Gossip Girl Season 1: Share Your Favorite Moments!

by at . Comments

Gossip Girl Season One. The year that started it all.

In honor of the repeats airing for the first time on the Style network, and the final season airing this fall on the CW, we're taking a look back at the show that's given us so many memories over the years.

Most of them good!

Look at Victrola

Gossip Girl Season 1 tells the story of Serena's return to the UES following her mysterious disappearance to boarding school in Connecticut, an event the Season 5 finale paid homage to this past May.

It also introduced the soon-to-be-epic courtship of Chuck and Blair, along with scandals, hookups and backstabbing truly worthy of "OMFG" posters, yet plenty of tender moments to balance it out.

Dan and Serena found romance between worlds. Rufus and Lily grew close, forever bonded by a shared past. Little J struggled to fit in. Queen B and her headlines ran the show - and her minions ragged.

  • First Date
  • All Over Each Other

Gossip Girl was designated by New York Magazine as the "Best. Show. Ever." It wasn't a stretch. Edgy yet fun, and cutting-edge with its incorporation of new media, it became a phenomenon.

The humor, drama and sexual tension of this first season made it the ultimate guilty pleasure, no matter which couple you were rooting for or against. We can all agree on that much, right?

What's your best memory of Gossip Girl Season 1? Share it with us below as we look back at the series we love and gear up for its swan song (see TVF's Gossip Girl spoilers for all the latest) October 8!

Whathappened

And oh yes, DERENA! God I loved them so much, broke my heart when they split at the end

Hands down every scene with Blair Waldorf scheming her little headband off. She was a Queen back then

A defining moment: "Spotted: Chuck Bass losing something no one knew he had to begin with - his heart."
Eric's moment of pure awesomeness in "All About My Brother" ("Go ahead and do it").
Blair's (sort of) striptease. Maybe, as Gossip Girl said, you can't keep a bad girl down, but who knew Blair could be bad so bravely?
Serena and Blair making up at the end of "Poison Ivy".
Serena and Blair again, in their impromptu photoshoot at the end of "Bad News Blair".
And again, when Serena persuades Blair not to fly off to Europe in "A Thin Line Between Chuck and Nate".
Blair telling Chuck and Nate "I need your help. We need your help".
Many more.

The Sleepover, the infamous Victor/Victorla, Blair's birthday and The Masked Ball were probably the best episodes of the season! I was sure about the show until I reached those episodes then i was hooked!! The show was witty, smart, fun and sexy to the point where i knew it was a guilty pleasure. I had to show everyone the episodes because they made me feel connected to a world I secretly wanted to be apart of! (I mean come on, Chuck Bass?) When people saw the posters and said the show was too racy for TV, I knew i was going to be hooked to something that was going to be big. Im sad to see Gossip Girl end, and I miss how the show used to be. Season 1 will always be in my heart! Love you Chuck and Blair!!

Gossip Girl Quotes

And who am I? That's one secret I'll never tell ... You know you love me. XOXO, Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl

[to Jenny] That's the thing. You need to be cool to be queen. Anne Boleyn thought only with her heart and she got her head chopped off. So her daughter Elizabeth made a vow never to marry a man. She married a country. Forget boys. Keep your eye on the prize, Jenny Humphrey. You can't make people love you, but you can make them fear you. For what it's worth, you're my Queen. I choose you.
