The caption on The CW website for Gossip Girl‘s return is the incredibly titillating “Nate needs a new investor”. Um… what? Who gives a damn? It’s been weeks since Gossip Girl last aired and the only thing I care about is a certain perfect couple (a certain high maintenance princess-thing and a certain published author, for those of you who weren’t clear). Dodgy marketing aside, the promo for this episode–which is, by the way, wittily titled “Con Heir”, a pun on American brand Con Air for those of you out of the know–promises a lot so I only hope it delivers.
The episode summary is as follows:
DESMOND HARRINGTON RETURNS AS JACK BASS / BILLY BALDWIN GUEST STARS – Chuck invites Jack (Harrington) to town to thank him for saving his life, but finds the trip doesn’t go exactly as planned. Blair and Dan attempt to consummate their new relationship — but unexpected roadblocks get in their way. Meanwhile, Ivy finds an unlikely ally in William (Baldwin) in her quest to be accepted on the Upper East Side, and Nate is hopeful a new investor will save his newspaper. Blake Lively, Kelly Rutherford and Matthew Settle also star. Joe Lazarov directed the episode written by Annemarie Navar-Gill.
