I really wasn’t sure what to write in this post, to be honest.
The reason is that as Monday approaches, I am more focused on the episode rather than speculation and spoilers. I am a person who loves facing problems as they slowly present in my face. Hence, spoilers like what will happen in 5.13 look so far in time for my ‘logic’, but I will try to give my point on that matter as much as I can. I doubt I can’t give a good opinion on it, it’s too far in time to even reason about it. We still have to watch 8 episodes.
And there’s a longer version of this post, actually. It’s in the video I posted here, I tried to talk about things I also wrote here in this post… hope you guys like it and that my voice isn’t too deep. lol

1. Ausiello Spoilers: will this wedding NO1CURRS about, actually happen?
I guess definitely not.
We’ve had a similiar situation back in Season 1 with Lily and Bart. As I pointed out elsewhere, Chuck/Blair and Rufus/Lily stories parallel in some way. In Rufly’s story, Louis’s role was played by Bart. Bart was the one-layered wealthy man we find having a secret affair at first (ironically in 1.02 Dan sees BL before everyone, like in 5.02 he learns about B’s pregnancy BEFORE everyone), then they officially come out as a couple in 1.11, when Bart asks her to marry him.
Back then, we already saw that despite Lily was engaged to Bart, Rufus still cared for her after years and she did too. They in fact sleep together in 1.18 before Lily gets married, like Chuck and Blair in this year’s finale. This happens at the beginning of 1.18, Bart calls Lily before their wedding and asks her to let go of the things of the past. He sure knows about RL, we know Bart had P.Is giving him private infos to ‘protect people’, he used to say. Chuck and Blair also slept together, and I suspect Louis knows, as well as his mother who let’s face seems like a female version of Bart.
Ironically, Bart and Lily’s initials are also BL, like Blair and Louis…
We learn in 2.13 that Lily has kept hidden to Rufus that they had a son 20 years before, to avoid the scandals. I am pretty sure Blair is doing the same to Chuck, she is lying (or either the paternity test was tampered) about the baby because if someone finds out the baby isn’t really Louis’, there will be a hell of a scandal.
Lily and Rufus eventually got married in episode 3.05, and also reconciled with their son, Scott. With Chuck and Blair we won’t have to wait 20 years to see this happen, I see Louis (Bart’s) position very clearly. Of course he is not gonna die, and I don’t want him to die to avoid the wedding, it would be too easy. I want Blair to realize she doesn’t want to marry him because that’s not what she wants. In my opinion as we saw in last week’s pics where Blair looks drunk and is being arrested, she may go to jail as Kristin -supposes or reports? lol-.
Like in Season 2 Serena got arrested in 2.23 and spent the night in jail, risking to miss prom, what if Blair spends a night in jail and risks to miss her own wedding? Would be hilarious, and would be the fate stopping her from marrying Mr Frog. Who knows.
I only know that reason why they “spoiled” there will be the wedding in 5.13, is that in reality Blair won’t go through it like Lily did. Lily and Bart were way older, and Lily also had married other men before him. Blair doesn’t aspire to be a ‘Lily’ and to have 5 husbands. lol. So I guess she’ll bit a bit coward before the wedding and either run away, or talk Louis about it. We still have time to think about that anyway, so don’t freak out if you see interviews of Josh talking about the wedding. He was mum about Chuck’s storyline and the pregnancy with EW. I think that is because THOSE are the important stories of this season, NOT the wedding. They give away stupid plot details, not important ones.
2. The Confusion of Filming Pics
Few days ago, on October 31st and November 1st, Penn/Leighton and Ed alone (but on the same set) filmed scenes next to St. Jame’s church in Madison Ave.
Would be alright if they filmed with one outfit in front of the church, but no! PL apparently filmed three scenes. One where she had an olive ponch, one where she has a blue coat, and one where she has a yellow coat. I don’t know you, but since there are only few pics of the blue and yellow coat, my guess is that the only real and future DB scene, is the one where she has the olive coat.
