C purring in B’s ear
Something I noticed rewatching :) 
1.08
B - From this moment forward, the events of last night will never be mentioned again, is that clear?
C - Not as clear as the memory of you purring in my ear, which I have been replaying over and over.
I love that Blair Waldorf, a WASP virgin queen had bad boy Bass pretty much under her little finger.  I looked for instances where B purred in C’s ear, but I mostly found the opposite (although they never did show us the limosex that happened “several times”). Blair purred to Nate in 1.01 (that was really quite amazing “Wanna do It. Noooow.”). But most of the time it was C purring to B.  I love that moment in 3.04. Chuck and Blair have more chemistry in a simple phone call than DB did having sex. :-) I love that Blair closes her eyes for a bit in 1.08 before she says, “Well erase the tape.” It’s like she’s replaying it too, in her mind. 
For Chuck, the girl he loves has always, only, ever been Blair.

I noticed some similar lines when I rewatched 2.13 today, thinking about the season 5 finale.  2.13 is obviously much more powerful, but the similarities struck me.

Blair’s concern for Chuck, her courage to be honest to him and herself, that she loves him in good times and bad (hee cb wedding!), that it is a powerful, all-consuming love that she cannot hide from.  

The line, “You have me” in 5.24 reminded me of “No.  But I am me.  And you are you. We’re Chuck and Blair.  Blair and Chuck.”

And when Blair told Chuck in 2.13 “Don’t leave.  Or let me come with you”, it reminded me so much of when she said, “Let me be part of [your future] to Chuck.”

It was interesting in the GG voiceovers - with Bart’s death, in 2.13, and in 5.24, alluding to the “death” of B’s happily ever afters.

Please let me know what you think :-)

▲Chuck Bass and Scarlett O’Hara▲
Although I always found the dynamic between Rhett and Scarlett on the  one hand and Chuck and Blair on the other to be similar, I also have to  agree with those who claim that Chuck is as different from Rhett as  possible and Blair, despite all her flaws, appears to be a far better  person than Scarlett.
It’s true. Chuck Bass is no Rhett Butler.
That’s because he’s a complete Scarlett O’Hara.
They are both twisted and heartless children, often playing with  other peoples’ feelings. Their personalities could be described as  toxic, since they destroy everything around them. At the same time  they’re trying to reach the impossibly high standards of their beloved  and feared parents. But no matter how hard they try, Chuck is not that  mature young man Bart wants him to be and Scarlett isn’t a real lady  like Ellen expects. They constantly fail and the truth is that it’s  actually their own fault.
They go through many hardships to maintain the only thing they seem  to value in life - their parents’ legacy. Chuck traded his girlfriend  for The Empire and I doubt there’s anyone who will argue that Scarlett  was ready to sell her soul to keep Tara. Trying to reach their  impossible dreams, they forget what’s really important and lose their  loved ones. When they realize that, it’s already too late.
Also, somehow twins always find them.
