I must say that I have fallen woefully behind on my Upper East Side shenanigans
Gossip Girl Season 4 (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
But since subscribing to Netflix, I have been womanfully attempting to catch up.
Starting with Season 1, Episode 1, I am now up caught up to Blair’s engagement to the Prince of Monocco.
Since I never watch regaular television any more, I wasn’t even aware that this was to be the last season of Gossip Girl.
So, I was completely blindsided when my friend Jeanette let the beans spill that the series finale revealed that Gossip Girl is…
….wait for it…..
….total spoiler alert here…..

Frankly, I knew it had to be one of the main characters of the show although I didn’t really rule out anyone.
I figured that when it was finally revealed, the writers would have to ignore any and all inconsistencies and plot holes.
What I didn’t like was that Lily and Rufus did not end up together.
And even worse, I hated that Lily ended up with William Van Der Woosen.
But I guess that I will have to get caught up to see what happened there.
Reading comments though, I giggled when one reader suggested that Rufus changes to suit the woman that he is with, which is totally true!
And Lily never really respected him as a man because, like her daughter and Blair, she is actually attracted to men who treat her just a wee bit bad…I mean, um, present a challenge to their strong personalities (yeah, right!).
Other (obvious) spoilers:
Blair and Chuck get married. It was very anticlimactic and I absolutely hated Blair’s dress (I hardly ever liked the clothes they wore on the show anyway.) They have a son but I guess I have to get caught up to find out what happened to Blair and Louie’s baby?!?!
BTW, those two park Blair/Chuck know-it-alls have a vital role in the marriage but where are Blair’s minions??
Georgina’s so-called scheme was lame and was just a rounding up of all of the usual suspects. Yawn.
Flash forward five years and we see Dan and Serena tying the knot (I hated her dress too.) but I would have loved to see how they finally made it to the alter.
Apparently Blair does get a career in fashion (I have no idea what Serena ends up doing).
Lil Jenny Humphry makes a brief appearance with a designer purse that reads J by Waldorf so…..
But she doesn’t get any lines. Lol.
Ivy writes a tell all about duping the rich for their money. I need to get caught up there. I just got to the point where she is being blackmailed by her ex for $500,000.
Let’s see…who’s left…

Oh, yeah, Nate…he ends up running a very successful magazine and they hint that he may be running for Mayor. No girl for him, apparently. They should have put him back with Vanessa…power couple to take on Chuck and Blair. Lol.
Oh, and why wasn’t Scott at the wedding?!?!
My favorite (really, the only part that moved me besides being angry at Lily) was the cameo “I thought is was Dorota” moments from real life celebrities. My fav being the voice of Gossip Girl herself, Veronica Mars alum: Kristen Bell.
No clue the significane of the Rachel chick but I actually squeeled to see Ronnie. Lol. And that wink…too cute….
And, of course, they had to send Gossp Girl to bed with a warning that since there will always be an outsider with a need to be “in”, there will always be a “Gossip Girl”.
