Dan still failed to see her dark side as Chuck does. What Dair posters like @Jonas fail to remember is Blair is not some whimpering flower that Dan needs to rescue. As much as they wish that Blair would never be happy with that or love that. She loves a strong,powerful man who knows her and can call her on her mistakes,not follow her around like a dog wanting the bone he'll never get.

And @Jonas Joey Potter was ,perhaps, the most annoying character ever so that couple may have been good but certainly not the best ever. I get you like Joey because she and Dan are about on the same level of GTFO off my screen level, but please, I question you for just saying Joey and Pacey were the best ever. Please go watch better movies and better TV.

"Everytime I read someone who hates Chair say that these two are too damaged, Chuck is a big bad abuser, they can't never work it's too late yadyada, I imagine the GG writers reaction a la Barney stinson, CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!!!"

Ha, I think the same thing! It's exactly why they're working on redeeming Chuck this season. Nothing worth having comes easy, after all.

lol. Everytime I read someone who hates Chair say that these two are too damaged, Chuck is a big bad abuser, they can't never work it's too late yadyada, I imagine the GG writers reaction a la Barney stinson, CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!!! ;D I love Chair, they are the most compelling couple on Gossip Girl. Period.

@Jonas - Not only do I disagree with every word you've written, but I also am laughing at your name. LOL.

@Jonas- I respect your opinion and agree with you that the show is for fun, not arguing. We all love the GG, though, so I think we can discuss it amicably :-).

There's no denying that Chuck and Blair's relationship has been tumultuous but it's honestly part of what appeals to me. I am a fan of the heightened reality though. Anyway, I have to agree with Maribells on some of the points. I've never understood the complaint that Chuck wasn't around for Blair's college crisis. Chuck didn't even know what was going on with Blair because she wouldn't take his calls (he asked Serena if Blair changed her number). You can't support someone if you don't even know what they're going through. And side note - I always hated that the show acted like not getting into Yale is tantamount to your emotionally distant father dying suddenly. I also don't hold anything against Chuck when Blair said "I love you" again in the finale since Chuck literally just found out she slept with his UNCLE a month after his dad died! I actually think they could have ended the season with Chuck still angry about Jack but fans would have flipped. I won't defend Chuck's actions in the latter half of season 3 and the obvious stuff in season 4. However, Chuck didn't think Blair loved him when he was with Eva (basically same deal with the Raina situation too) so he wasn't intentionally trying to hurt her at that point.

Anyway, even as I recount all that has happened between these two- the good, the bad and the ugly- I can't help but love Chuck and Blair. The writing has been far from perfect but I love the grand feeling of the story. It's all about the "C" word for me too - chemistry. I know it's cliche but Ed and Leighton always deliver. I enjoyed I Am Number Nine and can't wait to find out where we go from here!
