I didn't say he was innocent. My point is that he is not to blame for Chloe's infidelity, she is. Just as Philip isn't to blame for her cheating on Daniel. That was her choice, her decision, her responsibility. I understand that Lucas doesn't like Daniel and I don't blame him. But, he shouldn't be blaming Daniel for what happened because Daniel didn't make some kind of commitment to Lucas. They weren't even really friends.

Well, that's your perception of him, but it doesn't change the fact that he hasn't cheated on anyone. Thus, it's not hypocritical of him to be upset that Chloe cheated on him. Stupid maybe, but not hypocritical.
What he did to Lucas was a real scumbag move, so it isn't suprising that he got a taste of his own medicine. Afterall, they do say that karma is a bitch.
I will never understand the idea that Daniel is to blame because Chloe couldn't say no. Chloe made the commitment to Lucas, not Daniel. Chloe is the only person at fault for Lucas being hurt because she's the only one who could hurt him. I don't expect Lucas to like Daniel, but blamiing Daniel makes it sound like Chloe had no control and she's an innocent victim. She's not. She made the commitment, she broke it.
I like Daniel...but he did chase a married woman. He actively pursued her. He wasn't innocent.
And this isn't even about Daniel specifically. It's about the general idea of blaming the third party for an affair. The person who deserves blame is the spouse who cheated, IMO.
