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.

There really IS no competition if you've seen this show from the beginning. CB are soul mates. They themselves have said it during some time in the series, and nearly every cast member has said it. There is no one else for each other.


I'm TEAM Dan/Blair.I have to believe she likes having someone who will be there for her ALWAYS, someone who reminds her she is strong beautiful independent, someone who is her equal. It beats the hell out of being traded for a hotel.


I want blair to pick chuck but then I want chuck to reject her! She has continually rejected him like FOUR TIMES in one season!!! it is about time chuck regained some of his manhood and let blair know that she is not the only woman in the world! lol


I have no doubt in my mind, that it will be Chuck. Chuck has spent the ENTIRE SEASON growing up, getting rid of his mother chucker ways. If she chooses Dan, chuck's story line won't make sense. Chuck is now worthy of Blair, and has been for a while. Chuck is no longer a Basstard, and the minute Blair sees this. Goodbye Muppet, Hello "Devil redeemed". Also, I do believe the HW ring will appear in the season finale, BUT not has engagement. I believe you will see it in Chuck's SAFE. And Chuck explains it to someone, possibly Nate, that he went back after the accident to repurchase it. This way Chair engagement is saved for final short season 6. CHAIR REUNION FOR FINALE!!!!!!! I say YES!YES!YES!YES!YES!


blair hasn't been happy any episode with dan! first it was bad sex. then she didn't want be divorced.. then last week she didn't like him being more popular.. and people that say she should end up with dan get a life.. it doesn't work its not even about chuck have you noticed blair has no scenes and no friends other than derota.. because her and serena will never ever be the same after what she did to her and if people reply to this and say well serena and ante it was season one and serena stayed well away after her mistake and was 16 there now 21!.. i want chuck and blair together not necessarily now but for people think she should be with dan its ridiculous.


@Olivia, thank you. YOu are so right. Blair has been going nutso and Dan has been there for her like a good friend. Helping her to sort herself out so she can return to being HBIC and link with her true equal


Hopefully she does not choose Dan but if she does we all know it won't be the final choice. The only way that would be the final choice is if their plane crashed on the way to Rome or wherever and both or just Blair did not survive.


DAN ........... DAN IS the reason that blair still happy and healthy .. so .. he is the END ... DAN we love you


Chuck FTW! I LOL a little every time people say how happy Blair is with Dan. She's actually seemed pretty unhappy most of the last few episodes, hasn't she? I mean, between the bad sex, their flop of a party, her pushing him away when he tries to kiss her, then freaking out over him getting too much attention and just seeming totally lost and confused, I mean... I'm not saying that's all his fault, I think a lot of it is her just being kind of nuts, but I wouldn't call this relationship a rousing success so far.


Its funny how people actually think Dair will get marry? Will they even survive next season is the real question Dair fans should ask. I say No.
