After a little bit of an early Spring Break, “Gossip Girl” will return with new episodes on Monday (April 2). And it looks like the party will just be getting started.
In a preview video with producers, we learn a little bit about each of the storylines that will be emerging in the new episode. The most notable item for fans of the Dan (Penn Badgley)/Blair (Leighton Meester) pairing is that the two want to consummate their relationship, but this proves easier said than done. It also creates quite an embarrassing situation at one point for Blair. That said, we’re pretty certain they’ll find that practice makes perfect.
As for Ivy (Kaylee DeFer) and her inheritance, this should be quite the enjoyable segment. Nothing like watching people scheme (or maybe even grovel) to get back what they believe to be rightfully theirs. We’re guessing that Ivy has learned enough manipulation skills from her time on the Upper East Side to battle with the best of them.
Producers also tease that someone from the recent past will return to help Nate (Chace Crawford) out with The Spectator. While they’re being coy as to who, we’re somewhere between 99 and 101 percent sure this means that Diana Payne (Elizabeth Hurley) is the person in question. We’re this confident mostly because it this timing meshes with what EP Josh Safran told Zap2it earlier in the year.
As for Serena (Blake Lively) and the Gossip Girl computer, what could possibly go wrong with this Pandora’s box?
Uh oh. Uh oh.
