Day 17 – A scene that makes you happy
Its incredibly hard for ANY gossip girl fan to pick just ONE scene in the several seasons that makes you happy.
But the most recent one would be when Blair finally decides to be with Chuck because she cant deny she loves him. Before she and Louis are married…. when they’re in the getaway car, right before the accident.
Definitely one of the happiest.
From that you can totally tell that I’m not the biggest fan of Blair and Dan but oh well.
Day 16 – A scene that makes you cry/sad
Oh, when I looked at this question, immediately the image of Chuck at his father’s funeral… Bart “Bartholomew” Bass (played by Robert John Burke) that made me sad. Never having seen Chuck so disoriented and so vulnerable it was just so… heartbreaking! TO SAY THE LEAST! I was definitely crying on the inside for this fictitious character and his well acted out alcohol exaggerated suffering and pain.
Day 15 – Your favorite OMG moment
When Georgina (Michelle Trachtenberg) shows up at Dan’s door. WITH A BABY! And says it is his. THAT WAS JUST AN OH FUUUUCK MOMENT! Especially since Serena was on her way back from France… or Italy I think it was and she had decided that she was going to pick Dan over Nate. And voila! That whore-bag shows up and claims baby daddy Dan!
FYI, thank God she was lying! Phew! Can’t imagine how that would have gone down in the whole Rhodes/ Van der Woodson/ Bass/ Humphrey family log! No no, no room for a Sparks, thank you!
Although, to be fair, whenever Georgina Sparks shows up for those guest appearances… it ALWAYS freaks me out and I LITERALLY go “Oh my God!”
Day 14 – Something you hate about Gossip Girl
Hate is a strong word. But I definitely don’t like that pretty much everyone has either liked, made out with or actually gotten with (whether intentionally/ sober or not)
Serena’s been with Dan and Nate.
Blair started with Nate, moved on to Chuck and even almost had a small thing with Dan which well, never went further than 2 kisses. But still, they’re all best friends and the only reason why Serena and Chuck didn’t get it on yet (although Chuck DID try at the beginning of season 01) is because they are step-siblings. THANK GOD FOR THAT!
Even jenny got in on the action, she was with Nate at some point and then she had that whole one night stand with Chuck (which ruined any form of a relationship with Blair). Again, only reason why she couldn’t get with Dan was because they are brother and sister!
Vanessa was in love with Dan forever and then they started dating. Then she slept with Chuck and then she was dating Nate for a really long time.
Then there’s Raina Thorpe who was around for less than one season, initially she was screwing Chuck and then she started dating Nate! Wow.
Yup. Well, I guess all this confusion and random-ness and fickle heart matters add to what makes Gossip Girl so intriguing.
Day 13 – A couple you want to happen
Blair and Chuck!
They are so perfect together. They are literally the King and Queen of the Upper East Side. (I always thought they’d end up together… you know, the show just has to go on. I mean pretty much half the shows fan base watches to know whats happening with Chuck and Blair, (the other half watch because they wanna know who Serena ends up with) so if they end up together, shows gonna pretty much lose a lotta customers. But the whole thing about Blair getting engaged to that damn Prince Louis. Very inconvenient I must say!A fairy-tale ending that she HAS always wanted but still so inconvenient.
I have a feeling Chuck’s gonna bust up the wedding or Blair’s gonna probably be a runaway bride *fingers crossed* — can’t wait for the new season xxx
The season finale, where Chuck and Blair just have a night to themselves before they move their separate ways was one of my favourite moments on Gossip Girl. When they gate crash the Bar Mitzvah
Day 12 – Your favorite secondary character
Georgina Sparks! (Played by Michelle Trachtenberg)
Firstly, having seen Michelle Trachtenbery in many previous roles that were girly and sweet and innocent and virginal. It is surprising to see her as the bad ass, druggy, one night stand enjoying, trouble-maker. And she plays the role of Georgina Sparks beautifully. Although she isn’t in many episodes but does have that odd guest star moment, she makes every moment of her screen time, worthwhile! I know I look forward to it!
Loved her in her last appearance on the show. Season 6 finale, part 01.
Where she randomly appears at a gala dinner and she begs Serena, Dan and Vanessa to let her “in on the plot” Haha! Comical! Absolutely love how she doesn’t care about anything or anyone besides messing with people.
“I think that it’s really fun. It’s always fun to have Georgina around. She justs stirs the pot in a major way. She sort of threads through all the major stories […] sort of like a witness until she injects herself. And of course, returning to Constance, you can’t return without Georgina.[…] So a lot of things are in play and a lot of things are happening […], since we’ve never done a two-parter before, we wanted to load the gun with as many bullets as possible.”

Day 11 – Your least favorite episode
“The Last Tango, Then Paris”
The season 3 finale.
