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?

The return of the ring actually can mean Rufus ring, or Bart's. Lily married Rufus because she thought Bart is dead, but now everything is rotating upside down. She can choose Rufus or Bart. Or Dans engagement ring for blair.
Other thing, about Blair and Dan. Why she's stealing Dans phone if she is going to choose Chuck? not logical at all. Except, she choosing Dan and want to win time, before telling him true about her diary.
About Serena, she may trickt Nate and Lola. She may have find out about their plan, and just pretend that she‘s no longer a gossip girl. Now, no one is thinking about her like a gossip girl because Nates and Lolas plan worked and first gossip girl massage was about Serena and Blair. So, like everyone knows it, Serena still love Dan, and perhaps she doing all this nonsense for Dan.
Serena and Dan will not be together at this episode. Why? Look promo more carefully: „Serena, there is no us“.
But everything is in writers hands. I don't care how all of this will be solved. ¬




I agree. I love Chuck and the fact is that Blair has destroyed his happiness, like the blondie that "saved" his life. I do like them together though. I didn't like that in the episode where Lola is in a play that is Dan's book, Blair "realizes" that Dan always loved her, when in reality Chuck always has. He thought she was saying no to him so he slept with Dan's sister and she gets mad then he meets a girl is happy and Blair wants him and destroys that relationship. Then chuck and her get together and something bad happens and then blair ends with louie and loves chuck but won't be with him. I blame blair. but Im all for Chair!


(cont. 2) is about. We want it at its root; scandals and betrayals. The reason we've been tuning in for years. So get off the "perfection" high horse and stop blaming someone for past mistakes, judge them on the present because who you are yesterday is not who you are today. I don’t give a damn for Dair or Chair. Chuck has been through more agonising pain than anyone on this series and he deserves to be commended for not letting it consume him. TEAM BASS!


(cont.) I don't like these double standards. Blair is no saint either. Everyone has done questionable things but if one were to look overall Chuck is the one that has progressed the most. He has done some remarkable things despite what he's been through. How many times did Blair screw with his feelings this season and in a moment of confusion he made a mistake that he apologised for and made amends. Season 1, 2 and 3 Chuck would never have done that, let alone agreed to raise someone else's child. Frankly, I'd be fine if Dan and Blair end up together (even if Dan is a worse person with her and has seemed more miserable than happy) as long as Chuck gets the happiness that he has earned this season by making the change: he is facing just as many painful trials as the past but his methods of coping with it are different. He has become someone worthy of respect. It's Gossip Girl people; we complain it's boring but want the characters to be perfect? Not how it works. Not what Gossip Girl is about. We want it at it's root; scandals and betrayals. The reason we've been tuning in for years. So get off the "perfection" high horse and stop blaming someone for past mistakes, judge them on the present because who you are yesterday is not who you are today. I don’t give a damn for Dair or Chair. Chuck has been through more agonising pain than anyone on this series and he deserves to be commended for not letting it consume him. TEAM BASS!


I see people stating that Chuck hasn't changed at all and that bothers me. Chuck has changed tremendously in the last season. Yes, he has made one or two mistakes along the way but that's what makes this change so real. If it was a miraculous change with no learning curbs it wouldn't be credible at all! He's learning as he goes. The one or two slips everyone jumps at the chance to say he's a monster but he is human; every other character in this show has made those mistakes this season. It's freaking Gossip Girl people, not One Tree Hill of the later seasons. If everyone was perfect what would be the point of Gossip Girl? Furthermore, give credit where credit is due. Dan also schemed throughout this season and personality wise he's become even more judgemental and cruel. The way he turned on Chuck the instant it suited him and let other people take the blame for his mistakes is wrong too. If Chuck had sent the video in during the wedding he'd be evil for some but Dan is "courageous"? I don't like these double standards.


OMG! Bart Bass is alive! I think that may be interesting for the whole plot!
I think, Blair will choose Chuck because she realizes how much she loves him and always will.
Dan will go to Rome and participe the fellowship. But who do you think, will be Serena's new love interest. They say that will be someone we already know. Do you think anybody will return to the show, someone like Carter? Or will it be Dan? And what do you think about Lily's decision about her marriage? I think she will realize how horrible she acted lately and how much she loves Rufus and that they are meant to be together. Maybe she will sale the apartement, or what do you think? Perhaps for now, she will quit her Upper East Side life? But in this case, i think it's too drastic for her. We'll see! I#m excited and i hope there will be a wonderful finale.


Nothing brings Blair and Chuck together like Bart Bass, whether he's alive, dead, or a ghost.


is is ok for us to disagree and to see the characters actions & intentions differently.i don't intend to change your opinion & you won't ever change mine. it is useless to argue about tv show. regardless,i hope the writers & directors can give us some good stuff til the end of the show.


As for Dan scholarship to Rome, maybe you're right, but then it looks like the end of a season 1, when Rufus went on tour, after the wedding of Lily and Bart! If Chuck is responsible for this and around Rome, a man is fighting for the love of his life - Blair!
