This article focuses on the interactions between Gwen and Lindsay.



Gwen has had to put up with Lindsay's lack of intelligence many times in the series.

Despite Lindsay initially being a friend and ally of Gwen's worst enemy, Heather, the two show occasional signs of being friends, especially after Lindsay's friendship with Heather dissolves. Although Gwen is annoyed by Lindsay's stupidity, she holds no personal grudge against her for it and thinks of her as a friend. Lindsay seems to like Gwen because of her pranks and dislike towards Heather.

Lindsay tries to ward Gwen away from their cabin (unsuccessfully) in Not Quite Famous.

Heather suspects Gwen is up to something, and sends Lindsay to watch over her secretly. Lindsay is clearly not very interested in the job, finding it boring. Afterwards, she gives Heather some time to allow her to find Gwen's diary in the cabin. As Gwen is about to return to the cabin after swimming, Lindsay tries to hold her off until Heather finds the diary. She tries to intimidate Gwen by saying she has martial arts training, but an intense glare from Gwen scares Lindsay into letting her enter the cabin, just after Heather finds and pocketed Gwen's diary.

That's Off the Chain!

Gwen supports Lindsay by glaring at Heather along with the others, when finding out Heather was using Lindsay.
