After Blair kisses Chuck goodbye, but before he sits down with his mother and starts to tell her everything, he promises to call Blair in the morning. And in his voice there is a break, a momentary song that shines through, like the sun. For one second he could giggle, or cry, or burst open. In that moment before he turns to her and Blair smiles into the camera, he is sweet, and young, and perfect. At least we burn trying: It's all there in his voice, and the tremble in his lip. Charlie's first smile.
