Saying farewell to 'Gossip Girl'

Saying farewell to 'Gossip Girl'

Will Chuck and Blair finally be happy?

I'll admit it: I'm a Gossip Girl fan. I've been a fan for over a year, after I spent a weekend sick in bed and watched season one on Netflix. Since then, I've caught up of course, thanks to some late night Lunesta fiesta TV watching sessions. I'm thankful the CW does a thorough summary of the previous episode, because half the time I can't remember what I watched. Hey, sue me, I have insomnia!

Sadly, Gossip Girl is coming to an end. Next week's series finale, entitled "New York, I Love You XOXO," should be epic. I expect great things, after hanging in with this Upper East Side gang for so long. Namely, I expect Chuck Bass and Blair Waldorf to get married and live happily ever after. Or else.

Let's hear it Gossip Girl fans: Do you think the series finale will end well for our pair of silver spoon, star-crossed lovers? After all this time and all this turmoil, will Blair and Chuck finally say their "I dos" and merge their formidable empires? And while I'm asking, if they *do* get hitched, will they live at the Empire?

Here's one thing I do know, and it's a huge spoiler, so stop reading now if you don't want to know. Don't say I didn't warn you. Apparently, we're finally going to find out the identity of the real Gossip Girl. What if it's really Kristen Bell?! Kidding. Kind of. Nate has all the evidence to out GG. Who do we think it is? Is it a character we already know, or someone we've not yet met?

Another tidbit that I'm excited about: Many of the former Gossip Girl stars are rumored to be in the series finale, including Connor Paolo (Eric van der Woodsen) and Taylor Momsen (Jenny "Little J" Humprhey).

The Gossip Girl series finale (snif) airs next Monday, December 17, 2012, at 8 p.m. EST. Until then, XOXO.
