Can't believe they're all basically my age here. I feel way too little to look their age.
I laughed when Blair and Carter happened and Chuck and Vaness happened on the show. You could see from their little smiles that they thought the charade of going against Chair for reality couples was hilarious. Like they had to act like they were trying to make Chuck or Blair jealous depending on the situation when really they're just into each other.
I don't know if you guys have noticed, but whenever the cast are in a laidback, casual photo shoot, Ed, Chase, Leighton, Taylor and Jessica just end up next to each other, and Penn and Blake are off on one section or side together. Its clear that Blake and Penn are tight besties/ex's/lovers. The others have morphed into a friendship gang who are always seen hanging out at events together.
Blake Lively's legs are out of control. There's something wrong with that level of perfection. It needs to be violated.
You can tell that besides Taylor, Blake and Ed are the youngest and most immature from this photo
I think that the way Bart told Chuck he was taking over was completely fucked up and mean. Its the biggest slap in the face to someone who has ruined everything else in his life in order to keep what he had left of his father's memory in tact. He's spent the last years believing that his father left him the company because he finally had shown him that he believed in him. He's had to deal with Elizabeth Fishers, Jack Bass's and Russell Thorpes. Then, throughout Season 5, he tried so hard to grow up and finally be the man that people like Blair always wanted him to be. His mistakes in Season 5 could be attributed to Blair and Dan, but that would be boyish and immature of him. He could have blamed nearly sending himself bankrupt on Blair, but he has realised that it's immature because it was his own decision. He's trying to prevent himself from involving Blair in the mistakes he makes. He's trying to prove to his Dad and simultaneously himself that he can be that man. He's doing his best to keep Blair away from how he's handling the business. Blair and Chuck have grown from simply avoiding each other when they focus on their future to actually lending a small hand when they need it and working as a team. They work together during the positive stuff, but this time I think Chuck is going to try not to drag Blair into the negative moments and be all desperate and dark. He didn't let Blair sink into a desperate moment when she tried to drunkenly have a one night stand with him in the other episode. He's not going to let himself do that too. That's what Chuck is trying to do this season. It's actually a gallant thing to do, even if it does have some problems to it. I think part of his journey this season might be to realise that he should let go of that anger he has for his father. The same way Blair might let go of her immature habits that cause her to ruin her career and future.
What Bart said, I will admit, made sense. He was right about his mistakes regarding Blair and how she is involved in his company and someone had to point them out. But he had no right to cut Chuck completely out of the company, and also had no right to say that he hadn't grown up at all and didn't have what it takes to be a real Bass man. WTF is a real Bass man? Bart Bass is a real man? A guy that's life is based on lies and his business? Bart Bass has no clue when it comes to fatherly advice or being a father in general.
Chuck's expression in the last gif of this set is what made this scene one of my favourites
"You read me like tea leaves Chuck Bass"
