Gossip Girl Round Table: "Cross Rhodes"

3. You already know. Yes it's entertaining but it only serves to prove my point. Chuck is who Chuck is; he's a lion then claims to be a vegetarian but when it comes down to it, he pounces on gazelles whenever the mood strikes. That a changed person does not make.

2. I don't think that Blair is someone to be won, so I'm not supporting the whole winning statement, but in terms of coming off as a better character: Hands down. I'm not been a Chuck fan. I think he's limited and regressive and incapable of actual true change and that's mainly the writers fault. But yes, for someone to be as changed as he his, he doesn't bat an eye does he when he reverts back to the old Chuck Bass when the situation calls for it.

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

@momo83 And I'm certainly not saying that Dan is perfect. I have been saying that my hope that the hint on who submitted the video was a classic bait and switch because if it wasn't, it would be yet another way the writers are contriving everything just to allow a season 5 DAIR when consistency should've been from season 4 DAIR and Louis should've departed. But in comparison of Dan's misdeeds and Chuck's, the latter is far far far deeper in the scales of transgressions than what Dan has done combined.

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.

@JAS 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.

@momo83 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.

@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.
