@Ace I'm not comparing Dan's or Chuck's deeds, wrong is wrong and right is right. Chuck has made mistakes, Blair has made mistakes and so has Dan. If Dan was the one that sent that video he is just as wrong for not coming clean and for taking part in ruining the marriage Blair wanted at the time.

@momo83 What do any of these guys see in Blair? She's honestly not worth it to go through all that unnecessary drama.

Chuck has gotten flack because of what the writers did to him in Seasons 3 and 4 and now he's just here waiting/pining for Blair while she makes dumb excuses and continually makes 1 stupid choice after another.

@Guest Its funny, but I made a similar statement on the facebook page. Her acting with Dan has been off. It's a little over the top as was her acting with Louis. Chair's interaction seem more natural.

@Guest I wouldn't be sure about the Chair scenes. "I love you! I can't possibly love you anymore than I already do!" Whoever wrote that terrible dialogue needs to be fired ASAP. It's like they ripped off those lines from some cheesy Hallmark greeting card. Leighton like the rest of the cast seems bored of the show and you can tell they want to get this over with.

The overall character interactions were a lot better back then, less over the top dialogue as if they took it from some corny Lifetime film or something, which is what we're getting nowadays.

@Ace Why do you think Nat has no real storylines? He's just there to bang the next female guest star and hang out with the other actors occasionally.

@Anonymous I included Blair in the same sentence as Dan. In my opinion (key words) they are both being selfish. And yes, Chuck, Nate and Serena have had their fair share of selfishness, but not in this season. I am currently referring to the dan/blair story arc. Honestly, Blair is being more selfish than Dan. She led on the prince knowing she didn't really love him, led chuck to believe she wanted to run off and be with him just to start up a fling or relationship with Dan (mind you she is still married). I think Chuck is catching alot of unneccessary flack in all of this because from the beginning of season 5 up until now (not next week's episode), Chuck has only done what blair wanted him to do.

I really used to enjoy the acting of Leighton Meester as Blair. But in the scenes with Dan it feels like she is "over-acting" most of the time. A lot of people seem to enjoy the "bantering" between these two characters, but to me it feels very forced, without real depth and trying too hard to come across as "funny" and "cute". Dan as a character on the other hand comes across much cooler and more interesting when he is with Blair. What I enjoyed so much with Chair was, that the chemistry felt so natural, subtle and well balanced between the actors. That was until season 5 when their scenes were reduced to one single pattern...Chuck pining over Blair and Blair making up ridiculous excuses not to be with him - without ever really dealing with the relationship and issues between them! What a waste for such an charismatic and beloved TV couple...

If there's one actor that can't act on GG, it's Chace Crawford. He's eye candy. He doesn't need to "act" but to simply take off his clothes and screw every guest star that walks through the set.

He has this consistent dumbfounded look on his face every single time. I mean, Chace is pretty, no doubt, so when he's the official man candy of GG, he isn't there for "acting".

LOL

@pty The writers haven't really given Dan anything emotional to work with.

@Gemsiibear I wouldn't be so sure, the actor doesn't seem to like where his character is going, he's even rightly criticized the show, he's just whispering his dialogue, I don't blame him, the actor is better than this mess.

Leighton is decent when she's not forced to whine and make a fool out of herself when the writers degrade her character.
