The time has come: after 21 episodes, the finale of Gossip Girl‘s fourth season has arrived: as usual, this means lots of drama, of unexpected returns (Georgina is back) and of interesting undeveloped events that will surely bring new plots in the next season. I quite enjoyed The Wrong Goodbye , whose central event is the party at the Constance Billard, but I’ve got one complaint: Lily is relegated in two scenes and she has no part in the main action, which is a pity. The upcoming season will surely bring a turn in her storyline: she’s under house arrest, but it’s still unclear what the future has in store for her.
The first scene where she appears in set in her living room. Eric, like all the other young characters, is attending the party at his school and sends his mother a video of the event (she watches it on a tablet).
One of the shadiest characters of this season is Charlie, Lily’s (fake) niece, who is attending the party but at a certain point disappears. Dan, Serena and Vanessa are looking for her, and in the meantime Lily contacts her sister to tell her what has happened.
The second scene is set in another corner of the living room, three weeks after the party. She’s sitting on the sofa with Rufus and Eric on the couch, and she looks a little bit worried or simply tired. Her outfit includes a pair of trousers and a blouse, both in a very refined shade of greyish antique rose.
Her blouse – a creation by Sine – is gorgeous: it’s made of silk, it has pleatings on the front and ruffles accenting the shoulders.
Her jewellery includes a stunning rhinestone necklace with a central knot and tiny diamond earrings. Her hairstyle is her trademark chic updo.
I couldn’t get a good screencap of her shoes, but she’s wearing suede mary-janes in a neutral shade. Her ankle monitor, on the other hand, is fully visible. Unfortunately, there’s nothing memorable in this outfit, but it’s surely in line with her style.
What are your opinions on this season’s finale? Did it live up to your expectations or did it disappoint you? And what about the enigma in the closing scene? Whose pregnancy test is that?
 The title is a reference to The Long Goodbye (1973) by Robert Altman, starring Elliot Gould as the iconic detective Philip Marlowe.
