Coming to Gossip Girl: Rufus-William Drama

by at . Comments

Wait, Rufus is still on Gossip Girl? Nice.

We were getting confused there. Guy's become part of the scenery, albeit handsome scenery. Lily outfits him in some quality scarves, we've gotta give her credit.

The beloved father on Gossip Girl will soon return to the spotlight when Billy Baldwin reprises his role as William van der Woodsen, beginning Monday, February 28.

Eric's Two Dads

William's return causes tension for Eric, reports Connor Paolo.

“Between Eric and Serena, Eric has a much closer relationship with Rufus ... he does not really have a relationship with his biological father and whenever he shows up, it’s a threatening thing with Rufus, and Eric tries to back up Rufus," Connor tells EW.

"[This] creates a bit of a riff as you can imagine,” he says.

Thankfully, Eric is turning 18 soon ... or is it thankfully? “It’s not what you’d expect for an 18th birthday,” Paolo says, “but then again, what ever is on our show.”

True that, E. True that.

I really don´t get why anyone would choose William over Rufus.
Yes, the writers didn´t give him much of a storyline this season, but still, he really loves Lily and the kids (all of them) and is a good person. He always supports them und would to anything for them - and is probably the only person on the show who has some kind of morals. William on the other hand pretended Lily still had cancer and gave her drugs she didn´t need, lied to her and the kids about a betrayal Rufus never commited and was never present in the kids´ lives. Also I can´t see a reason why Lily would take him back and why noone would call the police when he shows up, what he did was a serious crime and against all ethics.

GG=life:
i agree to your post and to the hater here i only have to say, sometimes there its really so, that the womans are more the boss in the family. by my family is that for example. my mother is really the boss. my parents are different like day and night but they are together since about 30 years and they are dammed happy. strange or?

I think that could be a good storyline if they do it right. Although they could give him some more storylines like with his band lincoln hawk. Maybe he meets one of his old band members and they want to return to their old days of rocking out but the band member really wants something else from him. That could be interesting!

I cannot wait for this showdown because Serena still backs her father up.
