The previous episode left us with more cliffhangers than we could bear with the main drama being Chuck and Blair’s car accident. We were unsure if Chuck would survive and if Blair was still pregnant with a baby that Chuck offered to help raise. Not only that, but Serena and Nate expressed their determination to end Gossip Girl’s reign for good.
