We Weren't Prepared For This GG Preview

Can you get PTSD from a Gossip Girl promo?

Blair and Dan arguing

We've all seen the Gossip Girl wedding pictures, right? You know the ones I mean: with Blair (Leighton Meester) in that lacy sea foam green dress and Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick) in his white tux with coordinated bow tie. We were all prepared for a wedding between Upper East Side royalty.

But now, this...

Is it possible Gossip Girl officials and The CW were just tricking us? Were they trying to throw us off our game so they could toss a Lost-sized plot twist our way? This promo is intense! One second Blair is begging Chuck not to get on a plane — the next, you're hearing reports of a plane crash.

Plus, look at this picture! Blair is definitely being consoled over something.

Earlier today, we saw a headline speculating that someone might die on Gossip Girl. With just that headline to go on, a conspiracy was cooked up: Maybe Chuck and Blair were getting married because they love each other, but also so that they can scheme together to murder Chuck's father without having to testify against each other. Maybe it was a little far-fetched. But, it's Gossip Girl, after all.

Now there's that insane sneak peek. Are you kidding, CW? This is not okay.

It would also explain the return of Eric. For a while there, Chuck and Serena's (Blake Lively) baby brother, Eric, were pretty close. If something were to happen to Chuck, that would certainly bring Eric home for a while, right?

While the promo seems convincing, we're going to hold on to hope for a little bit longer. After all, filming a scene to not even use is a costly production. Gossip Girl may have a decent budget, but we doubt it's that big.

This is still too much to take. Can someone please hit up Gilt to get some to-go martinis and an order of truffle potato fries for us to stress-eat?

Good luck, Chair fans. It looks like you're going to need it.

I always assumed that Chuck would survive the plane crash, but it was shocking that this episode also featured the death of Bart. The way he met his end was very upsetting to watch, especially because Chuck and Blair did nothing. Even though he was pure evil, it would have been the noble thing to do. A coworker at DISH and I have been discussing the impact this event will have on Chuck and Blair’s wedding. I can’t wait to find out for sure, I am so glad that I won’t miss out on any of the drama of the last episode with my DISH Hopper. My DVR is set to automatically record the entire season automatically, the 2,000 hours of recording space is more than enough room. I would hate to miss out on the end of this show and the fate of Chuck and Blair. Hopefully Bart doesn’t continue to ruin things from beyond the grave and allows for Chuck to have the happy ending he deserves.

That's called a spoiler, Janey, and it's not very nice. Some of us prefer to live in the moment/episode.
