What's Eric's Future on Gossip Girl?

at . Comments

The producers of Gossip Girl have big plans for Eric van der Woodsen.

Plans that involve any brilliant 18-year-old's rite of passage, naturally.

“Eric was always going to go to college. And when you find out where Eric will be going off to college, you will see how that’ll shape up in season 5,” Stephanie Savage says.

This is an open-ended plot line, considering that Connor Paolo has signed on for a new pilot (ABC's Revenge). So this gives the show plenty of options for his future.

Young Eric

At least Eric was in this week's family photo. Unlike Jenny.

If he leaves for good, I will never forgive the writers. He has been so awesome this season.


I think that he should stay and we discover that erik is not fully gay, but bisexual and he falls for blair. BAM.


Well, I feel sad. I like the character played by Paolo : he's the smartest of the VdWs, I think.
Besides, Connor Paolo is much like George Clooney or great french wine : the more he ages, the better he becomes. Oh ! well, this is my opinion...


wonder if he's going to Cali for school?

Aww, I like Eric. I will miss him if he is not seen on my TV. First Jenny, now Eric....when will Vanessa go??

I don't want Eric to go. But I guess it's pretty obvious that he will come back, at least as a guest star. Let's have Jenny back now, please. We need some more drama!

Gossip Girl Quotes

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.
