You may have just shaken off the sleepy tryptophan after-effects of your Thanksgiving dinner, but Turkey Day comes a little late to TV’s Upper East Side (thanks/no thanks to Hurricane Sandy). Last night was Gossip Girl’s Season 6 Thanksgiving episode, and as with most family gatherings, there was plenty of drama to go around. The newly official couple, Serena (Blake Lively) and Dan (Penn Badgley) decide to host a holiday dinner, inviting all of their friends and much of their family to the mid-day fête (an easy way for the show writers to get a volatile combination of characters in one place at one time and FORCED to talk to each other). The biggest buzzkill bubbling under the surface? The fact that Dan’s next Vanity Fair chapter is all about S. Yikes!
Blair (Leighton Meester) may have held up her end of their relationship pact, but Chuck (Ed Westwick) is still plagued by his quest to undo Bart (Robert John Burke). The success of Waldorf Designs junior line, though, leaves B with free hands to devote 100% of her scheming mind to helping out Chuck. Lily (Kelly Rutherford) may have finally been convinced of her husband’s wrong-doings, and begins to help Chuck unravel his estranged father. Sage (Sofia Black-D’Elia) and her father Steven (Barry Watson) also turn up at dinner, and with a little help from Georgina (Michelle Trachtenberg), Dan’s Serena chapter sees the light of day. If you haven’t caught up yet, we won’t spoil the rest for you, but check back here weekly for our fashion recap!
