After a week of delay, "Gossip Girl" will return on The CW this Monday, October 13 with the episode called "New Haven Can Wait" which preview has been given. The clip shows how strain the relationship between Blair and Serena is after their catfight during the Fashion Week.
Fresh from the wound, Yale-obsessed Blair said to Serena's face, "Since we're not friends anymore, let me speak frankly. You're not that smart. You lack focus and discipline. Charm is all well and good but in real life, knowledge is power. You wouldn't make the pass round the first admission at Yale no matter how hard you try." Through the preview given last week, this last line will backfire on Blair as Serena takes her words as a challenge. While waiting for an appointment with the dean of Yale, Blair is surprised to find out that the person coming out of the office is Serena.
Meanwhile, Dan is also having his own problem of university admission. After discovering that none of his recommendation letters for Yale were ever submitted, Dan frantically tries to figure out a way to salvage his chances of getting into the school. While on the Yale campus, Chuck is kidnapped by a group of Skull and Bones members and Nate hooks up with a co-ed.
On other news, it's been dished out that the depicter of Blair and Serena, Leighton Meester and Blake Lively respectively will not appear on "30 Rock" as previously reported by EW. The publication's columnist Michael Ausiello said that an insider tells him the guest appearance has been called off due to "logistical reasons". The girls were supposed to play the high school friends of Tina Fey's character in a flashback episode.
