Television Series[edit | edit source]
In Pilot, Chuck and Blair appear to have an acquaintance-like friendship. Throughout the episode, Chuck talks openly to Nate about how he should seal the deal with Blair. It is obvious that at this point in time, neither Blair nor Chuck have any romantic feelings toward each other. At the end of the episode, the two share a comrade-like moment. Shortly after, in The Wild Brunch, Chuck's father Bart Bass hosts his annual brunch for his foundation and Blair and Chuck sit together; along with Nate, Isabel Coates, and Kati Farkas. They appear to be having a friendly, good time before Serena and Dan arrive. The two showing up at the brunch angers Chuck and Blair, due to the fact that Serena slept with Nate and the fact that Dan punched Chuck at the Kiss on the Lips Party. Blair vents to Chuck, who offers to help by giving her the key to his suite to finally have sex with Nate. Later, they both take part in informing Dan about Serena's indiscretions with Nate. In Poison Ivy, the junior class of Constance Billard/St. Jude's throws a mixer for representatives of Ivy League colleges. After her fight with Serena turns physical, Blair calls Chuck for help in getting revenge. She explains that she needs answers on why she returned to New York, and Chuck is willing to help her get them. He follows Serena and sees her entering The Ostroff Center, a rehab facility where, unknown to Chuck and Blair, her brother Eric van der Woodsen is staying. Chuck takes photos and shows them to Blair, who is pleased with what he found. She uses the information to out Serena as a drug addict during the mixer, but later learns it was Eric who was there.In Victor Victrola, Chuck invites Blair to come see the club he's trying to convince Bart to buy, and she's impressed with the place. However, Bart doesn't like the place and shames Chuck for looking for more ways to be around strippers and parties. Meanwhile, Blair learns from Jenny Humphrey that Nate mistook her for Serena and confessed that he still has feelings for her. As a result, she breaks up with him and heads to the club, Victrola, to escape her troubles with Chuck. While there, Chuck dares her to get onstage and she surprises him by going up and dancing. At the end of the night, he takes Blair home in his limo and she ends up losing her virginity to him in the backseat. On her seventeenth birthday, Blair realizes how much she misses Nate and wants him back. To remind herself of this, she disinvites Chuck from her birthday party before going to the jewelry store to pick out gifts for others to pick up. Meanwhile, Nate's mother Anne Archibald tries to convince him to get back together with Blair to secure Eleanor's support in their recent legal battles regarding Howard Archibald's embezzlement. Feeling pressured, Nate confesses what his mother wants him to do to Chuck, who uses that information to ruin Blair's interest in winning him back. Blair is unconvinced, and promises Chuck that Nate will call her at midnight the same he does every year on her birthday. Unfortunately, he doesn't call and Blair instead gets a Gossip Girl blast containing a picture of Nate and a blonde, who is unnamed but Jenny. She excuses herself from her party crying, and says her birthday wish didn't come true. Chuck follows her, and gives her the diamond necklace she put on hold earlier that day. The two begin to kiss, and Serena sees them together (Seventeen Candles). Cotillion season arrives, and it's revealed that Chuck and Blair still hook up from time to time. However, Blair is planning to attend The Debutante Ball with Prince Henry and Chuck will be escorting someone else. Meanwhile, Nate is noticing Blair's newfound happiness and realizes he misses her. He shows up to her penthouse after dance rehearsal one evening and asks her to go to the ball with him instead. She agrees while a jealous Chuck listens from upstairs. He tries to get Nate to lose interest in Blair by dropping hints that she's interested in his enemy Carter Baizen. On the night of the ball, Chuck goes to see Blair but she orders him to leave her and Nate alone for the night; and she accidentally reveals that Carter is on his way over to retrieve a jacket he left during tea. Chuck waits around for him, and takes a picture of him leaving the building to show Nate to prove he's dating Blair. Nate falls for it, and punches Carter at the ball, getting himself kicked out over it. Later while dancing, Blair realizes Chuck set Carter up to make Nate jealous and was ultimately responsible for the scene. She ends their affair, and goes to find Nate. Afterwards, he sees them enter a room together kissing and broken hearted, he leaves the city (Hi, Society). Before Christmas, Blair, newly reunited with Nate, tries unsuccessfully to contact Chuck to ask him to keep their affair private. On Christmas morning, he texts her a photo of himself with Nate, asking her who he would want to tell (Roman Holiday). When Chuck returns, he continues to remain jealous of Blair and Chuck, and tells her not to do anything with Nate or he'll reveal what they did. As a result, Blair distances herself from Nate, despite his attempts to bring them closer together.

At the wedding, Chuck dedicates his speech to Blair and announces he intends to fight for her. Afterwards, they dance together and agree to take their relationship slow.

However, Chuck is beginning to have doubts about his ability to commit and becoming fearful of growing up, backs out of going on the trip to sleep with Bart and Lily's apartment decorator. His choice leaves Blair waiting for him on the helipad, before choosing to fly to Tuscany without him.
In the season premiere, Summer Kind of Wonderful, it's revealed that Chuck never made it to Europe and left Blair hanging all summer. He instead went to the Hamptons with Serena, Eric, and CeCe Rhodes, sleeping with a different girl every night to get over Blair. When she returns, she brings along her new boyfriend Marcus Beaton, much to Chuck's dismay. He becomes suspicious of Marcus, especially after hearing him say things about his life that doesn't match with what he told Blair. During the annual Vitamin Water White Party, Marcus reveals to Blair that he is a British Lord that lied about his identity to make sure she wasn't using him. At the end of the party, Chuck approaches Blair while she is waiting for Marcus and asks her not to leave with him. She asks him to admit he loves her and she'll leave Marcus to be with him, but he is unable to do so. Hurt, Blair leaves with Marcus. After returning to Manhattan, Blair throws a spontaneous back to school party to impress Marcus' step-mother, Duchess Catherine Beaton.

