To bridge the gap and anticipate the return of "Gossip Girl" in March, The CW have released another Gossip Guide. Speak of the Week is lesson no. 22 which is Bass-talk. It discusses the language used by Chuck Bass and those addressed to him such as Basshole, Basstard and Mother-chucker. It links to lesson number 6 which is A Blair Witch-Hunt.
Speak of the Week is released regularly as a side dish to the main telecast of the show which is taking a five weeks break. It will return on March 16 with the episode "The Age of Dissonance" which sweep poster can be viewed below. Chuck is having trouble dealing with the mystery of who his father was and how he spent his spare time. Nate catches Vanessa flirting with another guy, and in a moment of desperation, reluctantly turns to Blair for help - which turns out not as he expected.
Dan purposely ignores Serena's calls and tells Ms. Carr that things are beyond complicated between the two of them right now. Ms. Carr chooses not to take her job back and spends most of her time in an empty apartment with her new fling. At the same time, Lily and Rufus question where their relationship is going and talk very casually about merging their households, Chuck Bass, however, is strongly against the idea, and does everything in his power to stop it.
