Chuck/Blair 2x13 Picspam  

Graphic intensive! And, of course, spoilers for 2x13!


Okay guys, I really enjoyed 2x13. As much as I love and miss S1Evil!Chuck, the new angst-filled Chuck is fun too. I think 2x13 really showed that Chuck and Blair work as more than a fabulously bitchy couple (though they should always be that too!). So to celebrate, here's a picspam of these very pretty kids angsting it up. If you're looking for hilarious commentary, go check out mojotastic's picspam/recap! Um, sorry all the other characters, you only appear here briefly (anyway, let's be honest, I could take or leave a lot of them episode to episode. XD).



Blair + "kill me now" face + lox bagel = amaaazing! Damn, I wish I could have a breakfast spread like this. The Waldorf-Roses are adorable (and I'm glad that includes Dorota and not skeevy Aaron!). I like that Eleanor pretty much says "Yeah, we're getting married because we're like in love like you and Chuck are, Blair!"



Wow, it's been a rough... day for Chuck. He's retreated to the three things he's always loved: money, the pleasures money brings him (in this case, liquor), and eviling it up. Aw, and I love that the stalker has become the stalkee. That's how you really know someone cares!




It's great to see these three being friends again (and referencing the pre-pilot friendship! <3). Seriously, Nate's motivations for not being friends with Chuck never make any sense so they should just give it up and have them be BFF. Or just promote Eric to BFF status.



Oh, Chuck. (Okay, I said that through most of the episode.)




Blair trying to keep him from drinking on an empty stomach? I'm sorry, she's not being maternal, she's being his Upper East Side wife. ;)



And she's not going to listen to Nate and give Chuck his space. Would you listen to Nate's advice on relationships? Yeah, I didn't think so.




;_;



Chuck is coping in a not-unexpected way: social destruction. Lily takes a break from saying the wrong thing to someone who's grieving his father and gives him some good advice.



Meanwhile, Blair is having a very different but more reassuring conversation with her stepparent. Cyrus, I love you! There should be more hugs in the show. People need them.


Wait, time-out!
AHAHAHA, nice work GG! Dan's FACE. And they found a garment bag that looks like a watermelon! A+



Okay, back to C & B!

Aw, how pretty is the Waldorf-Rose wedding? So sweet. Dorota's squee is adorable!



The music choices in this ep were so good. SIDENOTE: Ever since mojotastic pointed it out in her picspam, I love that Chuck Bass almost honored his father's memory with some arson. How apropos!




How much do you love that Dorota ushers Chuck to Blair's room even in the midst of a wedding? (Um, ignore the logistics of this.) And Blair's little smile! *draws hearts*




Covering each other's hands on his shoulder gets me every time.




>
I love that ending too. Chuck has more self-destructing ahead, so I really couldn't see him staying anyway. He was able to come and accept comfort from Blair which is as much as they could do right now. Good work show! The fact that I find Blair and Chuck so compelling makes me willing to forgive a lot of narrative sins. ;)

Please don't take these caps! I did spend a good amount of time capping and coloring.
And I'm making icons from them myself anyway. ;)

Comments are very much appreciated! XOXO

PICSPAM!

I love Cyrus and Blair so much; that moment between them was my favorite part of the episode, seriously.

And I agree so much about the Chuck & Nate friendship. Their scenes together were a highlight of the first season for me and I really miss their dynamic. Nate is so boring and pointless now without a friend.

YAY THANKS!

I know, I love Cyrus. Especially since I think of him as Mr. Hall/Vizzini/a Ferengi which are all very positive associations. ;) I really want Cyrus to stick around, his scenes with Blair are always sweet and awesome. But they can ditch his son. ;)

Ha, I can't even remember the latest reason Chuck and Nate aren't friends. Are we still on that thing from Yale? I miss things like "The Lost Weekend" from S1, when they would party, lose at poker and get ridiculously dressed up to go play pickup games. Let's have Nate go do that again instead whoring himself out! :D

Oh no, you haven't seen it yet? I've thoroughly revealed all the details of this ep to you! Well, everything Blair/Chuck related. ;) I hope you get to tune in soon!

