An impromptu wedding on Gossip Girl—inconceivable! I was pleasantly surprised Monday night when Blair's mother Eleanor Waldorf (Margaret Colin) and her new beau Cyrus Rose (Princess Bride's Wallace Shawn) tied the knot under a chuppah. Eleanor was elegant in an ivory blazer and Cyrus was stunning in a white suit and silver yarmulke. The celebration was sweet and simple—a far cry from Lily and Bart's elaborate nuptials last season. As for what's next for the happy couple, fans will have to wait until the show returns to the CW on January 5 to find out. —Kathryn Papanek
