Gossip Girl Spoiler: How Eric is Outed

by at . Comments

Thanks to a slip from Kelly Rutherford, we already know which male Gossip Girl character will be revealed as gay in an upcoming episode.

The fact that it's Eric van der Woodsen (Connor Paolo) is not too shocking, given that of all the Gossip Girl characters pictured below, he's the only one without a steamy hookup or romance plot line so far.

Gossip Girl Spoiler: How Eric is Outed

But it's the way Eric is outed that is the true jaw-dropper in all of this, writes Kristin Veitch of E! Online. OMG. For the deets of this juicy Gossip Girl spoiler, you'll have to follow the jump ...

Rumor has it that he will caught making out with Jenny Humphrey's new boyfriend! How's that for another kick in the gut to the girl who, as we've seen, just can't seem to catch a break?!

Interestingly, in the original Gossip Girl book series, it was Dan Humphrey who questioned his sexuality.

The TV series has no plans for any same-sex action for Dan.

Penn Badgley (Dan) said in October:

"I think [Dan] is straight-up gay in the books. But I don't think network TV really has the balls to make one of its [teenage] series regulars gay. Let's say the show builds up to become a big hit, then I think they'd maybe explore it in year three or four."

of course it's eric. as the begginning of the article said, he hasn't had a steemy hookup. In the books, yes it was Chuck, but they wouldn't have made such a big deal of Chuck being heartbroken over Blair if he was tobe outed.

Wow. Jennys new boyfriend really impressed me. And he really
seemed interested in her in a more-than-friends sort of way.
Maybe Eric puts the moves on him without him reciprocating.
I really like Nate and Vanessa as a couple. I also love the
idea of Blair and Chuck as a couple. Separately, they are
both kind of evil, but I think together they would definitely
be very powerful. I think that Blair could also bring out
the loving side of Chuck, rather than the womanizing side.
I hope that Serena doesn't lose Dan by not telling him the
truth, and I hope Dan doesn't get caught in a trap by Georgina. Well, if Dan and Serena do break up, maybe that will give
their parents a chance to hook up again so that Lily can
lose Chuck's dad, yuck.

And who am I? That's one secret I'll never tell ... You know you love me. XOXO, Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl

[to Jenny] That's the thing. You need to be cool to be queen. Anne Boleyn thought only with her heart and she got her head chopped off. So her daughter Elizabeth made a vow never to marry a man. She married a country. Forget boys. Keep your eye on the prize, Jenny Humphrey. You can't make people love you, but you can make them fear you. For what it's worth, you're my Queen. I choose you.