ALSO, your icon! It's so true! I still can't convince myself that it isn't just a terrible nightmare. Jesse McCartney. *shudder*

PICSPAAAAAAM.
Well, all the things I wanted to say is already being said by you, so..

I miss evil!Chuck like I miss S1!Zuko. A LOT.

And yes, I love the ending. It's perfect. It leaves room for speculating- and this is exactly what I LOVE from C/B's relationship- the unexpected.

Schwartz, don't you dare ruin this with the ridiculous woobieness like in the beginning of S2!

Sidenote: Ugh. I realized just how much better the show is without skeevy Aaron.
Top: GG: [Blair] Long live the Queentopazera on December 28th, 2008 09:39 pm (UTC)
I'm glad you enjoyed it, bb! The S1!Chuck to S1!Zuko comparison is very apt. Oh, those were the days, when they were thoughtlessly creating social destruction with a single text and raaaging about not needing calming tea. I miss all that!

Schwartz, don't you dare ruin this with the ridiculous woobieness like in the beginning of S2!

Seconded! Guys while angst is good, plotting and devious mischief is better! Let's keep that in mind, shall we?

ALSO, I think Aaron is on his way out so THUMBS UP. :)

Lovely picspam, you chose great shots.

I love Mr Hall Cyrus as well, in fact I haven't come across anyone who doesn't. Although Aaron can go photograph girls on Ibiza or something, ugh.

I also agree with you on the writer's ability to make Chuck/Blair believable even if a lot of the rest makes no sense sometimes.
Top: GG: [Chuck] Surrounded by IDIOTStopazera on December 28th, 2008 10:08 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I've seen nothing but Cyrus love too. And many people thinking of him as Mr. Hall Cyrus too. I hope they get him to stick around.

Sometimes I think they must have one writer they field most of the Chuck/Blair stuff to while the other writers go smoke up. Oh, GG! XD

Thanks for the comment! <3

loved this pic-spam :) May fave part of that eppy was when Blair was hugging Chuck in her room. I teared up on that part because it was so cute and the look on Chuck's face was so sad.

Thank you! That was definitely my reaction to the bedroom scene too. *sniffs* How are they so amazing? <3

YES. Omg, they have to get married eventually.

loved this episode so much.

Annnd your icon is amazing, btw. Thanks for the comment! <3

This is gorgeous. I love the quotes from the show. You picked the best parts!

Thank you! I usually think the Blair and/or Chuck scenes are the best parts anyway but they particularly owned this episode!

Hah, me too! I've watched that scene many more times than I should probably admit to. ;)

Thanks for commenting!

*sigh* I still can't get over this episode. I love those two so much. And thank you for not putting any Serena/Aaron parts in it or much of Rufus and Lily who both pissed me off. Cyrus is seriously the best UES parent left. Dorota is forever amazing. And C/B will go back to being evil and formidable and unstoppable one day. I can't wait for new eps!

Yeah, me too. It doesn't matter that everyone's been talking about it for weeks already. I love it. <3

And thank you for not putting any Serena/Aaron parts in it or much of Rufus and Lily who both pissed me off.
Ha, you're welcome! Ugh, I've already blocked the Aaron/Serena from my mind. Sadly, I enjoyed Rufus and Lily in the first season but that seems like so long ago. Their whole plotline now? Laaame.

And C/B will go back to being evil and formidable and unstoppable one day.
*fingers-crossed* Don't get me wrong, I love all the angst, but I'm hoping we can get back to that soon! I don't want them too bogged down in drama.

Thanks for the comment! :)

I completely meant for this to just be a Chuck/Blair picspam... but I could not resist that one!

I know, right? I legitimately thought that was going to be Nate's remark.

Aw, I can't help reliving that moment through picspams and icons and recaps too. So lovely!
