Hollywoodlife.com: Will Chuck Stop Blair’s Wedding?

We went to a ‘Gossip Girl’ screening of the season premiere today and can we just say — wow! Josh Safran sat down and answered multiple questions about the upcoming season. Read on for spoilers!

Many of you are dying to know secrets about the upcoming Gossip Girl season premiere, particularly anything involving one Miss Blair Waldorf and her feelings toward her fiance, Chuck Bass and Dan Humphrey. And while we can’t give everything away we can tell you that she doesn’t have any scenes at all with one of these characters in the premiere.

Sorry Chair fans, those of you looking for some Blair and Chuck interactions will have to wait a little bit. While Chuck is forced to face Blair’s impending wedding when he comes back from his worldly travels, the two don’t interact in the premiere. She does however, have quite the conversations with both Prince Louis and Dan. Just because she’s not interacting with Chuck doesn’t mean we don’t get to see feisty Blair in full force.

That being said, will she continue with her plans to wed Louis? Executive producer Josh Safran says yes. “You will see all steps up to, at least, if not including, Blair’s wedding,” he teases.

And what about Chuck? Josh explains that the theme of this season, for everyone, is “growing up”. “They are all actually taking the first steps to who they are going to be,” says Josh. “Chuck’s journey, even though it looks like he’s a thrill-seeker [in the premiere], that opens the door to a new avenue for him, a new way of life, which isn’t what you’ve seen yet. But I think people will really like it. I think it’s the only actual step in the evolution of Chuck.”

Hmm, does that mean grown up Chuck wouldn’t get in the way of Blair’s wedding? And how does Dan play into all of this? “The triangle in our minds is sort of Chuck and Louis and Blair,” reveals Josh. “Dan’s role in it is sort of surprising … I don’t know if it’s necessarily romantic with Dan and Blair.”

And for those die-hard fans who are worried that Chuck, Blair, Dan, Nate and Serena will not be getting enough screen time with each other, do not stress. “We have our core cast more together than they have been since season one,” explains Josh. “We only have like five or six people [in some episodes]. You see all of them [the regulars] in every episode.”

As for the pregnancy question all we can reveal is you do know which gal is pregnant by the end of the premiere. And everything may not pan out in the way you, ahem, expect.

    For some reason I am starting to think it might not be Blair or Serena at all. Just because of what they keep on saying, unless it’s Serena but from what we knew as an audience she hadn’t slept with anyone since Ben…maaan can it be Monday yet lol. And Dair..eww lol.

      It has to be Blair, because I read somewhere that it will be revealed in the first half of the season who the babydaddy is and she’s the only one where it would be reasonable thrilling to find out who the father is! I mean eleanor is married to cyrus, lilly to rufus, serena hadn’t got a boyfriend for a long time… And dorota having another child with vanya wouldn’t be exciting!

      It must be blair. Those guys who were at the screening and don’t tell us are mean! Lol

    Io penso e spero che la ragazza incinta sia Blair e che il padre sia Chuck ovviamente!! Il fatto che Chuck e Blair non interagiscono almeno in questo primo episodio non mi sorprende, era prevedibile che gli autori, dopo lo stupido a mio avviso, addio della scorsa stagione li tenessero un pò lontani. Il problema è Dan ed un suo possibile inserimento tra i nostri beneamati, tuttavia io non credo che ci sarà un Dair sarebbe come andare contro la natura delle cose, xkè sappiamo bene che se Gossip Girl vuole continuare ad essere nei nostri cuori, bisogna che Chuck e Blair si riuniscano x sempre. La vera coppia del serial sono loro e dividerli definitivamente nn darebbe senso a tutto ciò che c’è stato nelle stagioni precedenti!! aspetto la 5 serie con ansia non sono più nella pelle……

    P.S. Grazie x tutte le vostre anticipazioni come sempre siete preziosissimi e aggiornatissimi e io vi adoro x questo XOXO

      Credo sia così anch’io. Se fosse Serena non sarebbe così eccitante anche se la peternità sarebbe comunque un punto interrogativo. Con Blair abbiamo più possibilità onestamente, anche perchè per quanto Serena sia amata penso che non sia una cosa che le farebbero… Non so, poi magari siamo ingannati dai promo, ma spero di no. Non vedo l’ora che sia lunedì così finalmente lo sapremo!

      • Lisa says:

        Ma tu sei italiana?!?

      • `toomuchpurple says:

        Si haha anche tu? Questo blog è gestito da 3 italiane su 5 persone. XD

      • Lisa says:

        Ma veramente? Ahahaha pensavo che foste tutte americane xD Ma sapete tutte benissimo l’inglese! Da dove venite??

