Lily clearly still has a thing for Rufus and his ability to make delicious waffles, but she's dating power-hungry Bart Bass, Chuck's dad.
(They eventually marry.)Dan's best friend Vanessa Abrams arrives back in New York, making Serena jealous. Secret-Rufus-and-Lily love child Scott.)A famous movie actress enrolls at NYU and ends up being roommates with Vanessa and starts dating Dan.
For no reason, because Vanessa is kind of lame if you ask me. Eventually they all have a threesome, which makes everything awkward (for them, and all of us watching the show). Serena falls in love with Nate's cousin Tripp, who is married and up for Congress.
The season ends with conniving Georgina Sparks, Serena's former friend, coming back to the Upper East and revealing that she was with Serena the night S slept with Nate—also, a man died in Serena's presence while they were doing drugs, and the whole thing was caught on tape. Season Two Blair starts dating royalty (of course she does), and it makes Chuck jealous. Serena is headed to Brown, Nate is going to Columbia, and Blair, Dan, Vanessa, and Georgina are going to NYU. Season Three Blair and Chuck start off the season madly in love. They run away together, then get in a car crash, and Tripp runs off. Dan starts dating Vanessa again—even though he still has feelings for Serena—but she starts dating her professor at Columbia.

It's the end of an era—the show premiered in 2007!
Remember the film “Date night”, where a couple of long time weds had one really crazy night out, do you remember the girl, who watched over their kids?
Yes, it was Leighton Meester who played not very much attentive and pretty much expensive nanny, that couldn’t wait to run off to a date night herself.
