Glad to see Blair (Leighton Meester) is up and running, or you know, wedding-dress shopping, after being involved in a life-threatening car crash in Gossip Girl's fall finale!
The CW just released photos from Gossip Girl's Jan. 16 return and they confirm the Royal Wedding is still on! In the stills, Blair is seen meeting with Vera Wang, the designer responsible for the future Princess of Monaco's dress. The person she's brought along for fashion advice? Not her fiance Prince Louis (Hugo Becker) or her BFF Serena (Blake Lively)...it's Dan (Penn Badgley)!
So what about Chuck (Ed Westwick)? Is he dead?
Chuck's alive! Phew, that was a close one! (You weren't really worried, were you?)
Our beloved Basshole is seen hanging out with Louis, which is slightly awkward considering Blair decided to end her engagement with the prince to be with Chuck in the fall finale. Blair never got the chance to tell Louis that she was calling off the wedding thanks to the pesky paparazzi, so we're not sure what exactly is going on between Chuck and Louis. We're guessing it's not two guys hanging out watching football.
Also worth noting in the pictures? Blair's dress is different than the one we've seen in previous pictures. Could the "runaway bride" dress be a decoy? Hmmm...the mind reels.
What do you think of Blair's wedding dress? Why do you think she brings Dan with her to pick out her dress? Sound off in the comments!
