Okay, Gossip Girl affectionados. If you missed tonight’s season premiere then read ahead at your own risk because there’s a BIG SPOILER ahead.
Last season’s finale left us with a number of cliffhangers, but few were as buzzworthy as the positive pregnancy test that was left discarded in a wastebasket shared by Blair and Serena. The implication was clear: one of the girls was expecting, and tonight’s premiere wasted no time addressing it. A blast from Gossip Girl (who I’m seriously suspecting is a dumpster diving diva) put out an APB on the mommy-to-be, while both Blair, who was busy prepping for her nuptials to the prince, and Serena, who was working as a production assistant (ha!) on a film set, declined drinks at every opportunity. In case you didn’t know, turning down alcohol is code for “I’m having a secret baby!” in TV land. Alas though, the mystery was short-lived because Dorota of all people stepped up and (all too excitedly) confessed that GG’s text was referring to her. Turns out D’s expecting a second child. So, mystery solved. Or so it seemed. Just minutes before the episode wrapped up, as Blair stood all prim and proper for a photoshoot in her mother-in-law’s white wedding dress, her seamstress asked her just how far along she was. Blair feigned ignorance, but the seamstress made it clear: Measurements don’t lie, and apparently neither does B’s guilty face.
So, there you have it. Blair Waldorf is with child. Now the question is, who’s the father, or better yet, who do you want it to be? I break down the options (and my opinions) below.
The Prince — Blair’s husband-to-be would probably be ideal first choice as the babby’s daddy, and for that reason alone I’m inclined to think he won’t be. Though, I’m sure that won’t stop Blair from leading him to think he is once her secret is revealed.
Chuck — As Blair’s nuptials near, the dark prince might just be headed toward another downward spiral. Could the possibility of a child in his life finally help him clean up his act? More importantly, can you actually imagine Chuck Bass changing diapers?
Dan — So far, Dan and Blair have only admitted to locking lips, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we learn a lot more happened during their “friendly” meetups than was revealed at the time. Dan as a dad? Well, he’s certainly the most experienced of the batch.
Nate — I know what you’re thinking. This is the least realistic possibility. But you know what?In a world where Serena van der Woodsen works as a production assistant and enjoys it (I really can’t let this one go), anything is possible.
Okay, now it’s your turn. What do you make of Blair’s pregnancy reveal and who do you think will turn out to be the father?
