Spotted: Gentlemen preferring one hot blonde! XOXO!
Get ready, Gossipers! Steadily approaching is the milestone 100th episode of Gossip Girl. For the occasion, there are some MAJOR things planned, like Blair Waldorf's wedding and apparently, this elaborate musical dream sequence. Fans of the show know that executive Josh Safran step outside the Upper East Side into fantasy every once and awhile, usually with Blair living out an Audrey Hepburn movie. While Leighton Meester does look ready for Breakfast at Tiffanys, it's Blake Lively that's got everyone's attention, dressed to perfection as Marilyn Monroe from her infamous Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend number.
Oh, and let's not forget about Dapper Dan and the rest of the boys! So handsome in their suits and sashes! So, how did this all come about? According to Josh, this number has been in the works since he started the show! He explains:
"We just filmed the scene the other day. It's crazy. I wrote it, and it's something I've wanted to do since Season 1. I'm very proud of that moment, and when you see it, you'll know why. It's something we've never done before. From Season 1, I said, 'I want to do this.' But it just wasn't the right time. I've been pushing it for five years, and it finally happened. I can't tell you what it is, but it's the best thing we've ever done. Everyone was so excited, and showed up to play in such a major way. They made it even more than my dreams."
WOW! Way to hype it up just a smidge!
Now, we're liking what we see here for several reasons. First, this might be the first time in a looooong time that the original kids have all been together in the same place at the same time. Granted, it's a dream, but what a way to get the whole gang back together. Second, if you check out the gallery (below) you can see a very telling picture of Serena reaching out for Dan as he makes his way towards Blair. After what we saw from this week's episode, we're thinking Serena might be ready to start things up again with Dan. So…this might actually be Serena's dream! Fun!
But…but…but… we're still holding out for Dair! What about DAIR?! Grr! Frustration station!
Thoughts other Gossip lovers? Does this seem totally out of character for the show or are U digging it?
