    Who cares? This is plain silly. Blake doesnt even know how to make a relationship real.

    Final season and a new love interest? Oh you’ve got to be kidding me! I hope Serena and Dan/Nate will end up together.

    She’s Katie Holmes 2.0. People want a piece of her while she’s on the show, but she’ll fizzle once the show ends. Funny, Dawson’s Creek also ended after 6 seasons.

    He is like 4 years younger than Kelly Rutherford who plays Lively’s mother. WTF?

    She’s a b*tch. I thought she was so nice but now she’s changed. I don’t know why.

    i don’t think they should have added a new love interest right at the end- she should end up with Dan/Nate to end gossip girl.
    Either way though if Chuck and Blair don’t end up together then i’d be vexed.

    I don’t want her to end up with Dan. She works better with Nate. Dan belongs with Blair and Chuck belongs at the bottom of the sea….or a jail cell.

    I like her look in the braid and poppy yellow dress with tarquise earrings.

    Why the hell do people want Dan and Serena to end up together? They were an AWFUL couple and he is now disgusted with her after how she tricked him into having sex with her in the Season 5 Finale. Serena and Nate endgame please, writers.

    @Kathryn: @Kathryn: i agree with you with everything you said about Dan and Serena, but she shouldn’t end up with Nate. He is really sweet, and so nice, and she doesn’t deserve him, not after she’s turned to be so mean. i mean, she’s a real ***** now, and I don’t thing Nate should be with that kind of girl. Maybe it’s good that they brought in a new character. Maybe he is the right one for Serena..
