HBO Max’s ‘Gossip Girl’ Introduces Milo Sparks, The Son Of Georgina Sparks

If Gossip Girl’s Nate Archibald shoutout made you giddy, put together on your jaw to hit the ground. Episode 4 has some of the insane throwbacks to the unique collection conceivable, a twist so wild it’s virtually parody. And but in some way, it really works. Spoilers forward for Gossip Girl Episode 4. 

“Fire Walks with Z” sees Zoya (Whitney Peak) in a foul spot. Though it’s her birthday, all she needs to do is neglect in regards to the day in remembrance of her late mom who died whereas giving start to her. Naturally, the Upper East Side has different plans for this transplanted Buffalo princess. While Obie (Eli Brown) showers her with meals vans, Julien’s (Jordan Alexander) minions concoct a much more explosive reward for the birthday woman: potential eviction.

That’s as a result of Luna (Zion Moreno) leaks to each the housing committee and to Gossip Girl that Zoya and her father have been dwelling in her grandmother’s rent-controlled house with out granny. Oops. Somehow this explicit battle will get elevated to a battle of competing events. It’s when Zoya is sitting on the steps of the Met, defeated, {that a} literal little one holding a teacup seems at her aspect.

“Forgive me for eavesdropping. Sounds like you have a problem. I’m a great problem solver,” he says ominously.

Zoya repeatedly tries to brush him apart as a result of, once more, he’s a literal little one. But this curious tyke refuses. Finally, he tells her that she higher Google his identify if she is aware of what’s finest for her. That identify? Milo Sparks.

That’s proper: Georgina Sparks’ (Michelle Trachtenberg) son is within the new Gossip Girl. And we are able to already inform he takes after his mother. The second Georgina appeared within the unique collection she brought about mayhem. Her first few episodes revolved round pseudo-torturing her longtime pal Serena (Blake Lively) with inappropriate items. When these gags didn’t make Serena surrender her new good woman methods, Georgina took the highway much less taken and drugged Serena. Yeah, she was at all times pulling that type of arrest-worthy nonsense, which brings us to Milo.

In Season 3, a really pregnant Georgina appeared at Dan’s (Penn Badgley) loft and satisfied him the child was his. They performed home for a summer season earlier than the reality got here out. Georgina had a quick affair with a married Russian man named Serge, whose spouse threatened to kill her as soon as she came upon in regards to the being pregnant. That’s why Georgina fled to Dan, probably the most steady romantic prospect in her life. All of that stuff about Dan being a father was simply one other con. Adding to how horrible this explicit scheme was, Dan signed Milo’s start certificates, legally making Dan Milo’s father.

Our 2021 Milo (Azhy Robertson) even alludes to the affair that led to his start. After revealing his full identify, he mentions that his precise final identify is Ivanov. But this eighth grader is a Sparks by means of and thru. Despite the truth that his mother could be mad at him for taking up such a straightforward venture, Milo spends all of Episode 4 serving to Zoya. He sends bots after Julien, spon-cons her joint celebration with Zoya, and — you guessed it — medication her meals. Classic Sparks, proper there. When Luna and Monet (Savannah Smith) understand he’s the one behind all of this chaos, they aren’t even stunned.

Again, this little one is 10 years outdated. Ten. Yet already, he’s so ingrained within the very grownup drama of this universe that apparently Luna owes him for some previous scheme and everybody is aware of him on sight. How has he completed that? Who else owes him? And what in Balenciaga’s identify does his day-to-day life appear like? Georgina at all times wished to be in the midst of Gossip Girl’s major clique, probably not out of any sense of loyalty or neighborhood, however to trigger mischief. Through her son she’s created one thing she by no means was, a tiny lord of scheming who’s revered by all with no likelihood of being despatched away to troublesome Bible camps. She should be endlessly proud.

The child even talks like his mother. While initially serving to Zoya, Milo leads her right into a research full of photos of none apart from Georgina. “My mom taught me early on that it isn’t enough to go to war. Wars never end. What you need is a coup,” Milo says, searching for a tweet to cancel Julien. “Coups are the only way to really gain control. You assassinate the leader, which throws everything into chaos, and during the melee you install yourself and restore order like the savior you are.”

Never in one million years did we expect the brand new Gossip Girl wanted a borderline nefarious little one. But now that we’ve seen Milo, he’s all the pieces this reboot was lacking. Give us extra chaos, extra bullying, extra schemes, extra left-field throwbacks. Give us extra Milo Sparks.
