Warning: Spoilers for Gossip Girl episode four ahead.
If you're a fan of the original Gossip Girl who just watched episode four of the reboot, you're most likely freaking out right now because the show just gave us a major easter egg (OK, more like a slap in the face) from the original series.
In the episode, Zoya meets Milo Sparks, an eccentric ten-year-old eighth grader wise beyond his years. As I said, OG fans should have perked up at the name Milo Sparks, but if that didn't give it away, his house surely did. After Zoya meets Milo, she heads to his abode, where she notes walls filled with photos of a woman and various famous faces. The woman? Georgina Sparks.
Yes! Milo Sparks' mom is Georgina! He's the son she had in season four of the original series! OK sorry, I just had a moment, but this is seriously exciting. It's the first real connection to the original show, other than the whole Rebecca Sherman thing. We even got to see Blair Waldorf's face in this episode thanks to the weird photo the Sparks' have of Georgina's frenemy hung in their house.
So, what does this mean? Hopefully, Milo will be a recurring character on the show and maybe, we will even get to see his mom, AKA Michelle Trachtenberg. In an interview with The Daily Beast, the show's creator, Joshua Safran, did confirm there would be cameos from the original show, just not series regulars. While Georgina was a fairly main character in the later seasons, it's unclear if she falls into that category. Either way, I'm living for these easter eggs and I'm holding out hope Georgina herself makes an appearance.
