Gossip Girl Season Finale Spoilers: Return of the ...

at . Comments

The CW has released its official synopsis for the upcoming fifth season finale of Gossip Girl, airing Monday, May 14. On that night, Blair Waldorf makes a choice between the two men in her life.

The episode title: "The Return of the Ring."

There's a lot else going on in this installment, which executive producer Josh Safran told us will include a major cliffhanger and forever alter the fabric of the show. Here's what lies in store ...

Blair at the Party
  • When Gossip Girl goes after Blair as she’s never done before, Serena admits she may have unintentionally played an important role in Blair’s latest nightmare.
  • Lily must make a big decision about the future of her marriage. 
  • Nate invites Lola to move in with him.
  • Finally, by episode’s end, Blair will make a choice between the two men in her life... will it be Chuck or Dan?

Sounds like an intense episode. What do you think turns Gossip Girl against Blair so dramatically? Does this mean she wrests back control of the site? And will Serena's role as Gossip Girl 3.0 be exposed?

Can Rufus and Lily survive, and will the lovely Lola accept Nate's bold request?

Finally, do you think the episode's title implies that Chuck's engagement ring will make another appearance? Will Blair actually choose Dan for the long haul if Chuck makes one final play for her affections?

Two episodes remain ("Raiders of the Lost Art" and "The Fugitives") between now and then, and the possibilities for our beloved characters are endless, especially in light of recent developments.

UPDATE, 5/2: There are rumors of a Derena reunion, as well as a Monaco trip. Serena's role remains unclear, but part of the finale does take place overseas, and at least two central characters are there.

UPDATE, 5/3: Apparently Serena is getting a "new" love interest ... who we already know. And the choice Blair makes will NOT be a cliffhanger. She will make a clear choice, one way or the other.

UPDATE, 5/11: According to new intel, someone will “see” Gossip Girl, while the final scene will feature two characters - one male, one female - and does not take place in New York. So ... there you go.

Who should Blair choose on Gossip Girl?

Sure, vote for Chair if you want a boyfriend who trades you for a hotel, has violent tendencies, is manipulative, a cheater and a liar. NOW, if you're a person who knows her worth and knows that she deserves to be treated as a HUMAN BEING with respect, then vote for Dan. Dan, who was Blair's confidante when she was in the deepest emotional turmoil; Who wrote Louis' vows for him, who made Blair realize that she does not need a crown to be a princess because she already is.


Dair is only an imagination so please stop it. Chair is the future...go..go...go..go.. CHAIR....


there is a chance that the title could be throwing us off and it ends up dair, not what i want at all but don't assume because it could result in a major let down at the end of the episode.


Ok people....is not a whinning,chair is so high scholl, love is more than suffering: is passion,is now and trust the person by your side....think about this


Honestly? People really think that Blair would choose Dan over Chuck? "Retrun of the Ring" is obviously implying what it means "RETURN of the RING". When has Dan ever had a ring for someone else, let along Blair? And Lily chose Rufus before she knew that Bart was in the car accident. Chuck's Harry Winston ring has made an appearance in a promo, and Ed Westwick and Leighton Meester just did a press function with Harry Winston in Shanghai not even a month ago. It all leads up to the inevitable, and the most likely and wise deicision in the direction of Gossip Girl. CHAIR.


i hope chuck doesn't try to rape someone again in the finale.


Dair fans, stop your whining. This show has been and will always be Chuck and Blair. It is the only thing that has kept me, and probably a million other viewers, still tuning in. Blair said it herself in the last episode... the next time she says I love you she wants it to be her last. She didn't feel comfortable saying it to Dan a week ago, she's not going to feel comfortable saying it to him now, because she knows he isn't the last person she wants to be with. Sorry. Also, "Dair" fans supposedly all watched the show from the beginning (so they claim), so it's not like the big chunk of them will stop watching if she's with Chuck. That wouldn't make sense, since for the whole series it has always been her and Chuck. Dair fans are used to it by now, unlike Chair fans, who will be completely emotionally destroyed if Blair really doesn't love him anymore.


It's gonna be CHAIR b!tches. Deal with it.


Dair........Dair all the way! I'm sick and tired of blair and chuck everytime its the same story blair moves on and chuck needs her to help him scheme or "uncover someone else's scheme" like in s2 wit Nate and in s4 wit louis and now wit dan (yawnnnn). Give blair and dan a decent chance like the writers gave chuck and blair had theirs!!!!!!! Please let she pick DAN!!!!!!!!!


I don't care how all of this will be solved.
