TV Fanatic Staff Selection, Take 5: Chair for Best Teen Couple!

by at . Comments

Welcome to the latest opportunity for a TV Fanatic staff member to defend one of our Best Teen Couple nominees. If you missed previous editions, so far...

Now, it's up to Leigh Raines to pull up a Chair. Take it away, Leigh, and best of luck...

Who is the best teen couple on television, this website is asking? Sorry, Forwood fans, but the answer is clear.

Look, I’m an adult, so I’m not going to sit here and say that Blair has never had chemistry with another person. Yes, even Lonely Boy got some face time, but - with apologies to Dair supporters - I just feel more of a friendship vibe between those two.

So let’s agree to disagree and let me preach to all you Chair fiends out there. I need your voting to go VIRAL. Let’s face it, Blair Waldorf doesn’t settle for second or third place. Therefore, I present to you a love letter to a relationship that’s five years in the making:

The Chair defense rests.

Dear Chair,
            In the beginning, you entertained us with a friendship fueled by a mutual love for schemes and takedowns. Then, a certain champagne-doused evening, with a striptease at Chuck’s burlesque club, led to hot virginity-losing limo sex. Not even Blair’s attempt at confession could put the fire out that sparked between you two that night (twice, if I recall correctly.) Since then it’s been magnetic, electrifying, bewitching, tantalizing, scintillating and whatever other adjective you want to throw my way.
            I’m not going to lie and say these past few years have been the smoothest ride, but then again nobody ever said a great love was easy. They just said it was worth it. So what if it took you guys a few years to say those three words? What was that Chuck said during his best man speech at the end of season one? Oh yes, the importance of perseverance.
            I can’t give you up, because you two can’t give each other up. Chuck, I blubbered like a baby when you showed up at Blair’s, crying after your father’s funeral and she held your hand all through the night. When you wanted to lose yourself around the world or jump off of a building, who saved you? Blair. Against everything in her being, Blair met you at that Paris train station to stop you from running away. That was a beautiful scene.
            Blair, you two may have not been together when you didn’t get into Yale, but Chuck knew he couldn’t let you spiral with scum like Carter Baizen. He applied to Columbia without you knowing. He reminded you when you were floundering at NYU that he wasn’t Chuck Bass without Blair Waldorf. Then, there was that time he took a bullet to protect the ring he hoped to give to you one day.
            This week's ending scene - with Chuck’s overdue apology - probably sealed the deal for me. Blair, you want to love Louis, but love isn’t something that can be forced. Chuck, your apology might be too little too late, but it shows you’re growing into a better man.
            You were both too immature, conniving, and narcissistic to be together in the past. That’s why it didn’t work. But I, like so many of your viewers, know that you two are end game. So Chuck, could you please go retrieve that gorgeous Harry Winston rock and save Blair from the dullest Prince there ever was? Let’s get this show on the road kids. As Blair herself said at the end of season four: “The great loves are the crazy ones.” And you two are certifiably, undeniably and perfectly crazy... for each other.
Sincerely,
Chair fans everywhere

Chuck and Blair are Gossip Girl at this point. The show was once good but now I only stay tuned for this show. This post is excellent and I cannot wait until the series ends just so I can see these two together at last.

This is the best letter I've ever read! I agree, Leigh, I am obsessed with these two and ,damn, they need to put them back on the show. We all know they belong together so the show should just get them together already.Can't wait until these two get married.

"But I, like so many of your viewers, know that you two are end game." I love this line, leigh, because we all do believe in them. "If two people were meant to be together then eventually they'll find their way back to each other."

Ah, I love Chuck and Blair like no other couple. Ed Westwick and Leighton Meester deserve more money on Gossip Girl because it is they alone who have kept this audience tuning into this show. And I'd take piano sex over freeze frame weirdness any day. Even poor Leighton Meester made an ick face in bloopers after that disaster.

@Kay I'm no fan of the dialogue in this scene, but I'm pretty sure that honor still belongs to the Kiss of Unimaginable Awkwardness in 4x17.

Leigh, not only do you have a great name (;)) but you have great taste in couples. Chuck and Blair will go down as one of the greatest couples in tv history.

Gossip Girl Quotes

And who am I? That's one secret I'll never tell ... You know you love me. XOXO, Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl

[to Jenny] That's the thing. You need to be cool to be queen. Anne Boleyn thought only with her heart and she got her head chopped off. So her daughter Elizabeth made a vow never to marry a man. She married a country. Forget boys. Keep your eye on the prize, Jenny Humphrey. You can't make people love you, but you can make them fear you. For what it's worth, you're my Queen. I choose you.
