    Come on, none of you have guessed it’s probably Dorota????? 

  • Stephanie

    why would Dorota put a pregnancy test in blair and serena’s bathroom???

  • Anonymous

    It was in the trash on the very top and I’m guessing Dorota probably uses the bathroom too, lol.  It was too obvious to be Blair or Serena to throw it right on the top.

  • gg

    but she allready have a baby and did not look at d pregnancy test when she went to put the garbage away

  • gg

    who the helk was that gut that serena was talking too that cute guy

    OMG, most adults have more than one kid, lol.  If she threw it in the trash why would she pull it out, it said it was positive so whoever it is knows they are already pregnant, if it wasn’t Dorota she would have seen it and picked it up and went OMG, miss Blair, blah, blah, blah……I’m sure it’s Dorota.

  • fie

    the help usually has a separate bathroom
    sometimes an own entrance and staircase so since they made everything very upper east i doubt that dorotha would have the same bathroom

    While that is true I’m sure the help uses other bathrooms now and then, even in real life.  It’s not going to be S or B so that only leaves Dorota or the mom and since it was sitting right on the top and Dorota didn’t acknowelge it like OMG, I’m sure it’s her.  I can’t wait for it to come back on!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Destiny988

    Dorota already has a baby!!!!! It is obviously Blair’s and now she won’t know if it is Chuck’s or Prince Louis!!! 

  • Livvycooke

    k I guess when blair first had the test it was negative but than turned to a positive and is it chucks or is it the prince’s I think its chucks

  • Amy

    Okay Guys, Here is my Theories about the Pregnancy test..In the book it’s Elanors (Blairs mothers) who is Pregnant, BUT this series has been nothing like the books, AND why would she be using the bathroom thats in the middle of Serena and Blairs rooms..Whoever took the test obviously knows that they’re pregnant AND at the end we see Serena all smiling and happy and if she was pregnant don’t you think she would look and seem stressed and worried, BUT we don’t see Blair leaving with the prince because if its hers she would look worried and it would be too obvious..ALSO Serena hasn’t done ‘it’ very recently and at the end it says ‘Three Weeks Later’ and If she were pregnant I think you might be able to tell..I really want it to be Blair who is pregnant with Chuck because they are meant for each other, And a baby Bass would be cute. :P

  • !@#$

    It is totally chucks