Soon after, Chuck begins to have intimacy problems, which Serena diagnoses with having to do with his inability to move on from Blair. At a party she's throwing, he asks her to sleep with him but she refuses. Later during the party, the whole city experiences a blackout and Chuck feigns as Marcus to get Blair to kiss him and hopefully have sex with him. She falls for it, and Marcus walks in on them kissing. At first Blair says she didn't know it was Chuck, but later admits she knew it was him. However, Marcus forgives her and Chuck continues to experience intimacy problems with other women (The Dark Night). Meanwhile, Vanessa has taken an interest in Nate, which she loses when she learns he's sleeping with Catherine for money. She soon discovers that Catherine is also sleeping with Marcus, and she tells Blair hoping to get Nate out of the arrangement. As a result, Blair ends things with Marcus (The Ex-Files). Later, Vanessa uses the pictures she took of Marcus and Catherine to blackmail Blair into helping her save an old Brooklyn bar. Angry at being played, she entices Chuck into seducing Vanessa for humiliation, promising to sleep with him if he succeeds. He agrees, but finds he likes the bar and plans to actually save it. When Blair realizes he is acting friendly with Vanessa and planning to help her, she ends the game and announces to him that he won after telling Vanessa everything. When he comes to collect his prize, a night with her, he asks her to say she loves him. She refuses, saying she will never say those words to him and he replies that it's now her turn to chase him (Chuck In Real Life). After this incident, Blair becomes obsessed with getting Chuck to sleep with her. Serena suggests she ask Dan for help, and he advises that she become unavoidable to Chuck to make sure she's in his head. Following his advice, she asks him out for drinks but he catches on to her desperation pretty quick and leaves when she spills her drink on his pants. After she explains what happened to Dan, he suggests she catch him at home. She goes to the VDW's and succeeds in getting him to kiss her, but their foreplay is interrupted when a text from Serena reveals her plans. In a last ditch attempt, Blair decides to just tell him how she feels at Rufus Humphrey's art gallery opening. Before she goes through with it, Dan finds out what she and Chuck did to Vanessa so he instills doubt in her telling him. As a result, she fails in doing so and Chuck, annoyed with her games, ends their relationship for good. However, Dan tells Chuck that he ruined Blair's revelation and was the result of the failure. Later that night, Chuck goes to see Blair and tells her that despite their mutual attraction to each other, they aren't ready for a relationship. They agree that they love the game too much to stop, and they decide to put their relationship on hold (Pret-a-Poor-J). While babysitting a prominent Yale donor's daughter named Emma, Blair and Chuck end up on a wild goose chase to find her after she runs away, determined to lose her virginity. They eventually find her at a hotel with a boy from her school nicknamed "The Devirginator", but Chuck has Gossip Girl send out a fake blast about Emma's enemy Muffy losing hers first. Disappointed, she goes home with Blair, who recognizes parts of herself in Emma. She asks Blair if she lost her virginity to someone she loves, and Blair says yes (There Might be Blood). Before the annual Snowflake Ball, Chuck and Blair make a bet to bring dates for the other to prove how well they know each other. If Blair likes her date, she gets Chuck's limo for a month and if Chuck likes his date, he gets Dorota. Blair enlists Dorota to help her find him a date, and Dorota notices the girl that is being described is exactly like Blair. At the ball, Chuck and Blair both show up with the dates and discover they brought similar versions of themselves. When they go off the argue, their dates hook up, leading Blair to express frustration that even their dopplegangers can work out their issues but they can't. Chuck tells her that even though they can't be them, he doesn't want to lose what they have. The two dance before Chuck receives the news that Bart died in a car crash (It's a Wonderful Lie). After learning his father has died, Chuck goes into hiding at The Palace Hotel from everyone, including Blair. At the funeral, Blair works to make sure Chuck behaves and appears sober, despite finding him completely wasted beforehand. During the reception, Nate tells her how she's being sweet and maternal toward him, but she denies it. When he leaves, Blair chases him down and finally tells him that she will stand by him through anything because she loves him. Overwhelmed by grief and alcohol, Chuck blows her off and leaves anyway, leaving Blair crying on the street. The next night, Eleanor Waldorf and Cyrus Rose get married at the Waldorf's, and Chuck arrives during to go to Blair's room. Dorota tells her, and Blair heads up to find Chuck sitting and crying on her bed. She hugs him, and they spend the night cuddling together. When Blair wakes up in the middle of the night, she finds a note from Chuck saying she deserves much better and not to come looking for him (O Brother, Where Bart Thou?). Chuck eventually returns to Manhattan with his uncle Jack Bass. When Blair hears he's back, she goes to see him but leaves quickly once she sees his disheveled state. However, she still tries to support him; including acting as his representative at a meeting with Headmistress Queller after she catches him smoking hash at school. He throws a party at Victrola, and ends up on the roof, drunk. Blair finds him up there and is able to talk him down, promising that she doesn't want him going anywhere and cares about him. When she and Jack bring him home, she tells Jack not to tell Chuck what they did on New Year's Eve (In the Realm of the Basses). When Bart's will is read, Blair and Nate go along for support. Afterwards, they all learn that Chuck was left the majority shares of Bass Industries, much to Jack's dismay. At first, Chuck