Seems like Juliet will be wreaking more havoc over the second half of the Gossip Girl season.
EW’s Michael Ausiello has spoken with Gossip Girl’s EP Stephanie Savage about what’s going on with Juliet Sharp (Katie Cassidy) and how long her plan to take down Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively) will last. This is what she had to say:
‘A good chunk of Juliet’s plan will be revealed by the end of the first half of the season, but elements of it will carry over.’
Sounds like we have a November sweeps cliffhanger on our hands, people. Also interesting is Ausiello’s blurb about two main characters joining Juliet’s ranks to bring Serena to her knees. With that little tidbit, I have a few thoughts in my head:
1) Who will be the ones to defect to the dark side with Juliet? Blair and Vanessa are out of the question since Juliet has burned bridges with those ladies and Chuck has his own issues to worry about. This leaves Nate (Chace Crawford) and Dan (Penn Badgley), which leads us to
2) Will the two ‘accomplices’ be willingly doing the dirty deeds or will they be conned into doing them? Juliet, as we all know, is very crafty with spinning lies. Plus, she has the two exes of Serena under her thumb, so anything is possible. Just know that we will be here waiting for it when the proverbial crap hits the fan.
In other GG news, remember Damian Dalgaard (Kevin Zegers), the drug peddling love interest of Jenny last season? Well, he’s heading back to the Upper East Side for one episode and returns later in the season for a multi-ep storyline. Zegers has been seen on the set filming some scenes according to E! Online, but no one knows if Jenny Humphrey (Taylor Momsen) will be a factor in Damian’s return. So, Hurricane Jenny bashers, put down your pitchforks, because she hasn’t shown up on the radar yet. We will let you know when to bored up your houses and boyfriends accordingly.
Now, some behind the scenes Gossip Girl news. Longtime couple Blake Lively and Penn Badgley made their split official, after being reported to have ended things in mid-September. Us Weekly reports despite the breakup, Blake and Penn are still cordial and get along fine on set. Now, if we can just get them to drop the “Dan pursing Serena again” story line…
What are your thoughts?
