Let’s start with Nate this week. I usually don’t talk about Nate very much because he has thus far been the most boring character on the show. Yes, even more boring than Dan and Vanessa. Nate, as a male lead, has not had any chemistry with any of the leading ladies… except Serena in the flashback to their passionate one-night-stand in the first season. He was out-matched by Blair’s sassiness, mismatched with Vanessa, and kind of creepy with Jenny. But with Serena he makes sense: two beautiful people with amazing looking hair and old-money pedigrees. Carolyn Bessette Kennedy and JFK Jr come to mind. I want this to happen. Move over Tripp, I’m now officially crushing on Nate. Gayface and all.
It seems that the writers are getting rid of all the parents one by one. It’s too bad that Eleanor and Cyrus are ‘moving to Paris’. It seems that they could have done a lot more, what with Eleanor Waldorf being a top fashion designer and all. It seems like it wasn’t even mentioned past the first season.
Thankfully, we still have the always elegant Lily. She is just perfect.