decides he doesn't want it but after reading a letter from Bart, he decides to take a shot at it. Jealous at not getting the company, Jack convinces Blair to help him throw a surprise brunch for Chuck to show their support. She initially agrees and plans a huge party at The Palace. However, Jack arranges for Chuck to be caught by the board of Bass Industries while he's high on cocaine and seducing prostitutes upstairs. As a result, they vote to take him away from the company and an angry Chuck takes it out on Blair; ordering her to stop pretending to be his wife. After he calms down, he goes to see her at her penthouse and brings her flowers as an apology. She doesn't accept it, and tells him she's done (Gone with the Will). Soon after, Blair is officially rejected from her dream school, Yale University, so she goes in search of a wilder lifestyle: which includes Chuck's enemy, Carter Baizen. During a party thrown by Nate's family, Chuck and Serena attempt to find Blair to change her back to who she was before. When Chuck finally corners her, she refuses to change back to who she was and tries to proposition him into having sex with her. He refuses, claiming it isn't the Blair he wants, so she leaves him. Later that day, Nate sits down with her and they have a deep talk about not fighting against who you are. That night, Chuck goes to the Waldorf's to talk to her, but finds Nate's jacket and realizes he's upstairs with Blair (The Grandfather). They become closer again, which makes Chuck jealous. He tries to tell Blair that she never had any sparks with Nate, and reminds her that there's a reason he won't break up with Vanessa. Trying to prove Chuck wrong, she attempts to get Nate to break up with Vanessa to be with her; which he eventually does. However, a still jealous Chuck finds Vanessa after the break up and tells her that Nate left her for Blair. Angry, they try to come up with a way to get back at them. After seeing them together at Jenny's Sweet Sixteen party, they kiss. Both Blair and Nate see, but it doesn't bother them too much as they get back together officially the next day while Chuck has sex with Vanessa (Remains of the J). Meanwhile, Serena has begun dating Gabriel Edwards, a former boyfriend of her friend Poppy Lifton. However, Blair is suspicious of him and becomes even more so when Serena tells her that Gabriel has a tendency to disappear at times, isn't easy to make plans with, and that he supposedly met Serena while she was impaired with Georgina at a restaurant Blair closed down herself to use for a scheme. On one occasion, she waits outside Serena's building to see where he'll disappear to and Chuck sees her spying together. They see him meet up and kiss Poppy, and together they decide to expose him. When Nate finds out they were together, he buys an apartment to live in with Blair while they go to different schools. He also tells Chuck to stay away from Blair unless he's going to tell her how he feels because he wants her for himself. During a gathering at the VDW's, Chuck tracks down Georgina Sparks, the only one who would know what really happened the night Gabriel met Serena. When Nate finds out Chuck wants Blair to go with him to talk to Georgina, he asks Blair to stay with them in their new apartment but she chooses to go with Chuck. However, after the two fall asleep together all night in his limo waiting for visiting hours, she realizes he only brought her to keep her away from Nate. As a result, she takes his limo when he goes to find Georgina to go and see Nate (Southern Gentlemen Prefer Blondes). On his way back into the city, Chuck learns that Serena has found out that Gabriel is indeed lying to her about meeting her and she doesn't know what else he's lying about. Together with Blair and Nate, they corner Gabriel into confessing that Poppy is pulling all the strings and is taking money from their faux fundraiser for herself. They set up Georgina to meet with Poppy to catch her in the middle of conning but and while this is being carried out, Blair asks Chuck if what they have is real or if he's just playing a game with her. Fearful of not being able to make her happy, Chuck lies that he's just messing with her and Blair leaves crying (The Wrath of Con). The next day, Nate finds out that he is unable to get a limo for prom, that he can't get a corsage, his hotel plans were ruined, and Blair's dress was destroyed at the dry cleaners. He asks Chuck if he had anything to do with the sabotage, but he denies it. Meanwhile, Blair receives her dream dress from Paris to wear, and Chuck gives Serena the key to the penthouse at The Plaza Hotel to give to Blair: both things Blair planned out in her prom scrapbook as a child. At prom, Penelope, Hazel, Isabel, and Nelly plot to humiliate Blair by rigging the prom queen election to make Nelly win but are shocked when Blair is announced the winner. Privately, Chuck reveals that he voted for Blair about 150 times and removed all the ballots for Nelly from the box so she could have the prom of her dreams. At the end of the night, Blair and Nate break up due to feeling like they've outgrown their relationship (Valley Girls). In the season finale The Goodbye Gossip Girl, Serena tries to encourage Blair to tell Chuck how she feels, but Blair is unable to; especially after Gossip Girl labels her as weak. At Nate's graduation party that night, they end up in a room alone together and are about to admit their feelings when a Gossip Girl blast reveals that Chuck slept with Vanessa and Blair slept with Jack on New Year's. As a result, Chuck loses any interest in being with Blair, even though she tells him she loves him. A week later, Blair tells Serena that she is planning to have a quiet summer and she knows that Chuck has been in Europe. Later that day, Blair is walking home when she sees Chuck waiting for her on the street. He explains that while he was in Europe he couldn't get her out of his head and brought her her favorite things to make things right. Finally, he admits that he loves her too and they kiss; entering into a relationship.

