Anonymous said: What is your favorite nonsexual CB scene in each season?
This is a great question! We are firm believers that Chuck and Blair are far more than just sex and we love talking about their “platonic” moments! :-)
For Season One, we are forever in love with 1.07. Hold up—we know how to read and we know you asked for nonsexual scenes. As much as we ADORE the limo scene, we’re actually talking about Chuck and Blair’s interaction at Victrola earlier in the episode, when Chuck tells Blair she is his second toughest critic and Blair tells Chuck that he made her proud. We love this because it shows how close they were even before they slept together/romance was even an option. This scene was a great example of Chuck and Blair as friends…you know, friends with insane sexual chemistry.
In Season Two, we loved watching Chuck and Blair team up to take down Gabriel and Poppy in 2.23. Again, they’re attempting to be friends/work together to help Serena, but really it was all about staying connected to each other (which both Serena and Nate knew).
The hospital scene in 3.12 is not only our favorite scene from Season Three, but it makes our top five favorite scenes of all time. It’s just beautiful. Chuck and Blair are so sweet to each other in that scene and it truly encompasses how they will always be there for one another no matter what. We also love Blair’s line, “You carry people. You carry me.”
As for Season Four, we don’t think we can choose just one. It’s a toss up between 4.02 and 4.22. We loved 4.02 because of the gorgeous imagery and foreshadowing in the Paris scene. The bar mitzvah scene in 4.22 was also full of foreshadowing and we loved seeing Chuck and Blair happy and dancing.
The apology scene in 5.06 is our favorite from Season Five. Everything about that scene was perfect. Chuck’s apology, Blair’s reaction, the music, the looks on their faces—so moving.
