GOSSIP GIRL – Predictions for Tonight’s Finale *Spoilers*

May 17, 2010 Leave a comment

Gossip Girl – although critics are (rightfully?) saying this season hasn’t quite been up to par, tonight’s episode of Gossip Girl is undoubtedly a hugely anticipated finale by its fans.

We’ve had Ausiello saying that the episode is “really, really good” (http://ausiellofiles.ew.com/2010/05/10/gossip-girl-season-3-finale-spoilers/), and a certain UK ITV promo stirring up, well, let’s say, emotional responses from fans.

(Promo below).

Apparently the promo’s been pulled from ITV after the GG creator intervened saying that it ‘misled’ fans. I can see how this is a distinct possibility – all of it looked like it could have been wildly taken out of context. But still.

Not only this, but Ausiello’s delivered some juicy spoilery details to leave us fans guessing before tomorrow. Here are my predictions based on his reveals – let’s see how they match up after tonight!

  • Threesome – All I can say to this one is: ‘WTF’ and ‘OMGG’. With a conspicuous lack of Hilary Duff to fill in withDan and Vanessa, my mind is blown for who it could be. My imagination, no, but my logical brain… OK, fine. If I had to guess I’d say Dan, Georgina, Serena. No wait – Dan, Serena, Blair. No wait – Nate, Serena, Blair. No wait – Nate, Dan Serena – ah crap, I give up. But first guess = Dan, Georgina, Serena. (Yeah, Georgina’s actually coming back. I’m not just making that up.)
  • Departure – Easy – Little J. Just take a look at my previous article: No worries, though, she’s only off to boarding school for a little while. She’ll be back in the flesh next season by November sweeps.
  • Mini time-jump – WTF does this even mean? Are the characters going to be flashed to the future? No, because then Jenny couldn’t come back from boarding school next season. Flash back for Lily/Rufus (again?) I don’t think so – been there, done that. Who knows.
  • Engagement ring! – with Serena’s Dad – aka AthinVersionOfAlecBaldwin out of the picture, my theory of proposal to Lily is out the window. Nate to Serena seems only logical to me – or in a seriously twisted world, maybe Blair/Chuck.
  • Shooting – I don’t know, but for some reason this screams Nate to me. There have been a few rumours of him leaving (yeah, like that’s ever going to happen), but I don’t know… I’d guess either him or Chuck. My money’s on Nate.
  • Birth – Dorota’s baby. Duh.
  • Shocking OMG! Twist – OK, maybe not but… Blair-Dan, Blair-Dan, Blair-Dan please.
  • A pair of spectacular Jenny smackdowns at the hands of Blair (Leighton Meester never better!) – Yeah like that was never going to happen this season.

Let’s see if I’m right tonight . . . and let’s see what Gossip Girl has to say about it.

Gossip Girl – SPOILER ALERT – Where’s Jenny…?

April 14, 2010 Leave a comment

According to my absolutely favourite TV-spoiler-God, Ausiello, it seems that Little J will be MIA from Gossip Girl next season. http://ausiellofiles.ew.com/2010/04/09/gossip-girl-jenny-taylor-momsen-spoiler/

Apparently it’s for “creative reasons”, and has something to do with the supposedly “major” finale this season – according to a source down by the set: “you’ll see that we’re doing something VERY big with her character.”

So what’s up with Little J? Is she gone forever? Ausiello tells us this is for an “unspecified” number of episodes, which does seem to imply that she’s coming back. But the even bigger question is – will we even care?

Jenny is undoubtedly extremely annoying this season, but I have to say, I’d be surprised if the show were dropping her. (Despite how much I hate that straggly bleach-blonde hair). But speculation about next season aside, what Ausiello fails to report are some of the more, let’s say, unreliable sources spanning the internet about Little J’s “very big” event this finale.

Here is what an anonymous source sent to this website: (http://www.tv.com/gossip-girl-tipster-offers-possible-pregnancy-spoiler/webnews/55973.html)

                “Hi, I would just like to inform you that Gossip Girl filmed in my school, St. Francis College.

                “They filmed the season finale over a two day period and used one of the lounges as a waiting room, the school chapel, and a part of the larger lounge as a hospital room.

               ” Eric and Dan were involved in the storyline as well as Serena. I’m positive that it has something to do with a pregnancy because decals were up in the room that they were taping indicating that “so and so” donated a wing to that particular maternity ward.

                “I am 100 percent sure this is the [show] doing that bombshell storyline.”

Thoughts? This could be totally fake, but there is a possibility it’s true – and is it Jenny? This would surely be a big storyline, and the people most likely to be involved in a Jenny-hospital (pregnancy?) storyline would be Eric, Dan, and Serena. And some sort of fiasco landing Little J in the hospital could put her out of action for a few weeks next season… and maybe even make me eat my words after my blind-item pregnancy spoiler speculations.

But whatever the heck is going on, you know you love it. XoXo.

Katherine Heigl’s Departure from Grey’s: Is She Sincere?