On Halloween, Chuck takes Blair's suggestion to open his hotel club but tells Serena, who is newly employed with a publicist, to not let her anywhere near the plans. Blair, who is with Serena when Chuck makes the request over the phone, is hurt and calls Jack to expedite Chuck's liquor license as a way to help. However, when Chuck finds out what she did, he bans her from the opening for betraying him.

When they're there, Chuck gets out of the limo to bring flowers to the grave but finds a woman crying over the headstone but she runs off before Chuck can say anything to her. When she's gone, Chuck finds half a locket lying on the ground with a photo of Bart inside (The Debarted). Afterwards, he tells Blair he has no interest in the locket or who it belongs to but she later finds out that despite this, he has been looking into it. At the same time, he promises to introduce her to a supposed member of La Table Élitaire named Henri Duris but continually cancels on her to track down the woman, who is named Elizabeth Fisher. After looking through all the evidence, he finally realizes that she is his mother and Blair goes with him to confront her. They do, and she denies being his mother.

Later, Jack runs into Blair and says that his price for the hotel is a night with her but Chuck never considered it. However, after Jack sends her a dress saying she has one last chance to save Chuck and seeing how crushed Chuck is from losing his hotel, she goes to Jack willingly; but brings a contract to sign to make sure Chuck never finds out and that he holds up his end of the deal. Instead of doing anything with her, he tells her how everything was set up by Chuck because he knowingly sold her out for his hotel by preying on her compassion and need to help. She goes home to find Chuck in the lobby of her building and they fight over what just happened. He tells her that even if he set her up, no one forced her to go see Jack and she slaps him before going upstairs alone. Afterwards, in The Unblairable Lightness of Being, Chuck finds out that Blair's maid, Dorota Kishlovsky is in a bind and needs to get married to her fiancée, Vanya, before her parents arrive and find her unmarried and pregnant. After being encouraged by Serena to do a grand gesture for Blair to get her to forgive him, he decides to throw them a traditional Polish wedding. As a thank you, Dorota asks Blair and Chuck to be the Happy Couple that escorts them into the chapel for good luck and Blair can't say no. Meanwhile, she hasn't told anyone except Nate what Chuck did to her, so she plays along like everything is okay but continually tells Chuck that she can't forgive him. At the wedding, Blair tells Chuck that she'll stay with him only because they're both sick twisted people who are fortunate to have found their match in each other. Before the wedding begins, Blair breaks down in front of Dorota and all the guests, admitting she and Chuck aren't happy and can't be the Happy Couple because they would only bring bad luck. After sitting down and talking with Dorota for a while, the wedding goes through perfectly and Chuck begs Blair to stay with him because they have to see their relationship through to the end.

However, she eventually agrees to help when she's approached by Dan and Nate, who are looking to acquit Rufus from accusations that he cheated on Lily. Together, they find that William was prescribing the fake medicine to keep her sick and coming for treatment so she would fall in love with him again. They successfully expose everything, and Chuck proposes a deal to Blair: that the next day, he'll be waiting for her on top of The Empire State Building and if she doesn't show by 7:01 PM, he is closing his heart to her forever. Blair informs him that she will not be there and goes home with Cameron (Ex-Husbands and Wives). In the season finale, Last Tango, Then Paris, Blair tries to distract herself from The Empire State Building but after talking to Dan and continually catching sight of the building, she decides to go. But before she can, Dorota goes into labor and Blair escorts her to the hospital.

Serena is able to find Chuck, and begs him not to leave his life behind. He does so anyway, to pursue a future with Eva far away from New York. On the way to the ball, Blair stops at Harry Winston, where she runs into Serena and an investigator from Interpol. He explains that Chuck was shot while being robbed, and that things went so far because he was trying to protect an engagement ring that was purchased there. Realizing he was going to propose to her, Blair tracks down Chuck before he leaves Paris and announces that while she doesn't love him anymore, she can't have a life without him.

Knowing it might have cost more than anything he ever gave her, she heads to Cartier to see what she can find out. While there, she sees Eva selling the watch back to the store for cash. She takes a video and goes to see Chuck, where she shows him. He asks Eva about it, but she explains that the hotel's valet, Ivan, has a struggling family that is about to lose their family farm and she needed to help. Chuck forgives Eva, and asks her to choose a charity to donate five million dollars to. Blair goes along with her to try and get any incriminating information she can about her, and texts Serena to look into everything she learns. Along with Dan, Serena learns that Eva used to be a prostitute back in Prague. They tell Blair, who debates how to tell Chuck. Meanwhile, Dan lets it slip to Nate; who tells Chuck. He pretends he already knew, but later confronts Eva in private about it. At his gala later that night, Blair attempts to tell him but he tells her he doesn't care. At the same time, Lily has received Chuck's passport, cell phone, and wallet from the Paris police and given them to Ivan to give to Chuck. When Chuck announces that he's creating a new charity called The Eva Coupeau Foundation, Blair takes the items from Ivan to place in Eva's suitcase. She then tells Chuck that she found them in Eva's suitcase, and he goes down to investigate, where he indeed finds them; and thinks she knew who he was from the very beginning. Eva follows shortly after, and Chuck breaks up with her and tells her to leave New York. Devastated, he goes downstairs to have a drink, but learns from Lily that she just received his belongings and given them to Ivan. Realizing Blair set him up, he runs upstairs to catch Eva and apologize, but she leaves anyway. Afterwards, he goes to see Blair and declares all out war between the two of them.

However, it fails and Blair realizes he's serious about ruining her life (Goodbye, Columbia). Soon after, Jenny returns to New York to interview with Tim Gunn about possibly getting a recommendation to Parsons. Angry that she defied her orders to stay away, Blair orders her to leave; but eventually gives her a day pass, so long as she doesn't go anywhere but her interview and leaves right after. When Chuck learns Jenny is in town, he swipes her paperwork from the VDW's so she's forced to go to The Empire to retrieve them; knowing it will upset Blair. She does so, and in retaliation, Blair ruins her sample dresses and her chances with Tim Gunn. At a party that night, Jenny sends a tip to Gossip Girl about how she slept with Chuck, humiliating both Chuck and Blair. That night, they call a truce and end their war (Easy J). To ensure peace, Serena and Nate set them up to sign a peace treaty. They do so, and Blair invites Chuck to her birthday party that night. Meanwhile, Dan is sick of Blair and Chuck treating Jenny terribly and along with Eric, plots a way to bring them down together. Their first attempt, baiting Chuck with the possibility of Blair sleeping with Jack again, fails. However, he learns about their treaty from Nate and steals it before it can go into Chuck's safe. He goes through it with Eric and they find the perfect way to bring them down. At Blair's party, music artist Robyn and a professional roaster show up and broadcast a video of a drunken Blair singing backstage at a concert. Humiliated, Blair blames Chuck because he was the only one who knew about it. He denies doing anything, and Dan steps forward as the culprit. Later that night, they agree that their treat won't ever work and that they hate each other. After proclaiming their hate, they have sex (War at the Roses). For a while after, Chuck and Blair continue to hook up but keep it a secret.

