Its the first day of school on Gossip Girl and goodness, you haven't seen anything yet as to how things are gonna go down.
Dan Humphrey and Serena van der Woodsen haven't seen each other since their breakup, so things are awkward. They try to be all grown up about it and skip to the friends part, but a new girl gets in the way. Amanda is her name.
She reads all of the same stuff Dan reads, so he immediately invites her to lunch, which was innocent enough but instantly triggers some class warfare.
Serena feels hurt, embarrassed and jealous. Blair Waldorf sees this and goes on the attack. She tries to befriend Amanda in order to bond her to the girl code and render her unable to date a friends ex. Chuck explains this to Dan, who is typically confused.
