It’s a good thing the CW decided to end “Gossip Girl” this Fall. The show has definitely lost its luster and watercooler buzz. I was definitely going through the motions watching it the past couple seasons and was about to break up with Serena and company, had it gone for much longer. With a shortened season consisting of only ten episodes, I’m okay devoting a few more hours to see how it all ends.
If the final ten episodes are anything like the Season 5 finale, they should provide for an interesting watch. I really appreciated how the finale harkened back to the show’s first season. It seemed all the characters took a couple of step backwards. I especially loved the scene where Serena was back on the train with Peter Bjorn and John’s “Young Folks” playing in the background, much like it did in the pilot episode.
The network recently gave us our first glimpse on what is in store for fans of the show for its swan song. The first half of the clip features a lot of footage from the show’s history, leading up to possible spoilers. Could the show’s leading ladies finally find true love. The promo seems to indicate that is a strong possibility.
Blair and Chuck seem to be on the road to a happily ever after ending. Blair is seen saying “I’m all in”, with Chuck promptly replying, “And my bet’s on us.” Serena, on her part, is seen cozying up to Barry Watson (7th Heaven) who joins the cast as entrepreneur Steven Spence.
