Is Chuck Bass' absence from hundreds of Gossip Girl set photos surfacing online a cause for concern? Given that the show is currently filming its series finale, the speculation is running rampant.
There are countless images floating around (which we have not posted here due to copyright issues) that appear to show the gang in a somber mood, with Chuck nowhere to be found. So ...
Is it possible Ed Westwick's character dies? Or we're led to believe that he might have?
Not so fast. Other witnesses claim a scene was filmed at The Empire rooftop involving Chuck, Blair and Bart, with a body falling off the roof - most likely Bart's. Do we know if this rumor is at all valid?
It's impossible to say at this time, but you can draw your own conclusion. All we know right now is that Chuck does not appear in any season finale set pics that we've seen. Plot details are unclear.
There are many plausible explanations for why this is, but we'd caution against believing whatever buzz dominates the day's discussion. If and when we know more concretely, we'll pass it along!
