They’re not a stop along the way, they’re the destination.
Clearly the show’s most maarufu couple, “Chair” mashabiki were… less than thrilled when the gruesome twosome put their epic romance on hold and decided to just be Marafiki for the time being. Savage explains the decision to take a break from their relationship: “Overall, I think that we felt like that was the natural evolution of Chuck and Blair’s relationship and something that we wanted to see happen to the characters. I think it’s frustrating mashabiki who just want them to be together and be happy, but we have to save the finish line for the finish line.” We think all Chuck and Blair mashabiki should find major comfort in that last part, keywords: “finish line.”
