“Gossip Girl here, your one and only source into the scandalous lives of Manhattans elite”
As quarantine continues to be a normal in our day to day lives I have a feeling we all have been spending a little more time watching Netflix than in the past. Personally, I am a creature of habit and I rarely watch new shows and typically stick to movies/tv shows that I know and love. Gossip Girl is no exception and while I love binge watching from start to finish sometimes I just need a 1-2 episode pick me up on a bad day. This is why I am sharing a list of all my favorite episodes of Gossip Girl in case you wanted to just pick a good episode to watch when you need a little Upper East Side in your life.
