*"Chuck in Real Life" Spoilers Included!*
In this week's Gossip Girl, "Chuck in Real Life," it was time to show off the "happy" Bass-Van Der Woodsen family and though the episode was pretty Chuck-centric, it was more Van Der Woodsen and less Bass that ruined this classy social event.
So what was Chuck up to while Serena was ruining the family image? Trying to sleep with one girl to get another, of course. Yet somehow in all this, this episode was probably the most heart we've ever seen from Chuck Bass.
I thought we'd seen him as real as he was going to get when he was falling for Blair then fighting to get her back, but this week, Vanessa's Brooklyn project actually got to Chuck's heart as he saw more to himself than the rich jerk, and more to Vanessa than a bet with Blair that would get him well, Blair.
It was looking like it may actually turn into C+V, but instead ended in some steamy C+B, then C-B! I never thought I'd be proud of Chuck for hurting someone, but this time I actually think he told Blair she had to chase him now because he truly does have a heart and wants better for himself than to be used by the girl he loves - shocking!
So what does this mean of the Chuck Bass we know and love to hate? Will he only be more nasty because Blair can't and doesn't love him or is he going to be softer and more vulnerable than we saw him when he was first falling?
