There are few things to talk about this week… I must admit I was sure I wouldn’t talk about the wedding again -not until few weeks before the episode would air- but let’s just say the fact that they’re filming it now made me rethink about my decision. I thought about some things and I’m sure I’ll change my mind by the time 5.13 will air, but who cares. I’ll share my thoughts with you and I’ll hope to give you a sort of plausible scenario.
What more? Ausiello didn’t give us much and what he said in his spoiler chat, were things I had already talked about in another spec. post (Blair possibly drunk pics) so I don’t know if I’ll discuss those, probably not. We saw from the promo that is Chuck and Blair that kiss, look forward to it!
1. Is this wedding really happening?
Like I said last week, I highly doubt it, but… there may be a twist. Let me explain.
They started shooting the wedding OFFICIALLY, yesterday. Some people were on set and took pics of – let’s call them with the name of their characters – Eleanor, Harold, Cyrus, the minions and also Dan and Serena. Leighton was also there. No sightings of Ed but late in the evening as someone said he was expected to shoot elsewhere. There was also a picture of Georgina dressed as an altar girl.
Like Missy also wrote in the comments, there are some pics.
Here are the flowers on the rails and stairs

Dan with Penelope Blairs Bridesmaid (GORGEOUS dress)
Blake with puppy (notice railings)
All of these preparations would make us think that the wedding is happening. Well. I can’t know what will happen, but some people who were there yesterday also said that they were welcome to stay and watch if they were silent. The same person who posted the pics also said that the doors of the church were open and people could get closer to the steps of the church.
The fact that it all doesn’t seem so secret, makes me think that this is another thing they want us to believe. What I mean is not that this is a foiler (lol they did it in 2.25 but now they’re smarter) but that probably there’s a big TWIST behind this shooting.
There are few factors I’d consider.
- Neither Ed nor Hugo were seen on set if not late. (Not totally sure about Hugo, though)
- Dorota was nowhere in sight and what is a wedding without her? Dorota could also give a clue in which period we are since she is pregnant too.
- Leighton had hair extensions. Okay anyone can apply those, but why use considerably longer hair extension if not to make us believe time has passed since the pics that are claimed to be from 5.12?
- Why was Ed shooting with the priest that same day Leighton was with Beatrice?
- Someone claims that about a month ago (around October 11th/12th) they saw Leighton in a wedding dress running in the Empire. I think this info may be partially legit because other people said they saw this happening.
- Georgina. This says enough.
- The casting calls for nurses, EMTs and wedding/party attendants were also made one month ago.
Georgina is surely trying to get at the wedding by being an altar girl. I’m sure Blair will see her once she arrives at the altar (already dread this moment) and wonder why the heck is she doing there. G for sure has a purpose, whether is revenge over the past (remember when Blair asked Vanya to pretend he was a Byelorussian Prince in 3.05?) or just out of boredom.
Let’s not forget in episode 3.05 Georgina also brings back Scott, Rufus and Lily’s son. What if this time G has come across some other juicy infos such as Louis not being the father of Blair’s baby? I can see this happening, but I’d like Chuck not be there if this happens. Would not be that great to know you are the father of a baby in the midst of your ex fiancée/love of your life wedding. I’d rather have him be in his suite and decide not to go to Blair’s wedding like also Rufus decided in 1.18, and then Blair running from her wedding (could justify the Leighton in a wedding dress going to the Empire sightings) to confess Chuck the truth about the baby.
I won’t start talking about the parallels once again, but this could work well with:
- 1.13 = Blair is possibly pregnant of Chuck OR Nate’s baby
- 2.13 = Chuck finds out Rufus and Lily had a baby 20 years before
- 3.13 = Chuck finds out he probably has a mother
Everything’s connected by the same wire. Family and legacy.
I would also love an explanation about the party shoot at the Empire one month before when all of a sudden appeared a “CB” monogram on the entrance of the hotel. The hotel set was also covered by a curtain. An extra said they were shooting a party, but what? Why is the Chuck Bass monogram on the entrance? What is Chuck celebrating?
Could also be that as some saw (there is no real confirmation) that Blair goes to Chuck’s suite and we have a scene quite like 3.22 with her showing him the bouquet quite as if she’s ready to get married, and they have a nice scene where she tells him the truth about the baby.
The other side of this particular speculation is that Chuck could not be there, but she could wait for him, but I’d love him to be there as if he’s waiting for her to come, in a way.
What if Blair gets married, though?
I thought about this today. We know that Father Cavalia is secretly having an affair with Beatrice. We have no idea whether Father Cavalia IS a real priest, or not. Well, what if he isn’t? What if he purposely was casted as the ‘priest who will celebrate the royal wedding’ but he isn’t actually a priest?
Could work well if you think about it. Beatrice doesn’t want Blair and Louis to get married as much as we do. If she sets this scam up with her secret lover, and the priest comes out in the moment of the wedding because of some plan he had with Beatrice, then there’s a scandal and Beatrice could count on that to destroy the wedding. What if Georgina helps? Considering how she is dressed and how they showed it without letting Michelle wear a coat on, is sure or so that she meets the priest before the wedding. She may also be the one to find out Beatrice and him sleep together, and decide to help them to dethrone Blair or better not let her sit on the actual throne.
Could also happen that they film the wedding and people can watch, but then it is cancelled because of priest controversy. I really have no idea. I guess we have to wait for more details to shape this speculation about this episode.
