Gossip Girl Mega-Reveal: Thumbs Up or Down?

by at . Comments

By now, we've all seen Gossip Girl's 100th episode (or read about it by choice), right?

Just in case anyone hasn't, let us issue one giant Gossip Girl spoiler alert right here.

We good? Okay. Now ... how about that last-second reveal?! What did you think?!

Georgina Sighting!

Obviously, Blair’s emotional and romantic life remains a subject of much debate (see photos from next week for a hint at where her journey is headed), but the big story was the reveal of Gossip Girl herself.

The blogger’s identity has been hotly debated and speculated about for years now, but it took the landmark episode for the producers to unmask the person behind all the texts, blasts, and video revelations.

Georgina Sparks.

Yes, the well-known foil of Dan (having his fake baby), Serena (that whole killing thing) and Blair (too many incidents to list) has apparently been the person tormenting them from day one on the UES.

Shocked? Psyched? Disappointed? Still waiting for the other shoe to drop?

Some aren't buying it, even referring to her as “new” Gossip Girl (noting the site's demise after the e-mail hacking scandal), or positing that she's an impostor, a G.G. apprentice or some combination thereof.

On one hand, it makes perfect sense. G has a close enough connection to the action without being a direct part of it - save for her annual shindig - that she could fulfill this role, with the perfect personalty.

Who else takes such delight in taking people down, blending sarcastic snark and humor with almost sociopathic emotional detachment? One can easily imagine Georgina as Gossip Girl, come to think of it.

The logistical problem is that given all she's been though - rehab, Bible camp, Belarus, etc. - how could she pull that off without being unmasked? Or at all? There are potentially a thousand plot holes there.

Of course, that could also be spun the other way. Since the Season 2 finale, Gossip Girl has not been the point of the show until recently. She's been the narrator, sure, but involved directly in fewer scandals.

Like Georgina, she shows up intermittently and stirs the pot, while remaining on the periphery and out of the fray most of the time. Perhaps she could pull off being G.G., with the aid of others or even solo.

We are all Gossip Girl, she once cryptically pointed out.

Michelle Trachtenberg is apparently sticking around this time, so it looks like if nothing else, there's plenty more G.G. to come this spring. Are you buying it, though? Share your comments and vote below:

You tell us: Georgina as Gossip Girl ...

CHARLIE "LOLA" RHODES SOUNDS LIKE GOSSIP GIRL. the minute I heard her speak, i thought she was gossip girl and still am hoping she is

lola is the real gossip girl, thats why she's suddenly made herself visible to nate and why she's taunting him for not remembering her, she's interested in him both as editor of the spectator and as a hot guy, yum. i don't know why georgina appeared to be shown as gg but there is no way its her

Avatar

hmm I guess it was G so no it wasn't a big surprise... I like that it was G and I hope it stays that way.. I would like to see how she got the reigns of kirsten bell tho... I think Diana or lola might have something else to do with it tho..

Please let it be Georgie! That (apart from Dair scenes, Seena's dream and Derena scenes) was one of the only things I actually liked about the episode, which was over-hyped in my opinion. However, I'm thrilled to have Georgina as Gossip Girl, specially if it means we'll get more Michelle on screen.

Nathaniel Archibald as Gossip Girl? Hmm... now that is an interesting twist. If this is even the slightest bit true, it certainly would make his character more appealing and less boring than he's been portrayed all this time. It is a good cover: after all, if it is Nate, who would think to go after him if everyone is looking for a girl? Given the extensive resources he has, not to mention connections as a Vanderbilt, knowing Serena all his life, it would make an interesting arc that Nate has lacked for quite some time. Dan did write him as "half" a character, maybe the other is GG? Whoever first mentioned the idea, Kudos to you! My boat is whether it's Nate, Georgina, or Lola, I'm still hoping for a KB appearance!

to be honest i was a little disappointed by this reveal. even though it would cause major plot holes, i liked the idea that gossip girl could be one of the main characters. although theres a good chance its not even her. which is what i'll be hoping for because i enjoy the mystery.

Also, Gossip Girl as states several times during both season 1 and 2 that she attends the events that she blogs about. If Georgina showed up to any of the season 1 parties, Serena would have spotted her right away. Georgina is NOT the orginal Gossip Girl but it will be interesting to see what she does with her new powers

It's not Georgina. She may have posted the new video and taken over, but she wasn't the original. In season one when Blair defeats Georgina by calling her parents, why would Georgina (if she was gossip girl) smugly blog about being defeated by Blair? Gossip Girl tore Georgina a new one back then and it sounded like she also championed Blair as the baddest bitch around. Sigh, season one. I miss those days, back when Blair would never let a lispy prince blackmail her.
