I’m extremely disappointed with how the Jan. 16 episode of ‘Gossip Girl’ panned out. I hate to say it, but if Blair marries Louis the show is totally OVER.
On the Jan. 16 episode of Gossip Girl, we took a trip into the future, skipping over the hospital-drama and landing right into the upcoming weeks before Blair’s (Leighton Meester) wedding. And much to the dismay of Chair fans — it looks like Queen B has made her final decision to marry Prince Louis (Hugo Becker).
The last time we saw Chuck (Ed Westwick) and Blair together, they were confessing their love to each other in the back of a limousine. But now everything has changed after their near-death car crash.
Apparently, Chuck barely survived, but it was Blair’s prayer that brought him back to life. B said a prayer promising that she would follow through with her “vow” to marry Louis if only Chuck could live. And miraculously, he did.
And now this is WHY she won’t call off the wedding!!
I think this is absolutely the most absurd thing that I’ve EVER heard! First of all, Blair did not make a vow to Louis — YET. She has not made a promise to love Louis for the rest of her life in a church! They aren’t married!! God wants Blair to be happy, right? And if Blair feels dead inside without Chuck — which she said she did — I think God would be OK with Blair leaving Louis instead of living the rest of her life in a LIE.
Someone needs to knock some sense into Blair’s head and I’m hoping it will be Serena (Blake Lively). Gossip Girl Executive Producer, Josh Safran, did say that Serena will be right by Blair’s side throughout the wedding. Maybe it will be her sensible words that will have her to call off the wedding?
If not, I think Gossip Girl is headed towards dark days. NOBODY wants Blair to marry Louis! And even if she strays and has a secret affair with Chuck, again, it won’t be the same. Chuck and Blair have so much potential! They are the definition of true love!
I think a lot of the show’s fans — like myself– feel very disappointed with the direction our favorite chairytale is headed…
And here are my ‘OMG’ moments of the Jan. 16 episode:
#1) Chuck and Blair’s final love confession
Blair definitely owed it to Chuck to explain WHY she has been ignoring him since the car crash. And even though she didn’t fully explain the situation to him — she did assure him that she will always love him. “Just because we can’t be together doesn’t mean I don’t love you,” Blair said to Chuck. “I saw what was important and I made the only choice I could.” But Chuck, of course, refused to accept this and said he would continue to fight for her! Hopefully he can do this BEFORE she walks down the aisle Jan. 30!
#2) Blair Loses The Baby
Queen B is no longer carrying Louis’ baby. As we predicted, she lost it in the Dec. 5 car crash. I wasn’t sure where that storyline was going to go anyway…
#3) Serena and Dan Kiss
And as one door closes, another one opens. Serena (Blake Lively) — being the best friend she is — covers up Blair’s secret by lying and saying she is the one who actually has a relationship with Dan (Penn Badgley). This leads them to kissing at the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Eve. It’s totally obvious that Serena is still so in love with Dan, but is the feeling mutual?
#4) The Real Charlie is Revealed
In Lily’s (Kelly Rutherford) search to find out where Charlie (Kaylee Defer) fled to after the night of the car crash, she actually runs into the REAL Charlie! Is this the new blonde who is going to steal Nate’s (Chace Crawford) heart?
What did you think about tonight’s episode, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Blair has made her final decision about Louis? Will Serena and Dan’s love reignite? VOTE and sound off in your comments below!
