Gossip Girl Season 6 Spoilers: Takedowns, Breakdowns and Sex Tapes, Oh My!

by at . Comments

Sex tapes. Heartbreak. Backstabbing. Revenge.

Several relationships unraveled, while one was rekindled as Gossip Girl Season 5 came to a close Monday, ending a turbulent chapter and setting the table for its upcoming swan song with a number of surprising plot lines.

Old faces returned and new adversaries were revealed (sort of). Lonely Boy is again an outsider in earnest. A fallen It Girl has taken her darkest turn yet after sabotaging her best friend. A Dark Knight is desperate to prove himself.

Dan Humphrey and Blair Waldorf

The parallels to the show's 2007 pilot were unmistakable.

“Getting ready for Season 6, everybody re-watched the pilot,” executive producer Stephanie Savage told TV Line. “We talked about what our favorite episodes were, some of our favorite dynamics. We’re leaving it all on the floor.

"We really want [the final season] to count and to be really special. The gang that you saw in that final act of 'The Return of the Ring' will be the main players when we come back.”

Additional excerpts and spoilers from Savage's interview below:

On Blair's return to Chuck: “It was Blair coming to declare that she was in it to win it with Chuck and leaving that [relationship's future] as the question of Season 6. We crafted the last act of the episode to set us in a certain direction next year.”

On how dirty Dan plans on playing in his quest for vengeance, with the help of his new ally: “When you call in Georgina Sparks, you’re not looking to [play nice].”

On Serena's downward spiral: “Feeling like she’s lost Blair, lost Dan, she’s all by herself again. It’s going to put her in a pretty precarious situation.”

On the Derena sex tape: “Well, if somebody had a sex tape on their cell phone, and they said they deleted it, but you never really saw that it was deleted…”

On the big "reveal" and Nate's quest to bring down Gossip Girl: “This is something that has larger implications to the franchise beyond just our series … That reveal requires conversations at the highest level.”

How do you see things playing out? Are Chuck and Blair endgame? Will he and Jack dethrone Bart? Can Ivy take down Lily? How low will S go? Has Dan lost his mind? Will the their sex tape hit the Internet?

And will Gossip Girl finally, after half a decade, be unmasked?

I think that lily should have ended up with Rufus because it kind of tied the whole series together i mean William was the one she chose over Rufus at the start for money. But she said when she was about to marry Bart that it wasn't about money because she had enough money so she didn't really need to end up with William. Don't get me wrong it was a great season finale but that one thing kind of put me off. It was like she couldn't really choose between her ex's and even though they were soul mates and that's what made the first couple of seasons because it was like they were in love and in even though Serena and Dan were in love and that's weird and they share a brother it just didn't seem right for them not to be together and I know it's been a couple of years since it aired but I can't get over it and one day I wish they do a spin off of Rufus, lily ,Scott, Eric, Serena and Dan.just there family because it will really tie everything together and make them a realistic family. Keep William in their lives but make rufus her one true love. I also think they didn't really work because at the start they talked about all the memories they had when they were younger than later on it wasnt the same and Bart came back and ruined everything ecspecially with ivy. I think it was good how William came back into their lives just not the way it turned out with him and lily ended up together

It's refreshing that Blair is given her mother's company, With Chuck having (or had) the Bass Industries, Nate, being the journalist and Serena having a Hollywood job, it's time for Blair to take on a more mature role as the head of Waldorf company.

Gossip Girl Quotes

And who am I? That's one secret I'll never tell ... You know you love me. XOXO, Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl

Blair: Fashion is the most powerful art there is. It's movement, design and architecture all in one. It shows the world who we are and who we'd like to be. Just like your scarf suggests that you'd like to sell used cars.
Dan: Vanessa gave me this scarf.
