Let’s Dance: The Most Iconic TV Prom Episodes
Throughout its run, Gossip Girl was always about glamour and fashion, so the show’s prom episode was naturally filled with both. The present-day storyline of the episode is told in parallel to the story of Serena’s mother’s rebellious youth. The prom elements, though, focus on Nate and Blair’s relationship as it comes to an end.
There’s a certain genius to the idea that Prom represents endings and new beginnings as much as anything else. For Nate and Blair, it means one last perfect moment before they separate forever. It’s sweet and sad in equal measure, and surprisingly poignant for the show.