April 13, 2010 Leave a comment

Recently, fans of Grey’s Anatomy were shocked to see Katherine Heigl departing the medical drama and, well, not coming back.

Heigl’s contract was not due to finish for another 18 months, but after asking repeatedly to leave, the show’s creator, Shonda Reimes, finally let her go – despite the fact that she was scheduled to appear in the last five episodes of the season.

The media world was awash with rumours over Heigl’s sudden departure – with reports ranging from a mutual parting to Heigl just not showing up for work.

An interview with E! managed to clear up a lot of the confusion – and partially helped the shocked fans. I know that as a dedicated Grey’s watcher, I did feel that we deserved a little more than just a – ‘hey! What just happened there?’ storyline.

In Katherine’s interview with Ausiello, (which you can read in full at http://ausiellofiles.ew.com/2010/04/07/greys-anatomy-katherine-heigl-cover-story/), Heigl appears to mainly be milking the new-mommy card, dressing uber-‘uncelebrity’ in “capri jeans and a purple cardigan, with her newly darkened locks pulled back.” She humbly goes through the interview, essentially apologizing for her controversial six years at Grey’s, and trying to explain why she just ditched the show and her fans.

Reading the interview, I have to say, I was only partially convinced. I have never been a huge fan of Heigl’s – she can come across as kind of obnoxious and ungrateful, at least to me. I mean, when you’re earning that much money and get to be a huge star, why would you complain? But she did, on Letterman back a few years ago about the “hours and storylines” (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T4JS0MVUweg), and again, this year, in a huge scandal for the Grey’s production team. You can see the interview below – her big moments come at around 1:07.

The scandal with this interview was all because actually, the 17 hour day was supposedly down to her – allegedly, production had to reshuffle the times to accommodate Heigl’s busy schedule promoting The Ugly Truth. Hmmm… but apart from that, I have to say, the rest of the interview is rather funny, and she obviously has wit and intelligence – just maybe a bit of a diva attitude at times.

But despite how you might feel about Heigl, there definitely is a shift in feeling to the Grey’s cast without George or Izzie – although it’s not necessarily bad. Just different. What do you guys think?

Spoiler: Surprise Pregnancy – Is it on House?

March 28, 2010 2 comments

http://ausiellofiles.ew.com/2010/03/22/blind-item-surprise-pregnancy/Ausiello, TV Spoiler God, recently made a post about a shock pregnancy on a hit hour-long drama that’s “totally unexpected” and from a show with a “rabid following”. Needless to say, this has led to a freak out on the internet. It’s easily the most-talked about post with over 1,400 comments.

Recently, Ausiello also tweeted that it is on one of these 9 shows: Grey’s Anatomy, House, Bones, Chuck, Gossip Girl, Smallville, NCIS, Glee, or Lost.

So who the hell IS it?

After banging my head against the table for a couple of minutes, I read through a few of those 1400 comments, and decided to think about it rationally.

It’s not Lost (not returning in the fall), it’s not Glee (already done the baby thing twice this season), and I’m guessing it’s not NCIS, Smallville, or Chuck, only because they don’t seem to have as insane fans or featuring on Ausiello’s blog, and Gossip Girl doesn’t seem to be realistically be fitting a baby into any of their storylines – plus they’re not popular enough to warrant such a huge spoiler.

But the last three – the Big Three – Bones, House, and Grey’s are definitely the frontrunners. Why? Easily they are the three most heavily featured shows on Ausiello’s column, and they also have the most enthusiastic fans out there.

For me, the show that’s standing out is House, with Bones in second. Shonda Reimes confirmed that there would be no Mer-Der baby back all the way back in January on Grey’s, and I think it would be a stretch for them or anyone else in the cast to be preggers – they kind of already did the baby thing this season with Mark’s daughter. On Bones, the only one I see this happening for is Brennan, (Angela’s not big enough for this spoiler) but it’s also unrealistic – I mean, if Brennan can’t work, where’s the show?

Which brings me to the cream of the crop, House.  No show gets as much attention on Ausiello’s column, and no show has as rabid fans. Everyone’s first guess would definitely be Cuddy – with new bf Lucas, she looks set to add another to her brood. But there’s just one problem – she’s way too obvious. Plus isn’t she infertile?

Next up is Cameron. After leaving, it would be a way to bring her back  next season (which she is already confirmed to be doing) – and there could be a debate over whether it was Chase or House’s baby. But I also think that would be really obvious, and not at all the best storyline for her character.

Which leaves… Thirteen. I’mnot one of Thirteen’s biggest fans – I hate the way she took everyone’s screen time, has melodramatic storylines, and is generally super annoying. Which really to me makes her only a more likely candidate. Think about it – she would be totally surprising, and no-one would know who the father is –  Foreman? Or dare I say it… Chase? Plus, due to the character’s somewhat unpopularity, and fact that technically her and Taub’s fellowships are up , it may give the perfect excuse for her to take some time off – so in that respect, maybe I would like it to be true. And it wouldn’t be the first time an Ausiello Shocker Blind Item has been about House (Kutner f

But whatever happens, you know it’ll be talked about here.
