Nate May Go to a Darker Place on Gossip Girl

at . Comments

With all the recent Chuck and Blair drama - and to a lesser extent, Dan and Serena debate - among Gossip Girl fans, Nate Archibald has almost been lost in the shuffle.

Say this for Nate - he's not digging Serena's (Blake Lively) obvious mental illness, or Taylor Momsen's infamous eye makeup. Well, Chace Crawford isn't, in any case.

"It's an expensive habit," Chace laughs. "It's an expensive raccoon thing."

"She rocks the look, though, I guess."

But is there any hope for Jenny and Nate? Chace admits: "I always thought [Nate and Jenny] was a little weird. There's the age gap, she's still in high school... "

As for a certain blonde girl he dated for a big chunk of this season?

"[Serena's] got some issues," Crawford tells E! Online's Kristin Dos Santos. "[But] you're the next one because you're the Nate girl. You got the flowers, right? And the wine and all that? Just making sure. I've been hitting you up for awhile, no response."

Flirting with the interviewer? That's a new one ... a funny new one.

The Gossip Girl season finale was the stuff of legend, and Chace hints that it may propel Nate into a darker place. "That may be where they're going," Crawford says. "It'd be fun to play."

"Who knows, maybe I'll even be the one getting shot next year."

Okay... we like his sense of humor, but don't joke about that, man!

Okey Chace you will even be the one who will have an indecent proposal storyline next year and you will even be the devil boy,keep calm man!!!But sorry Chace you are too much lame to act on that kind of strong stories.You are good at shiny haired,boring pretty nice guy.


He never liked Nate/Jenny! He doesn't seem to like Nate/Serena either.


I like the way you think @jim.


Gossip Girl needs a flip make Jenny come back with a Vengeance and make her straight up psychoictic and go to extremes like destroying people. Like Kimberly in the old Melrose Place. She was a crazy bitch who blew up the apartment complex, and try to kill people. Make her do that, please please please, btw it would make a great exit for her for since Taylor Momsen is obviously done with the show. Anyone agree???????


umm i like ya nate, but dont kid around about the shooting! that made me and lot of people very upset!! haha


once again the writers ****** WTH...i want a better storyline for Serenate. now they're ruined it..Enough with the dark side.. Nate been that and done that.. focus more on Serenate pleeaseee!!!!!!!!


Gossip Girl`s story is starting to be way too heavy, there`s no way to breathe within all this drama!!!


One thing I like about Nate is that he is kind of the Anti-Chuck. He is sweet and simple. Chuck & Blair, Jenny, and Georgina will always be my favorites. However, Nate is a good character too because his stories usually are NOT so melodramatic (other than the issues with his dad getting convicted in Seasons 1 and 2). He is a nice change of pace from the rest of the show's craziness. So I hope they do not make Nate's life too dark and tortured.

Al in germany

Looks like he's already in a dark place. Too dark to shave!

Gossip Girl Quotes

And who am I? That's one secret I'll never tell ... You know you love me. XOXO, Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl

[to Jenny] That's the thing. You need to be cool to be queen. Anne Boleyn thought only with her heart and she got her head chopped off. So her daughter Elizabeth made a vow never to marry a man. She married a country. Forget boys. Keep your eye on the prize, Jenny Humphrey. You can't make people love you, but you can make them fear you. For what it's worth, you're my Queen. I choose you.
