Tonight, there's a new Queen B in town — and her name starts with J. Gossip Girl returns from its strike-induced break with the first of five new episodes, which find a disgraced Blair ceding control of her Upper East Side minions to the rising star from Brooklyn, Jenny Humphrey.
We've already heard quite a lot about what's to come over the next few weeks: More Bad Serena, the arrival of Michelle Trachtenberg as Georgina Sparks, a potential wedding, and the possible outing of one of our characters. Tonight's episode, "The Blair B*tch Project," sees Blair tentatively returning to school after her public, pregnancy scare-related scandal — but at least she has Serena by her side. Serena has issues of her own to deal with, though, not least of which is adjusting to living with her new future stepbrother, Chuck Bass.
The CW has been trying to drum up interest in these episodes, what with a salacious ad campaign and the end of free online streaming. Will it work? I guess we'll find out tonight. You can check out a couple of preview clips for the episode if you