Well, I can’t say I have a least favourite episode in terms of it being a crap episode… but I do have an episode that I disliked because it pretty much was the SINGLE thing that completely ruined Chuck’s chances with Blair. It was that one thing that pushed aside all other forgiveness that had been passed between them in the previous episodes and completely pushed their relationship into being nothing.
The episode where a sad Chuck, thinking Blair didn’t love him makes that ONE mistake with Jenny Humphrey.
And after finding out that Blair did still love him, he tried to make amends. The audience believes that Jenny understands how much Chuck loves Blair and sneaks away silently.
But then you have it! She tells Dan (her brother) that Chuck was the one who (excuse the language) “popped her cherry” and voila! A sock to the jaw later and stupid Jenny weeping in a corner, you have Blair completely lost and Chuck having lost her.
Hated this episode because of that. It was a shame. And honestly, Jenny is just one of those kids who ruins everything. Literally, for EVERYONE.
Day 10 – Your favorite episode
Blair Waldorf Must Pie! this episode takes place during thanksgiving and is just one of my favourites.
Dan invites Serena and her family to spend thanksgiving at his place not knowing about Lily and his dad’s lil’ romantic past (to put it lightly) and Blair is just trying to bake that damn pie for her dad and then gets to know he isn’t coming… and then there is that whole recap thing from the thanksgiving from a year ago when Serena was drunk of her ass, Nate and Blair were together and her parents hadn’t gotten a divorce and her dad was still straight. It’s hilarious and just so touching and it kinda gives you a little insight into the friendships the cast of GG have within the series.
And of course the tradition of thanksgiving fries for the Van der Woodson’s was formed during this episode.
Loved it! X
Day 9 – Your least favorite season
NONE! Omg… I would’ve picked this season… I mean, where was the overly dramatic moments and the crazy moments… and the moments of suspense??? AND HERE IT IS!
Gossip Girl is just epic. Undoubtedly epic. Right when you think everything is simmering down with Blair being with Prince Louis and Chuck just being Chuck, Nate being with Raina and well Charlie’s insanity just wasn’t insane enough… things just explode within the last three episodes! WOW!
Day 8 – Your favorite season
I honestly believe season 2 was when there was definite character development. Serena’s little secret comes out in season 1, Chuck and Blair just ignore their immensely strong feelings for each other, Dan and Serena are like on and off, Nate is sorting out his issues and Vanessa and Georigina are brought on to the show.
But Season 2 is where all the good stuff happens. Serena’s socialite status is boosted. The drama of Bart Bass (Chuck’s dad) dying and that horrible scene where Chuck grieves and eventually changes into the person he is and gives into his feelings for Blair. That unbelievably perfect kiss they have (season finale). I love Season 2. It was unbelievable and all the characters I love played their roles. The good guys and bad guys were clearly defined <3
Day 7 – Your favorite friendship
Vanessa Abrams (Jessica Szohr) and Dan ‘lonely boy’ Humphrey (Penn Badgley), pre Lily and Rufus getting married. I know I keep saying I don’t like Vanessa and that she tries to assimilate when she clearly can not ever be part of the UES but, I do like how she and Dan are together as friends.
The fact that they know each other so well, care for each other and may even attempt to involve themselves in each others business when clearly they shouldn’t, just proves they are indeed best friends.
They, unlike the other characters on the show share tradition of the simplest kind. Eating perogies, having random walks of enlightenment, playing never have I ever in the attempt to make confessions
not to get the other drunk, and just knowing each others ins and outs.
Day 6 – Your least favorite couple
Serena and Ben Donovan (David Call)… that was just kinda weird. I couldn’t see what she saw in him honestly. And he kinda came across as a little bit of a psycho. I have no love for Vanessa and Juliet and they were both with Nate at some point, and they sucked as a couple too. But Ben and Serena can take the freakin bakery on this.
There was no way that Ben was the right one for her and I am just glad he is out of the picture. Completely.
Day 5 – Your favorite couple
Nate (Chase Crawford) and Serena (Blake Lively). I loved it when they were officially together. Their characters were perfect for each other. Not to mention they were just so much fun together. They were a couple, but they were still friends… who had sex… but that’s a different thing! And it’s just so cute.
I like to see couples laugh and make complete idiots out of themselves. It means they’re comfortable with each other.
Day 4 – Your least favorite character
Vanessa Abrams (Jessica Szohr). I know Jenny was a bitch and Juliet was psychotic and Emily is just as crazy, as we have begun to see. But Vanessa pisses me off! She is the kind of girl who doesn’t understand change and keeps fucking up along the way by trying to get involved in things her character is not meant to understand. Everything about her character puts me off. Didn’t like her the moment she came on the show -_-
A person can never be assimilated into a rich man’s world. You can get a girl who was brought up a tom-boy and if she inherently has lady-like qualities within her, she can pick up her duties easy. You can never take the girliest-girl and turn her into a lady if she doesn’t have it in her blood. End of story. Vanessa is the outsider who could never make it in the UES x
