My favourite fictional couple - Chuck and Blair!

Chuck and Blair are 100% the best relationship to be in Gossip Girl. The relationship can be so unhealthy at times but is so consumed by love and passion, you forget how truly twisted the whole situation is and soon enough you're asking yourself "where's my Chuck Bass?"

Chuck and Blair have never been the simple and normal type of couple, they like to be kept on their toes, they like to play games because it keeps things in their relationship exciting. In Season 1 of Gossip Girl, Blair is of course, dedicated to the popular and most pretty boy, Nate Archibald. It is clear to see at the beginning that Blair doesn't care for Chuck at all, however, you would always see them scheming together to keep their power at the very top. They both like to have people worshipping the ground they walk on and that's what they always did, even if it meant blackmailing and manipulating people. Neither Chuck or Blair had any kind of feelings for each other whatsoever.

The first glimpse of Chuck and Blair's romance blossoming is in the episode 'Victor, Victrola' where Blair has just broke up with Nate and needs to let loose. She finds herself at Chuck's Burlesque club, where she puts on a strip teasing show. Chuck watches her, so enticed by her movements and he hasn't looked at her this way before. This is where the famous limo scene comes up, Chuck takes Blair home in his limo and things begin to get steamy. Blair is the one, surprisingly to make the first move, leaning into kiss Chuck. This is where Blair gives her virginity to Chuck.

After losing her virginity, Blair is dedicated to getting Nate back as she knows where he heart truly lies. Chuck on the other hand, begins to grow feelings, he states that he has a fluttering feeling in his stomach, where Blair simply says "the butterflies have to be murdered". Chuck grows more and more feelings for Blair as the episodes go on and even tries to convince Nate to break up with her by creating lies and letting his jealousy take over. After taking his jealousy to the extreme by being the reason Nate punches Carter at the ball. Blair ends her and Chucks relationship once and for all, leaving him heartbroken.

Chuck finally cracks in 'A thin line between Chuck and Nate' and tips Gossip Girl with the news about him taking Blair's virginity. Nate and Chuck's friendship comes to an end and Chuck tells Blair he wants absolutely nothing to do with her. Their mutual relationship finishes there until they are brought back together to help Serena. Chuck and Blair reconcile at the Bass-Van Der Woodsen wedding where Chuck's best man speech is inspired by Blair. Their romance begins to spark back up until he leaves her at the heliport, where he told her they would fly to Tuscany together.

At the beginning of Season 2, we learn Chuck has been trying to get over Blair by sleeping with many girls in the Hamptons. Blair had gone to Europe and grabbed herself a new man, Marcus. Chuck reveals to Blair that he was afraid if they spent the whole summer together, she would see the real him and not want him any more. Blair responded that she will be his and only his, if he tells her he loves her. Chuck can not expose himself in that way, leaving Blair no choice but to stick it out with Marcus and try to move on. After troubles with Marcus, Blair goes back to Chuck who demands she tells him she loves him, or she won't get what she wants. She refuses to expose herself as well, leaving Chuck no choice but to give up and let Blair do the chasing for once. Chuck visits Blair after going through her games and manipulations, explaining the reason they won't say "I love you" is because that means they'll be closer to one another and he admits he's not ready for anything close to commitment. Chuck and Blair put their relationship on hold. Throughout the rest of season 2, their relationship is on and off. They try to find each other dates for events but end up coming together, Blair finally says that she loves Chuck when he is having a major breakdown over his dad's death, he shrugs her words off but finds his way back to her later on where he stays the night, Blair wakes up to a note revealing Chuck has fled the country and she shouldn't try to find him. Chuck eventually returns with his uncle, Jack Bass and shuns Blair's affection. After catching Chuck on the edge of a building, Blair talks him down from the ledge by saying she would care if he died and she needs him, Chuck eventually gets down after Blair's speech, falling into her arms. Chuck is given the job to become CEO of Bass industries but turns it down knowing how stupid the idea is because his father always thought of him as a failure. Nate and Blair convince Chuck to take the job but his Uncle Jack has other plans to get him caught by the board members, drunk, with prostitutes and drugs. Chuck tries to apologise to Blair about his actions, after seeing how proud Blair was of him but she never forgives him. Blair gets herself into a rebellious stage and starts dating Carter Baizen who only brings out the worst in her. Blair tries to seduce Chuck at a party but he refuses her offer as she isn't the Blair he wants right now. Blair starts her relationship back up with Blair and Chuck ends up having a 'thing' with Vanessa. Once again, Chuck and Blair come together for a scheme to help their friend Serena get out of her troubles. Blair needs to hear how Chuck feels before she can really start things up with Nate again where he only responds with, "it was just a game". Serena questions his choice of letting Blair go and Chuck tells Serena he loves Blair, but he wants her to be happy and he believes he can't make her happy. At the prom, Blair wins prom Queen with the help of Chuck voting for over 100 times, after seeing Nelly trying to sabotage the voting ballots. Blair breaks up with Nate again, seeing he is only her high school boyfriend. In the last episode of Season 2, Chuck and Blair almost get back together until he finds out Blair slept with his Uncle Jack, last New Year's Eve and she finds out he slept with Vanessa. Weeks later, he comes back from Europe and finally tell's Blair he loves her.

