Noticed this dialogue from Serena during the Finale Promo: "You have the power to reveal Gossip Girl's identity all this time."
Here's my guess who is Gossip Girl:
1) The story how she had Gossip Girl's laptop on the 100th episode was not anymore explained. Probably there's no story to tell there as she's always been Gossip Girl.
2) She mysteriously disappears, most probably to update her blog.
3) She's never been a subject of GG.
4) Dan probably knows its Georgina all the time she's spending time with her.
5) The smile on Georgina's face on the promo probably saying my job here is over.
I agree with you. It feels like a big serving of just desserts for Bart. Since he came back, he did nothing but moan about how Chuck isn't a real man because he has feelings but, in that moment, the only thing that could possibly save him was Chuck's mercy for his father... Looks like Chuck just passed the Bart Bass Diploma for 'how to become a real man'.
(Hopefully the sarcasm here is clear but, for the record, I do think that Bart's ideas about what defines a 'man' is incredibly warped and everything Chuck said to him on that rooftop was right)
@ToBe, Of course not, but I thought you were being sarcastic, or maybe you forgot relationship of Dan and Georgina from season 3, and nothing more! And my commentary about this episode it will be, take time!
@Fatin, Again calling me for no reason, and then they were wrong when I answer to them! You do your job and I'll my - you continue to hate the way I defend Serena and Dan, and I'll defend Serena and Dan more and more!
@Em I see what you mean. Chuck had a few seconds to make a choice, and after everything Bart had said to him in the previous moments, he couldn't have done anything differently. It goes without saying that he comes out of all this (and is indeed) the better man, since he didn't kill Bart (or anyone else, for that matter); he just didn't save him. I just thought that all the build-up around Bart's storyline, when it was all leading to his death, was, as you say, the easiest option. On the other hand, it did make sense to me that in the end, what didn't save Bart (and made him lose the battle to Chuck) was the thing he always said made Chuck weak: compassion.
"in what paralel universe does a guy write that much shit about the woman he loves and thinks it´s ok to publish it just because in his head his point of view is the universal truth? and in what altern reality does that woman marry him after he had the guts to play with her feelings and publicly call her "nothing" (among other things)? and you think him writing nice and nasty things about Serena simultaneously justifies it? what sane person do that to someone he cares about, let alone love? and for God´s sake what woman with the tiniest bit of self respect marries him? Nooo writers just no!"
Is anyone really surprised that, in those few seconds Chuck had to make a decision, he didn't try to save him? I'm certainly not. I probably wouldn't feel any compassion for Bart Bass either. (So whilst I get the point that it would have shown Chuck to be the 'better man' if he'd helped Bart, that isn't necessarily how emotions work - people don't always do the right thing).
I think the writers created a bit of a problem for themselves with the Bart storyline in that they made it seem like he was indestructible. He clearly had to go, else no one would get their happy ending, and killing him off was the easiest option. I didn't like that they brought Bart back in the first place so I don't care that he's gone, but I feel like it was a waste of ten episodes just for the sake of OMGs (which were much more NO-MG than OMG anyway). They could have done something else instead. As for whether Chuck should have helped him - probably. Would he have been able to save him - probably not. Does it make Chuck just as bad as Bart that he didn't help? Absolutely not. Bart ruined (and even took) lives. Chuck didn't take Bart's life, he just made no attempt to save it. Bart tried to kill him, threatened his girlfriend, had his best friend thrown in jail, and his stepmother was clearly scared for her own safety (as well as everyone else's). Is anyone really surprised that, in
I WANT in the Blair Bithces team!
I think in a way it was the right decision not to save Bart. If Bart lived he would just still keep torturing Chuck and Blair. It was the only way for them to get their happy ending. A man that paid someone mom to stay away and then tell their son that she died is not a good man. Bart had no reason to do what he did so you all need to stop saying Chuck should have save him because Bart was never going to change. Death was fit for Bart!!!
I may have missed the first 20 minutes because I was frosting christmas cookies, but Blair calling Ivy a goat was the best! Not sure of the context, but awesome!
Imagine yourself with the most evil person in the whole world. He is about to dad, crying for help, would you help him? I know I would, because no matter what he is a freakin human being and you are just as worst if you are not helping this person.
If Chuck had saved Bart or tried to pull him up Bart would've told him he failed the last test before pulling him down with him
This episode got the best reviews of the season and the fans are divided. Go figure. The film noir music while out of place is a Chuck and Blair staple they love old movies it wasn't the Star Wars theme it's mostly likely the dramatic score from an old Hepburn or Hitchcock film. As for Chuck's decision to let Bart fall after everything Bart has said and done Chuck was justified in not helping him to give him a hand because Bart would've taken Chuck with him
@puppybunny1 Yep, I agree with you too. For a moment, I thought Chuck was gonna grab Bart's hand, and when he didn't, it was kind of a letdown. To me, by killing him, the writers took the easy way out, instead of making C&B having to deal with it in a more "adult" way, like they had been doing up until that moment (which would also had proven that Chuck was more of a man than Bart would ever be, especially after his "being a man" speech).
AND BART BASS IS SUCH AN OLD FREAKING WRINKLE CRAPPY DOUCHE-BAG!!!
i on the other hand think dat bart dead is should a CELEBRATION!!!!!!!!!! who cares chuck/blair let him die.he is the villain,he deserves dat,or thr won be any happy ending!!!!!!!OK PPL!!!!!!!!!!!! hope to watch it before 21st dec!!!!!such a big fan of CHAIR!!finally the moment of life!! for them to be marry and FOREVER
Chuck could have had another cell phone hide in his pocket to take Bart's confession, Lonely boy could have written a Bart's profile that spell everything, Chuck could have had proof of his father trying to kill him (what about the pilot?) or even the father of princess something could have had microfilm of his own... it's even bad tv show not to have one character like Lily not doing copy of the microfilm (or even Ivy)think about it, Lily is all about leverage and she doesn't think of doing a copy and just throw it? that story-line was lame from this point.
@Em I agree with everything you said! The music in that last scene was ridiculous. I know it's an "homage" to some films the show has been making reference to since day 1, but still.
The rest of the episode was great! I've always rooted for Derena, but I, too, had been wondering if there was a way for them to finally get back together after everything they've been through. It turns out I enjoyed Dan's awful actions being a wake-up call for Serena, and for himself, too. They somehow triggered a much-needed character development.
As for Chair, they're always amazing together. Their scheming has got too far, but then again it is what brought them together in the first place, so it's nice to see it ending the same way it started.
I remember reading somewhere that before airing the last episode, a "behind the scenes" special would air. Does anyone know if that's still happening?
I agree with Z. I am disappointed that Chuck/Blair let Bart die. Chuck just proved that he is just as bad as Bart.
Besides, GG is all about the skim, it would have been much better having a real good skim to take down Bass than having him kill (let to die) by his son and girlfriend, it was pathetic and I agree with Z about it.
Except for the part with Blair and her bitches, it was bad. At some points I thought I was watching Dallas...there was no tension, everything was so expected and so disappointing, hope the GG story will be good on the final episode (finally ending! yeah!)
@DreaXOXO Ok, we`re totally on the same page! ;)
Maybe, at least, all this show is just a creation of the lonely boy. Every character is created by the mind of a young writer of Brooklyn and there isn't Gossip Girl as blogger but just the voice of Dan Humprey as writer who is writing the final chapter of his book.
Good episode but it felt like Blair's dream never ended, what was that terrible music at the end??