However, neither plan works out and they continue to hookup (Juliet Doesn't Live Here Anymore). Meanwhile, they learn that their future endeavors could be put at risk if they were really together again, so they agree to keep it a secret.

Due to this exhibition, Blair loses any chance she had at taking over Anne Archibald's foundation, Girls, Inc. However, Chuck learns that things at the hotel are on the upswing and his publicist, KC, offers Blair multiple opportunities to be showcased as Chuck's girlfriend. Despite this, Blair tells Chuck that she needs to be successful in her own right before they can be together again and they promise to wait and see if they're truly meant to be together (The Witches of Bushwick). After Serena is hospitalized in Gaslit and they spend Thanksgiving together in the hospital, Blair admits to Chuck that she is now questioning their need to succeed on their own. Chuck tells her that he can't be her friend, even though he wishes he could.

Soon after, old Bass enemy Russell Thorpe and his daughter Raina Thorpe arrive back in town.

Once he learns that Russell is going to buy Bass Industries and dismantle it for parts, he works to make sure Raina falls in love with him. After he manipulates Raina into missing her business meeting about buying Bass Industries, he strikes out with her and Blair calls her to tell her that Chuck deserves a second chance because he is a good guy (Panic Roommate). On Valentine's Day in It-Girl Happened One Night, Chuck plans a lavish event to prove to Russell that Bass Ind. has equitable value and to woo Raina. At the same time, Blair, who is now working at W Magazine, needs to follow a socialite for a profile. She asks Raina, who originally agrees but backs out. However, Blair attends the event anyway and tells Serena that Chuck is only interested in Raina because he needs to save his company so seeing them together doesn't bother her. While there, she stumbles upon a private room decorated romantically that Chuck set up for Raina. She runs into Dan, and end up hearing a heated fight between Chuck and Raina; in which he tells her that she is sacred to him. Crushed, Blair realizes that he has real feelings for Raina.

After Raina begins dating Nate, Chuck realizes he really does want to be with Blair, but finds out she kissed Dan. When he confronts her, she admits that while it was life changing, it only was because it made her realize she wanted to be with him. She also tells him that even though she knows she's ready for them to be together and build a future, she knows he isn't ready yet; putting their relationship on hold once again (The Kids Stay in the Picture). Right after, Louis comes to Manhattan looking for Blair. They plan to attend a ball together to earn Louis' mother Sophie Grimaldi's approval so they can get engaged, but Chuck crashes it to win Blair back.

After finding this out, Louis decides to follow Blair and sees her with Chuck, warning him that Jack is back in town. At an engagement party thrown by Eleanor and Cyrus, Louis tells Blair to either meet him at Constance Billard's annual alumni gala prepared to share every part of herself, or not come and end it with him (Shattered Bass). Before she can go to Constance in the finale The Wrong Goodbye, Blair is lured to Chuck's new hotel site by Russell; to be burned alive in the building the same way his late wife was. However, Blair is able to reach Chuck via her speed dial and he arrives, along with Nate and Raina, to save her. When they're out of the building, they sneak into a bar mitzvah to have a drink and relax before she goes to see Louis. While at the party, they end up having sex and Blair tells Chuck that even though she's happy and secure with Louis, they don't have the passion that she has with him. After hearing this, he stops Blair from ending things with Louis and gives his blessing for them to be married. They admit that they will always love each other and say goodbye.

Before the ceremony, Blair confesses her love to Chuck but unbeknownst to the both of them, Georgina films the entire thing and lets it play during the vows.

Devastated at this turn of events, Blair flees her wedding with Dan; hoping to get to the Dominican Republic to secure a divorce without Louis. Before she can leave, however, Louis' mother Sophie catches her and tells her that if she runs, the Waldorf's will have to pay the dowry; which would bankrupt them.

The next day, they team up to bring Bart out of hiding; which they successfully do (The Fugitives).

At the same time, Gossip Girl has begun releasing pages from her diary and Dan quickly assumes where Blair's heart truly lies.

However, Blair chooses to be with Chuck and attends Bart's press conference instead. She then witnesses Bart publicly cut Chuck out of Bass Industries. Afterwards, she tells him that she is still in love with him and will do anything to make it work; including taking care of them with Waldorf Designs, as Eleanor previously asked her to take over as CEO. However, Chuck rejects her, saying that she's played too many games and he can't live in her shadow. A few weeks later, Chuck travels to Monte Carlo with Jack in an attempt to win enough money to fight against Bart. Blair shows up at the casino they're at and again proclaims her love for Chuck, saying she's all in.

Once he's gone, Blair works with Serena, Georgina, Ivy, and Sage Spence to bluff a confession out of Bart to get him imprisoned. However, Bart quickly figures out what she's up to and orders her to stop. At the same time, a news story airs about a Bass jet that went MIA while in the sky. Fearing that it's Chuck's plane, Blair breaks down but pulls herself together when Chuck appears and announces to everyone that Bart tried to have him killed.

