@ Marco, you're wrong Dan is not GG! Dan was also sent tips to GG, you forgot from 1 season in 15 or 16 episode, Dan sent a tip to GG that the Asher was gay, and he acted as Jennys boyfriend! And later, Dan was sent tips to GG. I'm not sure that this is a gay wedding, more like a renewal of vows Lily and Bart. But if it is gay marriage, then certainly between Eric and some of his boyfriends. But why in this wedding is a new actor, Stephen Spence, if the wedding takes place in 1 episode, and it is called Gone Maybe Gone? Except in this wedding Serena meets Stephen Spence! As for the slap, Dan is definitely deserved it and probably got it because he came uninvited to the wedding!

Oh wow I'm a bit retarded haha lol the slap is already mentioned hahaha and to the person who thinks Dan is gossip girl ... I AGREE WITH YOU 100% ... It made sense to me at the end of season 4 with the book like , Dan has to be gossip girl as one he doesn't really send anything in plus it started with Serena who he was madly in love with .. And like his the outsider who hates all of them so it makes sense.... But idk now .. Sometimes gossip girl makes me feel crap because of their storyline in the second half wrecks it but then when it comes back its always good :3 until the second half hahaha

@Zoran The wedding is a gay wedding... Which doesn't make any sense because the only gay person we know is Eric and his not bad well not that we know of and isn't Sernea might to be in hiding and her friends are looking for her :? Unless the wedding is just near the end of the espideo and they found her before then it makes sense ... Also guys did you hear? Serena slaps Dan before the wedding :3 Hahahaha

I'm not sure that marriage is between Blair and Chuck, because they are not dressed for this eventuality. But the marriage between Serena and Stephen is a big surprise, because when and where she met him, when she went to train with another boy (drug dealer)? If, however, is marriage between Serena and Stephen, I'm not sure that this happens in 1 episode!
@ pari, thanks for the link!

@ Elisa, thanks to new information, I did not knew for a slap! But if you remember this is not the first slap that Dan got from Serena. In season 2 Dan had sex with Professor, Serena finds out about it from Blair, and at a party hosted by Nate's grandfather, Serena fired a slap to Dan! As for the wedding, it looks like the renewal of vows between Lily and Bart. However, the picture shows that the new actor, Stephen Spence, in addition to Serena on the set, and the only she wearing a dress that looks like a wedding dress. Something more, the dress worn by Serena is similar to the one she wore at the end of 1 season, when the wedding was between Lily and Bart. Perhaps it is the marriage between Stephen and Serena and Dan fell not invited to the wedding and got a slap in the face that he deserves! I'm not sure that marriage is between Blair and Chuck, because they are not dressed for this eventuality. But the marriage between Serena and Stephen is a big surprise, because when and where she met him, when she went to train with another boy (drug dealer)? If, however, is marriage between Serena and Stephen, I'm not sure that this happens in 1 episode! @ pari, thanks for the link!

Dan is Gossip Girl. And Serena shouldn't end up with him. It's like sleeping with the enemy. SERENATE all the way!

Well, not so bad as idea. The boy is not young but I think this is the right choice for Serena. Her caracter has a lot of problem and I liked Serena with Ben or his cousin (I don't remember the name). She needs an older boyfriend. Relationship with Dan or Nate are completely ended and Barry Watson with Serena could be a good storyline to complete the story.

as long as dan and serena do not end up together i'm fine with everything
