How long do you guys think GG will go on for? Do you think the series has the characters and stamina to go beyond their university years, without it being tiring?
The only other character relationships left to be explored are Chuck and Jenny, Chuck and Serena (which I can’t see happening somehow but who knows) and Dan and Blair. Personally I think the show can just about get the characters to the end of university, and a Season 6.
Most series, when incorporating the whole of the original cast, max out on the seventh Season, such as Sex and the City, so even maybe a season 7.
And what about endgame? Who do you think will end up with whom?
Again personally, I think it will be Chuck and Blair (obvious one), Serena and Dan, Nate and Jenny (Taylor Momsen will be older and therefore it might not make Chace Crawford so uncomfortable) and then Vanessa with one of the reoccurring male cast member, or even a later introduction – maybe even Rufus (God I hope not).
From watching last weeks episode and the hint towards Lily’s illness and the rumour of flashbacks being incorporated into Season 4, could she perhaps possibly die? Thus leaving the door for Serena and Dan open again?. Although as sad as it would be, Lily is a likeable character and a death like that would be an interesting topic to explore. It would open up a different type of storyline for Serena other than seeing married men, and things involving men full stop. Although I would hate it, if it DID happen, and GG writers DID want to get Serena and Chuck together, a thing like that would make a foundation for a relationship between them, although they would perhaps figure out later that building a relationship on that and that alone doesn’t work, thus ending that little matching. Although I don’t think that would happen until Season 5.
A relationship like that could coincide with Dair, or be the relationship after it, although I have no clue as to how they would get Dair together. Putting my love for Chair aside, I think they would make a funny match.
I just hope they don’t try to give every single couple formula a try, because it is a little random and not to mention unrealistic.
But these are just ideas, and rambling. What do you guys personally think the series will go - couples, etc?Posted 3/25/2010 10:09:11 AM #
Chuck may not have his Bass Industry shares, but he does own a hotel, which is bought with Bass money. Jack will want a piece of it, I am sure. But totally agree with you - if Chuck does spend all his time with his ‘mother’ and with Blair left out (probably not trusting her either) it gives Jack room to move in. Which would make Chuck a little angry, and Chair needs some spice.
As long as they don’t drag it out for ages, when we know it is all so obvious, they could make it good viewing.
GG have good plots, but they just don’t execute them properly. Hopefully they do this one justice!Posted 11/27/2009 9:27:12 PM #
BFAN – I live in the UK (I don’t know if you do too) and I remember that story being all over the newspapers – I know it is totally off the subject of GG, but I totally agree, he looks like an 8 – 10 year old. I wouldn’t have thought his b*lls had dropped yet, never mind him being sexually active and producing kids But it just goes to show it is totally possible, as gross as it is.
PLOTTING IN PASTEL – I think us lot would do a better job of writing the show! No but let’s hope they do, do something a little less predictable and cliché. Totally agree with you, it will be merely an eye roll. It was one of the first conclusions people jumped to therefore perhaps a little predictable.
Which leads on to what ‘? COURTNEYYY’ said about Jack pretending that the woman is his mother. Sounds like something GG would do, but again I hope they don’t – it’s typical villain soap opera. But I’m starting to get that awful feeling too that they will do it . Perhaps she will try and get him to sign over her some of the shares to her, with a sob story about his father, and she’ll turn out to be Jack’s fiancé or something.Posted 11/27/2009 9:06:01 PM #
Good point Plotting in Pastel, lol. And it would only make sense for it to run in the family. But underage sex from Jack is one thing – however, how old was Chuck’s mother? To get pregnant at around the same age and then marry Bart? It wouldn’t happen; she would have had to have been at least sixteen – something icky about her sleeping with a young Jack, if not a little paedophilic, especially as she looked at least twenty in that picture Chuck had in his room of her.Posted 11/27/2009 6:31:58 PM #
Saw how small my font was - you would need a magnifying glass to read it! - So here you go again:
"Just been reading the main spoilers on the front Spoilers page on Insider’s website, and a lot of people are thinking that Jack could be Chuck’s father. Someone has however pointed out Jack is far too young to be Chuck’s father. That actor who plays him is 33 years old and Jack himself is meant to be a little older than 30. So how could he be Chuck’s father? He would have had to have been in the region of 10 – 12 years old when Chuck was born.
So if that theory is out of the way with, what other OMG scenario have the writers come up with? As we know it wouldn’t be something as sordid as underage sex (definitely not 12 years old underage sex anyway) but I’m just wondering what peoples’ theories are."Posted 11/27/2009 6:19:33 PM #

I'm disappointed too that there was no extended promo although I do think there will be some sneak peaks coming up soon. I just think the promo focussed too much on the spin off. Everyone watching it is a GG fan and some GG fans may not care to watch the spin off itself or care about Lily (I'm one of them). They should have done a promo for the majority. Instead of it being 90% of Lily, they should have split it 50/50.
Let's see what the Canadian promo is like - if there is going to be one!Posted 5/6/2009 11:56:20 AM #
Last season I hated Georgina's character but this time round I think I am starting to like her. If she and Blair put their differences aside and work together that will be a match that Gabriel and Poppy better watch out for! And totally agree with you GG_Bass, that is a brilliant line! Hopethe extended promo has some clips of the Nate/Chuck rivalry!Posted 4/28/2009 8:35:32 AM #
I think the limo scene was really important. I think it was quite clear that it was Chuck who had taken Blair's hand (His hand was on top of hers), and I think the producers had this done deliberately to show that Chuck is in fact ready for a relationship with Blair. Someone said this earlier on this forum and I totally agree with them. And the chemistry between them when he leaned in was so intense it was brilliant. Loved the fact they basically mirrored each other's actions was funny too. Think they will be great to watch, even as a couple.Posted 4/28/2009 8:28:06 AM #
