Tough challenges await our favorite Upper East Siders as they head to college. But adjusting to new school grounds isn't the only bump on the road for the onetime Queen Bee.
According to Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello, Blair's (Leighton Meester) misery will unfold as early as episode 2 since this mark's Georgina's (Michelle Trachtenberg) arrival as her roommate. As reported previously, even though Mercy, the medical drama in which Trachtenberg stars as a rookie nurse, will begin on NBC earlier than expected, Trachtenberg will still be able to fulfill her three-episode arc on Gossip Girl.
Ausiello also hints, "look for C and B to take an unorthodox approach to warding off the seven-week itch" while a major Gossip guy decides not to go to college very early in the season."
