The Gossip Girl Season Finale: You Know I Loved It XOXO

*Caution: this post contains spoilers* So did you watch? Did you watch the series finale of Gossip Girl last night? Because even if you gave up on the show 2 seasons ago (because it got almost too ridiculously boring to keep watching) you had to tune in to see who Gossip Girl really was, right? And it was so worth it too, no? I've watched Gossip Girl from the beginning (I've also read all the books) and even after suffering through the last two very painfully boring seasons I sat on the edge of my seat last night as I watched, for the last time, my favorite Upper East Siders do what they do best -- be fabulous. This season has been a bit all over the place -- with Chuck still trying to take down his dad, with Ivy still trying to take down Lily, with Dan still trying to take down all of the Upper East Side so he could somehow fit in, with Blair trying to find her own niche in the design industry, with Nate trying to run a business without turning into his father and with Serena and her daddy issues constantly searching for love in all the wrong places, but in the end none of that mattered because the writers gave the fans exactly what they wanted with the series finale. In the end, diehard fans just really wanted a happy ending, and the writers delivered. Not only did Chuck and Blair and Serena and Dan finally end up together, but we found out who Gossip Girl was and it was awesome! Of course Dan was Gossip Girl -- it made perfect sense. And it made perfect sense that he revealed it in a expose that he delivered to Nate ensuring the success of Nate's paper. How perfect that the writers showed us all of our favorite past and present characters reading the blast from The Spectator revealing that it was Lonely Boy all along that was the brains behind Gossip Girl. I loved seeing the reactions of Vanessa and Lola and Juliette and all of the past characters as they read Dan's big reveal, as well as seeing the Jenny and Eric and the rest of the families back together for Dan and Serena's wedding. So while I found the entire final season of Gossip Girl boring at best, the series finale delivered the goods. And is it just me, or can you not wait for a Georgina Sparks/Jack Bass spin off series? You know I loved it. XOXO //

Gossip Girl Season 6 Finale: Top 5 Best Moments

The more we think about the Gossip Girl series finale, the better we feel about it. Sure, we still wish that "New York, I Love You XOXO" was weeks away and that the identity of Gossip Girl remained a secret for a little bit longer. But there were some truly wonderful moments in a rather solid finale for a season that honestly hasn’t been great. Here are our five favorites. 5. Ivy gets played Ivy (Kaylee DeFer) sucks, guys. Like, literally. She makes the men who date her lose their... //

GOSSIP GIRL Series Finale: The Big Reveal and Other Thoughts

[This post contains spoilers for the series finale of GOSSIP GIRL.] For years, the GOSSIP GIRL voice-over taunted us with "And who am I? That’s one secret I’ll never tell," but in Monday’s series finale, the titular life-ruiner gossip gal was finally unmasked. Or, make that gossip guy: Dan Humphrey revealed he had actually been [...] //

Gossip Girl Series Finale Recap: I Guess That Means It’s All Over Now

In the Forever Finale of what was once known as The Greatest Show of Our Time, sparks were ignited, love rekindled, rivalries ceased, punches became hugs. It was an emotional, heartwarming finish to a show that has managed to tug at our heartstrings over the past six years even as it has stretched the boundaries of acceptable plotting and accessorizing. The final scene, in which Serena marries the show’s eponymous narrator, was both satisfying and poignant. What happens next, we will never know. Because no one should go through such an emotional experience alone, we joined up with our former co-recapper Chris Rovzar, now of, to discuss the big questions posed by the Final Episode of the Greatest Show of Our Time, such as: "What does ‘one of us’ even mean, anyway?"

Gossip Girl Reveals Gossip Girl

Amid other major revelations on last night's Gossip Girl finale, the show finally told us who was behind all those life-altering text-blasts. So now we know who Gossip Girl is! And it's Dan. Womp, womp. That … fits, ish. Mr. Lonely Boy himself turned out to be the cruel chronicler of our UES darlings, and it makes a certain amount of sense: Who else but he would be so enamored with his own chronic patheticness? As for who else it could have been, Georgina was too obvious, Serena too victimized, Blair too busy scheming with other ways to destroy people, Nate too dumb, Chuck not interested enough in others' lives, and anyone else would have felt like a cop-out. (Except Dorota. Even Bloomberg believes.) The final recap will be up later today, but until then, uh, XOXO. //

Lisa Loeb Crashes the ‘Gossip Girl’ Finale

The series "Gossip Girl" came to a close last night--and, perhaps improbably, in a flash forward scene taking place five years in the future, the Rufus Humphrey character seemingly ended up with Lisa Loeb, a pop singer whose biggest hit came in the 90s. //

Gossip Girl Season 6 Review “New York, I Love You XOXO” – Who Am I?

Well, Gossipers, we’ve come to the end. For many of you, it’s been six long years. For me, only two, but it’s sometimes felt like longer, especially when I’ve been called certain names for having certain opinions on certain characters. And I know there are people out there who will be supremely unhappy with "New York, I Love You XOXO," the series finale of  Gossip Girl , but there’s a much larger contingent who will be quite  content. Of course, everyone should be feeling a teensy bit robbed. Did we really need an hour-long retrospective, when that time might have been better served on, you know, the plot? How many of us really wanted to see Bart Bass shoved into a hole in the ground, just to make sure he really  is dead this time? Alas, we never got that satisfaction. Read More... //

Gossip Girl Series Finale: Where Does Everyone End Up?

Gossip Girl Season 6, Episode 10 "New York, I Love You XOXO" is over, guys. And so is the whole series. Over. It’s all over. IT’S ALL OVER. (Okay, but secretly? Can they just start over with another cast. And Ed Westwick?) So, while we think about the years of our time we spent watching the show (Okay, it was like 5,324 minutes... or so...), it’s nice to have something more tangible to measure the show’s progress and endpoints. Blair (Leighton Meester) finally got her... //

So ... Who Is 'Gossip Girl'?

Gossip Girl was finally revealed on the CW series' finale , after six seasons and countless twists. There were plenty of flashbacks on the "Gossip Girl" finale , most of which focused on Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley) and his first encounters with Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively). In the present time, viewers saw Dan decide to give the final chapter of his book to Nate Archibald (Chace Crawford) and "The Spectator," which revealed who Gossip Girl was. Then, using "Gossip Girl's" signature voiceover, viewers heard Dan's voice say: "I wasn't born into this world, maybe I could write myself into it ... And when Serena came back from boarding school, I wrote my first post about me. Lonely boy, the outsider. The underdog. I might've been a joke, but at least people were talking about me."
