Spoiler: Ask The Addict

Any scoop on what 90210 has planned for their season finale? — Amber
The TV Addict: Would it surprise you to learn an nod to iconic original series star Emily Valentine? No really. Whether it be by happy accident or not, 90210’s May 18 season finale will go out with a bang when things really start to heat up on Liam’s boat after a certain somebody who-shall-not-be-named discovers that Annie and Liam are a little too dedicated to practicing “safe boating” in the form of mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

Will Chuck and Blair end the season on a happily ever after? I’m worried for them. — Stacey
The TV Addict: We’re not so worried about Blair — who will have until the credits role on GOSSIP GIRL’s May 17 season finale to decide whether or not to meet Chuck at the top of the Empire State Building — as much as we’re worried for all of Manhattan. For as it turns out, April showers brings May shockers… in the form of Georgina Sparks (Michelle Trachtenberg) who returns to Manhattan… with a vengeance.

I totally gagged at the first sentence of the first question.

Villains, Part 5

30 06 2009

Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4


1. Georgina Sparks (played by Michelle Trachtenberg)

Only a teen and already a wild child, Georgina relies on alcohol and lies to make sure she gets her way–which usually means screwing over nemesis Serena (Blake Lively).  Among her heinous acts: pretending to be someone else and blackmail.

2. Gossip Girl (voiced by Kristen Bell)

She/he is the source of many problems in the halls of Constant Billard and St. Judes.  By simply exposing damaging secrets via text or her blog, Gossip Girl’s identity remains a mystery.

(click twice to watch)

I debated whether or not to included Chuck (Ed Westwick) and Blair (Leighton Meester) as villains but ultimately decided not to as I think they have many more redeeming qualities to them than any of the others I included on my list.

I think we can all agree that there are no outright villains on 90210 (yet) so my list ends here.


Gina Kincaid (Beverly Hills 90210)

Suzanne Steele (Beverly Hills 90210)

Garrett Slan (Beverly Hills 90210)

Tony Marchette (Beverly Hills 90210)

Evan Potter (Beverly Hills 90210)

Joe Patch (Beverly Hills 90210)

Eve Whitman (Dawson’s Creek)

Matt Caufield (Dawson’s Creek)

Luke Ward (The O.C.)

Oliver Trask (The O.C.)

Caleb Nichol (The O.C.)

Shandell in Houston: Any news on Michelle Trachtenberg’s new pilot?
While Michelle’s been out promoting her flick, 17 Again, she gave E! News the goods on her new show: “I wrapped Gossip Girl, and I signed on to a new NBC pilot called Mercy, a one-hour medical drama about the lives of three nurses. It’s very sexy, and by sexy I mean I learn how to do a catheter—and I can a rock a bedpan in case you ever need it.” We definitely want the best for our girl Michelle, but hopefully Georgina Sparks is not gone for good!

Vicki in Las Vegas: Gossip Girl!
Serena did not really get married, this is a bit of an off week for Blair (she’s in a funk because of her love problemos) and Chuck apologizes to Jenny for that time he tried to get up on her in the pilot (back when Gossip Girl still showed depraved indifference to everything, before it turned into a modern comedy-of-manners masterpiece), but let’s talk about the most important thing: Dorota-sodes are coming! So jealous of Verizon phone owners right now!

Petra in Austin, Texas: What’s the buzz on the Gossip Girl spinoff pilot?
Apparently “Lily” [sic] is not a full pilot. Rather, the ’80s flashbacks are half of a Gossip Girl episode (tied into Serena’s storyline), so it’s hard to judge the series as a whole, but from what insiders have seen so far, it looks good, and Krysten Ritter and Brittany Snow in particular are supposed to be awesome. Yay!

Marie in Terre Haute, Ind.: What’s going on with Peyton on One Tree Hill?
First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby boy in the baby carriage, then comes…oops, can’t tell you that part. Mwa-ha-ha-ha. Yes, we’re evil.

Emily in Napa, Calif.: Any hopes of seeing Michelle Trachtenberg on Joss Whedon‘s Dollhouse?
Don’t look for little Dawn to be back in the Jossverse any time soon. Michelle just told me that while she’s happy for her former boss, she’s not too familiar with his new show. “I haven’t even seen it. I haven’t heard much about it except it’s premiered and congratulations for that!” Don’t be too disappointed, though. Her lack of knowledge on all things Dollhouse is simply because she’s too busy playing the evil Georgina Sparks again. “I’m most excited to be back on Gossip Girl. It has wonderful people, and it’s really nice just having my first day back, hearing ‘Welcome back.’ ”

Drew in Boston: Hey, I’m dying without my Gossip Girl fix! Please, is there any hope for Serena and Dan now that they have a half-dead-sibling? Anything else you can spill?
Correction: They have a half sibling who is fully alive and whom we will see on the show! And because of that and more, I’m told by a source: “Serena and Dan are really over.” Done. Kaput. No hope for them this season. Sorry! Anyone need a hug? Join me in the comments. As for the rest of the season, Serena will be cozying up big time to her new boy-toy (played by Armie Hammer) and a source tells me: “The last few episodes of the season are chock-full of some of the biggest OMFG moments of the series.” I think I just tinkled a little. Why do I love this show so? Darn you, Josh Schwartz and your TV crack!

Martin in New York: One Tree Hill! Will we get a wedding?
Lucas and Peyton’s wedding will happen this season. However, how it will end is a whole other story. (Here’s hoping he doesn’t say the name Rachel.) Also, get ready to see the softer (but still bitchy!) side of Victoria.

Heidi in Bristol, Conn.: I can’t wait for Georgina to come back to Gossip Girl! Any chance we’ll see more of her next season, too?
I’m just as excited as you are, especially after all of the goodies we just revealed about Georgina’s return!
Michelle Trachtenberg (Georgina) tells us nothing has been decided just yet about her Gossip Girl fate, but her answer did have us leaning toward a yes! “A character like Georgina is so fantastic, and there are so many elements that are exciting and untapped, so you never know.” And while she has nothing planned, Michelle went on to say that she would definitely be open to a full-time TV gig, whether it’s G.G. or something new. “I think the wonderful thing about doing TV shows is that you get a few months out of the year to do films as well, so you get the best out of every world.” Did you hear that Josh Schwartz? Start working on another masterpiece for this girl!

Wallace in Orlando, Fla.: How about some 90210?
With love from our hot and sunny zip code to yours: Naomi’s sister Jen is coming to town, and if you thought Naomi was manipulative and a schemer, just wait till you meet big sis! Also, Adrianna and Navid’s bachelor and bachelorette parties put things into perspective for both characters, including a possible gateway back into drugs for pregnant Adrianna, which would elicit a sternly worded letter from yours truly to that little trollop.
