So, while we think about the years of our time we spent watching the show (Okay, it was like 5,324 minutes... or so...), it’s nice to have something more tangible to measure the show’s progress and endpoints.
Blair (Leighton Meester) finally got her happy ending with Chuck (Ed Westwick), and the two were last seen with their darling son, Henry, Blair still bossing around the plebes as she plotted her way to the top.
Serena (Blake Lively) and Dan (Penn Badgley) had a lovely wedding in the finale, getting over that whole “Dan is Gossip Girl” and “sorry I called you a dumb blonde in print” issues that could have kept them apart. Serena wore a beautiful gold and white wedding dress, and Dan refused to cut his hair.
Although we’re not sure who Nate (Chace Crawford) keeps at his side on the Spectator jet he’s flying around in these days, we have no doubt the candidate list is as endless as it was during his six years on GG.
Lily (Kelly Rutherford) seems to have gotten back with Serena’s dad, William van der Woodsen, who only had to sleep with and manipulate Ivy (Kaylee DeFer) in order to get to their happy-again-ever-after.
As for the rest of the gang? Jenny (Taylor Momsen) is tall and gangly (and apparently a Waldorf designer — way to bury your hatchet, ladies) and could really use some time in the sun so she stops looking like a Twilight extra, Eric (Connor Paolo) should wear less black because he looks like a tiny-shouldered Johnny Cash (don’t they have gyms in the Hamptons?), and we’re gratified to see that Dorota (Zuzanna Szadkowski) is taking care of another generation of Waldorfs.
