'Gossip Girl' Season 4 Brings the Pathetic to Paris

Kim Conte

It's hard to admit when your favorite show is about to crash and burn. I had an inkling that it might be time to move on from Gossip Girl at the end of last season. And the new preview for Season 4 only confirms my fears.

Let's just say it's going to take a lot more than Paris to get me excited about these ridiculous, not to mention redundant, plot lines.

Blair and Serena head to Paris the best of friends. But when Serena takes a little dip in the fountain courtesy of Blair, it appears they have -- as per usual -- entered frenemy territory. Anyone else ready for a story line that doesn't revolve around Blair and Serena hating each other? Evolve already! On the bright side: At least Serena isn't pining over Dan (although I'm sure that relationship will rear its disgusting head later on in the episode).

And speaking of monotonous story lines, it looks like Nate is up to his typical antics.

Now, I know you are going to be absolutely SHOCKED by this information, but Chuck Bass lives! When last we saw him, he was bleeding from a gunshot wound. But here he looks alive and well and hot as ever.

But then the writers have to ruin our Chuck moment by threatening to make him get back together with Blair (again). I'm hoping the rumors are true -- that Clemence Poesy (Fleur Delacour from Harry Potter) is indeed making an appearance as Chuck's new woman -- and the scene below is only a tease.

Finally, (and unfortunately) we have Dan. I had hoped the "Georgina's pregnant with Dan's baby" was a figment of my imagination. Yet, here he is with a baby. Please, please spin-off to another show that I'll never watch. And take Vanessa with you.
