It's happening tonight!! Can't you feel the first class decadence in the air?? The rich joie de vivre as the snooty cloud blows by??
We seriously can't wait any longer at all. It's killing us that we have to.
ON THE THEME OF SEASON SIX
It was really important to go back to those primary relationships the show is built upon: our characters and the primary themes. There was a line in the pilot between Nate and Chuck where they wonder if they're just going to turn into their parents. This year, it was really important to address that with all the characters. We really focused on our characters and bringing everybody into the adult world.
ON SERENA'S ABILITY TO MATURE
In terms of Serena, we wanted to give her a love interest that was not someone we had seen with her yet. [Steven] is an adult and the question becomes, is Serena ready to become an adult herself?
ON CHAIR VS DAIR
I'm a Chair fan, but I was a big proponent of Dair because I actually feel that if Blair and Serena are our main characters, then Chuck and Dan are two sides of Blair. So the question becomes, which side is she going to be? Ultimately that's one of her mythological questions. I love Dan, he's one of my favorite characters, and I think you'll be very happy with his journey this season.
I'm not sure it’s done on all three of their accounts. Blair and Chuck have made this decision, but there are openings for Dan, or at least Dan thinks there might be! We'll see if he's really over [her]. The great thing about that is they know where their hearts lie, but as in real life, that sometimes makes things more difficult to have faith in.
ON THE WRITERS' PURPOSE
I really do feel like when we sat down to talk about this season, for the writers, it was very clear what had brought all the characters to where they are and what we wanted to do in order to take them where they were going. Even though this season is short, we still have a lot of twists and turns. But unlike other years, those twists and turns are within our characters, so I think that we tried not to go back and undo the things that we had built, we tried to build on them.
ON THE REVEAL OF GOSSIP GIRL
Kristen Bell is Gossip Girl's voice, but you'll have to wait and see what we did. Or what we didn't do. Last season we shifted people in trying to find her or taking over her site. Gossip Girl the person has really grown and changed with Gossip Girl the show and this year, she is as much a character as she has ever been.
TONIGHT. 9/8c. THE CW. SEE YOU THERRRRE!!! XOXO!!!
