Penn Badgley, Leighton Meester
While Gossip Girl fans may be torn between who they want Blair to be with, Leighton Meester is not.
"The one relationship I'd love to play out is Blair and Dan," she told TVGuide.com at the show's 100th episode party Saturday night. Penn Badgley (Dan) said: "I like the Blair [story line] because it's the most exciting for Dan as a person."

"I wrote the first scene with them together in Season 1 ... and we knew at that moment there was something there," he said.

Here's what Gossip Girl executive producer Josh Safran doesn't — and won't — talk about when it comes to the show's fifth season: the identity of who is pregnant, a possible second glimpse of Oscar-nominated director David O. Russell (so impressed by Serena's knowledge of The Beautiful and Damned he handed her a summer job), Ivy, the whereabouts of the real Charlie (and if it even matters), the fall-out from Dan's Upper East Side-bashing book, Georgina, gone-but-angry outcast Vanessa ...

Fortunately, some of those cliff-hangers will immediately be dealt with when Gossip Girl returns (Monday, 8/7c, CW). TVGuide.com instead got Safran's thoughts about why Blair has become the show's most interesting character (by far), what makes this season more fun than last (even if it didn't begin in Paris) and why Serena could wind up being the best movie producer ever:

Leighton Meester and Penn Badgley
Are Dan and Blair over already? Blair's blunt brush-off last week certainly made it seem that way, but this is Gossip Girl and there's just no way fans would be rewarded with so little pay-off.
That said, we've got some unresolved issues. Why do we care about Raina, again? Will Vanessa stop pining for Dan? And haven't all the lead actors said recently that they want to move on from the show?
