Finally!!! Episode 3 of season 6 Gossip Girl has given me something to gush over. It’s about time. The previous 2 episodes were a bit lackluster in the CB department. But, I am happy now or at least for the moment.
There are two main reasons why I fangirled all over this episode:
Support - Chuck being there for Blair was a beautiful thing. I liked how he was able to be what Blair needed him to be and do what Blair needed him to do without her having ask, worry or micromanage. Additionally, I appreciated him being the optimistic voice, pointing out the positive aspects of the show, when Blair was stressing out over the negative. Although the event did not turn out exactly as she wanted, there was still an accomplishment and something to be celebrated.
I also enjoyed the exchange between Chuck and Blair when he was talking about his progress with his endeavors. A listening ear of a trusted friend is always a plus. Blair reassuring Chuck and letting him know that she was there if he needed her was so sweet.
Platonic relations - Well, I guess it’s not truly platonic because the desire is there, but this no physicality is killing me in the best way. I like the payoff of couples being together (i.e. sexy time), but the payoff is so much better when it’s anticipated. I don’t think I can adequately describe how magnificent the tension between these two is developing. Chuck begging Blair to order him around…died. Blair begging for an exception to the rule for one night and Chuck saying no…lost my soul. And how cute were they snuggled up not even under the covers together just to have an extra barrier between temptation.
Why are they so lovely? I can’t even.
