It looks like Blair survived the car crash — but will her baby and the LOVE of her life Chuck Bass? Sadly, We’re going to have to wait until Jan. 16 to find out…

Tonight — Dec. 5 — marks an iconic chapter in Gossip Girl history. After years of affairs, fighting and just plain royal pains Chuck (Ed Westwick) and Blair (Leighton Meester) finally made the decision to spend the rest of their lives together. But now Chuck may not have the rest of his life to live.

Who would have thought DAN HUMPHREY (Penn Badgley) would be the mastermind behind the greatest Chair scene of all time? Instead of selfishly confessing his own love for Blair, he blindfolded her and whisked away to a candlelit room where Chuck –her real true love — was waiting for her. It was then and there that they FINALLY were on the same page and ready to take the plunge with each other. Chuck told Blair exactly what she needed to hear to choose him over Prince Louis (Hugo Becker): “I will love you as much as I love your baby.” That scene definitely brought a tear to my eye!

Then, in an attempt to leave Charlie’s (KayLee Defer) trust fund party (we’ll get to that one later), gossip girl leaked a tip of Chair’s whereabouts, triggering the paparazzi to follow them.  In just a few seconds with the flash of a camera and the wrong turn of a wheel, Chuck and Blair’s love story took a turn for the absolute worst. Chuck and Blair got into a car crash and now Chuck is barely clinging on to his own life!

I definitely did not see that one coming and I refuse to believe Chuck will actually die, there’s no way, but I’m really worried. While we don’t know if Blair lost the baby or not, is it safe to assume she did? I’m going to go ahead and say it now though, this was the BEST GG episode EVER. Hands down! From Chair to Charlie to Derena…. Jan. 16 is too long of  a wait to see how this all pans out.

Here are my top ‘OMG’ moments of the night:

#1 Chair Limo Scene Part Deux

Chuck and Blair’s love story began when they first hooked up in the backseat of the limo leaving the Victrola, and tonight their romance went full circle and they reunited in the backseat of a limo. They were talking about how they were going to raise Blair’s baby and telling each other how much they loved each other, and then BAM a car crash! I REFUSE to believe this is the end of their romance. Just because their story started in the limo doesn’t mean it will end in one.

#2 Dan Still Loves Blair

Dan deserves an award for best Upper East Sider EVER after tonight’s episode. Dan admitted that he still loves Blair and called her to tell her, but conveniently Blair was looking for a place to escape the paparazzi and Lonely Boy’s Brooklyn loft seemed like the best place to do so. Instead of telling Blair he still loved her, he helped her choose between Prince Louis and Chuck. It was so noble of him!

# Serena Still Loves Dan

Poor S, she realized the feelings Dan harbors for Blair are exactly what she feels for Dan. However, the weird creepy stepbrother/sister storyline continues to creep me out, so I’m glad Dan doesn’t feel the same way about Serena (Blake Lively).

#4 Charlie Reveals Her Identity And Leaves The UES!

Charlie’s party was interrupted by the news of crash which was sort of her fault to begin with. Charlie sent the tip about Chuck and Blair to distract the press covering her party because she didn’t want them to pay attention to her ex-boyfriend Max in case he tried to reveal her identity for the hundredth time. After the crash at the hospital, the guilt took over Charlie and she confessed she was a fraud to Rufus (Matthew Settle). The question remains: will Rufus tell everyone else? For some reason, I think Rufus will keep her secret.

This mid-season finale episode was so amazing, but I’m definitely worried about Chuck! Could he really die?? What do you think, Hollywoodlifers? Vote and sound off in your comments below!

XOXO
