Who is Gossip Girl? Share Your Theories!

by at . Comments

The synopsis for the December 17 Gossip Girl series finale has been released by the CW. On that date, we will finally learn the "endgame" for Chair and the rest of the characters ... as well as who GG really is.

The series swan song, "New York, I Love You XOXO," begins with the cast members and executive producers bidding farewell to the Upper East Side in a look back at the show’s many unforgettable moments.

Then, in the second half of the two-hour event, "in a fashionable farewell to remember, our favorite Upper East Siders join forces for one last soiree, and the shocking identity of Gossip Girl is finally revealed."

Who is she/he? That question will finally be answered after six seasons. According to E! Online, "we found out who Gossip Girl is and we have. So. Many. Emotions. It's great. And even kind of makes sense."

What do you make of that? The options are certainly abundant, especially with guest stars aplenty back for the much-anticipated sendoff. We are all Gossip Girl ... but at the same time, there can be only one.

Zoran- I agree. Also whoever Gossip Girl is knew that Dan liked Serena from the beginning like 10/08/2005 type of beginning. And there were way too many hits out on his sister on Gossip Girl and on his half brother lol (him and serena break up again b/c of it). There is no way he's gossip girl if they make him GG then the show totally does not make sense.

Your answer does not make sense, because if you carefully watched episode 6x03, you would see that Dan says to Nate that he wants to become a powerful and he publishes the chapters of his friends and relatives! Dan wants to be as powerful as Chuck, because it is the only chapter written positively about Chuck, and that only makes sense! And another thing, since it is obvious that you hate Dan, for whom you cheer, maybe it's for Serena and Nate?

All you forget that in 2012 there are now smart phones, but then in 2007 there were no phones, such as today, so Dan was unable to obtain information from Melani91 and to resend it away and not to see Jenny and Rufus, who were with him! Third, Dan is part of the UES, as Serena introduced him, that said Dan to her when were got out his first book! Fourth, what was new Dan wrote now, that he did not do in the first book – he put real names and nothing more, everything else is pretty much the same! On the other hand, your question is in place - Why Dan is doing that? You think Dan wants to destroy Serena and the others, but this is not the answer to your question!

@lina / liana, No, Dan is not GG, you are under the impression of episode 6x08 and is why you did come to that conclusion! It is true that in episode 5x22 Dan was in a taxi in front of the house where others had, but you can not see anywhere that Dan entered the house! As it can not tell exactly who is the person that takes Serena’s laptop, a camera that recording was under bad angle, the person is masked so that we do not know whether it is male or female! Second, it is not true that Dan first saw Serena when she returned to NYC! Serena first saw by Melani91 and immediately sent a message to GG! After that Dan sees Serena standing, and you hear the voice of GG that says - Dan sees that love of his life is back (Serena), only if she knew who he is? Simply Dan and Serena were in the same place at the same time! If Dan was GG, to whom was then Melani91 sent a message? All you forget that in 2012 there are now smart phones, but then in 2007 there were no phones, such as today, so Dan was unable to obtain information from Melani91 and to resend it away and not to see Jenny and Rufus, who were with him!

OH YEAH HIGH FIVE @lina I HAVE ALWAYS KNEW DAN WAS GOSSIP GIRL ALWAYS HAVE ALWAYS WILL... Your theories aren't theories a they are the truth HEYYY!!!! It makes a lot of sense go watch gossip girl at the very beginning and you will realized Dan is gossip girl.From that video Diana send to nate clearly it's a guy ... I always have thought dan was gossip girl when he first created inside ... He knew everything about everyone and he wrote this book on the perfect time ... And I reckon his FINAL CHAPATER is that he says sorry to everyone but also reveling his gossip girl ... He did say he had a plan all along :3

So now it comes to my FINAL REASON as to why GG is Dan!! Well now at the end of this season Dan is writing a tell all book and releasing chapters every week. He does not seem ashamed to do it and to betray his friends and family. Why would you think he would do it? Well hes probably done with Gossip Girl and wants to end it by telling everyone's dirty secrets in a book!!! Theres a chapter in every episode and what if the last chapter is about him? about him being GG? And that since he's GG, hes is going to end it! And if Dan is GG(which obviously he is) its even more obvious that he became friends with Serena, Nate and Blair for the sole purpose of destroying them.