Chuck: The reason we can't say those three words to each other isn't because they aren't true.
Blair: Then why?

Blair: We don't have to do those things. We can do the things that we like.
Chuck: What we like is this.
Blair: The game.
Chuck: Without it, I'm not sure how long we'd last. It'd just be a matter of time before we messed it up. Look, I'd rather wait... and maybe in the future...

Chuck: I would never wish that on anyone. I want you to be happy.

I love you so much it consumes me. I love you and I know you love me too. Tell me you love me and everything we've done, all the gossip and the lies and the hurt, will have been for something. Tell me it was for something.
Chuck: Maybe it was, but it's not anymore.
Chuck: You were right. I was a coward running away again, but everywhere I went, you caught up with me. So I had to come back.

Chuck: I've been meeting with the board of Bass Industries all morning. I told them I want to cash my shares out. Risk it all. They think I've lost my mind.
Blair: Have you?
Blair: Then how can you be so sure?
Chuck: Because you believe in me.
-The Lost Boy (3x3)
Chuck: Look, NYU is hard, but Blair Waldorf does not give up.
Blair: I'm not giving up. I've made a strategic retreat.
Chuck: Potato, potato.
Blair: You don't understand.
Chuck: I do understand. Let me help.
Blair: No, Chuck. NYU is not the Upper East Side. They don't care about Constance or the social hierarchy, they don't care that I'm Blair Waldorf! It's over.
Chuck: And you do this to me.
Blair: What are you talking about?
Chuck: I'm Chuck Bass. And I told you I love you. You're saying that I'm easier to win over than a bunch of pseudo-intellectual homesick malcontents? You'd really insult me like this?
Blair: That's not how it is.
Chuck: That's exactly how it is. So the next time you forget you're Blair Waldorf, remember I'm Chuck Bass and I love you.
-Dan de Fleurette (3x4)

