One of these will DIE!


You may have heard -- a pivotal Gossip Girl character will soon be laid to rest, setting off a series of aftershocks that will reverberate well into next year. By using both Met-step chatter and common sense, I narrowed the field of candidates to the following five characters -- one of whom, a source confirms -- is the victim.


Vanessa (Jessica Szohr)

Why She'll Die: As much as I adore Szohr, let's face it, her alter ego is easily the most expendable of Girl's core clique. As a bonus, eliminating Vanessa would get Gossip Girl author Cecily von Ziegesar off producers' backs.

Why She Won't: Who'd steam everyone's lattes?


Bart (Robert John Burke)

Why He'll Die: His death would be a massive story generator: Not only would it pit Lily and Chuck against each other in a battle over the millionaire's estate, but it would add a new layer of angst to Ed Westwick's brooding scion.

Why He Won't: Come on -- killing the old guy? Way too obvious.


Nate (Chace Crawford)

Why He'll Die: Rumor has it that Crawford recently made some noise about wanting a fatter paycheck. Killing off his character would nip a potential salary dispute in the bud.

Why He Won't: He's the prettiest one on the show, for chrissakes!


Rufus (Matthew Settle)

Why He'll Die: It would rid the world of Lincoln Hawk and Dan would be forced to grow a pair.

Why He Won't: His unrequited romance with Lily is where Gossip's true heart lies.


Georgina (Michelle Trachtenberg)

Why She'll Die: Everyone loves a good, old-fashioned murder mystery.

Why She Won't: For starters, she's not currently on the show. Plus, producers would be foolish to permanently wipe out the Alexis to Serena's Krystle.

i hope it's Bartreasons:Vanessa-i just think he is great.Nate-you're right. he is the pretty one. And I think they need him. Also they have all this drama with his money etc. I am sure they would take him to college where everyone hates himRufus-NO! You can't kill of their dad. And the love cycle with him and Lily is to interesting.Georgina-She isn't even in it at the moment...but i'd like to think she will make a comeback to shake things up.Although i am sure it would be an interesting 'who done it?'
As you said, if Bart dies there would be the fight over the money and i am sure there will be a few scandals.
