Serena? Oh lord. Is there a single episode where we can say: Well done S. No. She's always taking the wrong decisions, choosing the wrong guys, betraying her best friends, cheating on a boyfriend with an ex-boyfriend, and when everything else fails, she goes back to drugs. Five seasons of that. Neat job writers. They could even kill Serena and almost nobody would care (Probably Lily would be happy since this means more money for herself) I've seen many attempts to make the audience believe S has become a better person but it all turned our to be a tease. I missed that gorgeous blonde with a haunting past from season 1. Same thing with the other characters... I used to love this show but won't be watching next season. My own finale is Chair, Dan going to Europe, Nate becoming a boring media mogul and S getting away the UES for good.
The writing for this episode was better than the whole season, but this finale was far from perfect. The writers have screwed every single character to the point where I cannot root for anyone but Rufus and maybe Nate. Blair is totally ruined, the writers turned this well-spoken, independent, strong and bitchy queen into a inconsistent, pathetic girl who doesn't know anything about her feelings. I'd love Chair as an endgame if they hadn't had Blair saying her heart didn't belong to Chuck anymore or how she loved him but wasn't in love with him and then 5 episodes later she falls in love again. That is a poor script. All season long she quite forgot about her dream of world domination and now just because mommy is retiring she finds the impetus to go for it again. Please, give me a break. She's selfish and keeps on making the same mistakes once and again. Doesn't Chuck deserve for once this girl goes back to him single??? Everytime she has chosen him she happened to be in a relationship. Quite mature.