-How to Succeed in Bassness (3x7)
Chuck: My father always thought I was weak. And in the moment that mattered most, I was. I couldn't be there when he... I left. Ran away. I've been pushing myself to prove him wrong and... pushing you away.
Blair: I don't think you ran away because you couldn't handle death. I think it's because you couldn't handle feelings. But you aren't like that anymore. You're strong. You carry people. You carry me. You're becoming a man in a way that your father never was. Come. Let's say goodbye.
-The Debarted (3x12)
Chuck: I spent 18 years accepting the fact my mother was dead. It was misguided to let one of my father's girlfriends allow me to question that. TO hope things may be different.
Blair: Your real mother would never turn her back on a chance to know you.
Chuck: I don't have a real mother, Blair. I never will.
Blair: That doesn't mean you're alone. I love you, Chuck, and I'll always be your family.
-The Hurt Locket (3x13)
Blair: Please tell me Jack was lying. You wouldn't betray me like that.
Chuck: Me betray you? You're the one who just came from seeing my uncle!
Blair: I went there for you. Because I thought it was the only way to save your hotel. I would've done anything to help you. All you had to do was ask.
Chuck: If I had asked, it wouldn't have worked. You would have been too willing when Jack came to you, and he would have known we were working together. I did what I had to to win.
Chuck: I can't let my feelings cost me all that I've built.
Blair: Even if it means losing me instead. All I ever did was love you.
Chuck: The worst thing I ever did. The darkest thought I ever had. You said you would stand by me through anything. This, Blair, is anything.
Blair: I never thought the worst thing you would ever do would be to me.
Chuck: You went up there on your own.
Blair *slaps him*: Goodbye, Chuck.
-Inglourious Bassterds (3x17)
Chuck: Blair, you and I are magnetic. You can feel it. Our pull is as undeniable as ever.
Blair: It's different this time.
Chuck: It doesn't have to be. I love you. Saying it was hard, but I did and I've never looked back. So now I'm asking you: please do this for me. Please forgive me.
Blair: I'm sorry, I can't.
Blair: Everything you said last night was true. We do belong together. We're both sick and twisted. If you think about it, we're incredibly fortunate to have even found each other.
Chuck: Blair, I don't want this to be you settling, some sort of consolation-
Blair: We've both his rock bottom, Chuck. But we've hit it together. At least we won't be lonely in hell.
Blair: I want what Dorota and Vanya have. Real love. Pure and simple love.
Chuck: You'd be bored within five minutes.
Blair: Better bored than ashamed of myself. I would do anything for you, Chuck, but what if that's wrong? I never thought it was possible to love someone too much but maybe it is. I don't like who I've become with you.
Chuck: Wait, Blair.. don't bail on me. We have to see this through to the end.
Blair: This is the end, Chuck.
Blair: I wasn't going to show up. I was resolve not to. Every bone in my body tried to slow me, every voice in my head screamed don't.
Blair: But I didn't listen. I followed my heart because I love you. I can't deny that our path has been complicated but in the end love makes everything simple.
-Last Tango, Then Paris (3x22)
Blair: Just because you're dressed poorly doesn't mean you're not Chuck Bass.
Chuck: Why would I want to be him?
Blair: You should've told me you got shot.
Chuck: I'm surprised you didn't shoot me yourself.
Blair: I have. Many times. In my dreams. The good ones. But if you were really hurt, I would want to know.
Chuck: When I woke up my ID was gone. Nobody knew who I was, nobody was coming to look for me. I realized I might be alive but Chuck Bass doesn't have to be.
Blair: Changing your name doesn't change who you are.
Chuck: It's a good start. A chance to live simply, earn people's respect.. maybe become a person someone could love.
Blair: Someone did love you. And you owe it to her, and everyone else you're leaving behind, not to run away. Which is what you're doing. And I don't think that great man you're talking about wanting to be.. is a coward. I think he would face up to what he did.
Chuck: I destroyed the only thing I ever loved.
Blair: I don't love you anymore. But it takes more than even you to destroy Blair Waldorf.
Chuck: Your world would be easier if I didn't come back.
Blair: That's true. But it wouldn't be my world without you in it.
-Double Identity (4x2)
Chuck: I know what you did, Blair. It's despicable. Even for you. Do you hate me so much you can't stand to see me happy?
Chuck: So why did you drive the one person I care most about out of town?
Blair: Eva left? Chuck, I never meant to-
Chuck: Make her leave me? Of course you did. I need to know why. Is it possible you still love me?
Blair: How could I still love you after what you did?
Chuck: So you did it just to hurt me. Eva made me into someone I was proud to be, you just brought back my worst self. This means war, Blair. Me vs. you. No limits.
-Touch of Eva (4x4)
Blair: If you're here to deliver any further humiliation, Dorota can sign for it.
Chuck: Jenny was right. If we keep going, we'll both end up dead and I like myself too much to let that happen. I assume you feel the same way.
Blair: About myself? More. What do you suggest?
Chuck: A truce.
Blair: Why don't you just skywrite the word "double crossed", it would be more subtle.
Chuck: Look, we can keep blaming each other for what happened that night, or we can admit a harder truth. It was no one's fault. It was fate. Tragedy.
Blair: If Serena hadn't kissed Dan, Nate wouldn't have been at the hospital looking for her, and Jenny wouldn't have gone looking for Nate.
Chuck: If Dorota hadn't gone into labor..
Blair: Maybe everything would be different. But it's not.
Chuck: We're holding on to the pain because it's all we have left. But we don't have to. We have a choice.
-Easy J (4x6)
Chuck: I wanted to let you know the treaty is over.
Blair: Fine with me. This pretense of civility was exhausting.
Chuck: Being amicable isn't in our blood. I've realized we aren't friends. Friends have to like each other. And after what happened tonight, I could never like you.
Blair: I could never like you either. In fact, I hate you.
Chuck: I've never hated anyone more.
Blair: Every nerve ending in my body is electrified by hatred.
Chuck: There is a fiery pit of hate burning inside me ready to explode.
Blair: So it's settled then.
Chuck: We're settled.
War at the Roses (4x7)
Chuck: I love public.
Blair: I love condemnation.
Chuck: I love you.
Blair: ....Of course, no one does black like Dior.
Blair: As long as I'm with you, I'm Hillary in the White House, and I want to be Hillary, Secretary of State, but with better hair.
Chuck: Then you'll find another way to show the world you're a force to be reckoned with. We'll build our futures together.
Blair: I followed my heart all last year and it led me nowhere. Now I have to follow my head.
Chuck: You don't need to choose between them. Look at Brad and Angelina, they take turns on top!
Blair: Yeah, but she won an Oscar first. I'm sorry, but I have to be Blair Waldorf before I can be Chuck Bass' girlfriend.
Chuck: I love you.
Blair: I love you too. I don't expect you to wait..
Chuck: If two people are meant to be together, eventually they'll find their way back.
Blair: Do you really believe that?
Chuck: I do.
Blair: So do I.
-The Witches of Bushwick (4x9)
Blair: This looks like the dress Diana wore the day after she became princess.
Chuck: Yes. I wanted you to wear it in the photo with me. I had no idea I could just ask. It's not too late. You don't have to be powerful on your own first, we can build our futures together.
Blair: The saddest part is that I'd come to the same conclusion. But now that I know I'm ready, I realize you're not. I thought that everything you went through: Prague, Eva, Russell, that maybe you'd changed. But.. who was I kidding.
Chuck: Don't say that.
Blair: You have years before you're capable of a real relationship, if you ever will be. I'm sorry, Chuck.
