Gossip Girl Discussion: Let's Talk Jack Bass


It's been a lonely few weeks without our favorite Upper East Siders gracing our TV screens, so I am relieved not only that they were back with last night's "In the Realm of the Basses", but that they were back in full form.


Some things I am thankful for:

-Though we all knew it was coming, Serena and her fugly emo boyfriend Aaron (sorry, but you know I'm right) broke up and it was oh so sweet...and all the better that he didn't even appear.

-Jenny finally remembered how to act like a redeeming human being. She even resisted the temptation of reclaiming Queen Bee status.

-Ed Westwick knows how to act high and depressed so well that I fear he has some real-life experience. Or he's just that good of an actor. Either way, he was that good in this episode.

-More screen time for Nellie (and who would have guessed that Nellie has some game of her own)!

-No Vanessa!


However, I think what is most in need of discussion (and I'm not talking about the Lily/Rufus love-child plotline as frankly, the "surprise child" story line is somewhat unimaginative, especially since we just saw it a month and a half ago on another CW show - 90210) is the episode's cryptic ending and subsequent previews for next week.


What exactly happened between Blair and Chuck's uncle, Jack Bass? What can they never tell Chuck about?

I fear that Blair slept with Jack. I hope it was because he is a jerk and the only way he would help her find and bring back Chuck was if she would sleep with him. I am devastated that Chair is not together. They are such a great couple and Leighton Meester and Ed Westwick are phenomenal together. Hopefully Gossip Girl sees that and keeps them somewhat together!

I have a really bad feeling that she slept with jack too. if its true then chair is OVER chuck would never forgive her for that. Ever.
i just hope she didnt sleep with anyone, that would be awful! especially not chucks uncle! plz do not ruin Chair!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i remember reading a spoiler about a scandalous romance between one of the girls and an older man...it was speculted that the girl was vanessa, but after this episode i think it might be blair and jack!!! NOOOOO!!!
if the GG writers break chuck and blair up there will be no reason for me to watch GG again!
btw dan looked like a little kid in comparison to serena in the scene where they get busted at dans house by rufus!

Blair is not going 2 sleep with Jack..... Shes not stupid and why would she??the only reason she would do that is because of Jack not wanting to give the Bass company in Chucks hands unless Blair sleeps with him

its not about her being stupid though. its about what the writers decide to do with the show. if they want to stir up trouble betweeen chuck and blair they can do whatever they like even if it means blair sleeping with chucks uncle! what other possible secret could blair have with jack....unless the writers want it to look like blair and jack have slept together when really its nothing... i hope its the latter!and if she did do something that would hurt chuck, hopefully it was for the reason theCWking suggested, or because she was blackmailed into it...i hope she didnt willingly do anything that would jeopardise her relationship with chuck!
btw sorry for being so blunt by mentioning the writers rather than the show as if they were real characters! i know "blair" wouldnt sleep with jack...but realistically it is a show and anything can happen!

HAS ANYONE SEEN A SPOILER OF WHAT BLAIR AND JACK ARE HIDING! WE NEED TO FIND THIS ONE OUT ASAP!!!

look why would Blair sleep with Jack just for fun if its obvious she loves chuck.She wouldnt just sleep with jacks uncle for the fun of it.And they dont have a secret or are hiding something im almost sure that its because shes being blackmailed by jack and is only doing this so that Chuck can inherit the Bass company.

they have a secret because she said so at the end of the episode. and the thing that they are hiding is something that she has done.
chuck automatically inherits the bass empire anyway doesnt he.
whatever they are hiding it's not something that is on-going, i.e he cant be blackmailing her. ill tell you why.
Blair said: He cant know about what happened on new years day.
so that means she is talking about something she did, i.e one single event, that only her and jack know about.if it was something ongoing or he was blackmailing her, she would have said it differently or she would not have had to say that at all because if he blackmailed her into sleeping with him, she would be the victim with him giving her the orders, whereas in that scene it seemed as though he simply had something on her and she was the guilty party who is dependent on his trust. what ever they are hiding it has to be something that blair did as a one off involving jack or something jack caught blair doing.
i cant imagine jack asking blair for sex, she's a kid compared to him....he cant be that much of a jerk, im sure he can get it from somewhere else anyway.
i just hope it doesnt have anything to do with blair and sex, she is not serena!

ok i take back some of my analytical gaga, however i sound right on blair and jack sleeping together....i just watched the promo for the next epsiode on gossipgirlinsider.
looks like jack may just be blackmailing blaie into sleeping with him, there is even a scene where chuck say to jack: she would never touch you and jack replies: you should ask her!
and then theres a scene where blair is meeting someone in a hotel room and a hand holding a bunch of flowers appears, so you dont see who it is but you hear jacks voice saying: were going to have a great time tonight!
i hate the writers of GG if they break chuck n blair up by making her sleep with jack!!!!