      • `toomuchpurple says:

        No solo una è americana ma al momento non scrive mai 😦 un’altra ragazza è pure Europea. Io sono del sud Italia, le altre due ragazze una è del centro, l’altra del nord. Non vado nei particolari solo perchè non ho idea se vogliono divulgare info personali ^^

        Ti ringrazio per l’inglese! Io frequento la facoltà di lingue e scrivere su questo blog aiuta moltissimo la mia pratica.

      • Lisa says:

        Io sono dal nord e studio l’inglese da quando sono nata, e devo proprio dire che in italia sono poche le ragazze dove non si nota la loro nazionalità 😉
        Quindi vediamo tutte la season premiere martedi invece di lunedi- che bello lol

      • `toomuchpurple says:

        E’ vero! Anche perchè a meno che non si facciano degli errori grammaticali riconoscibili, non riconosco mai chi è US/UK e chi no. XD Infatti pensavo tu fossi americana anche dal nome!

        Beh si guardare ogni show il giorno dopo *piange* però visto che le mie lezioni non sono ancora iniziate almeno la premiere la guardo live. Devo scoprire questa cosa del chi è incinta e sono sicura che se vado a letto lunedì mi sveglio alle 2 con il pensiero di vedere l’episodio XD Tanto vale vado a dormire ogni notte alle 2 e qualcosa quindi non mi cambia la giornata. lol

      • Lisa says:

        Ahaha troppo forte! A me piacerebbe troppo, ma faccio ancora il liceo e il mio prof di latino ci fa fare un test proprio nella prima ora il martedi 😦 ma mi sa che mi alzerò alle 6 solo per aggionarmi su gg!
        Ma c’é sul web il live stream? Un peccato che su fastpasstv o tvlinks la qualità é pessima, quando sono stata negli states quest’anno é stato favoloso vedere gg in HD!

      • `toomuchpurple says:

        La scuola -____- odio. Per fortuna quando ho iniziato a vedere GG nel 2008 l’avevo già finita, ma mia sorella ha il tuo stesso problema >.<

        I link si trovano poche ore prima dell'episodio di solito. Male che vada ci sono links per scaricare la puntata dopo 10 minuti che è finita, quindi nel caso non mi preoccupo. XD Di solito se non ho visto la puntata live la guardo su altri siti… a volte fastpasstv non funziona e dato che mi serve il video per gifs e altro, mi conviene scaricarlo sul pc.

      • Lisa says:

        Beata te! Io ho iniziato a guardare nel 2009 quando sono stata a ny, prima mi ero sempre rifiutata a guardarlo in italiano. Ritornata in italia non l’ho guardato più perché sul mio pc non funzionava bene. Ma quest’anno appena ho ricevuto il mio macbook mi sono fatta 4 episodi fino alle 2 ogni notte per ricoverare xD sono diventata proprio dipendente, ma mi piace troppo!

    ,,Dan’s role in it is sort of surprising,, perhaps he will make them realize that they are made for each other (I mean Chuck and Blair) yeph… I know…but I have still some hope for two of them.

  4. grace says:

    Honestly, i don’t buy the Chuck/Blair/Louis ‘triangle’ because i always thought the wedding storyline,the book and the pregnancy (possibly) would be related to Dair,sad but true,Despite Louis insecurities over CB (CBL triangle), Chuck would not be the real threat (‘Dan’s role in it is sort of surprising.’).
    But the good thing is there will be a closure in episode 17 or 18.

    • `toomuchpurple says:

      Yes, me too. But I think Dan’s role may be of someone with whom Blair may confide? Her only friend? I highly doubt Serena will know about the possible pregnancy soon, since I see that maybe both Serena and Chuck will find out at the same time, and Serena will be “betrayed” in terms of friendship, because her best friend has kept her in the dark about a thing that isn’t really easy to hide. Also, with all those synopsis “Dan seeks help from Chuck; Chuck seeks help from Dan” that he may be the person who will make CB get closer again, if the paternity is revealed and Chuck doesn’t feel like talking to her. He would be right to act this way just because I think he would want to know if he’s going to have a baby with Blair ofc. Also what the writers said on twitter about “unrequited love” and that not all the relationships need to be romantic to go on.

      • grace says:

        Yes, the good friend confidant.I don’t think the writers will leave him just a friend that will help Chuck and Blair get back together because after all, the Season 5 will have 24 episodes.
        The ‘unrequited love’ thing could be even DB happen will be a one-sided relationship.I mean, one person will have the feelings and the other person not so much.Reminds me a little bit of Seth and Anna in ‘The OC’.

      • `toomuchpurple says:

        I think Dan may try to get to Blair’s heart somehow, considering that there’s this chapter in his book all about her, but she won’t fall for him. Until Louis is gone which I have no idea when he will, I don’t think we should worry much about Dan being a threat for CB’s future reunion. Uhm I think we should see how it will evolve between him and Blair through the episodes to guess more about this matter
