Well by that logic Serena didn't do anything wrong. She married Dan 5 years in the future. She had enough time to forgive him for his mistakes in the past. Blair could forgive Chuck for some heinous things he did to her...then why can't Serena forgive Dan. Not that I care about either. But that's the same reasoning. You can't hate one character for making mistakes and treat the other one as a wronged hero, for having done something in his past equally bad. Anyhow my point was none of the characters evolved, grew up at all and whatever growth they had made over the seasons was lost in the end. Hate Chuck all you want to or Hate Dan all you want to, it doesn't change the fact that they are terrible characters with serious persoanlity disorders. All of them need a psychiatrist, even Chuck as despite going to one, the guy could never quite deal with his severe Daddy issues.
I don't even want to get into what they did to Dan as a character. The way his character turned in season 6 the guy belonged on American Horror Story: Assylum rather than GG. Lol.
Serena... Turned out to be exactly what Dan described her to be, somebody who is so desperate to get love that she ends up marrying a man who humiliated her for the longest time. Derena was never meant to be a tortured psychotic relationship. Twisted Angst was for Chair.
Blair just became my least fave character by season 6. Annoying, whiny, hungry for love and acceptance by Chuck, god. I can't with Blair at all. Her mere presence n voice irritated me by the end.
I have nothing to say about William and Lily. Disgusting.
@pennfan24 Serena already forgave Dan after knowing he was gg in like 2 seconds. Chuck paid for his mistakes but Dan did not they all forgave him in like 5 seconds. Dan and Serena got together in finale if you were actually pay attention.
@cb are never over. You don't have to agree to anything I say and its alright. Chuck didn't make progress as a character because if in season 5 he was taking therapy, becoming a better person...he should have let Bart go about his business in season 6 instead of obsessing over it and not getting back with Blair till Bart was dead, coz that showed Chuck's ego to be more important to him than Blair. More than any of chuck's actions, his main issue has always been his seflishness...that didn't show much change and yes Bart was an asshole who tried to kill his own son, but if Chuck really was a good person or had completely transformed, he would have not let Bart die in the way he let him.
Serena did forgive Dan instantly, because she's dumb and stupid. But the difference is Chuck and Blair have had time to resolve their differences. The angst had time to develop and heighten between them and that was in a way the most attractive part of their relationship. Derena were never the same, they were a simple sweet realtionship, not something that could psychoticness. But even though Serena did forgive Dan instantly, she took 5 years to marry him.
Dan's no way better than Chuck and neither is Chuck better than Dan. They're all selfish characters, and absolutely not normal. This show potrays women characters to be even worse...coz it just shows that women want love, just love even when the guys have done everything horrible possible to them. Chuck might have done it in the past. But he did pimp blair out... William lied to Lily. Cheated on her with her sis...and Dan well he was a psycho stalker and humiliated his girl. Yet all these women chose to be with men like these, so in a way this makes all the women characters on the show so much more pathetic.
Btw when I say all this and I say that Dan and Chuck are equally bad and think noone's a good person on this show. Its not because I don't like negative characters, I absolutely love well potrayed psychotic, negative characters too...but this show has the worst characterization in history. Actually cut it, none of the characters on this show had a personality, or story left in the end. N btw all through my two fave characters on GG have been Chuck and then Dan. Now they both suck. Lol. Chuck became boring, ever since season 4...his whole Bass industries obsession and that unecessary man pain. Well the lesser said about Dan, the better. The show started with some well sketched characters and they botched them so badly in the end.
@pennfan24 chuck is not bad person for not saving Bart and I tell you why. If you actually watch rooftop scene Bart was trying push chuck of the cliff and chuck hit him in self defense. Bart knew there was no camera up there he was trying to kill his son on the rooftop and that was the whole point of Bart bringing chuck to the roof. One of reason why chuck did not save him was because he did not trust him anymore. If chuck helped then he would feel stupid again believing his words. Bart already crossed the line and there was no going back. Chuck was protecting himself and the people he loved by not saving Bart. So if they makes him a horrible/selfish person than whatever.
Bart is an asshole and I'm not saying he wouldn't have tried to kill Chuck later... But if Chuck really was a good person deep down, he would have even put his own safety at risk and saved his dying father. I really thought that Chuck would give him a hand and Bart would still slip. If they had shown that, maybe I would have taken Chuck's transformation a little more seriously...I get he was trying to defend himself and he should have, but just helping out a dying helpless man would have made Chuck somewhat of a better human being. And honestly even if Chuck gave Bart a hand, its not like Bart would have regained so much strength that he would have sprung on Chuck there n then. N there were two people there...Chuck n blair and everybody was unarmed. Not only this, chuck not even once felt guilty that his father died. Even if it wasn't his fault. He could have felt a lil remorse, coz that would have showcased Chuck as a good person. Maybe. Its the writers fault for making all the characters on GG to be so unlikeable.
You're never going to share my view so that's okay..and neither will I agree to whatever you say. Most people hate Dan with a vengeance, here, but that doesn't make a difference. I still hate Blair more than I hate Dan and Chuck. Who I like or dislike equally. Inherently the writers finished all the difference between Chuck n Dan..and they pretty much became like each other. Some of you can hate for pretending to be a good person, while the others can hate Chuck for failing to be a good person. So if you think he's a good person, doesn't make him bad and neither me saying he's bad makes it bad. So argument is quite redundant here, which is fine, coz its all about perception and the show was quite ridiculous anyways. Hopefully you won't take offense to anything I say or have said.
[to Jenny] That's the thing. You need to be cool to be queen. Anne Boleyn thought only with her heart and she got her head chopped off. So her daughter Elizabeth made a vow never to marry a man. She married a country. Forget boys. Keep your eye on the prize, Jenny Humphrey. You can't make people love you, but you can make them fear you. For what it's worth, you're my Queen. I choose you.
