Been wondering how that semi-steamy romance between Dan (Penn Badgley) and Blair (Leighton Meester) was going to play out in the long run? E! Online has new spoilers for the rest of Season 5 that indicate there might be some trouble ahead…

Now that Chuck (Ed Westwick) is caught up in drama of the maternal nature, the two members of the UES’ latest ‘ship will face a different challenge. E! Online says, “Something is going to try to come between Dan and Blair soon… but that something isn’t Chuck… It’s also not Blair’s desire to retain her Upper East Side status,” as teased for Monday’s all-new Episode 22, “Despicable B.”

Conspiracy theory time!

We’re thinkin’ it’ll have something to do with that lil’ tease from exec producer Joshua Safran way back in January that foretold upcoming drama surrounding Dan’s second literary offering. Yes? No? Don’t forget, there was also THIS one earlier in the month via TVLine: “look for Dan to make a pretty big professional sacrifice during May sweeps – in the name of love.”

Perhaps Lonely Boy’s editors are looking for something written from the “inside” of the UES’ most unlikely couple.

Also on the subject of love, E! dishes that Serena will find a love interest – her first real one of Season 5! – before the finale. In fact, “she may even have more than one,” they say. Finally! Maybe a lil’ action will keep her from making more of a mess as Gossip Girl for the rest of the season.
