This episode did not only make no sense whatsoever, it has also managed to ruin any fun in watching gossip girls previous seasons again.

By now it's known that the writers of the show hadn't planned to make Dan gossip girl from the beginning, something that is painfully clear to anyone with the least amount of common sense. They made the mistake of not thinking their storytelling trough and ran into a huge obstacle: how do they reveal Dan as GG and NOT have the finale end in tears and rage? To do so they had to make an annoyingly dumb decision, they had to let all the other characters forgive Dan. So him being gossip girl and ruining pretty much everyone's lives about a million times was justified with some vague excuse that wasn't logical or believable in any way.

So what have we learned from this last episode? Absolutely nothing. I know gossip girl has never been the show to watch if what you are looking for are deep, poetic life lessons, but the thought that none of the characters have grown in any kind of way over a six year period, and that it was absolutely fine that Dan had created a spy-on-your-friends-and-stab-them-in-the-back-to-climb- the-social-ladder atmosphere for generations to come leaves me very disappointed.

It might have worked if it had been planned from the beginning. Yet what bothers me most is that the last episode does not only ruin the finale, but all the previous episodes as well. I will never be able to watch the show again and not look for plot flaws. Not to mention that sweet old lonely boy will now forever be this creepy stalker sociopath in my eyes, instead of simple, cute Dan Humphrey. Who knew all it took for him to finally be part of the elite was to screw them over and over again for six years and reveal he was the evil puppet master all that time?
