Based on the first synopsis from this episode (entitled “Gone, Maybe Gone”) alone, it appears that our reports about Dan showing off his dark side on this new season are definitely going to end up being true:
“After a brief encounter abroad, Chuck (Ed Westwick) and Blair (Leighton Meester) make a promise to each other about their relationship, which leaves them once again apart. Dan (Penn Badgley), with some help from an unlikely ally, Georgina (guest star Michelle Trachtenberg), is writing a scathing tell-all book that can only mean trouble. As the sole head of The Spectator, Nate (Chace Crawford) is making his own decisions and is ready to go up against Gossip Girl. As word spreads that Serena (Blake Lively) is missing, the gang bands together to find her and are shocked by what they find. Kelly Rutherford, Matthew Settle and Kaylee DeFer also star. Robert John Burke and Sofia Black-D’Elia guest star.”
Of course, we have a feeling that it is the details in here about Dan and Blair that fans are going to be the most excited about, but you also have to be sure in the process to remember that there are still going to be plenty of bumps in the road. Is Dan going to be one of them? It’s possible, as we have a feeling he is still not going to be taking what happened to him at the end of last season very well.
