Savage tells TV Line that the episode ends "with a huge cliffhanger - perhaps our biggest cliffhanger ever." Now we already know about Blair (Leighton Meester) shacking up with Dan (Penn Badgley). And we also know about the car accident. Plus Charlie/Ivy's cover has been sort of blown. So what more could it be?
The show's other Ep Josh Safran adds further intrigue, "It is both emotional and personal. It will have you wondering what happens next, for sure."
If it's not that the expectant mother loses the baby/ends up in the hospital, we're struggling for other ideas. Perhaps Chuck and Blair finally decide they're right for each other? So many choices. »
Gossip Girl Coming Back for Season 6?
While the cast and crew of the CW’s Gossip Girl were out partying it up at Cipriani on Wall Street, there was no fear over a season renewal. All the executive producers seemed to be completely confident their show would get a sixth season, despite a decline in the ratings. If I were in their shoes I wouldn’t be terribly concerned either. These days every show’s rating are going down. “We’ve had no one saying to us, ‘Wrap it up. This is the last season.’ So we’re not [treating the season finale] as such,” said one of the EPs Joshua Safran.
President of Warner Bros. Television, Peter Roth shared his thoughts with EW.com, saying he hopes Gossip Girl will be around for another year, if not more. Which is a good thing, as Stephanie Savage (another Ep) hinted strongly that the fifth »

Two more episodes of Gossip Girl remain in 2011.
Next Monday and the week after will bring us to 97 overall. With the royal wedding / 100th episode spectacular set for January 30, that means four more episodes to go before the event we're all waiting for.
Will there be some kind of time jump between now and then? Based on some of the rumors going around about the December 5 episode, don’t be surprised if the time warp happens then, TV Line reports.
“It [ends] you with a huge cliffhanger ... perhaps our biggest cliffhanger ever,” executive producer Stephanie Savage teased at the show’s 100th episode bash over the weekend.
Added fellow executive producer Josh Safran of the midseason finale, "Riding in Town Cars With Boys": “It is both emotional and personal. It will have you wondering what happens next, for sure.”
How far do you think the show will jump ahead, if at all, »

Spotted: The cast and crew of Gossip Girl partying it up at Cipriani on Wall Street in New York in honor of the show’s 100th episode, which airs Jan. 30.

The well-heeled denizens of Gossip Girl occupied Wall Street — namely, Cipriani Club 55 — on Saturday night to fete the CW series’ 100th episode, airing Jan. 30. Seeing as the landmark hour centers around Blair’s wedding to Prince Louis, the cast was on strict orders to, ironically, not gossip about what happens, so “I can’t tell you” and “I’m not allowed to say” were frequent refrains. Even so, TVLine gleaned enough teasey tidbits to paint a provocative wedding picture….

Paramount Pictures has gained the rights to Tana French‘s mystery novel The Likeness, which will be adapted by TV writer and producer Stephanie Savage. According to Deadline, Savage will also produce the film with long time collaborator and Fake Empire partner Josh Schwartz.

Paramount Pictures has picked up the feature rights to two Tana French novels for adaptation. In the Woods, French’s 2008 debut novel, is part police procedural and part psychological thriller and charts the investigation into the murder of a 12-year-old girl in Dublin, Ireland. The sequel, The Likeness, features the same detective, Cassie Maddox, investigating the death of a young woman who is a dead ringer for Cassie herself, allowing the detective to assume the woman’s identity as a grad student at Trinity College. The Likeness was acquired for adaptation by Stephanie Savage (Gossip Girl). She will produce with Fake Empire partner Josh Schwartz. As reported by Deadline, the duo purchased the book rights through their discretionary fund at Paramount. Fake Empire has set up five projects thus far, with its first film Fun Size to be released late next year. Hit the jump for synopses for both books. »

If you are in the UK or like me have friends in the UK then you may have heard of a quirky show by the name of Misfits. Not to be confused with our Misfits of Science where Courtney Cox got her start, but actually somewhat similar. In the UK version, a group of teenagers, while doing community service for a variety of bad acts, get struck by lightning and get superpowers reflective of their greatest fears. It has been described as “superheroes meet Skins” if you’ve seen that particular UK show.
It’s extremely popular in the UK, and on Hulu in the Us, so apparently the time has come to try a Us remake. Enter Josh Schwartz, co-creator of Chuck, writer-producer of Gossip Girl and Hart of Dixie, and his Fake Empire, the Warner Bros. TV-based production company Schwartz runs with partner Stephanie Savage. According to Vulture, »

"The O.C. " and "Chuck" creator Josh Schwartz and his producing partner Stephanie Savage have scored the remake rights to the BAFTA-award winning British sci-fi drama series "Misfits" reports Vulture.
The story revolves around a group of working-class teens who find themselves endowed with superpowers following an electrical storm.
The show is known for mixing a familiar "Heroes"-esque premise with "Buffy"-style wit and "Skins"-level realistic depiction of teenage behaviour (ie. plenty of swearing & nudity).
Schwartz and show creator Howard Overman are teaming to write the U.S. version, no network is yet attached. The third season of the original kicks off later this month in the UK.
The question becomes will this suffer the fate of many UK-to-us show translations which, even if they pull in decent critical notices, rarely last a full season. »