Yeah I know they show a girl taking a pic of Serena but the story came out too fast, It could've been Dan's writing with the girl's picture. Also in the pilot episode Dan happens to be in the right place at the right time. Also another clue is Dan's nickname "lonely boy" Dan clearly shows that he is in fact a lonely boy and even refrences it sometimes because of the way he cant fit into the world of the Upper East Side. Also, do you guys remember the time when Serena was Gossip Girl? Not many knew about the laptop besides those in Blairs house. And at that time Blair was dating Dan. Actually Dorota tells Dan about Serenas laptop situation which then lead to Gossip Girl Iming Serena that she knows its her.

Also, Gossip Girl can not be Nate because he was texting Gossip Girl the whole time. Season 5 episode 22 showed us a lot and Im thinking the writers put Bart resurrection in this episode to throw us off a little. Season 5 episode 22 only had 6 characters(other than bart and diana) in that party: Nate, Chuck, Blair ,Lola, Serena and Dan. Nate, Chuck and Blair are out of the picture and so is Lola because shes not in the last episode. And it sure cant be Serena. The person who take the laptop only had to be on person DAN!( remember dan followed chuck and blair to the party and didnt go in until some time). My guess is that Dan was waiting for the right moment.Next we have Nelly Yuki, obviously shes not Gossip Girl because shes simply not in the last episode(or 8 or 9 for that matter). Now lets get on to how Dan is gossip girl. For starters Dan was the first one to see Serena when she came home. Gossip Girl new of Serena's coming before her own mother. Yeah I know they show a girl taking a pic of Serena but the story came out too fast, It could've been Dan's writing with the girl's picture. Also in the pilot episode Dan happens to be in the right place at the right time.

DAN IS GOSSIP GIRL!!! i have clues as to why he is and the other are not. First lets start off with Dorota,If you go onto Imdb, you will see that she is not even in the finale episode. The only people in the finale are: Serena, Blair, Dan, Nate, Jenny, Juliet, Eric, Rufus, Lily, Ivy and Chuck. So Dorota is out of the picture. Eric is next, he isn't Gossip Girl because at the beginning of season one he was in a facility, with was highly monitored and probably didnt have access to the internet. He was also away at college. Jenny also was away at college in the UK and if you go back to episode 22 it is clear that whoever gossip girl is, was at that EXCLUSIVE party( the episode where chuck finds his father and gossip girl gets his/hers laptop back). Okay so now we have Blair Nate and Chuck and back to Season 5 Episode 22 you see that all three of them are too busy to find what Diana is hiding. And according to the surveillance footage, you see Chuck and Blair together at ALL times. Also, Gossip Girl can not be Nate because he was texting Gossip Girl the whole time. Season 5 episode 22 showed us a lot and Im thinking the writers put Bart resurrection in this episode to throw us off a little. Season 5 episode 22 only had 6 characters(other than bart and diana) in that party: Nate, Chuck, Blair ,Lola, Serena and Dan. Nate, Chuck and Blair are out of the picture and so is Lola because shes not in the last episode. And it sure cant be Serena.

And if Dan is GG(which obviously he is) its even more obvious that he became friends with Serena, Nate and Blair for the sole purpose of destroying them. Why else would he publish chapters about them if he truly cared about them? Maybe Serena was once an obsession, and created Gossip Girl to know her every move. But then it turnt into hatred and possibly distgust and he just wants to get rid of everything. And in true GG fashion, get rid of everything with a bang. If GG is going down, so is everyone is. If its a series finale it has to be good!!
