Baby Waldorf (Leighton Meester) is just the gift that keeps on GIVING in season five! And by that we mean... it’s basically the most frustrating Gossip Girl plot point ever! How many weeks can we hope for the best (Baby Bass!) but prepare for the worst (royal spawn...)?! How many weeks can we be taunted by AN ENVELOPE???

Well, as fate (and show producers) would have it, perhaps not many more! Joshua Safran confirms to TVLine’s Michael Ausiello that a definitive answer to the big paternity question is coming in the next couple of episodes, saying, “We definitely understand and expect people to still be wondering.”

Or, uh, more like about ready to crack, man! (Wait, does this mean that Louis (Hugo Becker) having possession of the test results didn’t give him the answer already? Does he just trust Blair? Or were they really ripped up? HUH?)

Perhaps the unveiling will land pre-bridal shower, pre-beginning of wedding hoopla in “All the Pretty Sources”? Though if that’s the case, Louis’ presence at the shower and the confirmation that Dan (Penn Badgley) and Chuck (Ed Westwick) will NOT be there could mean... gulp: royal spawn? Or maybe Blair’s just hiding from the truth!

And what about the bachelorette party photos that made the rounds a couple of weeks ago, making us question the safety of little bun-in-the-oven? We now know that there’s a TIME JUMP coming. Hmm... While that should quell our worries over a healthy newborn for B and Mystery Man, we’re still not so sure. For B’s sake, we’re just gonna head back into hope-and-pray mode...

In news UN-related to a future princess, word is that S will be revisiting her relationships past and studying up on the “successful” ones. Might that include Lonely Boy, who may or may not be reuniting with Blair? Or Nate, who’s currently busy with a certain “cousin”? Are there others than even land in that category? Oh, Serena, perhaps now isn’t the time for this exercise...
