After a summer of guessing who belonged to the abandoned pregnancy test in the Serena and Blair’s trash — the Sept. 26th premiere of ‘Gossip Girl’ reveals TWO Upper Eastsiders are expecting this season!
As we had hoped, the season five premiere of GG kept us on the edge of our seats until the very end. The last time we watched our favorite Upper Eastsiders, Blair (Leighton Meester) was planning on going to Monaco and getting ready to marry Prince Louis after her rendezvous with Chuck (Ed Westwick). Meanwhile, Serena (Blake Lively) was jetting off to LA to spend time with her grandmother and her cousin, Charlie (Kaylee Defer), ended up not being her cousin, but really a girl named Ivy…and Nate (Chace Crawford) and Raina (Tika Sumpter) split. Needless to say, it’s safe to say a lot changed in the heat of the summer.
That said, the Biggest ‘OMG’ moment of the night was finding out at the very end of the episode WHO was pregnant! In the show’s opening, Gossip Girl herself sent out a blast notifying the UES that somebody was expecting, but the blast never got around to Blair. Later, Blair’s mom confronted her about a What To Expect When Expecting Book — that she found in Blair’s closet — and Dorota chimed in and said it was her book!
Congrats, Dorota on baby number two!
After that, we thought we were in the clear as far as Upper Eastside pregnancies were concerned, but we spoke too soon. When Blair was at a fitting for her wedding dress, the tailor asked her, “do they know how far along you are?” Yep, Blair is pregnant, too! She looked really surprised when the tailor questioned her, so we’re assuming Blair really didn’t know. At this point, we’re definitely crossing our fingers it’s Chuck Bass’s baby!
More ‘OMG’ Moments:
1. Serena’s NOT Going Back to Columbia!
Serena left NYC to get away for the summer, but she ended up finding a job as production assistant on the set of a Hollywood movie! Even after being tricked by her co-worker to buy weed for an actor on set , she was offered a full-time gig and accepted! We’re definitely excited to see what trouble Serena will stir up in LaLa land.
2. Nate’s After Another Cougar!
It’s not hard to forget Nate’s love affair with the Countess, who was about 20 years older than him — and it looks like he’s back to his old ways. Elizabeth made an appearance in tonight’s episode as Nate’s hookup buddy for the night, and we’re sure we’ll be seeing much more of her. The question is though: will Nate stay in LA, or will she chase him back to the Big Apple?
3. Dan Finds Out Vanessa Stole His Book!
Dan receives word that a chapter of his book is about to published in Vanity Fair! But the problem is, he’s never let anyone read his book — which is apparently about BLAIR. As we know, Vanessa stole the entire manuscript and sent it to a publishing company, which can’t be good news — especially since Dan went out of his way to contact Louis to stop just one chapter being published. Imagine the disaster an entire novel will cause!
4. Ivy Lives in LA!
Last but not least, Ivy — aka Charlie, Serena’s cousin — bumps into Serena at a cafe in LA! Serena of course does not know that Ivy is not her cousin.
