Em: I love this picture though it is completely awkward. Poor Serena doesn’t seem to be a part of the group here. This concerns me because when Serena is upset she gets all pouty and talks without moving her mouth. Then she fails to trust people and trouble ensues but people always forgive her because she’s so sweet. It must be really hard being Serena. Don’t you feel bad for her? At the start of the series, Serena was one of the few characters on the show that I liked (as a “person”). That changed within a season or two to her being one of my least favorite characters. I’m tired of her. I would give up on her if I were her friend. I would only be friends with Dorota, Nate, and Cyrus. We would go to the park and feed the squirrels and talk about how feeding birds is overrated and so are all our other friends. That would be nice.
Nora: I agree that she has grown tiresome, but I think there is potential for a turnaround. In the books, Serena is always happy and always gets what she wants. It is so refreshing to have a character that has no issues and is all self-confidence and perfection. Too bad the writers for the show can’t translate this. I do think they are going to latch onto the whole Chuck-is-bisexual thing next season, so at least we have that to look forward to.
As far as friends, I think Vanessa has the most potential.
