Don’t get me wrong. With this I don’t want to compare this couples or the shows. I just want to give my opinion about some comments I’ve been seen about The Royals, but mostly about this couple. (This will contain spoilers about The Royals and Gossip Girl, so if you want to see them stop reading)
First of all I have to say that I really like Jaspenor (now). The main reason why I started The Royals is because people told me that it was ‘’The new Gossip Girl’’. Gossip Girl is one of my favorite tv shows so naturally I gave it a shot. I must say that some things are similar, but in the plot this shows are totally diferrent.
Chair, (aka Chuck Bass and Blair Waldorf) is (for me and other people) the best couple of the show and one of the most famous couples of tv history. You may like them or not, but you have to admit that. For the people that have seen Gossip Girl since the beginning, you have to admit that Chuck Bass was a total asshole in the first and second season (mostly first) but is also one of the best characters ever made and also he is really loved for the fandom. But why?
Chuck try to rape (yes, rape) both Serena and Jenny (the Jenny part was way worst), treat women like crap, make his girlfriend (Blair) sleeps with his uncle to save his company, even making a contract in which he ‘’sells’’ her. And some other staff, (but we can’t forget about his past, his family, etc). The truth is that, at the end of the series, everyone loves him, including me. Why forget all of it? Because he changed. Chuck Bass is one of the best examples for ‘’character development’’. He make things better since them, he improved in every possible way, for the love of Blair, and that is the best thing in a tv show. And the same thing happens with Jasper and Jaspenor.
When I started the show I didn’t like Jasper, but I was able to admit that he was a good character. I’m not saying good person, just good character. He was the mysterious part of the show, and with Eleanor they have the best story of the show (they still have). Jasper is a complex character, who acted bad, really bad. He told Eleanor he had sextape of her, ‘sleept’ with her mother (gross), try to rob her. But if you continue the show you know why he did it, not understand it, justknow. Like Chuck, Jasper has a past, parents that I don’t were a very good example him, and have to steal for living. He came to the palace to steal, so when Eleanor threated to fire him, he lied. Of course is a bad thing, but at least they gave us a reason for why he does what he does. I think that in season two and three (the two episodes we have) he has proved that he cares for Eleanor, and also I think she can help him to be a better person (of course Eleanor has her problems too but that’s another thing)
I like the couple, I really do. They are the most interesting thing about the show and without them, there will be no show. I understand that some people don’t like them or prefer Beck and Eleanor (for me I just don’t think they have good chemistry, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t like Beck, he is a good guy) but I’m tired of comments insulting the fandom that likes them, making them feel bad for liking them. I like the evolution of Jasper, and I want to see more of it (it tooks a while for Chuck, I don’t want to see an instant change, is not realistic) and also I want to see the development of the relationship, slowly or course because Jasper is not easy to trust.
To finish I just wanted to say that I don’t want anyone to feel ofended or something, this is just my opinion about a couple and a show, please don’t leave mean comments and if you have another opinion and you want to say it, say it correctly please, Every opinion matters if it is said with respect.
(Posted this a few months ago but I 100% have to post this as I’m posting photos from the Gossip Girl finale)
Literally THE best moment of the finale, I just wish we could have seen Blair go through pregnancy, her and Chuck finding out she was pregnant, Henry growing up. But still it’s so cute oh my goodness!!
