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?

Well I'm not a Dair fan and I won't be tuning in for S6. I have no interest in watching a rehash of S1. I expect people, even fictional characters, to grown and evolve and the writers have failed to deliver. To everyone excited about S6 I hope it's all you want it to be. Ciao!

You're wrong. The series was started with Serena and Dan. Just today I watched a season 1. Serena arrives at the railway station, Dan has seen her, and GG commented: Dan could not believe his eyes that the love of his life is back ... Later, Serena meets Nate and tells him: I did not came back for you! We all know that Serena returned for her brother Eric. There was no relationship between Serena and Nate before season 3, it's a fact!

I agree with you Rinny, GG started with Serena and Nate.

Dair fans like Chrissy who didn't get the ending they want will expectedly react in such losery way: hate campaign against Season 6. I pity these Dair shippers.

Perhaps GG's campaign against Blair and Serena changed Nate's attitude. He surely didn't expect that; in fact, nobody did, certainly not me.

Not interested in season 6. This show hss regressed, become blatantly predictable and the writers are so stretched for ideas they're writing characters into walls and repeating their first season? Sorry, not something I'm interested in. Good luck to everyone who wants to see S6.

i really hope that what they wrote about serena not being a main role it's not true. i think couples have to end as they began and i don't hate any caracter, i just know that everybody is neant to be i mea chuck and blair dan and serena(though they are mad right now) tufua and lily though the stupid mistake they've done. dan and serena are so obvious i mean in every season they had something. nate and serena were only in season 3 and pilot and we know blair loves chuck so dair was kind of stupid.

You're wrong how began a series GG. The series was started with Serena and Dan, and not with Serena and Nate! Serena and Nate have been friends since they know for themselves, but the affair between them was only in half of season 3. Serena and Dan have been a couple for almost 4 whole seasons, and from two of them it all began. The affair between Serena and Dan, was the first, and only in 6 or 7 episode of 1 season occurs relationship between Chuck and Blair. Which guy Serena will eventually be is another question. As the story went, the most honest in the end is that Serena would be with Dan. But as the 5 season ended with a total rupture between Serena and Dan, unfortunately it would not happen. Maybe Serena will be with Nate or with the other guy!

SEASON 6 -THE SHOW STARTED BECAUSE SERENA AND NATE! SO THEY MUST END TOGETHER TOO! CHUCK AND BLAIR ARE MADE TO BE TOGETHER, EVEN THE CRAZIEST THING CAN'T SEPARATE THEM. DAN AND VANESSA ARE BEST FRIENDS SINCE THEY'RE LITTLE, ISN'T IT OBVIOUS IF THEY END UP LATER? GOSH IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN SERENATE, CHAIR AND DANESSA!!

I love Lola - she brings some much needed flavor and class to the show. It has needed some new blood. Ella is a talented actress!

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.
