Happy anniversary, Gossip Girl! In honor of The CW series turning 10— the first episode premiered on Sept. 19, 2007— it’s time to revisit some of the most memorable episodes in the show’s history that left you saying “OMFG.”
Starting sipping on a Martini and grab your
minions friends, and get ready to celebrate and re-fall in love with the glamorous lives of Manhattan’s elite.
Someone saw Serena getting off the train at Grand Central... and life was never the same. After running away to boarding school, Serena van der Woodsen returns to the Upper East Side to try and win back her best friend/ queen bee Blair Waldorf and repair her relationship with her family.
Enter lonely boy Dan Humphrey (and his sister Little J), brooding Nate Archibald, bad boy Chuck Bass and an anonymous blogger tracking their every move and it’s only a matter of time before the drama unfolds at the ‘Kiss on the Lips’ party.
Blair’s got moves, and she’s ready to show them to... Chuck. Following a disastrous dinner between the Waldorf’s and Archibald’s, we see Queen B like we never have before when she visits Chuck at his new night club and then in his limo.
Blair Waldorf Must Pie, The Magnificent Archibald’s, The Treasure of Serena Madre, Gaslit, It’s Really Complicated
Thanksgiving on the Upper East Side = major drama. Highlights from the annual holiday episodes include flashbacks to life on the UES before Serena went to boarding school, Nate’s father being arrested by the FBI and dinner guests exchanging insults and revealing secrets about each other (cue Jason DeRulo’s “Whatcha Say”).
There’s nothing like a party on the Upper East Side— and the debutante ball is no exception. Dan and Serena face their biggest challenge yet, Serena’s grandmother Cece, while Blair tries to juggle Nate and Chuck, and Jenny tries to juggle her family life in Brooklyn and her desire to find her place on the UES.
Woman on the Verge
Blackmail! Cocaine! And murder?! Georgina Sparks (played by Michelle Trachtenberg) just might be the best villain to ever take on S and B over the years, and nothing beats her initial return into Serena’s life just before the first season finale. The non-judging breakfast club rallies together to stand up for Serena and get to the bottom of his messy web Georgina is spinning.
Summer Kind of Wonderful
The group travels to the Hamptons to kick off Season 2 and the drama has higher stakes than ever. Contrary to popular belief, Nate is sleeping with an older/married woman and NOT Serena.
And Dan goes to his first white party to learn the truth the hard way. Plus, who could forget the beginning of Chuck and Blair’s countdown to “I love you?” Three words, eight letters...
