‘Gossip Girl’ season 6 spoilers: Penn Badgley teases rise of ‘dark Dan’

Dan Humphrey does have a good many reasons to be upset at the moment leading up to “Gossip Girl’s” sixth and final season … but how he responds and acts on that anger is probably going to be something that surprises a good many fans expecting to see something a little bit different from him.

Speaking to E! News recently at the Toronto International Film Festival, Penn Badgley does his best to tease how everything that has happened to his character courtesy of both Blair and Georgina is going to throw him down an incredibly dark and rather twisted path:

“He’s actually going down a dark path finally, but in a real way … I mean, I think he’s dabbled in the dark before, but you’re like, ‘Dude, that’s not that dark. You don’t know what dark is.’ It seems like he might be going there a little bit, but it’s good … I think he might be betraying people in a profound way that he’s never had the balls to or the lack of heart to.”

While we understand much of the reason for Dan’s rage (and seeing Blair slowly start to work things out with Chuck is not going to help by any means), we do still hope that the guy finds a way to get everything together by the end of the show come later this year. While it is probably impossible given that this never happens in real life, we do want to see most of these Upper East Side characters find what they are looking for in life … or at least learn something along the way.

What do you want to see happen with Dan this season? If you want some more details about the actual series finale of the show, be sure to head over to the link here.
