It's been over a decade since the true identity of the mysterious and bitchy blogger Gossip Girl was revealed to us.
Yep after six seasons and more than 120 episodes of guessing, it's safe to say that we were all left open-mouthed at the revelation that Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley) was the person dishing the dirt on the Upper East Siders.
We totally didn't see that one coming (and we're still confused about it now, if we're honest).
However, one eagle-eyed Gossip Girl fan has since pointed out that the creators of the teen drama made it clear it was Dan from the very first episode.
How, you ask? Watch and see.
"They told us in episode one!!!" @yussijuicy2.0 posted along with the clip.
We never would have guessed Lonely Boy was actually Gossip Girl from that hint alone - but others have already connected the dots that Dan was the one preying on the elite.
An article by ScreenRant notes that Dan was the only character at Grand Central Station when Serena arrives - making him the only person privy to that information.
They also point to the way Dan is often seen hovering and lurking in the background as many of the main characters are talking - which means he was in the prime spot to get gossip but remain undetected.
However, we're not the only ones who were left baffled by the announcement that Dan was Gossip Girl. Even Penn Badgley himself was left perplexed.
"It doesn't make sense at all. It wouldn't have made sense for anybody. Gossip Girl doesn't make sense!" he told People magazine in 2015. "But no, it made enough sense. He was a writer."
Joshua Safran, who served as one of Gossip Girl's key writers, explained the plot twist in 2017.
"In the end, it had to be Dan, because Dan's a writer, observer, and could write in different styles," he told Vulture.
Hmmm...wonder if the Gossip Girl reboot will have such a twist ending? xoxo
