Jessie: Please tell me there is hope for Rufus and Lily on Gossip Girl!
There’s a battle brewing on the Upper East Side: It’s going to be Ivy and Rufus vs. Lily in the coming episodes. Of course, we all know that the artist formerly known as Charlie Rhodes is playing Papa Humphrey. But did you know she already has man she’s very much in love with? One we all know and (don’t) trust. Hint: He’s also a father.

The countdown to the final Gossip Girl episodes has begun — and the season six premiere featured some interesting developments.
In previewing the season, executive producer Sara Goodman hinted that the characters “are going to end where we feel like they belong.” If that’s the case, then step one to reaching that destination consisted of a wedding (though not Serena’s), a Blair-Chuck deal that kept their romance at bay, the start of a questionable (age-inappropriate?) relationship and the near-reveal of Gossip Girl.
The Hollywood Reporter asked executive producer Sara Goodman to weigh in on some of the premiere’s top moments, the decisions behind them and the potential aftermath.
The Hollywood Reporter: The Rufus (Matthew Settle) and Ivy (Kaylee DeFer) story line was a surprise, in terms of where it may end up going. Did you and the writers have any reservations moving forward with their relationship?
Sara Goodman: It is a big development. [Laughs] It’s so funny, in a weird way when we came into the season and we knew we had a limited amount of time and we knew who we wanted to keep around, Lily (Kelly Rutherford) had chosen Bart (Robert John Burke) last season and we really felt that we didn’t want Rufus sitting there moping — and that hewouldn’t be. He and Ivy had some interesting connections last season, especially when he found out Lily had betrayed Ivy, and he had taken Ivy’s side at that time. So when we were talking about what to do, it made sense for us in terms of them ending up together. Now, of course, we know Ivy is Ivy so she might have her own motivations. It felt like they both were outsiders, but they both had been in. They might be an interesting couple – and I think they are. They have a lot of the same problems: They both have issues with Lily and that obviously is going to cause huge ripples with people around them the fact that they are together.
THR: This was a development that was discussed last season?
Goodman: Yes, we planted that possibility in season five.
THR: At the end of the episode, Dan (Penn Badgley) witnesses the two of them in bed. How will that affect him going forward?
Goodman: As this goes on further, we’ll just have to see what he does from there and how Dan reacts. We tried to make it clear that seeing that took off all of the moral questions that he might have had about publishing this serial with real names. He always felt like his dad was the moral center and now that he doesn’t trust that his father is the center of anything now that he’s with Ivy, it means that there’s nothing stopping Dan from going all the way with this serial.
THR: Ivy also has some tricks up her sleeve. What is her grand plan exactly?
Goodman: We know that at the end of the season last year, Lola (Ella Rae Peck) came to her with the caveat that she take Lily down. It’s not a secret that that’s what she’s up to. We should all assume that that’s what she’s up to, and whether Rufus is going to be in it or not in it will be a question. Is Rufus just a tool or is she interested in him and what will he do if he finds out? Whose side will he be on?
THR: Nate (Chace Crawford) also failed at unmasking Gossip Girl. How close does he actually get to doing so?
Goodman: That one you’ll have to wait and see. Gossip Girl is definitely part of this season.
Gossip Girl airs 9 p.m. Mondays on The CW.
DEAD ENDS — Chuck’s (Ed Westwick) continued investigation into his father’s dealings leads him to an unlikely event with Manhattan’s elite, where he hopes to find the one person who can tell him the truth about Bart (guest star Robert John Burke).

With The Spectator in jeopardy after Dan (Penn Badgley) decided to publish elsewhere, Nate (Chace Crawford) must make a difficult decision to keep it in business. Meanwhile, Georgina (guest star Michelle Trachtenberg) pushes Dan to choose a worthy person to date to boost his image, but he finds himself drawn in a different direction. Leighton Meester, Kelly Rutherford, Matthew Settle and Kaylee DeFer also star. Sofia Black-D’Elia guest stars. Matt Whitney directed the episode written by Andy Wolk (#604).
