A thread to discuss Chuck Bass. ^_^




I find Chuck to be such a deliciously complex character. On the one hand, he's completely manipulative and sexy, but on the other hand he's so very insecure and starved for affection. I'm curious to hear other people's thoughts on why it took him so long to finally say the "three words, eight letters" to Blair. I was discussing with one of my 3D friends, and he thought it was because Chuck believes Blair deserves better. I think that's certainly part of it, but I think the bigger part is what was addressed in the finale--fear. We see Chuck's attempts at having a relationship with his father get bitterly rejected again and again. I think Chuck can't tell Blair he loves her at the beginning of the second season because he's afraid she won't say it back. (Which is why he's so intent to get her to say it first circa 2x8.) But after she does say it, my theory doesn't exactly hold up. I guess I think he's afraid she'll change her mind? But why does he finally say it at the end of the finale? What changed between the scene where she's basically begging him to tell her at the party and the final declaration by the limo?

I agree. But what was the push that finally made him express it?

Which is why the ending didn't really make sense to me. I liked the symmetry of starting the season with the "3 words, 8 letters" intro and then ending it with him finally saying them, but I thought there were so many other points in time where he had more of a reason to say them--when he came to apologize for the brunch, when he found her with Carter, when she was losing herself at the Vanderbilt party, in the restaurant when she told him she'd leave Nate for him, at the graduation party when she basically begged him to finally tell her. I didn't see what changed between that party scene and the sidewalk scene. She wasn't going anywhere. She wasn't with anyone new. Why then?

Ohhh. Okay. Thank you. I knew you'd be able to explain it for me. :)
