Just rewatched 5.11; didn't notice before the way Chuck scammed Louis into exposing Blair and Dan at the party, just so [Chuck] would come out innocent when it blew up in their faces, LOL! There are no characters like Chuck on TV (or like most of the GG crew, for that matter). Love it!
I thought it was Louis's idea (and handiwork) to expose Blair? Didn't he say something about how she wouldn't be able to lie in front of all those people and Chuck basically nodded?
Except in this case he's scheming against the supposed love of his life.
Given the fact that Blair is lying to the love of her life, abandoning him, and marrying someone else, I donít see the big deal in Chuck scheming ďagainstĒ her to find answers.
That, in a nutshell, is why I can't deal with Chuck as a character anymore. He shouldn't have to be told to stop sexually assaulting his ex-girlfriend. He shouldn't have to apologize for trading her for a hotel, treating her like property, and losing his temper. These are things that shouldn't have to be forgiven. It doesn't matter if Blair has the capacity to forgive him for his past sins; no girl should ever have to.
Any other time Chuck has come onto Blair, she has been ready and willing to sleep with him. I don't fault him to trying to sleep with someone who he's been sleeping with on and off for the entire series and stopping once he realized she didn't want to. Not to mention the fact that she pulls him into a room at a Bar Mitzvah to "have her way with him" two episodes later.
