When it comes to doing reprehensible things in Gossip Girl, we all know Dan Humphrey takes the cake for being King Douche. But his lady love Serena Van Der Woodsen isn’t much better.
“WHAT?!”we hear you say. Yes, the ‘it’ girl might have had the best wardrobe on the Upper East Side, the nicest hair, and the huskiest voice you ever did hear. But she’s also a bit of a dick.
Let’s take a look, shall we…
1. Okay, we’ll start with the absolute worst. Cardinal sin number 1, if you will. SHE SLEPT WITH HER BEST FRIEND’S BOYFRIEND AND WTF MAN.
Yep, Serena went ahead and bumped uglies with Nate Archibald, who was in a long-term relationship with Blair, then skipped town. Then she didn’t get why Blair was so pissed at her when she came back. Dick.
2. She was the hot mess everyone else had to look after during most of her time at high school. Dick.
3. Being inadvertently involved in that dude’s death in that weird druggy orgy sitch we can’t really remember what happened with. It involved Georgina. Dick.
4. Oh yeah, and that poor innocent professor going to jail/having his life completely ruined because of a fake report that he slept with Serena, his student. Granted, this was Lily’s fault and omg, can you even imagine the issues you’d have if she was your mum?! But still. Dick.
5. She blooming loved running away when things got tough. Face the music will ya, Serena? Dick.
6. Trying to butter up that Yale recruit to beat Blair for a space and DESTROY HER LIFE-LONG DREAM in the process. Then she ends up following her to Columbia anyway. Total dick.
7. The sheer nepotism involved in her ‘career.’ Oh, to be so illustrious to become a publicist, government intern, professional blogger and film producer assistant with no real qualifications. Dick.
8. The poor life choice that was sleeping with the married politician you’re interning for. There’s also the fact Trip van der Bilt is the aforementioned Nate Archibald’s cousin so it’s already a bit of a weird one. Dick.
9. Also got jiggy with her professor. Dick/fantasy come true (whichever floats your boat).
10. The overdose. Even though it was accidental, her poor, poor family. Dick.
11. When she had those weird daddy issues that made her do super wack things to get into the paper so her dad would notice her like hijacking that horse at the polo. Dick.
12. The fact she and Dan still ended up together even though they share a brother. Sorry, I just can’t… Dick.
13. Ending up with Dan even though he admitted he’s Gossip Girl and is therefore a LEGITIMATE PSYCOPATH. Massive dick.
14. The fact Queen Blake Lively found it “morally comprising” playing Serena van der Woodsen. Says it all really.
Aaand we’re done.
