The Goodbye Gossip Girl

I have never loved a series as much as I loved Gossip Girl. But lets be clear, I mean Season 1 and 2 pushing to 3 maybe. And then as far as I’m concerned it ended then. Over. Forever. Nothing else happened. Okay? Chair happily ever after. Lets just forget the rest. 

GG has been dying a very slow and painful death for the past few seasons and had some very questionable storylines that part of me is relived that it’s over with. But I’m also slightly devastated that there will be no more GG, its bitter sweet. But lets look back on the good times. The Best of Gossip Girl…

Final Thoughts
Gossip Girl was strongest in its early seasons but I thought that the finale worked well. Especially the last 15 minutes. It felt like everything came together in such a wonderful way. Even though I had always pegged xxx (I don’t want to ruin it!) as potentially Gossip Girl I was still gobsmacked by it. And that’s what originally made the show so good, the OMG moments. I can’t wait to re-watch it all from the start.

You know I loved you Gossip Girl,
