Gossip Girl Season 6 Spoilers: Are Blair and Dan Over for Good?
As relieved as we all were to see Blair (Leighton Meester) make that final decision at the end of Gossip Girl’s fabulous Season 5 finale last week (the decision she’s – cough cough – been supposed to make for years, duhh, choosing the person we've hoped she would choose for years), we couldn’t help but feel like poor lil’ Dan (Penn Badgley) kinda got the short end of the stick. There was no final scene for Dair! There was no discussion of B’s choice! For a couple that took forever to get it together, and then were all about talking about their feelings, it seemed like too easy of a way for all of it to end…
But, sadly, if you're hoping for one last heart-to-heart or elevator makeout sesh, it’s time to steel yourself for some disappointment. TVLine is reporting – and very matter-of-factly, at that – that “Dair is done.”
Cue: The rightful (and expected) reign of Chair in the final season. But, what's next for our dear Lonely Boy.
Executive producer Josh Schwartz tells TVLine the final season will focus on “core dynamics and the core characters,” which presumably would mean both Blair and Dan – though perhaps not so friendly-like (espesh after Dan’s forthcoming tell-all… part two).
EP Stephanie Savage says of the final season, “There are definitely some things we want to see in the series finale, and we think we have a great opportunity to tell those final stories and honor our characters and honor our fans. We’re really excited for this final run.”
