Noticed this dialogue from Serena during the Finale Promo: "You have the power to reveal Gossip Girl's identity all this time."

Here's my guess who is Gossip Girl:

----It's Georgina!----

Why?

1) The story how she had Gossip Girl's laptop on the 100th episode was not anymore explained. Probably there's no story to tell there as she's always been Gossip Girl.
2) She mysteriously disappears, most probably to update her blog.
3) She's never been a subject of GG.
4) Dan probably knows its Georgina all the time she's spending time with her.
5) The smile on Georgina's face on the promo probably saying my job here is over.

I agree with you. It feels like a big serving of just desserts for Bart. Since he came back, he did nothing but moan about how Chuck isn't a real man because he has feelings but, in that moment, the only thing that could possibly save him was Chuck's mercy for his father... Looks like Chuck just passed the Bart Bass Diploma for 'how to become a real man'.

(Hopefully the sarcasm here is clear but, for the record, I do think that Bart's ideas about what defines a 'man' is incredibly warped and everything Chuck said to him on that rooftop was right)

@ToBe, Of course not, but I thought you were being sarcastic, or maybe you forgot relationship of Dan and Georgina from season 3, and nothing more! And my commentary about this episode it will be, take time!
@Fatin, Again calling me for no reason, and then they were wrong when I answer to them! You do your job and I'll my - you continue to hate the way I defend Serena and Dan, and I'll defend Serena and Dan more and more!

@Em I see what you mean. Chuck had a few seconds to make a choice, and after everything Bart had said to him in the previous moments, he couldn't have done anything differently. It goes without saying that he comes out of all this (and is indeed) the better man, since he didn't kill Bart (or anyone else, for that matter); he just didn't save him. I just thought that all the build-up around Bart's storyline, when it was all leading to his death, was, as you say, the easiest option. On the other hand, it did make sense to me that in the end, what didn't save Bart (and made him lose the battle to Chuck) was the thing he always said made Chuck weak: compassion.

"in what paralel universe does a guy write that much shit about the woman he loves and thinks it´s ok to publish it just because in his head his point of view is the universal truth? and in what altern reality does that woman marry him after he had the guts to play with her feelings and publicly call her "nothing" (among other things)? and you think him writing nice and nasty things about Serena simultaneously justifies it? what sane person do that to someone he cares about, let alone love? and for God´s sake what woman with the tiniest bit of self respect marries him? Nooo writers just no!"

so true...

Is anyone really surprised that, in those few seconds Chuck had to make a decision, he didn't try to save him? I'm certainly not. I probably wouldn't feel any compassion for Bart Bass either. (So whilst I get the point that it would have shown Chuck to be the 'better man' if he'd helped Bart, that isn't necessarily how emotions work - people don't always do the right thing).

I think the writers created a bit of a problem for themselves with the Bart storyline in that they made it seem like he was indestructible. He clearly had to go, else no one would get their happy ending, and killing him off was the easiest option. I didn't like that they brought Bart back in the first place so I don't care that he's gone, but I feel like it was a waste of ten episodes just for the sake of OMGs (which were much more NO-MG than OMG anyway). They could have done something else instead. As for whether Chuck should have helped him - probably. Would he have been able to save him - probably not. Does it make Chuck just as bad as Bart that he didn't help? Absolutely not. Bart ruined (and even took) lives. Chuck didn't take Bart's life, he just made no attempt to save it. Bart tried to kill him, threatened his girlfriend, had his best friend thrown in jail, and his stepmother was clearly scared for her own safety (as well as everyone else's). Is anyone really surprised that, in those few seconds Chuck had to make a decision, he didn't try to save him? I'm certainly not. I probably wouldn't feel any compassion for Bart Bass either. (So whilst I get the point that it would have shown Chuck to be the 'better man' if he'd helped Bart, that isn't necessarily how emotions work - people don't always do the right thing).

I think in a way it was the right decision not to save Bart. If Bart lived he would just still keep torturing Chuck and Blair. It was the only way for them to get their happy ending. A man that paid someone mom to stay away and then tell their son that she died is not a good man. Bart had no reason to do what he did so you all need to stop saying Chuck should have save him because Bart was never going to change. Death was fit for Bart!!!

I may have missed the first 20 minutes because I was frosting christmas cookies, but Blair calling Ivy a goat was the best! Not sure of the context, but awesome!
