Six seasons before its conclusion, the writers, and producers of the show knew that Chuck and Blair would end up together! It had been planned that way since the beginning.
Although there was enough history between Blair and Serena for them to be best friends on the show and sometimes even enemies, IRL the real actors Blake and Leighton didn’t talk that much.
When asked who they thought Gossip Girl was, an audience who attended a test screening all answered Dan Humphrey! A scene where he was shown typing during a voiceover had been a dead giveaway!
