Blair–Dan relationship | Gossip Girl Wiki | FANDOM powered by Wikia
One of my favourite quotes that Dan says to Blair speaks volumes of how healthy their relationship is. In Season 5, Episode 12, he says: “That. Here's our handy guide!) If Liz and Dick had been Blair and Chuck instead, it would have been entertaining on purpose instead of by accident. Could a normal relationship withstand an attempt to sell the girlfriend for a. On the contrary, as much as everyone hated it, I think Dan and Blair made when Dan can't help but come to aid Blair with advice during her.
The same formula became recycled: Serena running away to a different city because she was afraid of facing her problems, Blair reuniting with a boyfriend who doesn't treat her with respect, and Nate dating the most recent attractive female recurring guest star.
I was completely caught by surprise by the amazing chemistry between Dan and Blair "Dair".
These two were from completely opposite worlds, but are so similar in many ways. The two self-righteous personalities are both the most intelligent of the group, so their witty banter with each other became comedy gold.
They both share the same passion for art, film and literature, so we got fun references that film buffs could appreciate. The dialogue between the two is such magic to watch, it could not have been replicated by two other characters on the show to the same effect.
It was as if they belonged on a different show, because their storyline was vastly superior to everyone else's dull drama. The show even recreated their famous phone-movie date for a Dan and Blair scene. The history of their relationship parallels the iconic film couple; the two began as enemies, became friends and eventually a couple. The toxic and emotionally abusive relationship between Chuck and Blair is just disturbing to watch. I will never understand the appeal of a romance where the woman has no self-respect.
Blair literally lets Chuck treat her as his property. Who can forget in Season 3 when Chuck sold Blair to his uncle Jack as a prostitute just to save his precious hotel? How about the time when Chuck was drunk and physically abused Blair out of anger that she was engaged to a prince? Apparently that kind of relationship is Blair's idea of an epic romance.
Even sadder is the fact that there are young female fans who buy into this idea. Chuck and Blair "Chair" weren't always this toxic.
Before they became a poster-child for a bad relationship, they were actually one of the most entertaining couples.
Of course that all changed when the writers tried to make Chuck into a romantic lead. What used to be two fun scene-stealing characters became a couple whose scenes took themselves too seriously. Their dialogue is intended to sound epic, but instead sounds like it comes from a cheesy adult romance novel. One of the many reasons that Chair delay their relationship is because Chuck wants his empire back from his father.
He wants them to be a power couple. But Chuck -- you didn't exactly build that empire. Bart came back from a fake death to take was rightly his. In the first episode of Season 6, Chuck tells Blair, "I would give up my empire for you. You could establish yourself separate from your father without his business.
Gossip Girl: 20 Things That Make No Sense About Blair And Chuck’s Relationship
Let's not forget the cringe worthy moment from the Season 5 finale when Blair pleads for Chuck back on top of the hotel she was sold as a prostitute for.
Dan and Chuck have always represented two different sides of Blair's personality. This is something Blair, Dan and Eleanor Blair's mother have all acknowledged. Chuck brings out the immature, high school Blair who loves to scheme for fun. Chuck and Blair's relationship is based on their shared interest in kinky sex and scheming. Dan brings out the mature, independent Blair who we all fell in love with in Season 1.
