What is 'Gossip Girl' Part 2 about?
The midseason finale of 'Gossip Girl' left viewers with many unanswered questions as it ended with the cliffhanger of Julien and Obie kissing. The new trailer shows the aftermath as Obie who's now with Julien's half-sister Zoya confused about his equation with his ex. Added to the mix is a suggestive photo of Audrey, Max and Aki in bed together. As we see a whirlwind of kisses, hookups and dilemmas, Zoya tells Julien, "we’re not sisters. We're not friends. We're nothing. There's no coming back from this". But it's far from over as towards the end we see the influencer get canceled and war about to begin.
