The road for Serena (Blake Lively) this season has been a little bit shaky in both personal and job-related matters. To begin with, the advent of Dair (which she obviously still bugged about) and the lost of her job that she cared about with David Russell, makes her feel a bit powerless. However, we should worry no more because executive producer Josh Safran dished to us that we shall expect a brand new Serena van der Woodsen in the upcoming episodes.
“Serena has been feeling a little powerless this season, whether it’s losing Dan to Blair or losing her job that she cared about with David O. Russell, and then the Spectator. She’s going to [try to] gain her power back and be the Serena van der Woodsen she once was. Whether that means transitioning out of being an ‘It Girl’ and being a creator of ‘It Girls,’ or whether that means stealing her spotlight back, you’ll have to watch and see.”
And what about all of that drama between Ivy and the vdWs? Safran said only that Ivy will continue her run as Most Reviled on the UES: “At this point, she feels like she has nothing left to prove because [the vdWs are not] going to accept her anyway, so she she’s just going to look out for herself.”
