It's amazing to think that after two and a half seasons of Gossip Girl, the show could still amaze us and bring its A+ game with an episode like "The Debarted," but it did.
From Chuck's inner turmoil to Serena's drama, Lily's letter and Jenny's dealings, the episode - written by co-executive producer Stephanie Savage - truly had everything.
Let's review the main plot points and why they were so awesome last night - and it's a good thing they were, because it looks like the show will be on hiatus 'til March ...
Dan tells Vanessa he loves her. She pays little attention and chalks it up to his emotions running wild after Serena's accident (more on that later). To be continued.
Eric tries to take down Jenny but you can't eff with an effer, E! Trying to portray her as evil and stage a revolt doesn't work when J buys her minions "it" handbags. »

The Us-based 'Parents Television Council' have issued a statement to the CW Network regarding an upcoming episode of the drama series Gossip Girl. "...By now you must be aware of reports in 'Entertainment Weekly' and elsewhere that the November 9th episode of the teen-targeted drama Gossip Girl will feature major characters in a sexual threesome. To include a story line like this on a program that is expressly targeted to impressionable teenagers is reckless and irresponsible. I appeal to your highest sense of decency, respect and common sense in urging you to preempt this episode. Television is profoundly influential in the lives of children, especially when it comes to sexual decision making - it has even been described by one researcher as a "sexual super-peer" - signifying television's power to amplify, many times over, the peer-pressure teens are already feeling to engage in high-risk sexual behaviors. When television portrays attractive, »
Ed Westwick is not allowed to swear—at least not on the record. "I swore too much in Rolling Stone," he cheerfully explains after biting back a particularly lusty f-bomb. "So I'm not supposed to swear in interviews any more."This refreshingly honest admission is par for the course when it comes to Westwick. With his impish grin and thoroughly forthright demeanor, the actor exudes the effortless sort of charm plenty of his contemporaries would kill for. Unlike so many young thespians, he doesn't seem overly concerned with crafting a crowd-pleasing persona or image. He'd rather immerse himself in the work, have fun with it, and ultimately let it speak for itself.This seems to be working out pretty well so far. As tortured, manipulative mini-mogul Chuck Bass, Westwick has become the dramatic linchpin—and wildly popular fan favorite—on the CW hit series "Gossip Girl." With his silky line delivery and smoldering stares, »

Chicago – It’s senior year for the spoiled socialites of “Gossip Girl” as the second season of the hit CW show finds the characters applying for college amid scandals, new romances (and old ones), and shifting alliances. It’s just another crazy year in the life of “Gossip Girl: The Complete Second Season,” now available on DVD in a gorgeous box set from Warner Brothers.
DVD Rating: 3.0/5.0 The interesting thing about “Gossip Girl,” outside of the show’s paparazzi-adored young cast of beauties and the plots themselves, is how much the show has redefined what qualifies as a hit in the ’00s and even more in the ’10s. The show taps into the next generation of TV watchers, the ones who are just as likely to watch something on their iPod as on their cable box.
Gossip Girl: The Complete Second Season was released on DVD on August 18th, »

People.com spoke with Gossip Girl executive producer Stephanie Savage about what the masses can expect when the series returns to the CW on September 14. While those of us who regularly ravage the web for spoilers (oh, what a sad but oddly satisfying shared existence we lead...) have heard most of these half-hints before, it doesn't hurt to speculate on what Steph is leaving out of her so-called "scoop."
The most interesting secrets Savage might be hinting at? I could be way off-base, but it sounds like Serena is runway- rather than Brown-bound, while Blair's headed for a character and wardrobe over... underhaul. »
Sonic Youth have reportedly been confirmed to appear on an episode of Gossip Girl's forthcoming third season. Executive producer of the Us drama Stephanie Savage revealed that the band have agreed to perform on episode five of the show's new season - where they are expected to play an acoustic version of track 'Starpower'. "Sonic Youth [are] one of my favourite bands," Savage told Entertainment Weekly. "And last year I was doing my regular Gossip Girl Google search, it came up in some blog about a Sonic Youth show that Thurston [Moore] was playing 'Psychic Hearts' and Gossip Girl was playing on a screen in the background. And I was like, 'Whaaaat? (sic) Oh my God'. (more) »

TV phenomenon "Gossip Girl" is headed into its third season this fall, and on the fifth episode the show will feature a guest spot from a very special musical guest. Veteran New York indie kingpins Sonic Youth will appear as themselves on the show and play an acoustic rendition of the song "Starpower," which comes from their 1986 album Evol. "Gossip Girl" executive producer Stephanie Savage told Entertainment Weekly that when she heard that guitarist Thurston Moore had used footage from the show during a concert, she jumped at the chance to get one of her favorite acts on the CW hit. "I hope they’re not making fun of us! I hope it was a cool, edgy homage! And it turned out that it was — tongue in cheek for sure, but definitely with love, and that they were fans of the show," she said. She wouldn't divulge the specifics of the performance, »

Well, it's official. The Gossip Girl spin off, Valley Girl/Lily, is dead in the water with no hope of revival any time soon. According to Variety, Dawn Ostroff, the CW's entertainment president, has stated that the concept of spinning right round back to the 80s is no longer in the running for a mid-season pickup. She also dismissed the idea of "The It Girl" - the spin off series from the original Gossip Girl book series - being picked up as a spin off but made it very clear that the network is open to other spin off approaches. "If [executive producers] Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage would be open to it, of course we'd be open to it. There is a spin off actually of the book series which is called "The It Girl", and we've explored that with them. It's been harder to find how you make that a world that's well-rounded enough for us, because »

We all super jazzed about the upcoming Gossip Girl spinoff but have you heard who young Lily and Rufus might be chilln' with in 1980's Los Angeles? None other than The Oc's KiKi and Jimmy Cooper! Yup, it could really happen according to Josh Schwartz and producing partner Stephanie Savage. Remember before KiKi shacked up with Sandy she and Jimmy Cooper had a fling that lasted all throughout their young lives. The Oc invaded our television back in 2003 and we all became obsessed with the quick witted drama that featured the privileged lives of Orange County, California. Seth Cohen made geek chic, Ryan Atwood made Dylan McKay look good and the love triangles between the parents had us spinning for days. Sadly, The Oc lost steam when Cam Gigandent's character accidentally killed Marissa and the show was never the same again. We love that Lily and Rufus will finally be »
