We can't believe it's finally here!
After six SCANDALOUS years following the lives of Manhattan's elite, the end of Gossip Girl is upon us, and we've been fighting back the tears all day just THINKING about it!
Not to mention the anticipation of FINALLY discovering not only the romantic resolutions of Chuck and Blair or Dan and Serena, but the long-awaited identity of the series' namesake!
WHO could it be?!
Nate's missing bangs?! Katie Cassidy?! Little J?! Dorota?! Our beloved Georgina?!
Gah! Our head is exploding with POSSIBILITIES!
Luckily, executive producer Stephanie Savage has opened up about the creative process behind resolving some of these long-awaited mysteries, so maybe certain perceptive readers can decipher some clues in here:
"When you're thinking about a finale, you go back to the pilot, you think about everybody's series arcs and think what is the premise of the show? In this case, 'Who is Gossip Girl?' is a big part of the show. We had a thought in the back of our minds who Gossip Girl was, but we were never sure if we were going to reveal that. Was it something the audience wanted to know, or would they rather not know? We kept it very open. Then last year, we did a lot of storytelling with Gossip Girl and it felt right that this year, she would be revealed. The actors were really excited and surprised. Everyone has had many theories over the years. I think they liked it."
"When you create a series, you have an idea in the back of your mind where you think everybody is going to end up. But you have to be very open to the road the actors and characters take, which I think we really tried to be on Gossip Girl. In the end, I think I always felt I knew who I wanted to be together. By the time we were at the end of season five, the writers were all united about how we felt everything should end. There are too many things to think about what you would do differently. That's one of the good and bad things about television, you have to keep going and you can't second guess yourself."
And what does she think about a possible reunion episode or MOVIE?!
"It's funny we've never talked about [a movie] seriously until the show was actually ending. We've never had any legitimate conversations about doing a movie until we were saying goodbye. Then we said, 'We'll do a movie, Broadway show or reunion show, right?' Even though we are likely to see each other again it's not like we'll all be working together again, so that's where the fantasy starts."
Aww! Just shows how much this journey together has meant to all of them!
And we couldn't have been more happy to watch along as it all progressed!
Here's hoping we'll get a reunion of sorts at some point in the future!
We'd personally prefer SOONER rather than later!
Until that time, Upper East Siders! XOXO!
