Gossip Woman is, at its core, all about interpersonal relationships. Whether or not romantic, platonic, or familial, Gossip Woman created as many relationships as doable, as complicated as possible, and that is the place all of the enjoyable and drama come from.
Nevertheless, through the years, narrative necessity meant some fascinating potential relationships by no means obtained to see the sunshine of day, particularly as sure plots never got the attention they deserved.
10 Blair and Eric
With Eric and Jenny occupying the ‘youthful technology’ of the Higher East Facet for a time, Eric was primarily wrapped up together with her and her numerous schemes, whereas Blair was in fact centered on her personal standing and her personal greatest associates. That being mentioned, it’s not unusual in the actual world for 2 greatest associates to have some form of relationship with one another’s siblings, and with Eric being Serena’s youthful brother, it could have been fascinating to see how they had been in a position to have an effect on one another.
They doubtless might have supported one another, particularly whereas Serena was away, and Eric probably might’ve been the nice affect for Blair that he was for Jenny.
9 Juliet and Georgina
There’s nothing higher than two unhealthy guys teaming up, particularly after they’re really unhealthy ladies. Each Juliet and Georgina took all types of delight in tormenting the Higher East Siders, and neither was afraid of absolutely committing to their often-complicated plans.
Their distinctive positions in relation to the principle forged would have made them unstoppable – Georgina knew them too effectively, whereas Juliet provided an outsider’s vantage level, permitting her to choose up on weaknesses Georgina was too near see.
8 Nate and Eric
Eric suffered from not having a lot in the best way of male function fashions, and Nate seems like the sort of guy who might get deeply invested in another person’s success, particularly when he noticed himself as the principle contributing issue to that success.
It will have made sense, particularly in the course of the interval the place Nate and Serena had been relationship, to indicate the boys connecting as associates.
7 Vanessa and Serena
Vanessa was just about consistently an agent of chaos, foiling most if not the entire fundamental bunch’s plans at one level or one other. Nevertheless, in a unique world (the place no boys obtained between them), Vanessa and Serena might have been associates.
Possibly even greatest associates, given how a lot they’ve in widespread. In the event that they weren’t on the Higher East Facet, or perhaps simply if Serena were in a slightly different position, the 2 creative free spirits might have been a drive to be reckoned with.
6 Ivy and Blair
Whereas Ivy Dickens was extra a software of an evil genius than an evil genius in her personal proper, Blair might have taken Ivy below her wing and confirmed her methods to actually get what she wished.
If Ivy hadn’t spent a lot time making an attempt to wreck the entire fundamental characters’ lives, there might have been a non-zero probability that Blair would have acknowledged Ivy as a doable protege, much like the best way she ‘helped’ Jenny.
5 Jenny and Blair
Jenny and Blair had a complicated relationship. Jenny each hated Blair and wished to be her, whereas Blair noticed her as both an amusement, an annoyance, or – in the long run – an acceptable successor.
If Blair hadn’t been quite so hard on Jenny, and if Jenny had been either less underhanded or even more devious, they might have had an fascinating, if fraught, friendship, kind of like an much more sophisticated model of Blair and Serena.
4 Scott and the Humphreys
Scott wasn’t on the present for lengthy, which is a disgrace, contemplating simply how fascinating his relationships with the principle forged might’ve been. Because the illegitimate son of Lily Van Der Woodsen, Serena’s mom, and Rufus Humphrey, Dan’s father, Scott had a major connection to a number of members of the Higher East Facet.
We do see him briefly work together with all of his organic household, however it’s the final time he seems within the sequence. He had a reference to Dan and Rufus over the inventive arts – admiring Dan’s writing and having some pure musical capability of his personal – and will have been a task mannequin and secure particular person for Jenny to open up to if she’d stayed on as an everyday character.
3 Scott and the Van Der Woodsens
Whereas the concentrate on Scott is extra closely tied to the Humphreys, that simply makes the missed alternatives with the Van Der Woodsens much more disappointing. Serena and Eric have a brother they by no means knew about, and there’s by no means a lot point out of how they take the information, or what relationship they’ve with him.
Each Serena and Eric might have benefited from an outdoor help system, particularly somebody who shares their DNA however not their upbringing. Scott might have helped them actually find out how tousled some components of the Higher East Facet are, and perhaps even finally helped them to disengage from it.
2 Scott and Actually Everybody
Whereas Chuck knew who Scott Rosson was from pretty early on, the remainder of the gang was kind of saved at midnight (besides Vanessa). Nate and Blair might have had a chance to be actual associates for Eric, Jenny, Dan, and Serena upon the revelation, and it could have been fascinating to see if and the way Scott was in a position to be introduced into the Higher East Facet fold.
Whereas he and Chuck doubtless would by no means be destined to be greatest associates, it could have been enjoyable to have one other boy nearly as conniving to assist preserve Chuck on his toes.
1 Carter Baizen and Ben Donovan
Unhealthy boys pairing up is at all times enjoyable to look at. As a result of Carter Baizen and Ben Donovan weren’t round in the identical seasons, they by no means had a chance to work together. If they’d, although, they might have discovered they’d lots in widespread – each fascinated by Serena, each with ulterior motives, each making an attempt to get entry to the broader Higher East Facet world.
Their motives had been completely different – a necessity for Carter and revenge for Ben – but when they’d existed on the identical time, they might have had a very daunting bad-guy ‘good cop/unhealthy cop’ association, which might have exponentially improved their particular person success.
