Bart Bass to Reappear on Gossip Girl

at . Comments

Robert John Burke (Bart Bass) was recently spotted on the set of Gossip Girl.

Yes, Chuck Bass' father is returning to the CW drama this spring ... a significant event in that he's, you know, deceased. Burke appeared once before since Bart passed, as a ghost of sorts, or figment of Chuck's imagination (see pic below), however it's unclear what brings him back to his Upper East Side stomping grounds time around.

If we had to guess, however, we'd put our money on a flashback sequence.

Chuck and Bart Bass

There's plenty of potential material, given the mysterious, largely unexplored link between Diana Payne (Elizabeth Hurley) and Chuck's family, not to mention the return of Jack Bass (Desmond Harrington).

Jack's latest UES visit, as previewed in the sneak peek earlier this week, seems a little too devoid of scandal, doesn't it? This is just a hunch, but be on the lookout for a major Bass family history lesson.

In other show news ... there's this cryptic Gossip Girl spoiler.

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.
