So, one of my favorite TV shows to binge during quarantine has been Gossip Girl.
There are lots of iconic couples on the show, but today I want to talk about a relationship that should have been endgame: Nate and Serena.
The ending simply did not do their relationship justice, and I need to talk about it. Here are some moments that prove Nate and Serena were meant to be!
First, when Serena came back from boarding school in the pilot and Nate was so excited to see her.
When Nate tried to tell Serena he wasn’t over her at the masquerade ball, but accidentally told Jenny, who was wearing Serena’s mask.
When we saw them being total goofballs in the Thanksgiving flashback.
When they rekindled their friendship and had this super sweet exchange.
When Serena pretended to be Nate’s girlfriend at the White Party to make Catherine jealous and they had this iconic kiss.
When Serena asked Nate to distract her from Tripp, so he took her on a bar crawl.
When Nate revealed what he tried to tell Serena at the masquerade ball two years earlier.
When Nate asked Serena to stay with him.
When Nate slept in the hospital by Serena’s side all night after her car accident.
When they finally got together for real.
And then when they walked out of the party together acting all cute and innocent as if they hadn’t just hooked up in a closet.
When they had this adorable, flirty play fight in the kitchen that turned into, like, the hottest scene ever with “She’s on the Move” playing in the background.
When they stuck by each other through everything, the good and the bad.
When Serena apologized for leaving the morning after the Shepherd wedding all those years earlier.
When their banter was just too adorable.
When Serena was there for Nate even after they broke up.
When Serena knew she would always love Nate no matter what.
And finally, when Nate looked at Serena like this as she walked down the stairs in her wedding dress.
Serenate deserved better!
