'Gossip Girl' Recap: Chuck & Blair Bet On Their Love, Plus 4 More 'OMG' Moments

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

What did you think, HollywoodLifers? Are you happy Chuck and Blair are back together? Were you totally surprised by Serena’s behavior? Weigh in below.

Dair is totally bad idea. Chair is the best! Can’t be more excited to see the final season of GG. Hopefully, Serena’s life is getting better & We’ll know who is the person behind GG.

I am so glad Chuck and Blair are finally back! but, honestly, I had a hard time believing that Serena and Blair would both go on the war path again. Seriously, are their characters ever allowed to grow up? As far as Bart and Lily, they definitely do deserve each other. Poor Rufus. The Humphrey family just cannot catch a break. Hopefully Dan goes all out in this book and we will all witness a drama-filled sixth season!

I just really want to see Chuck and Blair together! It’s been painful watching season 5, to see B’s fall from grace –she went from being a real princess to being Dan Humphrey’s girlfriend. That was a bit of a sad stretch on the part of the producers. I feel bad for everything that Chuck has been through, but it seems reasonable that he finally stops chasing Blair. Maybe once Blair builds up her name again through her mom’s fashion empire, she will be worthy of marrying Chuck again.

Brilliant episode, even though some characters at this point were completely unnecessary. At last we have a chance to see CHAIR together. My only hope for season 6 is that everything evolves around Chuck and Blair. Why not a secret wedding at the beginning of next season, so that GG doesn’t know, and then leave Chair alone for a while. Don’t really care much for serena dan and the rest, but wish to see Nate ending up finding love, a healthy one this time.
Thank you Nicole for your article. Please get new scoops for the fans!

This was a terrible episode. I loved Blair but I cannot believe what she did to Dan, it was despicable. She didn’t even have the decency to face him. It’s sad that Serena and Blair will have turned the most wonderful guy on the show into a dark scheming character. Though, I really hope his new book destroys them all and make Blair face the consequences.

i dont know how to react to this season finale…but 1 thing’s for sure i love CHAIR together again…..im dont support dair but i don’t like serena’s plotting against dan and blair,i mean dan really likes blair and people are being rude to his feelings it’s not good.It’s like making a monster out of dan,in the future if dan will be bad and plotting and scheming badly it’s becoz of the upper east side,blair and serena anyhow.It’s sad coz Dan is a good character in the show and his a realistic one.Anyway it’s Gossip Girl and Chuck and Blair are the people im rooting for the show so i couldn’t agree more when Blair’s going for all in for Chuck!!!!
Can’t wait for season 6 i hope Sara Goodman will make this last season unforgettable for Chairshippers as we’re beginning to watch it again.And as for gg fans to be “the most”season finale of the most watched teen flick in the world!!!Good luck!!!

YES!!! Blair and Chuck! I hope Chuck realizes that he made a mistake and they got together after that moment. Ahh, I can’t wait until the next season!
However, there were so many WTF moments this episode. Like Dan taking Georgina to Italy and Lily choosing Bart over Rufus. Plus, Serena going back to her old ways and sleeping with her best friend’s boyfriend and going away on a train. With a guy selling her drugs then necking her? It was just a really good episode.

They have always put Serena as the one who always screws up her and Blairs friendship. And it was pretty stupid of GG to recycle the same story of Serena sleeping with someone that Blair likes. Frankly im so glad next season is the last! With the whole dair relationship, with their friendship being ruined again! and alot of other things, it got worse through the years.
