Watson's character, a young entrepreneur named Steven Spence, will serve as a love interest for troubled Upper West Side It Girl Serena (Blake Lively). Steven's introduction comes after "S" spent much of Season 5 pining over Lonely Boy, aka Dan (Penn Badgley), despite the fact that he was so clearly in love with "B" (Leighton Meester).

Since departing 7th Heaven, Watson, 38, has starred in the drama What About Brian and the comedy Samantha Who?

The final season of Gossip Girl premieres on Monday, Oct. 8 at 9/8c on The CW.

Do you think Watson will make a good match for Serena?
