For too many seasons, “Chair” shippers – aka the ‘Gossip Girl‘ fans who want Chuck together with Blair – were left to wonder: Will they or won’t they?

Last year those shippers got their wish, and Chuck and Blair proceeded to make for very hot ‘Gossip’ indeed. But now there is talk that the oh-so-perfect romance will be oh-so-over by season’s end – and all due to Chuck committing a “horrible” and unforgivable act, says E!’s Kristin.

Is Chair in fact losing its legs?

Besieged by fretting fan bases, ‘Gossip Girl’ boss Josh Schwartz Tweeted back “Trust” – an economy of words that hardly hushed the angry mob.

‘Gossip Girl’ enthusiast Daniela, for one, emailed me to ask, “Can you offer any reassurance or new information on Chuck and Blair without resorting to word choices only meant to give fans a bad case of jitters?”

To Daniela and friends, I bring you an exclusive response from executive producer Stephanie Savage. Whether it simmers your jitters is out of my hands.

“Last year, Blair made a pledge to Chuck: ‘The worst thing you’ve ever done, the darkest thought you’ve ever had. I’ll stand by you through anything.’ Well this spring, this oath is tested,” Savage tells Fancast.

No one at the show is officially confirming the rumored break-up – let alone what Chuck might do to precipitate it. Instead, Savage only teases: “Will Blair stand by her man? Or has Chuck finally played one game too many? Tune in and find out.”

What do you think, ‘Gossip’mongers? What could Chuck possibly do to make Blair break her oath? I mean, this is Chuck Bass after all. What misdeed has he not yet done?

The CW’s ‘Gossip Girl’ returns with fresh episodes Monday, March 8, at 9/8c.