This comes from random logics in my mind, I figured they are trying to confuse us. Blair hasn’t the ring in the blue coat pics, and we may think she is calm with Dan outside of the church. But it’s weird, why would they obviously film a scene of her -without the ring- at the same place they filmed a scene for a previous episode, in front of the same church? This also goes for the pics with the yellow coat, there were only two of them, but apparently Leighton did film inside with this, and according to people who were there, she filmed with Hugo (Louis). Another idea is that they could use the church only that day, but whatever, I don’t have time to think about this and I’ll go with the easy idea that maybe the pics with the blue coat and no ring, are phony BTS.
Besides this, I think the scene we are sure PL filmed is the one with the olive coat. Someone leaked a paper with few infos (it was the permission to close the street to film), and it said that 3 actors would shoot that day. Well there were three. Two of them apparently shooting indoors watching as another one almost gets hit by a taxi. HERE’S the paper.
We have proofs that PL filmed inside, and Ed filmed in the street and was almost hit by a taxi. You can clearly see Leight’s expression of horror as Blair is watching Chuck almost get in an accident. Her expression changes as he reaches his car and doesn’t get hurt…
Moving from that, let’s talk about the other set pics from Nov.1st. Ed, Leighton and Blake were there shooting at the Hospital in Harlem the other day. Apparently Penn was also there, but I’m not sure since there are no pics and there are pics of him with his gf, so I really have no idea if he didn’t film anything. Anyway, also Matthew and Kelly were there, they took pics and you can see behind Kelly the scenario… they filmed in the morning and after 7pm.
As you can see from these other set pics, Blake changed into a gown she also wore on Oct 11th on set, that if I recall should be the other day they wanted EMTs and hospital stuff. Both EL were with hoodies and were covered by umbrellas, while Blake wasn’t… this would be normal if it rained, but there was a beautiful sun up in the sky. LOL. So my guess is that probably they wanted to hide EL, but they failed *lol2*.
Leighton seemed to have something light blue under her hoodie, in those set pics. Hospital gown? Her gown for that set? Ed was dressed like the day before, on the other hand.
So, who is getting in an accident? Is Blair going to lose her baby as they probably want us to believe?
What I can try to guess is that it’s probably Chuck the person who has an accident. We have prior events that could prove this. One is his accident in 5.01, if you reverse 0 and 1, you get 5.10 that is the episode they’re probably shooting (guess this first part of the season will finish with that one). We also saw that paper that said one person would be almost struck by a taxi. What if that is foreshadowing?
I have a reason why that could be. During Season 2, exactly on episode 2.10, Dan tries to get closer to Bart to unveil his secrets and write something to give to Noah Shapiro (that we also saw in 5.03). He finds out about the arse storyline that is supposedly closed after Russell went to jail in 4.22, and he wants to use this info against the Bass’, but he stops because Chuck tells him this would also hurt Serena if he does it. Other than that, Dan understands that Chuck and Bart’s relationship is damaged because Chuck thinks he killed his mother, and that’s why his father hates him (as Chuck confesses him when they are in jail in 2.05).
Dan decides to write his story about Charlie Trout, and he decides to give a copy to Bart so that he could try to get Bart understanding how his son is feeling towards him. Bart reads the story, called 5.19.91 (IRONIC also 19 and 91 are the opposite of one of another), and father and son for the first time bond (love that scene).
The point is. Chuck may be the one getting in an accident but don’t die, because of Charlie Trout’s story. In 5.04 he realizes he doesn’t want to be an unrependant bad boy anymore. He doesn’t want to end up alone hanging in a closet. He doesn’t want to face his fictional alterego’s destiny. What if Charlie Trout’s destiny almost happens because of casualities?
Chuck almost faces CT’s destiny, but in opposition to Dan’s book and to what happened at the end of 3.22, this time his friends and family are there for him? That’s a million dollar question.
