As depressing as it is, Gossip Girl is coming to a quick end. The renewal of the sixth season called for only a 10 episode run to end in December 2012. It breaks my heart knowing the show I have watched since high school and have learned many lessons from (believe it or not) will be gone. The last six years has made me feel like I’m a part of their exclusive Upper East Side clique full of drama, revenge and heartbreak but also the most durable friendships that can get through anything. Here are my favorite 10 Gossip Girl moments from seasons 1-5. Comment with your favorite below!
A lot of skepticism was felt when Gossip Girl first announced its transformation from a book into a TV series. These doubts were quickly squashed in season 1 when we saw Blair Waldorf’s (Leighton Meester) boyfriend, Nate Archibald (Chase Crawford), hook up with her best friend, Serena Van der Woodsen (Blake Lively) after a wedding. They kept it their own personal dirty secret until Nate let it out to Blair. This was a flashback but it is incredibly sexy. Ever since this moment, Nate has had a thing for S. This set the series off for an interesting dynamic.
In this scene, Constance Billard’s queen bee sheds her “royal” image when she lets loose in Chuck’s (Ed Westwick) new burlesque club, The Victrola. Clean off of her break up with Nate, her dance was enough to make Chuck weak in the knees and lead to Blair finally losing her V-card to him in the back of a limo. What a game changer.
8. Serena Accidentally Kills Someone
Georgina Sparks (Michelle Trachtenberg), also known as the sworn enemy of the Upper East Siders, comes back from S’s troubled past to blackmail her. With the threat of revealing a huge secret that could destroy her, Serena opts to come clean to her friends: on a drug fueled night, Georgina tried to tape Serena and an acquaintance having sex. However, what they caught on film was Pete dying of an overdose. No wonder why Serena escaped to boarding school!
