School is out for summer on the Upper East Side and it's going to be a hot one! But before departing for their homes in the Hamptons, taking off for Tuscany, or cooling off in Brooklyn, our favorite prep-schoolers left everyone with something to gossip about.
Dan and Serena: Did he or didn't he? Even after Serena (Blake Lively) caught a confused Dan (Penn Badgley) waking up with her enemy Georgina (Michelle Trachtenberg), she forgives him and wants to make things work. But with all the lies and deception, Dan breaks it off -- but not before a last dance at Lily's (Kelly Rutherford) wedding. Will they get back together?
Chuck and Blair: Chuck (Ed Westwick) was full of surprises on his father's wedding day. Not only did he make up with Nate (Chance Crawford) and deliver a heartfelt speech, but he also got the girl. That's right, Blair Waldorf fell for Chuck Bass, and this time they are taking it slow -- or to a summer in Tuscany. But before Blair could get too excited, Chuck leaves her hanging at the heliport to flirt with his family's new decorator Amelia (Lydia Hearst). Will Chuck pass up a chance to be with the only girl he has ever loved?
Nate and Serena: Seems like Nate isn't affected by Blair's sudden change of heart. After splitting with Vanessa (Jessica Szohr), he runs into a sad and single Serena. Looks like the two will be spending the summer "alone together." And we know they have history. Do they make a good couple?
Dan and Vanessa: Back in Brooklyn, the newly single BFFs have the entire summer to catch up -- and possible make up for lost time. Will they finally get together?
Georgina: Blair enlists an unlikely ally in Dan to get the girl who blackmailed and drugged Serena out of town and safely away at reform school. Is it the last we'll see of her?
Favorite Fashion Moment: Serena's yellow-tiered Ralph Lauren Collection dress, hot off the runway, and Lily's Van Cleef and Arpels jewels (valued at $2,711,500!) and Vera Wang wedding dress.
Fashion Police: It was really sweet of Jenny (Taylor Momsen) to make a bright orange dress for Vanessa, but it turned out to be more of a bright orange mess -- and that flower in her hair didn't help. It's a miracle Little J got that internship at Parsons! --Andrea DeSimone
