10. I had to include Blair's princess wedding to Louis of Monaco. Though it was a loveless occasion, the whole event was just so Blair. From endless sparkles to hundreds of guests, it was most definitely a Waldorf-style matrimony. Unfortunately, the marriage lasted less than 24 hours and was never a happy one, but honestly, we all wanted Chuck and Blair together in the end anyway.
9. Because my favorite character in the series is Dan Humphrey, I had to include his dream coming true with the publication of his all-revealing novel, Inside. I'm still bitter that he made Blair the star of his book instead of Serena, but I guess I'll have to live with it. However, considering that Serena is his soul mate, I feel like this book turns out to be kind of irrelevant. Still, it moved the story along, and I was happy for Dan. As a writer myself, I couldn't help being proud of Dan when he was published.
8. Speaking of Dan and Serena, the two seconds that we saw of their wedding at the end of the series made me so so so so happy. Since literally the first episode, I was their biggest fan, so seeing them together tying the knot made the ending of the series a bit more bearable. Plus, Serena's golden dress was cutting-edge and cool... even if Jenny Humphrey designed it.
7. My number seven moment isn't just a moment technically, but we'll overlook that for now. I can't tell you how excited I was that Hilary Duff appeared on Gossip Girl. Sure, she came in between Dan and Serena, but seeing one of my childhood idols in the show was totally worth it. Plus, she wasn't in too many episodes, so it was a short and sweet appearance. Who in the world doesn't like Hilary Duff after all?
6. I think that poor Nate Archibald is kind of overlooked. After all, he doesn't end up with some fantastic love of his life like some of the other main characters. However, he made a fantastic career for himself, and as stupid as it sounds, I was really happy for him. After his father royally screwed up his family's life when he was in high school, Nate worked hard to redeem himself and create his own name.
5. The finale of Gossip Girl could possibly be one of the best hours in television, and one of the best parts of it was seeing Chuck and Blair's son, Henry Bass. Actually, I think the best part was watching Chuck interact with his tiny son. Just knowing that our favorite couple became a family was a lovely surprise in the last ten minutes of the beloved show. Chuck's smile when he saw his son was so heartwarming that I will admit that I probably cried... just a little.
4. Speaking of the Bass family, there was unfortunately a bad seed in its lineage. Bart Bass, Chuck's father, was one of the most detestable characters in the show and possibly television in general. He spoke to Chuck like his son was a failure, and I think he really messed Chuck up mentally. Therefore, my fourth top moment was Bart meeting his demise. I know... it's a bit morbid, but honestly, the guy deserved it.
3. It's funny that my favorite and least favorite characters from the show come from the same family, but Jenny Humphrey is such a horrible character that I can't describe her enough. That said, when she left Manhattan, I was so happy. Seeing her catch that train at Grand Central was lovely because I knew that I wouldn't have to watch her mess up her life anymore on screen. That will be all.
2. I've probably gushed over Dan and Serena too much already, but my favorite episode of the entire six-season series involves them. Serena and Dan had been dating in high school for a while, and when Serena notices the way her boyfriend is staring at her, she states, "I don't think anyone's ever looked at me like that before." Needless to say, my heart melted for my favorite blonde on the show, and I pushed for "Derena" even harder.
1. Of course, number one has to be the Chair wedding, or Chuck and Blair finally finally finally getting married. We literally waited since season 2 to see them together forever, and I'm pretty sure Chuck and Blair's relationship is basically everyone's goal. Though the wedding wasn't half as extravagant as Blair's wedding to Louis, the meaning and love behind the hurried "I dos" made everything okay.
