Gossip Girl Season 5 Finale

Finally the odds were in Chair’s favor and this time it was better than EVER!

They say something worth having, is something worth waiting for.

And for Chuck (Ed Westwick) and Blair (Leighton Meester), that couldn’t be more true.

Season five has been full of bad-timing, near-death experiences and marriage/divorces, but none of that mattered at the end of the day because these two are the real deal. The season 5 finale started with Gossip Girl leaking Blair’s diary which revealed her deepest thoughts about Chuck. Everyone — including Dan — found out that while Blair loved Dan, she was still totally in love with Chuck. But then pages from her diary revealing that she hated Chuck were leaked. Blair decided to find Chuck and make sure that he was OK — which he was — but she still kept her true feelings about Chuck quiet.

However, after leaving Chuck high and dry at the Empire Hotel ONCE again, Blair came to her senses and realized she had to make a decision between Chuck and Dan (Penn Badgley). Dan, of course ended up making that decision easier for Blair, but more on that later.

Blair decided to skip the Sheppard party and to go back to the Empire to tell Chuck that she loved him. Bart Bass had to go and ruin this one — even after encouraging Chuck to propose to Blair again — by taking back the reigns of Bass Industries. Bart once again he chose his career over Chuck. But Blair consoled Chuck and finally told him that she loved him! It was one of the best Chair moments ever, but Chuck was so upset about his dad he couldn’t see Blair’s true intentions…

And here are my ‘OMG’ Moments:

#1 Dans Cheats On Blair With Serena
Oh, Lonely Boy! He’s definitely living up to his nickname now. Serena sent a minion to distract Blair while she attempted to seduce Dan — and it worked. Serena lured Dan into another bar at the party where she asked him to unzip her dress after being spilled on. One thing led to another and the next thing you know they were hooking up. Flashback to season one? It was an oddly familiar scene to when Serena hooked up with Nate at the SHEPPARD wedding!

#2 Lily & Rufus Divorce
Having Bart Bass back in the picture complicated more than lives than just Chuck’s. Now that he’s alive, Lily is is technically  married to him and with her marriage on the rocks with Rufus (Matthew Settle) she was faced with a difficult decision. Ultimately — and honestly surprisingly — she chose Bart Bass. I must admit I like them together, and frankly they deserve each other.

#3 Nate & Lola Move In Together
We definitely saw this one coming! Nate (Chace Crawford) took a big step and asked Lola and move in with him. As long as Lola stays out of the UES craziness, I think they’ll be just fine.

#4 Chuck and Blair Reunite — Forever?
After Blair thought she had lost Chuck for good, they both find themselves in Paris, France. And if it weren’t for Jack Bass, Blair wouldn’t have ever known that Chuck was at the casino.  Blair strolled up and sat right next to Chuck and told him how all along she’s been betting against him, but that now it was time to go ALL in.

I think it’s safe to assume they kissed then, right? May the odds be ever in Chair’s favor, forever.

Until next season…. Xoxo
