Might Gossip Girl soon fans see an NJBC reunion of sorts?

The 22nd episode of Season Five will be called "Raiders of the Lost Art," according to the CW. This follows "Salon of the Dead" this coming Monday and "Despicable B" the following week.

The "Raiders of the Lost Art" synopsis reads as follows:

Is this when we finally learn Diana's connection to the Basses? Does Dan heading off on his own spell trouble for his relationship with Blair? Are you excited to see the old gang together and scheming again?

@EmEsq i never really noticed about their accents, but I live in BK and Dan and me sound nothing alike, they have that west america accent. Also, I think the GG writers made Dair because we took Chair for granted when they were a real couple, and now they're making us beg for one little Chair moment and we watch just to see if maybe it happens, but it never does :'(


All you said about what Serena pining for Dan silently is correct but for derena to be possible Dan should also feel something and that has not been shown.Just because Serena feels does not mean Dan should too and even the other way around.My favourite pairing in season 1 ,2,3 was Derena.Then it ended and there was no mutual pining shown like in chair in earlier season which kept it alive.I don't have any problem if the show ends with Derena but it should also be equally sought by Dan (because he is a person too) or else it would be settling down for Dan and unfair for both of them...


Everyone who is defending Dan n S and how S is so in love with Dan all of sudden.. I just would like to know what was everyone's thought when S was sleeping with Nate and treating Dan like old pair of gym socks..


You're wrong that between Serena and Dan were almost no sparks. At the beginning of the 100th episode, Serena comes downstairs, sees her Dorota and tells her: Ms. Serena you will find someone who will love you. Dorota goes, appears Dan and Serena smile to him - from ear to ear. If their perception is changed, then why during the whole 5th season Serena suffers for Dan. Can it be that Serena is unable to find a boyfriend? If someone has been faithful to someone, it's Serena to Dan in season 1 and 2. Now in season 5 Serena is totally faithful to Dan, just think of him and does not want another man.


I see all the blinkers are out again. I don't think Blair and Dan are acting out of character. They are changed from the individuals they were in high school and we have seen that evolution. Also Dan and Serena haven't had sparks for awhile - if any of them have a brother/sister style relationship now it's those two. Come on they're now in their twenties - of course their perceptions have changed.


everyone keeps saying that dair is going to be broken up by the end of this season!? anyone know where that came from!?


I haven't watched an episode from this season since Blair's wedding (which was like two and a half months ago). I just couldn't handle everything that was going on. Dan and Blair being together is just ridiculous, in my opinion. Both of them are so out of character.


I hope I'm right. We think similarly. You're right, between Dan and Blair there is no sparks, their relationship is too monotonous. Dan with Serena had the most beautiful love scenes, sparks were everywhere - the scene in the attic when they interrupted by Vanesa, or in the schoolyard, or on the bus, etc.. And Chuck and Blair also had a fiery love scenes, which in itself shows how popular they are.


To wildly change the subject, are there any other native NYers on the boards who get irritated at the fact that none of the actors have any NY inflections to their accents? Like when they say "sorry" or "horrible," they don't sound at all the way a real life-long NYer would say them! Lol. Nitpicky, I know. But at least a little more light hearted :-) For the record, a native NYer says "sah-ree" instead of "sore-ree" and "har-uhble" instead of "hore-ible" lol. I'll even look past my own extreme NY way of saying "cawfee" and "chawcolate" lol.


Can't wait to see if Blair changes her mind. I want to see another "War at the Roses" passion moment, this episode was a piece of art, the actors were fantastic, the music was great, epic moment on the piano, it was perfection.
So why this lovely couple, CHAIR went down, CHAIR supports the show on it's own, I'll be happy only to watch blair and chuck on the show, cause it's all we need: normal people sharing LOVE and PASSION.
So let's have our happy ending Chair moment, and please, do not come up with another incestuous affair, Serena and Chuck will be disastrous and unbelievable.
So let's hope the writers think this time with their head and finally develop CHAIR relationship (royalty couple), like they should have done after "War at the Roses".
