Wonder store opening in Manhattan's Time Warner Center, where the actress revealed that filming is nearly complete, with only two episodes to go. "It's been such an amazing and beautiful experience, on camera and off," she told us. "To do a show where the backdrop is New York, it's wonderful. And I love everyone I work with. But everything has to come to an end." So, what kind of scandalous surprises can we expect at the end of this season? "You know, I don't even know how they're going to end it!" she said. "But there are a lot of twists and turns already that I'm even surprised by! I don't really want to know yet. I'll have to see what they'll come up with." At least we're not the only ones!Will you watch the last season of GG?

Plus, see the show's best looks!
