Sorry for the delay, but I’ve had parents from North of Italy at home and I couldn’t focus on writing the post. Now they’ve gone away so I’m going to gather my ideas.
What I’m going to discuss today is the new Ausiello spoiler, and the new Kristin spoiler. Well by K not both, since the first is about Louis being the father and contrasts with the Ausiello ones saying he really has no idea. I already speculated and told you several times how and why the baby it’s Chuck’s, so I think isn’t that exciting to repeat things all over again (at least for me). What I want you to remember again, is that you need to have patience. This is just the beginning *speaks in an Eric Northman from TB voice* and there’s time for stories to unfold, and for CB to have rebuilt and what we all hope will happen. I wouldn’t worry this early, and neither should you imo. But that’s just my opinion. I’m open to talk if you ever want opinions and reassurances. I’ve got a bit of optimism to give!
Second point I’m going to discuss is Louis. Not a boring essay, of course. What I’ve been asked was to discuss whether or not he has a dark side. I won’t write a long point on this issue because I don’t care about him either way, but his persona influences CB now, and so he is important to them as a prop. He is a guest, so I will just try to figure how he may gtfo. lol.
Third point is slightly different. I know this is a Chair blog, but I wanted to speculate about this issue anyway. My third speculation point will be about Ivy and how I had some interesting theory about her, Chuck and Dan.
Let’s hope I am able to write a reasonable post and not write too much. lol.
1. Ausiello and Kristin’s spoiler chats
Today (well yesterday for you since when I read that was 3am my time) we’ve got the latest news from Ausi. He talked about a kiss between a couple with passionate fans, and that it will be followed by something he didn’t spoil, and that he doesn’t know who the daddy of B’s baby is. Supposing the couple may be Chuck and Blair, will or won’t they?
He talks about a kiss. Well, Josh 2.0 said that the triangle would be CBL. Okay, the third member of the triangle doesn’t for sure have to kiss or have sex with the female or male contended. In S1 for example, and also in S2, the Chuck/Nate/Blair triangle went on with Chuck pining for Blair after episode 2.20. She was with Nate, and she only had scenes with Chuck pretending they were better off as friends. Here’s happening the same thing, with CB trying to be friends while she’s with the new Nate, aka Louis.
We have many options open for this spoiler.
- Chuck and Blair kiss, it is a real kiss. – Wouldn’t be opposed to this at all, of course. But Blair has already cheated on Louis in the finale with Chuck, don’t think she would do it again.
- Chuck and Blair kiss, it is a dream. – This is more likely. Josh said there will be a Blair dream in 5.07. I don’t know when this kiss occurs. Could be, like it can’t be. As someone rumored recently, Blair may dream she’s marrying Chuck and they kiss in the dream? No idea.
Outcomes aka the “followed by [spoiler alert]” part:
- Blair slaps Chuck because he kissed her. Hell, as much as I’d love they would kiss, don’t think this theory is likely. I can’t see Chuck bothering her again like he did in the past, but if he does, she may give him a slap.
- The baby kicks! This would be too cute for words. Like someone pointed out in the comments, Blair would feel the baby kick when Chuck is there with her, just like episode 4.06 when they shake hands and she feels the handgasm *lol*. Time for the baby kicking would be right, they should start after the 5th month.
- An apology? Kristin said that Chuck will apologize to Blair. I guess he will apologize for hurting her in the past, probably excusing he’s put himself in the way of her fairytale, first with Nate, then Louis. But what if he apologizes for a kiss? Uhm.
Regarding paternity… Paternity is still open. As we see in the 5.05 Promo, Louis finds the test results. Not sure he’s gonna open them, but if he does he may be even more doubtful of Blair, causing his mommy to do the contract. Or maybe Louis’s mom knows that the baby may not be Louis’?
Either way, patience. This revelation has happened too fast. Again I don’t think it is DEFINITIVELY. Big omfg happened usually around episodes 7-9. Look at last year. In 4.07 CB had sex on a freaking piano when we thought they probably came to a point of hating one another. This also happened in S1 with the limo sex, then in S2 on 2.08 with the “Maybe in the future” (parallel with the If two people are meant to be together scene from 4.09), to say two occasions. The 7th episode is usually expected to be the one with the highest point of drama, it is meant to be a turning point of actions to set the finale of the first half of the season.
Wouldn’t it be a twist if Chuck knows then? Or better, if he knows around ep 9 or 10? The more they drag the paternity, the more people will hang and wait, at least the patient ones. I think the late he finds out, the better. Contrary to what some people think, the more a secret is kept, the more exciting is for me when everyone (or the direct interested) finds out.
2. Is Louis just Kermitt the frog, or he could be a Darth Vader in disguise?
No offence to Kermitt the frog, but he looks like Louis. The boring prince Louis. I usually despise guys like him, they bore me to death, and I am unattracted by people who are too good to be true. Blair claims he is perfect, but what if he isn’t? He clearly isn’t.
Everyone has flaws, even the perfect Michelangelo statues of the Renaissance Era. Louis has to have a magic wand or something to be perfect, or a good foundation. lol. Because I don’t buy it. I may be too diffident as per usual, but on a show like Gossip Girl none is a saint, above all guest stars. Most of them come to cause drama, and Louis is no exception since he’s causing boring drama to us.
