Gossip Girl Season 6: Does Serena’s Relationship With Steven Weird You Out?
When it comes to wearing a high ponytail or properly walking in stilettos, Serena (Blake Lively)’s our girl. As for relationships? Well, she hasn’t had the best track record (or role model, ahem, Lily). So, imagine our surprise when, all of a sudden, S seems to be doing “girlfriend” like a champ. Other than freaking out momentarily about the Steven (Barry Watson) and Sage (Sophia Black-D’Elia) sighting, she does a great job looking like Steven Spence’s other half.
But — can we just take a second and talk about it all? First, where did they meet? Is anyone else confused how Serena goes from bleeding out her nose on a train to Poughkeepsie, to... living in a Jenny Packham dress in said town with a vitamin salesman? Pardon our observation skills, but this all seems a little weird.
Second, how did Steven and Serena live together all summer without his ever mentioning a daughter? It’s one thing to have a secret kid at home while you date casually, but a 17 year old who is, in Serena’s words, “old enough to share [her] clothes”? Father of the year material right there, folks.
Third — and this is a big one — Serena’s boyfriend’s daughter is dating the guy S lost her V Card to. Do we need to say more about how weird that is? Because it’s weird, guys. Really, creepily, incestually, weird.
Fourth, Steven is just not attractive enough or interesting enough to be with Serena van der Woodsen. Sure, that’s just our opinion, but Gossip Girl has done little to make him seem awesome. What do you think? Are we just being overprotective or is this whole thing a little fishy?
