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

by 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.

I can't believe Blair traded Chuck for a speech! If that was me and the love of my life traded me for something as petty as a speech at a college event I would never be able to forgive that. Blair knowingly went behind Chuck's back and tricked him into kissing a guy on the pretense of playing their little game when in fact Blair had more sinister objectives behind it. I honestly don't understand how Chuck forgave her so quickly for that, he should still be complaining about it now and bringing it up whenever something doesn't go his way as if the fact that he got traded for a speech gives him some sort of higher power over everyone else. He was used as if he was property and just another pawn in one of Blair's games. I hope he finds true love away from Blair because she is toxic and I could never forgive her for what she did.

Serena never be a bridesmaid at the wedding of Dan and Blair. Nate will never be the best man at the wedding of Dan and Blair! Chuck will never be a guest, and Lily and Rufus will never organize a wedding of Dan and Blair! BECAUSE MARRIAGE WILL NOT BE!

Nice you said Dan and Blair CAN BE ... But there are already the best and most beautiful couples in the series. You know and everyone knows it - SERENA AND DAN, and CHUCK AND BLAIR! These two pairs are the beginning and the end of the series. Serena and Dan does not lie to each other, you have not watched the show from the beginning. Serena and Dan have confidence in one another that they built during the 4 seasons! I do not believe that Dan and Blair fan really think that the two of them get married? And who is going to be a bridesmaid, maybe Serena and Nate might be a best man? Is it Chuck may be a guest at the wedding, and Rufus and Lily would to organize a wedding? Only you dream fan Dan and Blair, IT WILL NOT HAPPEN! Serena never be a bridesmaid at the wedding of Dan and Blair. Nate will never be the best man at the wedding of Dan and Blair! Chuck will never be a guest, and Lily and Rufus will never organize a wedding of Dan and Blair! BECAUSE MARRIAGE WILL NOT BE!

I am a man too, and because of that I am a big fan of Serena and Dan! ENOUGH WITH "HOTEL"! View this episode again, and do not talk nonsense. No one else traded for the hotel!

The right choice will be Dan obviously ! Im sorry for chair fans, they want their coouple back again together coz they have invested so much time shipping them...but hte truth is there is nothing more to get from them, the entire aspect of their relationship has been explored and the result of it : it's toxic. So maybe Blair will get a bit of the Bass taste before the series ends, but it will just to make here realize Dan is the best for her. Well I must admit all what Ive just said is the logic outcome, but that could totally be called into question because of the producer change. No matter what, Dair FTW !

I find it sort of sad that some Dai fans actually think Dan and Blair are going to be endgame.... I mean, I don't know, maybe their love for Dair has clouded their judgement or something but if you step back and take a look from a non-biased point of view, Chuck is going to end up with Blair. The couple is iconic, even people who don't watch gossip girl know about Chuck and Blair. Whether you like it or not, they are not going to end the show with Blair with some random guy like Dan or Louis. They want to end the show spectacularly, with a bang, not fizzle out like it would if they ended with Dan and Blair. There would be an overall feel of disappointment and it would be very underwhelming if they did finish with Dair. They're just not going to do it. Regarless of which the writers like, They want the best for their show. I'm not really concerned who Blair ends up with at the end of this season. Because it will all change within a matter of episodes once season 6 starts.

@ggbabe, i want Dair together & i'm a men (that's why i love Blair & i want she to be happy, and Dan could make her happy,), and i think no a men who like chair (because chuck always make her hurt) & i think anyone who ship chair is a crazy girl, because chuck is a jerk (he alway slept with a prostitute & he also slept with alexandra for destroy dan career), ok HE PAID HER DOWREY FOR HER, but 2 season ago he sold her for the hotel.
if you really love someone do not ever hurt her, that's the name of true love.
who love abusive relationship i think their a crazy
