If he criticized Blair, it would've been in his book.

In the earlier seasons. He often was scornful of Blair and her actions, privileges, headbands, etc. in Real Life. If someone painted me in a flattering light in a book, yet criticized and talked down to me in real life, I'd place more weight on their actual behavior... that whole "actions speak louder than words" thing.

No one knew about Louis' motivation.
I'm referring to the time when Dan wanted to stop his story about Blair from being published and asked Louis to do it. Blair thought she'd been stood up, but Dan knew better and said *nothing*. He let her think the worst as it meant running off to the Hamptons with her.

I don't know anymore. I honestly don't want B with anyone. It doesn't make sense to me how she can love Chuck more and more everyday and yet still have feelings for Dan. Back when Serena did this to Nate and Dan everyone was annoyed with her, but it's okay for Blair to do the same? Makes no sense to me.

@Ace The difference between Chuck and Dan is that Chuck owns what he does, which is why he made it no secret to Dan that he was the one that messed up his book proposal. However, Dan is a coward he tried to pin the video coming out during the wedding on Chuck, knowing good and well he sent it out himself(and he still hasn't confessed this piece of information to anyone yet).

Chuck never made a public display that he's a changed man, he's just trying to become a better person. He is what what he is. This was one trait I use to like about Blair, she never portrayed herself to be an angel. She was who she was until the 2nd half of season 4 she became the female version of Dan. Acting above everyone else and pointing everyone elses issues, but her own. Dan has been wearing many faces since season 3 and has been going back and forth from good to bad.

When it comes to Chuck's change, let's not forget that Dan was a contributing factor. Nevermind that almost punching Blair didn't wake Chuck up from his alcoholic bender, but it was actually Dan's portrayal of Charlie Trout's suicide that moved Chuck to be more than just the sum of his actions.

And when Chuck was all hollowed out trying not to "feel" in even more self-destructive behavior, it was Dan who brought Monkey into Chuck's life.

I use OOC because the writers have this constant lack of consistency. While I do think Chuck's change into being a good person is within his established character, because characters aren't two-dimensional beings that stay the same for five years, it's OOC that the writers have him revert to his old ways at their convenience.

And it's insult to injury because Chuck has this self-proclamation that he is a changed person, that he is good, and yet at almost every opportunity, he reverts back to his old ways without hesitation or without blinking. What good person goes out of his way to destroy and besmirch a professional name all because he's going after "his" girl? And the only reason he recants is because "his" girl tells him so? Forget the fact that his ever-present love for "his" girl allows him to sleep with Alessandra like some meat puppet to further his own goals, or double-face the man who essentially lead him to this pivotal moment of introspection, no, Dan's choice are "just" as bad as Chuck's.

In comparison, Dan hasn't done nearly enough to come to a fraction of Chuck Bass misdeeds.

I'm sorry but i really hate the term OOC.....i mean we arent the writers, we arent the producers....who are we to say 'blair is OOC'? sure we are fans of the show and follow it intently because we love the characters etc but at the end of the day its up to the writers.
i even read an earlier post i think on tumblr or here (cannot remember there are so many to scroll through) but what the person said was 'the writers are ruining chuck....he has redeemed himself and now they ruined him by making him seduce alessandra...he is so OOC'...im sorry but wasnt redeeming him making him OOC?...lol why is it ok for chuck to change and redeem himself but not ok for blair to change her opinion on dan?

@momo83

The way the writers portray him as an inherently bad person that can't rise above his true nature is why the character IS a bad person. Their decisions make Bass into nothing more than just his actions.

And when comparing Dan's choices vs Chuck's, the former's does not even come one ounce difference in the scale with all of the latter's choices: violent behavior, misogynistic tendencies, Machiavellian manipulation, the constant means to an end mentality, self-serving actions more often than not, and destructive behavior that impacts not only the self but everyone else around him.
