We won't be getting our weekly dose of debauchery for at least another two weeks, but any Gossip Girl fanatic knows there are always plenty of juicy mysteries and rumors to occupy us until the next installment (episode 2.18), Blair Waldorf's Day Off, graces our small screens.
Including, for starters: What the crap is Nate doing kissing Blair?!
Read on for the latest scoop and scandal on Manhattan's elite.
That's right, the rumor from last week will turn true sometime this season on Gossip Girl: Nate and Blair are seen here getting their mack on. And it doesn't look manipulative or schemey. It looks - kind of sweet, actually.
E!'s Kristin Dos Santos got this take from one Gossip Girl insider:
"Blair and Nate are both at a crossroads. Blair has to accept she isn't going to Yale. Nate is being sucked into his family's expectations, and they are both there for each other and enjoy the familiarity. At first it's platonic, but, of course, that doesn't last long."
But don't lose hope, Chair fans! EW's Michael Ausiello also nabbed some comments on the secret snogging from producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage:
I think they look really cute together kissing in the snow, said Savage.
But who needs cute, when you could have a steamy, hot, and sexy? In other words: what does this mean for Blair and Chuck?
"Tell those Chuck and Blair fans to hang in there," said Savage. Ditto from Schwartz, who told the Chicago Tribune recently, We get that that [relationship] works for people.
Speaking of steamy, a while back a little bird (named Kristen Dos Santos) told us that soon Serena would have something in common with Anne Hathaway. Maybe we have our answer in this casting scoop:
Gossip Girl is currently casting for a sexypants jet-setter with an accent. The character, Gabriel Serrano, will be either South American, Australian or a continental European.
Gabriel is set to be in his 20's, we hear, so he's probably a love interest for Ms. van der Woodsen and/or one of her pals. So if the Hathaway parallel plays out, should we expect that this affair will turn as sour as Anne's did with her own handsome Italian crook? Guess we'll have to wait and see!
