The Nate Archibald
I feel they have ruined Nate. Whenever you think they'll finally let him be the good romanctic guy with a happy ending, or the good loyal friend, or a mature guy with a real relationship, he ends up screwed.
The main thing that I thought of that made me make this discussion is:
Has anyone else noticed that whoever Nate sleeps with you end up hating? (Diana, Ivy/Charlie, Sage) etc
After the 1st season, Nate became a 5th wheel on the show. Dan had Serena, Chuck had Blair, Nate had a revolving door of annoying love intrests.
Jenny was suppose to be his other half on the show but they delayed their union too long and then Taylor went Linsday Lohan.
The only other time his character actually fully jived with a love intrest was Lola, and I honeslty belive if the actress hadn't booked another show, Nate and Lola would still be together and we wouldn't have to deal with Sgae.
poor Nate. I didn't love him in s1 (he was a pretty bad boyfriend to Blair and not the best person) but he did have some really good qualities (sticking up for his family, being a good person deep down, etc) and he was a MAIN character. After around season 2, they relegated him to the background, and that sucks. He's gorgeous and he CAN obviously act when they give him the opportunity. As part of the NJBC and the main cast, they really have done Chace/Nate/us a disservice. These stupid writers :P
