Gossip Girl Notes from the Pilot

at . Comments

It was hard to miss the sex scene between Serena (Blake Lively) and Nate (Chace Crawford) in the pilot episode of Gossip Girl.

At least go in the coat room or something, guys.

Anyway, here are a couple of tidbits/inside jokes from the show many viewers may not have been aware of:

  • The Constance Billard School for Girls is based on The Nightingale-Bamford School on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Cecily von Ziegesar, the author of the Gossip Girl books, in which the series is based on, attended this private school.
  • As Dan rushes to catch his ride to school, we see the side of the bus; it has an advertisement with a logo that reads Smallville. This, of course, is another show on The CW.
