There was no twist or shocking reveal. It was really just tying everything together.
It had a hint of rush in there, but because most of the stuff were expected, it didn’t feel too much like it was rushed. It was definitely time for Gossip Girl to go. The writers have made each character go to hell and back and go to hell again.
I’m sad Rufus and Lily didn’t get together. That didn’t make sense to me. Derena already shared a brother. Everybody’s already slept with each other and then some. Why couldn’t they just be together again while Derena happened?
I wanted more Eric and J, but they were gone for so long, it just made sense that they showed up a couple seconds.
Nate Archibald for mayor? Um. That’s just… no. He’s done well for himself, but after all the Natefused years of watching him finally become the competent NY Spectator boss. It just can’t happen.
WOW, Serena’s wedding dress was ugly. It looked really cheap, and I didn’t think it suited Serena’s style besides how it was gold. I think it fit into how Serena had that gold dress when Derena was together back in high school, but they could’ve picked a better dress in the end.
Love how little Henry Bass was wearing a purple shirt and bow tie. Like father, like son.
But where’s Eleanor’s other child with Cyrus?
Finally, Georgina and Jack? Too weird for me.
I wish Dorota’s family was somehow incorporated btw.
And that’s that. I thought I’d be emotional about it, but I’d come into acceptance about everything in Gossip Girl. I wish they pulled a serious feel good plot twist. That Dan WASN’T Gossip Girl. It was just really predictable… He’s been the #1 suspect since season 1 for the exact reasons he pointed out. He was the outsider, the spectator, who didn’t belong. Plus, he’s a freakin’ writer.
Alas! It’s done though. It’ll be odd re-watching old episodes without imagining that it was from the viewpoint of Dan. The best part of the finale was finally having Kristen Bell there. Rachel Bilson was also a nice touch, but Kristen Bell was the best thing to happen in that episode. It was definitely the most shocking part of the episode.
So, finally, goodbye, Gossip Girl.
Time to buy my own messenger bag, move to UES, and write myself into that world, too!
