It is finally autumn, and with the cold weather come the rumors of the CW’s “Gossip Girl.” The sixth and final season premiered Monday and left no questions answered and a lot of eyes rolling. Although this first episode drained some excitement for its viewers, it will still be one of the top rated shows of the fall, getting more dramatic and racy with every episode.
The fifth season left viewers on edge as Daniel Humphrey paired up with Georgina to write a book to tell the dirty secrets of the infamous Upper-East Siders. The question is, will he go through with it? As these questions drop, so do jaws as the first scene opens with Blair and Chuck being intimate. We think they will finally be together despite all the obstacles only to have the world come crashing down as they make a pact to be together forever…just not yet.
Remember Serena? Her mother doesn’t either. Lily does not even notice that her daughter has been gone all summer after she returns home from a vacation to find Serena’s things unpacked. The majority of the episode is spent trying to locate Serena with Georgina trying to sabotage her in hopes of an epic ending for Dan’s new book. Serena is found only after Nate trades in a big secret to Gossip Girl to find her.
With last season ending in a nasty fight between Blair and Serena, viewers wondered if the best friends would reunite. Blair thinks they will be as she rushes to save her friend from trouble. Once they are reconnected, Blair makes an uncharacteristic apology that Serena halfheartedly accepts.
Blair questions her pact with Chuck after Dan says, “You think you two have an epic love, but all you have are excuses.” She later confronts Chuck while riding home after a night of Serena-hunting. The most heartmelting moment stars Chuck as he tells Blair that he would give up everything for her. He then pulls out a necklace and a ring that he was to propose with in a previous season. This foreshadows what we all hope to be a promise of a bright and rather large future between two individuals who never had a chance to be together.
The drama and the intensity comes at twhe end of the episode as Dan enters his Brooklyn home to find his father entwined with Ivy (Charlie Rhodes). Ivy has been scheming with the real Charlie, but about what exactly, and why involve poor Rufus?
With only nine episodes remaining, “Gossip Girl” promises its usual intensity and promiscuity that comes along with the Upper-East Siders. What will happen with our modern day Romeo and Juliet: Chuck and Blair? Will Serena tell her new lover the truth about her past? Will Rufus find out that Ivy is tricking him? As Gossip Girl says, that’s one secret I’ll never tell.
