Gossip Girl Season Finale Spoilers: Return of the ...

at . Comments

The CW has released its official synopsis for the upcoming fifth season finale of Gossip Girl, airing Monday, May 14. On that night, Blair Waldorf makes a choice between the two men in her life.

The episode title: "The Return of the Ring."

There's a lot else going on in this installment, which executive producer Josh Safran told us will include a major cliffhanger and forever alter the fabric of the show. Here's what lies in store ...

Blair at the Party
  • When Gossip Girl goes after Blair as she’s never done before, Serena admits she may have unintentionally played an important role in Blair’s latest nightmare.
  • Lily must make a big decision about the future of her marriage. 
  • Nate invites Lola to move in with him.
  • Finally, by episode’s end, Blair will make a choice between the two men in her life... will it be Chuck or Dan?

Sounds like an intense episode. What do you think turns Gossip Girl against Blair so dramatically? Does this mean she wrests back control of the site? And will Serena's role as Gossip Girl 3.0 be exposed?

Can Rufus and Lily survive, and will the lovely Lola accept Nate's bold request?

Finally, do you think the episode's title implies that Chuck's engagement ring will make another appearance? Will Blair actually choose Dan for the long haul if Chuck makes one final play for her affections?

Two episodes remain ("Raiders of the Lost Art" and "The Fugitives") between now and then, and the possibilities for our beloved characters are endless, especially in light of recent developments.

UPDATE, 5/2: There are rumors of a Derena reunion, as well as a Monaco trip. Serena's role remains unclear, but part of the finale does take place overseas, and at least two central characters are there.

UPDATE, 5/3: Apparently Serena is getting a "new" love interest ... who we already know. And the choice Blair makes will NOT be a cliffhanger. She will make a clear choice, one way or the other.

UPDATE, 5/11: According to new intel, someone will “see” Gossip Girl, while the final scene will feature two characters - one male, one female - and does not take place in New York. So ... there you go.

am i the only one that finds dair fans to have become ridiculous!? seriously before dair even happened they simply wanted more scenes and a relationship, because they knew chair was end game. they said " just give us a bone" and gg writers did, and a uproar was started. now that dair has happened they want a endgame and such... it's like seriously...? dair is just another obstacle for chair. do you honestly think that they are going to have chair from season one till still have chair feelings just to end in dair!? really!? you guys have no real reason to complain when blair leaves dan. im sorry... but the gg writers have done wrong... but not wrong enough to have something planned from season one till now... to end with something that has been only going on for one season. dan for one season... blair for like five episodes. BLAIR is in a confused state right now. She is RUNNING AWAY from her problems... writers even said that. Do Dair's honestly thing Dan and Blair are any differently then any of the other guys Blair dated? Trouble with Nate... runs to Chuck. Trouble with Marcus... runs to Chuck. Trouble with Louis... runs to Chuck. Trouble with Dan... no doubt, run to Chuck. Trouble with Chuck? What does she do? She gets with those men. But her heart always ends up with Chuck again. She ALWAYS goes to Chuck again. Honestly, if it was not a Chair endgame... they won't have made Chuck this big of a key role in her life. If it was a Dair end game... Chuck won't even be in the picture at all still. If it was a Dair endgame... Blair would be back to herself again again, Also, Blair won't have jumped from Chuck to Dan so fast.


TvFanatic, I would just like you to know that this poll is royally screwed up. I know of a group of ten girls who are at this very moment logging onto different computers in my school's library to vote for Chuck. They've already voted like ten times each! It's so annoying that you don't have anything to prevent that!!


I agree with you about Serena. There were information that Serena at the end of season will be with two guys, but now there is nothing about it. As if it will not happen, but why was it announced? So the whole season 5 is devoted to Blair. A Serena throughout the season 5 has no story, stand aside, which is pretty stupid. Since it seems there is nothing about the two men with whom Serena should be. Can anyone tell some information about it?
Thanks @Morgana!


i miss chuck and Blair so much it's not even funny, I've heard a lot of spoilers that would lead me to believe its a chair ending for season 5 but you just never know with this show! I can't wait for next episode just to see Blair scheming again, and admittedly, I love seeing lonely boy squirm at a sign of his loneliness. I've also grown to realize just how ugly dan's hair really is, at first I couldn't see it and would be so confused about all the comments but now I've realized it's too disgusting for words. He is so much hotter with the shorter hair! I don't know, as I havent really been paying attention, as to whether people are enjoying the Serena storyline, but I love it! and the jack bass diana Payne stuff too! There's some really good storyline ideas but I just hope they get executed well by season's end! anyway CHAIR FTW, I need them on my screen again, dair was good, I'll admit there have been some nice scenes between them but overall boringgggg!


i thought the finale will revolve around Serena. And they didn't mention anything about her love interest which they initially said would might be more than one. Guess it would still be a Blair show after all the misleading spoilers.


if she chooses chuck, then there is nothing to look forward to in season 6 if it is to exist'


dair for the finish line. that must suck for all chair shippers.


my heart wants dan but my mind says chuck. God , ihate that fellow.


I hope to god it's Chuck! But I'm scared they might try to put a twist on it and make it Dan =(


I know that books are 12. Or at least I've read 12.
