At least Sage is not around 5 years later. And nobody ever discovered what William did with Ivy...OK...

Defo One of the worst endings to a show which as been so great. So many twists and turns, but this ending seems like they wrapped it up very quickly. As a viewer im sitting with a very sad feeling, actually bummed quite out having spent so much time on a show with such a bad roundoff ending.

Fact is, it was obvious they would put Dan as GG in the end. The build-up was easy to spot, and that made it even worse. I've always been a fan of Josh Schwartz, but this is defo one of the worst endings of a series i've ever seen.

My sister always said it was Dan, but I didn't thunk so, I thought it would end up being a character always on the fringes or something. Now it's over I kind of wish they never revealed who Gossip Girl was. There would have been something more bitter sweet with the characters realising on their own the blog didn't matter and growing up or with GG closing her site forever. I'm glad Chair and Sedan ended up together and I love that for once Nate is standing on his own feet. One pairing I didn't like was William and Lily, I would have preferred her to be independent. Even though the writing got pretty bad after season 2 I'll miss GG, it will always be the show that introduced me to epic love and New York city...

@ Loeb: As per Savage E! online interview, they pretty much decided from the start it would be Dan. It's a bit of an open answer that she gives, because she says "we never really entertained any other ideas of who GG was", but I guess this mean someone (in the writing staff, perhaps?) entertained other ideas. She tells an anecdote of that famous shot of Dan in from of a laptop watching the GG site with the GG voiceover in the background, as per her they had to re-edit that because the focus group totally guessed Dan was GG.

From E! online: Savage mentioned that Bart was psychotic, at least the writers were aware of this.

Someone in the NY magazine recap had said Vanessa's kitchen looked like one from the 70's. Savage said it is the kitchen set for the Carrie Diaries and it's the 80's.

Apparently the DS wedding should have been leaked, but it was, which kinda amusses me, because it shows how sucky they were at hidding certain things, although I agree with her that they did pull out to keep the cameos a secret.

In the NY magazine recap people were wondering about Serena's career. Based on Savage response, it looks she ends up like Lily, a socialite. It sucks, she could have been a writer or have a movie career, the show hinted at that more than once.

Well the fact that Dan was Gossip Girl might have worked if they had planned it from the beginning and let Penn Badgley in it. But like this they did this last minute and with full of plot holes. Sorry the revelation didn't really hooked me up. Dan sounds more like a creepy stalker than a boy falling in love with a girl and try to get into her wolrd in order to be with her.

@ sasha: I know. And that's was is bothering me with every hour that passes.

@ Gaby: I agree. I remember that back then there was already speculation about the possibility of Dan being GG based mostly on this scene. The videotape footage shown in 5x24 also increased this possibility, many said that those were his hands. So it's likely they made Penn film that, or some guy similar to him.

Whathappened

The writers didn't have Dan planned as GG for seasons 1-4, if you think otherwise you're fucking sheep. These clowns came up with it last minute and pretending they knew it all along.
- Why did Dan ask himself for advice numerous times?
- Why did he cause MISERY for himself numerous times?
- Why did he PURPOSELY try to sabotage his relationship as GG with Serena numerous times if he loved her so much
He doesn't seem like someone on the outside wanting to get in, wanting Serena to notice him, he seems psychologically messed.

@Gabby yes I agree. I remember serena n Nate blaming GG n Dan saying that it wasn't like she was driving the car n making them crash as if he was defending GG.
