In some cases, I suppose that episode titles can be considered spoilers. Take the Gossip Girl season 3 finale title, for example: ‘Last Tango, Then Paris’. In this case, it’s the literal truth. The CW has sent out a press release that the first two episodes of season 4 (premiere date still unknown) will be filmed and set in Paris. Blake Lively, Leighton Meester and Ed Westwick will all be filmed in the City of Lights in early July, which means all three of their characters will be making the trip to France.
While we only have a very loose plot right now to go on, the CW has said:
In the season four premiere, GOSSIP GIRL will find a radiant Serena van der Woodsen (Lively) and Blair Waldorf (Meester) enjoying their grand and romantic summer in Paris. However, Serena and Blair will be in for a few big OMG surprises when a friend from home mysteriously appears on the scene.
Since there’s no mention of Chuck, does that mean he will be the ‘friend from home’? If he and Blair don’t reconcile in the season 3 finale, will he follow her to Paris? So many questions, so few answers. But at least the producers are thrilled about getting the opportunity to film in Paris:
‘Paris has always been the ultimate extension of our GOSSIP GIRL world — the home of high fashion, Michelin star restaurants, chic night clubs, and Blair’s favorite sweet (macaroons, of course!),’says executive producer Stephanie Savage. ‘We’re thrilled to be able to share with our fans that this fall GOSSIP GIRL is going to Paris. We hope that they’ll come along with Blair, Serena and Chuck for the first two episodes of season four.’