Fear not, CWking, he's definitely still in the show, though he was inexplicably missing for the entire episode (as was Vanessa, who to clarify, is sadly also still in the show). Maybe they both went on vacation.

i think Blair sleeping with Jack would be the obvious answer so for that reason I hope it's just some kind of a distraction for what is actually going on. Maybe Chuck will think that's what happened but then Blair won't be able to tell him the truth for some even bigger reason. Like the time that Serena "killed" that guy and told Dan she slept with someone because what she actually did was even worse.
Also, I don't think it was really that unimaginative for the writers to pull out the "surprise child storyline" as they are somewhat following a storyline that has already been created. If anything maybe the 90210 show is scooping the Gossip Girl books. By the sounds of a spoiler that I was reading about their child, it'll be a little more exciting anyway :)

I think that Blair is sleeping with Jack, but only because she is being forced to because it's obvious that she loves chuck, and maybe she's just doing it to keep Jack from doing something that will hurt Chuck or something.. but still..I don't see why Chuck would be mad at her because first off, when she told him that she loved him he simply said well thats too bad, and left..and secondly when Blair was with Nate, she slept with Chuck..so yeh; i think that if it's really that, Chair will find a way of working around it..and i'm pretty sure that while Chuck was away, he was sleeping with all kinds of girls, its who he is..but yes, it is his uncle.. but hmmm loli can't wait for next week !

I heard that Blair is getting back together with Nate in 1 of the next episodes.So maybe chuck broke up with her after he found out she slept with Jack.And then she got back together with nate.

Its most likely that they slept together but i dont get it! why would she sleep with a man twice her age and he is a total sleezball! he gives me the creeps.I mean if she did sleep with him what was she thinking?He's no Chuck Bass!
Anyway they will probably keep us guessing for the next couple of episodes. i doubt they'l do the big reveal next week. I guees it'l keep us watching.

I think it has to be something other then the fact that they slept together. That would be just too obvious. I thought the whole almost killing himself and Blair coming to the rescue was perhaps a little overdoing it.

So, basically Chuck and Blair are going to get back together no matter what I mean the writers would actually have to be insane because like half the people who watch the show are watching it for them. But the writers have to drag out the getting back together because like if they get back together to easily people will get bored with it. But yeah Jack Bass is just going to shake things up a little bit and there will be this whole scandal and stuff but nothing will happen cause Blair isn't a slut so she def not gonna sleep with anyone but Chuck cause she loves him like duh. And I'm totally predicting that like she'll be going to Jack's to like sleep with him or whatever but then like Chuck will be like I love you don't sleep with Jack and so she won't and it'll all be good. :D

oh but yeah DAN AND SERENA back together so goodi like never really have liked either of them but i think that both of their characters were just sooooo awful when they weren't together and like they're adorable together so yeahand the whole Lily Rufus thing just needs to go away like its fucking with the good Dan Serena stuff and yeah i watch 90210 also and the whole secret child thing was not good its just annoying because its gonna fuck up the Dan Serena stuff again which is sucky but on a complete other matter uhm NATE AND JENNY like although its kinda creepy cause like Chace Crawford is like 22 and Taylor Momsen is only like 15 but like I don't even care I don't like Vanessa she whines to much uhm I don't really think she fits and like the only time i liked her was like the episode where Chuck was trying to buy the bar but i would never want the Blair and Chuck thing to end but I think he's the only one she would be even kind of good with

Ok, Gossip girl has one method they use for drama. The issues all have to with all the interrelated relationships/conflict. When they find the adopted kid how much you want to bet it will be someone we already know in the show? My money is on Nat:))))))) It would be messed up, but then against what relationship is not messed up in this show.

Thumbs up to no V and Aaron. Also, I barely noticed Nate was gone, honestly. He's pretty, but a bit dull.
Collock...Nate? That's gross, dude. Serena slept with Nate. The show may be scandalous but incest is a little too much.

@gossipgirlforever: Sooooo true!
I'm afraid they slept together but if he blackmailed her into it, that is totally implausible. She's not the person to be blackmailed and to just go with it. Remeber Vanessa's try? Second I don't think Blair would do THAT. Even though she cheated on Nate with Chuck, Sex is a big deal to her so I don't think it's who she is. This of course doesn't mean, that the writers won't create such a storyline.On the other hand, what could she possibly have done that is bad enough "she doesn't have a choice but to trust Jack Bass"??? Call me conventional but I cannot think of anything else.Anyways it would suck if Blair and Nate got back together. I'd honestly (and that's a tough thing to say) rather see him with Vanessa than with Blair.Blair and Chuck are just so perfect for eachother.Then again, I see how the writers want to expand the getting-together-storyline as much as possible, so Bluck won't just be another on-again-off-again couple like Ross/Rachel, Ryan/Marissa, Meredith/Derek or Dan/Serena.

Lol If the spoiler GGirl_CB4BW just posted is true, wouldn't it be hilarious if it turns out that the guy Serena "killed" turns out to be the missing son?
And Nate is totally blah. But nice eye candy :D Soo glad Aaron's gone, and I really don't like Vanessa. The character had some potential, but it was pretty much gone after her first episode. In her defense, though, the actress does a great job.
If Blair's with Jack, I can't imagine that it's out of her own will. And being blackmailed with humiliation by someone she considers a lesser (Vanessa) is one thing. Being blackmailed for Chuck's safety, future, etc by Jack Bass is a whole different picture. Knowing Blair, I'm sure she'll get her revenge, but it might take time.

i like vanessa. she's my favorite character in GG. vanessa and nate. :)im biased because dan and her were together in the book.

i used to like dan in the series but i kinda dont like him anymore. thoughi liked him in the books.
im just fed up with the dan-serena on and off again relationship. seriously? how many times are they gonna break up and get back together again? just stay the heck together. but then there wouldn't much be happening in GG if that happens i guess.
im much interested to find out what happens to blair and chuck, nate and vanessa than dan and serena. haha. sorry
