Gossip Girl Preview: Chuck and Blair Team Up...But Who Are They Plotting Against?

Gossip Girl is throwing Chuck and Blair together again.  But hold on to your horses, shippers, because the former couple is only reuniting to scheme. Although, we have to admit we love seeing them scheme together. In this week's Gossip Girl , Lola discovered that she's Serena's half sister and Lily set up Carol to be arrested for fraud.  Nate also went digging into Diana's past, convinced there was something suspicious about her.  As it turns out, he may have been right.  Nate seems convinced that Elizabeth is actually Chuck's mother.  But the identity of Chuck's mother isn't as important as the identity of his father, particularly since Chuck now believes that Jack is actually his father, not his uncle.  For more on the episode, read our recap . In the upcoming April 30 episode, Nate and Chuck seem determined to learn the truth about Diana's secrets, believing they'll lead them to the truth about Jack.  How do you take down a schemer?  You find an even bigger schemer!  Naturally, Blair is recruited to lead the team, consisting of Chuck, Nate, Serena and Lola.  Will they learn Diana's secret?  We sure hope so!
