'Gossip Girl' Episode 3: Is Audrey Hope new Blair Waldorf? Reboot character reminds of original
Fans are finding not just superficial similarities between the two characters
The characters on the 'Gossip Girl' reboot have over the last three episodes started carving out their own identities, which haven't been overshadowed with any similarities or references to the original. But it seems that this week that's about to change as fans are finding plenty of similarities between Audrey (Emily Alyn Lind) in the reboot and Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) from the original.
Not just do the two actors share the same fresh-faced charm, a more classic style, and Blair's famous dry wit but they seem to be finding themselves in similarly complicated romantic situations as well as they have both cheated on their long-term partners. If you're enjoying the 'Gossip Girl' reboot, you probably will also enjoy other teen dramas such as 'Elite' and 'Riverdale'.
Commenting on the similarities between Blair and Audrey especially when it comes to their style of cheating on their partners one fan tweeted, "audrey & blair confessing after hooking up with max & chuck.... MY CHEATERS #GossipGirl "
Others felt however that while there may be several similarities at least physically between the two characters and also their family backgrounds considering both Blair and Audrey's mother are both powerful players in the world of fashion, the comparisons between their affairs are forced. One fan tweeted, "audrey and max having chuck and blair parallels is not the serve y’all think it is #GossipGirl "

Yes for one thing we don't think that Blair would have gone to quite the depths literally that Audrey has on the latest episode to escape her guilt over cheating on boyfriend Aki Menzies (Evan Mock), which had fans stunned. One fan tweeted, "audrey was about to munch on aki’s ass and aki is like “yoooo wtf relax” #GossipGirl "
Another fan tweeted, "Yeah not Audrey going for eating his ass without telling him, it’s obvious she’s kinda guilty cause she doesn’t wanna look him in the eyes. #GossipGirl "

For all the steamy scenes fans think that it's time that the Aki Audrey relationship was called off since the two are clearly not into each other. One fan tweeted, "Audrey and Aki are definitely circling the drain, when will they both just admit they’re in love with Max? #GossipGirl "
