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

@Kay
Don't know if you're a fan of Dair or not, but at least Chair is the only couple on Gossip Girl that can make epic scenes like this one. Their sex scenes are of many things, not just sexy. And I see they keep going up and up in votes!

If you wanted to get people to vote for Chair you probably shouldn't have chosen to include a video of the most unintentionally hilarious sex scene ever.

Looking at the poll, Chair is steadily growing! While Dair stays the same! Yeah thats how we do it. And Delena and Kurt/Blaine are steadily going down, even though Delena is my favorite couple from VD, Chair is my all time favorite and there can only be one winnerl. But I hope Delena gets second. lol. Chair all the way.

Great article and I agree! I love how the show is rebuilding them. "Let's take it slow this time, do it right"!

@A If you really think the spark is gone, I can only assume you skipped the train station scene (4x02), the fireplace scene (4x08), the sexy bedroom scene (4x09), the goodbye scene (4x22), the apology scene (5x06), and, of course, the piano sex scene. Their chemistry is just insane, always has been, always will be.

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

Blair: Fashion is the most powerful art there is. It's movement, design and architecture all in one. It shows the world who we are and who we'd like to be. Just like your scarf suggests that you'd like to sell used cars.
Dan: Vanessa gave me this scarf.
