Tonight will air the last episode before the 5 weeks hiatus we’ll have to endure. How is going to end? Will we have a cliffhanger like last year in 4.17? Hope not, but I don’t know. I want to try to gather few thoughts on possible things happening tonight, then I’ll post something in the next days about my visions on what’s to come in my opinion.
Putting what we have seen in the second part of episode 5.15 and 5.16 and in the promo for 5.17, I really think tonight there may be some obstacle that could slow down DB’s action. I don’t think they will be over before episode 18 or 19. I give them max 6 episodes to be done, we know that they will end before the season finale, this whole arc has no logic, yet it has a sort of if we speculate on it in more closely. But that’s not why I started this post, I’m going to discuss this soon.
Last episode Cece died, in this episode we will see what she left to her family in her will. This reminds me of last time a funeral + will lecture happened. It was 2.15 with Jack and Chuck, accompanied by Nate and Blair too. This time there seem to be deeper secrets, but I have no idea which ones, to be honest.
For C&B, this episode will feature other kinds of things. In the Canadian Promo, Blair said her heart belongs to someone else and bla bla bla – I already told you I’m going to discuss this more in another post. There’s also some talking going on about Blair’s family possibly having to pay the dowry because of something Chuck or Georgina (since they are entitled to scheme together in the synopsis) did.
My guess is that: Chuck found out Dan sent the video at the wedding. I want to believe he did send it, but since it’s Gossip Girl you can expect that it turns out he didn’t (you need to think they could do that). Chuck thinks that this may stop Blair from being with him, but Ausiello already said that the video won’t stop them.
Then what would be?
I guess Georgina is bored and wants to help Chuck in a subtle way. I do not think she will reveal herself as Gossip Girl, nor that Dan will reveal her. I think someone else could receive the picture G took of BD on Valentine’s Day. The only person who saw it besides her and Serena, was Chuck. But she already did send him the details of who sent the video and I think this won’t bother Blair too much because she knows her wedding failed and her groom was a fake. Who could possibly stop them and how can Georgina do her job without sending the picture personally and be discovered as GG?
I can’t remember right now who wrote it, but I guess it were the writers on twitter, but Blair’s assistant Estee wasn’t done. At the end of 5.15 we see her covering Blair on the picture took at her wedding with Louis. She is clearly in love with Louis and if she finds out Blair is disrespecting her marriage, she may get mad and think “this woman doesn’t deserve him!” (lol well I would say that Louis doesn’t deserve Blair but that’s another story).
What if Estee receives the picture from Gossip Girl and blackmails Blair she’ll send it to Princess Sophie and Louis? Maybe she does it before asking her, because she is mad Blair dared to betray her husband. It can be possible, can’t it? That is the reason why Blair may have to pay the dowry. There could exist a clause in her prenup about affairs while she’s being married. There may be something stating that if she does this and there are proofs of this, she will have to pay anyway.
What if she told Chuck she couldn’t be with him because she wanted to protect him from this? She didn’t want him to pay the dowry to close the story (and of course the storyline on the show, lol)?
I have no idea if Estee is in the episode, but I guess she is (possibly) since they said her story wasn’t done. On SpoilerTV her casting call was rumored to be “recurring” so she may be in two episodes. We will see, this is just pure speculation.
There was another person claiming that Chuck will pay Blair’s dowry on twitter. It may be likely, if that’s the case. Because apparently none of the characters could afford the price because it’s too high, but he can because according to what Stephanie Savage said once, Chuck could never become poor because he has enough money to use in his life.
He could do this in secret and save Blair’s family from this, without asking anything in return. This season Chuck has shown that he just wants Blair to be happy, if this will ease her worries, then let be it.
Speaking of Chuck, I think the episode may end with a cliffhanger for him. Next episode Jack and Diana will come back, they may give him a call at the end? I really don’t know. About C&B’s future… I don’t know what to expect either. This is part of the other post I will write soon. You’ll have to wait!
We’ll see. Hehe.
