This week on the fifth season premiere of Gossip Girl, Serena, Chuck and Nate live it up in sunny Los Angeles while back in the cement jungle of New York Blair and Dan try to put out fires of their own making.
The episode ends with Serena, Nate and Chuck learning some dubious lessons about reinvention and responsibility. What do Dan and Blair learn? Well they learn that no matter how hard they try, some secrets are too big to keep forever. It seems like in a few months, or should we say trimesters, all will be revealed. It's a bright, fun opening which picks up storyline mysteries from last season while avoiding the more dour melodrama of last year. Also, there was Elizabeth Hurley in leopard print!
