Looks like things are about to get real personal for Chuck Bass in the last part of Gossip Girl’s fifth season…
A deceased member of the GG clan is back in the UES filming scenes for upcoming episodes, and it’s not recently-departed CeCe Rhodes! The returned-from-the-grave character is none other than Bart Bass himself, who was spotted on set earlier this week. E! Online has now confirmed guest star John Robert Burke is indeed making his return, but in what capacity remains to be seen.
As you’ll recall, Bart’s been known to haunt Chuck – both literally and figuratively! – over the course of GG’s run. He’s the father that Chuck could never live up to, and the father that he so very much wanted to emulate… But he also has been know to take the form of an ACTUAL ghost! In short? Dude left one heck of a lasting impression on his young son’s psyche… (Oh, Chuck!)
Will he be back to haunt Chuck in his ghostly form? Or merely in the flesh in flashback mode? We’re guessing with all the Bass family secrets set to be spilled when Jack Bass and Diana Payne return, it’ll be more of the latter! Either way, we smell some serious incomin’ family dramz for Mr. Chuck.