The start of Season 3 shows Chuck and Blair in a happy and playful relationship. The pair have created a game where they choose potential girls to victimize, Chuck seduces them and just as they're about to kiss Blair catches them. Blair worries that without games, they'll just be another boring couple. Chuck reassures her by saying they could never be boring and he wouldn't be Chuck Bass without her. They then start role-playing. 

Throughout Season 3, Blair starts her new college life and Chuck is the new founded owner of the famous Empire Hotel. A place all Gossip Girls fans would love to stay. Chuck is so busy with his new purchase, he hasn't had enough time with Blair and hasn't seen how insecure she's feeling with not being accepted by the other students at NYU. He also founds out she's been getting herself back into the Queen B drama at Constance, so he makes it a mission with the help of Jenny to get Blair to come back down to reality and Jenny can go back to being the Queen of Constance. Again they have their manipulating games on one another, spiralling them downwards and losing their trust for each other. Blair tries to keep Chuck calm as it approaches the first anniversary of his father's death and he has to reminisce on the whole thing when Serena ends up in hospital. Chuck has hallucinations of his dad telling him how weak he is for giving Blair his heart, this makes him distance himself away from Blair. Blair eventually convinces him to visit his father's grave where he bumps into someone that is possibly his mother. However after many days of bonding and betrayal, she reveals to Chuck that she is not his mother. After Elizabeth and Jack managed to get Chuck to hand over his hotel, Jack offers him his hotel back under one condition, a night with Blair. Jack tells Blair that Chuck can have his hotel back if she spends one night with him, Blair sees that Chuck is crushed so she has no other choice but to go through with the night. Jack reveals to Blair that Chuck and him had it planned all along and Chuck wanted Blair to feel compassion and run to Jack. Blair is completely devastated and broken hearing that Chuck traded her for the hotel. Although Blair said she would stand by him on the worst thing he could ever do, she didn't know the worst thing he could ever do would be to her. Blair slaps Chuck in the face and leaves him after telling him "Goodbye, Chuck".

Chuck does everything in his power to get Blair back, including throwing a traditional wedding for Dorota and Vanya. Dorota asks Chuck and Blair to be the happy couple to escort them for good luck and Blair accepts because she's so embarrassed and doesn't want anyone to know about the trade. However she does tell Nate and he gets into a fight with Chuck. Blair can't deal with faking her happiness and breaks down telling Dorota that Chuck and her aren't happy. Chuck begs Blair to not give and to see this through to the end, Blair finalizes everything by saying "this is the end". Chuck goes back to his ways of seducing any woman he comes across to get over how devastated he truly is. 

A scheme eventually brings them back together and Chuck tells her that saying he loved her was the most dangerous thing he's ever done. He tells her that the next day, he will be standing at the top of the Empire State building, if she doesn't arrive by 7:01, he will close his heart to her forever. Blair tries to keep herself as far away from the Empire State building as possible but after seeing so many signals telling her to go, she decides to meet him. Dorota's water breaks at the very same time, leaving Blair to leave her choice to see Chuck behind for the time being. By the time she makes it to the Empire State building, Chuck has left and she finds peonies in the trash. Chuck goes back to the hotel, thinking Blair doesn't love him any more and ends up sleeping with Jenny to take away the pain of being rejected. Blair arrives at the hotel with the peonies in her hands and tells Chuck she was late because Dorota had her baby, she tells him she followed her heart because she loves him and they hug but Chuck still has the Jenny situation to deal with. Chuck apologises to Blair about everything and he wants to spend the rest of his life making it up to her, he's just about to propose when Dan comes through the lobby and punches Chuck in the face. At that moment, Blair realises Chuck had slept with Jenny and she banishes Jenny from New York permanently. Blaire and Chuck are left alone, allowing Chuck to apologise once again but Blaire tells him to never say anything to her ever again and leaves. Chuck ends up in Prague drunk and upset, he is assaulted by thieves when they try to steal the engagement ring from him, he fights for the ring but ends up getting shot in the middle of it.  