Like Eva last year. Girl was so pretty and angelic, and seemed perfect, but she had one hell of a secret. She was a prostitute. Wow, for a girl that good and angelic that double life seemed weird to me. Never I would have expected that she was an escort. She didn’t have the face… just like Louis.
Here with Louis is different. He’s a member of the royal family, hence he is wealthy and I’m sure he’s not a gigolo. We’ve seen his sister flirting with Father Cavalia in 5.02, so we saw she also playing a double-faced game. Louis must be something dirt in his past, or his present. Remember he is moved by his beloved mother who is so protective of her son. Remember Louis came to New York after months he hasn’t seen Blair, and after few days marries her.
Doesn’t that sound strange?
The justification could be that in royal families time you propose doesn’t count, but this is not the Louis XVI era with Marie Antoinette forced to marry a man she didn’t love. We are in 2011, and I guess engagement work differently.
Sure Blair has met Louis months before, but all she knew since the moments they met were short, is his name and that he is a prince. WOW. She knows everything!! LOL. I know that she can know him better after they wed, but no. There are some couples that spend years together without getting married, and they decide to break up for disagreements. I don’t think a few months relationship would last either. Just like Ranieri asked Grace Kelly, Louis is going to ask Blair to lose everything she’s earned in NYC before she moves to Monaco.
An upset Blair is quite surprised to find out she has to move to Monaco to give birth. What did she expect? She’s going to marry a French prince, not an American prince (is there a prince in US, besides Prince the singer? *lol*), it’s natural that she would end up living in his hometown, duh. And she’s gonna lose her college, and her friends. Yeah. Because yes there is Skype and things like that, but skin contact is another thing. For experience I’ve had many friends living far from me or parents in another region of my country that I have not seen for years. Whenever I met them, I feel that even if they tell me how their life is going via phone or texts, that I’m missing something. That they’re different people, they aren’t the ones I used to know. People can change in a small span of time.
We’ve already seen from the Pilot how Serena had changed in the time Blair and the others hadn’t seen her around. This will eventually happen again, I’m sure of it. Blair has to think about her decision to marry Louis, properly. Above all since Louis’ mom is going to tie her down with the contract.
3. Ivy. Charlie. Who’s that girl?
Starting this point saying that I only posted this in between the spec because a bit of Chuck was involved.
After I read GGWriter’s answers to some tweets, one about whether Ivy/Charlie’s surname Dickens was chosen on purpose, I did some research. I went to google and looked for infos about Charles Dickens. Why CD? Well, first because he’s the first famous person who’s named Dickens that came to my mind. Second, Charlie/Charles Dickens, the name of Serena’s cousin wasn’t chosen just because either. Third, because if you cross the two fake identities (recurring theme of the 4th GG season) you have Charlie Dickens and Ivy Rhodes.
What has Charles Dickens to do with our show? Well, besides the name, there are some facts about his life that reminded me of both Chuck and Dan related to Charlie.
Basically Charlie Rhodes/Ivy Dickens is a both of them, I figured. Charlie Rhodes is the girl with issues who’s being kept away from her “toxic” aunts and cousins. She lives a normal life, apparently. I have no idea if her mother lets her daughter live with the money CeCe gives to her, or Charlie lives really as Season1 Humphrey would. Ivy Dickens is an actress. She wants to be famous perhaps, reach her goal to act. She isn’t familiar with the wealthy world, but she dreams it (remember in 4.18 and 4.19 how she’s giddy to see couture dresses and stuff).
Charlie Rhodes is Chuck, Charles. Ivy Dickens is Dan.
Charlie is the wealthy girl who also has some issues. We know anything about her besides the name, we should also see her on screen to check how she is in reality, whether she has these mental issues her mom claims she has.
His relation to Charles Dickens may be with the characters he has written, besides that with the name. Chuck is Dickensian, he was addressed that way in Season 3, if I recall (in 3.12). In that episode Blair says Chuck is doing a Scrooge act (if you’ve read A Christmas Carol you’d understand). He also said “How Dickensian” to Dan in 2.14 when he told him Rufus had gone to orphanages. CD got married with one woman called Catherine. They had a son named Charles too. Louis in this last episode asks Blair if she wants to call the baby Charles since she seems so attracted by that name. Don’t know whether or not this makes sense.
Dan is Ivy Dickens for a reason, that is the surname. Charles Dickens was a famous author from XIX century. One of my faves, must say. He worked for newspapers and wrote an anonymous novel, just like Dan did. He also loved a woman who didn’t love him back, and got married with one he liked but not the one he wanted. He spent his last years alone, not ending some of his main novels. CD is also known to be the first writer of the social novel, the novel that criticizes society and is sarcastic about it. Exactly what was in Dan’s book apparently.
They both are connected, you see. The Dickensian reference was also connected to Dan finding out he has an older brother, and could be connected to Chuck and Blair’s baby, his being in the dark about it.
There are also other funny things about Charles Dickens. His initials are C, like Chuck-Charles, and D, like Dan-Daniel. Funny, isn’t it? Also, Dickens has written for a newspaper called “Master Humphrey‘s Clock“, and he has also written a memoirs of a famous English clown called Joseph Grimaldi (Louis’ surname).
I don’t know if all of this makes sense, but this is my opinion. Tell me what do you think!
