Oh Gossip Girl. We're going to miss you so hard.
In honor of the repeats airing for the first time on the Style network, and the final season airing this fall on the CW (click here for your first, sexy taste of Gossip Girl Season 6), TV Fanatic is taking a look back.
Previously, we reflected on Gossip Girl Season 1, the year that started it all. Today, we ask you to share your favorite memories of the show's second season, during which all sorts of crazy drama went down.
Gossip Girl Season 2 was senior year for beloved Upper East Siders Serena, Blair, Chuck, Nate and Dan, but applying for college was only a small part of the story. This is GG, after all. Studying is an afterthought.
Whereas Season 1 introduced us to the characters and romances we came to love (or love to hate), Season 2 sought to test them with a never-ending slew of scandals, nemeses, obstacles and shifting alliances.
Gossip Girl killed off Bart (we thought) in the winter finale, while Blair was wooed by Lord Marcus, Dan by Rachel and Serena by Aaron and con man Gabriel, whose co-conspirator Poppy will be back in Season 6 (as will Bart).
Lily and Rufus took the first steps toward getting together, Nate struggled to distance himself from his family (a battle that persists to this day), Lil' J grew up fast on the UES and Vanessa was also on the show.
We first met Cyrus and Jack, and Georgina returned to stir up trouble (when is that not true).
With a few '80s exceptions, such as the spinoff that wasn't, the humor, drama and sexual tension that made the show a breakout hit were present and then some in Season 2. Some episodes were particularly memorable.
What's your best memory of Gossip Girl Season 2? Favorite episode? Favorite moment?
Share it with us in the comment section below as we look back at the series we love and gear up for its swan song (see TV Fanatic's Gossip Girl spoilers for all the latest) beginning October 8!
