The return of "it girl" Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively) to the Upper East Side serves as the first season's focal point. Shrouded in mystery and scandal, Serena's disappearance and sudden return are announced by the omniscient blogger Gossip Girl.

Nate announces his feelings for Serena a number of times and a series of battles ensue between the former Queen Bee Serena and her heir, Blair. However, the rift resolves in reconciliation between the two and temporary peace follows. Meanwhile, siblings Dan (Penn Badgley) and Jenny Humphrey (Taylor Momsen), Brooklyn residents, are attracted by the opulent wealth of their classmates. Young Jenny becomes a cunning protégée to Blair while Dan enters a relationship with Serena. It is revealed that their relationship resembles the one between Dan's father Rufus (Matthew Settle) and Serena's mother Lily (Kelly Rutherford) in their youth.

The show has come under criticism for containing scenes too risqué for its teen audience. The Parents Television Council (PTC) has shown particular criticism of the series, especially with its "OMFG" ad campaign used towards the end of the season in April 2008. It also named the episode "Victor, Victrola" the worst television program of the week in which the episode originally was broadcast. The Parents Council's negative comments include it being "the most-watched show among girls 12-17 and glamorizes casual sex and drug use among teens. [And that] storylines have featured a would-be teen rapist, threesome among teens, and teenage girls having sex with adults." Scott D. Pierce of the Deseret Morning News noted that the show is milder than a lot of what's shown on MTV, but still warned parents of several scenes in the pilot. He said it includes "among other things, a teenage girl climbing on top of a boy and removing his clothes; drunken teens having sex; teens smoking pot; teens drinking in bars, in a limo and at a party; a teen boy getting amorous with a girl who fights him off; and that same teen boy essentially attempting to rape a freshman girl who is supposed to be, what, 14?".
The DVD release of season one was released by Warner Home Video in the United States on August 19, 2008, after it had completed broadcast on television. As well as every episode from the season, the DVD release features bonus material including a downloadable audiobook, deleted scenes, and behind-the-scenes featurettes.

Also, Chuck tells Blair he loves her for the first time in this episode. Rewatching the show and seeing how problematic Chuck Bass's character is, and how he's basically given a free pass to rebrand himself as a suitable guy for Blair Waldorf, it's not as cute. But it happened.
Neither Mademoiselle Duroc nor Miss Morris mentioned the subject and wemay be sure that Anne did not, but somehow the girls got hold of enoughto gossip over and misrepresent the matter. It was whispered that Annehad a great heap of jewels and money and was being punished because shewould not tell from whom she had stolen them. Perhaps she was to be sentto prison. Her classmates stared at her with curious, unfriendly eyesand even when she was allowed again to go on the playground, they keptaway from her. Poor little Anne was very lonely.
That would be a severe punishment, for the girls dearly loved thefreedom of the long Saturday afternoons. From early dinner untilteatime, they amused themselves as they pleased, indoors or on the'Home' grounds, under the general oversight of a pupil-teacher. 2b1af7f3a8
