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 serena and nate should be together I've noticed that she dated him the longest of all the guys she dated and what else is there to say about chuck and blair other than they are made for one another

I enjoy all of it, but I really only watch it for Blair and Chuck. I really hope they end season 6 together. They have the most amazing chemistry on screen. In my opinion, Leighton Meester and Ed Westwick are the main talent of this series.

Really want GG to go out with a bang? Bring back Jenny. Make things a bit more interesting.. Tired of the same old Serena vs Blair, Blair chasing after Chuck, Chuck chasing after Blair, Dan being the "loney boy", Serena being a lost cause, Lily being a bad mother.. Nate doing nothing and being boring and irrelevant, Georgina popping out of no where (wow haven't seen that before....) GG was more juicy with Jenny, and a heap more unpredictable. Even if Taylor Momsen is tied up in her music career, bring her back for at least one more episode ! Maybe she could form an ally with this Georgina Sparks and really corrupt everyone. Just sayin' :)

Also I hope the way the book ends has nothing to do with how they make the show end because then all this fighting over chair, Dair, the complicated life of Serena, or who godsip girl reslly is would have been for nothing.

Season 6 being the last season of gossip girl they should have Blair and chuck be together they are obviously meant to be together chuck and Blair are the perfect pair the relationship between them was so real and kind of the only reason I enjoyed watching come on Dair just shouldn't be and Dan should really get a haircut but if Dan were to be with someone I guess it should be Serena but I wouldn't mind him with georgina either. Lily needs to open her eyes why would she want Bart when she has Rufus idk who Nate should be with and the show is better with Jenny and Vanessa gone.

I am rooting for chuck and Blair to get married and have beautiful babies. Their relation has been so real and alive, they've been in love since the start. And common their relationship is so damn fun and romantic. its about time to tie the knot. Dan is a boring judgmental person that needs to be sent to a retirement home. I don't care about anyone else I just want chuck and Blair to end up together soo please please please male it happen!!!!

Blair and Chuck for the win!! I could care less what happens to Serena, all she has ever done is cause problems. Same goes for Jenny, dont really want to see her face again. I feel bad for Dan because I did like Blair and him together, just not as much as Chuck and Blair.

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.
