Gossip Girl Season 4: What Went Wrong? (5/19/2011)The stories should be character-driven again. No more silly plot devices or stunt casting that lead the characters into situations that are not believable, even in the ultra surreal world of Gossip Girl. Plus, the cast needs to be an ensemble again. The Non-Judging Breakfast Club should have one last season together before they truly go off on their own. More about the "scandalous lives of Manhattan's Elite!" Dan and Blair together is not scandalous. Chuck and Blair together is not scandalous (thanks to the writers killing them) Hell, Serena and Ben are not scandalous. But Charlie/Ivy and Georgina all over the UES/Brooklyn--Now that is FIRE!!

CHAIR BABY!?!?!?!! (5/22/2011)
I watched the episode for the second time with the intent of trying to pick up clues and I really think those point to Serena. Given that the writers have stated in interviews that the Ben storyline is not over, but was concluded for Season 4 was my first clue. The rest of the clues were from Serena herself. Her speech to Charlie, the apology to the guys, her deciding on not going for a few days with Blair, and the fact that she choose herself--for once. I know alot of people make the argument that Ben and Serena haven't been together for a long time, but in the real world, it is not all that uncommon for a woman to find out she is indeed pregnant until after the first trimester (the first 3 months of pregnancy). Most women don't show the "visible" signs of pregnancy until after the first trimester. Not to be graphic, but her cycles could be such that not having one would not have been a cause of concern for her. and it is possible to still have a light cycle (although not very common, but it does happen and the woman still has a normal, healthy pregnancy) in the early stages of pregnancy, so that still would not have been a concern. But the clue that sealed it for me was when they showed Dorota coming through Serena's room and stopping at the door which leads to Serena's room from the bathroom and emptying that garbage pail. I would think that that bathroom, with its long sink/vanity, would have more than one garbage pail. So, Blair's pail would be at the entrance to her room as Serena's pail was at the entrance to her room.
I am sticking with Serena as the Mama-to-be because Blair will have too much going on. The writers said "Dair" is far from over. We got a clue of that from Vanessa's reference to "and not Serena" and the significant look on Eric's face when Dan said goodbye to Blair and Eric's comment to Rufus about Dan wanting to get out of the city and not because of Charlie. Plus, Blair does have a wedding to plan (although I don't think she will go through with it) and that is enough to occupy her time for at least the first third of the season. So, as much as I would love for Blair to be the mama and have a who's the daddy arc, I really don't think the writers are going to go there. That is too obvious. I think it is Serena's turn to have the "pregnancy scare."

Georgina!!! That is all. *giggle*
What the hell is Eva doing in the finale? (5/6/2011)
I was thinking could it be possible that Clemence Posey is listed in the cast credits because Chuck may go through a type of flashback, life-flashing-before-your-eyes type of thing like earlier in the season and if she does appear in the flashback she would have to be credited even if she physically didn't shoot scenes for the finale? (Wow, that is one long grammatically incorrect sentence. )
Just my thoughts...
