Turns out the show is jumping ahead MORE than a year–14 months, to be exact.  And Schwahn says it’s possible for Leyton to return.  Also says the show returns with Jamie’s 7th birthday, which means his birthdays have been celebrated on the show at 3 different times during the year. Like I said, interesting…

RELEVANT QUESTIONS–DON’T READ IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW!!!

I love Gossip Girl, but I think this Eyes Wide Shut storyline is the single stupidest thing the show has done, and Elle is the worst character ever. Please tell me she’s never coming back! — H.C.
MICKEY: Never say never, H.C.! But it’s a pretty safe bet that Monday’s double-cross marks the narrative end of that Pretty Woman. In the meantime, remember when we asked how to fix Gossip Girl? Well, I have it on good authority that these final episodes will address two of our problems directly, which means some fun work coming up for both Blake Lively and Chace Crawford.

RELEVANT QUESTIONS–DON’T READ IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW!!!

Antonia in Miami: Please, I need some Gossip Girl scoop on Blair and Chuck! And good news, too. I’m tired of the bad news.
I can offer you a little good news about Chuck and Blair on Gossip Girl, but unfortunately it’s just a setup for the bad news. Nate notices that Chuck and Blair have a major bond (yay!), but that leads him to respond/retaliate by asking Blair to move in with him (boo!). However, there will be some upcoming Chair scenes for you kiddos, because Mr. and Mrs. Marvelous join forces to investigate Serena’s new man, whom they both don’t much like. At least it’s something.

Belinda in Memphis, Tenn.: What’s up with season three of Gossip Girl? Do we know anything yet?
I know that Blair gets into NYU and Nate gets into Columbia.

Cynthia in Seattle: Anything coming up with the Elle/Chuck storyline on Gossip Girl?
According to Kate French (Elle), “Elle kind of steals Chuck Bass’ heart, and it gets really complicated, and he gets entangled in all of these webs of lies and different storylines that are going on. It’s very mysterious.” Hopefully Chuck won’t be smitten for too long, but then again how can we blame him when Blair’s about to go off and hook up with his BFF, Nate?

Alexandra in Lynchburg, Va.: Thanks for including all three Scotts in the Alpha Male Madness tournament. I’m personally working hard to take down Dan Scott. Now give me One Tree Hill scoop, woman!
OK, but only because you’re gunning for TV’s “man most in need of a beatdown!” Anyhoo, look for Nick Lachey and Julian to come to blows, and Skills is getting a new girl! He moves on from Nanny Deb to Jamie’s teacher (Allison Munn, whom you might remember as Amanda Bynes‘ character’s BFF on What I Like About You).
