Episode XOXO



"New York, I Love You XOXO" is the series finale of Gossip Girl. The episode serves as the tenth episode of the sixth season and the show's 121st episode overall. Written by Stephanie Savage, and directed by Mark Piznarski, the series finale originally aired on The CW in the United States on December 17, 2012.




Episode XOXO



Gossip Girl follows the lives of a group of young adults coming from a wealthy background. In this final episode, the death of Bart Bass rushes Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick) to marry Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) and the identity of Gossip Girl is revealed. A five-year flash forward takes place and shows the wedding of Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley) to Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively).


The series finale picked up where the previous episode left off, where Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick) and Bart argue on the roof ending with Bart falling off the building. Chuck and Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) leave the scene and hide from the police as Chuck is considered "a person of interest" in the case. Jack Bass (Desmond Harrington), Chuck's uncle, comes to help him and suggests the two get married since spousal privilege prevents a wife from unwillingly testifying against her husband. Chuck thus proposes to Blair who tearfully accepts. Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively) discovers the alternate chapter about her that Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley) wrote and put in her bag before she left for Los Angeles. She reads the chapter and decides to stay in New York to confront Dan. William van der Woodsen (William Baldwin) shows up to support Lily Bass (Kelly Rutherford) and tells Ivy Dickens (Kaylee DeFer) that he used her to get back to Lily.


The episode was written by Stephanie Savage, while Mark Piznarski directed it.[1] On October 31, 2012, TVLine revealed the title of the finale would be "New York, I Love You XOXO".[2] Filming of the episode took place in October 2012 in New York. Some scenes were filmed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art while Blair and Chuck's wedding scene was filmed near the Bethesda Terrace.[3] Featured music included Great Northern's cover of "Bonnie & Clyde",[4] Rihanna's Pon De Replay,[5] Imagine Dragons's "It's Time",[6] Release the Sunbird's cover of Talking Heads' "Road to Nowhere",[5] The Mynabirds' "Body of Work",[5] Florence and the Machine's "You've Got the Love",[5] and The Pretty Reckless' "Kill Me" as closing song.[7]


The episode begins with Bart hanging off the edge of the building, right before he falls. It's shown again him falling, and Blair and Chuck fleeing the scene. Downstairs, Georgina overhears security leaving to deal with an urgent situation. She learns there's a body, and Blair calls her to help get them out of the area. Blair and Chuck are shown to escape in the trunk of Chuck's limo. Meanwhile, Dan sits alone in his new apartment. He texts his editor that he'll be ready to reveal the final chapter after he talks to one person. At the same time, Serena has boarded her flight to Los Angeles and discovers the final chapter Dan slipped into her bag. She stalls the pilot so she can read it. At The Empire, Nate and Sage are looking through his Gossip Girl research. Nate receives a text from Ivy to turn the TV on, and there's coverage of the accident being aired. During so, Lily receives a phone call with startling news. Ivy calls William and tells him he can come back to New York, since Bart is no longer an issue. It's revealed that the dead body was Bart, and the news reporter reports that police are searching for Chuck, as he is a person of interest.


Tyler McCall and Laura Breckenridge, aka the infamous Miss Carr, are back to help unpack an extra juicy episode, The Age of Dissonance. They discuss whether Blair should be forgiven for her past sins, the return of Carter Baizen, and the downward moral spiral of one Rachel Carr.


Happy Valentine's Day aka LOVE DAY!! What a beautiful time to talk about self love. What is it really? Why is it important? And how do you love yourself? I share 4 things you can do while listening to this episode while in your car, at work, or at home, to give yourself the kind of love that truly completes yourself!


I'm hoping that the Constance teachers will get their comeuppance in the near future (and not via Julien's forms of justice, but more in the Law & Order bong, bong sort of way), but for now: Miss Keller complaining about how exhausting it is to write in the voice of Gossip Girl is HIGH camp. Is the number of times she exclaims, "this is working" in this episode meant to convince herself or us that this plan isn't just evil for the sake of evil? 041b061a72
