Gossip Girl Season Premiere Synopsis: Together But Apart

by at . Comments

The CW's official synopsis for the Gossip Girl Season 6 premiere has been released, and it confirms what we've pretty much pieced together at this point: Chuck and Blair are back together ... yet not.

Dan is apparently about to drop bombs in his new book, while Nate prepares to take on Gossip Girl, and Serena is MIA, leading the Upper East Siders to track her down (see season premiere photos).

Here's what the press release for "Gone Maybe Gone" teases:

Gossip Girl Gang
  • After a brief encounter abroad, Chuck (Ed Westwick) and Blair (Leighton Meester) make a promise to each other about their relationship, which leaves them once again apart.
  • Dan (Penn Badgley), with some help from an unlikely ally, Georgina (guest star Michelle Trachtenberg), is writing a scathing tell-all book that can only mean trouble.
  • As the sole head of The Spectator, Nate (Chace Crawford) is making his own decisions and is ready to go up against Gossip Girl.
  • As word spreads that Serena (Blake Lively) is missing, the gang bands together to find her and are shocked by what they find.

Interestingly, no mention of Rufus sleeping with anyone.

Robert John Burke, Barry Watson, Andrea Gabriel, and Sofia Black-D’Elia guest star in the episode directed by Mark Piznarski and written by executive producers Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz.

How do you think the premiere will set the tone for the final season? Check out the latest Gossip Girl Season 6 trailer for more visuals from the upcoming swan song, which kicks off October 8, and comment below!

As for Serena and Dan they can not be together because of other reasons, and that's a big mistake of producers!

In season 3 and 4 Jenny was the main villain, and now it was the turn to her brother - Dan! Disastrous season 5 could not bring anything good, so it looks like the season 6 to be the same as the previous! If it production does not like that at the end of a series of Serena and Dan are together then they did not have to maintain a story about them in season 4 and 5! If they have already decided that Serena and Dan are not together then they should be completely disassembled as they did in season 3! In 3 and 4 season we watched showdown Jenny against NJBC, and now at the end of season 6 will strive showdown Dan against NJBC! It is a big nonsense and the audience did not wanted to watch that because at the end of such a confrontation all will be losers, although it will be shown as the victory took NJBC! Do not need to look at the conflict between Brooklyn and Manhattan, but to combine them! As for Serena and Dan they can not be together because of other reasons, and that's a big mistake of producers!

an understanding of the show, the characters, and what the fans want is the difference between the Safran seasons and the sure to epic final Savage and Schwartz season

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.
