I think Blair is an awful human being
She really is, even though for some reason much of online fandom (does GG have a non-online fandom at this point?) finds her root-worthy, as well as her pairing with C. But, what's so grating is that the show obviously WANTS us to find her/ them sympathetic.
It's like, ok, we get it: Dan is evil. Not just evil, eeeeeevvvvillll! Bart Bass evil! Bart is the devil, and Dan is his son. In fact, we'll probably find out that Dan is
Bart's biological offspring, and Chuck and Scott were actually separated fraternal twins who were formed inside Rufus and Lily's waffle maker.
So, to review: evil Dan: check! good Chuck (give or take a couple attempted rapes and a human trafficking transaction here or there): check! Anvils: CHECK!
I actually don't mind Chuck-- sure, he should've been locked away in S1, but that was SO long ago. I mean nobody associated with this show on any level-- writers, actors, or characters-- can seem to remember what happened from one episode (or scene) to the next, so why should viewers trifle with such matters? And Chuck is actually likable in a roguish sort of way when he's separated from the insufferable Blair.
But, Blair is abominable. None of these characters-- actually, with the possible exception of Chuck-- have progressed from who they were in high school. Dan has obviously gotten worse, and the other three are exactly the same. But, only Blair actually celebrates it as part of her core identity, to the point that she's actually trading off it now. Well, half of it-- she's figured how to sell the scheming bitch half, but she has yet to devise a way to market the co-dependency half.
Just one episode removed from reconciliation with her BFF, she immediately proceeds to scheme to wreck said BFF's relationship. Of course, her actions end up coming off justified because BFF's BF is so eeeeevvvilll.
(Got it? Dan = evil; I know I keep pointing this out, but it's easy to miss with this show's penchant for writing subtlety.... seriously, has there ever been another show that is so overwritten that it actually recaps itself??
But. Blair. Needs. To. Die. Hopefully, Chuck will be saved from the plane crash by using Blair's body as a flotation device, and he'll use one of her stupid headbands to paddle to safety.
