Gossip Girl Episode Synopsis: "The Princess Dowry"

at . Comments

"The Princess Dowry" airs February 27 on the CW. It's the 17th Gossip Girl episode of Season 5, following "Crazy Cupid Love" (February 13) and "Cross Rhodes" (February 20). What goes down on the 27th?

According to the CW's official synopsis:

  • Blair (Leighton Meester) thinks Cyrus (Wallace Shawn, who does not appear in the episode) may have found a potential loophole in her prenup.
  • Chuck (Ed Westwick) and Georgina (Michelle Trachtenberg) decide to partner up in a scheme, but it has an unpredictable outcome.
  • Meanwhile, a family crisis brings William van der Woodsen (Baldwin) back to the Upper East Side. '

What do you think brings William back, and what are Chuck and Georgina up to? Will Blair find a way out of the ridiculous dowry conundrum just as quickly as it was introduced? Comment below!


This Chuck photo is from the Feb. 20 episode. We'll post pics from "The Princess Dowry" when they come out!

@Shannon Scarlett O'Hara was never as needy or pathetic as Blair is right now.


Why is everything in italics?

Uncle jackass

Spoilers: "but it has an unpredictable outcome."... An unpredictable outcome generally means it can't predicted by the characters of both Chuck and Georgina. So if they intent to help Blair with her dowry problems or try to expose Dan in a certain that being released then it's technically very predictable. An undesirable outcome for both Georgina and Chuck, such as making the dowry matters worst or finding out it wasn't Dan is actually an unpredicted outcome for the characters. Case and point.


Maybe Dan and Blair will get together and then Georgina will tell her that Dan sent her the blast and Blair will break up with him cause could never forgive him for sending that blast and saying that Chuck did it


My think is that blair will keep with louis for a small time. She then does a divorce and louis will want to do this. My think that chuck will kiss georgina for a special purpose and blair will see it and be upset about this. my hope is that the photos with dan and blair kissing are a blair plan and blair does not truly feel for him. i do not think she would feel more love to someone than she does to chuck. just my thoughts. sorry for the mistakes, i do not speak english well.


I think Blair is very much like Scarlet O'Hara. Granted not quite as good as Scarlet, but the closest I've seen in a long time. I don't think it must end alone though. It's about damn time she gets her Rhett Butler.


I forgot the plan D. The "Fili Houteman" plan. A swimming pool, a strip girl, some kisses, paparazzi and Louis. I think I've got all the ingredients. Let's break a marriage.


@Coriander They did screw up the characters, they're just not going to admit it.


France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Monaco, ... have no recognition for that kind of marriage. It's from Napoleon code. The civil marriage must precede the religious one. It's written on the website of Monaco city hall.

Still love chuck

IA with you @junior. I'm Catholic and I know that Blair can receive a church annulment because Louis had no intention of keeping his vows to Blair per the Church sacrament. The writers had the perfect opportunity for a take down of the Grimaldi's by Nate, S, B & Chuck. Blair could have "outed" these people as frauds, creating scandal to he degree that Louis & company would have to release Blair from any obligation. Nate & S certainly would have assisted Blair by using The Spectator. Chuck certainly has more than enough resources to make sure there were no repercussions. It just seems so improbable that a woman in this day and age could be trapped in a situation like this.
