Jack Bass to Blame For Looming Gossip Girl Breakup

by at . Comments

Blame Jack.

Gossip Girl fans up in arms over the rumored breakup of Chuck Bass and Blair Waldorf later this season can look no further for a scapegoat than Chuck's shady uncle Jack.

We first met Jack (played by Desmond Harrington of Dexter fame) last season, when he tried to torpedo Chuck's takeover of Bass Industries - and his relationship with Blair.

The good guys won in the end, but we've heard allusions to Jack's revenge already this season - Chuck's fake liquor license - and now it looks like he's back in full effect.

EW's Michael Ausiello said simply in his Q&A today that when it comes to Blair and Chuck’s break-up on Gossip Girl, blame Jack. It’s all his fault. The only question is how?

One theory: Chuck's "mother" is a fraud. We also know that Chuck is the one, supposedly, whose actions trigger the breakup. How could Jack be setting up his nephew?

Theories and comments are welcome.

Jack

Desmond Harrington will be back on Gossip Girl this spring.

    We have how many? 2 episodes left until the Empire Strikes Jack...then we'll find out. Anyways, (just a thought)- maybe jackass will use his 'Mommy' to steal his hotel...then after losing it he fights with his mommy, and after still losing the battle... jackass will propose something to get it back, and it involves Blair. So obviously Chuck agrees and so on... i dunno ( I REALLY HOPE IM WRONG)!
