All Vows Lead Back To Chuck & Blair
Gossip Girl has had four weddings on it, three of which we saw the vows. In each of the weddings where we heard and saw the vows, they all related to Chuck and Blair. The words in the vows fit perfectly each time for who Chuck and Blair are, what is going on with them at the time, and who they eventually want themselves and their relationship to be.
Cyrus & Eleanor: Cyrus: “I Cyrus, take you Eleanor, to be no other than yourself” Eleanor: “I give you my love, I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine”Lily & Rufus: “I know that our future will be just like us, flawed and fragmented, and full of more love than I ever thought possible…”Vanya & Dorota: (This is when asking Vanya questions before the wedding, his answer to what he loves most about Dorota) “There’s so many things I love about her, but I think what I love most is the way I feel with her, with Dorota I am the best possible version of myself. I have peace in my heart knowing I will be a good husband, good father…”
The only wedding that didn’t show the vows was Bart and Lily’s, but instead we got a speech that has been the epitome of what Chuck himself has to be worthy of and what Chuck and Blair can be based on, which is forgiveness and love.

Chuck to Blair: (At Lily and Bart’s wedding) “One thing I learned from my father’s courtship of Lily is the importance of perseverance. That in the face of true love you don’t just give up, even if the object of your affection is begging you to. And one thing I learned from Lily is the importance of forgiveness. She gave my father the gift of a second chance and in kind, I’ve watched him become someone actually worthy of that gift. And one day I hope I’ll be lucky enough to find someone who will do the same for me.
Now we just await the vows that will matter the most, Chuck and Blair’s

▲ Peonies ▲Meaning: The traditional floral symbol of China, the state flower of Indiana, and the 12th wedding anniversary flower, peonies are known as the flower of riches and honor.  With their lush, full, rounded bloom, peonies embody romance and prosperity and are regarded as an omen of good fortune and a happy marriage.
2.15 ≈ 3.18 = I’m sorry, I screwed up. || Please, forgive me.2.25 ≈ 3.22 = I love you too. || Blair, will you…?
Not pictured: in 4.20 Chuck wants to propose but the whole thing doesn’t go right. Louis goes to Blair’s house and he brings peonies = he asks her to marry him. Maybe Chuck had to bring peonies too and not be drunk lol

▲ Chuck and Blair + mirrors ▲
We’ve had a scene every season of Chuck and Blair looking at themselves (in the specific case of 2.03 they’re just reflected in the mirror, but they’re not watching themselves) in mirrors.
Mirrors mean various things. Look at ourselves and face honestly what we’ve done, or the future and how we shall move, and how we see ourselves - ? - years from now, or someone we identify with. And the appearance of course. Mirrors can also reflect light and like I wrote in the other parallel, Blair shines with Chuck, so.
In 1.08 Chuck had given Blair an expensive necklace. He wanted to make her day better, but he also was giving her, his heart. If you noticed, there’s a heart charm in the middle of the necklace, hehe. He also confessed his feelings for the first time, because that ‘Define like - there’s something in my stomach, fluttering’ to me was more like a ‘Yeah Blair, I fell for you but I feel too confused and ashamed of myself to admit it yet, because I’ve never felt this way before in my entire life’. He comments on how that beautiful piece of jewelery can be only perfect on someone who deserves its beauty. The gesture may look like an usual playboy behavior to soothe the girl and take her to bed, but there’s too much romanticism in his words than it seems, because he knew her better than any other guy, he knew that she was unsure of her appearance, but he truly admired her. Looking at themselves in the mirror he was meaning to tell her ‘What the hell, Blair. Have you seen your reflection? Have strength and believe in yourself. You are beautiful but you’re the only one who doesn’t see it. To me, you are perfect. You succeeded in melting my heart.’
In this case when Blair looks in the mirror and sees how the necklace is perfect on her fair skin despite the sarcastic start ‘Is that our sex tape?’ because she doesn’t take Chuck seriously, and that Chuck truly bought it because he knew she wanted it so bad to be happy. She wanted Nate to give it to her so that he showed her, he still loved her (remember in 1.07 she asks Nate if he loved her, but Nate doesn’t answer). She starts to reassure, and starts to believe. ‘Wow, there’s someone that thought about me! But it’s Chuck Bass. He’s bad, but… I am attracted by him.’ After that he takes her hand and kisses her shoulder. A gesture so sweet and intimate that I don’t believe he’s done with any other girl. This is the very first step of their relationship, Blair becoming older, and Chuck facing he has feelings for the FIRST time.
This is the first ‘maybe in the future’. Seeing each other in the mirror and realize they can. Blair can grow self esteem, and Chuck can grow actual and pure love for someone.
In 2.03 Chuck looks blocked. He wants Blair so bad it hurts but he can’t say those three little words she wants to hear from him, because as he says in 2.01, he was afraid she could have seen the real him during the Summer, and this scared the shit out of him because he was afraid to look at himself and see that he was actually changing, maturing. So to have Blair he has to think a way, and luckily for him there’s a blackout, because in the dark everyone can show its true colors shamelessly, since the darkness covers them, and the blindness makes it impossible to see even a little scar or imperfection we may have. We aren’t afraid in the darkness. But when the lights go on…
3.18 is the post IP episode. Blair looks at herself in the mirror, and she’s not truly happy because she feels weak. She let her guard down and was being played by the person she slowly started to trust. She sees that she doesn’t like what she’s became with Chuck (hence the ‘I don’t like what I’ve became with you’ line) and seeing herself there pretending to be happy when she isn’t, makes her feel bad. She felt loved and Chuck truly gave himself to her, but he wasn’t capable yet of pure and altruistic love. Then Chuck appears behind her, the reflection of them together makes her smile as he gives her a new necklace, but then she thinks again. She abruptly leaves him there saying that ‘At least they won’t be lonely in hell’, there’s where she sees her now. In the fire, with no chance of being saved. Or in a cul de sac. ‘Am I happy right now? No. I am afraid. Afraid he could do that again, that he could play my heart that way if I give myself to him so easily again. I’m not ready yet for this. I don’t know if I’ll be ready again. Not now. I can’t even look at myself.’ That’s why she can’t bear to see herself with him, right there.And let’s talk about the last one (theoretically) of episode 4.09. We have not one, but two mirror scenes. The first, where Blair fixes Chuck’s tie and they talk about what they are - that in my opinion makes them look like a married couple - and the second, when Blair’s dress is open and Chuck’s hand lies on her belly. Okay I don’t want to talk you about my dreams, it will be too long, but shortening, I could came to the point to think that reflection #1 could mean that they could really become a married couple. They looked like one, they see themselves as one despite the fact that there both thought they were having just sex. They were both afraid the other didn’t love  him/her anymore, and so they kept keeping the flame alive. Chuck wanted to marry her after all, and I’m sure if Louis wasn’t around, we know from the finale that she would have said yes. Because they so looked married there, don’t lie. In the mirror scene #2, oh boy, let me say that I would have never expected to say something like this, like I would have never expected to see Chuck last year almost proposing, but this is a hell of an amazing foreshadowing. As you may know, I am strongly convinced that Blair is the one pregnant, and that they may make her keep this baby. I want it soooo bad. As you may have read my fan fiction, you know I love CB + a baby.
To end this long ass post, let me say that the last CB + mirror parallel brings me to the season finale. Chuck and Blair not only see each other together in their future, they also see themselves together as a family, and not just the two of them. And I just love this so much.
