'Gossip Girl' Premiere: What the Viewers Are Saying
Spotted: Manhattan’s elite back on television. Only most of them aren’t anywhere near Manhattan.
Warning: Spoilers ahead.
The premiere of Season 5 of The CW’s Gossip Girl on Monday night left viewers surprised at some of the twists and turns in the show. Serena (Blake Lively), Nate (Chace Crawford) and Chuck (Ed Westwick) are in Los Angeles where Serena is working on a movie. Chuck and Nate are on a boat. Elizabeth Hurley stops by to hit on Nate. And there’s a party, natch.
Back on the Upper East Side, Blair (Leighton Meester) is planning her wedding to the prince. But the biggest surprise of the episode ends up being that Dorota (Zuzanna Szadkowski) and Blair are pregnant. The father of Blair’s child is not revealed...yet.
Viewers had plenty to say about the premiere episode on Twitter:
"Was that seriously supposed to be a "shock," Gossip Girl writers? It was so obvious that I freaking called it in May. Come on now."
