Gossip Girl Season 5 Finale Speculation! What Does “The Return of the Ring” Mean?
Though it seems to us that perhaps the least of Chuck Bass’s problems after this week’s SHOCKING revelation (in Episode 22, "Raiders of the Lost Art") that his long-dead daddio is still alive would be running after the heart of Blair Waldorf… but all signs are seeming to point in that direction!
E! Online teases that the Gossip GirlSeason 5 finale will feature the BIG decision for Blair that’s long-been anticipated and dreaded by Chair and Dair fans the world over: Does she want to be with Dan or Chuck?! And what’s more, the episode is coyly titled “The Return of the Ring.”
Dun dun dunnn!
We don’t have to dig too deep to come to the most obvious conclusion – which is that the “ring” in question is none other than that Chuck got for Blair and which made its debut in Season 3, riiiight around the time that C-Bass deflowered Jenny Humphrey… and then got shot in Prague. In Season 5, he still has the ring but, with a pregnant Blair on track to marry Prince Louis, Chuck decides to return it to Harry Winston.
But with just two episodes left, that must mean we’ve got serious Chair action coming back into play, if B is to be re-swept off her feet by her once-dark knight. (Wishful Thinking Moment! Perhaps the actors were tasked with picking up some bling for such an occasion while they were in China with the famed jeweler?) We know the connection is still there — c’mon, it was undeniable in this week’s ep, and even Dan Humphrey knows it! — but there’s a lot of ground to cover in a short amount of time.
Is Chuck’s totally-freakin’-messy family dramz going to remind him that all he really needs is Blair Waldorf? And is her inability to return Dan’s “I love you” a sign that their ‘ship is headed to Splitsville?! WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN?! We’re dying in anticipation… and more than a little worried that this decision will be held-over in the most epically-painful cliffhanger ever.
