Gossip Girl Reveals Gossip Girl

GOSSIP GIRL-- 'New York, I Love You XOXO' --  Pictured (L-R): Desmond Harrington as Jack Bass, Blake Lively as Serena Van Der Woodsen, Penn Badgley as Dan Humphrey, Chace Crawford as Nate Archibald, Michelle Trachtenberg as Georgina Sparks and Sofia Black-D’Elia as Sage

Amid other major revelations on last night's Gossip Girl finale, the show finally told us who was behind all those life-altering text-blasts. So now we know who Gossip Girl is!

And it's Dan. Womp, womp. That … fits, ish. Mr. Lonely Boy himself turned out to be the cruel chronicler of our UES darlings, and it makes a certain amount of sense: Who else but he would be so enamored with his own chronic patheticness? As for who else it could have been, Georgina was too obvious, Serena too victimized, Blair too busy scheming with other ways to destroy people, Nate too dumb, Chuck not interested enough in others' lives, and anyone else would have felt like a cop-out. (Except Dorota. Even Bloomberg believes.) The final recap will be up later today, but until then, uh, XOXO.
