People closest to Blair are experiencing the aftermath of her latest act in the next episode of "Gossip Girl". Instead of going to honeymoon with Louis, she is heading to the airport with Dan, leaving her best friend Serena and her mother Eleanor asking about her whereabouts.
At the airport, Blair attracts the attention of other passengers. When one girl approaches her, she tries to elude her pursuers by claiming she and Dan are just decoys. Aside from this problem, she must make a difficult decision about her future, the consequences of which could hurt those she loves most.
In the meantime, Serena takes the blame for an incident with Gossip Girl in order to protect someone she loves. Georgina (Michelle Trachtenberg), who is still in the town after the royal affair, smells the scent of scandal and decides to follow its trail.
"The Backup Dan" will air Monday, February 6 at 8/7c on The CW. Speaking at last week's screening of the 100th episode, executive producer Josh Safran said that the next outing will be about "Chuck and Serena together dealing with Dan and Blair together." He additionally noted that when Serena "discovers what's happening between Blair and Dan," it will "wrankle" her.
When asked if Georgina is the "new" Gossip Girl, Safran said that Georgina has the role of Gossip Girl, which opens up more storylines. He added that seeing the process of "what she does do to get her tips is fun and a new thing." He went on assuring that Kristen Bell's voice will still be heard as the Gossip Girl.
