Last night marked the Season 5 finale of Gossip Girl. Rumors loomed that this might be GG's last, but (thankfully) the show was renewed for its sixth and final season. It's welcome news, but we still have to wait until the Fall for the next episode. In this summer sign-off for Gossip Girl's penultimate season, we're still picking up the pieces from the shocking return of Bart Bass (Robert John Burke) which applies new tensions with Chuck (Ed Westwick), not to mention Rufus (Matthew Settle) and Lily's (Kelly Rutherford) fizzling marriage.
Serena (Blake Lively) was usurped as the acting Gossip Girl, and in the hustled change of hands instigated by Nate (Chace Crawford) and Lola (Ella Rae Peck), scarring pages of Blair's (Leighton Meester) personal diary found their way into GG's (and subsequently, the entire Interwebz) hands. Blair's intimate musings reveal to the Gossip Girl readers damaging tidbits about Blair's mother, the NYC restaurant community, and trouble in paradise with Lover Boy/Lonely Boy Dan (Penn Badgley). The episode marks the return of many other things along with Bart and Gossip Girl, but if you haven't caught up yet, we won't spoil the rest for you. Check back here weekly for our fashion recap!
