The requiem bells are ringing louder and louder for the fans and cast of Gossip Girl. Just yesterday, set photos were released revealing a pivotal plot point in the upcoming series finale, and now to add to the painful walk to the finish line, old faces are reappearing just in time to say goodbye to the beloved show.
Nostalgia ensued as Taylor Momsen and Connor Paolo reprised their roles as Jenny Humphrey and Eric Van Der Woodsen, respectively for one of the final days of filming in New York City, as shown through instagram.
Momsen was seen on the set for the first time in over a year, since she left to persue her music career with her band The Pretty Reckless. The actress definitely has a different look for her character since she left the show, switching her clean pre-teen image for a more grown up rocker look, mirroring her off screen transformation. Paolo hasn’t been away from the set for as long a time, but for Eric fans, it’s nevertheless just as wonderful to have him back, even only for a little while. The actor left the show last summer in order to star in the ABC series, Revenge. It’s nice to see that he has time to go back to his roots for the finale of the show.
No word yet on the details of the characters’ returns. Both actors may have been in attendance of the wedding that appeared to be filmed on the set yesterday. But in the world of Gossip Girl, anything is possible. I guess we’ll just have to watch to find out! This cast sure isn’t making it easy for fans to say goodbye, huh?