In Season 4, Blair makes it her mission to get back to dating when Gossip Girl announces that she had a summer without any sort of romance. Blair notices that Gossip Girl hasn't posted about Chuck all summer and she ends up cracking, telling Serena that she's tried to fake being okay throughout the whole of the summer but in reality, she's not okay and she is worried she'll never be able to move on from him. Chuck is shown with a new woman named Eva who nursed him back to health after finding him shot. Chuck decides to live with a new identity (Henrey Prince) and stays in Paris. Blair and Chuck do cross paths through traffic but she insists the driver to keep moving. Blair starts up a new romance with a prince, Louis. Serena goes to see Chuck and tries to convince him to not give up his old life, he will lose everything if he does. Chuck tells Serena he's already lost everything (Blair) and Serena knows the only person who can stop him from leaving is Blair, Serena goes to convince Blair to save Chuck. Blair is reluctant to help at first as she has her priorities with Louis. Blair stops by Harry Winston and a ring catches her eye and she is informed that it has already been purchased by a 'Mr Chuck Bass'. Blair is taken aback after realising Chuck was going to propose to her but it somehow convinces her to go and see him. She finds him at the Paris train station and tells him changing his name won't change everything he is, he tells her he wants to become a better man after destroying the only thing he ever loved and that her world would be better without him. Blair tells him, although she doesn't love him anymore, it wouldn't be her world if he wasn't in it. Chuck is convinced and reveals his true identity to Eva and invites her to join him in Manhattan. Blair hates how happy Eva is making Chuck and does everything to find a way to break them apart. She sees Eva selling a Cartier watch that Chuck bought her, only to find out she was helping a man who was about to lose his home. Blair decides to dig deeper into Eva's past where she finds out that Eva was a prostitute. Chuck confronts Eva before Blair can say anything about it and Chuck forgives her just like Eva forgave him for his past. On the night where Chuck announces which charity he will be donating too, Blair sees that her attempt of breaking them over the prostitution scandal has failed and turns to stealing Chuck's passport and placing it into Eva's luggage so it looks like Eva knew who Chuck was from the first day he met her. Chuck ends up devastated once again and tells Eva to get out, however, Chuck soon finds out this was all a set up but by the time he goes to find Eva and apologise, it's too late and she's already decided herself that she wants to leave. Blair still denies her feelings towards Chuck, so he only assumes that she just wants to ruin his chances of happiness out of hatred, Blair also denies that but Chuck has had enough and declares war. Chuck is determined to take everything away from Blair including bringing Jenny Humphrey back to Manhattan where Jenny tips Gossip Girl to tell everyone about her sleeping with Chuck, leaving Blair ashamed and embarrassed, before Jenny leaves she confronts the two of them by saying "you two used to be so in love, and together you were invincible, but now that you've turned against each other it's only a matter of time until your mutual destruction". Chuck and Blair agree to a truce which is made official by Nate and Serena who make them agree to a peace treaty. Dan and Eric do everything to make Chuck and Blair break their peace treaty but they only brush them off knowing they have so many enemies. However, after a few slip ups at her 20th birthday party, Chuck and Blair agree that the peace treaty just won't work because they hate each other too much, Chuck rips up the treaty then grabs Blair and they start kissing and it ends with passionate piano sex.

Chuck and Blair begin sneaking around to have a lot of sex but soon they realise they'll never be able to get over each other if they keep playing these games while they have so much history. Blair believes she should go on a cleanse to stop herself being pulled back in, Chuck believes they need immersion therapy (so much sex that they get sick of each other). Blair is almost convinced but she has to go back to scheming, after their successful take down Chuck and Blair share celebratory champagne and agree to be just friends. As Chuck leaves, they share a kiss and Chuck ends up carrying her to her room.

Chuck and Blair are both told that their relationship would be disastrous for their future careers so they decide to keep their 'friends with benefits' relationship a secret. In the heat of the moment, Chuck tells Blair he loves her and she avoids it, eventually it eats away at her and she confronts him about it at the saints and sinners party. He tells her he meant it with all his heart and she tells him she loves him too. While in a passionate kiss, they are revealed infront of everyone, leaving Blair to lose her chances at being the face of Anne Archibald's foundation.
