There is drama coming this season, but it isn’t for Blair and Chuck. Simon Miller is returning to the series as Patrick, and this will cause trouble for Serena, played by Blake Lively. According to Wet Paint on Friday, the actor said the following about his character:
“Yeah, you’re going to see that Patrick is not the alcoholic mess that he was last time. This is a more reformed Patrick. This is like Patrick after rehab. But there’s always the temptation of addiction still lurking, so that’s the challenge for this new Patrick. You know, can he beat the addiction? Can he stay clean?”
Blake Lively is currently taking a small break from filming Gossip Girl to work on Oliver Stone’s next project, Savages. #
A couple of interesting questions:
- How does this affect Serena?
- Does Patrick’s return affect Serena’s job?
- Will Patrick affect Chuck’s “sobriety?”
In the grand scheme of things - will this have any effect at all?
Only time will tell.
BTW: I wonder when Blake will return filming or if she is already returning back to filming - the article was written August 20th, and I just saw pictures of her returning to NY from LA on a red eye.
