Toronto-based freelance writer The End of Gossip Girl: Dair While I’m disappointed in how the series ended, I’m still appreciative of the writers for taking a chance on the most unlikely couple. I instantly became a fan. He was a middle-class boy from Brooklyn who became the Nick Carraway character we viewers could live vicariously through. She’s a brunette Regina George — a character we’re supposed to see as a villain, but can’t help but love because of the charm and great comedic talent of Leighton Meester.

You don’t want to see his enemy kick. Sure, I might fantasize about smothering her in her sleep sometimes, but that doesn’t mean we’re not friends! Two people are supposedly friends, except they seem to hate each other. They’re always bickering, insulting each other or outright whupping each other, which leaves the audience wondering, “How the hell are these people friends?
Once in a while they’ll have a heartwarming moment which will make the audience go ” Aww, Look!
Although her and Nate start dating, her and Serena don’t get along. Over the season, it is revealed that Juliet is out to get Serena because of something Serena did to her family in the past. Charlie Rhodes: Charlie is Serena and Eric’s long lost cousin whose mother forbid her .
Edit Lily had been upset that Charlie hadn’t been seen since the accident and hired a private investigator to track her down. The investigator accidentally found the real Charlie, who was enrolled at Juilliard. When Lily thought she saw Charlie, she called out her name and Lola turned around and said that was indeed her name which lead to Lily believing she found the wrong Charlotte Rhodes.

‘Gossip Girl’ Season 6, Episode 3 Recap: Dan Double-Crosses While Chuck And Blair Double-Team
Or is she simply an empty-headed cipher, a pretty projection of every man’s desire and every woman’s insecurities? Asking these questions may mean taking Serena more seriously than I’m inclined to, but they have fast become the theme of “Gossip Girl” Season 4. In the past, we’ve been led to assume that Serena is merely a victim of fate — the girl who ended up in the wrong hotel room on the wrong night, who can’t stop loving either of the guys who had her heart in high school, who fell for a guy who she didn’t even know would end up being her professor.
Now, everything is starting to change. Her refusal to choose between Dan and Nate has gone on for so long it’s become infuriating.
Nate and Serena never get back together. Golden boy starts dating Carol’s real daughter Lola (not Ivy Dickens). They meet at Louis and Blair’s wedding where she is working as a cater waiter.
This week’s ” Gossip Girl ” wasn’t quite as infuriatingly regressive as episode , but it’s becoming increasingly difficult to feel much empathy for any of the characters when they’re all such manipulative, selfish wastes of oxygen. I know, I know, welcome to the entire premise of the show. But while their irresponsible behavior was somewhat forgivable when these entitled Upper East Siders were in high school, shouldn’t they have learned something after five years of making the same mistakes over and over again?
Dan has truly become the privileged social climber he always aspired to be, and in the process, has become worse than any of the former friends who he feels have spent the last five seasons slighting him. Lonely Boy was once our innocent everyman, a window into an unfathomable world of excess that most of us could only shake our heads at from a safe distance, but now it seems as though the writers just want to see how unlikeable and irredeemable they can make him in the final ten episodes.
It doesn’t really bother me, since I never much cared about Dan and his pretensions, but I’m assuming the character had some fans, given the vocal “Dair” contingent last season, and I can’t imagine they’re thrilled with the turn he’s taken. Yes, Dan’s friends are terrible people, but they were born terrible people, with terrible role models and every opportunity afforded to them; Dan actually grew up with a supportive, relatively normal family and a comfortable but not excessively affluent lifestyle, and yet he tossed all those life lessons away to become just another spoiled little rich kid with more vanity than sense.
That character evolution is far more disappointing than anything Serena, Blair, Nate or even Chuck has ever done, because they’re used to getting away with being terrible, whereas Dan aspired towards it, even after he was given every opportunity to course-correct.
A definitive ranking of every shitty boyfriend Serena ran through on Gossip Girl
Not surprisingly it was a tad anticlimactic. The episode starts the day after Serena tells Blair her secret and Serena is nowhere to be found.

I had to let out my feelings. Dan and Serena have broken up and gotten back together for like a million times. And each time they get back together, they only last 2 or 3 episodes before they decide to break up again. This shows that don’t work, as everytime they get back together, 2 or 3 episodes later, something comes up that makes them fight and break up. Nate handles a Serena episode better than Dan. Nate went through a similar situation wtih Serena in season 3, that Dan went through with Serena in season 1.
Lets compare how these guys handled these similar situations. Dan Season 1 Dan hooked up with Georgina before they were even officially broken up, hours after Serena told him she cheated on him. When he found out the truth, he helped her, but he broke up with her in the end. Nate Season 3 Nate was mad at Serena for all the lying, but was patient with her. Even when he thought she left town with Carter, he patiently waited for her to return. He didn’t hook up with Jenny, even if she kept throwing herself at him.
