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.

@actors that can act "penn's a better actor than ed" are you serious? Ed nails every scene he does. Whereas penn doesn't show enough emotion in his scenes, have you ever actually seen dan cry or get angry or upset thats rememberable at least? Chuck has so many memorable scenes an mainly because of his acting. Especially when he works with leighton. But that's just my opinion. I don't really have an opinion to this episode it was ok. I'm not hating dair as much as I thought they are kind of cute but mainly as friends. Still hoping for a chair reunion but I can wait:-)

@Guest They deserve to fall even further, I want to see the excuses CW will probably make if/when they try to force another season of crap on us.

@momo83 So it's only selfish when Dan does it, but not for anyone else. This is what I'm talking about people singling him out.

@momo83 of course, a lot of characters have completely been out of character, especially Blair, who's become a whiny, pathetic shell of herself.

The writers can seem to develop any of the characters properly, they only know how to ruin them.

I've admitted Dan's out of character moments, like the stupid video tape drama.

I was just pointing out how you were only singling Dan out, especially when some of the other characters were responsible for the issues you pointed out.

Last night this show had the WORST ratings in it's entire history (1.01!)...with the extreme focus on this ridiculous version of Blair and the complete lack of care for all the other characters it's just not worth watching anymore...

@Jeca You're absolutely right. Dan doesn't have any consideration for the chain of events to come or the people he may hurt by acting on his selfish feelings for Blair and neither does she. Ugh, this is so dissapointing.

@Anonymous I'm not twisting things and blaming everything on Dan. I'm stating facts to make a point that Chuck is not the only character that's out of character. If anything I'm not surprised by Chuck's actions this season (just my opinion). Guess what the writers are taking turns screwing up everyone's character, and in my opinion this season Blair and Dan are the two most out of character. Chuck had his moment in season 3 and part of season 4 when the writers made him do awful things to blair, which you keep bringing up. Serena had her moments season 3 and 4 also. All I'm hearing are justifications from you as to why Dan did the things he did. I assume your favorite character is Dan, which is why you can't admit to his out character moments.

@pty I know you didn't write it, I was just saying that. The recap makes the show much more interesting than it actually is.

@ Anonymous: hey, take that one with the TWOP recapper, I didn't post this because of a Supernatural comparison, but because he was making a valid point about the characters being used as plot devices instead of well, as characters.

Dair is also in that "The House of Mirth" spirit that GG writers affectionate. Lily Bart/Blair, the ultimate NY socialite is in love with an outsider.
