The first stage of Chuck's seduction is teased in a just-released clip of "Gossip Girl". Blair shoves her boyfriend to seduce the openly gay Josh who happens to be the NYU's head of freshman affairs responsible for picking who will give the important toast. Appearing as Blair's competition would be Vanessa who is hoping to finally win her mother Gabriela's approval.
This would be the episode where Chuck kisses another guy. Neal Bledsoe, a relatively unknown actor, was cast as Josh. Bledsoe told EW in an interview that despite being manipulated by Blair and Chuck, his character has "a very unexpected and darker motivation about it."
The other clip shows Olivia giving Dan a one-kind watch which can compliment its user. Dan later on invites Olivia to meet Rufus and Lily, which leads to all sorts of problems for the new couple. Also in the episode airing October 19, Serena and Nate team up to help Carter.
Recently, it was said that Lady GaGa would appear on the show in a later episode. Penn Badgley who plays Dan has confirmed on the red carpet of his new movie "The Stepfather" that the singer is indeed coming. "Yeah, she's a part of the threesome - I'm kidding," he said to MTV in reference to another issue that there would be a threesome. He added, "She's not, but there is a threesome and there is Lady GaGa, so you gotta keep watching."