The Kids Stay in the Picture (4x18)
Chuck: There's a difference between a great love and the right love. I left The Empire State Building last year two minutes after you didn't show. Louis waited all night. This is your chance at happiness. You think you shouldn't want it because you've never had it and it scares you, but you deserve your fairytale.
Blair: We make our own fairytales.
Chuck: Only when we have to. You don't. How do you feel about tonight?
Blair: Awful. I just- terrible. In fact, I've never felt like this before.
Chuck: Guilt. I feel it too. Maybe I'm actually growing up after all.
Blair: I didn't want to let you go just yet.
Chuck: Don't ever let anyone tell you you're not powerful. You're the most powerful woman I know.
Blair: It's taking all the power I have to walk way from you.
Chuck: I know. But I need to let you go. You need to let go.
Blair: I will always love you.
Chuck: I will always love you.
-The Wrong Goodbye (4x22)
=== Season Five ===
Blair: If I know anything about Chuck Bass, it's that fatherhood is not part of the lifestyle.
Chuck: You must have been very relieved when you found out you weren't carrying my offspring. That certainly would have derailed your fairytale.
Blair: This fairytale is complicated.
Chuck: Blair, meet my dog, Monkey.
Blair: I saw Gossip Girl, I thought you got rid of him.
Chuck: I sent him to get fixed, I thought it was the responsible thing to do.
Blair: I should go... Louis' waiting for me. There's a part of me that really wanted it to be yours.
-The Jewel of Denial (5x3)
Chuck: I'm sorry for losing my temper the night you told me Louis proposed to you. I'm sorry for not waiting longer at the Empire State Building. I'm sorry for treating you like property. I'm sorry I didn't tell you I loved you when I knew I did. But most of all, I'm sorry that I gave up on us when you never did.
Blair: Thank you. I hope never giving up on people isn't gonna be my downfall.
Chuck: It's why you're going to be an amazing mother. You're always there for the people you love even when they don't deserve it.
Blair: You know that's never gonna change.
Chuck: It's okay if it has to. Starting tonight, I'm going to take care of myself.
-I Am Number Nine (5x6
Chuck: You never pulled me to the dark side, Blair.
Blair: I appreciate you trying to make me feel better, but I have my answer.
Chuck: You're the lightest thing that ever came into my life.
-Rhodes to Perdition (5x9)
Blair: I have to tell Louis face to face that the wedding is off.. he deserves at least that.
Chuck: Are you sure you want to do this? A prince, a fairy tale wedding, this is all you ever wanted.
Blair: No.. you're all I ever wanted. I love you. I love every part of you. I-I couldn't tell Louis that he wouldn't ever lose me because it wasn't true. You're the one I never want to leave.
-Riding in Town Cars With Boys (5x10)
Blair: I just came to tell you what a wonderful person you've become. And I hope you won't let this change that.
Chuck: Well don't leave me.
Blair: I'm not doing it to hurt you.
Chuck: You sat in the car and you said you'd never go. We were going to spend the rest of our lives together and now you can't even look at me. Now you.. don't even care enough to tell me why?
Blair: I saw what was important and I made the only choice I could.
Chuck: If it's not an affair with Humphrey, something else changed you, what was it? Cause love does not just disappear.
Blair: We can never be together. Please, Chuck, just move on and be happy.
Chuck: I can't. Until I know why, I won't stop. I will use all the power I have to find out the truth.
Blair: Some things are more powerful than even you. I'm sorry. Don't let this destroy all the good in you. Just because we can't be together doesn't mean I won't love you.
-The End of the Affair? (5x11)
Chuck: Don't marry him.
Chuck: Don't marry him.
Blair: All those people out there are waiting for me-
Chuck: Yes, they are. But they also want you to be happy, which you aren't going to be if you go through with this. Tell me I'm wrong and I'll leave. You can't. Because it should be us up there and you know it.
Blair: It isn't not that simple.
Chuck: It's only that simple, you told me you love me, I know it was true.
Blair: It is! Of course I love you Chuck, I've always loved you. I love you more and more everyday if it's even possible to love someone that much.
Chuck: Then get out of here with me right now. We can go anywhere, just as long as we're together.
Blair: I know you can't understand, and I don't expect you to. But even if I weren't with Louis, I couldn't be with you. Just know that not living with you is the hardest thing I've ever done. But at least I have someone who loves me by my side. You should find someone who loves you too.
Chuck: I have. She's standing right in front of me.
Blair: I know it sounds crazy, but I really am doing this for you.
Chuck: Hey, don't worry. I'll protect you from Louis and whatever his mother threatens, if there's a dowry I'll pay it.
Blair: I can't let you buy my freedom.
Chuck: If it means getting rid of them, it's worth whatever the cost. I'd do anything for you.
Blair: No... not like this. I made a promise and I need to keep it.
Chuck: To God? Please. You broke that promise when you left Louis. And look, I'm still standing.
Blair: Chuck, I need you to let me handle this on my own. What kind of chance do we have if our fresh start is you buying me from Louis? When and if we end up together, it has to be as equals, with nothing over our heads. That's the only shot we have.
Chuck: I can't stand the thought of you with anyone else, I don't care what it costs or where we have to go. I just want to be with you.
Blair: Louis won't lay a hand on me. I promise. I'm sorry. This is how it has to be.
-The Backup Dan (5x14)
Blair: And I love you. I always will. But that doesn't mean I'm in love with you. At least not right now, not the way you need me to be, not the way you deserve. I'm sorry.
-The Princess Dowry (5x17)
Blair: You fought for me all year. I've come to fight for you.
Dealer: Will you be joining the game?
Blair: You said I always bet against you but this time I'm all in.
-The Return of the Ring (5x24)
Chuck: Blair, I love you with all my heart and that is the reason we cannot take the chance of messing this up.
Blair: Sure, cause what would your father think if you failed? That I distracted you. That you sacrificed your empire for me.
Chuck: Blair, you are a distraction. Cause when we're together, you're all I think about. And I would give up my empire for you, I would give up everything for you. After a couple nights in Monte Carlo, I lost track of all time.
Blair: We were exhausted and starving. I think I had an actual fever.
Chuck: But that's not why we need to do this, and neither to prove a point to my father.
Blair: Then what?
Chuck: In the past, I blamed my mistakes on you and Bart was right on that count. It's the boy who blames the girl, not the man, and that's what I want to be with you. It won't be much longer. I promise.
-Gone Maybe Gone (6x1)
Blair: I'm all yours. Mind, body, and scheme.
-Dirty Rotten Scandals (6x3)
Chuck: Will you go to war with me?
-It's Really Complicated (6x8)
Chuck: Just have faith in me. This one last time.
Blair: But I've waited too long and I need to be with you now!
Chuck: Blair, trust me. Letting me go is the right thing to do.
Blair: No. Don't get on the plane, Bart has already hurt so many people-
Chuck: I know what my father is capable of but he would never try to kill his own son.
Blair: Then... do one thing before you go. Kiss me, Chuck Bass.
-The Revengers (6x9)
Blair: Jack is right. Chuck and Blair hold hands. Chuck and Blair go to the movies. You said you never wanted us to be boring... well, we definitely aren't that now.
Chuck: I was a stupid child when I said those things... A life with you could never be boring. Blair Cornelia Waldorf... will you marry me?
Cyrus: Do you, Chuck, take Blair to be your lawfully wedded wife?
Chuck: Three words, eight letters.
Cyrus: Blair, do you take Chuck to be your lawfully wedded husband?
Blair: One word, three letters, yes!
-New York, I Love You XOXO (6x10)
