We hate it when Us Weekly thinks of an easy photo project before we do. Like today, when they assembled a gallery of snaps of the Gossip Girl cast to show how they’ve all
gotten work done grown up so much. If you click through their slideshow, you can admire Blair’s natural blondness, Nate’s adorable side fat, and Jenny’s long lost naïveté. She wasn’t even sexualized, once upon a time! Of course, you’ll have to click back to Daily Intel when you’re through, because we’re gearing up to do another epic recap of tonight’s new show. Here’s a synopsis from the show’s Website:
Serena’s Upper East Side world is turned upside down when her former partner in all things bad, Georgina Sparks (guest star Trachtenberg), returns to Manhattan to stir up trouble and Serena’s past. When Dan (Penn Badgley) notices that Serena seems preoccupied he jumps to the conclusion that it must have something to do with Serena’s new roomie and soon-to-be step-brother, Chuck (Ed Westwick). Nate (Chace Crawford) finds romance with the last person he was expecting to connect with, Vanessa (Jessica Szohr). Jenny (Taylor Momsen) meets a new guy, Asher Hornsby (guest star Jesse Swenson), who just might be her ticket to permanent popularity.
People are saying that Jenny’s boyfriend will actually end up kissing Eric, Serena’s little brother. Could that be tonight? Let’s hope not, because we might just pull a Blair and self-destruct.
